Limiting the Government; Re-Creating the Republic

Because the issue keeps arising and I tire of re-making the same arguments over and over, here’s a bit on my objection to an Art-5 Convention of States (“COS”).

The government we have now routinely ignores the Constitution. This includes all three federal branches and the governors of every state. We HAVE the Constitution (with one exception, below) that we need to ensure our personal freedom, liberty and prosperity. We have the laws we need, for the most part, to do so.

Neither the Constitution nor the laws are enforced.

Nothing about a COS will change this. The idea that […]

Dems: Power not Policy.

POWER: it’s what identity politics CAN ONLY BE, and IS ONLY, about. If Dems cared about policy, they’d argue policy.

They don’t.

Discussion by Democrats is not about the working man & woman or economic mobility. It’s not about the Middle Class or economic policy & results. Dems don’t campaign on increasing, but on decreasing Americans’ security in our homes, neighborhoods, communities, schools, our borders and across our nation. The Left doesn’t campaign on the results of education policy they have owned since FDR.

They can campaign on none of these honestly. It’s why lying that “you can keep your […]

The Deep State is not new

Ike spent his presidency fighting against his own Pentagon because he didn’t want a huge conventional military to go adventuring. He knew modern war as no one else did, or likely ever will again, and saw no point in wasting lives or treasure on foolish adventurism, & told our enemies to stand down or get nuked. They stood down. He hated CIA and, after the U2 shoot down, never again spoke to them. He warned us about the Military-Industrial-Complex when he left.

To say we didn’t listen is the understatement of the post-Enlightenment Age.

Nixon likely would not have intervened […]

We are NOT ‘All In This Together’

We fought one Cold War against communism. If you don’t get that another Cold War between Liberty and communism is happening again between our own citizens, and is far more likely to turn hot, it’s time to wake the hell up.

Our proxy wars are not in Vietnam, Korea, Grenada – they are in Berkeley, San Jose, Colorado State, Dartmouth. At polling places, PTA meetings, City Councils.

The GOPe thinks this is a disagreement in how to reach common goals.

There ARE no common goals. Every piece of blather about “we’re all in this together,” or, “we all are Americans,” […]

Spying on Trump Only a Tactic

It occurs to ask: What was Hillary, what was obama, really up to by spying on Trump?

Weaponizing our government against our citizens was a strategy – not a tactic. It was years in the making. It was F&F, IRS, DHS…

All these people in mid-2016 KNEW she had it in the bag. Was she, with the help of obama, just laying the groundwork for a true police state after her coronation?

I doubt these people, obama holdovers, were seriously concerned about keeping their jobs under his heir. The idea they were “auditioning” for Hillary seems naive.

Was she just […]
