I’ve often held that Vietnam is THE defining moment in our post-war history.
I bring it up here only to make a point. I know people are bored with it, and that’s unfortunate, for its lessons still need to be learned.
The most important of these is this: Had 100,000 Middle Class American kids stood their ground, said – and believed, “Hell no, we won’t go,” and been willing to go to jail for their beliefs – rather than to Canada and Sweden – tens of thousands of American lives would have been saved – and arguably hundreds of […]
While SCOTUS ruminates Burwell, while the governors await word of the fates of their budgets based on how SCOTUS holds, and while Left and Right harangue one another over subsidies, death spirals, what someone meant, who can and can’t afford what, and while we all argue over what was left on the edit floor by those who wrote this damned law, it seems everyone is missing the only salient point of Burwell.

The Swiss voted to reduce immigration Sunday. They are not members of the EU, but have a “Special Relationship.” Their EU self-appointed overseers did not like it and are expressing their disdain for the citizens of Switzerland for valuing their sovereignty, and will do whatever they think they can get away with to destroy the will of this nation’s free citizens.
The parallels with America ought to be widely recognized. In America the States created the federal government and gave it specific, limited powers. America became an economic powerhouse. The federal government began abusing the powers it was given, and […]
