Properly functioning Capitalism requires a moral people... just as our Government requires a moral people to operate properly. Is government in America functioning as it was intended? Why not? The moral compass that once directed our ship of state and sat at the head of commerce has been lost.

The more Muslims a country admits, the more terror attacks occur.
As the majority of Europe is falling victim to mass Muslim invasion, Poland remains the only major country immune to Islamic terror plots, via The Federalist Papers.
It is obvious that Poland has no attacks and those countries with the greatest numbers of refugees... have the largest number of terrorist incidents reported.

The Congress exist because of the Constitution... the Constitution exist because of the Militia and an armed People. The rule of law is secured by a proper and functioning militia... See: Article 1, Section 8, Clauses 14 and 15. To this end, the Militia must be armed with the weapons necesary to secure the Law and with it... the cause of liberty.
The Militia is present to enforce the law... against enemies of the People. The 2nd Amendment was established to institutionalize the…Continue

Memories God's Golden Gift

"Man is born free but every where he is in chains..." Rousseau.
Yet, with tedious labor we do strive against the wind... against the forlorn cry... liberty once gained, yet lost in time... liberty remains a fleeting dream. Shall we suffer the pain of tyranny or mount with wings the hallowed quest... for that which so deliberately we seek... this liberty, this faint apparition of our fathers, many.
Liberty is not obtained thru idle banter, it is the fruit of…Continue

Memories of the Forgiven
We are often haunted by memories that refuse to be forgotten… we try to hide, but they always find us. We think we are finished with the past… done, but we can never erase the indelible ink of histories mark… They never die, not in the cloak of our mortal state… in the eye of the flesh. As long as we live, they hold us captive. The haunting memories of nights long lost, sooner bring us too remember, sorrows of ill spent days… when youths…Continue
Words Have Meaning...
"How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words!" quote, Samuel Adams.
Words have meaning... but never so clear, that a tyrant can not subvert and convert them to his purpose. Hence, for justice to prevail... a MORAL people must hold the heads of justice accountable for their words.
'Tis but the sound of fury, unleashed in the souls of tyrants... that corrupt words destroy the…

The exploitation of the poor and their wages must stop... International Corporations must not use their wealth, power and positions, to yoke the poor with slave wages. America must not permit unrestrained trade with corporations, that exploit the disparities in world markets: wages, environmental, health, safety and labor standards, must be uniform within the world's economic system. …Continue

Which came first... the egg or the chicken? Labor and Capital... are mutually intertwined and when in harmony produce the greatest good. Can one exist without the other? Was it labor that produced Capital or was it Capital that generated labor...jobs?
The problem with many is that they are ungrateful ... ignoring the contribution of others to the common good. Labor and Capital are complementary components that drive the engines of wealth creation. Like husband and wife the…Continue

Long grows the shadow of tyranny upon the land... cold the hand of the despot upon our liberty falls. Who will stand, who will go, who will answer, the call of the fallen... Whose blood, did pave the streets of liberty with sorrows tears. We few, we few men, whose lives did bleed cry out from above... Come, stay the course true, and live in peace forever renewed; die not the cowards curse, make sure freedom's thirst... drink long this day of liberty for tomorrow comes…Continue

On this day in 1939, a wonderful and beautiful song entertained America, “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” became an instant hit and remains an Iconic classic.

This Iconic production came out the same year as “Gone With The Wind” another blockbuster of a film, and a testimony to Americana and its glorious spirit of innovation and renewal. Both were classical examples…Continue

Major Corporations moved off shore... abandoning the US because they can make significantly greater profit by manufacturing in the third world ... than in the US. It's all about profit, whether those profits are increased by avoiding union wages, OSHA and EPA regulations or taxes... It all boils down to a better bottom line... Profit.
Before, the US engaged Free Trade Policy.... the global corporations were unable to move off shore due to tariffs…Continue
Never so few gave so much for their fellow man... than the 56 original signors of the 'Declaration of Independence'. Out of their sacrifice and devotion to liberty our heritage was secured and now we stand anew ... to be tested in our resolve too serve liberty. Will we measure up to our name sake and the call of liberty as did they?
Shall we all rally round the flag... too, lift it high that our fellow patriot may see and rise to the occasion or…Continue
