Our friendly northern neighbor is often touted by American liberals for their free universal health-care and left-leaning tendencies. What they constantly forget to mention is that the country they claim to be so perfect also lacks the “separation of church and state” that they so passionately profess their love with. Not only is their no implied legal separation, but their constitution appoints their government as an official sponsor of the Church of England, and therefor it’s child, the Anglican Church of Canada. Their country’s Charter of Rights and Constitution explicitly states “Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law.” Their Head of State, the British Monarch, is also the Head of the Church of England and official “Defender of the Faith.” Read more…
Despite the fact that the Supreme Court’s current case-load consists almost exclusively of judicial review cases, the Constitution gives the courts no authority to take such action. The courts assume this power based on a 1794 Supreme Court ruling which first declared a law unconstitutional. The power of judicial review is a serious conflict of interest issue, giving the federal government the power to judge the constitutionality of its own laws. It also gives an unintended amount of power to the judicial branch of the U.S. government, which was originally meant to be the weakest branch of the federal government. Read more…
Now days, when you see the President of the United States pass a U.S. Marine or another service-member you’ll see a quick exchange of salutes. Most don’t know that this tradition was only recently established. Prior to 1981, the service-member would salute the President, but it was never reciprocated until President Ronald Reagan began the custom. As you can probably imagine, even this seemingly innocent change didn’t come without it’s critics. Read more…
When I was a kid Mother Against Drunk Driving was huge. You saw their logo and name everywhere. Now despite all the DUI legislation they have passed, they refuse to quit and continue to push for more. The original founder, Candy Lightner, left the organization because it was becoming too “neo-prohibitionist”, later lobbying on behalf of the American Beverage Institute to fight legislation lowering the legal DUI limit to .08% BAC.

Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) showed that there is no level “too low” to stoop to retain his seat in the U.S. senate. With his tea party challenger running away with it, Cochran made a deal with the devil, selling his soul for a few more years of power. As the runoff election got closer, Cochran’s desperate campaign began distributing flyers in black neighborhoods leveling ridiculous accusations of racism against his opponent, including efforts to suppress black voting. The flyers focused on encouraging democrats to come vote for Cochran in the republican primary. Read more…

A Libertarian Case for Net Neutrality
As a libertarian you may be uneasy with the concept of net neutrality. Like me, you feel inexplicably drawn to this neutrality but feel guilty for it. You think to yourself, “I’m a free-market libertarian, by God! Regulation is wrong! Why is my instinct betraying me?” It’s because we don’t live in perfect world. We live in an economy that is far from free and is infested with government regulations and corporate manipulation. The internet service industry is a picturesque example of this.
How To: Help Veterans and Other Americans
Here is a simple system I’ve developed to help people. I’m sharing this secret because sometimes it seems as if it hides from most in plain sight. Read it, and apply it to your daily routine. Results are guaranteed.
If you want to help veterans, THEN GO HELP VETERANS. You don’t need a Legion or VFW to help someone. In fact, you’ll be much more effective without one.
If you want to help Americans, HELP THEM. They’re all around you. You don’t need a church, civic organization or government to help the people you live among and talk to every day.
All you need to do is step up and do something.
A simple pearl of wisdom brought to you by Ben Spera.
