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…
The 27th amendment to the United States Constitution was submitted to Congress for ratification on September 25th, 1789. This amendment, which added limits on how Congress could give themselves pay raises, took an unbelievable 202 years, 7 months, 12 days to finally be ratified. Even then, it seemed only to be ratified unintentionally. The average ratification time of the remaining 26 amendments is only 1 year, 8 days. This disparity makes it hard to dispute an apparent double standard when it comes to congressional self-regulation. Read more…
In a recent article the Washington Examiner quoted Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) as saying “The only thing Putin respects is strength… At this point the Russians are openly laughing at the president.” It’s not just Russia, it seems the entire world is laughing at Obama. The only people with any fear of his regime are American citizens. The increasingly violent police, federal authorities and tyrannical legislation and executive orders leaves my head spinning.

Reason Magazine published an article last week reviewing all of President Obama’s failures before U.S. courts. It’s an impressively extensive list for a man who claims to be an expert on American constitutional law. Many of his administration’s arguments fail to persuade even the most liberal judges, including those appointed by his own administration. He can’t even get the support of many judges he put on the bench. Now, that shows you just how ridiculous many of his administration’s positions really are.

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.
