The Constitution Party is stepping on the toes of some of the wealthiest and most powerful conservatives in America. Party leaders are calling them out for making millions each year off of the patriotic political cause. They want the nation’s conservatives to know they could have a real effect in America, on the ground and in the precincts, by sending some of that hard earned money to those putting in the actual work, and not just those appearing on their TV screens and in their In Box.
The Constitution Party is on a roll. New websites, new newsletters, rallies, voter drives, fundraisers – what impressive grassroots action will the party’s National Chairman Frank Fluckiger announce next? Apparently, he’s going to take a well-aimed and well-deserved shot at some of the patriotic, libertarian, and freedom movement’s most beloved individuals and groups. They don’t name names, although a few of them were immediately apparent to this author.

Admiral Mike Mullen, the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, asserts that the “most significant threat to our national security is our debt.”
The money we spend on weaponry — and the fingers that fire them — is staggering. For example, the 2012 Department of Defense budget (more than the annual defense budgets of the 10 next largest military spenders combined, including Russia and China) was almost 100 percent of the U.S. deficit that year.
Neo-con foreign policy is expensive — we are shooting a quarter million bullets for each dead Afghani and Iraqi insurgent — however those military excursions “only” cost Uncle Sam about $90 billion in 2013, and these war-making expenditures fall outside of Defense Department budget accounting.At first look, spending on defense and homeland security appears to be about 20 percent of the government’s budget, or about $552 billion in 2013. But wait, there’s more. Continue reading →

I’m always looking for the principle behind a thing, the key thing, the root thing, the thing that makes it all work. I can’t walk into a building without starting to analyze the structure to figure out which is a load-bearing wall, which is a facade, what holds this up and what supports that.
I’m that way with politics and government too. I want to find the foundational principles that make for good government, the eternal truths that can tell me which policies are right or wrong. I want to make sure I’m getting to the root of the matter and am not being distracted by something superficial. Continue reading →

FROM JEFFERSON TO WILSON
How did the United States change from the republic envisioned by the framers into a monarchy with its royal court that it has become today? I started thinking about this when I was analyzing the State of the Union speech given by President Barack Obama recently and I decided to go back and look at State of the Union speeches given in the past. What I found was that Thomas Jefferson, when he became President, decided not to give a State of the Union speech at all because he thought that walking out in front of a joint session of Congress reminded him of the British monarchy that the country had gone through a war to be rid of. Instead of a speech, he wrote a letter to Congress, intentionally vague, so that it wouldn’t seem like a royal decree and then he had a clerk read it out loud to the Congressmen and Senators.
