The US Constitution Is As Plain As the Federalists (Who Wrote It)

THE SECOND AMENDMENT SECURES FOR the individual a right to keep and bear arms to preserve the security of a free state. A plain and solid reading of the language our forefathers fought and died many of them to leave us as our greatest American inheritance is not solely a restriction on the federal government. It is a restriction on ALL governing bodies. As one will note upon reading it, there are no local, state, federal or UN qualifiers. This amendment fears and contradicts ALL levels of government. "A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State,...

Be that as it may, the McDonald decision...

An American Dilemma: Is Civil War Looming?

OES THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA need a drastic realignment of ideas and physical framework to deter a second American Revolution or Civil War and provide direction for the coming age where complexity is the norm? Yes. That is the opinion outlined in the penetrating Ludwig Von Mises Institute essay "On the Impossibility of Limited Government" described in more stringent detail in a most riveting book all patriots and political junkies should find time to absorb—Reassessing the Presidency: "At the outset of the American "experiment," writes Hans-Hermann Hoppe, "the tax burden imposed on Americans was light, indeed almost negligible. Money...
