Leashing the Human Character

Recently, I was taking a walk with a friend of mine, who upon noticing various pieces of trash - empty beer cans, food wrappers, etc. - commented that “humans are pigs”.

This got me to thinking. It occurred to me that humans are perhaps more like dogs than pigs, and values are their leashes.

What is Homeland Security?

Submitted by Freedomman on Wed, 08/14/2013 - 20:34

By Brent Johnson

It has become accepted as a necessary function of our government: Homeland Security. The massive Department of Homeland Security, created by an Act of Congress, has already attracted countless lobbyists, all vying for billions of dollars in DHS appropriations. (By the way, did you know that Homeland Security was supposed to cost nothing; it was supposed to simply be a reorganization of already existing budgets? So much for government promises).

Have you ever seen one of those television commercials for the Army? "Be all that you can be." "An army of one." Or those really interesting, effect-laden ads for the Marines? "Maybe you could be one of us. The few, the proud the Marines."

The American revolution was a remarkable event. Against the might of the British monarchy and her minions of well-trained troops, a small, rag-tag, untrained corps of citizen-soldiers wrested control of the colonies from subjection to the king. Such an amazing accomplishment required amazing men; men of character and principle, men of morals and values; men who could distinguish between right and wrong, without an order from the king.

Common law liens provide a lawful method of securing the lienor's interest in his own property. When used properly, these powerful instruments will protect your interest in real and other tangible property.

Buying a Society

One of the most subtle and insidious methods used by governments such as the United States to socially program the population involves offering money in exchange for participation or cooperation. We see it all the time.

Beyond Their Purview

The united States of America was established as a vision for people everywhere, to provide much more for each individual than any other country ever had. It was to be a place where individuals are recognized to have natural rights… rights that come not from any government, but rather from a more powerful source.

Homosexual Marriage

Submitted by Freedomman on Wed, 06/13/2012 - 19:55

By Brent Johnson

America was founded on scriptural law. Scripture defines marriage as a covenant between a man, a woman, and God. It is this definition that helps define the parameters of this debate. If you believe in the Word, then you must accept the scriptural definition of marriage, which is the joining of a man and a woman.

Commentary: Should we reinstitute a compulsory draft?

Submitted by Freedomman on Thu, 05/17/2012 - 01:39

By Brent Johnson

The biggest problem I have with a compulsory draft is that it cannot ever be considered constitutional, regardless of the so-called reasons for having one.

When a citizen enlists in any of the Armed Services, he or she must take a sworn oath to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution from all enemies, domestic or foreign, and to obey the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). Upon taking this oath, the enlistee becomes G.I., which means government issue.

You see, members of the military must voluntarily waive their God-given rights in order to be a part of any branch of the Armed Services; and therein lies my problem with a draft.
