Obama’s latest incursion on the Constitution? Nationalized elections

A few days ago, I wrote about the need for an Article V Convention of States as a way to reign in an out-of-control federal government operating well outside the bounds of its constitutional limitations. Now the Obama administration has…

Article V Convention of States: Election 2016 will not save America

If America has learned anything over the past eight years, it’s just how far we have fallen from the government established by the founding fathers. Or as Abraham Lincoln called it, the government of the people, by the people, and…

Hillary’s acceptance speech, Part II

After Hillary’s speech, I wrote this post to talk about Hillary’s flop. This morning, John Hinderaker wrote this post. While I didn’t watch the speech, I read the transcript. John apparently tried watching it and found it to be unwatchable, which I think is something that’s sweeping the nation. Truthfully, some of the things that […]

Hillary’s acceptance speech a flop

When it comes to presidential acceptance speeches, Hillary Clinton’s speech was as devoid of vision as it was devoid of honesty. When she recognized Bernie Sanders’ supporters, Hillary was in full pander mode. People shouldn’t believe Hillary when she said “You’ve put economic and social justice issues front and center, where they belong. And to […]

July 4, 2016: 240 years as “One Nation, Under God”

If you’re a regular reader or listener of the Strident Conservative, you’ve heard me talking a lot lately about how our constitutional rights are being threatened, inching us closer, I believe, to becoming a post-constitutional America. Even if you disagree…

Real Met Council reform, Part II

There’s no question that people are resistant to change. They appreciate the familiar, which is why it’s difficult, if not impossible, to change things that are broken. Sometimes, though, a dramatic shake-up is exactly what’s needed. The colonists knew that in the 1770s. There are lots of angry activists in the 21st Century who wonder […]

Why is America still considered exceptional?

ex•cep•tion•al (adj): exceptional or unusual; not typical. Is America an exceptional place? Yes. Without discussion. Without question or even reasonable argument. But we aren’t exceptional just because we think we are, and we don’t think we’re exceptional in the same…

Are we a nation gone under?

Do you believe in a political solution to the problems our country faces? Are you convinced that if we just had the right person in the White House we would change back to a moral society? Do you even care about morals? What exactly do we stand for as a nation, as a people, as a society and as a community? I ask these questions because over the past week I have become more and more dejected about the current state of America. We have gone from being the descendants of men who founded the country by allowing God govern their decisions, to a mass of people in 2015 who can’t even place Christ above their iPhone. Before you tune me out because I keep God in the equation, answer me this: do you believe in the right defend yourself and your family? Do you believe in the importance of governing self and family as the first level of governance? Are private property rights essential to you? Do you believe the government was established to ensure your protection to life? Well, these are all Biblical principles, and I’m certain the majority of Americans believe in these truths even if they […]
