THE COMING CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS

December 6, 2010

            Months ago I pointed out that Obama was abusing the power of the President to issue Executive Orders.

A FRIGHTENING FUTURE

October 1, 2010

           With the 2010 midterm election almost on us it is important that we reflect on what is really at stake. If the so-called Progressives remain in control of Congress, Obama will be able to continue with his socialist agenda to “fundamentally change America.” By 2012 our country and our free…

An Open Letter

August 27, 2010

An Open Letter to My Fellow Americans:

ATTACKING OUR RIGHT TO VOTE

August 5, 2010

          The right to vote is perhaps the most cherished and important of the rights guaranteed to Americans by the Constitution.

REFLECTIONS ON THE HEALTH CARE DEBATE

July 22, 2010

          Almost one year ago I started by blog on Constitutional law by posting an article I had written on HR 3200 that was the original version of the health care bill pending in Congress.

HERE THEY COME AGAIN!

April 20, 2010

Many of us have predicted that since the Obama Administration and its lackeys in Congress are emboldened by the fact that they appear to have successfully ignored the will of the American people and passed the so-called “health care reform bill” that they would come at us with more unconstitutional …

THE NIGHTMARE OF THE HEALTH CARE BILL

March 31, 2010

          When I first read the original health care reform bill, HR 3200, it was akin to trying to cross a minefield in combat. The bill was a mishmash of confusing sections that established a massive Federal government takeover of the health care system in the United States. However, reading the v…

It is the beginning of the winter of 1777 and 12,000 ragged and ill equipped men, the remnants of what appeared to be a thoroughly defeated Continental army, followed General George Washington into a winter encampment in a place called Valley Forge. They had little in the way of food or warm clothin…

February 23, 2010

After much anticipation, at least by the so-called mainstream media, the White House has released the new and improved version of Obamacare. Since I have already had to read two previous versions of these monstrosities in the House and two more in the Senate, I call this version Obamacare 5.0 and it…

THE PELOSI VERSION OF HR 3200

November 2, 2009

When I first read HR 3200 in its entirety several months ago I was appalled at the blatant disregard in the bill of the basic tenets of our Constitutional form of government. However, I underestimated what is actually being done to us. The newest version of HR 3200 that has been labeled the Pelosi B…
