The Constitution, Part VII

Liberty is not another word for freedom or license. It is the just and noble balance of rights and responsibility. And where the Spirit of the Lord is, there will be found undying liberty.

The 5th Amendment directs conduct in court. Along with the 6th Amendment it is a harder one to memorize due to its length. However, as with any other challenge, it can still be done by breaking the whole into its parts (notice the punctuation!), pondering each part until it is understood, and then putting them […]

The Constitution, Part VI

Distant relatives such as these exchanged their home in Europe for the security and freedom outlined in the Fourth Amendment.

AMENDMENT 4 The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be […]

It’s Not the Economy

The economy is a surface issue. It is only one indicator of God’s blessing (or lack of blessing) on a country. The root issue for God’s people is a broken and contrite spirit. Have we humbled ourselves the way in which He really wanted? Deeper than praying for God’s blessing is seeking for God’s best, […]

Every citizen of the United States will identify which side they are on with their vote (or lack of a vote) within the next three and a half days.

Who do I vote for in West Virginia?

NRA presidential endorsement 2012

Some trustworthy groups have done a lot of work to find out the views and values of the many candidates for offices up for election in 2012.

The 2nd Debate

After Romney’s landslide victory in the first debate, the big Obama come-back that the liberals were hoping for just didn’t happen. Conservative analysts had much to criticize about the event: a liberal-leaning moderator, questions catering to Obama, and more time given to Obama, yet his debatable “win” was by a very close margin – “not […]
