But can you imagine how different impeachment proceedings would look if a Senator were appointed by his state legislature?
The powers and authorities of the physical universe show us the origins of human rights. The highest of these, the right to choose, points to the best form of government.
The two sexes have suddenly given rise to a gender explosion — the big bang of the sexual universe. Well, that’s what the gender mongers would have us think. However, everything is the same as always. There aren’t any new genders, only new definitions for old words. Words are the atoms of thought so when definitions get mangled, everything gets confused.…Continue reading The Gender Explosion
On March 4, 2019, we commemorate the inauguration of the most transcendent legal document ever written: the Constitution of the United States of America. The thirteen colonies fought off the English and became sovereign states. Thirteen years after 1776, and thousands of discussions over back fences and in the public square, a new constitution was crafted. The date set for…Continue reading The Birth of Confidence: The New Constitution
Because we believe in secularism, “believers” and “non-believers” are unable to meet on equal terms. The result is that “believers” acquiesce to the political arguments of “non-believers” whose positions seem clearly secular. However, we shall see that secularism is founded on flawed semantics and has not only become unsustainable but the source of religious bigotry. Like Newton’s laws, secularism has…Continue reading The Failed Promise of Secularism
The “United States of America” has become a misnomer. In 1776, “state” and “nation” were synonyms. The USA could have been named “The United Nations of America”, the UNA. After pushing the British off our shores, the colonies became independent nations but they usually called themselves states. The founders’ goal was to create a federation of these nations, a political…Continue reading The Resurgent States of America
When you step onto the soil of backcountry Alaska, you lose your place at the top of the food chain. And you’d better be aware of that because the grizzly bear really likes his position at the top. But then, that’s his natural right, isn’t it? There is also a natural right that gives a cunning person the power to…Continue reading Socialism: The Law of the Jungle
This seems like a strange, maybe even oxymoronic topic. Yet because of the simple nature of a rock, you may soon experience the most profound understanding of human rights you have ever had. So bear with me a moment while I set the stage. This special rock is from my flower bed. For me, it represents the extraordinary yet ordinary…Continue reading Even Rocks Have Rights
A simple way to identify natural human rights is to ask the question, “Can this creature do so and so? If the answer is yes, then the natural right is obvious. If he can do it, he has the agency, the authority, the power, and therefore the right to do it. That’s an easy and powerful way to discover a…Continue reading Human Rights: How to Know Them
Our rights are at the center of almost every thought and activity of our lives. Even when we are not thinking about rights, we are exercising them. They are there, right in the middle of everything we think and do. This is a new thought for most of us. However, that insight leads to understanding many of the joys and…Continue reading Rights: Threads of the Human Fabric
