You have to wonder…

… can this Republic survive its citizens?

“Our constitution is only fit for a moral and religious people. It is wholly unsuited to the governance of any other kind.” John Adams.

Citizens schooled and committed to Western civilization’s values may here be said to fit the republic.  Those who understand something of the fundamentals of republican government wherein the minority protected from tyranny via the Bill of Rights – and so on.

Those who schooled in the fine points of Western civilization may here be said to be fit citizens of the republic.  

Unfit in regards to maintaining justice, is the majority that regards its power as untrammeled, where minorities are economic classes as well as religious, national or racial minorities.  “Progressive income tax” would be seen for the discrimination it truly is – and a tithe-style tax preferred.

Unfit in general due to its lack of diligence in searching out the issues of the day and the candidates of the day.

Well, I can criticize what I regard to be abominable decisions of this country’s majority, and the lack of protection afforded by observing of the Constitution by the Supreme and inferior courts.

That fact alone gives me hope that not all is lost forever.  We must work to reclaim the civilization we once had, one that without question sustained a Republic, and a great country.


Guns kill people, people don’t kill people????


The logic of the left seems to make our headline meaningful.  But more so is the assertion constantly made that a society bristling with guns is a deadly one.  But quite the opposite is actually true according to a study cited by Ann Coulter in her recent column decrying the poor research (and I decry their lack of journalistic standards as well!) in an article by one of their hacks:

“There is an academic, peer-reviewed, long-term study of the effect of various public policies on public, multiple shootings in all 50 states over a 20-year period performed by renowned economists at the University of Chicago and Yale, William Landes and John Lott. It concluded that the only policy to reduce the incidence of, and casualties from, mass shootings are concealed-carry laws.”  Ann Coulter, Human Events column.

If common sense rules (and I know it doesn’t) – government would be looking for ways to arm citizenry to prevent growth in crime and mass killings.  Rarely does a mass-killer stand up to a simple pistol aimed his way.

“Thou Shalt not covet thy Opposing Party’s Base”

I’m no Ronald Reagan, as anyone who actually knew him would know.  But a new commandment giveth I thee Republican Party – “Covet not thy opponent party’s base.”

Violation of this basic command shall result in the death of the Republican party’s purpose for existence, and thus threatens it’s very existence!  “The wages of sin is death” as it says.  Why?

Chase votes with promises similar to the Democratic party, and you become it.  Why should any bloc of voters go with a poor imitation of the original Democrat promises and pandering?

Thoughts that once you have their base you can transform it, is pretty useless since the party itself would have no character left to bring about that end.  In fact, it will have transformed itself into a wing of the Democratic Party.

Every time the Republican party sets aside principle to win one of these voter blocs of the Democratic Party, it sets aside its soul, it’s very foundation destroyed.

Real Republicans start staying home or start a new party that has principles and vigor born of them.  Or the Party can recognize its need to keep its heart, and the enthusiasm of its own current base.  Better to stand for something, than fail because no one knows “why” you “are”.
