Living in the United Socialist States of Amerika

One side wants all mention and practice of God gone, the other prays.  One side believes in American traditions like helping your neighbor, the other side believes in helping themselves and letting the Federal government help their neighbor instead.  One side believes lying to achieve one’s objective is acceptable as long as it is for […]

A Declaration of Rights & Responsibilities

Declaration of Rights & Responsibilities As the American Declaration of Independence clearly states…when in the course of human events it becomes necessary for people to band together and collectively declare their rights and responsibilities to which the laws of nature and nature’s God entitle and bind them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires […]

Movie: I Am Number Four – Entertainment or Propaganda?
