    The question “Who started the Democrat Party?” is not an easy one to answer. We know Democrats say Thomas Jefferson because he was a member of the Democratic-Republican Party. Aside from the chronological problems with this claim – Jefferson was long out of active politics before the first actual Democrat president Andrew Jackson was elected- Jefferson stood for things that are exactly opposite of what Democrats have ever stood for. He disliked omnipotent central government and loathed an overly powerful judiciary. Clearly, the Democrat Party’s claims to have its roots in the legacy of the great Thomas Jefferson are preposterous....

    G. Paul Burnett/The New York Times “I don’t want to preside over an institution that puts on exhibitions that have limited popular appeal.” Louise Mirrer THE "puppet" scuttlebutt - that her latest career move has strings attached and that she's not the person pulling them - rankles Louise Mirrer. Hence that furrow in the brow of the otherwise self-possessed president of the New-York Historical Society, who is inaugurating her tenure with a $5 million blockbuster exhibition on Alexander Hamilton, a founding father hitherto best known for decorating $10 bills with his somber visage. According to some historians, Ms. Mirrer...

    Fiedor Report On the News #303 ^ | 2-23-03 | Doug Fiedor
    What do you think the Founding Fathers would say about the oppressive legislation, rules, regulations, and executive orders emanating from today's federal government? Luckily, in The Federalist Papers No. 78, Alexander Hamilton gives us a pretty good idea: "There is no position which depends on clearer principles than that every act of a delegated authority, contrary to the tenor of the commission under which it is exercised, is void. No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid. To deny this would be to affirm that the deputy is greater than his principal; that the servant is above...

    Over the years, I have written a lot on the subject of "Boxing Liberty." Heck, I'm on my "soap box" nearly every week and often write about the ballot box and the cartridge box. Few, however, including me, ever write about our responsibility in the jury box. Let's forget, for a moment, what today's over-zealous and omnipotent judges, prosecutors and lawyers tell us. Instead, let's take a look back at how our law was intended to be administrated and what the roll the citizen was intended to play. In The Federalist Papers No. 62, James Madison admonishes: "It will be...
