I am a homeschooler who found out early that if you aren’t active in defending your rights, people will be more than happy to remove them from you.

I love Reagan, Rush, Free Republic and America as it was defined by our Founders in the Constitution and Declaration.

I believe in American Exceptionalism, and that Jesus is America’s King, whether people wish to recognize that or not. And that the truth will make us free.

I believe that the most important line in the Pledge of Allegiance is "Under God", because if a state does not recognize that loyalties to it come AFTER loyalties to a concept of morality and goodness, then it is a tyranny.

I believe that the first thing tyrants seek to do is remove power from the individual, in the form of stifling their speech and removing their self-defense. I believe that political correctness is a sneak attack on the First Amendment.

I believe God is love - not mushy romantic best buddies type of love, but a powerful, sacrificing, all encompassing muscular love that changes the world.


The Basis of American Philosophy

Everything about American Law is Based on this argument. If you don't understand it, you don't understand what this country was intended to be, and what makes it different from nations that practice tyranny over their citizens.


The Declaration of Independence says: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

This is a very important concept. The signatories of the Declaration were saying that certain rights are built directly into each human being. You don’t actually have to believe in God to understand the concept. You enter this world with unalienable rights that are not granted by the government… and cannot be withdrawn at the pleasure of government. No one can pass legislation to take these rights away. Even if every single one of your fellow citizens votes to strip one of your unalienable rights from you, the government cannot do so, without sacrificing its legitimacy.

From this concept we draw one of humanity’s greatest moral and intellectual achievements: laws that restrain the government. That’s where the Constitution comes in, particularly the Bill of Rights. In essence, it’s a list of things the government cannot do, even with the overwhelming democratic support of its citizens. The Constitution itself can be amended, but that’s very difficult to do, and no such amendment would be legitimate if it were an offense against the very narrow set of rights endowed by our Creator. This is a key component in the transition from away from raw “democracy” and mob rule, toward the vastly superior governance of a lawful republic.


Five Fundamental Statements

1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.

2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.


Some Quotes from the Brilliant Mind of Reagan:

"Evil is powerless if the good are unafraid"

" The most dangerous myth is the demagoguery that business can be made to pay a larger share, thus relieving the individual. Politicians preaching this are either deliberately dishonest, or economically illiterate, and either one should scare us... Only people pay taxes, and people pay as consumers every tax that is assessed against a business."

" We cannot play innocents abroad in a world that is not innocent"

"Peace is not the absense of conflict; it is the ability to manage conflict by peaceful means"

" Of the four wars of my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong"

"How do you tell a communist? He reads Lenin and Marx. And how do you tell an anti-communist? Someone who understands Lenin and Marx."

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction; it's not something we pass along in our bloodstream. It must be fought-for, protected, and passed-along for them to do the same"

"Entrepeneurs and small businesses are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States" "

"They say the world has become too complex for simple answers... they are wrong"

"The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government, and I'm here to help"

"Recession is when your neighbor loses his job; a depression is when you lose yours"
