Public-Private Bike Race Foes Can Show Our Strength: OPPOSE the State Acquisition of the VA Sports Hall of Fame!

I got several positive comments about my expose of the taxpayer money spent on the disruptive world bike race last September.  One said something to the effect of:  How do we stop them next time? Well, let’s start with this:  Senator L. Louise Lucas has introduced this bill: SB 28 Virginia Sports Hall of Fame; […]

What About a Youthful Offender Statute similar to Alabama and/or Florida?

I am interested in overcriminalization.  I think legislatures tend to not trust judges with sentencing decisions.  What should be done is more judicial discretion and then make sure solid discreet men and women should be appointed to the bench as a priority. In my efforts to try to find opportunities to give chances to young […]

Democrats Have Changed; GOP Still Needs to Adjust

The Democrat Party has never been fond of free market capitalism, constitutional republicanism, federalism, or individual rights; but over the last decade, the Democrats have gone from a Progressive-European model of lite Democratic-Socialism, to a party of full blown totalitarian Statists. There is nothing American, moderate, independent, or virtuous left to the Democrat Party. Ever […]

GOP: Abandon Individualism At Your Peril

The Republican Party has always suffered from a fragmentary view of individualism. Evangelical Christians and Catholics, accustomed to higher authorities and collectives, have struggled with the individualist and materialist natures of liberty and capitalism, and Evangelical Christians and Catholics make up a significant portion of the Republican population. Now, before going all crouching tiger hidden […]

Evidence – Free Assertions

By Bob Shannon – Central Garage In the “Cost of Country Living”, headline article in the April 15th edition quite a few comments were made by County officials and others that have no basis in facts,  and this must be met with a measure of challenge.

Self-Reliance: The Problem We Face and Refuse to Face

“Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor Liberty to purchase power.” Benjamin Franklin I endeavor to discover the path back to virtue, but virtue, like liberty, is hard to hold. Anger makes us intemperate. Frustration makes us impatient. Hopelessness makes us reckless. Yet, reality encourages these emotions and their consequents. The ebb and flow of […]

How We Lost our Liberty: What we Gave Up. What we Gave Away.

The state of nature has a law of nature to govern it, which obliges every one: and reason, which is that law, teaches all mankind, who will but consult it, that being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty, or possessions… Locke, John.

Imagine A Third World War: But Not How You’d Imagine It

Imagine, the rise of a religious movement independent from any single national government or collection of governments, raising armies and waging wars in an attempt to conquer and defeat all other societies, philosophies, and cultures. That’s not hard to imagine, because that is precisely what we are witnessing across the globe today. Furthermore, imagine that […]

SCOTLAND can use STERLING without the UK’s PERMISSION – and MIGHT HAVE a STRONGER BANKING SYSTEM WITHOUT a CENTRAL BANK! (RON PAUL call your OFFICE!)

WHAT HE SAID was APPALLING, OUTRAGEOUS and OFFENSIVE

No I am not talking about Donald Sterling – although what Sterling (not a Southerner by the way – born in Chicago, Illinois!) said is all of that:  Appalling, outrageous and offensive.
