    When 56 men signed the Declaration of Independence they declared their ďreliance upon divine ProvidenceĒ and pledged to each their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor. Today, 125 scholars and writers have pledged to support Donald Trump for president. While we too rely upon divine Providence today, it is because of those risks taken by those men that we live in a republic where declaring support for a candidate does not imperil life or limb. But fortunes and sacred honor are always at stake, rarely more so than in a contentious election that will decide the future of this republic. We...

Obama appeared to equate the two positions ó pointing out that he wanted Kaepernick to understand why people might be angry at his protest, while also urging military families to listen to the NFL players who joined Kaepernick by drawing attention to the Black Lives Matter movement.

The state has created such a Wild West atmosphere that gun owners are signing up for coaching and legal help so they can be prepared when they shoot someone. ÖAn emerging industry that offers instructions to members for responding to police after they shoot someone, liability coverage and legal advice fuels a shoot-first mentality.

When you focus on something,...

    A recent poll discovered that 44 percent of the population in this country no longer take pride in being Americans. 44 percent of the people living in the nation with more opportunity, more security, the land of overnight millionaires, the place where even the biggest dreams can come true, have decided that America is not still the greatest nation the world has ever known, but a place to be ashamed of, guilty of nation building, fighting ignoble wars and suppressing minorities. What has led us to this sorry state of affairs? How can people who have been blessed just to...
