    PETERBOROUGH – Cindy Ginn, possibly the most persistent Appleseeder of all time, recently earned her rifleman patch. Overcoming equipment and ammunition problems that have plagued her for no less than nine Appleseed events, Ginn bounced up an amazing 17 points to score 219 on the last Army Qualification Target of the event. When the AQT was scored, the crowd went wild. There were hugs and tears in abundance. The emotion was palpable. The Appleseed Project, a charitable organization, holds events all over the country that teach Revolutionary War history and rifle marksmanship. Participants who score 210 or better earn a...

    (Feb. 24, 2011) — As the battle for states’ rights heat up across the country, Montana and Arizona have leaped out into the lead by introducing the first broad-based State Nullification Reaffirmation Act designed to return the power to the people and their states and rein in federal government abuses of misinterpreted power. The Model Legislation was researched and created by the Constitutional Justice Division of Wyoming-based United States Patriots Union. This model legislation aims to reaffirm and reassert broad-based sovereign state’s rights under the Ninth and Tenth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution by providing both the constitutional grounds and...
  • Incremental Steps to Dictatorship

    History shows us that as free nations become complacent, they become vulnerable to manipulation. Most dictatorships rise gradually -- a step at a time. Smooth talking politicians make each incremental step seem reasonable, because the masses are blind to the tides of change. The wisdom of Wendell Phillips fades away: "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty." Austria illustrates the power of gradualism. In 1933, it was a free nation. In 1934, its government began to centralize its power and welcome the influence of Nazi sympathizers. By 1938, it had become a Nazi dictatorship . The downward slide began with...

    Several Governors, most notably Gov. Mark Sanford (R-SC) and Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX), have refused stimulus funds, due to the enormous amount of strings attached. Yet due to a provision in the stimulus bill itself, legislatures have the power to override the Governor’s decision, and it appears that at least in South Carolina, that provision may be exercised. In yesterday’s Chicago Tribune, however, Chapman University school of Law professor Ronald Chapman argued that the provision is blatantly unconstitutional and would likely not survive a court challenge, because it may attempt to alter existing state law and state constitutions. Congress may...
  • The root of our problems is the forgotten philosophy of LIBERTY.

    What bothers me most about the state of our country today is the fact that the philosophy of Liberty seems to have been lost. All of this political rhetoric from both the left and the right and they are both of them seem to support the power of the collective over the individual. Of course the left is much more extreme about it, but none the less neither of them stand for individual rights. It sickens me when I hear politicians and newscasters on television and radios refer to the United States as a Democracy. It is a constitutional Republic,...

    Oklahoma’s Golden Opportunity With gasoline prices exceeding $3 per gallon throughout much of the United States, motorists are feeling a considerable amount of pain at the pump. Many elected officials are feeling pressure from their constituents to “do something”... “Doing something” in this case usually means railing against the evils of “Big Oil.” Of course, worldwide supply and demand are the primary determinants of gasoline prices, but that does not stop the wild allegations — often centered on accusations of “price gouging” — against oil companies every time they raise prices or announce a quarterly profit. Accusations of gouging then...

    The jackass brays back: Rangel wrangles with National Youth Slavery by Greg Swann Yesterday I held a colloquy with a braying jackass over New York Democratic Representative Charles Rangel's plan to institute universal military conscription. Today Rangel is back, in an op-ed in the New York Times, insisting that he really means it, that he wasn't just braying at random on CNN. Fine with me. I'm clipping and snipping, so see the original to wrangle this jackass unedited. I believe that if we are going to send our children to war, the governing principle must be that of shared...

    Lott and liberty... by Greg Swann Admonishing me, seemingly, for my admiration of Trent Lott's obstinacy, John Sabotta asks: Why should anyone refrain from calling for him to step down just because he is bravely defending a despicable principle?It remains to be seen whether Lott is defending any sort of principle. I'm inclined to think he is not. Never has. Never will. But that doesn't seem very important to me. What is important as a matter of politics is this: Is what Lott is doing of value to those who seek liberty, irrespective of his conscious intent? And: Are...

    November 13, 2002 at 9:52 a.m. ET Should U.S. House members vote on sweeping legislation before they even read it? The U.S. House is scheduled to vote on a revised version of legislation creating the Department of Homeland Security by 2:00 p.m. ET today.  The time now is just before 10:00 a.m ET and the revised text is not available to read and we've been told the revised text might not be available for awhile. The only information available is a Congressional Quarterly summary. So House members will have to rely only on a summary to decide their vote on...

    Saturday, April 20, 2002 'Freedom' banned in school? Posted: April 20, 20021:00 a.m. Eastern By Joel Miller © 2002 A music teacher in an inner-city Michigan grade school is getting an earful from the higher-ups about the type of songs she can use in her classroom. According to the April 17 issue of the Rutherford Institute's Insider, the teacher isn't in trouble for having the children sing lines from the latest Snoop Dogg rap album or even getting the tykes to trot out with something as strictly verboten as "Jesus Loves Me." No, said the Insider, "school administrators informed her...
