Rule of Law: 8 Methods to Evaluate Violations of the Rule of Law

This lesson is an excerpt from: Lawless America: What Happened to the Rule of Law by Bruce Frohnen. The purpose of the Rule of Law is to provide settled, enforceable rules, known by the people, which allow them to plan their lives according to those rules. 8 Points of violation of the Rule of Law Lon. J. […]

Never too early – or late – when it’s time to learn

Why spend time learning, when action is what is required? Such thinking is not new to mankind. I’ve often promoted the need for those in the Tea Party Movement to learn good apologetics – the ability to defend the existence of God as a part of rational understanding of all things created – simply because […]

Rule of Law: Compliance produces a Republic.

Lawlessness to the Creator’s Rule of Law will never produce a Republic. This is third in a continuing series explaining the principles of the Rule of Law. A lawless game is not the equal of the real game.   In continuing our Monopoly game explanation of the Rule of Law, it was noted in The […]

The Rule of Law: No Neutral Ground

This is the second article in a series explaining the Rule of Law. In the first article, we established the principle that we are either in compliance with the Rule of Law or we are in a lawless state. [The Rule of Law: Compliance or Lawlessness] Now we will examine the principle that there is […]

The Rule of Law: Compliance or Lawlessness

To appreciate the principles of governing according to The Rule of Law we must accept that in every point we are either in compliance, or in a state of lawlessness. There is no neutral ground. Monopoly Game example: We all know the card: “Go to jail. Go Directly to Jail. Do not pass GO! Do […]

Appeal to Brazos County State Representatives

“Throughout most of human history, the rules by which life was governed were usually determined by force and fraud: he who had the power—whether military strength or political dominance—made the rules. The command of the absolute monarch or tyrannical despot was the rule and had the coercive force of the law. Rulers made up false […]

The Founder’s Solution: One Message of Objective Truth and Morality

When Creator endowed Liberty is replaced with Man-Endowed Privilege then Human Nature will reward itself. That we mistakenly call this Justice, is why it’s no longer safe to visit the local University McDonald’s in the wee morning hours or sit patiently waiting for an AMTRAK Train in San Antonio. The benefits of ONE moral message […]

Connecting The Dots: Establishment Republicans and the Chamber of Commerce

The need for Leadership rather than the inevitablility of outcome from mere Facilitators. Apart from We the People, our community is suffering from an appalling lack of leadership from elected officials, directors of public services, and the local news media. Instead, we are overwhelmed with facilitators of inevitability. The absence of common sense – the republican […]

2014 Texas Primary Results

Oligarchy Texas Style Or: “Can you step that product one more time, so I can get a cut?” The March 3, 2014 Texas Primary will be a date of infamy for those continuing to succor that legendary mythology which has defined Texas Liberty. To even discuss the stuff of legend and mythology in this post-Christian […]

Do You Have What It Takes to be a Little “r” Republican Volunteer?

The Bryan/College Station Tea Party is organized like any other republican organization. Those who accept a position of responsibility are then reciprocated with a voice in setting the agenda of the organization. Republicanism honors a code of responsibility in which a position of responsibility accepted is rewarded with further responsibility. Why the B/CS Tea Party […]

What Is Little “r” Republicanism?

The Truth of Democracy Years of indoctrination have established in our minds that democracy  is the foundation to liberty. This is a pernicious falsehood. It was noted by Plato that democracy — the tyranny of the 51% — is the most unstable form of organized civilization. All democracies end in tyranny or anarchy. This happens […]

Statement: HR 325 No Budget, No Pay Act

The B/CS Tea Party rejects the HR 325 No Budget, No Pay Act as being unconstitutional (27th Amendment), and yet another example of trying to use human nature to fight human nature, rather than doing so with right constitutional principles.

The Danger of Radical Equality and Its Cure

[This op-ed was first posted at Ramparts360.com which is the premier political/cultural blog for Texas.]   We are a nation that prides itself for acknowledging the principle of equality, but as wisdom instructs: Pride is the first step to self-created destruction. The frailty of human willpower ensures that the ability to practice a virtue eventually devolves […]

Precedent Is Not Necessarily Principle

In Dred Scott v Sandford (1857), Chief Justice Roger B. Taney pointed to the commerce clause, along with the so-called Fugitive Slave Clause (Article IV, Section 2, Clasue 3), as evidence that slaves were not citizens but were to be considered property according to the Constitution. The Heritage Guide to the Constitution, p. 151. In […]
