American Principals

Why are politicians out of favor in America?  It is because they do not stand for principals, or the principals that they represent are contrary to those on which this country was founded.  This country was founded on true principals.  It was founded on the experience of societies throughout the ages.  These principals centered on three basic rights from which all others emanate.  These include the rights of Life, Liberty, and Property.  Society can only pursue happiness when these rights are fully protected.  The basic concept of these principals is that the individual is the most important unit in society, followed by the family, then your neighborhood, and so on to the nation.  These principals are outlined in the Constitution and Bill of Rights.  These documents create specific borders for the federal government to ensure that it cannot encroach on individual’s rights.  There is a reason that much of the language of these documents is negative.  They are a protection for all, and therefore specify what cannot be done by the government.  This is on purpose.   It is to put forth the idea that government is to be controlled, and therefore does not have rights or responsibilities to provide, except within carefully defined parameters.

Third Party Rising?

I came across this today while searching other conservative blogs, and must say I am very impressed!  I am not decided on the best course of action for reform our nation, whether it be through the Republican party or a new party.  The benefit of the using the Republicans is that they, as Glenn Beck has stated, already have the framework in place.  However, this existing framework has a stigma attached to it that many find distasteful.  It would be best that the reformist movement be open to left and right wing individuals that love the constitution and our country.  All this said I would like to share this new ”American Federalist Party” platform being developed online.  It is very interesting and in many ways a perfect example of the concerns of We the People.

2nd Amendment

“A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained in arms, is the best most natural defense of a free country.” - James Madison

For the doubters of the individual’s right to bear arms:  It is clear when reading the extended writings of the founders that they fully intended for the body of the people to be armed in defence of individual liberty. Continue reading

Why I’m Not a Republican

First, I will say that both my Mother and Father are republican.  Most of the people I grew up with declare proudly that they are Republican.  Therefore, I grew up partial to that point of view.  Mostly because that was just the “right” way to think, pardon the overused pun.  Now Republican ideals always made sense to me.  They made sense in the same way that my religious ideals did.  The concepts are not always easy, but in the end, they are the most beneficial to the individual and society.  As I grew older, I have come to find that Republicans are just politicians with all the faults that come with the title.

March on Washington – Tea Party Time

September 12th, 2001

I remember this day for one distinct reason.  After the previous traumatising day, looking at the brutal attack waged against my fellow Americans, I left my home and began my morning bike rideto school.  I was concerned for what lay ahead.  Was anywhere safe?  How many attacks would happen today, I thought?  As I rode down the streets, I noticed something that made me feel a little more comfortable.  Before me, in front of each home stood the flag.  Old glory hung, half staff, on every pole, but in front of each house it was displayed with pride and solidarity.  It was an odd feeling seeing that every American felt the same way.  Patriotism was displayed in every window.  There was no bickering between partisans.  This fact had been displayed boldly by the singing of God Bless America the day before in congress.  America was changed.  We were fearful, but determined.  There was only one collective thought, we will triumph!
