The Conservative Right seems to operate from a general assumption that things keep getting worse because liberals are in power and democrats win all the elections. However, I got curious and did a little research on the topic. I discovered that over the past 20 years, republicans have held 57% of the control of our federal government – 68% if you add in the Supreme Court – that's a 68/32 split in favor of the republicans. Among the union states, the elephant party holds complete control (legislature and governor) of nearly half the states (23) - more than three times as many as the dreaded donkeys (7). It turns out that America is overwhelmingly republican-controlled.Read more
Merry Christmas friends!
Today we celebrate God's gracious providence in the story of the redemption of the human race...
"But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son..." -- Galatians 4:4
"And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord." -- Luke 2:10-11
We pray that today would be a day of great joy for you regardless of your circumstances as we all intently focus on the intended impact of Jesus' birth for our lives. With that in mind we share the following message from R.J. Rushdoony, mentor of Constitution Party founder Howard Phillips.
Your fellow patriots at the
Constitution Party of Georgia

In their effort to make a point, those who discuss law and government and politics for a living often miss the most crucial – the most critical point of all. So, as we celebrate Christmas, this is a good time to take a deep breath and revisit first principles.
We should remember the political significance of Christmas. Now don’t get distracted by arguments that early Christians latched onto a pre-existing pagan holiday to establish the date of Christmas. That may be true, but it is a distraction from what’s truly important. The important thing is the birth of the Savior, Jesus Christ.
The birth of the Savior is the most significant political event in human history. This bears repeating. The birth of Jesus Christ is the most significant political event in the history of the universe.Read more
This week marks a Christian holiday that figures prominently in America’s history – Thanksgiving Day. Celebrations typically include family gatherings and feasting. For some the day is bittersweet due to loved ones who have passed away since the last gathering. The past few weeks my heart has been filled with a familiar song of praise from King David of Israel:
Oh give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the peoples.
Sing to Him, sing praises to Him;
Speak of all His wonders.
Glory in His holy name;
Let the heart of those who seek the Lord be glad.
(1 Chronicles 16:8-10)
Let us follow the example of our nation’s forefathers and focus our Thanksgiving on the One who deserves our thanks and praise – God our Creator who has blessed us with life and liberty.Read more
Prior to and immediately following the vote for Paul Ryan (R-Chamber of Commerce) to be the new Speaker of the House, I went on an Internet/social media rant fest decrying the shortsightedness of conservative House members, particularly members of the Freedom Caucus, who were willing to settle for Ryan, presumably for the sake of getting the Speaker selection over with. See here, here and here.Read more
