  • drrobertowens wrote a new blog post: Would We the People Ratify the Constitution Today?   2 days, 21 hours ago · View

    We the People are the opening words of the preamble to the Constitution.  Many patriots glory in that name, “We the People” holding it aloft as a banner against the encroachments of an ever expanding central government.   In the minds of many it is connected somehow to Lincoln’s famous description of America’s government, “Of the [...]

    ThumbnailI dearly wish that our political celebrities would combine their observations with insight and season them liberally with understanding.   I also wish that they would learn the lessons of history so they would be less inclined to repeat past mistakes. Maybe we should think about our communication style with these people.   Could we pattern our approach with the [...]

    Our revolution changed the world.  Our Declaration of Independence proclaims self-evident truths.  That all men are created equal, they’re endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights, among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  These words shook a world held in the vise-grip of hereditary privilege inspiring people around the globe.  Our Constitution [...]

    The problem with anarchy is that it must become organized to accomplish anything.  Then like militant apathy it declares war against the machine never realizing that it is merely another cog in the wheel that grinds itself to dust. The Law of Liberty defines that space where an individual is secure and free to live [...]

    Tags: debt, FED, jobs, economics, finance, deficit, dollars Thank you for coming to this meeting on such short notice. We are especially grateful to Fu Ling U from China and Schneider Von Dipstick from Germany for their long journey here. First, it is difficult to wrap our minds around the hugeness of the US dollar [...]

    Even for someone who learned at their grandmother’s knee that what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is negotiable the knowledge that some things are mine and some things aren’t came early.  The whole idea of freedom rests upon the idea that within the wider world which is society there is a smaller circle that [...]

If a large portion of its mixture can make gasoline and diesel fuel, it is called “light.” If it is free of contaminants like sulfur, it [...]

  • drrobertowens wrote a new blog post: Why We Need Capitalists   2 months ago · View

    At one time in America most people were financially independent.  I don’t mean by this that most people were wealthy.  What I mean is that they worked for themselves as opposed to working for someone else as a hired laborer.  People were farmers, or craftsmen, trappers, or frontiersmen.  Thomas Jefferson pictured America as a republic [...]

    Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution requires that before presidents can assume their duties they must take the oath of office.   Every president from George Washington to Barack Obama has placed their hand on a Bible and sworn,” I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of [...]

    Paths with no obstacles usually lead nowhere. Among those who hallow the Constitution you will find no more loyal devotee to this document that helped continue the limited government established under the Article of Confederation.  There is no one who believes more passionately than the author of this article that the Constitution provided the space [...]

  • ThumbnailTags: Obama, retirement, 401K, IRA, RRA, QE, inflation, SOTU Our President, in his State of the Union speech, announced that he will propose a new retirement savings plan to his Treasury Secretary.  What did he mean by that statement?  If past is prologue, this is what he wants to do.  US citizens would invest in a [...]

  • drrobertowens wrote a new blog post: Which Words Work   2 months, 3 weeks ago · View

    What words mean is important.  The ability to speak, to transfer complex and symbolic knowledge from one person to another is one of the hallmarks of humanity.  When words lose their meaning communication loses its ability to transmit thoughts.  Obviously words can change their meanings over time.  One example is the word prevent.  This word [...]

    God makes all of us to be round pegs in round holes.  In a free society if we end up a round peg in a square hole…..that’s on us. There is no feeling worse than believing we have squandered our talents, wasted our life, and made no difference in our short time upon the world [...]

    From each according to their ability to each according to their need was the hollow promise of the Soviet Union.  It was long known to be merely the cover for a ruthless Communist Party that pretended to build a worker’s paradise while in fact enslaving a nation for its own gain. Today this infamous lie [...]

    Just as the pursuit of perfection can often end in the sacrifice of what is good so too the worship of reason often results in the exaltation of mediocrity and the circumscription of reasonable thought and action. Daily the Progressives aggressively push forward against positions which have long been the traditional battle lines of the [...]
