My Dream Speech for Mitt Romney

Tuesday, Aug 28, 2012

…ur coinage and our bills, not to mention in our hearts and in our minds, and emblazoned on the walls of Congress. They are: Liberty, In God We Trust, and E Pluribus Unum (From Many, One) The Democratic Party seeks to replace liberty with equality. Not equality before the law — that we all believe in. Not the equality of human worth — all Americans believe that all men are created equal. But the Democratic Party and this president…

There Are Two Irreconcilable Americas

Tuesday, Oct 14, 2008

…ot only for the same job but for “comparable” jobs (as if that is objectively ascertainable). The right values equality in opportunity and strongly believes that all people are created equal, but the right values liberty, a man-woman based family and other values above equality. The left wants a world — and therefore an America — devoid of nuclear weapons. The right wants America to have the best nuclear weapons. The…

November Is a Plebiscite On the American Revolution

Tuesday, May 1, 2012

…ienable rights if no rights derive from God. And “E Pluribus Unum” means the assumption of an American identity by all citizens regardless of their racial, ethnic or national background. The left seeks to replace Liberty with Equality. Material inequality is the great evil, and if individual liberty needs to be sacrificed to attain equality, so be it. Creator-based values are to be replaced by government-based values….

Forcing Girls to Cheer for Girls

…moral vacuum it leaves, and laws compelling good behavior result. Unlike the nearly contemporaneous French Revolution, which affirmed “egalite” along with “liberte,” the American Revolution never held equality equal to liberty. The Founders knew that you cannot have both, and so, the further left one moves, i.e., the more like France and Western Europe we become, the more coerced equality and the less personal liberty we…

What does ‘Judeo-Christian’ mean?

Tuesday, Mar 30, 2004

…bably studied Hebrew, the language of the Old Testament, at least as much as Greek, the language of the New. Yale, founded in 1701, adopted a Hebrew insignia, and Hebrew was compulsory at Harvard until 1787. The words on the Liberty Bell, “Proclaim Liberty throughout all the land . . . ,” are from the Torah. Vast numbers of Americans took Hebrew names — like Benjamin Franklin and Cotton Mather (kattan in Hebrew means…

The Scariest Reason Trump Won

Tuesday, May 10, 2016

…decent country. The left opposes God-based religions, particularly Judeo-Christian religions. Secularism, as much as egalitarianism, is as at the core of leftism. The American Revolution, unlike the French Revolution, placed liberty above equality. For the left, equality is more important than all else. That’s why so many American and European leftists have celebrated left-wing regimes, from Stalin to Mao to Guevara to Castro to Chavez, no…

The second American civil war: what it’s about

Tuesday, Oct 14, 2003

…tes. The Left believes that the Boy Scouts as currently constituted pose a moral threat to society. The Right believes the Boy Scouts continue to be one of the greatest moral institutions in the country. The Left believes in equality more than in liberty. The Right believes more in liberty. For example, the Left believes that for the equality’s sake, men’s clubs must accept women. The Right believes that for liberty’s sake,…

America founded to be free, not secular

Wednesday, Jan 3, 2007

…type, etc. This country was founded overwhelmingly by men and women steeped in the Bible. Their moral values emanated from the Bible, and they regarded liberty as possible only if understood as given by God. That is why the Liberty Bell’s inscription is from the Old Testament, and why Thomas Jefferson, the allegedly non-religious deist, wrote (as carved into the Jefferson Memorial): “God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the…

Socialism kills

Tuesday, Sep 2, 2003

…boards of its largest corporations must be half female. The California left, the Democratic Party, just passed a law that no employer may fire a male employee who wears women’s clothing at work. Because the Left holds liberty (except sexual liberty) in lower esteem, Europe has raised a generation that does not value liberty nearly as much Americans do (though we’re getting there). Third, socialism teaches you to avoid taking care of…

The Obama Inaugural Address

Tuesday, Jan 29, 2013

…eft’s proudest accomplishments — would address what may well be the single most important development in the last half-century of American life. –“We learned that no union founded on the principles of liberty and equality could survive half-slave and half-free. We made ourselves anew, and vowed to move forward together.” If there is one word that most excites progressives, it is “new.” (“Old”…
