In a previous essay I reviewed and recommended that everyone watch “Politics Easy as P.I.E.” The fundamental truth demonstrated in that series of videos is that American prosperity is the direct result of the freedoms we have enjoyed as a society. The equation is simple: No freedom, no prosperity.
Our freedoms are guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. But how solid are those guarantees? They are only as solid as we the people – each generation – make it. And unfortunately, those freedoms are easily lost, as evidenced by the recent ObamaCare fiasco.

Is that really the case? To answer that question I recommend that everyone become familiar with the original intent of the Constitution and its current interpretation by viewing “Constitutional Literacy” with Michael Farris (Links provided at the end of this review). Read more…
A judge in Pennsylvania threw out video evidence, dismissed eyewitness testimony, dismissed the case and lectured the victim of an unprovoked assault. Why?

By the way, a friend of the the victim marching by his side was dressed as a zombie of the Pope. He was not attacked.
This is why states like Oklahoma feel it necessary to pass laws making it illegal for judges to use any foreign law to reach their verdicts.
The following YouTube audio of the proceedings spends the first two minutes providing background, the proceeds with a recording of judge’s words: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bf11F3y9LOE
I fear and pray for my children and grandchildren. My family escaped Communism to seek freedom. What is happening before my eyes is the death of America the Beautiful, the land of the free; and the birth of the Democratic Republic of America, just another third world or Communist dictatorship.
This is very scary. We have a Supreme Court that has been appointed for life. They are not accountable to anyone and seem to have little regard for the Constitution – other than paying lip service. We even have a Supreme Court Justice publicly stating that our constitution is outmoded and ineffective – the implication is obvious. Read more…
