In a recent article, Bill Ferguson, a local columnist for The Telegraph (Macon, Georgia), attempts to give readers a strong political soporific, as to deaden their need to remain informed and vigilant when it comes to guarding their Second Amendment rights from usurpation by a UN treaty.(1) But before that, he takes a swipe at conservatives, while intimating that he himself is a moderate Republican and was even a Romney supporter in the last election.(2) Once again, we have a liberal writer masquerading as a reluctant Republican or centrist, as to make his snake oil elixir a bit mo

Let us now discuss the more arcane, extreme and revolutionary, right-wing philosophy, namely anarchism. You may ask when and where in recent history have anarchist revolutionaries been successful?  For the answer, we must travel back in time to Spain during the Spanish Civil War (1936-39). It was in Barcelona and surrounding districts that idealist anarchism flourished in the early period of the war as anarchists defended the radical Republican government that the communists also supported against the military insurrection of General Francisco Franco.

"One death is a tragedy; a million is a statistic," said Joseph Stalin (1879-1953). It is estimated that between 20 to 40 million people, mostly Russians, were killed by Stalin during his dictatorship (1924-1953). Stalin, the Soviet dictator, not only exterminated purported "enemies of the peoples" but also liquidated almost the entire slate of communist Bolshevik leaders, who had been his and Lenin's friends during the Russian Revolution of 1917.

This outstanding book by a black American journalist for The Washington Post recounts the emotional and spiritual awakening of the author upon his fateful visit to his ancestral home, Africa.

He thanks Providence for the fact his ancestors were brought to America, even as slaves, so that he could be born a free man in America. One of the most poignant scenes in the book sums it up.

The Center for International Policy has a very curious speaker in Wayne Smith, Chief of Mission at the U.S. Interests Section in Havana, Cuba appointed by Jimmy Carter. He proudly describes himself as a close friend of Fidel Castro.

Less than two months into his presidency, on March 15, 1977, Carter called for normalization of relations with Castro's Cuba. He opened the US Interests Section in Havana and put Wayne Smith in charge. (This according to a declassified White House document as stated in the U.S. Cuba Policy Report, Vol. 9, No. 5, pg. 5.)

America's Founding Fathers, our prescient, venerable predecessors, established for us a Constitutional Republic, limited government by the rule of law and with the consent of the governed. They also said, in the voice of Benjamin Franklin (1787), that our newly founded nation was and should remain a Republic, if we can keep it, if we can preserve it as a cherished legacy for posterity.
