By Star Parker ~ More unsettling than the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges directing states to recognize same-sex marriage is the reasoning that went into the decision. It would be nice to believe that the men and women who wear black robes and occupy seats on America’s highest court are serious people — […]

By Tom Blumer ~ The left routinely ridicules “slippery slope” arguments from sensible people who recognize that when you establish a dangerous principle or precedent in one area, the fallout will spread to others. The long since sadly vindicated prolife argument made 40 years ago warning that legalizing abortion would lead to wider acceptance of euthanasia […]

By Alan Caruba ~ “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is […]

By Star Parker ~ Because fewer are working for every retiree, our taxation nowhere near covers what the requirements for Social Security and Medicare will soon be. Political discussions commonly assume there are two separate sets of issues. There’s a social agenda — issues like abortion and marriage. And there’s an economic agenda — issues […]

By Alan Caruba ~ For a few years I was a regular contributor to Conservative Battleline on the website of the American Conservative Union (ACU) Foundation, edited by a fellow I knew only as Don Devine.
