The Electoral College system is a compromise between the president being elected by Congress or by popular vote. It was established in Article II of the Constitution and amended by the 12th Amendment in 1804. Most folks know that a congressional district is based on population, but why aren’t...
Our Founding Fathers weren’t just a bunch of older White men who got together at some tavern and invented a set of rules for the future of a country. They were perhaps the most insightful group of men ever gathered in one place at one time. The Electoral College is a perfect example. While many on...
It is official, Kamala Harris is Biden’s VP and never before in the history of this country has there ever been a more anti-God Presidential ticket. Now that may be harsh to consider Biden/Harris to be the most anti-God candidacy ever, but all one has to do is to look at the party that they...
For years the decision to homeschool children was optional. Now in a COVID-19 world, it seems as if parents have no choice but to homeschool their children. And I rejoice. It is no secret that I am not a fan of the public educational system. It’s not that I do not support teachers, athletics, or...

Based on the 2.5 million new jobs reported in the May Jobs Report, the economic recovery from Covid-19 has officially started (yes, there were some technical problems with the report, which made it look better than it was, but any way you slice it, it was a positive report). While it’s wonderful...
The Radical Left Has Always Been Violent. When thinking about and discussing the Seattle situation in an honest way, we are not talking about Mahatma Ghandi or Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Our situation is more akin to the Black Panthers, SDS (Students for a Democratic Society) and the...
Spring is in the air . . . do you smell it? Feel it? See it?

I’m reminded of Psalm 1:3, which promises that...
