You wanna talk inequality?

As defined by Ind. Code § 3-5-2-30, there are two extremely unequal classes of citizens in terms of political and electoral rights, powers, privileges and immunities in Indiana: Those associated with the two private organizations called “Major Political Parties” (Democratic party partisans and Republican party partisans), and, Everyone else. This violates the equal protections clause of […]

No, court cases and precedents are not laws…

The United States Constitution has a fine Preamble.  But the preamble is just a preamble.  The USA Constitution’s first words of actual law follow immediately after that one-sentence preamble.  This sentence is Article I, Section I: “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of […]

Let’s chase the fox out of the henhouse

Please do me a favor and write letters to the editor, to your local radio and print broadcast, regarding a terrible, destructive, unconstitutional and criminal scam that’s been worsening for the past one hundred years. The private clubs we call the Demoratic and Republican parties have, as you know, granted themselves special status, powers and […]

Wanted: A Lawyer to Save the Law

George Washington, among others, warned us about political parties. Andrew Jackson waged war on the “den of vipers” central bankers. Woodrow Wilson described the “worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world.” Dwight Eisenhower revealed a “military industrial complex.” Even today’s politicians scold us about political corruption. Yet […]

Euphemysticism, and other Almighty Powers

Speak Truth

I am, and have been for quite a while now, truth be known, a progressive liberal. No, I am not a “classical liberal,” since that implies something has changed since the words’ first invocation.  Nothing has changed.  Wicked people are still twisting language; and idiots are still falling for it. Let others defend their moniker or change […]

Let’s Clean Up our Mess

In an OP-ED for Indiana Policy Review I lay out the steps to clean up our mess: End the duopoly. Drive away the moneychangers. Stand down the Empire. Nearly all of what we call “issues” — the unraveling economy, a ridiculous healthcare system, rising prices, even militarized police and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria — are just symptoms and side effects […]

Immigration or invasion?

I wrote this many years ago now.  Immigration isn’t the issue du jour at present, but just wait…we haven’t fixed anything yet… Laws are words; let’s get them straight. “Immigration” is when somebody lawfully moves from one place to another. “Illegal aliens” are those who cross borders in violation of laws. Tens of millions of illegal […]

Your government is corrupt. Very, very corrupt.

We all know it to at least some degree. I suppose we don’t react to it in any useful way because it has happened gradually, over several generations, in a sort of frog-in-the-cookpot scenario.  And maybe we just can’t picture anything better than what we’ve suffered all our lives. But I don’t know why we even […]
