Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Let’s go all the way back to 1787 and let’s figure out why there was a Senate to start with. To answer that question is to shed some light on the way things are supposed to work in the American constitutional system, which, by the time I’m finished with this, it’s not the way I’m going to tell you they work because they don’t work like that any longer.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – People love to call radio shows and make Twitter and Facebook posts all about Saul Alinsky, who’s dead, and whose Rules for Radicals can inspire us to be Obama-like and understand what the Obamabots are doing.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I wish it were a news flash, but it’s not a news flash that the welfare state has replaced the charity state and the little laboratories of philanthropy and democracy that de Tocqueville saw when he came here back in the 1820s and 1830s and wrote a book about it called Democracy in America. I think the experiment was doomed to fail as soon as the first bow was breached. We can wax vainglorious all we want to about the magnanimity….Continue

Was Secession A Constitutional Right? 1868 Book Concluded It Was. "In order to show that the Constitution is not a compact between the States, the position is assumed, that it is not a compact at all. If it be a compact, say they, then the States had a right to secede. But it is not a compact; and hence secession is treason and rebellion. The great fundamental questions, then, on which the whole controversy hinges are, first, Is the Constitution a compact? and, secondly, Is it a compact between the States?"
