The Parable of Four Farmers Explains What A State Is For republicans

"This is another interesting point of discussion when we talk about this. Exactly what is a State? Is a State a geographical entity? Well, you could say that you call the State of Georgia, for example, Georgia because of the border it has with Tennessee and South Carolina and Alabama and Florida, which are very well-defined and well-known, but does that make it a State or is that just a boundary where that State ends and the next State begins?"

What Will It Take For You People To See That Federalism And The Constitution Are Dead And Buried?

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.

The Founding Fathers Weren’t Gods, And Neither Are Modern Politicians

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 and the genius and brilliance of the founding fathers, but the fact of the matter remains that it’s their system that has become corrupted.

What Did The Founders Think Of Big Government? Let’s Ask John Taylor Of Caroline

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The last caller to the program asked me what I thought the founders, why they opposed or why they afraid of big government. I said to him that to answer that question, you’d have to understand or explain exactly what big government would have meant to them. It did not mean to them what it means to us today, because we see this monstrosity and this excessive abuse of power that unfortunately has become commonplace, it seems, has been accepted by the rank-and-file citizenry out there, and is the great tragedy indeed of the early part of the 21st century, I think.

The Grand Leviathan Chess Game Stars U.S. Citizens As Pawns

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I guess the point I’m trying to make by relaying to you what Fineman is writing here is that we are all but numbers in the grand elite game of chess that’s being played, with the grand prize being $3.8 trillion of other people’s money that these clowns in Washington, DC get to spend every year. It’s all neatly broken down for us now. We can subdivide results and then subdivide results, instead of just relying on the aged and the old and the institutional and the traditional of we know this is good and that is bad.

Media Is Very Quiet About Secession Vote In Colorado

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Getting a sampling of what you people are thinking and talking about today, many of you are pointing out that you’ve tried to Google search to get some news, view some news from the secession initiatives in Colorado yesterday and you can’t find it. I had the same problem. I had to change and alter my search a couple of times this morning before I was able to get anything. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

The Progressive Virus Has Attacked Once Again, This Time In Virginia And Colorado

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Just looking at the electoral map of Virginia, you have an entire state, I’d say about 90 percent of the geographical area, is entirely red. These aren’t even close reds. Click on any one of the counties and not one of them is a horse race. Then you have a couple pockets of the virus. The virus is those teat-sucklers that work for Mordor. If you look close on that map, if you blow it up, you can even see the perpendicular lines where those three counties have been carved out of the ten-mile square.

Andrew Sullivan’s Take On Conservatism And Whether It Can Be Saved

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Well, open today’s Pile of Prep and you will find a link and a quote to a blog post written by Andrew Sullivan. Sullivan writes at The Dish, which is a website that he -- he used to write for The Atlantic. He went out on his own. He’s one of these guys that’s trying to be an independent and not have to work for the man, as it were. He has a brief piece titled “Can American Conservatism Be Saved?” In the piece we find some, I think, worthy discussion. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

You Won’t Find Your Leader Of The 101st Talk Radio Show Militia Here

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Simpson makes the other brilliant point, which is very rarely discussed. Let’s just say that what you think is going to happen actually happens. What happens after that? Who gets to run the show? You people think there’s actually another George Washington out there? Our revolution was very unique. Our revolution was one of the very rare instances in the history of all humanity, 8,000 years of recorded history, ours was one of the very, very rare instances where at the end of a revolution, a king, a monarch, or a dictator did not move in to assume power.

Patrick Deneen Asks A Great Question: “What Is An American Conservative?”

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – There is an essay at The American Conservative Magazine website. [mocking] “Mike, you were hard on The American Conservative Magazine yesterday.” Yeah, well, I was just being honest. I don’t ask for jingoism from anyone else, so I don’t expect that anyone expects they’re going to get jingoism or Homerism from yours truly. In any event, The American Conservative Magazine’s Patrick J. Deneen posts what I think is an article -- this is not internet folly, not fantasy, not made up and comprised of a bunch of forwarded, hackneyed emails that aren’t true. The title of the piece is “What Is an American Conservative?” That is a great question. Check out today's transcript for the rest...

Senator Cruz’s Filibuster Should Be About Obamacare Ushering In An Oligarchy

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – It makes it a national one, or even more dangerously, it makes it an oligarchical system, meaning the rulers make the rules the rest of us live by while exempting themselves from same. There is nothing that prevents them, nothing that prevents them from inserting their opinion and altering the course of human history in any way, manner, shape, or form that they deign to be necessary. That is not how a federal system can operate. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Interview With Dwayne Stovall, U.S. Senate Candidate For Texas

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I’ve been teasing you about this all day long. Who is this mystery candidate who is going to be the next candidate, he’s going to announce here on this show that he is going to seek the nomination to be on the ballot come November 2014 to run for United States Senate against an unnamed Democratic opponent? He is hailing from the great State of Texas. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Northern Colorado Is Going republican

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – They act as though the State of Colorado owns the citizens of northern Colorado, and that the citizens of northern Colorado are not sovereign political entities in and of their own right should they choose to be. Folks, this is the law of nations. This is what 18th and 19th century republicanism is all about. It is all about gathering together and forming, through geographical boundaries, sovereign entities to practice self-government, republicanism. That’s why we call it republicanism.

SCOTUS, DOMA, Gay Marriage, and Chastity (OH MY!)

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – We seem now to have arrived at a juncture in our collective evolution where things that were once deviant are now no longer deviant. I asked the question as to: Why was it deemed deviant in the first place? Of course, one of the things is homosexuality. One of the other deviant behaviors was extramarital sex. We can name a few others. Now that we’ve normalized these things and we have made them as legitimate a part of our lives as anything else or any other practice, what do you think the fallout has been from the “decriminalization” of premarital sex and then what results in that, which is 43 percent of all American children being born to single, unwed mothers?

Supreme Court Continues To Disregard Constitution And Strengthen Federal Leviathan

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I’m going to walk you through a couple of the legal -- these are very easy to understand -- reasoning behind why the power to choose electors was left in the hands of the states, and why the Supreme Court erred mightily yesterday. Justice Thomas points this out at the end of his dissent: What you guys are doing here, you are undermining and eroding the foundation of the constitutional system itself.

Big Government Prevails Again – Plan B Pill Available To Anyone, Anytime

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Once they got all this set into motion, the continuation of science creaming, absolutely slaughtering faith in the public square was accentuated. There were court cases that made sure this was the mantra that Americans should chortle and repeat. They have been working on this for over a hundred years now and it’s all about to come to fruition.

Why Do We Have State Constitutions If They’re Going To Be Usurped By The Federal Supreme Court?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Let me give you the latest example of losing republicanism, this God-awful ruling that comes from the Supreme Court of the United States yesterday. You can read Scalia’s entire dissertation on why Kennedy was in error in leading a 5-4 majority in favor of universal DNA swabbing. Now, if you get arrested for anything, wherever it is that you’re arrested at, if Deputy Fife decides he wants to swab you to grab some DNA, it’s now a one-size-fits-all permissible rule.

Mark Kreslins: “I Say End The IRS Completely. CAN I GET AN AMEN!?”

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - They want to launch investigations into this scandal that's going on at the IRS. But what does that mean? Maybe a couple of people go to jail... MAYBE. But what would really be the best thing that could happen? The ending of the IRS. End the income tax. End the payroll tax. And you know how you do it, by restoring Federalism... or by dissolving the Union (yup, there's the s-word secession again). But really, why does the Federal Government NEED $4 TRILLION dollars from you? They can get what they need from excise taxes and other places to run the Government as configured in 1776... but not from your pocket.

We Have An Empire… Should We Just Face It?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - According to Daniel McCarthy's post at the American Conservative, "How a Federal Republic Becomes an Ideological Empire", little r [r]epublicans and localists need to just drop your delusions, face the facts, and become good little nationalists yourselves. Daniel makes many good points about HOW we got to this point, including how the Founders, especially James Madison, could not have predicted many of the things that were going to happen in the country in the coming years and the safeguards they were trying to create to keep us from having a national government, simply were not enough. But his conclusion, that little r [r]epublicans are delusional and Quixotic in their philosophy and must start thinking more nationally and Empirically is something that we believe is impossible.

Interview With Senator Frank Niceley of Tennessee

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – You have a most intriguing and peculiar piece of legislation that actually was the brainchild of one of my organizations, the ReFounding Father Society. This is at least partially James Knox’s idea here, about how to restore some manner of federalism in the election or selection of senators, in this case in the State of Tennessee. Can you just elaborate a little on what the bill does and does not do? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Conservatives Need To Stop Fighting Over Details And Study History

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This is why this schism is occurring inside conservative ranks. Number one, people don’t truly study conservative things. They don’t study the classics. They don’t study their actual history. They’re willing to take the mythological versions that modern-day charlatans publish, broadcast and what have you without doing their own due diligence. They haven’t considered the way the great traditions came about and why they are worthy of promoting and defending in their own lives. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
