Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Doesn’t the Obama administration, didn’t the Bush administration before it, didn’t the Clinton administration pose mortal threats to republicanism? Not only did they pose mortal threats to it, they have succeeded in almost snuffing it out. You are not free to debate many of the great issues of our time in your local town hall. You’re going to be told, “Well, Congress, has already settled that. The Supreme Court has already settled that. You don’t have any say so in that.” Republicanism is what was defeated. This began the process of finally defeating republicanism in 1865. It took another 70 years or so to completely snuff it out, but by the time of the Supreme Court revolution of the late 1950s, aided and abetted by the New Deal, republicanism lay dormant or near dormant. It was killed in the 1960s. This is what must be revived, republicanism. It doesn’t have anything to do with slavery, nothing, zero. It has everything to do with local rule, self-determination and republicanism. Check out today's transcript for the rest...
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This is as basic a fundamental -- when you talk about privileges and immunities clauses in constitutions, when privileges and immunities came up during the debates over ratification, this is exactly what was being talked about, the old vote with your feet.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Isn’t it quite amazing, ladies and gentlemen, this is the year of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Anno Domini 2013, and we are about to see a quasi-war fought between two sovereign states over the oldest and probably most reliable source of marshal affairs: natural resources. One state or country has it and another country doesn’t and needs it. This is as old as the Philistines. This is as old as the Book of Genesis. We need water, you got it, let’s start a war. We need food, you got it, we’re going to start a war. We need fertile farmland, you go it, let’s start a war. This is as old as it gets here. This is happening, friends.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - Can you imagine a scenario that President Obama wakes up one morning and goes down to his briefing and he’s in there with Axelrod and that troll Valerie Jarrett and the rest of them? “What’s this new petition that we can’t go over the debt ceiling?” Axelrod whips out your petition and they read it and they go: “That’s funny! That’s a good one! Is there another one? Can we hear it again?” Not to undermine the effort, but that’s like if you get a bill from the IRS and call them up. You say: Look, I took a petition in my neighborhood and we all agree that I shouldn’t have to pay this. You think that will work? Check out the rest in today's audio and transcript...
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Here's a quote from Mike's interview with Kirkpatrick Sale, for the rest be sure and check out today's transcript, "The purpose of [the Emancipation Proclamation] was to destroy the Southern economy. The idea was that the slaves would rise up on the plantations and take over the plantations so that foodstuff couldn’t go to the Confederate Army, and maybe they would even start to kill here and there on the plantations, and that would bring the soldiers back home to defend their wives and children. That was the idea of the Emancipation Proclamation. Of course, it didn’t achieve what it intended to do. All it served to do at the time was to give the North and the army of the North a cause that they didn’t have before, a kind of John Brown cause of freedom, liberty for the blacks that they had not had before. Before, they had just been fighting to preserve the union, and that didn’t animate the army the way the idea of freedom animated it. The battle cry of freedom became their battle cry."
