Mandeville, LA - Name the week of the year on a calendar and there is a good chance that Mike Church has brought up a man who inspired our founding fathers, David Hume and his "The Idea of a Perfect Commonwealth", on his Sirius/XM radio show or Founders TV show. Hume was an inspirational figure during the founding era and is well known to have inspired James Madison's views on the Constitution. Hume understood the concept of "human scale theory" as it applies to the size of po….Continue

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.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript –If we had one representative for every 30,000 souls, which was the vision of the framers and was honored all the way up until the 1910 census, if you have one representative for every 30,000 souls in the United States, you would have approximately, I believe the number is around 8,700 members of the House of Representin’. Now, where are 8,700 members of Congress going to meet? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The only way that I know of that you can, in a foolproof manner, remove the impediment is to create the conditions under which people are ready to separate from the impediment. Separation is the ultimate end of the impediment. A separation from that leviathan guarantees, unless they decide to declare war on you a la Lincoln, that you then have to actually practice the ancient and lost art of self-gover….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - What would Jefferson then say about how we’re so far out of scale today? What we mean by scale is you can’t have representation when your representative represents 709,000 people. That’s just a pipedream. What would Jefferson and company then do if they were going to try and arrest this evil that we all seem possessed of? My wager is that they would look towards establishing a much smaller, more representative government under ….Continue

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - We were told on November 7th or 8th when these petitions first hit the WhiteHouse.gov website, that these were just temper tantrums from sore losers who would move on. The White House posted the little response that these people would move on, that the knuckle-dragging Neanderthals that had asked about secession would crawl back in their caves and we’d nevermore hear about this silliness because we all know that Lincoln settled this ….Continue

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.
