Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I mentioned earlier that today is the anniversary of George Washington’s first inauguration in New York City. It was a very festive occasion. According to some that witnessed the event, it was also an event that was met with an awful lot of trepidation and dis-certitude.

Contains Exclusive: Audio, Video Topics: , , , , , , , , , ,

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Approximately 240 years ago the Congress and Senate were supposed to have their first meeting to elect the first President of the United States of America... but not enough Senators showed up to form a quorum. There were enough Congressmen there, but it took them several weeks and numerous letters to get some of the Senators (ahem,Virginia, ahem) there. And of course, when enough finally got to Federal Hall in New York, they electe….Continue

Government Out Of Scale - What Would Jefferson Do?

Contains Exclusive: Transcript Topics: , , , , , , , , , ,

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

The Modern American Tradition Is The Illusion Of Freedom

Contains Exclusive: Transcript Topics: , , , , , , , , ,

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - The American tradition is not necessarily changing power. The American tradition is congratulating one’s self on the illusion that there is this thing called freedom. If you were to define freedom, what is freedom? Is freedom freewill? Is it the exercise of freewill, living under the moral order of God? Is that what freedom is? If it is, then please explain to me how you are free today. You certainly may be free to do certain th….Continue

The Jefferson Inauguration... Much Different From Obama's

Contains Exclusive: Audio, Video Topics: , , , ,

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Things were a little different when Thomas Jefferson became president of the United States... there was no motorcade with limos, no 10-inch thick bulletproof glass, no Beyoncé singing the national anthem, not even any microphones. But what TJ's inauguration did have was the spirit of Independence and Liberty.

[The powerful Executive branch]...converts representation into vassalage to the leaders of parties, disciplined, not by the comparatively honourable infliction of the lash, but by the base and wicked sophism, that it is honourable to stick to a party, and treacherous to adhere to conscience. The disciples of this infamous doctrine are forged into tools for ambition and tyranny by praises and rewards, whilst honesty is discouraged by base epithets, as a foil to the varnish with which the decoys are painted, designed to deceive and enslave the multitude

John Taylor of Caroline from his 1814 book "An Inquiry Into the Principles & Policy of the Government of the United States"
