Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Why are members of the war party out there stumping for war in Syria? This is just perplexing and it’s so damn frustrating. I have this member of Congress, Tom Cotton, who is on Meet the Half-Court Press yesterday. “The United States should arm opposition fighters in Syria and create a no-fly zone over the war-torn nation,” Representative Tom Cotton (R-AR) said on NBC’s Meet the Press. What interest do the people of Arkan….Continue

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Who is to say, without government mandate that a health insurance company must cover this, cover mental health, cover reproductive services, hangnails, whatever else they say you must cover, who is to say that any of the things that prolong life or are beneficial to the human condition and to our health are based on the price mechanism? The only way you would develop these things is if people could afford to pay for them. Check out….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – For years on this show, I’ve been leading the charge in getting people to rethink our bellicose, out-of-control, unconstitutional, ahistorical foreign policy. We need to act more like that shining city on the hill that we always claim that we are, start leaving people alone, start being the actual beacon of freedom and liberty in the world by not dictating to it what we want it to do, and then trying to enforce it. Check out toda….Continue

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - This is a controversy that happened yesterday between Senator Hagel, Senator Inhofe, Senator Cruz and I think Senator McCain is involved or maybe Senator Nelson at some point. This is over the nomination of Senator Hagel to be Secretary of Defense. If you haven’t heard this, it’s quite acrimonious. You’re going to hear one senator accusing another of some manner of un-gentleman-like behavior. Check out today's transcript for th….Continue

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - In his speech to the Heritage Foundation yesterday Rand Paul successfully walked the line between big R Republicanism and non-interventionism while quoting James Madison in the process. Now we know that Madison isn't the best Founding Father to be quoting on foreign policy but he would ranks in the the 95th percentile of non-interventionists were he alive today. We know that Rand isn't Ron but now we have a clearer idea of what his ….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Again, people are staring at a tree, at a piece of bark on a tree. There’s a giant forest all around that tree. The forest is this, and no one including Senator Paul asked this question or intimated that it should have been asked. What in dude’s holy name were we doing in Libya to start with under those conditions? Who brought it about? It was brought about by the illegal, unconstitutional military ….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Ok, the Republic of San Marino WAS founded a long time ago (3 September 301 AD) but it's not in another galaxy... it occupies just over 24 sq miles on the east coast of Italy. Why is San Marino important you may ask? Well, they have the worlds oldest written constitution still in effect, and how did it get that way? They weren't invaded by a foreign country? No, because San Marino doesn't have an Army (other than a few people for f….Continue
George Will: the impossibility of restoring the Constitution in an era of foolish expectations - What I like to call "Leviathanitis" the belief that because this is OUR government (it's American after all!) we can have it all from IT.

Was Secession A Constitutional Right? 1868 Book Concluded It Was. "It was in 1833, for the frst time in the history of the country, that it was solemnly asserted and argued, that the Constitution of the 'United States was not a compact between the States. This new doctrine simultaneously put forth, by Mr. Justice Story in his "Commentaries on the Constitution of the 'United States," and by Mr. Daniel Webster in "the greatest intellectual effort of his life," that is, in his great speech in the Senate of the I6th of February, 1833. 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?" - Albert Bledsoe, Was Secession A Constitutional Right (1868)
