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….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The question that Michael raises in terms of with Rand Paul endorsing Mitch McConnell for reelection in Kentucky, we do have the conflict that arises and the question in terms of: Do we want politicians that we elect to work within the inside political gamesmanship of DC? Is that what Senator Paul is doing? Or is that viewed as a capitulation of their ideals because they are then becoming a part of the problem? Check out today’s….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Did you hear the rest of what Paine said? If the power to tax and the power to bind in all cases whatsoever, if that is not slavery, he didn’t know what was or is. Aren’t we operating under the exact same threat that this government, this State can bind us in all cases whatsoever and that we are not free to leave it, that we can’t leave it, and we’re not free to say no? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – A case has been made that is one that is counter to the one the president made. As I said, I think the most powerful part of it is: I will not vote to send my son, your son, or your daughter into an unnecessary war. Candidate Paul continues to branch out and become more of a force or more of a contender to be reckoned with. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – So Monroe never leaves the service of the United States. Remember, he gets in in 1776, gets out as president in 1824, still stays on -- I can’t recall the exact title he took or the task he accepted -- all the way up till his death. I believe he dies in New York City as part of some commission that he’s been appointed to. He never leaves public service, as you government employees call it today. Check out today’s transcript….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The patriot ought to be the first one that raises his hand and says: We should be a beacon of peace and liberty to the world, and we should only rear our arms in our own defense, this existential own defense. What we’re doing abroad is unconscionable and would not be something that your average member of the founding father generation would sign off on. As a matter of fact, they would recoil in horro….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – “Sales Tax: History of a Dumb Idea” by Mason Gaffney, this is part of my post. I found this wonderful essay written by Mr. Gaffney in Insights Magazine back in 2005 about sales taxes. He writes about the history of the sales tax. It goes way, way back, farther than you can ever imagine. Check out today’s audio and transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I want to repeat, there are three instances under which the militia would fall under the control of the Congress, and then only to write rules for how they should be disciplined. The three instances are: there is a declaration of war, the country or a state has been invaded by a foreign warring force, or there has been a rebellion in one of the states and the governor or the legislature of that state has asked for help in putting it….Continue

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - You said Tyler is your favorite president.

Why? Check out today's transcript for the rest...….Continue

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Rand Paul is giving an intriguing speech on Foreign Policy to the Heritage Foundation next week... and why is that intriguing you might ask? Becuase the Heritage Foundation is one of the biggest promoters of "American Exceptionalism" in the world.
