Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Now you and I can talk about preserving my Financial Sanity in Three Easy Lessons, your new book. David Simpson, whom many of you know, he’s been on the show many times, he’s provided financial counsel to me in the past. What are the three easy lessons? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – People love to call radio shows and make Twitter and Facebook posts all about Saul Alinsky, who’s dead, and whose Rules for Radicals can inspire us to be Obama-like and understand what the Obamabots are doing. I think what the Obamabot zombies are doing is a lot more related to, as I discussed earlier, the transfer of wealth than you may be willing to admit. The reason why people are not willing to admit it or don’t want to adm….Continue
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 – As far as your third party, I don’t have the answer to your political question, because I don’t think that politics is going to solve or is capable of solving any of this. If it were, then I would think since the Roman polis was created, or if you want to go back to the Athenian republics of ancient Greece, I would think over the ensuing almost 3,000 years, man would have figured this out, don’t you think? I would say that po….Continue
Mandeville, LA - "The whole field of public beneficence is thrown open to the care and culture of the Federal Government. Generous impulses no longer encounter the limitations and control of our imperious fundamental law; for however worthy may be the present object in itself, it is only one of a class. It is not exclusively worthy of benevolent regard. Whatever considerations dictate sympathy for this particular object apply in like manner, if no….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The last caller to the program asked me what I thought the founders, why they opposed or why they afraid of big government. I said to him that to answer that question, you’d have to understand or explain exactly what big government would have meant to them. It did not mean to them what it means to us today, because we see this monstrosity and this excessive abuse of power that unfortunately has become commonplace, it seems, has b….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Quite possibly for the first time in the history of the United States, there is an edict that has been issued by our almighty federal overlords who are camped out on the banks of the Potomac River in what I like to refer to as Mordor on the Potomac River. For the first time, they may have actually achieved what it was that they set out to do, which was to assume some manner of control over the personal lives of all 310 million citiz….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I just found it really fortuitous that I stumbled upon this letter while watching the Snowden clip about the nobility of the federal government and that’s what it was that drew Edward Snowden to it, then tying the whole immigration part of this letter to our current pickle over said immigration, being able to then see that back in 1794, 1795, 1796, just years after the Constitution went into effect, me….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If you’re a fan of nullification, you’re going to want to read this piece. From this little gathering in Fredericksburg, Virginia comes the inspiration for great things, which are the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions, of course Kentucky written by Jefferson, Virginia written by Madison, both with an assist from Taylor of Caroline. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I would think that any man or woman of good conscience and that holds near and dear that cherished jewel, as Henry called it, of liberty would not only be alarmed by this but would be spurred into action. Alarm won’t do anything; action will. Pitchforks and torches are called for here. Just assume then that all of us have been eavesdropped on. Every single one of us has been violated. We have been violated because we are citiz….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 – The citizens of this country are just as stupid as we can be, and that includes our forefathers who are just as lazy and apathetic as we could be. All the powers that we have granted that we refuse to reclaim are just mindboggling. The tyranny that could be inveighed on our heads is just staggering. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - My point is, we’re not the first people to deal with this, so let’s just get over ourselves. Let’s just get over our own little hubris and arrogance. Go about living your life. Don’t worry about your friends that you can’t convince. There are always going to be idgets out there and there’s always going to be ignorant people. You cannot control them. You can influence them by your actions. ….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - James Madison and the Making of America is out in paperback today. The author, of course, the one and only Kevin Gutzman, is on the Dude Maker Hotline with us. Check out today's transcript for the rest...….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
This Day in Founding Founders History - Where we bring you important dates in the lives and history of the Founding Generation. One notable birthday on this day in history in 1753, that of John Taylor of Caroline.….Continue
Chantilly VA - The following text is the rough outline Mike Church used to deliver prepared remarks to the LPAC 2012 conference, 14 September, 2012 at the Westfields Marriott Center, Chantilly, VA. Founders DID NOT envision: Medicare, Medicaid, The Ag Department, the Helium Dept, The CBO, The OMB, SSA, SSB and Bureau of BS almost anything that has 3 or 4 Alphabet soup characters in it. Founders DID NOT envision Iraq, Iran, Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Sau….Continue
