Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Stephen Masty writes at the Imaginative Conservative that "America could do a service to herself, and to her lonely and overworked Presidents, by returning to monarchy." Sounds crazy huh? Well, maybe if Obama would go to a play, a movie, or a basketball game more often, he'd have less time to be "running the country". Also, Lords would have more incentive to stand up for their peoples property rights than a group of "robber barons a….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This is as basic a fundamental -- when you talk about privileges and immunities clauses in constitutions, when privileges and immunities came up during the debates over ratification, this is exactly what was being talked about, the old vote with your feet. If you happen to vote with your feet and a bunch of people that look like you vote with your feet and you wind up owning property in the same area, s….Continue

That was the first time in the history of the United States when the Congress decided that they would not use the census to determine representation in the House. They froze it.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - In his essay "Idea of a Perfect Commonwealth", David Hume had a lot to say about the scale of government.

It would….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - The GSA wasted $868,000, that’s about the amount of money Congress borrows in a minute to finance the deficit. That’s how preposterous and ridiculous this is, but we’re all outraged over it. The American taxpayer, if there is such an animal out there, should not be looking at this through the rose-colored glasses. What you should see is an insurmountable mountain. You’re down at the bottom of Mount Everest and you just clim….Continue
