Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Are you a Neo-Confederate? Does anyone really know exactly what that means? Usually it is used in a defamatory manner, it implies that you or your ancestors are sympathetic towards slavery... but does ANYONE in their right mind want to bring slavery back? Most "neo-confederates" are people proud of their southern culture. Yes, their were some bad parts of it, but there are bad parts of every culture. But the way the word is used in such a deragotary manner, means that "they" are trying to eradicate the culture of the south.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - There are those in the North who want to continue fighting Lincoln's War of Aggression until every Southern, Confederate is obliterated from history. From re-naming Military installations that were named after Confederate Generals because they were part of the "slaveocracy". Well, Jefferson, Washington, and many others were also members of the so-called "slaveocracy". And let's not forget the outrage that Yankees have over Robert E Lee! Many people in the North seem to think that the Confederacy was completely comprised of evil, racist, war-mongering, genocidal maniacs and that it had to be "put down" like it was some sort of rabid dog. These people that think like this are just despicable. For more on this be sure and check out today's Founders TV and sign up for a Founders Pass if you haven't already!

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - After the "stuff" hit the fan over Rand Paul's hiring and retention of Jack Hunter, there were very few that came to his defense. Most in the "mainstream media" (and talk radio mafia) were basically calling for Jack's head for things that they didn't even know if he wrote or not, and even if he did write these things about being proud of his Southern Heritage... what's wrong with that? Should everyone who had a grand-pappy or great-grand-pappy in the War of Northern Aggression just conveniently forget about them? Write them out of their family tree? And of course Jack isn't a fan of Lincoln (neither are we), he declared war on the Southern States! Does that mean he should excuse himself from polite society? No, in fact, it means that more people need to stand up for Jack. For more on this be sure and check out today's Founders TV and sign up for a Founders Pass if you don't already have one!

Of course, the story goes that Lincoln refused to see the commissioners because he knew that his force had been sent down to Charleston Harbor. It is believed by many that he was hoping that there would be a confrontation and he could use that as an excuse to threaten the South Carolinians with a full invasion and force them to undo their recent secession and rejoin the Union. That was the plan.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Ten counties in Colorado are voting on whether or not they want to SECEDE from the state of Colorado. And if it does happen and they are admitted into the Union (or they could stay out there on their own and start a trend) they'll have their own Governor, own Congressman, and won't have to answer to Gov Hickenlooper or the people of Denver. This is little r [r]epublicanism at work folks. Now a lot of people will see this Secession as a return to another S word... Slavery. But are there any people in Colorado talking about restarting plantation life? No. So wait, does this mean that Secession is actually about something OTHER than Slavery? Prepare for some minds to be blown folks. For more on this be sure and check out today's Founders TV and sign up for a Founders Pass if you haven't already!

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?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Now the government in the 21st century is trying to say that the health and welfare of every living soul on the North American continent is now the legislative duty and responsibility of the government of the United States. Some of us take great offense to that, see great danger in it, and do not want that principle, even though some have already surrendered on that principle when it comes to Medicare and Medicaid.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I would like to discover here, I continue on my voyage of discovery, what in the Hades is a neoconfederate sympathy? Does having a neoconfederate sympathy mean you had a relative who was shot and killed at Antietam and you put flowers on their grave and you don’t pitch a hissy fit because there’s a Confederate battle flag on the grave marker? Is that a Confederate sympathy? Is it a Confederate sympathy because you watch Gone with the Wind and think: Wow, the North really screwed and subjugated the South after that one, didn’t they? Is that a Confederate sympathy? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – We know that George Washington had friends and close associates that owned slaves. I demand that the U.S. Treasury -- as a matter of fact, I want a giant crane with a five-ton wrecking ball on the end of it to smash that thing called the Washington Monument. That thing needs to come down. Washington had friends that were slave owners. He had relatives that were slave owners. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I would say to anyone that harbors this point of view, if you’re so convinced that it was the confederacy that was the antecedent for Hitler’s regime or for Lenin’s regime or for Mussolini’s regime and that’s what gave rise to it, then you might as well go across the next bridge and say it was Madison and Mason and Martin and Sherman and heaven forefend Washington who came up with the original idea.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – That’s a question that requires a very long, long answer and requires a giant leap backwards in history. You could go all the way back and ask the question as to why the European immigrants into the new world, why they brought with them slaves they had captured against their will on the continent of Africa, and held them here in the colonies and then in the United States against their will as part of that awful, peculiar institution known as slavery. It’s a question that’s very robust and complex. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This hit piece, and that’s what this is, on the foreign policy initiative, or the Institute for Peace that Ron Paul has launched last week is just another one of these thinly-veiled attempts to kneecap anything that does not go along with the standard company line.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - What if the Confederacy had been left on it's own? What direction would it have taken? There's too many possible outcomes to count here... and they aren't all sunshine and roses. One possibility is the GRADUAL elimination of slavery in the south because many European countries wouldn't trade with them until they got rid of it, and would've given way to mechanized farming anyways. But there would've been a very different "course of Human Events" as Jefferson said. The western states would've allied with Texas instead of the Northeastern States and so on and so forth. For more on Rethinking the American Union be sure and check out today's Founders TV and pick up Prof. Donald Livingston's Book.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Politics is practiced by and among men. It is what we use to perfect the human condition. It is the tool that we believe, here in the 21st century, that we have at our disposal that can correct all the bad programming that God put into us. We can fix all of that bad programming. We can get all the things aligned that ought to be aligned if we just practice prudent politics. Check out today's transcript for the rest...

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - You see and hear it every day on this show when people call me up and argue with me about incorporation and deny the history. It has to do with this idea that the United States Constitution was sent by God, that it was carried down from Mt. Sinai, which was Independence Hall, carved on stone tablets, and we’re all sworn a perpetual and never-ending oath to uphold and worship it. It was a document, ladies and gentlemen, written by mortal men. They were flawed. Check out today's transcript for the rest...
