Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Many so-called "conservatives" (aka Decepticons) will tell you that the Constitution is a document that was handed down to the Founding Fathers by God himself. But the people that tell you that probably have never actually even read the Constitution, or if they have, they don't know about Patrick Henry, or why he objected the ratification of it, why Governor Yates walked out of the debates. It's not a perfect document. Those same people will tell you that the Constitution grants the ultimate power to the Federal Government (which it does not). So why do we even need the Constitution or the Federal Government? Well, we don't. For more with Mark 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 - My strongest ally, ladies and gentlemen, as a citizen of the State of Louisiana, is the State of Texas. That is my strongest ally.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The way I read history and the way it used to be read all the way up until, I don’t know, maybe 1971 or so, to the “modern era,” the Supreme Court was convened and existed because of Article III in the U.S. Constitution. I know it’s old and antiquated, fuddy-duddy, and we don’t use it anymore. It’s dead and doesn’t mean what it once was. People in 1788 couldn’t have possibly known that Stan would be in love with Steve and would need a marriage license and it would have to be under the blessing of the Supreme Court, blah, blah, blah. Yeah, I know all those things. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What is a state? Why do we care what a state is? Why should it matter? That’s an even better question. This is part of the intellectual due diligence process that we should go through in these instances and remind your fellow citizens. Why do we have states? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - If you can accede to a plan of government, wouldn't it make sense that if the plan becomes injurious, that you can secede? Based on what's going on in Atlanta, with the suburbs seceding from their bankrupt cities, wouldn't it make sense that the next step would be for a state to secede from it's bankrupt National Government? Of course, that's if they can "get away with it" because if a state tries to secede, peacefully, what do you think the answer from Washington will be? "Uh, you can't do that... because we said so... and we kinda need your money." Check out today's Founders TV for more and sign up for a Founders Pass if you don't already have one...
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - The "Progressive Professor" has an article about how Rand Paul is "reviving Nullification from the Pre Civil War Years", the Civil War was fought over precisely that issue, and that viewpoint lost the war. Well, sorry to burst your bubble Mr. Professor but the Civil War was NOT fought over Nullification, the southern states felt like they weren't getting the proper representation in the Federal Legislature and lose any form of self government, so they did what they thought was best for them... they SECEDED. And the war part of it happened because Lincoln was the aggressor and created a Union army to agitate the Southern States.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Bloody civil wars are entered into by political choice. That is not a legal question; that is a political question. I don’t think, and I reject all of you that are so ginned up and believe a bloody civil war is right around the corner. My God, think about it when you say that. Why would you even wish that on the people? Check out today's transcript for the rest...
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - If you people in Texas want to secede, you better know what those on your borders think about it. What does Louisiana think about it? What does Arkansas think about it? What does Oklahoma think about it? What does New Mexico think about it? What do the states around you think about it? There are serious things to consider here. I believe in considering those things you might start some critical thinking and there may be an actual, bona fide threat to the federal leviathan’s tyranny that is reigning today. Maybe, just maybe, some cooler heads in that body might say: Maybe we ought to back off some of this and not spend all that money we’re going to spend. Maybe we should listen to these guys. I think they’re serious this time. Check out the rest in today's audio and transcript...
