Mandeville, LA – It often comes to my attention that most folks think it entirely proper that the Federal Government should design, confiscate the property, then build and maintain millions of miles of Interstate roads and bridges. Many time people use the argument that “well the Constitution does give Congress authority to build post roads.”...

I am often asked the question: Mike, if you’re so sure there is no hope for the Constitution and the Union why don’t YOU just give up!?” And the answer is “just because the fight seems unwinnable that doesn’t mean that it is worth fighting. That’s where the “Brave Horatius at the bridge” poem comes...

From Mike Church – This is the debate held in committee of the whole on the qualifications for holding office in the new federal government. The Framers took great care to discuss the influence that foreigners could weild if they were not careful. I originally came to this debate because it helps flesh out the reasons...

On today’s show I introduced you to Thomson Mason, George Mason’s brother. Thomson was heavily involved in the writing of Revolutionary War tracts asserting the rights of the Colonists living in their sovereign “states”. Mason is the author of the letter I read on today’s show which read in part. “It is objected that this...

Adams wrote this letter to Declaration of Independence signer William Hooper of North Carolina. He also transcribed this out by hand to William Penn and R.H. Lee of Virginia. Lee would circulate the contents and ideas among his peers in Virginia. These ideas helped form the foundation for Virginia’s first Constitution which was written and...

I discovered Austrian Economics through my reading of Freidrich von Hayek. At the time I read Hayek (twice!) there wasn’t an “Austrian” I could recite by name, now thanks to the Von Mises institute and mises.org I can recite a lot of names and also a lot of Austrian theory. Free markets are the greatest...

The number one question I am asked about my movies is “where did you get all that information from”? Well, when the subject is the U.S. Constitution there is one very reliable and unimpeachable source: The Documentary History of The Ratification of the U.S. Constitution, edited by Joseph Kaminski… The volumes that I have presonally...

The most frequent question I get from listeners about the Constitution is “Why don’t you believe that the second amendment applies to the states you gun grabber!?” This then brings up the most misunderstood use of the Constitution: to “incorporate” the first ten amendments to the states (using the “due process clause of the 14th...

Mandeville, LA – If you have ever heard the term “Straussians” you may have wondered “who was Strauss?” The next question should be then “how did Strauss come to influence so many if so few know about him?” Leo Strauss was a German emigre who escaped the war and landed as a professor at the...

Thomas Jefferson delivered his first state of the union address in writing. He did not call a session of Congress to deliver this in person. Fellow Citizens of the Senate and House of Representatives: 8 December, 1801 – It is a circumstance of sincere gratification to me that on meeting the great council of our...

I briefly alluded to professor Buchanan’s “Public Choice Theory” on Thursday, 7 January 2010. As I have been saying for overe a year now it is absolute folly to believe in “reform” or “reform candidates” when it comes to Mordor on the Potomac. Our Constitution is dead and Congress is an ad hoc government making...

Ronald Reagan LOVED the Constitution and in fact, issued Constitution Day Proclamations on every Sept. 17th that he was in Office! Were it only so today. I can find no mention of Constitution Day anywhere on the Whitehouse website and have heard nothing from President Bush. Most people will give some sort of “really. today...

Begin Mike Church Show Transcript Mike:  What is the difference between the men that were in public life at the turn of the 18th Century – from 1760 to 1800 or 1810, say – what is the difference between those men and the citizenry at large, for that matter, and between us?  And the big...

In my reserach for the sequel to the Fame of Our Fathers – “The Spirit of ’76” I have read lots of stuff about the Constitution and the Ratification debates. M.E. Bradford’s Book of essays contained in “Original Intentions” are some of the best- modern day defenses – of states rights and the fact that...
