Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, chock full of the latest tyranny bloviated out by NV Harry Reid at NV rancher Cliven Bundy. I’ll also cover the facts surrounding taxes in early America and what a joke they were compared to the thievery suffered today. Read along with Mike’s historical viewpoint to help make sense of it all plus other [r]epublican stories used to perform the Mike Church Show on Sirius/XM Patriot channel 125. “A reactionary considers character but distrusts publicity; he is a patriot but not a nationalist; he favors conservation rather than conservatism; he defends the ancient blessings of the land and is dubious about the results of technology; he believes in history, not in Evolution. . . . A reactionary will recognize how . . . An Idea Whose Time Has Come may not be any good.”[“ – John Lukacs, Confessions of an Original Sinner
My favorite writer of the last 50 years is no doubt M.E. Bradford. Lee Cheek & Sean Busic have done us all wonderful favor by reviewing and essaying Bradford’s work into 2 essays posted at Nomocracy in Politics (H/T Imaginative Conservative!). Bradford wrote of Southern Conservatism “For the Agrarians, the measure of any economic or political system was its human product. Goods, services, and income are, to this way of thinking, subsidiary to the basic cultural consideration, the overall form of life produced. Of course, the Agrarians were anti-egalitarian. They knew the abstract drive toward Equality . . . to be the mortal enemy of the patriarchy.”
How do you become Editor of the National Review? You swallow 55 gallon drums full of american exceptionalism, gargle with a healthy does of Corporatism for Dummies then finish it off with the “naiveté” of Senator Rand Pal’s “foreign policy” which attracts the term “non-interventionist- so guys like Rich Lowry can endlessly sharpen his “death to Iran sword”

Citizen! Obey your Federal Overlords and surrender the Federal land and does, citizen! NV rancher is in armed standoff with Federales who claim they own his land and cows that his family has ranched since 1888. Can you say “Waco”?

I think Birzer is note correct than he is not as Hamilton was a diverse character and, as I show in Times That Try Men’s Souls, he was an American patriot of the Continental Army.

The Fame of Our Fathers: What makes a famous Founder famous and why are so many, once famous, now not known at all?
