The Supreme Court Votes on Obamacare Today

We won’t know the result until late June, most likely.  And the results of today’s vote could change by then. Still, it’s sort of weird that after three years of public, wildly emotional and stupifyingly complex arguments, the fate of the republic comes down to a short meeting in Washington involving nine people in a …

A Health Insurance Solution that Some Smart State Should Try

The term “United States” is both plural (many states united) and singular (the United States). The tag line “e pluribus unum” loses its meaning if we cease to be many, if we give up our identities as individual states. As states, we are as different from each other as the United States is from Canada. …

It’s Impossible to Exaggerate the Historical Importance of the Supreme Court’s ObamaCare Decision

When the Supreme Court releases its opinion on the ObamaCare case, America will change fundamentally. This is the most important case to the future of the republic since the Great Depression or the Civil War.  If the court upholds ObamaCare, it will end the principle of government limited by a written Constitution.  Anthony Kennedy and …

The Supreme Court Will Also Decide the Election

When the Supreme Court rules on ObamaCare, it will define Barack Obama as either a winner or loser. James Carville says overturning ObamaCare would be the best thing that could happen to Democrats.

Here’s a sample of the left’s reaction to Verrilli’s performance: Mother Jones: Solicitor General Donald B.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Crappy Argument In Support of ObamaCare

I’m often amazed at the weakness of arguments before the Supreme Court. Today, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, attempting to help out the Obama Administration’s fumbling solicitor-general, made the weakest argument I’ve ever heard. First,Ginsburg statement: Mr. Verrilli, I thought that your main point is that, unlike food or any other   market, when you made the choice …

How Herbert Hoover Launched Cardinal Nation

The St. Louis Cardinals were the major league team farthest west and farthest south until the 1950s.  But that’s not the only reason the Redbirds built a massive flock of fans from the Alleghenies to the Rockies, and from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico.

Michael Patrick Leahy, among a very small group of patriots who hatched the first round of Tea Parties in February 2009, documents the US Government’s 230 year history of Constitutional infidelity. My full review will be finished soon, but don’t wait: buy Covenant …
