In this episode we examine the American experiment through the lens of the Tenth Amendment which Thomas Jefferson called the foundation of the Constitution.

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

That means, the federal government is only authorized to do those few things that have been delegated to it. It is my contention that, if the federal government was still in its tiny, little sandbox created for it by the Constitution, this country would thrive. Unfortunately the federal leviathan has not only outgrown its sandbox but has taken over the entire yard, neighborhood, state, country!

The consequences of the overreach are largely unseen yet substantial. The corruption, the failure of one-size-fits-all policies, the influence peddling - all of it acts as a restraint on the American system of free markets, entrepreneurism, freedom and liberty. Instead we allow a handful of powerful people in D.C. and the media to divide us into a series of special interest groups who fight and bicker with each other. All the while the leviathan continues to grow and grow and grow with the only end in sight being the collapse of the U.S. dollar and the U.S. economy, which come to think of it, might have been the plan all along.

Joe Biden recently selected California Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate. You may be wondering why I would spend any time talking about someone who, if history is any guide, will be a footnote in the history books? Think Geraldine Ferraro, Dan Quayle, Lloyd Bentsen, Jack Kemp, Joe Lieberman, John Edwards, Paul Ryan and Tim Kayne.

The reason, of course, is because Joe Biden is not healthy. The likelihood of him serving out his term (if elected) is looking less likely by the day.

The other reason to spend time examining Kamala Harris is because the party-line about her from the left-wing media is that she is a pragmatic moderate and a wonderful role model for girls all over the globe. Is that the case or is she, as others have suggested, a manipulative, authoritarian, opportunist. You tell me what you think after listening to this episode.

In Episode #98, we focused on the most common myths about Lincoln. In this episode, we take a deeper look at the man, his motivations, his actions and consider what his true legacy should be. Specifically we examine how he destroyed states' rights, his dictatorial actions during the war, his real agenda and we make a strong case that he should have been charged as a war criminal had he lived.

When you think of Abe Lincoln what do you think? "Honest Abe?" A great orator? The Gettysburg Address? The five dollar bill? Mount Rushmore? He saved America? His assassination by John Wilkes Booth? His Zeus-like monument in Washington, D.C. He always ranks at or near the top of every list of “the greatest Presidents.”

But what is the truth about Abraham Lincoln?

If you pay the slightest bit of attention to the news – nationally or locally – you’ve likely noticed a movement to squash free speech. Sometimes it’s subtle such as a gentle reminder from your spouse not to bring up a particular topic at the family gathering lest you offend Uncle Pete. However, what is happening with more frequency is mass censorship of speech under the guise of calling it “hate speech.” 

What is the truth about hate speech?
