Have you seen the latest virtue-signaling craze? The yard sign that reads: “In this house, we believe: Black Lives Matter; No Human is Illegal; Love is Love; Women’s Rights Are Human Rights; Science is Real; Water is Life; Injustice Anywhere Is a Threat to Justice Everywhere."

In this episode we unpack this type of semantically overloaded political sloganeering and ask quite a few relevant questions.

If you asked 100 people if they think America is healthy culturally, financially, spiritually, educationally, racially, or constitutionally, I am willing to bet a large majority would respond in the negative.

America is broken and the only thing that can save it (from itself) is state secession.

In this episode I build the case for secession:

  • The reasons it is necessary
  • Why secession is good
  • Refute most of the common objections to secession
  • Address how it could be accomplished in the 21st century

Please comment below and help build the secession movement.

Despite the fact that April 2020 was dominated by the Coronavirus - shelter-in-place orders, social distancing, mask-wearing, economy-killing, stimulus spending and daily news conferences with the White House Coronavirus task force, there were a number of other noteworthy news items.

In Episode #87, I introduced you to the concept of secession. We reviewed current and past secession movements and offered three reasons it is necessary AND good - decentralization, self-determination and competition. In this episode, I discuss the fourth reason secession is desirable - the idea that smaller is better. After that, we will discuss how secession is justified and dispel the most common objections to the concept of secession.

The “S” word - secession - seems to be brought up with more and more frequency lately. Most recently we have seen counties in rural Virginia exploring the possibility of seceding from the state and joining West Virginia. We are seeing similar movements in Northern California and rural counties in Oregon. While those are wonderful developments, the larger question regarding secession is the idea of entire states seceding from the United States and essentially establish their own nation.

The idea of state secession picks up steam with every passing year as the federal government - the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches AND the federal bureaucracy - continues to enlarge its power base well beyond its enumerated powers in the Constitution.

In this episode, I will introduce you to the concept of secession, discuss some of the current and past secession movements and walk you through three reasons why secession is not only desirable but necessary. In Episode #88 we will discuss how secession is justified and rebut most of the arguments against it.

What does the spectacle known as the State of the Union Address reveal?

In the first part of this episode, we examine President Trump's 2020 State of the Union Address through the eyes of someone who has been off the grid for several decades - an unbiased, casual observer. What did he notice? What were his impressions? What questions did he have?

The last part of the episode is an assessment of what the SOTU address reveals about the state of our nation, the state of our federal government and the state of the Constitution.

I don't know about you but sometimes I get tired of discussing all the areas where we disagree politically or on public policy issues. In this episode I attempt to focus on things that most of us agree on such as government spending, right-to-try laws, the surveillance state, sound money, war, tort reform, term limits, the War on Drugs and the War on Poverty.

Does it not make sense to first focus on the few things in which we agree and then circle back to the numerous head-butting issues that divide us?

Recently the Supreme Court issued an opinion regarding the Trump Administration’s effort to put a citizenship question on the 2020 census. We've been told by leading Democrats that the inclusion of the question is an effort to marginalize minorities, scare immigrants and, as Nancy Pelosi said, “making America white again.”

But what is the truth (and history) of this question and the census?

It seems like, in order to be a national Democrat in good standing, you must invoke the battle cry "Trump is keeping immigrant children in cages at the border!"

In this episode, we examine the truth of this statement.
