A Great Reset IS Needed

Part of the so-called “progressives” campaign clamor is to advocate for “The Great Reset” of society. I agree a reset of society is needed, but not in the form they prescribe. “No thanks” to a globalist agenda, riots and chaos, loss of private property and liberty, and a new equality of poverty and enslavement.

Open Letter to Governor Brad Little

Dear Governor Little: Our state has made it through winter. The grass is green, calves dot the landscape, the peas have sprouted in the garden, and birds are happily nesting. Instead of focusing on illness, death, and testing 2,000 people a month for COVID-19, isn’t it time to focus on love, laughter, and life? Butterflies […]

Rebuttal to Publius Huldah Article on COS Project

I am writing in response to the “Publius Huldah” (PH) article published by the Gem State Patriot on January 11, 2018.

Tax Day – Time to Amend the 16th Amendment

Tax Day is not an occasion Americans celebrate with picnics, presents, or parades. Yet we haven’t always had a Tax Day. The income tax was foisted upon us in 1913 by the generation that passed the 16th amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The 16th amendment states, “The Congress shall have power to lay and collect […]

Correcting the Centralized Government’s Tyranny over WE THE PEOPLE and the States

The last three years of a supposedly conservative, yet ineffective, Republican majority in Congress has made it abundantly evident that Congress will never rein in the power and scope of the federal government or end its wasteful spending. The U.S. Constitution provides a mechanism for the people, via the states, to impose restraint on the […]
