Less than a week ago it was discovered that Miguel Southwell, the general manager of the most heavily traveled airport in the world, Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, signaled it is his intent, unless drastic changes are made in the TSA in Atlanta in the next two months, to become a member of the TSA’s Screening Partnership Program, thereby privatizing airport security in Atlanta. You’re unlikely to hear any great fanfare about this in the media, though in my opinion it should warrant more attention, especially for those of us, and we are by far the majority, who think TSA is a failure and needs to be completely reformed, if not outright abolished.

The Socialists In America Are Really Just Mad At Socialism…And They Just Don’t Know It

socialism091914-628x356

We’ve all heard the line by President Obama, the whole of the media, and the Democrat Party, that the last 7 years have been a great success, how Obama’s policies have pulled us from the economic cliff caused by deregulatory conservative policy, that we simply need to add to it, and that we dare not turn back now. The soundest rebuke to that nonsense is this years presidential primary. If it were really true that things were going well in this country, and we just need to stay on the course Barack Obama has set us on, we wouldn’t be seeing the rise and embrace of an open socialist in the Democratic Party, proposing vast changes to the “economic establishment” of both political parties, and → Read More

“Democratic” Socialism Is A Fantasy

bernie

Contrary to the word-play, democracy and socialism, as defined, are actually polar opposites. The phrase “democratic socialism” is an oxymoron. Its a phrase that is contradictory, like a “loud whisper” or “true lies”. Real socialism and real democracy are ultimately incompatible. The sole intent of that phrase, democratic socialism, is the sale of the socialistic system from within a Democratic system, and nothing more.

Said another way, no, Sweden and many of the other Western European countries Bernie points to as more enlightened than us are not democratically socialist states, even if they call themselves that. And no, Bernie Sanders is also not a democratic socialist, even if he calls himself that. He’s just a socialist. And those other Western powers? Well, they’re on their → Read More

Constitution 101: Who Knows Their 11th Amendment?

scday3b_11151367

So who here knows what the 11th Amendment states? If you asked Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump or most other politicians for that matter, its pretty unlikely any of them would know what it is. Its not just politicians who wouldn’t know what the 11th Amendment says. Most of the American people also probably wouldn’t know what it says either, that is, without first conducting a google search.

I’m not bashing people who don’t know what the 11th Amendment says, but it is unfortunate that most people don’t know what it says, or why it says what it does. As I will try and demonstrate in the following brief article, it has implications having to do with the proper place of the Supreme Court in → Read More

ISIS - Reagan's Words Regarding Peace And War

reagan-a-time-for-choosing

Considering all the instability happening on the world scene these days, specifically the spread of Islamic radicals like ISIS, I thought I’d draw a video from my video’s section at mattsamerica.wordpress.com and post it here to show what Reagan’s general thoughts were about peace and war. Obviously he was for peace. But not “peace” at any price. I think his words might shed some light on the apparent choice of whether to actively fight or simply appease our enemies via “containment” for example.

The following is from Reagan’s famous “A Time For Choosing” speech when he stumped for Barry Goldwater’s election for president: (click on story to show video link)

Article V Of The Constitution. The Final Straw? Part II

artivleVnew

For those unfamiliar with Article V of the Constitution, and the second yet to be used method of amending the Constitution, via a convention of states, I invite you to refer to conventionofstates.com or my previous article on this subject. My reason for writing Part II is having written on this subject initially, I didn’t anticipate the degree to which many good, like-minded conservatives had a degree of apprehension toward utilizing this method of amendment. I truly believe in this cause, I hope to address some of those concerns in this article, and to respectfully explain why I have come to fully support an Article V convention of the states as the only solution as big as our current problems.

As stated, many good people → Read More

The ‘’Insiders” at War With the “Silent Majority” – They are Trying to Ambush Americans

download (1)

Oops. I just received a news flash from the Liberal camp that we no longer can refer to the middle class as “hard-working citizens.” Not being fond of the politically correct era – I say the last time I checked our Constitution I still have the freedom and the right to express my opinion. So here goes.

The middle class, the hard-working citizens are the glue holding our Nation together. They are the ones who pay the Washington Cartel their exorbitant wages for brief time working on our clock. The most of the Cartel’s time, which we pay for is sitting on their duffs under a palm tree on some gorgeous island while we’re working our butts off 24/7.

The middle class → Read More
