Supreme Court Upholds Bill Of Rights In 5-4 Decision

November 14, 2008 | Issue 44•46
WASHINGTON—In a landmark decision Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court narrowly ruled to uphold the Bill of Rights, the very tenets upon which American society is based. "After carefully considering the relevance of the 10 inviolable rights that comprise the ideological foundation on which our nation is built, the court finds that these basic freedoms remain important for the time being, and should not be overturned," read the majority opinion authored by Justice Anthony Kennedy, who cast the tie-breaking vote. "Until such time as it can be definitively proven that citizens no longer require the protections provided by the Bill of Rights, it shall remain the principal legal guidance for the United States of America." The Supreme Court's latest decision comes on the heels of last month's 6-3 ruling to abolish the pursuit of happiness from the three inalienable rights guaranteed by the Declaration of Independence.

It's Decision Time

Monday, November 03, 2008

It's time, once again, to cast our votes. The question was asked, "Why are you voting for the person you're for?" Here's my answer...
I believe the government's job is to provide society protection from invaders. I believe its job is to secure our borders. I believe its job is to coin money and regulate its value. I believe government's job is make laws which are proper and just and constitutional. I believe its job... I could go on, but you get the point. I have a certain understanding of what out government's job is and now the question before me is, "Is there a candidate that has the same understanding of what government's job is?"

Hmmm... McCain? On some points, yes. Not all, though. Obama, same thing. On down the list I go. Ron Paul (even though he's no longer listed on  my ballot), yes. Too bad he got washed out be the machine. But, wait! Who's this? Chuck Baldwin. The Constitution Party's candidate. A little too religious for me, but at least I know he's got a moral compass. And his beliefs of what our government's job is matches almost exactly with mine. Hell ya! I think I found my candidate.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how it's done. Vote for the candidate that intends to use your government in the way you think it's meant to be used. Remember, government is just a tool. How it's used is up to you.
