  • An Open Letter to Donald Trump

    Michael Brown

    Like millions of Americans, I am intrigued with your meteoric rise to the top of the polls. You have truly captured the imagination of this nation.

  • Slavery, Hitler and Planned Parenthood

    Ken Connor

    Human beings have always had an extraordinary capacity for self-delusion. We justify horrible things by telling ourselves that we are acting in the service of a noble cause, or by dehumanizing the victims of our unjust actions.

  • Will We Survive the Obama Presidency and the Iranian Bomb?

    Barack Obama

    When, in 2012, I authored a cautionary tale about the dangers of a nuclear Iran, I never imagined a U.S. president who would, just a few years later, actively try to strengthen Iran's geopolitical and financial position while providing international legitimacy to the Iranian nuclear program. But sometimes truth is scarier than fiction.

  • Environmental Protection Agency Does More Harm Than Good

    Susan Stamper Brown

    Like the road to Hell, liberal ideas are usually paved with good intentions. But, as Ronald Reagan once said, "The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn't so." And all that vast un-knowledge births monster government agencies like the EPA, which end up doing more harm than good.

  • God First, Then Country

    Have you heard about the Baptist pastors in Shelby, North Carolina, who have raised the Christian flag above the American flag at their local churches? The pastors explain that our ultimate allegiance is to God, not government or country. One of the churches has launched a website (GodBeforeGovernment.org).

  • Time for the Confederate Flag to Be Retired

    The tragic events of recent days have once again focused the emotions of much of the nation on the Confederate flag and what it stands for and what it does not. I understand that for many people the Confederate flag stands for history, heritage, and the bravery and courage of their ancestors. However, the flag has been despoiled and sullied by the KKK and other white supremacists who have cloaked their evil deeds and beliefs with the "Stars and Bars."
