Lately, there have appeared some statements by certain church pastors extolling the ‘virtues’ of Socialism and claiming its endorsement in the Bible. Nor are they the only class of religious leaders who have been publicly and strongly advocating the Socialist way. Though this phenomenon has been very visible recently, it is hardly a new thing. Various portions of Christian church bodies have been enamored with and even actively practiced forms of Socialism in America more than 150 years ago.

The Left has always been a movement which sought power to obtain their warped view of the ‘greater good.’ Moreover, that view has always trended toward Socialism in one variety or another. Leftists search for power is through both cultural and political avenues. For the better portion of the last 60 years, the Left has used the public education system at all levels toward gaining influence and control in both.

Economics is not a ‘hard’ science in the same way as physics or mathematics. However, economics directly affects ordinary people more than most ‘hard’ sciences. That is seen whether one is discussing a wealthy nation, such as the United States, or an impoverished country in the third […]

Charlie Gard died Friday, July 28, 2017, after his life support was turned off while in hospice care in Great Britain. Actually, Charlie was forced to die because the government of a once-good nation said he must. That “once-good nation,” is the United Kingdom. That nation is now […]
The labels “alt-right” and “alt-left” get a large chunk of media play these days. The most notorious recent event highlighting the two groups was the protests in Charlottesville, Virginia. The violence pitted groups such as Antifa against the smaller contingent of KKK and White Supremacists and caused national outrage. Of the two groups, the “alt-left” Antifa has stolen the media show during recent times. The “alt-right” KKK is only famous recently […]
President Trump’s speech to the United Nations on September 19, 2017, has caused a bit of an uproar. Those on the left are upset that Trump basically called out the U.N. for its support of socialist states like Venezuela, among other items. His statement that Venezuela was in dire straights because “socialism was faithfully implemented” was met with long seconds of shocked and indignant silence. Yet Trump did all of this with […]
