Justices Sotomayer and Kagan Want Hobby Lobby to Pay the Tax?

March 26, 2014 0 Comments

If the ACA’s goal is to provide all Americans access to health insurance, why would Justices Kagan and Sotomayor see the solution to Hobby Lobby’s problem as simply to not provide health insurance to its employees and instead pay the tax?

Liz Cheney Drops Out of WY Senate Race

January 6, 2014 0 Comments

Liz-CheneyThe rumor has it that Liz Cheney is dropping her bid for Mike Enzi’s Wyoming Senate seat. I am happy to hear this. Mike Enzi is a great conservative who has been unfairly targeted by Ms. Cheney.

I also doubt that Liz Cheney is a conservative. Sure she would be a firebrand for many conservative causes, but at the end of the day, I bet she would promote big government. Her family has been part of the Washington Establishment for decades (no disrespect to Vice President Cheney whom I think is a very good man).

Amnesty and Obamacare

December 28, 2013 0 Comments

The Last Refuge is right on the money on why the Chamber of Commerce is fighting the Tea Party. American Big Business wants amnesty and Obamacare.

Big Business loves the idea of amnesty for illegal immigrants. Many big businesses use illegal immigrant labor (mostly through contracting with smaller contractors). By increasing passing amnesty legislation, labor costs will plummet. This is not good for workers.

Big business also likes Obamacare. The insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies love it: after all, they wrote the legislation. The rest of Big Business loves being able to stop providing health insurance to their employees. Health insurance keep going up and Big Business can’t control these costs.

Americans must stop both of these initiatives.

General George Washington Resigning His Commission: Great Works of American Conservatism

John Trumbull, one of America’s greatest painters, painted the masterpiece above. Trumbull understood the significance of the moment captured forever on this canvas, and today this masterpiece hangs in the Rotunda of Congress as a symbol of America’s devotion to civilian control over the military.

The Great Works of American Conservatism series highlights the writings, speeches, and art that have had the most influence on American Conservatism from its inception through the present. John Trumbull’s General George Washington Resigning His Commission is certainly one of these Great Works of American Conservatism.

In a future post, I will discuss the significance of General Washington’s resignation and the speech he gave that day, but for now let’s admire the painting for its own worth. Trumbull captures the solemnity of General Washington’s resignation of his military commission to the Continental Congress sitting in Annapolis, Maryland on December 23, 1783. The revolutionary war was won, America gained its independence from Great Britain after nine devastating years of war, and General Washington was the most powerful man in America.

George Washington could have chosen a much different path. He could have been the King of the United States of America; the people probably would have been happy to coronate him immediately. But instead, Washington had a vision of a republican America. A vision where free men and women had the power to elect their own representatives. Trumbull’s painting memorializes the day that America proved to the world that a military hero could relinquish power in the name of liberty.
