Liberty Candidate for Re-Election


I wanted to ask that anyone who can help support a liberty minded candidate who is up for re-election for Borough Council then check out a Dale Kerns Jr. He is a man with integrity and someone who actually stands up for principle.

If You Love Freedom, You Should Oppose Right-To-Work

Conservatives are cheering the passage of the Michigan "Right-to-Work" laws.  They think, finally, we have given the progressives a black eye in the heart of liberal-progressive-union controlled territory.  If you think this, you should really go read the law, and then consider these points:

I am certainly no supporter of Unions.  But I am a bigger opponent of unjust government force.

It is true that Unions have taken hold of government, and gotten unjust…

The Curse of the Magic Sword

The Curse of the Magic Sword

A Metaphor

How to recognize the force that is destroying us.

August, 2012

I enjoy tales of fantasy and adventure as much as anybody – wizards, dragons, and magic swords make for great stories. But, magic isn't real, is it? There are no spells or curses in real…

Supreme Court Proves its Irrelevance

In 1802, in Marbury vs. Madison, the Supreme Court siezed the power to uphold Acts of Congress, effectively ruling them as being within the bounds of the Constitution.  In so doing, they set their own fate, and the fate of this country.

The power to uphold a law ultimately means that the Supreme Court gets to decide which of our Individual Freedoms are Rights, and which are not.  If a group is opposed to any right, be it free speech, religion, the right to enter contracts or not…

HHS Mandate - Correspondance with Senator Casey

Senator Casey’s lukewarm reply is below.  My response to his response is this:


Senator Casey - First of all, thank you for your thoughtful reply to my letter to you about the unconstitutional HHS mandate that employers and/or insurers should be compelled to pay for contraception or abortifacients. As a Catholic and an employer of 35 people with families, please know that after reviewing the issue and praying on it - I support my church leaders and I cannot and will not comply…

HHS Edict Will Force Catholics to Violate Conscience - educate those around you!



It is not often that I find it necessary to write to you about pressing public issues.  Today is different.  I am not sure if you have heard of this or not, but the US Catholic Bishops are taking a very strong stand against the Obama administration’s Health and Human Services rules related to Obama Care.  Specifically, this past week HHS announced that all health care plans offered in the USA will be required to provide “free” coverage for abortion,…

HHS Mandate - Letters to our Senators

30 Jan 2012:

Support Respect for Rights of Conscience Act

As the owner of a company that employs 35 people, and as a Catholic, HHS's reaffirmation that virtually all private health care plans must cover sterilization, abortifacients, and contraception, means that our government is purposely putting me in the position of having to choose between doing something I know to be wrong and providing healthcare coverage for my employees.

No government should ever have the…

An Argument Against Pre-Primary Endorsements

Dear Republican State Committee,

You are on the verge of gathering to decide whether the State Committee should endorse Primary Election candidates, or not. I am writing to point out why you should not endorse a candidate before the Primary Election.


A party endorsement is a powerful thing. The endorsement itself gives a candidate an advantage in the election, as many Republicans are…

Mark R. Brady – Surgery and Prayer Story – Hospital Stay – Post-Op Home – Conclusion
