The Spoiled Brats Occupying Wall Street!

Oct 23, 2011 — Ron Ewart

What blind suckers many Americans have become in thinking that government will be their champion.  In a free society the only defense is the strength, knowledge and experience of the individual who will use that strength against all forces that would attempt to take away their life, their liberty, their property and their pursuit of happiness.  Circling around all Americans today are the political and special interest vultures that get their kicks out of herding and manipulating the masses for their own gain.

Money and Guns -The Tools of Absolute Power

Oct 16, 2011 — Ron Ewart

“The only safeguard to protect the American people from government’s control over the money and the guns is the U. S. Constitution.  The only protection the Constitution has from government corruption or perversion, is the people demanding that the government adhere to the principles of the constitution or face the consequences of armed revolution.”   Ron Ewart

Americans Get Stronger When The Odds Are Against Them!

Oct 9, 2011 — Ron Ewart

That’s right, you weren’t paying attention and the evil ones slipped in the back door and took over.  But is that any reason to throw your hands in the air and say, “..... what’s the use, we’re licked”?

A Rising Liberal Bureaucratic Nightmare!

Oct 2, 2011 — Ron Ewart

“Every revolution evaporates and leaves behind only the slime of a new bureaucracy.”  Franz Kafka a culturally influential German-language novelist

Article I, Section 1 of the U. S. Constitution says that: “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”

The Tea Party Tsunami Is Crushing Liberals!

Sep 3, 2011 — Ron Ewart

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”  Thomas Jefferson

Talk about paranoia, the left is coming unhinged.  Ninety nine (99%) percent of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) (Allen West being the sole holdout and threatening to quit the CBC) is so petrified by the Tea Party movement in this country, that they are resorting to reverse racism and inflaming rhetoric.

Cheap, Clean, Limitless Energy May be Mankind’s Only Salvation!

Aug 29, 2011 — Ron Ewart

There is probably no one alive today who can remember life without electricity and yet 98% of man’s rise out of dark sub-Sahara Africa was without this form of work-saving energy.  The only forms of energy to do work that were available to mankind prior to the American Revolutionary War, was the power of the wind, water power, horse power and man power.

What Price Individual Liberty?

Jul 14, 2011 — Ron Ewart

“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains or slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take but as for me; give me liberty or give me death!”—Patrick Henry

For almost the entire existence of the American Republic, courts have tried to put a price on a life that was snuffed out early, or rendered permanently disabled, due to the negligence or criminal act of another.  In some cases, it is merely a matter of arithmetic ..... how much was the person earning at the time of his death or disability, then multiplied times the life expectancy of that person.

Obama, You Leave Me No Choice!

Jul 10, 2011 — Ron Ewart

“There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.”   John Quincy Adams

It has been stated with certainty, and history has confirmed, that America is a nation of laws and not of men.  It was purposely designed that way by the Framers of our Constitution to protect individual liberty.  Millions of brave men and women have paid the ultimate price to maintain that legacy.  But oh how times do change when the people aren’t paying attention.

George Sutherland, Associate Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court wrote:  “To give a man his life, but deny him his liberty, is to take from him all that makes his life worth living. To give him his liberty, but take from him the property which is the fruit and badge of his liberty, is to still leave him a slave.”

A Reflection on Independence Day

Jul 4, 2011 — Ron Ewart

John Andre’, aide de camp to General Henry Clinton, slid out of bed and while he hurriedly put on his clothes said, “we were told you wouldn’t be back for another week”.  I responded with, “and who told you that”.  He started to say “Mrs. Clint….” but then trailed off as if he had just let the cat out of the bag.  Mrs. Clinton, General Clinton’s wife, was somewhat aware of my comings and goings as a British general and so it is quite possible she mislead Andre’, since there was no way she could have known I was going to return early, after accepting General Washington’s assignment.

The Question Is Often Asked, What Would I Do If I Were President?

Jul 1, 2011 — Ron Ewart

“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”  ~ Abraham Lincoln

Some of us wonder what we would do if we were given the power to lead others?  No one can know for sure until leadership is thrust upon them by circumstance, or sought out by riding a wave of ambition.  But to lead a nation is a far cry from leading a band, or a small town, or even a corporation.  To lead a nation you must have a clear vision of the true character of that nation.

The Assignment

Jun 26, 2011 — Ron Ewart

I could tell that Washington was almost euphoric that I had agreed to spy for him.  He had other reasons to be encouraged as well.  His troops had emerged from the Hell of the winter at Valley Forge.  Their supply lines were open, their supplies had increased, his troops were now well fed and clothed and Baron Von Steuben had done an excellent job of training Washington’s irregulars into a cohesive and capable fighting force.

America’s Life-Threatening Disease - Liberalpox!

Jun 22, 2011 — Ron Ewart

“When a lot of remedies are suggested for a disease, that means it can’t be cured”  Anton Chekhov -  Russian Playwright

Liberalpox is not a disease of the flesh, it is a disease of the mind.  It affects the centers of the brain that control common sense, logic and objectivity and it distorts the inputs from the five senses.  It forces the infected person to refute the laws of physics, chemistry and economics.  To the diseased person, up is down, right is left, night is day and hot is cold.

The Jeffington Files

Jun 19, 2011 — Ron Ewart

My name is General Canwell Jeffington, special covert military attaché to General George Washington during America’s Revolutionary War.  I operated outside of General Washington’s secret Culper Ring as a rogue spy for Washington and my knowledge of those events is second to none.  Much of what I know was never recorded in the history books.  I can no longer take what is happening to my America and I have been summoned by the angels of providence to re-visit the courage and sacrifices of those days and use them to inspire hope in those now-living Americans who are rapidly awakening to what their long-term apathy and indifference to rising government tyranny has wrought.

Have the ‘Supremes’ Gone Plumb Loco?

Jun 11, 2011 — Ron Ewart

“The law is not the private property of lawyers, nor is justice the exclusive province of judges and juries. In the final analysis, true justice is not a matter of courts and law books, but of a commitment in each of us to liberty and mutual respect.”— (John Marshall, Chief Justice, U. S. Supreme Court 1801 to 1834)

The Unshakeable Reality - Begging For A Solution!

Jun 6, 2011 — Ron Ewart

It took over 150 years for the colonials to be done with England and it took a revolutionary war to undo the “system” England put in place.  Almost every day we keep asking, how do we unravel the complex, complicated and convoluted American “system” that has evolved over the last 80 to 100 years, that affects every aspect of our daily lives?  Think of all the social and environmental laws that have been passed in the last 80 years.  Think of the Supreme Court decisions, federal and state, that fly in the face of literal constitutional interpretations.

Robbing the Bank - Too Many Times!

May 5, 2011 — Ron Ewart

“Any time three Washington DC politicians get into a cab with the President of the United States and without an argument between them, the public treasury has just been robbed.”  —A slight modification of a Phyllis Diller quote.

Obama Dithers While the Earth Trembles

Mar 17, 2011 — Ron Ewart

image“When the earth shudders, puny man can only get out of its way if he hopes to survive.  If he builds where the earth moves, or spits lava from its fiery orifices, or he plants his footprint where the ocean rises and falls, he can only expect to be swallowed up, burned alive, or drowned en masse.  We have much more to fear from an unstable earth than we do from man-caused global warming.”— Ron Ewart

The mark of a true leader is one who makes rapid decisions when events are unfolding for which there was no plan.  It is more than evident that Obama is out of his element and is incapable of making the necessary decisions to protect American interests, much less foster an agenda that is in keeping with American sovereignty and values of individual freedom and liberty.  While Rome burns, Obama is giving speeches, predicting basketball scores and golfing.  The words that come to mind are “apathetic”, “detached” and “pathetic”.  If anyone was truly looking, his poll numbers should be falling like a rock if it wasn’t for a news media that no longer prints the truth.

America’s Self-Fulfilling Prophecy!

Mar 13, 2011 — Ron Ewart

Many governments, including the American government, have learned the tricks of the Burmese monkey trapper, or so it would seem.  The monkey trapper hollows out a coconut and then puts nuts inside the cavity.  He then chains the coconut to a tree.  Along comes a monkey who sticks his hand in the coconut and closes his fist around the nuts.  With the nuts firmly in his grasp, his fist will not come back out of the coconut and he’s stuck there, as in a trap.  Alas, the monkey isn’t very smart and he holds onto the nuts and won’t let go.  Along comes the monkey trapper and throws the hapless monkey in a cage for a trip to some zoo, or a dinner table.

Let’s All Bow Down To The Omnipotent Government!

Mar 10, 2011 — Ron Ewart

“What”, you say?  You aren’t going to bow down to anybody!  Really.  We hate to be the one to inform you, but you are too late!  You already have bowed down and you have been showing your posterior to the government every minute, every hour, every day, every week, every month and every year, for more than a century.  You just don’t know that you are doing it.  That is because you don’t know the “blueprint for freedom” and you also don’t know that the government has been savaging that blueprint since the ink was barely dry on the Constitution.  Why has government been breaking the rules?  To gain more power over the masses until they hold absolute power.  That’s what governments do, unless they are held in check by limits and by the people.  When push comes to shove, in their distorted minds, you are dumb and ignorant and you don’t deserve to rule yourself.  Smarter people than you know what is best for you and by God they will shove it down your throat no matter how loud you scream.

You Lookin’ For Justice In The Courts?

Mar 4, 2011 — Ron Ewart

“Corn can’t expect justice from a court composed of chickens.”  ~ African Proverb

We attended a meeting of property rights folks last night, where a discussion ensued about why property owners facing land use code violations, can’t get a jury trial.
