Is Secession in the United States a Good Idea?

In a word…no. Of course, there’s a lot more to consider than just a gut instinct and I wouldn’t be much of a blogger if I just put something out there without at least putting forth some kind of logical context for the opinion. However, sometimes you have to lead with your answer rather than…More

The Dangers of Indiscriminate Immigration

https://anchor.fm/gunthrek/embed/episodes/The-Dangers-of-Indiscriminate-Immigration-e153777 If you follow the news at all, you’ve likely heard the debate regarding our federal government’s policies regarding immigration across our southern border. If not, the situation is fairly clear: there really isn’t a southern border anymore. Sure, they put on a show of having guards out there, but it’s been shown over and…More

Progressive Cowardice

By the time this article is published, the situation will likely have been resolved, but most of us are aware of the situation in Texas where Democratic legislators “fled” the state to avoid an upcoming vote on a bill enforcing voter identification for elections. Any sane person would realize that requiring someone to prove they…More

Political Posturing on a Global Scale

I find it interesting sometimes to follow the politics of other countries. While I don’t spend a great deal of time worrying about what other nations decide to do most of the time, partly because very little of what they do has any real effect on our lives over here, there are some events that…More

Revolution is NOT a Good Thing

Nations across the globe who traditionally fear our wrath no longer have any reason to tread lightly. Our President constantly fumbles through his public appearances, making wild…More

Freedom and Big Government Are Not Opposites

In some circles, the phrase “big government” is very much like swearing. It is spoken with contempt and hatred as we consider the possible outcomes that a powerful, overarching government can be capable of. As we look back through history, we can see the real world examples of how big government can wreak havoc and…More

Humans Love a Good Fight

It doesn’t matter what the reasons are. There could be really good reasons for it or really bad reasons for it. Money, power, entertainment and myriad other possibilities can be used to justify it. Physical, mental, emotional or otherwise, we can’t ever seem to get away from it. When it comes to living in a…More

Ideology Versus Practicality

I’ve touched on this topic in the past, but I recently watched an interview on the Rubin Report that refocused my attention on the idea of how what we believe in isn’t always possible in the purest form. We all have ideas of what an ideal world would look like, and would be quite excited…More
