Getting President Trump impeached may give Democrats short-term victory. But by infuriating rural voters, it’s sure to widen the schism between our ‘two Americas.’
It will take more than walls and jobs to ‘make America great again.’ We need to return to the philosophies that undergirded the American founding.
What began as a mere afterthought to the Constitution ended up saving the Constitution from its Anti-Federalist critics, and today looms larger in the American mind than the Constitution itself.
Today is Constitution Day. Here’s what the Founders’ path to writing the Constitution can teach us about how to accomplish our typically much humbler pursuits.
An executive that does not need to ask the legislature for funds is one that does not need to ask the people for permission or respond to their concerns. Self-funding is self-rule.
A democracy without knowledge corrodes our republic. And that’s exactly how politicians like it.
Donald Trump’s anti-intellectual populism shows why Republicans shouldn’t try to be the party of the regular guys against the eggheads.
Call it logrolling, call it cronyism—the important point is that omnibus legislation such as the recently passed spending and tax bills is bad for America.
Saying government can tax religious organizations affirms the sovereignty of state over church.
Donald Trump appeals to the fantasy that one man can deliver a faction’s whole agenda. But that’s exactly what the Constitution is designed to prevent.
Nearly every other GOP candidate has expressed views more imperial than Donald Trump’s—but is that a good thing?
A regime that seeks “equality for all and special favors for none” may leave many challenges, but America is up to them.
The structural limitations of the Constitution have all disappeared, swallowed up by ideas like “commerce,” “general welfare,” and “necessary and proper.”
To say that the Supreme Court is the final arbiter of the U.S. Constitution overthrows constitutionalism itself
The GOP often concedes too much to the courts–a notion of judicial supremacy at odds with the best of the Republican Party’s history.
Roe v. Wade is no ordinary case of judicial activism. The Court landed on the wrong side of the first principle of justice: “all men are created equal.”
President Obama is ready to ‘get stuff done.’ How presidential.
A new report on civics shows Americans know less than ever about their government. Here’s what some people are doing to help.
Concerned citizens cannot allow the unelected, unaccountable College Board to force a biased course with a clear political agenda into American classrooms.
The real lesson is that while most people are worried about the Supreme Court lower courts can be just as important.
