Recent Essays & Commentary

By Thomas Lee Abshier, ND

08/27/2011 Slander of the Founders:  A movie pretending on its cover to be about the Faith of the Founders, uses scant evidence that they were not Christians, in the face of a mountain of evidence of their faith in Christ.\

08/26/2011 A Republican Sinner: A man running for office as a conservative is found to have consorted with, and attended the performances of, a stripper.  The True question is whether he has repented of, and now condemns, such behavior for self and others.

08/13/2011 Liberty as Sacrosanct: The Libertarian holds that the State should never use force against a man who makes bad moral choices that harm only himself.  But, no moral error harms only that man.  We are connected by the web of society, and we thrive best when all strive toward Godliness.

6/1/2011 Printing Money: “What is Money?”  By linking the issuance of new money into the economy with the contract to produce new value for consumption, the money supply expands without inflation.  Prosperity follows hard work, Righteous Law, appropriately limited Federal, State, and Local governments, and a Godly people.

5/25/2011 Islam is a Theocracy where the government is an extension and expression of the religion.  In an examination of the various governmental structures on the spectrum of Statist-Authoritarian to Libertine-Free systems, the Righteous Republic is placed at the center of the spectrum.  The greatest Liberty comes when the people give authority to God to work through government, in a society where each man is committed to exercising personal righteousness, while holding the group accountable to the standard of Godliness.

5/10/2011 Unions and Wages; Unions have distorted the balance between prices, wages, profits, and employment.  Restore the limits of Federal government by enforcing the 9th, 10th, and 11th Amendments.  Return to the State and County governments the authority to enact social, economic, and moral legislation.  

4/30/2011 Is Conservatism motivated by Racism?  The Left has used slander as a tool of ideological assassination, smearing all who oppose their agenda with the ultimate epithet.

04/29/2011 Is Limited Government Possible?  Libertarianism adopts the extreme position of eliminating all government in favor of a total market based solution.  The Libertarian fervor to eliminate government, rather than tame it, has the elements of a religious tenet.

04/26/2011 Libertarianism takes credit for abolition, the franchise, and freedom of speech; but ignores the social fallout of liberty without Godly self-restraint

04/15/2011 Social Security, exposing the fraudulent presentation, consideration of the meaning of wealth, and the morality of the “Inequality of the distribution of wealth”.

04/11/2011 Supreme Court Worship; Idolatry of the Court’s opinion violates the Commandment “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”
