Memorial Day

Thousands of patriots in countless battles willingly gave their lives for the cause of liberty and the defense of our Constitution. While our rights to life and liberty are endowed by God, securing them has fallen to men called into battle against forces intent on destroying the glorious American experiment.

Let us endeavor to make the very most of their sacrifice.

William F. Buckley Jr. – RIP

We have lost one of the most eloquent defenders of the conservative movement and the cause of liberty. William F. Buckley Jr., founder of National Review, died last night at his home in Stamford, Connecticut. May he rest in peace.

Happy Birthday, Mr. Reagan!

February 6 would have been Ronald Reagan’s 97th birthday. In celebration, I hope you’ll watch his landmark "A Time For Choosing" speech from 1964, in which he endorsed Barry Goldwater.
