What Was Revolutionary About the American Revolution?

By Allen Guelzo

Everyone knows the basics of the American Revolution: thirteen North American colonies revolted against British rule and won their independence. But there’s much more to the story: the American Revolution, of all revolutions, was a game-changer for the entire world. How so? And most importantly, why? Renowned historian Allen Guelzo explains.

Are Democrats Declaring WAR on the United States

[This item was even more inflammatory before I edited it. I re-blog it only to show that a breaking point may be too close for comfort. -Bob]

By Robert McClain – Re-Blogged From iPatriot

I know the Democrats do not like the comparison (who would?) but they are doing exactly what their ancestors did over a century and a half ago.

What happened to the congressman in Alexandria is similar to the assaults on Republican legislators just prior to the outbreak of war that required the new, duly elected president to fire 3/4 of the federal government because of Democrat leaks and sabotage, and to raise an army to invade his own country.

Climate and Popular Revolution

By Dr. Tim Ball – Re-Blogged From http://www.WattsUpWithThat.com

My major research interest in climatology is historical climate, but particularly the impact of climate and climate change on human history and the human condition. Climatology was always part of geography because it studies the climate of a region and the change over time. This was subsumed by the growth of climate science in which specialists studied individual pieces of the complex puzzle that are climate, usually without knowing where the piece fit. Geography and Climatology are integrative disciplines that are defined as chorology,

By Thomas DiLorenzo – Re-Blogged From LewRockwell.com

In his great classic, Socialism, Ludwig von Mises observed that socialists always employed the dual strategy of 1) nationalizing as much industry and property as possible; and 2) “destructionism,” defined as “destroying the social order which is based on private ownership.”  Destructionism can be achieved through the welfare state, progressive taxation, onerous taxation, and regulation and regimentation of private industry.  It is a form of economic sabotage.

There is also a third necessity in order for socialists to achieve their goal of a government “planned” society:  the centralization of power and the elimination of all possible exits. As Mises wrote in another of his classics, Omnipotent Government, “[T]he adversaries of the trend toward more government control describe their opposition as a fight against . . . centralization.  It is conceived as a contest of states’ rights versus the central power.”  This, of course, is what the “Brexit” vote in Great Britain was all about.
