Why Ron Paul Still Matters

Ron Paul
I have a confession to make: I haven’t always been a Libertarian. While I had always considered myself a “small-l” libertarian, the truth is there was one requirement to join the Libertarian Party that, for years, I just couldn’t quite fully embrace; the Non-Aggression Principle. Now don’t get me wrong, I have never been the type to start a fight,...

Who is Alfie Evans?

I’d like to introduce you to Alfie Evans. A child that had struggled with epileptic episodes, he was delayed in his developmental milestones early in his life.

Not only did the government fail to provide an adequate level of safety, but public officials were commonly involved in criminal activity themselves. During...

Did North Korea Agree To Denuclearization?

North Korea
South and North Korea have opened a line of diplomatic communications between the nations’ leaders, just one among many unexpected efforts by North Korean leadership to lessen tensions on the peninsula. The two Koreas have remained in a state of an uneasy cease-fire since the end of their civil war in 1953.   Not only did Moon Jae-in and Kim...

The Constitutionality of War: Who Really has the Authority to Send American Troops into Harm’s Way?

Syrian Civil War
Following President Trump’s decision to lob missiles into yet another sovereign nation that hasn’t attacked us, talk has turned again to the legality of a President unilaterally deciding to use American military might around the world. In a not so stunning role reversal from similar strikes during the Obama administration, many Democrats (and even some Republicans) have come out in...

Books and Education
