Hey Democrats: Now’s Your Chance to Get Rid of Eric Cantor

Hey Democrats: Now’s Your Chance to Get Rid of Eric Cantor

Let me get this out of the way first: I’m a Tea Party guy. I know—as a Democrat, you now have zero interest in what comes next (if you’re even still reading). But give me a chance to surprise you. I have what I think will be an interesting proposition for you as a faithful […]

Jesus’ Response to Income Inequality

Jesus’ Response to Income Inequality

President Obama and Democrats are talking about “income inequality” a lot these days, presumably setting up the 2014 midterm elections to hinge on that issue. “Republicans are mean, want you poor, and your kids to eat cat food.” Or something like that. Now, I’m not here to defend the Republicans (I’m not one anyway), but I […]

Can an Economics Professor Teach the House Majority Leader a Political Lesson?

Can an Economics Professor Teach the House Majority Leader a Political Lesson?

The Tea Party exists because of politicians like Eric Cantor. But now we have a chance to finally dispatch of the House Majority Leader, who has done little to stop the big-government steamroller in Washington—and has often been one of its drivers. Dr. Dave Brat—chairman of the Department of Economics and Business at Randolph-Macon College—aims […]

My Remarks to the Richmond GOP

My Remarks to the Richmond GOP

The Richmond, VA GOP was gracious enough to ask me to speak at their meeting on Tuesday, May 26th. Copied below is the text of the speech.* —- Obviously, I am a Christian. My faith drives everything I do. I do believe the Bible is the Word of God given directly to us. But I’m […]

A Few Quick Reasons Why I, as a Christian, Support Cuts to Federal Spending on “Charitable” Programs

A Few Quick Reasons Why I, as a Christian, Support Cuts to Federal Spending on “Charitable” Programs

I get a lot of comments on this website and my companion Facebook site, many of which I don’t respond to. Some are unreasonable and/or hateful and, thus, don’t require a response; and some I simply can’t get to, though I wish I could. I enjoy thoughtful and gracious dialogue on the critical issues facing […]

The First Presidential Debate: Now I WANT to Vote for Mitt Romney

The First Presidential Debate: Now I WANT to Vote for Mitt Romney

While I disagree with Mitt Romney on many things and vehemently opposed him during the Republican primary, I’ve maintained for months that he will not only win this year’s presidential election, but do so by a wide margin. And after he delivered an epic smack-down to a totally unprepared President Obama in last Wednesday’s debate, […]

A Challenge to Every Christian Leader in America

A Challenge to Every Christian Leader in America

I co-authored this piece with my friend and brother in Christ, Pastor Travis Witt. Check out Travis’s website here. —- On January 21, 1776, Reverend John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg preached his final sermon. He entered the pulpit as a pastor and exited the chancel as a colonel. Led by God and committed to biblical principles, […]

Film Review: “2016: Obama’s America”

Film Review: “2016: Obama’s America”

Dinesh D’Souza’s film 2016: Obama’s America came to my hometown of Richmond, VA this past weekend, and I got the chance to see it opening night. The theater was mostly full (despite a general lack of information about the film from the Richmond theaters themselves), reflecting the anticipation and momentum it has been generating. Earlier in […]

Who Will Rule America – An Earthly King or the Heavenly King?

Who Will Rule America – An Earthly King or the Heavenly King?

“Choose some wise, understanding and respected men from each of your tribes, and I will set them over you.” ~ Deuteronomy 1:13 In 1776, America’s Founders rejected tyrannical rule by earthly kings and embraced freedom under the rule of the Heavenly King. Our Declaration of Independence captures this in a single sentence that has helped […]

A Free Nation Under God

A Free Nation Under God

“When a country is rebellious, it has many rulers …”  ~ Proverbs 28:2 America’s Founders intended to create a nation of free people blessed by God’s providential rule and care. To this end, they implemented a system of constitutionally limited government based on the presupposition that its caretakers would be moral, religious, and in communion […]

I Share Sonnie Johnson’s Reaction About Obamacare Advocates Doing “God’s Work”

Recently, President Obama told his supporters advancing the cause of Obamacare that they are doing “God’s work.” It will surprise exactly zero of you that I wholeheartedly disagree that a government program eliminating health care options for struggling Americans, dramatically increasing their costs, reducing wages and the workforce, and forcing more people to depend on […]
