Big Brother Smackdown: Political Parties

Political Parties – Democrats, Republicans, and Those Other Guys

One thing that we hear the most during any election campaign, Presidency or otherwise, is about “Letting your voice be heard”. Now, I’m a guy that sees irony in many things. It just stands out to me. In this statement, the irony is amazingly blatant. I don’t feel the statement is true; and I certainly don’t feel the best people for our country are elected into office. More often than not, the guys that can fix our country are the ones nobody pays attention to.

As Requested: A List of Mitt Romney’s Lies

On Twitter tonight, I had the ill-begotten pleasure of getting into a discussion with a Christian Conservative under the name of @CoFemale. Ordinarily, anyone that I follow has usually shown a sense of intelligence and/or humor. However, as most people who know me can attest, I have a very low tolerance for ignorance.

U.S. Debt Paradox: The Chinese Call Americans Evil, Yet Receive Annual Foreign Aid

These are polarizing times, especially in the United States of America. It is an election year and the battle between primary candidates has been fierce.

Big Brother Smackdown Series: Piggyback Legislation

A controversial, but not unlawful, practice of piggyback legislation in Congress has become one of the most used methods in Congressional Warfare.  Legally known as a ‘Rider’, these are bills, or groups of bills, that are attached to other legislation which are, many times, unrelated. In this fourth editorial of the Big Brother Smackdown Series, we take a look at what a Rider actually is, and why it is marked as one of the serious problems of our Government.

Uncommon Knowledge: Antonin Scalia

This is a must-see video for a great look inside the mind of a Supreme Court Justice.

After watching this, my opinion (which was largely judgmental without facts or evidence) about Antonin Scalia has turned about completely. He views the law, and the Constitution, the same way I do. He shows intelligent and thought in his answers.

Big Brother Smackdown Series: The Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court

(Politicizing the Constitution of the United States of America)

In recent years, and most especially since the recent Supreme Court decision regarding the Affordable Health Care Act, there has been an outcry, both politically and publicly, for change to be brought to the United States Supreme Court. Proponents of Change argue that the members of the Supreme Court have consistently become more political in their decisions, stretching interpretations of the Constitution to back whatever political agenda they serve.

Could the Individual Mandate Be Unconstitutional Even As a Tax? Part 2

Part 2: The Question of Constitutionality

After reviewing the majority opinion on the Affordable Health Care Act, now we shift to renewing questions of constitutionality. Despite the Supreme Court ruling that the Individual Mandate is constitutional as a tax, it is possible that calling it a tax makes it unconstitutional.

Could the Individual Mandate Be Unconstitutional Even As a Tax? Part 1

Part 1: Precursor – Understanding the Supreme Court Decision

Much ado about everything has been made about the Affordable Health Care Act (AHCA, ObamaCare), but are we missing the most important thing? Did the Supreme Court, in February, find the AHCA constitutional as a tax, despite the tax itself being unconstitutional?

To decide this, we first need to understand the Supreme Court’s controversial decision.
