Herman Cain, the Constitution, and the Resurrection of America

Before last week, I knew three things about Herman Cain: he is black, is the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, and is considering running for president of the United States as a Republican. Before then, nothing; since then, assuming he doesn’t walk-back his statement regarding the 2nd Amendment, a paladin of the fundamental principles upon which this Republican form of government was founded.

Sonia Sotomayor, the Founding Fathers, and Hidden Treasures

The plot:

Benjamin Franklin Gates, was a descendant of a family of treasure seekers, who sought one treasure, and one treasure only–the Brobdingnagian treasure hidden by the Founding Fathers shortly after the Revolutionary War. The Gate’s family was made aware of the treasure by their ancestor, Thomas Gates, who was a stable boy for President Jackson. Charles Carroll, the last surviving signer of the Declaration of Independence, unable to pass the information about the treasure to Jackson, was left with the only option available to him at the time: to pass the information to the stable boy, Thomas Gates. The plot involves characters such as pharaohs, emperors, the Knights Templar, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. Clues to the location of the treasures are hidden in the most elaborate and clandestine places with the most intellectually defying cryptic clues imaginable. Each clue leads to another clue, then another, and etcetera. This is, of course, not real; it is the plot line from the movie National Treasure, starring Nicholas Cage as Benjamin Franklin Gates, and is just a fantastical cinematic adventure, (or so I thought).

I am perplexed over the Supreme Court’s decision in the case of Redding v. Safford United School District. The court ruled that the 4th Amendment rights of one Savana Redding were violated by the school’s performing a strip search of Savana for prescription drugs. I am perplexed on two levels: first, the ruling in favor of Savana Redding, and second, the strip search by the school.

Why I Am Voting For John McCain

Every four years the United States has a presidential election. Each election cycle generally presents a unique reason, or reasons, for the public to vote for one candidate or another. It may be a one issue vote, such as taxes, the economy, health care, national security, or ideology. This coming presidential election is categorically different. The American people have been presented with two choices for president. One being a semi-conservative, and quasi-Republican John McCain, and the other being a consummate Socialist, Marxist– terms of endearment vis-a-vis Obama’s categorical definition: Democratic anarchist.

The Supreme Court Got the 2nd Amendment Right

β€œOn every question of construction of the Constitution, let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” β€” Thomas Jefferson

The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
