Friday, May 30th, 2014

John Kerry on Saddam

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

“Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein.

Monday, April 28th, 2014

Champions of Liberty

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

The duties of good citizens and soldiers

Friday, October 25th, 2013

“While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian.” –George Washington (1778)

national morality
