    Hypocrisy, Double Standards, and Lies

    I don’t know about you but I am more and more getting annoyed and angry at the actions of those who didn’t vote for President Donald Trump. Not because they didn’t vote for him but because their behavior following the election and inauguration is appalling; bordering on evil. Their responses are infantile and irresponsible. They... by OurVoicesAR

    ‘We the People,’ not ‘We the Democrats’

    Our Founders, in their infinite wisdom, created the Electoral College to ensure that all the states are fairly represented in elections. Now apparently the Democrats want us to believe they know better (but only because their candidate/party lost the presidential election) — shouldn’t just one or two densely populated areas speak for the whole of... by OurVoicesAR

    You Say You’re a Patriot?

    If you believe in liberty and call yourself a patriot, prepare for misery. Prepare to be inconvenienced. Uncomfortable. You’ve heard the message before: the truth will make you miserable and then the truth will set you free. But, you must work for it. The truth is miserable: If Hillary Clinton and the autocratic, Progressive political... by OurVoicesAR

    Just to the Right: Religion, Sociologically Speaking

    Goodson or Kemp, Who’s the Conservative?

    Who’s the conservative and how do you know? How do you learn the facts about judicial candidates when they run as “non-partisan?” (Can you base your vote on a “D” or an “R” behind someone’s name in any other race?) Who can you believe? In the Supreme Court race there’s been lots of whining about... by OurVoicesAR

    Just to the Right: The Rise of an American Dictator

    Upon leaving Independence Hall after signing the Constitution in 1787, Dr. Benjamin Franklin was anxiously approached by a woman who asked, “Well, Doctor, what have we got – a republic or a monarchy?” “A republic,” replied Franklin, “if you can keep it.” Franklin, considered by many Constitutional Convention delegates to be their mentor, cautioned that... by OurVoicesAR

    “Are We Free?” (Something to Think About)

    As the March 1 primary election gets closer every day, we turn our thoughts to how we will vote, who deserves our support, and the reasons we feel the way we do about those values and candidates.

    Just to the Right: The Absence of Angels

    It’s been established that only “a virtuous people” can support a republican form of government. Now, begs the question, what kind of leaders should “a virtuous people” elect in a representative democracy? James Madison, “The Father of the Constitution” and the fourth president of the United States wrote, “If men were angels, no government would... by OurVoicesAR

    “Governing” Depends on Who You Ask

    Everyone knows that the GOP is turning its back on conservative values and voters; their excuse is they “want to govern, not be obstructive.” Everyone knows that Hillary Clinton ran classified American business via a private server in her basement — and the excuse, the refrain is: “Depends on the meaning of ‘classified’!” Just like... by OurVoicesAR

    Are We Surprised at Asa?

    Apparently our Republican Governor is frustrated with certain conservative GOP state lawmakers because they won’t support a gas tax hike or the party’s continuing unholy alliance with the Democrats on Obamacare in Arkansas (the Private Option). We hear that Asa asked his staff why he wasn’t getting the same cooperation from the General Assembly that... by OurVoicesAR

    Politics and the Negative Option

    Some of you may remember the old-style book clubs. You know, the ones where you received a book every month in the mail? Once you signed up, you got the book automatically and could only cancel it by remembering to say “no” in time before delivery. Many times you ended up having to pay for... by OurVoicesAR
