SOLO-International Op-Ed: A Second Declaration of Independence

Lindsay Perigo
December 26, 2009

When in the course of human affairs it becomes necessary for citizens to break the political chains that hitherto have bound them, and to reclaim the individual sovereignty which is their birthright, it is opportune and appropriate for them to declare the causes which have impelled them to self-liberation. We, the freedom-loving citizens of the United States of America, choose to do so at this historic moment.

Teaching the Controversy

Submitted by Kyrel Zantonavitch on Tue, 2014-06-17 13:58

The ignorant, irrational, evil Christians of Western Civilization today often say, with disarming simplicity: "Teach the controversy." On August 1st, 2005, U.S. President George W. Bush said: "Both sides should be properly taught" so "people can understand what the debate is about."

D-Day and Enlightenment Values
By Edward Hudgins

June 6, 2014 – My late Uncle “Boots” Van Pelt was almost killed 70 years ago. He went ashore on Omaha Beach with the 29th Infantry Division on D-Day. After the initial troop landings, he was found and thought dead, but he roused as they were putting him into a body bag.

We may need a new vocabulary for political liberty. Some of the current and accepted welfare state language -- even going back over 5000 years, to Sumaria and Eqypt -- seems loose and awful.
