This episode is inspired by Paul Harvey's epic segment from 1965 called, "If I Were the Devil", where he outlined what the devil would do if he wanted to take down the United States.

In this episode, I attempt to update his nearly sixty-year-old rant with some specific and recent examples.

The Constitution served as the glue that held the United States together for over two hundred years. Unfortunately, over the last century, we have seen a steady erosion of the principles and rules of the game captured in that document. So much so that we now live in a post-constitutional country where the document is all but ignored or it is bastardized to fit the needs of the ruling class.

The sheer size of the federal government and the power it wields far exceeds anything the founding generation could ever have imagined. For those who love the country, this is a sad revelation. For those who love power, control and influence, they can claim victory.

This episode should be a wake-up call.

It should help you better understand the world in which we live.

It should help you recognize "it" when you see "it" and call "it" out for what "it" is.

The "it" is soft totalitarianism.

In order for your average Democrat / Liberal / Trump-hater to reconcile their world view, they must maintain certain beliefs based on inaccurate information, lies or on a series of woke, virtue-signalling platitudes. Unfortunately for them (and the country) much of what they believe tends to be anti-American, anti-capitalism, anti-Constitution and, most importantly (to them) anti-Trump.

But that's only half of the story!

They must protect these beliefs by figuratively putting on blinders that inhibit their vision of the many truths that contradict their world view. Additionally, they end up endorsing character assassination, political persecution and prosecution of their political opponents, which is standard practice from their leaders.

At the end of the day, they are blinded by their political bias.

If you asked 100 people if they think America is healthy culturally, financially, spiritually, educationally, racially, or constitutionally, I am willing to bet a large majority would respond in the negative.

America is broken and the only thing that can save it (from itself) is state secession.

In this episode I build the case for secession:

  • The reasons it is necessary
  • Why secession is good
  • Refute most of the common objections to secession
  • Address how it could be accomplished in the 21st century

Please comment below and help build the secession movement.

We covered a lot of ground in the first 100 episodes - the Constitution, economics, abortion, social issues, healthcare, socialism and Christian apologetics to name a few. In this episode, I take a brief look at some of the myths we busted and review lessons learned.

The “S” word - secession - seems to be brought up with more and more frequency lately. Most recently we have seen counties in rural Virginia exploring the possibility of seceding from the state and joining West Virginia. We are seeing similar movements in Northern California and rural counties in Oregon. While those are wonderful developments, the larger question regarding secession is the idea of entire states seceding from the United States and essentially establish their own nation.

The idea of state secession picks up steam with every passing year as the federal government - the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches AND the federal bureaucracy - continues to enlarge its power base well beyond its enumerated powers in the Constitution.

In this episode, I will introduce you to the concept of secession, discuss some of the current and past secession movements and walk you through three reasons why secession is not only desirable but necessary. In Episode #88 we will discuss how secession is justified and rebut most of the arguments against it.

What does the spectacle known as the State of the Union Address reveal?

In the first part of this episode, we examine President Trump's 2020 State of the Union Address through the eyes of someone who has been off the grid for several decades - an unbiased, casual observer. What did he notice? What were his impressions? What questions did he have?

The last part of the episode is an assessment of what the SOTU address reveals about the state of our nation, the state of our federal government and the state of the Constitution.

If you ask the average American their impression of Edward Snowden, you are likely to hear him portrayed as a villain; he is a traitor to the country and should be tried for treason. A growing minority, however, view him as a hero for exposing the illegal and unconstitutional mass surveillance program which was implemented shortly after the terrorist attack on September 11.

In this episode, we examine the Snowden saga with an eye toward what it teaches us about the Constitution.

In this episode I recount a conversation I had a few months ago with someone in my family. It was a short but wide-ranging discussion mostly about national politics but the actual content is less important than the lessons I drew from it.
