In Part I of this essay, we discussed the terms Liberty and Equality in accordance with Natural Rights theory and Constitutional governance, and then we summarized the ten planks of Karl Marx's 1948 Communist Manifesto. We showed how our Constitutional Republic has been eroded toward a Social[ist] Democracy by the infiltration of those Marxist planks in our polity.

Americans lost a bit more of their right to privacy last week -- and a little more of the freedom that goes along with it.

On April 12, the Department of Health and Human Services announced that it will be implementing the so-called medical privacy regulations which were written and hurriedly submitted in the closing days of the Clinton administration.

Thomas Jefferson once admonished us that "the natural progression of things is for liberty to yield and for government to gain ground." In this, as in his many other admonitions to posterity, he was immensely correct. Georgia was one of several states like Colorado, Texas, and California to implement a fingerprint requirement for obtaining a driver's license. A recent report in The American Sentinel (issue #613; Editor: Lee Bellinger, P.O.

Georg Hegel (1770-1831), the father of dialectical idealism, which Karl Marx transmogrified and misappropriated as dialectical materialism, lamented that what we learn from history is that man does not learn its lessons. Despite what we have learned about the deleterious effects of draconian gun control in other countries, particularly during the last bloody century, politicians with authoritarian leanings continue to beat the drums for more gun control.

Almost weekly I'm receiving solicitations for "People to People" Cultural Exchanges from physician groups or sundry other organizations travelling to communist Cuba. The latest invitation has been from none other than Mary Jean Eisenhower, the CEO of People to People International. She is the granddaughter of President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling declaring the Pledge of Allegiance unconstitutional because of the words "under God" is another symptom of the progressive, liberal judicial insanity that has been permeating our society since the 1960s. Our Constitution gives us freedom of worship, not proscription of religion.

Thomas Jefferson warned us that judicial activism could lead to tyranny and chaos if unchecked. The chickens have come home to roost.

We had no choice but to punish the perpetrators and collaborators of the heinous 9-11 terrorist attack that left nearly 3,000 innocent Americans crying out for justice. It was an unprovoked attack, correctly an act of war, and the U.S. had good cause under the Just War doctrine (i.e., the Judeo-Christian principle establishing the right to defend oneself against an aggressor) to retaliate and to punish the guilty and discourage future acts of terrorism. Such dastardly barbarity should not go unpunished.

America's Founding Fathers, our prescient, venerable predecessors, established for us a Constitutional Republic, limited government by the rule of law and with the consent of the governed. They also said, in the voice of Benjamin Franklin (1787), that our newly founded nation was and should remain a Republic, if we can keep it, if we can preserve it as a cherished legacy for posterity.

Senator-elect Hillary Rodham Clinton was correct when she said in Albany, New York, "I hope no one is ever in doubt again about whether their vote counts." Indeed, citizens should make their votes count, but they also have a responsibility to become informed and vigilant in exercising that civic duty.

As dramatic events unfold in Florida (i.e., tainted by mismarked ballots in Palm Beach County, miscounted votes, bureaucratic snafus, etc.) the Democrats are exploiting these "irregularities" to the core. Never mind that voter fraud by the Democrats has been widespread in South Florida for years, and Janet Reno has known about it.

In his State of the Union Address, President George W. Bush proposed the formation of a USA Freedom Corps, calling for every American "to commit at least two years ­ 4,000 hours over the rest of your lifetime ­ to the service of your neighbors and your nation."

This will require 80 hours per year for every adult American. On Jan. 29, 2002, at another function, Bush further explained the concept and gave a pitch for the "volunteer" program that will require $560 million from taxpayers by 2003.

Public dare not keep quiet about how the government is treating Starr, McCranie

I don't know Georgia militia leader Bob Starr or James McCranie, but by The Telegraph's own coverage they are being accused of and imprisoned for dubious charges not substantiated by the testimony of their BATF accusers in the judicial hearings held in Macon on May 6.
