New Hampshire Law Points Out the Obvious

New Hampshire is the first state to adopt the Jury Nullification Law. In a nutshell, the law allows attorneys to explain to the jury that if individuals don’t agree with the specific law that the charges are based on or how they were applied in the case, each juror can refuse to convict, even if the accused was technically guilty of said charges. To me, the Founding Fathers wanted this for America. A trial among your peers. If...

Republicans Get Taste of the Medicine They Prescribe to 3rd Parties

Last week a beautiful thing happened in Virginia. All the Republican Presidential candidates, except for Ron Paul and Mitt Romney, got to taste their own medicine…the same medicine the GOP, along with the Democrats, have been giving 3rd parties for decades. I’ve said many times that we’re all Americans first before we register for a political party. So, I’m not taking a side other than the American side....

Is Christmas an American Holiday?

Americans have mixed feelings about Christmas. Forget about the fact that Christmas is a national holiday; that is not what I am talking about. Despite what some people think, Christmas is an American holiday just like Thanksgiving is. December 25th is also a religious holiday for those that choose to celebrate it that way. I know, I can feel the hate coming from all directions. Don’t blame me for pointing out the obvious. Why...
