Lexrex Has a Whole New Look!

Please visit the site, browse around, try the new feature that allows you to send links to friends via email, and make a personal effort to criticize what you see. I want to continue improving the site until we reach the tipping point and America regains her soul and her true heritage.

There are numerous foundational texts at LEXREX but there are several that have gradually become pillars for LEXREX – and they are crucial for the restoration of the Republic. All of these can be read on line for free and all of them can be purchased for your library or your coffee table where they can be discovered and rediscovered all the time.

1.The Law” by Frederick Bastiat
2.War Is A Racket,”
by General Smedley D. Butler,
3.The American Ideal of 1776,”
by Hamilton Abert Long, and
4.A Plea for the Constitution – Wounded in the House of its Guardians,”
by George Bancroft.

To get started I recommend the Audio CD of Bastiat. This can open a whole new universe for everyone in the family. Once we have a grasp of the fundamentals of Liberty and Free Market Economics we will have been immunized against all forms of collectivism and control. During the process of making the recording I became even more familiar with all of its principles. Then, a light went on in my head. A still small voice whispered, “What if every American became this familiar with Bastiat?” That tiny book evolved from a decades-long argument. It may be short, but its power cannot be denied.

The Law is The One Book recommended by Ron Paul as a starting point.

I get excited when I hear people all over talking about things that were verboten just a couple if years ago. When I first learned that the government was lying to me I was disappointed and distraught. I really used to get chills when I sang the National Anthem. Actually I still do sometimes, but for the hope of regaining what we have lost rather than some notion of “my country right or wrong.

You see, I finally realized that We the People have a Mandate from God to set the government straight and return our society to the Rule of Law. The government will not set itself straight in my experience. It is We the People who have the right and the duty to rule over our own government. We are Sovereign both collectively and individually. Study carefully the concept of Dual Sovereignty as outlined by Hamilton Abert Long in The American Deal of 1776.

This is a radical concept that can be easily derived by any child. To wit:

May it be to the world, what I believe it will be, (to some parts sooner, to others later, but finally to all,) the signal of arousing men to burst the chains under which monkish ignorance and superstition had persuaded them to bind themselves, and to assume the blessings and security of self-government. All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately, by the grace of God. - Thomas Jefferson, letter to Roger C. Weightman, June 24, 1826 (in the last letter he penned)

I am especially fond of the new rotating banner feature that allows me to introduce powerful quotes, some of which are relatively obscure. Biographies, quotes, maxims, essays, all of these are becoming less popular in our culture as we become abused by shorter and shorter fragments of thoughts. I am convinced that the way back will involve introducing short, powerful and pithy gems, and using them as bait for the larger works we should all have been reading. We must get them out into all of the new social media and reinfect our society – especially our youth. I may be 63 now, but I am not old, and I don't ever plan to “think old.” I hope to live to 125 or more. BTW I meet chronologically “young” people all the time who are “older” and less optimistic. Thankfully the Ron Paul generation can change all this. It would seem our young people are catching on to the message of Liberty faster than their parents. Let's have a race. I do need a little help with iPods and Androids.

Finally, for those of you who have not had the opportunity I want to debut the latest Lexrex.com article that has been picked up by LewRockwell.com

I had been contemplating the future Administration of President Ron Paul. Please read the article, see if you agree, and pass it along. From a Constitutional point of view I see no other possible choice for those who love the Rule of Law. The other Republican candidates seem to be trying to sound like Ron Paul without truly embracing the Constitution. When they speak in the debates it has become evident that the People want to hear more of Ron Paul and less of the “also-rans.” They would all do well to listen to the audience responses that Ron Paul inspires.

I would like to think the People are cheering the Constitution when they applaud Ron Paul.

The article: From Dr. No to President Veto by Bill Huff

For years U.S. Representative Ron Paul has been called "Dr. No" by his detractors for consistently rejecting each and every Bill he has viewed as unconstitutional, unlawful or unwise. But after all this time that invective is seen by his supporters as a badge of honor. The Constitution and Ron Paul are becoming more familiar to Americans as Ron's wisdom enters the vernacular of Americans of all ages, sexes and conditions, who still love Liberty. Could America be ready to have a man of such character and faithfulness in the White House? Have we learned some bitter lessons? Is Liberty the Answer?

"...a long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defence of custom. But tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason..." ~ Thomas Paine in Common Sense

More than anyone else Ron Paul is defining this election cycle.

"Common-sense, Constitutional government," didn't make as much sense to many Americans as they had their first look at Ron Paul during the 2008 campaign. But just a few wars, and a few bailouts later, and they seem to be coming around to Ron's old fashioned ideas for peaceful and economical solutions. If you listen carefully you'll hear even President Obama, noticeably adjusting his rhetoric, waxing a little more Paulish. Ron Paul's rustic, Constitutional views seemed alien. But not any more. The status quo dies hard. Just ask Galileo. But Ron Paul persists.

The simple consistent message of Ron Paul:

In order to be free, we must all live free, and let others live as they please, as long as they commit no crime against us. We Cannot be the Policemen of the World. We have ample resources to care for all of our people if we let the free market, lawful money, and private charity work for us. If a measure is incompatible with Liberty and/or the Constitution, and we could never afford it in a million years, why do it? It must be destroyed or abandoned before it spawns another system of related laws and regulations that will also need to be killed. As for the Federal Reserve Banking System, Ron wrote the book: End the Fed. CONTINUE READING THE ARTICLE at LEXREX.com.

I look forward to many more years of operating LEXREX.com and writing political opinion that promotes a return to Liberty.

Thank you for assuming your role in teaching this generation to Live Free!
