Make Your Child Spend 10 Minutes Watching This

Written by Peter Heck

Several years ago I was approached in the grocery store by a gentleman from our community that I knew through acquaintance. He had learned that I was the new government teacher at our local high school and wanted to see if I was willing to accept a guest speaker. I told him I was open to the idea but was curious who he had in mind.… Continue Reading

Exposing the Fraud of Socialism

Written by David Limbaugh

People seem shocked that recent polls show millennials are enamored of socialism — an economic system that reasonable and educated Americans have long known is disastrous. They shouldn’t be; this has been a long time coming.

The latest survey by Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation shows that 70 percent of millennials are likely to vote socialist.… Continue Reading

Denial of Reality Could Become a Democratic Campaign Slogan

Written by Dr. Everett Piper 

On Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2019, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump for allegedly asking the Ukrainian president to investigate Joe Biden. U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy responded: “Facts be damned. Democrats are insisting this is their moment to impeach President Trump. Speaker Pelosi’s decree changes nothing.”… Continue Reading

Socialism is Theft — Why Are Candidates Espousing It?

Written by Jerry Newcombe

I recently preached a sermon on the subject of stealing in our church’s series on the Ten Commandments. And one of the points I made is that socialism is a form of theft.

I mentioned the slogan going around during the 1960s — “property is theft.”

But the Bible says, “Thou shalt not steal.” Implied in that commandment is the sanctity of private property — I’m not allowed to simply take it because someone else owns it.… Continue Reading

Dr. Paul Kengor Takes on Democratic Socialism at the Reagan Ranch

Written by David E. Smith

Communism, socialism, democratic socialism – if asked, could you accurately define these terms? For many of us, Political Science 101 was a long time ago, so our answer would likely be “no.” However, definitions and distinctions are important, especially when we are engaging with fellow citizens who are enthusiastically, and often blindly, embracing a political philosophy they don’t fully understand and, if adopted, would be disastrous for our nation.… Continue Reading

What Is This Love Affair With Socialism?

Written by Jerry Newcombe

“Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it,” said Santayana. Many young people today claim to prefer socialism—and in some cases, even communism (which is socialism’s more violent form)—over capitalism.

Recently a candidate for city council in Denver declared that capitalism has failed and that socialism is the future. Candi Cdebaca said that we are in the “last phase” of capitalism—as if it is dying.… Continue Reading

On Trump, Democrats, and Socialism

Written by Dr. Paul G. Kengor

I published a piece recently on the reaction to President Trump’s condemnation of socialism in his State of the Union. He said something indisputably factual and indubitably obvious to most Americans: “Here, in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country. Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.”… Continue Reading

This edition of spotlight features Pastor Doug Wilson who spoke at the IFI worldview conference on the transgender ideology. He joins Monte Larrick and David Smith to discuss the biblical cultural mandate, why Christians should have continued hope for change and revival, socialism and its relation to the corruption and failure of public schools.

Healthcare is NOT a Right

Written by David E. Smith

Universal healthcare, also known as “Medicare for All,” is back in the news.  U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is joined in his advocacy of this entitlement program by most, if not all, Democratic presidential candidates, including U.S. Senators Kamala Harris (D-CA), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Cory Booker (D-NJ), U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) and former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro.… Continue Reading

No, We’re Not All Socialists Now

Written by Jerry Newcombe

[Recently], the New York Post had an editorial about how many millennials embrace “socialism,” while not really knowing what it means:  “Millennials — ignorant of socialism’s appalling economic and human-rights history — increasingly embrace socialism and its naively unrealistic prescriptions for ending all human want.”

I’m reminded of a college student who wrote his dad: “Dear Dad, No mon.… Continue Reading
