Religious Liberty

An individual’s civil rights of religious liberty and freedom of conscience should be affirmed and free from government interference.

Why is it so hard to understand?
Remember learning about the Pavlovian experiment where every time he rung a bell, he gave a dog a treat, resulting in the dog connecting the sound of bell with food? (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, just watch this clip from The Office and you’ll see what I mean). This experiment best explains what has happened today with the conversation around religious freedom. Every time the topic comes up, folks on the left immediately cry “discrimination,” regardless of...

Two years after the “temporary” income tax expired, rapacious Springfield lawmakers are once again working toward raising our taxes, supposedly in order to solve the state’s fiscal problems.

Identity Politics and Paraphilias: Tribalism & Urolagnia
Almost every day in the op eds it’s there — the secret path to victory for economic and social conservatives. Will they see it? Fiscal conservatives work to present well thought out policies that work in line with human nature and economics. For example, how to structure the health care system so health care is both accessible and affordable for everyone. Leftists, on the other hand, ignore economics and seek “fairness” for aggrieved groups and create a mess like Obamacare....

Self-Marriage: When Fools Marry Fools

Lord Willing, This is the First of Many
Let’s flash back 10 years ago… This was a time when a majority of states had constitutional marriage amendments defining marriage s the union of one man and one woman – a time when support for this definition was bipartisan: from John McCain to Barack Obama, most politicians would confess their support for marriage. As you may recall, at that time supporters of redefining marriage had a favorite talking point: what does my marriage have to do with you? Why...

Chicago CasiNO!?
On February 28th, the Illinois Senate passed SB 7 - a massive gambling bill - by a vote of 31-26. Yet for lawmakers with an insatiable hunger for revenue at the expense of well-documented social costs, it wasn't enough. Yesterday, the Illinois Senate passed an amended version of SB 7 to exploit even more citizens, by a vote of 33-24 with 1 voting present. (See roll call chart below.)
