Choice or force?

What a great time to be alive, if you love liberty. I'd rather be fighting for the survival of all we hold dear, as now becomes imperative in America, than coasting along in tranquil times with our mettle untested. Facing Obama's naked power grab to veer this country left, we have the privilege to participate in a decisive moment almost like 1861 or 1787. Writing in Federalist No. 1, Hamilton said his generation must "decide the important question, whether societies of men are really capable or not of establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever destined to depend for their political constitutions on accident and force." You and I are in a similar fight today against the coercive utopians seeking to force us toward a European-style future. The battle rages on many fronts, and we'll survey them on Backbone Radio this Sunday. Please join us.

** Global warming adversaries James White of CU and Chris Horner of CEI will be along to preview their upcoming Denver debate. Tickets for the April 8, 730pm event at Centennial Institute are free if you click here.

** Ryan Frazier pitches his US Senate candidacy... Mike Littwin reviews the Ward Churchill trial... and John Fonte unmasks the latest hard-left Obama appointee on Hillary Clinton's team.

** Plus Prof. Richard Reeb on the moral foundations of freedom... and Marya DeGrow on parental rights in homeschooling.

Some may wish for a more placid politics and hang back. But those who step up will remember these dark days of 2009 as bright days. They'll be bonded forever in the American cause as "we few, we happy few, we band of brothers," like Henry V's men at another glorious hour. Let's answer the call.

Yours for the Constitution, JOHN ANDREWS
