Also, look at the life & deeds of Mohammed, their prophet.
I do not think there is a real difference between "radical Islam" & Islam. Look at the life, actions & teachings of Mohammed & his early followers. Look at the militant way in which Islam was spread for hundreds of years. Radical Islam = Islam. It appears that is the expected Islam norm, although there may be many non-violent, non-militant followers of Islam in today's more "civilized" society.
Smaller & more local government is usually better than bigger & more distant government. So overall, I think it would be a good thing, although with more independent states, it would cause more disagreements between states. Yet smaller states would also mean less military power for a big state to throw around. More states would then tend to mind their own business, rather than interfere in some place far away.

Return To Republicanism?

This is the kind of "Republicanism" I would like the GOP to reform into, but I doubt it will. This is the kind of limited government our Founding Fathers wanted for the USA, but which we lost. I do not think the solution to our present out-of-control welfare/warfare/police state is anarchy. We should learn from our mistakes & return to a small, limited, Constitutional Republic and warn the People about becoming apathetic towards government. We need to impress upon the People that good government requires vigilance & informed voting.

Mr. President, How Is It NOT Islam?

Great article, Kevin McCullough... especially the 10 points that you listed.
I had guessed about the religion of the person who brutally beheaded another person in Moore, Oklahoma... but I had to wait a while before my suspicions were confirmed. Most news media outlets are too concerned about "political correctness" to divulge that information right away.
Correct, because we are all sinners deserving God's punishment rather than His love. But we need to accept His definition of what is sin & what is righteousness. We cannot call sin good or what is good a sin because of modern political correctness. We need to tell the truth about the consequences (both in this world & the next) about sin & how to avoid those bad consequences (repentance & receiving God's forgiveness).

Hey Europe, Blame the Socialists

Sadly, the USA seems to follow in the footsteps of European strong welfare statism with high taxes & welfare costs. Rather than return to a smaller government with lower taxes & self reliance, the progressives in the USA keep following Europe's failing policies of bigger government, higher taxes & more reliance on government support for the people. The economy becomes very inefficient & there is a maldistribution of capital needed to improve it.

"Democrats Will Never Fix Obamacare" -And neither will Republicans! This Unconstitutional law (regardless of what our twisted Supreme Court says) needs a total repeal.
