John Adams: Party of One—Man of God

LIBERTY LETTERS WITH STEVE FARRELL Editor's Note: This book review was previously published in 2005 at NewsMax.com and elsewhere on the Net.

NEA and God: A Partnership In Denial

BY STEVE FARRELL Missing the Mark With Religion, Part 12 A little secret is out. Maybe you’ve heard?

The Public Consequences of So-Called Private Choices

The Public Consequences of So-Called Private Choices

BY STEVE FARRELL Should the decision to partake of illegal drugs become sacrosanct, now and forever? Or to put it another way, are all moral choices, no matter how extreme, beyond the reach of the law because they involve private decisions on moral matters? This is a good question. There are political forces both on the left and on the right [...]

Rebels They Were Not! – Part 3 – Jefferson On Rebellion

LIBERTY LETTERS WITH STEVE FARRELL Editor’s Note: Read Part 1, & Part 2 Not every person who calls himself "patriot" deserves the badge he or she so proudly parades in front of his fellow man.
