The Fetal Right to Life Argument: Roe v. Wade (1973) is probably the most important Supreme Court case in the last fifty years. It has divided the nation on moral issues and it continues to be a lightning rod in political debate. In it, the Supreme Court held that a fetus has no right to life and is not a “person” within the meaning of the Constitution. This part of Roe v. Wade was a colossal error, an abuse of judicial power, and an act of social activism. The egregious flaws in Roe can be corrected with a fetal right to life Amendment to the Constitution.

The Capitalism Argument Book Cover

The Capitalism Argument—and the fatal flaws of socialism. Many Americans today do not understand the genius of capitalism. They never learned at school how the capitalism/free enterprise system has been the catalyst and foundation that has made America the most prosperous nation in the history of the world. Failure to understand how capitalism is a key ingredient of our creative, ingenious, productive and prosperous economy puts Americans and their elected officials at risk to mishandle the many political issues that affect our economy. This book is written to help cure this lack of understanding.
