• Having spent years as a street cop early in my career, I can tell you that when 95% of murder victims in urban centers are “people of color,” and 95% of perpetrators are “people of color,” cops of any color are going to be more cautious with “people of color.” This isn’t “racism,” this is reality, driven by a desire to make the community safe and to return home at the end of that day’s tour ~Mark Alexander

  • The primary purpose of the Second Amendment isn’t to preserve hunting, or sport shooting, or even self-defense, though it does protect all those things. The Founders’ intent when enshrining our natural right to “keep and bear arms” was to ensure that the people could defend against a tyrannical government — that’s precisely why tyrannical governments always begin by disarming the people. Anyone who doubts this truth should ponder the awful history and the appalling body count of 20th-century communism. Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi once said, “Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.” ~Mark Alexander

Nationalism vs. American Patriotism

  • “Nationalism refers to a blind allegiance to the state, no matter what the nature of the state may be. American Patriotism refers to the steadfast devotion for the First Principles of our nation’s Founding, individual Liberty as ‘endowed by our Creator,’ and the extension of that legacy to our posterity. American Patriotic devotion to Liberty will always be in contest with allegiance to the state or its sovereigns, especially when it manifests in some form of Socialism” ~Mark Alexander
