The Sorry State of the Union - Alan Keyes

"We live in revolutionary times, by which I mean times when a form of government will either be restored or overthrown – not just in the sense that one group replaces another in power, but in the profound sense that substitutes one premise of government for another. In our case, the premises of aristocratic despotism (the rule of superior ability, force and fear) are replacing those of democratic liberty (moral equality, self-discipline, consent). Unfortunately, the battle between these forces is being waged in an intellectual climate deeply prejudiced against the understanding needed even to comprehend the nature of the battle, much less wage it effectively. This is what makes the prospects for liberty so obscure."

- The demands of conscience

- The Christian standard

- McCain abandons principle on the issue of abortion

- McCain abandons principle on the issue of destroying human embryos for research

- McCain: Blind to principle on the issue of marriage natural right and the family

- Family and government by consent

- Disregarding the natural basis of family leads to tyrannical government

- Homosexual marriage and the principle of natural human equality

- Surrendering to relativism

- McCain's stand on national security is dangerously self-contradictory

- The lesser evil more deadly?

- Who helps Obama?

- Obama's greatest vulnerability

... and finally,

- No choice but evil?
