“Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered,” as Thomas Payne wrote, yet “we have this consolation with us that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheaply, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value.” America’s Millennial and Z generations appear thus far not to appreciate freedom’s ‘dearness’. For all they know, freedom is free. They may soon learn the true cost of independence. Human nature does not change. It is today as it was twenty centuries ago. History, therefore, constantly repeats itself. Using their experience with...Read More
Unfortunately, more than half of Americans, including the majority of Christians, don’t even bother to vote. Shame on them all! Don’t they know that tyranny for us and our children is only one generation, or even one election, away? We must vote, vote, vote to elect leaders who will defend what has been purchased with the blood of patriots who died to protect our liberty. We owe it to the memory of their sacrifice to preserve what they did for us. We must not fritter it away on our watch! If any politician tells you he will “fundamentally change”...Read More
The American Renewal Project was founded to give greater currency to the principles laid down by the American Founders.

CA Pastor Talks Politics for the First Time to Defend Gospel: State Legislators Take Notice For the past 28 years, as pastor of Water of Life Community Church, Dan Carroll watched the California legislature enact laws that negatively impacted his community. Although troubled, he never shared his concerns publicly with his congregation. Pastor Carroll’s passion was ministry, not politics. But this year his attitude changed with the introduction of AB 2943, a bill that undermines the ability of the church to share the Gospel with those struggling with same sex attractions or gender confusion. Several months ago, Pastor Carroll took the...Read More
Harvard Law Professor Mark Tushnet couldn’t help but sneer while he gloated in 2016: “Right now more than half of the judges sitting on the courts of appeals were appointed by Democratic presidents, and – though I wasn’t able to locate up-to-date numbers – the same appears to be true of the district courts. And, those judges no longer have to be worried about reversal by the Supreme Court if they take aggressively liberal positions. “The culture wars are over; they lost, we won. Remember, they were the ones who characterized constitutional disputes as culture wars … “For liberals,...Read More
