Information is Power

By Ben Gilmore | January 17, 2013

This morning, a dear friend, disavowed American exceptionalism by equating it to previous empires that have risen and fallen. I believe his views are shared by many sincerely patriotic Americans, dedicated to godliness and righteousness. Men of whom the world is not worthy, bled and died to raise America to a level of godliness and…

Stone Setting

By Ben Gilmore | January 3, 2013

How to begin the first column of the year! Perhaps “setting a foundation” is the proper place. The red-blooded, jump-right-in, American-patriotic way, is to ignore the context and get-right-down to the details!!!! That is said in jest.
