Constitutional Concepts: It’s My Right!

If you have the “wrong” opinion on healthcare, school lunch menus, or whether the M-5000 BlasterTank should be funded in next year’s military budget, you’re a racist.

ACRU’s von Spakovsky: Texas judge appoints himself pretender king of absentee ballot island

ACRU Senior Fellow Hans von Spakovksy with Zack Smith writing for the Heritage Foundation notes the U.S. Supreme Court determined Americans do not have a right to vote by absentee ballot through the mail. But never mind all that, says Texas Judge Fred Biery. Judge Biery is widely known for his bias against religious freedom.
