Our Principles and Policies radio show for Saturday July 19, 2014. Barry Sheets and Chuck Michaelis expose Politicians in several governor’s offices (including our own- John Kasich) and State Attorney Generals (including our own- Mike DeWine) by looking at how they are handling hot potato issues like Common Core and homosexual “marriage.” To call these vote mongers “conservative” is to demonstrate that there is no meaning left in that word.

Principles and Policies Podcast for 5/10/2014- How The Principles Of ’98 Work

Our Principles and Policies radio show for Saturday May 10, 2014. Chuck Michaelis hosts as we present the audio portion of a video filmed at Camp American The presenter is Barry Sheets, Director of the Institute For Principled Policy and CEO of Principled Consulting.

The recording was made at Camp American in June of 2012 and is also available as a video DVD from Camp American. The question that is asked in this (and the preceding) presentation is “what recourse do the states and the people have when the federal government oversteps its specifically enumerated powers?” Barry gives a presentation that begins to answer that question but in answering it gives a great presentation on the history, philosophy, and, yes, theology behind the doctrine of interposition.
