There's an international rating of countries by how corrupt they are, called the Corruptions Perceptions Index—from least corrupt at #1 to most corrupt at #175. The USA is #19 from least... More > corrupt—tied with Uruguay. Not bad maybe, but we can do better. The reason we're not higher is how much special interests control our government. This book suggests some reforms to discuss and consider to end corruption, such as proportional representation, public campaign financing, term limits, ranked-choice and “none of the above” voting, and combining these with a long-term federal balanced budget and just and fair and simple taxation. Many of these require Constitutional Amendments. But Congress proposes Amendments, and the incumbents in Congress are unlikely to propose these reforms, because they would change how the people in Congress become incumbents in the first place. However, our Founding Framers gave us a solution for just this problem: the states calling an Article V Convention to Propose Amendments.< Less

JUNE 4, 1863... As the sun began to set below the horizon across the May River estuary, smoke clouds still billowed from the burning homes and buildings of the town; when it rose on the morning of... More > June 5, it was evident that Bluffton's antebellum way of life had vanished forever. Perhaps in an omen of what was to come for the South, the burning of Bluffton, South Carolina, in 1863 was a prelude to the farewell of the Southern plantation era and of the institution of slavery. In the years leading up to the Civil War, Bluffton had gained national prominence as a hotbed of secessionist activity. The Bluffton Movement was sparked during a fiery political gathering held under a sprawling and magnificent live oak now referred to as the Secession Oak. The movement generated a dangerous whirlwind of political rhetoric that only war and devastation would silence.

The writing team focused on the transformation of the IDF before and after the Second Lebanon War of 2006 and in... More > preparation for Operation CAST LEAD in the winter of 2008-09. In Lebanon, the IDF pitted ill-trained soldiers and ill-educated officers, who attempted to carry out vague orders and unfamiliar tasks, against men with good weapons and a simple mission. This was the first open conflict in Israel's "cold war" with Iran and its proxy force of Hezbollah in what became known as the Second Lebanon War. The IDF Operation CAST LEAD against Hamas in 2008-09 was a small-scale affair in comparison to the multi-division attack into Lebanon in 2006. The former operation, however, restored confidence in both the government and armed forces in the eyes of the Israeli populace. The reforms of the year and a half between conflicts paid great dividends. (Originally published by the Combat Studies Institute Press, U.S. Army)< Less
