WASHINGTON -- If George W. Bush had ignored the views of his Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel to avoid complying with the War Powers Resolution, Democrats would be going berserk. Barack Obama, I suspect, would be going berserk.

Governing by the rules

Recently in response to Governor Haley's attempt to force the South Carolina State Senate to do her bidding to reform state government, Senator Glenn McConnell in an editorial commentary made a convincing and timely statement with respect to deliberative legislative process and to the respect for constitutional law and the processes of orderly government. While one may not always be in agreement with Senator McConnell, what he had to say in this matter should be a tenet for guiding not only us who serve in government but should be a guiding principle for all of us in going about ...

Leading the way for liberty

In the late 1980s, the fight against global communism entered a crucial phrase. President Ronald Reagan publicly pressed Soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall. Pope John Paul II and Lech Walesa gave Polish workers the courage to rise up against their communist masters. The Velvet Revolution sprang up in Czechoslovakia.

Crafting a moral budget

Can the federal government's spending spree last forever? Of course not. Even when economic growth is strong (hardly the case now, of course), it's foolish to keep spending more than we take in. Congress is going to have to make some serious cuts. Otherwise, we'll face a day of serious financial reckoning -- and sooner than we think.

Noted and passed

• Young people have great resiliency, and we enjoyed a quotation from pro golfer Rory McIlroy after he ran away with the U.S. Open recently. Asked if his last-round collapse in the Masters tournament last spring was weighing heavily on his mind as he approached the final round in the Open, he replied, "Honestly, I don't know what all the fuss is about, because at the end of the day it's just a golf tournament and I'm 21." That's what we call keeping your perspective.

Freedom of information (FOI) issues don't make for juicy reading, as some things involving the General Assembly do. They're fairly mundane and generally don't attract the interest of too many people. But such issues are extremely important, and there are several of them which are surfacing in the legislature for the coming year.

Moment of Nature for Dec. 26, 2014

When this appears in print, it will be the day after Christmas and I hope the day was a meaningful one for you. The candlelight church services will be over, meals will have been eaten, the presents opened and the relatives come and gone (or not). What still remains, though, are the "hanging of the greens." This includes wreaths, door drapery, mantel mounds, banister baubles and of course the Christmas tree. Whether your greenery is real, artificial or some of both, its use and display are steeped in tradition from centuries ago.
