In October, I published an article about Angelo Codevilla’s article, “After the Republic.” http://www.garynorth.com/public/15733.cfmHe has done it again. I have worked with him for over 40 years, when we were both on Capitol Hill as researchers. I regard him as the smartest guy in the conservative movement.

I devoted the May/June, 1982 issue of Tentmakers, to the subject of health insurance. I discussed the problem facing all covenantally obligated churches, namely, the threat of a catastrophically expensive illness or injury, which strikes a member of the church who is not covered by medical insurance. The church has obligations to care for that […]
