American Council on Science and Health

ACSH was founded in 1978 by a group of scientists who had become concerned that many important public policies related to health and the environment did not have a sound scientific basis. These scientists created the organization to add reason and balance to debates about public health issues and bring common sense views to the public.

Can Capitalism Survive?

The opening page of this web site includes a quote from Benjamin A. Rogge: "Given man's nature, freedom will always be in jeopardy and the only question that need concern each of us is if and how well we took our stand in its defense during the short period of time when we were potentially a part of the struggle." The quote is from his book, "Can Capitalism Survive?," which is no longer in print; however, it is available for reading at this link.

Debt Clock

The national debt was paid off only twice in American history: Once by Thomas Jefferson, and the second (and probably the last time) by Andrew Jackson.

Twenty years ago, the first National Debt Clock, a billboard-sized display, went up on 42nd Street near Times Square in Manhattan, to highlight the rising national debt which at that time was under $3 trillion. In 2004, the original clock was replaced by a new clock at a new location a block away, on Sixth Avenue. In 2008, the U.S. national debt exceeded $10 trillion for the first time, and as of 07:56 on 11/09/2009, the US National Debt stood at $11,979.823,468,807 (that’s TRILLIONS of dollars!), and there’s no telling how high it will be by the time you read this. For the answer, you need not travel to Manhattan to view the clock on Sixth Avenue, all you need to do is to click on this link, to see an interesting real time tracking (watch the numbers grow before your own eyes!) of some numbers that affect us all, including: US National Debt , Debt per citizen , Debt per taxpayer , US spending YTD , US Budget Deficit.

Declaration of Independence interactivre painting

John Trumball’s famous painting “Declaration of Independence, 1776” is exhibited in the Capitol Rotunda in Washington, DC, and is also depicted on the back of the $2 bill; but as common and familiar as the image is, not many of us can name more than a few of the of the men represented in the painting. This link will take you to a web site which features a clever interactive version of the painting, which will produce a pop up ribbon on top of the picture containing the name and a short bio of each person as you pass your mouse over his image .

The Perilous Ambiguities in the Constitution

The two most destructive phrases in the Constitution are destructive, not because they explicitly or intentionally contradict the principles underlying the document’s wording and otherwise explicit language, but because they are arguably ill- or undefined, and, to later generations of scholars and jurists, ambiguous and open to “interpretation.” Their ambiguity later permitted contradictory amendments to the Constitution together with legislation that all but rendered the Constitution a dead document, giving leave to presidents and Congress over the decades to advocate and enact a mammoth, costly, and liberty-destroying mountain of “stuff.”

These phrases are general welfare and regulate commerce.

US Flag History

Virtually everyone in the United States is aware of the legend of Betsy Ross and the making of the First U.S. Flag. Although it cannot be proven, it has been accepted as fact by Americans since first publicly stated in 1870. Few Americans, however, are aware that Betsy was not the only Flagmaker in the early days of our republic. Indeed, numerous individuals are documented as flagmakers and probably countless others were also engaged in the business of vexillography at that time.
