    • A Lesson in Liberal/Democratic Party Hypocrisy - 22 Apr 2014
      posted in Columns

      What do Herman Cain, Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Tim Scott, Michele Bachmann, Condoleezza Rice, Allen West, Dr. Ben Carson, and TW Shannon all have in common? Calm down, Joseph.  I see your hand, but I want someone else to answer for a change.  No takers?  Okay, Joseph. You are correct.  They are hated by liberals […]

    • You Say You Want a Revolution - 04 Apr 2014
      posted in Big Gov & Columns & The Constitution

      We’ve watched as our constitutionally limited government grew until today it’s a leviathan running amok like Godzilla in Tokyo smashing things and scaring boy scouts. Our revolution changed the world. Our Declaration of Independence proclaims self-evident truths. That all men are created equal, they’re endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights, among these are life, […]

      posted in Big Gov & Big Parties & Columns

      The 2016 Presidential battles are beginning to take root.  Polls have been released, advisors are testing the waters.  The GOP wants a win.  It’s been too long.  They are faced, however, with a rising Tea Party faction who is aggravated with past GOP compromises and blunders on the United States’ most important issues: from war […]

    • Should GOP Conservatives Adjust Their Message for Blacks? - 26 Mar 2014
      posted in Civil Liberties & Columns

      Michael Brendan Dougherty wrote an article stating that the only way for conservatives to reach black voters is to drop their colorblind idealism. Dougherty wrote… “Conservatives in the GOP like to assail identity politics and tout their own ideology as one of color blindness. Sometimes this is stupidly marketed to black voters as a selling […]

    • Why the Tea Party’s Waning, Not Winning - 05 Mar 2014
      posted in Columns & Tea Party

      As the Tea Party celebrates its five-year anniversary, many commentators are asking whether the grassroots anti–Big Government movement is still relevant. In some ways, this seems a silly question. The Tea Party has been enormously successful in changing the terms of the national debate on issues such as debt and spending. And, while its favored […]

    • The Cultural War Against Christians - 03 Mar 2014
      posted in Arizona & Columns & Culture & Tea Party

      Arizona Governor Jan Brewer was right to veto SB1062, which would have amended the Arizona Religious Freedom Restoration Act. The bill, per most interpretations I’ve read, would have given broad discretion to business owners, because of their religious convictions, to refuse to do business with anyone associated with homosexual lifestyles. Religious freedom is about protection […]

      posted in Alerts & Big Gov

      Take Action! Submit your comments to the IRS before midnight opposing their new “rules” to silence conservatives! Dear Conservative, Today is the final day to submit your comments opposing the Internal Revenue Service’s new “rules” to silence conservatives. If adopted, the new IRS regulations would muzzle conservative and Christian 501(c)(4) organizations and prohibit them from […]

    • Can We Save the Soul of the GOP? - 25 Feb 2014
      posted in America First & Columns & Principles

      The “Republican” brand is severely tarnished. Currently just 25% of Americans identify themselves as “Republicans.” On the other hand, 38% of Americans identify themselves as “conservative,” which is more than any other ideological group by 15 points. These numbers are prompting a national conversation about how to “save the soul of the Republican Party” among […]

    • Ted Cruz and debt ceiling gamesmanship - 17 Feb 2014
      posted in Columns

      Once again, bitter feelings are being cast in the direction of Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz. With the House passing the “clean” debt ceiling bill and sending it to the Democrat controlled Senate, it was clear that this was the bill that was going to get passed and sent to the president. But Cruz didn’t […]

    • A Strong Breed of Men - 11 Feb 2014
      posted in Big Gov & Big Parties & Civil Liberties & Columns

      As most Americans are now painfully aware, our Constitution was not a perfect document, for there were certain powers granted to the government that should never have been granted. But if interpreted literally, it was a magnificent beginning because it valued freedom so highly. It was, and still is in conception and meaning, the greatest […]
