A large portion of our citizens, who will not believe, even on the evidence of facts, that any public evils exist, or are impending. They deride the apprehensions of those who foresee, that licentiousness will prove, as it ever has proved, fatal to liberty. — Fisher Ames

Racial politics may determine who controls Senate in 2016

Star Parker

It is no accident that rhetoric about race has been ramping up at a time when racial politics can be the key determinant for control of the Senate this year. Can racism really be as rampant in America as all the current rhetoric implies?


When Christians are Hypocrites

Bradlee Dean

Scripture tells us, “He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked” (1 John 2:6). Clearly, some people are not walking their talk. The famous preacher Billy Sunday stated, “Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes you an automobile.” Oh how right he was.


This Enemy Administration

Jim Bowman

How is it that Obama’s climate change/global warming tiffs always take place decades from now? Amazing when one compares our nightly weather flubs for the next day. Now, couple that with his present day efforts to make sex as carefree and cost effective as possible. There you have a sampling of his pressing agenda. Combined with homosexual equality, lowered tuition costs and equal pay for women, other than those working in his administration, one can readily see that here is a “take charge,” “leave no stone unturned,” “the buck stops here” type of chief executive.


Defense of Liberty is Still No Vice

Rick Manning

The 50th anniversary of Barry Goldwater's clarion call for liberty acceptance speech for the Republican nomination passed this week. In a modern world where politicians talk, but their words are hollow, listening to Goldwater's message a half a century later is like a drink of fresh water. But the words were no less scary to politicians less than a year from President Kennedy's assassination.


Freedom Index: How Does Your Rep Measure Up?

Bob Ellis

A friend reminded me yesterday that the latest Freedom Index is out. You can see it in both pdf and an online version. The Freedom Index "rates congressmen based on their adherence to constitutional principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, national sovereignty, and a traditional foreign policy of avoiding foreign entanglements. "

Report: Liberals Created Illegal Immigration Influx…and Americans Know It

Bob Ellis

As is too often the case these days, if you want to learn anything about what is really going on in the United States, you have to look to sources other than the "mainstream" media in America. In addition to having to look to "new media" source, sometimes it takes a look outside the United States altogether.

Have Some Compassion for America

Michael Day

While immigrants of previous generations worked hard to become inculcated as Americans, an opposite trend has developed. The number of illegal immigrants (people who simply walk across the border) has become so great, no one really knows how many there are. Those who come from Spanish-speaking nations aren’t as motivated as their legal predecessors to learn the English language, obey American laws or “melt” into our American culture.

The Wilderness Wanderings

David Whitney

It gives me hope that vast sections of our land hate what is being done to America. It gives great encouragement to see that vast stretches of our land do not embrace the socialist destruction of our republic; and many who agree with Ronald Reagan when he said, “Government is not the answer to the problem, it is the problem.”


What is America’s Only Hope?

David Pepe

What more does one have to read to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we (America) are at the end nationally and globally. When the world’s only nation - at present - which was founded on the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God, has rejected and turned their back on Almighty God and His moral absolutes, what hope is there – not just for the U.S. but for the world?


Government in the Business of Picking Winners and Losers

Nathan Mehrens

While I have met very few voters who enjoy paying taxes, I’ve met even fewer who believe the tax code should only apply to some of us. When presented with the facts—instead of misleading rhetoric—most voters believe in fair play and want every business to have a shot to compete in the free market without the government picking winners and losers.


Lies, Damned Lies, and Missing Hard Drives

Ken Connor

If ever a federal agency has made ineptitude into an art form, it has to be the IRS. After months of stonewalling and grandstanding and Fifth Amendment privilege-pleading before congressional committees, Lois Lerner and the IRS are now the subject of a federal lawsuit. In response to charges that they unfairly impeded the tax-exempt application of the organization "True the Vote," for political reasons, the IRS is invoking "the dog ate my homework" defense.

GOP Establishment: We Do Big Government Better

Bob Ellis

Among the Republicans inside-the-Beltway, there's no desire to fight for a smaller government. There's an acceptance of what is, and they claim it's rooted in this is what the American people are voting for.


"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
