Impeachment: Why Should We Allow…?

Bob Ellis

Democrats have, predictably, pooh-poohed the idea of impeaching our lawless president Barack Obama. We expect that. But more than a few "Republicans" also don't want to impeach President Obama.

Mike Rounds Tries to Fix His Big Mistake

Bob Ellis

Former Governor and now U.S. Senate Candidate Mike Rounds screwed up in 2010, and how he's busy trying to put a bandaid on his mistake.

Now, thanks to Mike Rounds, Debbie Martines' family must endure parole hearings every eight months to keep him locked up.

David Whitney

Bob Ellis

The Christian Coalition emailed me about their 2014 voter guides today. I can't speak to all of them, but the one for South Dakota is flawed and incomplete...an apparent trend among voter guides and endorsements from conservative groups this year.

The Larceny Is Larger than You Think!

Michael Peroutka

Last week the mayor of Houston enraged many Christians when the city subpoenaed the sermons of some Houston area pastors. This got me to thinking…Suppose you wake up tomorrow morning, walk downstairs and find a thief in your living room rifling through your furniture.

We Need a Leaner, Smarter Justice System

Ken Connor

We need a sensible, pragmatic, and effective sentencing process. As with so many failed policies hanging around America's neck like so many millstones, the current system is a result of politics being put ahead of practical wisdom.

"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
