Speaker of the House John Boehner's apparent indignation that conservatives don't like what they're hearing about the latest sellout to the Democrats would be laughable if the subject weren't so serious. When we're cutting a paltry $22 billion from a deficit of a trillion or more, it's a drop in the bucket! We're cutting the annual deficit by a whopping 2.2%, and doing nothing about the $17 TRILLION in debt.
It is sad that in these times when the government can so easily be controlled by a mere plurality of interests, and where all the different so-called “checks and balances” provided by the Constitution fail to prevent something as blatantly destructive to American liberty as Obamacare from becoming law, there still is no escape route for those of us living on the mainland. To borrow a phrase from a Cuban refugee who was speaking to Ronald Reagan, “If we lose freedom here, there’s no place to escape to—this is the last stand on Earth.”
Marriage is under assault in the United States like never before. Who hasn't read the headlines about homosexual activists not only insisting on counterfeiting marriage, but trying to leverage the power of government to force Christians to participate in the counterfeiting of marriage. But homosexuals weren't the once who started the attack on marriage.
Leading House conservatives Mick Mulvaney (SC-5), Steve Scalise (LA-1), and Jim Jordan (OH-4) are rallying conservatives to demand that Speaker of the House John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor hold the line on spending. The conservative pushback comes as the details of a deal to fund the government negotiated between Republican House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan and Democratic Senator Patty Murray have begun leak.
At the foundation of every social order is a concept of law and government. For most of the history of our country this foundation was the Bible -- the Word of God -- including both the Old and New Testaments. Thus, the American view of law and government is founded on the Biblical view of law and government. This is explicitly made clear in the Declaration of Independence, which makes reference to the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God and The Supreme Judge of the World.
"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
