With all the defects of our Constitution, whether general or particular, the comparison of our governments with those of Europe, is like a comparison of heaven and hell. England, like the earth, may be allowed to take the intermediate station. — Thomas Jefferson, Letter to J. Jones, 1787, 5356

Bureaucratic Red Tape Strangles Jobs

Adam Bitely

In a 245-172 vote in the House on July 26, the House passed H.R. 4078, the Red Tape Reduction and Small Business Job Creation Act. This legislation, if passed by the Senate and signed by the President, would stop the federal government from imposing many harmful regulations that cripple job creation until the unemployment rate dips below 6 percent. Unfortunately, Harry Reid will block this attempt at stopping Big Government from ever seeing the light of day in the Senate and Obama has promised to veto this bill should it ever reach his desk.

Owens’ Law of Oscillating Pyramids

Dr. Robert R. Owens

At the time of the American Revolution, there was no direct taxation. There was instead taxes on various transactions which in total added up to a miniscule percentage of their income. Today, for many it is now over 50%. How much corn are we willing to give to those we don’t trust to do things we don’t want? How long can this continue?

No matter who wins...

America: The GOP is Lying to You

Bob Ellis

This isn't a Democrat saying this. This isn't the "mainstream" media (pardon the redundancy in conjunction with the last sentence) saying this. This isn't even me--who witnessed so much duplicity, hypocrisy, corruption and liberalism within the "Republican" Party in the last four years that I can't carry the water for this pack of liars anymore--saying this.

Epidemic of Spirtual Ebola

Dave Daubenmire

The American Church is hemorrhaging. The foundation upon which all morality springs is cracking like an egg. If Christians can no longer recognize or defend the truth we can expect the bloodletting to continue. Only a super-sized moral tourniquet can stop the oozing from the body of America. Somewhere along the line we stopped thinking generationally.

Honoring Father and Mother

Dave Daubenmire

Have you heard of the Canary in the coal mine? You know it is that allusion to caged canaries that miners would carry down into the mineshafts with them. If dangerous gases such as methane or carbon monoxide leaked into that shaft, the gases would kill the canary before killing the miners. The death of the canary provided a warning to exit the tunnels immediately. Is there a canary in the coalmine for a country or for a society?

ObamaCare is Demonstrably Dishonest

Bill Wilson

Last week, the Supreme Court agreed to hear King v. Burwell — a case which exposes a fatal flaw in Obama's signature legislation. When Obamacare was drafted, the law's health care subsidies (and the taxes collected to pay for them) were explicitly confined to those states establishing their own health care exchanges. That's not a statement of opinion, either, it's written in black and white right there in the law — which expressly limits such subsidies to qualified plans enrolled "through an exchange established by the State."

Fundamentally Transforming America, One Community at at Time

Robert Romano

Let's just be blunt. If Congressional Republicans do not defund the imminent rulemaking, "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing," by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in the upcoming continuing resolution, they are utterly insane.

"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
