The Constitution means what the delegates of the Philadelphia Convention and of the state ratifying conventions understood it to mean; not what we judges think it should mean. — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, American Enterprise Institute speech, Feb 16, 2001

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.

Kansas Senate race is a national election

Star Parker

Former Democrat House Speaker Tip O’Neill’s political wisdom that "All politics is local" has been a staple in political thinking for many years. But the truth of the matter is that, regarding elections for national office, politics is really, today, a national business.

President Obama

There’s No Shame in his Game!

A.J. Castellitto

Our founding fathers viewed government as a necessary evil. The Constitution was designed to protect and preserve the individual rights of the person. The founders ultimately wanted to form a government they could protect themselves from. An essential aspect of preserving individual liberty is too often overlooked in our day.

"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
