He therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who, so far as his power and influence extend, will not suffer a man to be chosen into any office of power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man. We must not conclude merely upon a man’s haranguing upon liberty, and using the charming sound, that he is fit to be trusted with the liberties of his country. — Samuel Adams

Unions are Communist Tools

Bob Ellis

I love it when Leftists are honest (it's so rare, it makes a very special treat). This video from an Occupy DC meeting recently shows former Amalgamated Transit Union local 689 president Mike Golash admitting that the goal of today's unions are to promote communism and overturn our free market system.

Don’t raise the minimum wage

Star Parker

The late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan famously observed that "Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts." It's an admonition not taken particularly seriously by today's political left. It embraces, extols and advocates ideas and policies based on what it wishes were true, regardless of how often and how consistently the ideas have been proven wrong. Take, for instance, the minimum wage.

Signs ObamaCare May Quash Self-Insurance for Small Businesses

Guest Author

Imagine that, in order to increase competition among grocery stores, the government created local farmers’ markets all across the country. Anyone could sell food within these farmers’ markets — including the grocery stores. But when the grocery stores refused to participate, the government enacted regulations to force them to do so. Thus, what was meant to encourage competition instead became the means of suppressing it.

US House Defends Union Secret Ballot

Rick Manning

The U.S. House of Representatives took aim at the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) this past week by voting to prohibit the Obama-run labor board from using any funds to sue any state on the question of secret ballot elections. The House action was led by Representative Jeff Duncan (R-SC) in response to the NLRB’s litigation against the states of South Dakota and Arizona, two of four states where voters overwhelmingly approved state constitutional amendments protecting workers rights to secret ballot union elections.

Best Marketing for a Small Business

David John Marotta

For a small business, marketing and advertising seeks an answer to the question "How will prospective customers find me?" People today no longer reply to direct mail. They don't peruse the phone book. They use television, newspaper, magazines and other traditional media much less. In fact, they don't even ask their friends in person. They use Google or they ask their online social contacts. As a result, most small businesses would benefit from enhancing their website presence by blogging and social media connections.

Why Nativity Scenes Matter in the Public Square

Doug Carter

When Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, he explained that our freedoms come from God. “All men are created equal,” he says, and “they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” A nativity display on government property reminds us that all humans have unalienable rights- rights which cannot legitimately be taken away- because these rights come from God.

Bush Paved Way for Obama Executive Abuse

Robert Romano

To save American car companies in 2008, then-President George W. Bush opted to use $17 billion from the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), which had been enacted to extend loans to financial institutions caught in the mortgage backed securities meltdown. There was nothing in the law that had allowed the bailout funds to be used for auto manufacturers. The Administration just made it up.

Congress Allows Obama to Slap Them With Cuba

Rick Manning

It only took a couple of days for the ink to dry on Congress' decision to fund the Obama administration's objectives for the rest of the year before it came back to bite them. The choice to fund all of the government for the next nine months, besides the Department of Homeland Security, means that Congress has little recourse to rein in Obama's Cuban bailout.

It is Time for a Christian Values Party

Dave Daubenmire

This is the way the American political system works. Democrats/liberals are the counterweight to Republicans/conservatives. The constant teetering gives the impression of movement, but the status quo rarely changes. This has never been more evident than what has occurred in Congress since Obama was ‘handed his hat’ in the mid-term elections; except nothing has really changed. The teeter has tottered to Republican control of the Congress, yet the policies that Obama has pushed forward still remain in place.

The Purpose of the Church

Michael Day

Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in California has given us the idea of the purpose driven church and the purpose driven life. So, what are “the five basic fundamentals” of the Christian faith? Where did they come from?

"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
