In 2013, Social Security ran a $71 billion deficit. This means there have been four years of consecutive cash-flow deficits, which means that the inflow is less than the outflow. According to the 2014 annual report from the programs’ trustees, the combined 75-year unfunded obligation of the Social Security and Disability Insurance Trust Funds (referred to collectively as the OASDI Trust Fund) is $13.4 trillion.
There are seven states including Maryland with language in their constitutions that prohibits people who do not believe in God from holding public office. And now, according to a recent New York Times article by Laurie Goodstein, a coalition of nonbelievers including atheists, agnostics, humanists and freethinkers, led and primarily funded by atheist Todd Stiefel, says it is time to get rid of these atheist bans because they are discriminatory, offensive and unconstitutional.
Darwin's theory of evolution provided the extra bit of fuel needed to propel Karl's godless Marxism (or Blind Naturalism). Overall, a strong case can be made for the powerful impact Darwin's ideas have had on the embrace and promotion of Atheism both then and now. But how did Charles Darwin come upon his 'evidence'? How much of his theory was actually founded on sound scientific principles?
American Exceptionalism. The very term evokes highly charged emotions backed by two very distinct schools of thought diametrically opposed to one another. Rather than adding yet another opinion to the mix, let’s search for principles in our founding documents, ask some questions and define a couple of terms.
Where are the policies and common sense solutions that help Americans and secure future generations? I'm concerned about my children, their well-being, and their future. Thankfully, our faith is with us wherever we go!
As Godless liberalism has gained ascendancy in America and our heritage has been whitewashed, many Americans don't know some important facts about our nation's Christian history. Ben Shapiro at the Revolting Truth shares some important history about Thanksgiving--so important, there wouldn't have BEEN a first Thanksgiving without these truths.
Our Declaration of Independence says the Creator God endowed us with Rights, and that the purpose of government is to “secure” the Rights God gave us. What does this mean? How does a government go about “securing” God given rights?
The Jewish faith has bestowed many wondrous divine blessings upon the world. Among them is, of course, the Sabbath day. It should be with a sense of horror and utter distress that the world should know that Muslim Arabs in Jerusalem deliberately and maliciously desecrate the peace on the eve of every Jewish Sabbath.
The latest polls indicate that 70% of Americans believe that our country is headed in the wrong direction. Those that claim to understand the polls would have us believe there will be a major change of political party control as a result. But that doesn’t mean a major change in the direction of the country. If recent history is any indicator, the political party in control does not accurately reflect the true desires of the people. A change in political party control similarly will have little to do with changing the country’s direction.

"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
