Our public servants crunch numbers and flush founding principles and the values of their law-abiding, traditional-minded constituents down the toilet. With not nearly enough jobs to go around and state and local budgets buckling under massive debt (and let’s not forget ever-increasing health care costs), self-serving politicians are placing party before country, with Democrats, at least, sharp enough not to destroy themselves by empowering the other side.
When the statist is confronted with truth, he feigns outrage then goes on a fret-offensive. The liberal protects his status-woe with a house of cards and his two favorite plays are ‘The Covet Card’ – ‘four legs good, two legs bad,’ and ‘The Race Card’. Sadly, the left isn’t alone in this game; there are “shiny, happy” Christians who, when confronted with duty and discipleship, play “The Gospel Card.” What is “The Gospel Card?”
The President Obama dinner invite to Republicans might give hope to them that the president is at least listening and considering a compromise that doesn't involve it all being his way or else, but I wouldn't get too hopeful, if I were them. Truthfully, it is simply a good thing I'm not a politician.
The so-called “right” has been capitulating to anti-American socialists/communists who attempt to force their agendas on the American people. Rand Paul voted in favor of confirming Chuck Hagel; Ron Paul filed complaints with the U.N. against his own supporters; 100 Republicans are petitioning to back homosexual marriage as the Supreme Court looks at the issue this month; and eight Republican governors have betrayed the people and have come out in support of Obamacare. Nowadays, America’s “right” is as corrupt and destructive as the “left.”
The Republican Party says it wants to hear from you grassroots Republicans out there. The party has launched a new website, GrowthOpportunityProject.com, to get your input on what the GOP should be doing. Yes, I realize you're probably skeptical that they'd ever listen to someone who actually believes in Republican principles and values. But give it a try anyway--speak your mind!
A poll conducted by former Clinton advisor Stanley Greenberg (so take it with a grain of salt) found Republicans are losing credibility with a broad spectrum of voters. This story comes on the heels of a gathering of Republicans in Williamsburg, Virginia to discuss why nobody believes in the GOP anymore (hint: maybe because you jackass RINOs act like you don't believe in Republican values and principles anymore).
As a a 24/7 member and a big Rush fan for many years, one thing that has always bothered me about Rush is his "eternal optimism" ideology which seems to always get in the way of the REALITY of this nation's future. The issue is with Rush's optimistic appraisal that NEVER sees outside the end of this age and NEVER will face the REALITY of a world without an America.
Are we a nation ruled by laws, or has our government been taken over by a group of modern-day marquis and baronettes who simply pretend to govern, while robbing us blind? On this week's Afterburner, Bill Whittle likens the recent "fiscal cliff" crisis to kabuki theater. So how can one person come out on top in such a system? Find out.
Our Founding Fathers repeatedly warned that the greatest threat to our freedom isn’t foreign enemies, but our own government, which is why they put the power to govern in our hands. But we’ve given over that power to career politicians, who today are as smug and arrogant as any royal family or tyrant has ever been. In fact, they barely try to hide their shameful acts anymore, because they’re counting on us to keep ignoring what they’re up to.
It used to be that one had to be proven guilty, but now it seems that the radicals of this new society think they can throw a mess of poo out there and state it's up to the person in the line of fire to prove the falsehood against him or her is not true, or it should be assumed to be true because someone said and he or she or they couldn't (or didn't) prove otherwise. Well, that's unless it involves their sweet heart fellow radicals. Then it doesn't count.Next Page »
"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
