Our crushing $14 trillion national debt is as much a national security threat as it is an economic disaster. According to Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mike Mullen, “The most significant threat to our national security is our debt.” Secretary of Defense Robert Gates has said, “We can’t have a strong military if we have a weak economy.” Even Barack Obama said in 2006 as a Senator that “increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally.”
The irresponsible policies that the Obama Administration has instituted over the past two-and-a-half-years have hastened our descent into bankruptcy, put the fiscal well-being of future generations of Americans in jeopardy, and left us at the mercy of foreign creditors who do not have our best interests in mind.

Now more than ever, America needs a Commander-in-Chief who will act boldly to solve our financial crisis, but President Obama has not led when it comes to our national debt.

However, the strategy did not work, | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Sadly, it appears that New Hampshire may have muddied the GOP field, rather than clarifying it. Even though Kasich and Jeb do not have obvious paths forward to the nomination, they are going to convince themselves that they do, at least through Super Tuesday – and they will probably find donors who will indulge that belief. Somewhere, Donald Trump | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The GOP Establishment is bound to be looking at New Hampshire, a state where they perform well, seeing Donald Trump coming away with a major and distant first place, and weeping to themselves that their party has gone so terribly awry.
