UPDATED Washington D.C. or Bust!
On Sunday I leave for my first trip to Washington, D.C.! I’ll act like a tourist/nerd/history geek and see everything I possibly can; but I’ve also been privileged to schedule meetings with some top Conservatives while I’m there and I’ll be attending one of the best Conservative conferences of the summer. Here are a few of the things I’ll be doing in D.C.: My two | Read More »
The “Third” Party We Need (It’s Not What You’re Thinking)
American politics is traditionally dominated by the constant battles between Republicans and Democrats, and as of late is being characterized by the failure of both sides to get things done. Because of this, I think we do need a third party. Not a third party like the Libertarians and “Green” Party; not a party that necessarily runs candidates for office with their letter following their | Read More »
“The Sheriff Without a Gun”
“When a man carries a gun all the time, the respect he thinks he’s getting might really be fear. So I don’t carry a gun because I don’t want the people of Mayberry to fear a gun. I’d rather they respect me.” One of my favorite TV shows is The Andy Griffith Show. When I heard of Andy Griffith’s death on the eve of Independence | Read More »
July 5th & Every Day After
Last night after the pool and fireworks, I watched Coming Home with my family and realized that the message behind Independence Day goes so much further than July 4th. That’s only one day a year that we set aside to commemorate the tremendous pride we have in our country– but for military families, the message their loved ones fight for overseas are prominent in their | Read More »
Your Country Needs You!
*The Supreme Court’s ruling on ObamaCare was definitely not what Conservatives were hoping for. ObamaCare is unconstitutional and even morally wrong in many of its provisions, and even though our Court has ruled it constitutional, I don’t believe it is beneficial if we continue to bask in the disappointment we felt on Thursday (and still feel today). I say this because we have no way | Read More »
[VIDEO] Racism Nonexistent in Fast & Furious
Al Sharpton and other Democrats are denying that AG Eric Holder did anything wrong in connection with the failed Operation Fast & Furious, and are instead suggesting that the investigation is racially motivated. These claims of racism are ridiculous, and this is why I feel that way:
ObamaCare: It’s Not a Tax…Oh Wait, It’s a Tax
This morning the Supreme Court ruled that ObamaCare, in its entirety, is indeed constitutional. The individual mandate was ruled constitutional by a 5-4 vote, with Chief Justice John Roberts the swing vote; however, it was ruled constitutional as a tax, not a “mandate”, which clearly goes against what President Obama tried to sell the American people. I do feel that this was a loss not | Read More »
Bringing Faith Back!
It’s no secret that our Founders held a deep respect for God; a majority of them were committed Christians and those who were not still believed in a Higher Power. There are countless quotes by these Founders that stress the emphasis they put on the role of faith in society. Now, two hundred years later, it seems we as a people have switched to the | Read More »
A New Level of Arrogance
Brian Terry’s family deserves answers. The American people deserve answers. Operation Fast & Furious gave U.S. weapons to drug cartels in Mexico; somehow this was justified because this way, we would “know where the guns were.” They were going to acquire weapons anyway, so someone inside some federal agency (we still don’t know which) got this program approved and running. Now, eighteen months after the | Read More »
No to Intervening in Another Proxy War
The violence in Syria is heating up, and lawmakers are taking positions on both sides of the conflict; some believe we should intervene for the sake of the Syrian people, who are being brutally murdered by the hundreds each day, while others adamantly believe that we should stay out of the conflict. I’m inclined to agree with the latter; Assad’s regime is supported by Russia | Read More »
