The Youth Vote
President Obama did a phenomenal job of getting out the youth vote in 2008. Many conservatives and even some liberals were thinking that a repeat performance was next to impossible; however, he brought back the same young people as 2008 and added quite a few more. In the 2012 election, people aged 18-29 increased their total of the electorate and went for President Obama 67%-30% | Read More »
Closing Arguments from the Next Generation
America is buit on dreams. The pilgrims came to America on the Mayflower with the dream of religious liberty. The founders fought a Revolution with the dream of a free nation. A Civil War was fought with the dream of equality for all. The social turbulence of the 1960s was directed with the dream of ending racial segregation once and for all. “One Man’s Dream” | Read More »
Don’t Be a Victim
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” – Ronald Reagan President Reagan’s words are often cited by people on both sides of the aisle in their efforts to accomplish their ideals and goals for America. Today’s young | 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 »
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 »
[POLL] Should anyone be given amnesty?
Given President Obama’s recent decision to once again overlook the checks and balances here in America, what do you think: Should amnesty be granted to certain people, or should everyone have to go through the same citizenship process? Should illegals who are minors or who meet “certain criteria” be granted amnesty?
Thoughts on Gay Marriage
Gay marriage has been the hot topic for the last few days, following the completion of President Obama’s “evolving” views on the issue. While his announcement of support for gay marriage came as a surprise to no one, it has still served to spark a media uproar concerning the public’s views on it. 31 states have already been given the opportunity to legalize gay marriage– | Read More »
The Case for a Strong Congress
I think many Americans have been focusing on an issue this primary season that, although very important, has not been the core issue that should have dominated our thinking. Electability has been a huge argument for Mitt Romney as he battled his Republican challengers; Romney is more electable, pundits would say, but Santorum has real convictions. Which would you rather have? Apparently, electability won out | Read More »
