Wow, lots is going on on Capitol Hill. To Summarize:
John Boehner purge some retail conservatives. Why do I call them that? Everyone picks their topics and hammers it home to feed their grassroots. Different parts of the Country have different characteristics and interests and the Representatives themselves have their personalities thrown in the mix. What is most important is that they…Continue

November 8, 2012
Dear Member of Congress:
We the undersigned organizations, representing millions of Americans dedicated to fiscal responsibility, urge you stand firm and hold the line on the budget sequester set forth in the Budget Control Act of 2011. With the federal…Continue

Scott Walker won because he actually cut govt and union control. We retained much of the Tea Party gains and gained more limited government intiatives at the State level and seats in the House and Senate (welcome Ted Cruz!). Now we must demand candidates at all levels that will do the same. Big Government GOP lost big. http://www.redstate.com/2012/11/07/status-quo-ante/ …Continue

The left has come out swing at the Vice Presidential pick of Paul Ryan. Below find a good review of what Paul Ryan has done while in Congress along with the progressive Media Matter's opposition research.
In response to the left's attack of his fondness for Ayn Rand, given he is a Catholic he can more accurately be defined as a person who believes in God, Natural Law. Founding principles and Ayn…Continue

You didn't read the title incorrectly. That is Barney Frank to all who are horrified by Dodd/Frank. I personally support an action to overturn this unconstitutional beaurocratic expansion and intervention that institutionalizes bailouts.
However, as a native of Washington DC who sees the political money laundering in EVERY budget item, I gladly join this bi-partisan effort in urging our Representatives to support the Mulvaney-Frank Amendment that maintains base military…Continue

The Fallacious Argument of Barak Obama.
Obama argues that fascism (Cronyism) is a reason for small businesses to pay more tax. Only Fascism (Crony Capitalism thru Usurpation of State, Local and Individual responsibilities directly or indirectly thru "private companies" harms the real job creators NOT the "political entrepreneurs", the professional rent seekers.
Unsubsidized small business owners always pay forward as mentors. The first part of what Obama said…Continue

The GOP is talking replacing Obamacare with unconstitutional expansion of healthcare subsidies thru tax deductions and funding of more redistribution thru healthcare exchanges for folks who can afford their own health insurance coverage. This is another unconstitutional manipulation of the tax code and State and individual subsidy respectively that harm the American economy and People.…Continue
How bad is the Highway Bill? Steve Moore at the WSJ writes:
"Congress is expected to approve as early as today a $120 billion highway bill that compromises nearly every budget principle Republicans say they believe in. It's a bipartisan budget heist with billions of dollars of budget gimmicks that are likely to infuriate Tea Party activists and other fiscal conservative voters.
In order to avoid confrontation with the Senate and to get the highway pork rolling…Continue

What wasn't challenged in this Obamacare suit was Federal usurpation of individual rights and responsibilities and the compulsion to particpate in ANY entitlement (Social Security, Medicare, Obamacare). Entitlements are all unconstituional and America would be better off without them as seen in places that have personal social security accounts and regulated free market medical and insurance …

Fascism (govt control of the economy thru private companies) is not conservative much less Constitutional and is outright rejected in the Republican pledge.
Republicans who act exactly like Democrats in spending are saying they must to get reelected but the facts don't support it. See here "Tax Cuts for the Rich are Bad. Subsidies for the Rich are Good",…Continue

Entitlements are NOT guarenteed and hence they can and WILL be reformed and privatized either now, while we have an opportunity to supplement them or later when we are too feable to defend ourselves and have no additional funds to derive either income and access to medical care outside the debased and bankrupt govt program.
We could do a lump sum payout that funds a minimal safety for social security income and premium for healthcare for everyone now recieving it and on a sliding…

Take a close look at the below legislation that establishes State Healthcare Exchanges, a means of redistributing the cost of folks who have pre-existing conditions from diet induce diabetes and smokers to cancer patients who can afford their own coverage but lobby to transfer their costs to others. This is a Trojan Horse dressed up as Freedom and NO acceptable compromise.
It sounds ideal until you realize, buried deep within it is another socialist idea and an expansion of…Continue

The below is a "must read" email on Greece sent to Morton Blackwell of the Leadership Institute from a young Greek who interned there last year.

Greeks voted against reality. They want to stay in the Euro and not pay their debts. It is supreme irony that the New York Times should so clearly communicate the delusion and desperation the people are functioning under. They are in retreat rather than confronting reality and articulate a just way to implement necessary cuts for their own people. If they don't grow up, Europe will have to force them to grow up.…Continue
