(NaturalNews) In yet another example of how the federal bureaucracy was not established to aid and assist American liberty and entrepreneurship, a small-time grocer, who has his life savings wrapped up in his business, is now in danger of losing everything, compliments of Uncle Sam's Administrative State.

“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.”
– Thomas Jefferson –
It would appear as if our nations Founding Fathers were either much more realistic or just so much smarter than the current bunch we have in charge. Let's begin moving towards Thomas Jefferson's vision of a small government for a country that can do big things!
Focus on Liberty for the Person and Fr [...]
The number of Americans in poverty rose slightly last year to 46.5 million, according to US Census data, despite a stock market recovery. [...]
In this video, Senator Orin Hatch (R - UT) wonders if the Obama administration realizes that Congress is a Co-Equal Branch of Our Government.
Of course, with the preponderance of evidence recently (Benghazi, IRS Actions, Fast and Furious, the way Obamacare was passed, the DOJ and Phone Records), one must certainly wonder if they do.
Here is Senator Hatch talking about the hearings that WILL be held concerning the IRS, and the real possibility that we are losing rights and freedoms as we sp [...]
The government invests about $81 billion of your money in information technology each year. However, it doesn't get a good return with as much as $20 billion a year wasted. We can have better government, for less money, if we invest smarter. It's time to bring the IT revolution to the federal government.
Seriously folks, it's time to make our government stop squandering sooooo much money, each and every day!
When individuals display this type of behavior, they are forced into bankruptc [...]
George Bernard Shaw looks into the distance
“Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.”
– George Bernard Shaw –
It really is amazing the amount of risk (both personal and business) the Founding Fathers of The United States of America took to create this country... and the vast majority of us today, just take all this for granted. By forming this new government the way they did, they allowed the Person to be the centerpiece while still maint [...]

Hey and good to see you again! S.C. here, and I wanted to talk to you today about what politics in America has devolved into, otherwise known as the two party system. If you listen to the mainstream media outlets, most of the time they write stories that paint the third party candidates as people on the fringe of society or out and out idiots. (more…) [...]
Did you hear the latest out of Washington D.C. and our Government?
Timothy Geithner and Barack Obama discuss things, possibly even the upcoming debt ceiling issue!
Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner and the Obama administration is already pushing for a higher debt ceiling. Remember last year when we went through all the threats of a government shut-down, and Obama threatened (in an off-handed way) to withhold social security and veterans checks? Well, get ready for more of the [...]
Hi and welcome back.

Yes, in the race for the nomination to represent the Republican party in it's quest for the office of The President of The United States, yesterday was the day 10 states had their primaries or caucuses.

Portrait of Thomas Jefferson painted in 1800 by Rembrandt Peale
On March 04, 1801 Thomas Jefferson gave the first of his Presidential Inaugural addresses.
After listing some of the items the federal government is responsible for, then he asks, "With all these blessings, what more is necessary to make us a happy and a prosperous people?"
He then answers that question with "Still one thing more, fellow-citizens--a wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one anot [...]
Herman Cain is smiling because he is the man with a plan!
It is impossible for the media to ignore Herman Cain Any Longer!
After 3 consecutive straw poll wins (2 of them were blowouts!) and a viable plan to both raise revenue and cut our tax rates, Herman Cain is creating quite a problem for the mainstream media these days!
Have you given any consideration to Mr. Cain's tax and revenue plan? He calls it the 999 plan. "What does 999 stand for?", you may be asking yourself.
The p [...]
In the New Your Times online edition, yesterday (01 Oct, 2011) "Seeking Taxes, Romney Went After Business" (by Michael Barbaro) appeared, highlighting some of the ways Governor Romney's administration went about closing deficits in the Massachusetts state budget.
The basis of the article is that Romney went after "loopholes" that businesses in the state enjoyed and both Romney and most of the Democrats claimed was not right and not fair. To me, this points out one of the greatest issues wit [...]
Gandhi and Nehru together in 1929
"Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes." - Mahatma Gandhi
When you combine this idea with George Washington's warning against putting party before country, well it's not too hard to see that as a nation, the United States has veered dramatically from the course our founding father's set for the it.
They created a nice plan, including rules to run the government with, and the people we have elected, or allowe [...]

Here is a quick question for you.
Timothy Geithner and Barack Obama discuss things just hours before the Credit Downgrade
What U.S. President was in office when the United States credit rating was downgraded for the first time in history?
The answer is our current president! That's right, during the evening of 05 August, 2011, Standard & Poor's downgraded the U.S. credit rating from AAA to AA+.
This is what happens when you keep spending dramatically more money than you bring i [...]

"The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first." Thomas Jefferson
With all the debate these days about the debt limit and the "up and down" or the "clean" vote last night (01 June 2011) I thought this quote was quite relevant. Congress overwhelmingly voted to NOT increase the debt ce [...]
Well, it's finally happened. The Congressionally authorized debt limit for the U.S. has been reached today! How long can we keep the flag flying proudly when the country is in this severe of a predicament? What will Americas Next President do about the National Debt? (more…) [...]
