For several years Americans have experienced a serious abuse of our political process and the U.S. Constitution. We have three branches of the federal government: legislative, executive and judicial, established by our Founding Fathers to create a balance of power to prevent abuse. [...]
It should come as no surprise to most thinking people that Wal-Mart, like many other large employers, recently announced it would be suspending health-care benefits for part-time workers. This is really a double hit on workers: In many cases, they previously had full-time jobs with 40-hour workweeks before being reduced to part-time status and now losing their health benefits.
The “Affordable Care Act,” which probably seems less affordable to most Americans as we find out more about it, is t [...]
The Founding Fathers warned of a Federal Government bent on usurping the power, rights, and privacy of its States and citizens. In the last nine years, the Federal Government has expanded the scope of its power at an alarming rate, while blatantly ignoring the Constitution. [...]
A new Rasmussen poll shows just how disillusioned Americans have become with the direction of their own country, over four and a half years since President Obama took office. According to Rasmussen, barely a third of US voters think the nation's Founding Fathers would view the United States as a success today. 49 percent think [...] [...]

“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 [...]
Fully 71 percent of Americans say the Founding Fathers would be ashamed of the direction the country has taken in recent years, a new survey from Gallup indicated. [...]
On 04 June, 2013, the House Ways and Means Committee held hearings on the IRS targeting of conservative groups.
Among those testifying was Becky Gerritson of the Wetumpka (Alabama) Tea Party. Her speech is one of the more Honest, Heart Felt, Intelligent and Well Spoken speeches I've heard come from any congressional committee hearing.
She explained what her organization is, why it was begun, when they applied for their 501 c4 status, the highlights (or lowlights if you prefer) of the cor [...]
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 [...]
Hello and Welcome to the Presidential News Page for Friday, September 21, 2012. With only 46 days until the U.S. Presidential Election, the news stories are coming in fast and furiously and the allegations and lies are flying all over the place! Let's get right to them!

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…) [...]
Obama giving a weekly speech in May of 2011
Have you noticed our current President (Barack Obama) seems to think nearly everything can be fixed with a speech? No real details given, just some fairly general speech about what the overall picture should be or what he want's in general.
Well, one only needs to go (once again) to the founding fathers of this country to find something that addresses this phenomenon. This gem by Ben Franklin says it perfectly. "Wise men talk because they h [...]
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 [...]

"...I know nothing more important to inculcate into the minds of young people than the wisdom, the honor, and the blessed comfort of living within their income..."
In other words, the most important part of life is to live within your means! If you want to improve your lifestyle, first increase your income, then enjoy your new lifestyle.
This is part of a much larger speech he gave at the time, but it sums up his, and mos [...]

"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 [...]
