Myth: "Republicans also support Big Government - in defense spending"

Myth: “Republicans also support Big Government – in defense spending”

There is currently a myth being spread across America that Republicans also support Big Government, in the form of generous defense spending, and that this is Republicans’ sacred cow. Anti-defense liberals and libertarians falsely claim that Republicans cannot credibly call for federal spending cuts and for limited government unless they’re willing to significantly slash defense […]

Liberals Sound Good On Paper

Has anyone else noticed that all these Liberal policies always look good on paper and in theory, but never seem to work in the real world. I truly believe that this country is on the decline because of Liberal views and policies. Healthcare for all sounds great; I mean after all, who would not want […]

Labor Force Drop Outs are the Younger Workers

Labor Force Drop Outs are the Younger Workers

Young people in the US are not working. Unemployment for ages 16-19 is 23.5%, ages 20-24 is still a very high 11.8% (according to the BLS). This week Stuart Varney on FBN interviewed Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA. Turning Point is a group geared to reaching the high school and college age young adults […]

Election Aftermath - I've Just Decided To Not Have Children

Election Aftermath – I’ve Just Decided To Not Have Children

Shortly after the announcement was made that Ohio went to Obama, a friend tweeted this: If I had to point to something that worries me most about our current economy and cultural climate, it would be the sentiment expressed in this tweet. I talk about value systems regularly, in every venue of conversation that I […]

Taxation Without Participation

Taxation Without Participation

Michael Kinsley described a “gaffe” as anytime a politician is caught telling the truth. This is particularly accurate for Republicans and conservatives as is demonstrated by the reaction to Mitt Romney’s comment regarding Obama’s base. The setting was unfortunate — a $50,000–a–plate fundraiser — but the message was accurate. As he discussed campaign strategy — […]

Mother Jones Did Romney a Favor

Mother Jones Did Romney a Favor

One thing I’ve learned over the years is that truth is relative, especially in politics. While Mother Jones might be thinking they’ve really done Romney some major harm, I think they are sorely mistaken. First, let me point out what should have been bloody obvious from the start here – whoever got that video of […]

Understanding The Debt Crisis, But Simplified

Understanding The Debt Crisis, But Simplified

I am 60 years old, but I remember when I was a kid we all dreamed of becoming millionaires. Back then a millionaire was the ultimate goal even though we had no concept of what a million dollars actually was. I remember sitting with a bunch of my friends describing to each other what we […]

Should We Really Feel Sorry For The Poor?

Should We Really Feel Sorry For The Poor?

One of the things that I am criticized for (believe me there are many more) is when I make the statement that poor people are poor because they make themselves that way. Just like rich people are rich because they make themselves the way they are. (Well, except the ones that inherit their money) So […]

Cradle to Grave Suicide

Cradle to Grave Suicide

Alexis Tsipras, head of Greece’s Radical Left Coalition, declared that country’s commitment to austerity is over because voters have rejected those deals. “There is no way we will sneak back in again what the Greek people threw out”, Tsipras said. “This is an historic moment for the Left and the popular movement and a great […]

F**k The Constitution, Just Make Me Happy

Our Founding Fathers may have been the most thoughtful men in human history. To create a new government with the many checks and balances that are in place is the envy of the entire world. If there is any doubt of how great this country truly is, all you have to do is just look […]

Have we reversed the Constitution?

It’s pretty obvious at this point that our country is headed in the wrong direction.  And with a little perspective, it’s just as obvious why.  Over the last few decades, in many ways we have actually allowed our politicians to reverse the Constitution. Take a look: We no longer focus on what government can’t do […]

How Much Does The Government Really Have To Buy A Vote?

A break down of exactly how much does the government REALLY has to buy votes, who pays taxes, who does’t pay taxes, and how much each department spends. Bill Whittle calls Barack Obama’s $1 billion that he will spend to get re-elected “chump change” in comparison. These Big Government statistics are 22,000 times that amount… […]

Bob Beckel: Liberals Created A Dependent Society With Welfare

We live in a world of “Gotcha Journalism” that greases its wheels with quotes like the one in this video.  That is why I’m going to try to share it responsibly.  Bob Beckel, the “resident Liberal” at Fox News, made a startling comment today on The Five.  When briefly discussing entitlements, he said that Liberals […]

Why This Country Needs Scarlett O'Hara

Today unfortunately, we live in a society where we expect the government to take care of us, instead of us taking care of ourselves. For decades, little by little the entitlement mentality has become a way of life, and now we have a generation of Americans who feel everything is owed to them. And that’s […]
