A Republican Dance of Treason?

                    By John Reed (about the author) When America elected her first African American President in 2008, millions across the world wept over the promise made by his election about the possibility for individual achievement in a democratic republic founded upon the ideal that all men are created equal and endowed with certain unalienable rights.   America, that most backward and racial of ...

Obama not a Sociaist

Obama not a Sociaist

            Is Obama a Socialist? By Tom Head, About.com Guide   Answer: Not by any definition of the term that mainstream socialists would consider acceptable. It's true that both the Bush and Obama administrations introduced government subsidies in industries that the government has not historically subsidized to the same extent, but this is not, strictly speaking, a socialist move because it does nothing to concentrate ...

Religious Conviction

Religious Conviction

  I’ve been avoiding this subject publicly. There are many who refuse to accept any responsibility to their maker, and many more that were not properly introduced. Some have been lured in to corrupted versions of reality. The rest of us are still learning. I write to the majority of Americans called Christians. We share the original Biblical source of information and direction. I’m not going to reference specific scripture here; you look it up.   There is great concern with ... Full Story

Romney Suffers From Pre-existing Positions

Romney Suffers From Pre-existing Positions

A Commentary By Froma Harrop in Rasmussen Reports Tuesday, September 11, 2012 What Mitt Romney truly believes is anybody's guess. Whether Romney as president would act on those beliefs is also a guess. And we can't rule out the possibility that he doesn't have any beliefs outside of religion and investment strategies. Why he's running for president remains unclear, though commander in chief looks impressive on a nametag. Asked over the weekend whether by killing Obamacare he would ... Full Story

Is President Obama a big spender?

Is President Obama a big spender?

The answer is a big yes and no. As Mark Twain said, “Figures don’t lie, but liars figure.” It is not exactly a case of “lying,” but rather a case of putting a spin on what the numbers mean. The two articles from Forbes Magazine presented below are excellent examples.     In “ Who Is The Smallest Government Spender Since Eisenhower?”  a May, 2012 article, Rick Ungar makes the case that it is Barack Obama. He includes a graph that shows the annualized growth ... Full Story
