Do We Need A Gas Tax Hike to Repair Our Aging Infrastructure?

gas-43798_1280 Democrats in most states are calling for a gas tax hike in order to pay for road repairs and construction.

The Slippery Slope to Obergefell: The Same-Sex Marriage Bait and Switch

Bait-and-Switch If you thought same-sex marriage was the terminal goal for homosexual activists, you haven’t been paying attention. The homosexual agenda has always employed a great deal of bait and switch. In other words, it baits supporters with a false narrative, then reveals its true nature only after it is too late—or when the false narrative has outlived its usefulness.Inevitably, when you start to talk about the collateral effects of the march to homosexual “equality,” someone will start blathering Read more [...]

In Pennsylvania Two Candidates Going Opposite Directions

70 "Pro-Choice" Democrats Want to Force You to Pay for Abortions

all in abortion You’ve seen the bumper stickers that read, “Don’t like abortions? Don’t have one.” It’s the same argument they use to support same-sex marriage. Making things like gay marriage and abortion legal, while you may not like those things, doesn’t harm anyone, as they say. If you don’t like gay marriage, then don’t get married to someone of the same sex. It’s as simple as that. Sometimes I respond with another bumper sticker slogan, “Don’t like slavery? Don’t own one.”They Read more [...]

Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin said the following about freedom of religion as it pertains to the Amendment: "Certainly the First Amendment says that in institutions of faith that there is absolute power to, you know, to observe deeply held religious beliefs.
