Republicans Join Together to Defend Religious Liberty!

Republicans Join Forces to Defend Religious Liberty!   Congressman Raul Labrador (R-ID) and Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) have joined together in an effort to reinforce rights that they shouldn’t have to be defending. The First Amendment has been under assault in recent days. Particularly the government (particularly the courts) has focused its efforts on tearing down our religious freedom. Well, there are some legislators who won’t let us lose our religious freedom without a fight.   The Read more […]

Regulations are Killing the American Economy

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) may at times seem like a modern day Don Quixote tilting at the windmills of government excess, but without idealistic men like him our nation may have already fallen into the trap of European socialism. Senator Lee has been a leader in one fight in particular – the effort to refine our regulatory system. Regulations are killing our nation – perhaps even faster than bad Democrat laws and politicians! Here’s what Lee recently said about the issue on his Facebook Read more […]

Ted Cruz Takes Aim At The RINOs

RINOs (Republicans In Name ONly) are about to be forced to identify themselves. “I think this is ridiculous.” – Kelly Ayotte (R) What is the point of being a leader if you are not willing to do what you tell your constituents you are going to do? If one campaigns on certain issues, one expects that you will follow thorough with those promises once you are elected. If, once you are elected, you fail to promote the promises you made, you have failed your electorate. That’s basic. If you have failed Read more […]

GOP Won’t Compromise on Tax Reform

Even corporate tax reform — one of the few legislative initiatives President Obama and a new Republican Congress could feasibly work together on — is considered unlikely under current political conditions by some Capitol Hill observers.

Why Republican Cowards Despise Cruz

“Former Rep. Steven LaTourette is a member in the establishment’s war on the Tea Party. His deceptively named ‘Defending Main Street’ PAC is being financed primarily by Wall Street and labor unions, which have contributed at least 20% to the group’s fundraising haul. In an appearance on MSNBC’s The Last Word on Tuesday, LaTourette said that Cruz was ‘reprehensible’ for forcing Republicans to go on the record to advance a bill to raise the debt ceiling without reducing spending.” – Tony Lee In Read more […]

Senator Mike Lee Humiliates Eric Holder

At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Eric Holder was asked by Senator Mike Lee to explain the Constitutional basis for executive orders, namely those such as the one issued by Obama to delay the employer mandate. Holder couldn’t think of any Constitutional basis and concluded that Obama is perhaps at the height of his Constitutional limit. The Washington Examiner reported: “I’ll be honest with you, I have not seen — I don’t remember looking at or having seen the analysis in some time, Read more […]

Why the Democrats are Scared Out of Their Minds

“The broad masses of a population are more amenable to the appeal of rhetoric than to any other force.” – Adolf Hitler It’s been said that rhetoric is the art of controlling the minds of men. Political rhetoric takes words and places them in just such a way as to make an idea appeal to the largest possible audience. It is vocabulary manipulation, and it is extremely effective. The Democrats have been using this strategy for as long as I can remember. Here’s the interesting part: rhetoric is Read more […]
