There was an Op-Ed in today's Watertown Daily Times entitled On the fringes.
It stated that the party's endorsed candidates are "squirming" to explain what they are about.
I'm not squirming. I know what I stand for.
Limited government bound by the limits as set forth in the Constitution.
The Rule of Law where the government doesn't choose which laws to enforce and which laws to…

There is a move afoot for a Convention of States for proposing amendments to the Constitution. The ruling class doesn't uphold the Constitution now. Will they uphold it if we propose more amendments? I doubt it.
I would only support 4 amendments.
1. Repeal the 16th Amendment and abolish the IRS. Go to a flat or fair tax system.
2. Repeal the 17th Amendment and put that key check on federal power back in the hands of the states. If a senator appointed by their respective state…

I can't sit idle and silent on the great "budget deal" reached in Congress.
So, they've agreed to cut $23 billion from the proposed growth in government spending over the next 10 years.
The federal budget is $3.8 Trillion, with a deficit of $642 Billion. Total debt is #17.3 Trillion, 2013 annual revenues were $2.8 Trillion.
Put into terms of a household, minus a bunch of zeros:
If your family was $170,000 in…

I was asked of my faith and its origins. I am a Christian but don't normally discuss my faith here. But, because I was asked, I'll address it briefly.
I believe that if one believes in God, they MUST believe in Freedom and Liberty. If you believe in God, then you believe that God made you. If you believe that God made you, then He made you and put you on this earth to accomplish something. He put you here with a purpose.

If you haven't seen this, Harvard conducted a survey of "Millennials" to determine their impressions on Washington, especially Obamacare.
In order to best interpret my impressions of the survey, please note the following statement taken from the article: “Overcoming today's bitter partisanship and governmental gridlock is essential to showing Millennials and all our citizens that Washington, D.C.…

Rumors of the Tea Party’s demise are greatly exaggerated.
Before, during and after the government shutdown, the Tea Party was dragged through the mud, chastised, called names and even told that our movement should die.
This all came about because the representatives we elected on the promise to fight Obamacare dared to do so. The irony is now that the Affordable Care Act is beginning to be implemented, the whole country is beginning to see that the Tea Party was right all…Continue
America was never intended to have a professional political ruling class. But, that is exactly what we have now. Guys like Harry Reid, Dianne Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, and our other elected representatives have become so disconnected from We the People they feel exempt from the effects of the laws they pass. They believe they are above the law itself. You'll hear them speak of "the American people" as if we are a separate entity,…Continue
I love this country. I want my children and yours to grow up proud to be Americans where they can achieve their highest aspirations and become their highest, best selves. I want a country that is not buried in debt that stifles economic growth and devalues our currency. I believe in a country where everyone has the same opportunities, but not limited by government to the same outcome.
I believe that in world affairs, we should be respected by our friends and rightfully feared by…
I've been watching Obamacare's roll-out turn into Obama's unraveling. Or at least it should be. But the Left will survive whatever we say about Obamacare. Like it did with Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS and NSA scandals too.
Obama's approval rating is tanking. His lies about his lies about Obamacare even have the democrats worried. Millions have lost their health insurance, lost their jobs, trading full time jobs for part time jobs and are really worried about the…

No other economic system has brought more people out of poverty, provided for the health and well-being of millions and raised the standard of living more societies than capitalism. When people cooperate to fulfill their own self interest, they all benefit.
Capitalism and freedom are inextricably linked. When the Declaration of Independence was first drafted it read "We hold these truths…Continue
There is no wonder why the vast majority of Americans are opposed to military action in Syria when the possible outcomes are so damaging:
1. The US military attacks with cruise missiles which does some damage, Assad stays in power, their civil war continues as it has. Why attack, no change? Except with no international support, the credibility of the US is severely damaged. Bad outcome. US forces are put in harm's way and we…
Never mind that they are killing us. Never mnd that they preach Sharia law that is diametrically opposed to Western principles. Never mind they vandalized Britain's war memorials.
We have no right to criticize?

Following the Islamic terror attack where a British Soldier was killed in the streets, Muslims are now defacing British war memorials in a park in London.
This post needs to be read after reading the last one, "Obama's Saudi Connection."
I didn't write either article. They weren't written by the same author or for the same audience, but when taken together, it makes better sense.

What do the murders of four Americans in Benghazi have to do with…Continue

This and the next post make more sense in context when the information is considered together. Then it makes perfect, scary sense.
From Obama's Marxist indoctrination from Frank Marshall Davis to the help from Valerie Jarett's father-in-law and help from the Muslim world that propelled Obama to the presidency.
Watch for the next post as well.

According to research at the British National Archives, Barack Sr. had a son on Aug 4, 1961.
In May 2012, someone conducted a search of the Archives using the search term “Obama” and found that an unnamed son of Obama Sr. was born in Kenya in 1961. Since the guy in the White House is the only known son of Obama Sr. born after 1960 and before 1963 when Kenya became officially independent from the UK, it is reasonable for us to conclude that Barack Jr. is that unnamed son of Obama Sr.…Continue
