Courtious Constitutionalism, Unwaivering Resolve

This is my first blog post, as well as my first day with the command center. Getting started, I read a current event dealing with homosexuality. I am no where near socially liberal, anymore than I am a religious Zealot. I was shocked, however, to see conservative Americans, using slurs and language that actually give the left leaning media reason to point to us and call us bigots and homophobes. The homosexual agenda is disturbing to me, however someone's right to be gay and not be harassed about it is just as important. It has always been my understanding that the Tea Party Movement was led by Constitution lovers that believe, according to the Declaration of Independence, that all men/women are created equal. It was my belief that the Tea Party wants limited government, fiscal responsibility, and liberty for all. Can we allow this movement to be compromised by becoming a variable "cheater pipe" to secure the bolts of Conservative Christians that exclude all views but theirs? I am a believer, and my faith is important to me, but my nation is a "Republic".  It is obvious that this nation was founded on Christian values, and to the core of average Americans, they are still important. They are still important to me, but in the media, we must not be ashamed of our faith, however, we can not try to shame non believers into believing. All this accomplishes is getting us branded as zealots, bigots, and homophobes. The liberal media is never going to accept us anymore than they are going to accept facts. Here is my overall point. Their only reason for having conservatives on their programs is to chomp at the bit waiting for us to say something that they can misconstrue, distort, and make us look foolish with. We the people must stay above the fray, being cultured, well spoken, and above reproach. If your anger for not feeling heard or represented has caused you to lash out on the forums with slurs, insults, and personal beliefs that may or may not be founded in fact, please examine your motives. I use this simple anagram to keep myself in check, and admittedly, sometimes I fall short as well, and wish to be held accountable if I do.

T.H.I.N.K.

Is what you are saying True?

Is what you are saying Helpful?

Is what you are saying Inspiring?

Is what you are saying Necessary?

Is what you are saying Kind?

Do we want real results? Or do we just want a forum in which to vent? Our venting is not changing this country back to the self reliant, powerful, and respected nation we once were. We must lead by example and always provide the best example possible. Yes you do have freedom of speech, for now, but with every liberty, responsibility is assumed, because you are an American, and a cut above. Thank you!

SICK: New Jersey Awarded $3.8 Million In Financial Aid To Illegal Aliens


 A local news report revealed that the state of New Jersey awarded $3.8 million in financial aid to illegal immigrants during the 2018-2019 school year.

According to a report from NJ.com, the state of New Jersey gave $3.8 million in financial aid to 749 illegal immigrant students in the last academic year. More than a quarter of the funding went to 328 illegal immigrants that attend Rutgers University.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed a law last year that allowed illegal immigrants to apply for financial aid. Prior to the signing, illegal immigrants were permitted to apply to pay in-state tuition at public universities but they were not eligible for financial aid.

Murphy, who supports the spending, hit back at Republican critics by arguing that giving financial aid to illegal immigrants is compatible with American values.

“I’d even invite any of those folks who have that attitude, beginning with our president, to come on into this room and allow me or any of us to say, ‘This is the United States of America,’” Murphy said at the time.

David J. Socolow, executive director of the state’s Higher Education Student Assistance Authority, defended the state’s decision to offer financial aid to illegal immigrants.

“This financial assistance offers these New Jersey students a life-changing opportunity,” Socolow said in a brief comment.“The successes of these first 513 students, who are now attending county colleges, state colleges and universities, and independent institutions around the state, will have a positive impact on countless additional lives.”

According to the report, there is currently no limit on the amount of illegal immigrant students that are permitted to receive financial aid from the state of New Jersey. State lawmakers forecast that they will spend approximately $5 million on financial aid for illegal immigrants each year.
