“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

CBS/NYT Poll: Most Americans Realize Obama Policies Moving Nation Toward Socialism

Health Care Repeal is Not Enough

Health Care Repeal is Not Enough

On March 21, when the Intolerable Act of 2010 was passed by the House of Representatives, calls for repeal began almost immediately. But we must do more than repeal it: we must repair the breaches and craft a layered defense that protects our freedom now and in the future.

Obama Bids Farewell to American Leadership in Space

President Obama says he is increasing NASA’s budget…but virtually eliminating anything to do with manned space flight. Our aging space shuttle program is to completely be shut down…with not only no replacement in sight, but no plans for a new replacement.

Barack Obama: Enemy Within

Barack Obama: Enemy Within

We have a president loath to acknowledge American exceptionalism. Indeed, the weight of the evidence suggests that our chief executive, through both word and deed and with malice aforethought, seeks to undermine – if not dismantle – that exceptionalism. At one time we properly called such activity anti-American, seditious or even – under certain circumstances – treasonous. Today we call it “progressive.”
