“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

Don’t Bring Back Slavery to America

Don't Bring Back Slavery to America

As the states’ lawsuit against the imposition of the unconstitutional ObamaCare works its way through the appeals process, Senator Ron Paul (R-KY) hit the nail on the head concerning the abomination that is ObamaCare during a hearing in the Senate HELP Subcommittee on Primary Health and Aging today.

EPA Oppression Oozes Into America’s Waters

EPA Oppression Oozes Into America's Waters

In a well-produced brochure touted as its Clean Water Framework, the Obama Administration last week announced its updated and revised policies governing the Nation’s Waters. Included in the initiatives it discusses is “updated draft guidance regarding Clean Water Act (CWA) jurisdiction.” Those of us now familiar with the Administration’s attempts to use the EPA as a vehicle for circumventing the wishes of Congress and the Courts naturally fear something far less wholesome.
