Since the DNC theme is centered around the "War on Women," I've put together some counter-arguments for Conservatives to use. I tested them on some blogs this afternoon with rather enjoyable success.
Hope you like them.…Continue
Whether you are interested in the USA's military and its ability to defend the country or just have not thought of it much, please read this article by Trevor Loudon (from New Zealand) who is sounding an alarm based on information and reports he is seeing. Is it possible that in four more years a main function of the the military might be to deal with global warming or other matter that the Founding Fathers would never have envisioned?

Thomas Sowell has offered this short but very insightful article titled "'Issues' or America" and comments on one of those old adages--cannot see the forest for the trees. He reminds us of the Constitution and only a few things that have been done to dismantle it.
Please read the article.

There is a C-Span.org program that shows former Justice Sandra Day O'Connor providing testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. The program is just under 1.5 hour and is quite interesting. Check out the hearing at:
There is a mention of a web site or educational program that Justice O'Connor is involved with to advance civics education in schools…Continue

I have heard many Christians express concerns about voting for Mitt Romney because he is Mormon. They certainly have this right, but I’d ask that they give me one chance to offer another view.
You see, I am a former Atheist, now a born again Evangelical Christian. My degree is in the Ministry. My favorite ministry is "Answers In Genesis" with Ken Ham. I am not a Mormon. But I offer the following points:
1. When Mormons cast millions of votes to help elect Reagan,…
The key link between freedom and prosperity is the right of the individual to own property.
Throughout history, no matter how oppressive the government, whenever the chains of slavery were loosened, the conditions of the individual and the country were improved.
The founding fathers believed private property to be a foundation (Bill of Rights Amendment V) and upon this foundation they built the other Rights, namely Life, Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness, choice…Continue

My response to a beloved relative who analyzed the election prospects in favor of Obama/Chainmaster. I, of course, am supporting the R/R Comeback Team:
Oh, my. If only I had more time. I do have time for this:
Left alone, Medicare goes bankrupt in 12 years according to Obama administration actuaries.…

Just a general interest item that I thought you all might enjoy:
IF you're in the mood tonight or soon, please enjoy our interviews tonight with GOP Chairman Ryan Call and Colorado State Senator extraordinaire, Shawn Mitchell. Frank Francone shares his insight on SB200, along with Senator Kevin Lundberg who is in for the entire show. LOT'S of fun, and…Continue

Congresswoman DeGette Only member of CO Delegation to Vote AGAINST Auditing the Fed
I am copying this from a FB post by the Republican candidate for Congressional District 1, Danny Stroud. He addresses his comments specifically to us in the "fringes" of Arapahoe County who are in CD1. I am one of them, and feel routinely ignored and unrepresented by the person who has held this office for way too long (going on 16 years).
Please look into Mr Stroud, as he most…Continue
Once again, the Left has been permitted to control the jargon, and the Right lets them get away with it.
There is a difference between outsourcing (delegating some non-core corporate activity to a company for which the activity is core) and off-shoring (sending core activity jobs to non-domestic locations to take advantage of lower costs of doing business). The obvious difference is that outsourcing can keep jobs in America (although not necessarily so), and off-shoring by…Continue
The Colorado public trustees for the 65 counties are seldom in the news. In fact, my impression was that the term was a nebulous description, but apparently it is actually a position that is in some instances appointed by the governor. The position has apparently come under some scrutiny as reported recently in the Denver Post.

Considering this week's dismal jobs report, Liberals, please answer this question:
Say a wealthy American has $10 million for building a business. To build in America, he/she faces sky-high costs in:
1. Corporate tax rate
2. EPA compliance
3. Labor costs
4. Regulatory burdens
5. Lawsuit protection
This wealthy American must compete in a global marketplace against foreign competitors having none of these disadvantages, so here's my question: WHAT'S…

There are numerous articles being published analyzing the June 2012 Supreme Court decision on PPACA (Obamacare). Most of them focus either on how we were betrayed by Chief Justice Roberts, or are contorted arguments what good can be gleaned from the decision. I thought this item from Heritage took a slightly different tack, and would be useful to share with those who cling to the belief that PPACA is actually good for America. Essentially, it lays out the trail of broken promises…Continue

I hope none of you were counting on the Supreme Court to "save" us from the PPACA. I had a wish, but, upon reflection, was only disappointed, not surprised, that the Supreme Court forgot its responsibility to the Constitution above all else. Clarity is our friend, however, and we certainly should be clear on the fact that ALL branches of our federal government have been infected by the progressive virus. If nothing else, this decision should demonstrate clearly that our job is not…Continue

For those looking for ammunition to eliminate the Department of Education, the following link presents an excellent history of the Progressive's takeover of our schools and of the involvement of the NEA.
Today, many of us watched in stunned horror as 9 people in Supreme Court robes enabled the greatest government power grab we've ever seen.
But looking forward to this November's election, I think we need people to stop thinking about the Group of 9, and start worrying about the Group of 15. I refer to the 15-member panel that President Obama will soon staff to "control costs" by rationing our healthcare.
Think about it. How many people like the idea of an unelected…
Is there any doubt now who has the power in this nation and is there any doubt that Liberty has been struck another blow with this Supreme Court decision of the Affordable Health Care Act and now you have heard from the Highest Court in the Land that your government can force you to buy anything they want you to. This ruling will become the new Roe vs, Wade like decision and it will become the darling of any Industry that wants to insure it makes a profit. To those…Continue
I just re-discovered this as I am going through some old (but not too old) email. The Heritage Foundation has put together what might be considered a concordance of the U.S. Constitution. This looks to be a very useful tool, free to use on the Internet. First, a link to the article introducing the tool, and then a link to the tool itself.…Continue
On the 15 June 2012 we witnessed how the 2 candidates for President for the democrat and republican parties showed their socialist agenda. In the following website pages you can read how these men where trying to dangle the carrot that the electorate might like to consume in hope (in the words of Stalin) the useful idiots might just bite(vote) for it.…Continue
