An Open Letter to Ron Paul Supporters

By John Eberhard The United States is heading down a dangerous road. 50% of all U.S. households receive some kind of public assistance. Roughly the same percentage pay no taxes. Common sense says that that is mathematically unsustainable. But Democrats have bloated government spending and government borrowing to continue to fund unsustainable entitlements. And the […] Read more »

Get the Hell Out of My Life!

A close friend of mine told me the Republican candidates are not strong enough. I asked him what he meant by “strong enough.” “Well,” he said, “no one, except for the ocassional Newt outburst to a debate host, is stating our case strongly enough.” I said, “Are you saying there’s not enough emotion behind the […] Read more »

Subsidiarity…Big Word — Great Meaning!

I’m reading Imprimus, a publication of Hillsdale Collge. The article is about whether we need the Department of Education or not.

I’ll Go Ahead and Predict a Landslide

Was the election in Nov 2010 a fluke? Did the folks who voted a seismic shift in the House go back to their lives, hoping things will now just get better? Are most Americans unwilling to persevere in staying active, staying in touch, and most importantly, making the REST of the changes necessary to fix […] Read more »

Don’t They Get It?

The questions getting asked more and more these days are: do these guys not know that their methods produce horrible results? Do they not see the damage they create? Are they blind to the many previous (failed) efforts to apply their teachings and ideology in the real world? Do they…are they…don't they, the list of […] Read more »

When You’re Told ObamaCare is NOT Government Controlled Health Care

In an earlier post, I presented the above chart. Since that post, there's been a lot of discussion whether ObamaCare is "government control" of our health care system. And today I found a high resolution version of the chart. Some say, "Hey, there's no 'public option' so how could this possibly be government control of health […] Read more »

The Forgotten Man

  A friend of mine passed this video along to me and it inspired me to start another blog on this important subject.  It's becoming more and more obvious there are millions upon millions of Americans ready, eager, intent on returning this country to the core values upon which it was founded.  Folks used to […] Read more »

Thank you President Obama!

I know I touched on this in a previous post, but I wanted to take the time to thank President Obama again. Thank you for making clear what a "progressive" really looks like.
