Senators not Reading Bills? US Senator Speaks Out …

How refreshing it is to see a US senator speaking out against his own legislative body!  The Senate makes its own rules, and then routinely ignores them.  He also points out how the Senate is playing a shell game by moving money around to pay for various items, thus being disingenuous to the American people [...]

Who Are The Good People?

The following is a guest post by Cynthia Howerter, a new volunteer for Richmond Tea Party. This post originally ran May 7, 2012 on her blog, SOAR WITH EAGLES.

Tea Party Rebels

An excerpt from my op-ed "Tea Party Rebels" that ran in Tea Party Brief over the weekend: With Big-Government progressives taking over virtually every facet of American influence, including both major political parties, they have dramatically expanded the power of government at all levels. As a result, the Left now embodies everything they once despised [...]

If we stay engaged, we win

I’ve been telling people lately that the Big-Government machine, well-funded and gargantuan as it is, can’t ultimately defeat freedom-loving Americans, as long as we are principled, informed, and engaged. We have the numbers and the passion on our side. And why wouldn’t we? Our core principles of constitutionally limited government, fiscal responsibility, and free markets [...]

Limited Government – blessing or a curse?

So what’s wrong with a big government? That’s the question our critics ask. According to their logic, the purpose of any government is to provide for the general welfare of its citizens, which is exactly what the preamble of our Constitution says. Then, if that’s the case, our critics contend it’s only logical that the more [...]

Earmark Ban Defeated in Senate

No surprise there--the Senate is still controlled by Democrats pretending that recent election didn't happen. Eight Republicans voted against the ban as well, which also isn't surprising, considering the Republican Party is still populated with many Big Government believers who have no qualms about purchasing votes at taxpayer expense. Fortunately, the Republicans in the House DID vote to [...]

I Agree with President Obama

He says we can't go back to the failed policies of the past. He's right. Of course, those failed policies of the past are also the wildly failing policies of the present, all championed by him. From Reason TV: So today, vote for those candidates who love our Constitution and will advance limited government, and [...]
