Eric Cantor needs to hear from us on the debt ceiling

An excerpt from my latest post on We heard all kinds of doomsday prophesies from the Washington Spenders about how the world would literally end if America didn’t raise its debt ceiling in time. Yet when we reached it, all Treasury Secretary Geithner had to do was move some funds around to keep us [...]

Virtue and Accountability – What are they up to?

When television first came out there were so few shows that they didn’t start broadcasting until 9:00 in the morning, and by 10:00 p.m. they would go off the air. As more shows were produced they began broadcasting at 8:00 in the morning and would go off at midnight, but just before they would sign [...]

Engaging in peaceful debates – following the rule of law

Tea Party people are extremists who are anarchists, prone to violence and who don’t like democracy.  At least, that’s the way the media and many in Congress have tried to paint the entire Tea Party movement.  However, when unions physically stopped the Wisconsin Congress from conducting a democratic vote by democratically elected officials, shouting obscenities, [...]

Fiscal Responsibility – poisoning our economic lifeblood

Imagine going to a four-star restaurant and ordering the soup of the day, let's say it's chicken vegetable. In the kitchen the chef puts in the pot fresh vegetables and chunks of tender chicken and special seasonings. Then, as an added bonus he adds two drops of bleach. Thinking that something else is missing, he [...]

Limited Government – what kind of limits do we want on government?

When we say that we want limited government, exactly what kind of government are we asking for? The answer is: the kind of government that is contained in the Constitution. The Constitution itself sets forth the rules by which Congress, the President, and the Courts are to conduct themselves in addressing the needs of the [...]

Limited Government – what does that mean?

When the Tea Parties say they want limited or smaller government, many of our critics try to make it sound like we are against any form of government control. If that was true then the Tea party would be advocating anarchy. However, nothing could be farther from the truth. What we want is Constitutional government. [...]

The End of the Beginning?

The last not quite two years have been exciting.  The Tea Party movement has grown from protests and rallies and inundating Congress with phone calls, e-mails, and visits about pending legislation, to getting real fiscal conservatives elected to Congress.  We brought the foundational principles of Constitutionality and fiscal discipline and the issue of mounting debt [...]

Real Change

The following was submitted as a guest post by Conklin Mann III of Fleming Island, FL. ---- Barack H. Obama's successful presidential campaign was the highpoint in his presidency.
