Vote, In Numbers Too Great to Ignore!

Today, I spent some time with Esther and Alan, laid-off workers from southwestern Virginia’s coal mining country. These Virginians, and many of their fellow miners, drove six hours to spend as long knocking doors in Henrico County. They not only know what’s at stake Tuesday… they live it. Esther and Alan are among 1,800 miners [...]

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.

Debt Clock Time Machine: Back to the Future?

Have you looked at the national debt clock lately? It has a handy “time machine” feature (top right corner) that is frightening in what it portends for our federal budget if we continue with our out-of-control federal spending. While 2010 looks pretty bad, with a national debt of $13.7 trillion, the clock projects $17.4 trillion in [...]

Congressional Members Avoiding We the People

Not that this is a surprise, but many congressional members aren’t holding town halls. They know We the People will show up and let them know what we think about all the liberty killing bills they’ve passed, and they don’t want any part of that.
