"What are y'all doing about reducing the size of government and lowering taxes?" Plus, Famous Political Quotes!

The question, "What are y'all doing about reducing the size of government and lowering taxes?" was recently posed to the Republican Party of Texas. Thank you for pressing the question. For myself, over 14 years of participation in and observation of The Republican Party of Texas, suggests that a very possible answer is that there will be much gesticulating and clamor, all to boil down in finality to little more than rhetoric and platform resolutions.   Read more »

Health Care Plans Post-Passage

There is a legal case that has been filed by Attorneys General of so far 15 states. Obviously, the law defies the constitutional rights of both the states and their citizens, in its Medicaid mandates to states and IRS enforced mandate to individuals to buy a health insurance plan, the parameters of which are in fact defined by the federal government.   Read more »

Conservatism Reloaded

In college I was a fierce Texas hold 'em player. Still it wasn't at the tables that I learned one of life's greatest lessons, that a loaded gun beats a full house any day. Political warfare has positioned conservatives with a royal flush since we can point back to our Founding Fathers, the Constitution, history and how the American way has led to our rise as the alpha country in the world.   Read more »

Please Focus on The Big Issue, Now!: Can Anything Of The Constitution Be Saved, And If So, HOW?!
