I am going to describe a candidate for you right now, and I want you to think about whether or not you would support him.
This candidate was for the individual mandate that served as the model for "ObamaCare." He was originally for the TARP bank bailouts before he was against them. He joined with Nancy Pelosi to promote the anti-business "global warming" agenda.
He slammed Paul Ryan's budget plan as "extreme," calling it "right wing social engineering."

With that title I trust I have your attention on an important issue to those who support liberty over tyranny. This week the Senate, with 44 Republicans including Marco Rubio, passed the Defense Authorization Bill which allows for unlimited detention of American Citizens accused of supporting terrorism.
This means that I, an American citizen, could be accused of supporting Al-Qaeda by either the President or Attorney General, arrested and shipped to Guantanamo Bay…Continue

Today, the Senator’s office received many emails and phone calls voicing concerns over the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012. There have been many assertions made about these provisions, some of which could not be further from the truth. It just so happens these outlandish accusations are from the ACLU and their allies in Congress.
First off, this bill does not allow the US military to supplant your local…

This is one of many ways this thing could go. Under the Senate plan NE Florida loses some representation.
Here are the constitutional requirements of redistricting.

I know I don’t have to tell you, but politicians often say one thing but do the complete opposite -- especially if they think no one is looking.
Newt Gingrich is the poster child for these sort of “flexible” principles.
I’ve been around the block a few times (I’m about to start my 20th year as a gun rights lobbyist) and dealt with literally thousands of candidates and politicians, but no Republican politician has managed to support and vote for anti-gun legislation and…Continue

The Presidential primaries are fast approaching and the anxiety is building among the conservatives trying to decide on their “primary” choice for the Republican nominee for President. Mitt Romney keeps bubbling up as a constant top contender in the polls. Romney’s challengers keep changing from week to week, according to the polls. We conservatives have a “gut” feeling that Romney is not a true conservative yet we conservatives are fearful that our choice of a true…Continue

I called my daughter to work out the details of our Thanksgiving weekend. She has a new baby and it appears we may not be able to head out the door at 4:00 AM Friday morning for our traditional outing. We really never buy anything except breakfast and a couple of Starbucks before 10:00 AM yet it has become a tradition for us.
Although we can’t enjoy this yearly outing, we planned a new tradition and we will have breakfast together at a normal hour and head to a…Continue

In this video, John F. McManus anaylzes the voting record and actions of former Congressman Newt Gingrich, revealing that Gingrich is not the conservative he portrays himself to be. Very informative.

This is going to be a very interesting case to watch as we have a very similiar happening here in Jacksonville. We have in the past had our city council override the voice of the people. We may need to watch this and see what happens as no one should be stopped from attempting to recall someone legally nor should thier freedom of speech be called into question. It does not matter what church you go to as it does not eliminate your right to freedom of speech as an individual…Continue

There are 2 articles posted, and it is important you read both. One is from Bloomberg explaining what is being done and by whom etc. The second is written by an attorney who specializes in securities law and according to him, BOA is moving these bad assets(derivatives) to their FDIC insured unit which will make the American people responsible for the loses on these bad investments (who will bail us out when the dollar goes by the way side over things like this?). We need to…Continue
