As of today, fourteen states have joined a legal challenge to the constitutionality of the health care takeover signed into law by President Obama. This challenge, and the legal actions to come that will be brought by other states, represent the last stand in the defense of states’ rights in the battle over health care.
Many commentators are busy trying to color these legal actions as mere political theatre. Unfortunately, President Obama, Speaker Pelosi and Leader Reid made sure the… Continue

When I look back at our history over the past 50-60 years, I found it interesting that the generations before me, simply dropped the ball. During the sixties and seventies, the left was the one holding sit-in's and protest aginst opression, removal of christian values from our schools etc... Sure, some of the things that were fought for had merit (like equal rights for all). Removing God from our schools and public functions was the start of this transformation our country has taken. The… Continue

Sunday's vote in the House on the so called Healthcare bill should be the beginning of our fight to restore freedom and common sense. The fight will continue in the Senate where Dems will try to pass a reconciliation bill filled with fixes to the healthcare bill signed by Obama. Republicans will hold Dems accountable for their vote watching for any abuse for the reconciliation process.
Thirty-eight states have filed or are planning to file… Continue

Yes, I am upset that the national health care bill was signed into law.
But that is only a symptom of a greater problem, in my opinion. It is my opinion that the greater problem is the transfer of power from the people to the central government. As we continue to "grow government" at an unprecidented pace, we are also seeing that many of our representatives and senators in Washington, DC have forgotten who is "the boss".
WE, the people are! While the health care… Continue

One of the biggest issues up against the GOP (IN MY OPINION ) is the same one that is hurting Washington
all over. People feel disconnected and unheard.
Not one individual I have spoken to believes in either party. Tea party people are very popular because they are in unison and going place to place with an ear not just a voice.
Third parties are going to pull from GOP votes and split them. As long as the Dems and liberals stick together they have a shot at the numbers and the… Continue

March 21, 2010 will not soon be forgotten in the hearts and minds of many. There are those who feel as if some victory was achieved for their cause.There are also those of us who mourn for the loss of states rights, individual rights and are truly fearful for what this means for us, our children and generations to come. I am saddened and my gut is wrenching at the mere thought of the atrocities my money will be used… Continue

While President Obama and the Democrats in Congress spent the past year laying plans to ram a health bill through Congress that would raise taxes on small businesses and put the brakes on our economy, millions of Americans lost their jobs and found themselves in the unemployment line.
It is shameful that President Obama and his Democrat allies in Congress neglected jobs and the economy during their cynical push to take over this nation’s health care. Yet there are two more lost jobs… Continue

Hmmm...tenth Amendment “forced participation of the State’s executive in the actual administration of a federal program,” Oh that's why the IRS is policing our Health Care...I bet a constitutional lawyer had a hand in the Health Care Bill. Wait wasn't our President a constitutional lawyer? I must be paranoid. I'll blame it on my condition, you know I have a pre-existing condition...yea, I'm a women.

The only way we are going to change what is happening in our country is to continue marching and calling our representatives as we push honest people to run for office. We must gain control of our house and senate to keep our country from going down as Obama smiles and claps.

During the debate last night in the U.S. House over the federal takeover of health care, lots of talking points about pre-existing conditions were trotted out by Democrats on the House floor. Nancy Pelosi even claimed during the debate that once the health bill was enacted just being a woman would no “no longer be considered a pre-existing condition.”
What the Democrats didn’t talk about was the new pre-existing conditions that they were voting to impose on American small… Continue

Read this and tell me what is another word for misrepresent...and the most of the media is either oblivious, uninformed (isn't that their job...to inform), or in collusion to obscure the fact!

Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee released a startling report
yesterday that every American should know about in advance of the Sunday ‘showdown’ vote on health care in the U.S. House.
The report focuses on the Individual Mandate Tax (IMT) proposed in the Democrats’ health care legislation. Under this provision, Democrats make the IRS the chief enforcer for a new government-run… Continue

Earlier in the health care debate, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave Republicans in Congress just hours to read a thousand page, trillion dollar health care bill before voting on it.
Now, according to news reports
yesterday, she is laying plans to skip the trouble of voting on the bill altogether. By using a procedural trick called ‘deem and pass,’ Nancy Pelosi is setting the stage to… Continue

On the Sunday news shows yesterday, Congressional leaders and aides to President Obama took to the airwaves to declare that they would push their deeply flawed health care proposal into law this week.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is floating plans to bend the rules
in an attempt to avoid voting for the Senate Democrats’ government-run health care experiment. The Democratic leadership is trying to round up a… Continue

President Obama kicked this week off with the beginning of a road show to push his health care takeover. On Monday he traveled to Pennsylvania to sell his health plan, and the White House has another stop scheduled for this afternoon in Saint Louis.
Yet in the very states President Obama is visiting to push health care, it is jobs and the economy that the people are most concerned about. This public relations blitz is yet another illustration of the tone deafness of the Obama… Continue

International Women’s Day has a checkered history. It was first observed in 1909 by the Socialist Party of America. Over the years, the day has been used to rally for causes from workers’ rights to peace movements to feminism.
Today International Women’s Day has a different tone around the world. In some countries it is celebrated like Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day as an opportunity to honor the women in one’s life by giving flowers or gifts. But in the U.S., this often-overlooked… Continue
