A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that…

Sarah Palin; America's Enduring Strength

By Sarah Palin

If you don’t like a person’s vision for the country, you’re free to debate that vision. If you don’t like their ideas, you’re free to propose better ideas.

But, especially within hours of a tragedy unfolding, journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn. That is reprehensible.

The Rahn Curve: Government vs. Growth

By George Noga

Economist Richard Rahn, the eponymous creator of the Rahn Curve, makes connections between the rate of economic growth and the size of government. The Rahn C urve suggests there is an optimal level of government spending (as a share of GDP) that maximizes the rate of economic growth.

As a corollary, once government exceeds this optimal share of GDP, the economy and everyone in it suffers; the more it exceeds it, the more everyone suffers.

The Liberal Media: Living In Another World

By Matthew Falconer

Ignoring the fact the gunmen was a mentally imbalanced individual, he was a self-professed liberal. But conservatives do not blame all liberals for this one man’s actions.

As Ronald Reagan said; ‎”We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.”

The Stone-Throwing AFL-CIO Boss Who Lives in a Glass House

As for heightened rhetoric, try this on for size; America is under seige by the far left, which is more powerful today than at any other time in our lifetime and if left unchecked, it has the very real potential to destroy man’s last best hope on earth.

And just as with any conflict, truth is the first casualty.

Republican Party Rejects Tea Party Yet Again; Rep. King Blasts Boehner

Make no mistake about it, this is a rejection of the tea party. Not only that, it’s also putting politics before the challenges this nation faces. Yet again!

Why is illegal imigration such a problem in America? It’s because the leadership of both parties refuse to get serious about the issue out of fear of alienating the Hispanic vote. And Speaker Boehner is making it clear that he has no intentions of changing things.

Tea party groups across the nation should be outraged over this decision. Where are the national groups who are always so eager to claim leadership of the movement? Tea Party Patriots? Tea Party Express? Tea Party Nation? Perhaps, too busy issuing attention getting statements to the press or appealing for donations…

Senate Starts Immigration Debate

The sponsor of legislation aimed at making it easier for Florida to weed out illegal immigrants told a newspaper Monday that he doubts an Arizona-style law will pass this year.

Bennett told the Miami Herald, “I might not even vote for it myself. There probably will not be an Arizona-immigration style bill that passes the Florida Senate.”
