Federal Spending is the Problem: Defense is Not! »

by George Landrith

With a long history of federal overspending and the recent explosion of more federal debt, it is obvious that the federal budget must be cut back to a reasonable size. We need an intervention.

On November 23, 2007, then candidate Barack Obama made a bold prediction about himself and how his mere election to the nation’s highest office would ease tensions in the Middle East.

Republicans Are Right, Fact-Checkers Wrong On Welfare »

Reform Rollback: Democrats and “fact-checkers” claim Republicans are lying when they say that the president wants to gut work requirements. Here’s why the GOP should press on.
