President Obama’s Plan for A Socialist One Party State

The last check and balance on President Obama is the Republican majority in the House of Representatives.  He has made clear that he intends to remove that check on his power in the 2014 elections.

Lessons From Obama’s Home State

Back in the 1980s, tourism officials in Illinois coined the phrase, “Illinois, you put me in a happy state,” as the sales pitch to would-be visitors to the Land of Lincoln.  Three decades later, President Obama’s home state is far from a happy state.  What’s happening in Illinois is a reminder of how destructive tax […]
