Energy Independence Will Die With The Keystone Pipeline

The Keystone Pipeline, a plan to bring oil and gas from the rich Canadian oil fields in the north of Alberta to the refineries in the American South, has been delayed by President Obama. Prime Minister Harper of Canada has said publicly that if America doesn’t want our energy, we’ll sell it to China. He wasn’t joking. I am a resident of British Columbia, Canada.

This pipeline would ship Canadian crude oil to China, India and Asia, and would be...

The Idea of ‘Let It Burn’ Government

We all know we’re in a tough spot as conservatives at the moment.  The most liberal President since FDR just won reelection, we’re approaching the fiscal cliff of expiring tax rates, and the Republican Party is purging the conservatives from key committees.

Aspiration in Immigration: A Solution

America’s immigration system is broken. I come at this from a unique angle because, as many of you know, I am Canadian. I’m proud of my country, and I have every right to be. I think Canada is the second-best country in the world. That being said, I want to join the country I consider the best in the world. I want to become an American.
