Federalism: An Answer to Gun Violence

Seventeen innocent children are dead in Florida. They are dead because man is fallen. We live in a world where evil exists, and it seeks to overwhelm those of us who have faith in something greater than ourselves. Americans should be praying fervently for the victims of this evil and for the wisdom to move forward. The founders of this country, though they could not foresee such atrocious acts as Parkland, were wise men. They left us a blueprint, a framework for a realistic approach to dealing with dozens of issues, including mass shootings and gun violence. This blueprint...

Rand Paul – Why 20 Trillion Matters

Senator Rand Paul has successfully filibustered the United States Senate and singlehandedly shutdown the government for a few minutes. Readers should note that this shutdown did not last, and the votes necessary to pass the budget have already been considered for the Senate.

Reports later showed that Bette Midler and others insinuated things about Rand’s neighbor, who brutally assaulted late last year.

This South American country is one in which our “well-meaning” liberal friends should keep in mind when pushing their politics. We know that the left and the Democratic Party tend push ideas and policies that near the...

No Deal? – The Congressional Stalemate

With hours until a federal government shutdown, congressional leaders have reached a stalemate. Once a shutdown incurs, the US economy will likely react negatively, and many ‘non-essential’ services will begin to close down. Probably one of the more dangerous aspects of a shutdown is that its impacts are progressive: the longer the shutdown lasts, the more money is lost. The Economic Impact Circa 2013 According to Josh Hicks at the Washington Post, the US economy may have lost approximately $24 Billion in economic output during the 2013 shutdown. The national parks lost $450,000.00 a day in revenue and the...
