  • ObamaCare, The NSA, Pizza, and YOU!

    Now that Obamacare has rolled out and with the NSA exposed of its data collection program, can you imagine the state of our healthcare system and privacy when you’re simply ordering a pizza? Not to be an alarmist, but this can of course devolve into something dangerous to our freedoms — just go to your …

  • Responding to Obama’s Economic Speech

    President Obama recently began a string of speeches focused on economic policy at Knox College in Illinois. His first speech, riddled with collectivism, central planning, and misguided economics is worth rebutting as many of the talking points will likely be adopted by Democratic leaders.

  • Economic Straight Talking

    In the most recent addition to his weekly column Texas Straight Talk, Congressman Ron Paul snaps Obamacare enthusiasts back to economic reality. Dr. Paul makes it known that the extensive price tag accompanying the healthcare reform bill will only hasten the disastrous ruin of the nation’s economy. True reform would come in the form of policymakers embracing …
