The Campaign Financing Quandary – a Solution

The Campaign Financing Quandary – a Solution

Last year, the Tea Party decided it would not endorse any of the Republican candidates for President. It seemed like the right decision at the time. Watching the GOP debates and primaries over the last few months, you might question whether or not that was a wise decision.

What we have today is four good men killing one another to see who will survive long enough to win the party’s nomination. The only reason Romney is the front-runner is because he and the PACs that support him have millions more dollars than the other candidates.
You’ll recall that Gingrich surged ahead of the others in Iowa shortly before the caucuses. Then Romney’s PAC and other candidates ran millions of dollars worth of ads and nearly destroyed Gingrich’s ability to stay in the race. If not for that, Gingrich may have won Iowa and would have gone to New Hampshire in a much stronger position.

The Flaw Our Founders Failed to Foresee

The Flaw Our Founders Failed to Foresee
You can see the perversion of America’s Constitution taking place right before your eyes. It may soon reach a crisis point. Could America’s founders have foreseen this?
 
As genius as our founders were in building safeguards into the Constitution, how could they have envisioned what is now happening to America—the deliberate perversion of the Constitution and the outright gaming of every pillar of our republic—judicial, economic, social, religious, educational, and even political.
 
It sounded so good to them back then. It would become the greatest leap forward for mankind the world had ever known. How radical. Imagine—voting people into government office who would actually represent the people who voted them into office—and if the representatives proved untrustworthy, the voting citizenry could just vote them out in the next election by voting someone else in. Foolproof, or so they thought.

American Exceptionalism

American Exceptionalism

Whether or not you knew Steve Jobs, you can’t help but feel a sense of loss for the entire country. Why? He represents that part of America—the entrepreneur, the risk taker, the spirit—that so many on the Left want to replace or destroy.

In his 2005 Stanford Commencement Address, Steve Jobs discussed his views on life and death, akin to what author Walker Percy had written about decades ago. Steve said,

“If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.”

Who are America’s “workers”?

Who are America’s “workers”?

Did you ever wonder why union leaders constantly hit you over the head with how hard they’re fighting for “workers” and the rights of “the worker”?

Yet union membership is barely 7% of private sector jobs.

If you work for a company as a non-union employee, aren’t you still a “worker”?

In a minute I’ll tell you how this fits in with the “dirty little secret” politicians don’t want you to know about. Unions are just one piece of it.

We’ve been duped by the rhetoric of labor unions far too long now. With the help of liberal media and many career politicians, they would have the country believe that unions, and onlyunions, have the best interests of workers in mind. What they are engaged in is the class warfare espoused by most liberals.

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka makes the news a lot now that he has an ally in the White House. He even brags about how often he talks to the President.

Earlier this month, both Trumka and Hoffa created quite a stir in the media. When asked, Trumka refused to denounce the vitriolic rhetoric that his fellow union leader, Teamsters President James Hoffa, espoused in a speech on Labor Day.

It is uncanny how much those two labor leaders look alike, which reminds me of the often-violent history of the labor movement, especially in its infancy when unions often resorted to violence to protect their members and the gains they’d made for them, and whenever they felt threatened. It seems logical that physically big men, the strongest and the toughest men, would rise to leadership positions.

By the 1950s, America discovered that corruption and organized crime ran wild within unions. Afterward, their influence in America declined dramatically. Despite this, most people agree that unions were a force for good in those long-ago days when manufacturers ruled our economy.

Do unions march in lockstep with liberals, progressives, and Democrats to Saul Alinsky’s book,Rules for Radicals? Ever since Glenn Beck exposed this as liberals’ true agenda on his Fox Newsshows, it seems to many Americans that they are all working in unison.

This is why I believe unions use the media to engage in class-warfare tactics, to constantly drum the term “workers” into our heads at every opportunity. The truth is that unions need the support of the other 92% of America to justify their existence. The only workers the unions really care about are the ones who pay union dues which feed the fat, bloated salaries of union leaders.

But, they’re not satisfied. They must protect and preserve what they have. The only way to stay relevant in today’s world is to grow. The best way to grow, in their minds, is to convince the vast majority of the country that they’re “fighting for you”. (Ever hear a politician use that phrase?)

In reality, they just want you to add to their bloated coffers so they can manipulate you into voting for political candidates who will in turn allow the unions to gain more entitlements from you, the taxpayer.

And if unions comprise little more than 7% of the private sector labor force, where do union leaders get off saying they’re looking out for you?

Here’s what’s really scary though—unions have gained a whopping, nearly 40%, foothold in public sector jobs. Ever wonder why government jobs pay so much more than comparable private sector jobs?

Makes you think about why the Democrats want to grow government, doesn’t it? The alliance between unions and politicians is just one piece of the puzzle. It fits in with the “dirty little secret” I promised to disclose to you that politicians don’t want you to know:

Hope For Our Country

Hope For Our Country

As I prepare to leave on a long-overdue vacation–a backpacking trip to a favorite wilderness area in the Colorado Rocky Mountains–I go knowing that there is still much for me to accomplish. But, while I’m in the mountains I want to leave you with something positive: 3 young siblings (Erika, Delaney, and Zachary) singing our National Anthem as originally written, right in their own living room–No instruments, no microphones, no special effects.
