GOP Midterm Vision

The midterm elections are less than 70 days away. In order to get voters to the polls, where's the GOP's vision for America's future?

There's no doubt that conservative principles work. Just take a look at what is happening on the state level. Even The New York Times recently wrote, “Californians have moved to Colorado and Nevada. Massachusetts natives have moved to New Hampshire. New Yorkers have moved to North Carolina and Virginia — and, of course, have continued moving to Florida. Over the last few decades, residents of many traditionally liberal states have moved to states that were once more conservative.”

The problem is that liberals move to these conservative states and bring their liberal ideals with them, thereby changing the essence of what made those states so attractive to being with: low taxes, lower regulations, more job opportunities.

Obama Goes It Alone on Climate Change

President Obama is at it again.

He is trying to solidify international limits on carbon emissions that would apply to the United States, and he wants to bypass the Senate in order to do so.

Obama wants to pursue a “politically binding” U.N. accord on climate change, which would sidestep any “legally binding” agreement by U.S. lawmakers.

“The Times reported that while the agreement would not have the full force of a treaty, it would 'name and shame' countries into cutting fossil fuel emissions.”

So much for the rule of law and checks and balances. We now have a president who gets to decide which policies and legislation he'd like to implement, and he just goes and does it himself.

Obama has brought us to a constitutional tipping point. We must be concerned that our president is asserting this much power at the expense of checks and balances and the integrity of our system of government.
