For a start, here are 10 suggestions I came up with for the direction America should take.
Remember, it is US, the People that is the Government and we can make any changes we wish to make collectively showing unity for these United States of America.
Or have we forgot why we call ourselves the United States of America?
No Government, Country or power can take this away from the People, being United unless we allow it to happen.
The Peoples Agenda for… Continue

Guess what? I’m not interested in how unsavory others of BOTH parties have been, now or in the past. I’m interested in making the Republican Party the majority in all government positions and offices. After that’s done, I’ll take up the mantle of “Teddy Roosevelt reform” -- starting with the Democrat Party first!
Hey! It’s that fundamental and that important! Winning is everything!
All other opinions are “handholding” drivel. You can’t reform anything if you don’t have the… Continue

Well, I think Virginia has awoken!
On 27 Feburary 2009, numerous Tea Party's were held around the nation to rally against the now famous TARP and Stimulus bills passed by Congress, much to Americans distaste for them. Now the results of the medeling of Congress are starting to be revealed, Virginians statewide are starting to question these decisions and their implications on not only on our state but on our country and its future.… Continue

With no disrespect to this form, I want each of you look and really think of what's happening to America.
Americans do not care if it's a Red, Blue or whatever color you want to label a political group, but do care on having Representation that is equally represented with all views. And most importantly what is right for America and protecting our founding fathers principles and values.
It has been the political parties that have caused the distrust Americans have with our… Continue

Looking at words that begin in the first paragraph our U.S. Constitution and what I believe to be our founding fathers meaning.
“We the People” with one voice…..
“of these United States,” will stand together….
“in order to form a more perfect union,” leaving the current form of Government, have found the need for the People too…..
“establish justice, insure domestic tranquility,” due to the oppression and injustice we are now… Continue

Americans are totally disgusted with our political system and Representatives (employees) that have swayed from our founding fathers principles.
The Republican Party is equally as guilty in the way America's Government is run. And we, as their employers are also guilty in allowing our employees too much power and control and keep voting them back in office. WHY?
Over the years, both sides of the aisle have been competing for power and spend more time worrying and raising… Continue

James Taranto in his Best of the Web Today blog
at OnlineJournal.com reminds us of some of the new euphemisms being trotted out by the Administration these days. We have previously commented on enemy combatants becoming FOHs (friends of Hussein) but this seems like a good place to put them all together.
