Will The New Green Economy Kill The American Dream For Millions Of People?

As Barack Obama and U.S. Senators John Kerry and Joe Lieberman continue to try to ramrod a “green economy bill” down the throats of the American people, many Americans are openly wondering what this new green economy is going to cost all of us.  After all, two new reports have just come out that clearly indicate that “climate change legislation” is really, really bad for an economy.  In fact, many are projecting that the cap and trade system that Barack Obama and the Democrats wish to impose on all of us will end up killing the American Dream for millions of people.  At a time when the U.S. economy is already coming apart at the seams, the last thing we need is another huge mountain of oppressive regulations heaped on to American businesses.  This is especially true considering the fact that global corporations have already shown that they will ship manufacturing jobs out of the United States at the drop of a hat.  The reality is that the new green economy is not going to be good for any of us, and the American people need to wake up to that fact.

10 Reasons Why The Rand Paul Victory In Kentucky Is So Important

Declaring that “we’ve come to take our government back”, Tea Party favorite Rand Paul, the son of U.S. Representative Ron Paul, soundly defeated Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson in a Republican primary fight for the U.S. Senate seat held by retiring Republican Senator Jim Bunning.  He will now face Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway, the winner of the Democratic primary, in the November election.  It is hard to understate just how important this victory is for the Tea Party movement.  The entire Republican establishment was behind Grayson and they tried desperately to get him enough support to win the primary.  But it did not work this time.  Usually when the Republican machine gets behind somebody, they have no problem winning a primary.  Could this be a signal that politics in America is changing?  Could this be a sign that the American people are so sick and tired of what is going on in Washington that they simply refuse to listen to the two big political machines (the Republicans and the Democrats) any longer?

5113 Warheads And Falling – America’s Rapidly Shrinking Nuclear Arsenal

Most Americans believe that the massive nuclear arsenal that the U.S. military accumulated during the Cold War is still sitting there today – silently protecting them as they pursue the American Dream.  But that is NOT the case.  In fact, the United States currently only has a small fraction of the nuclear warheads that it did during the 1960s and the 1970s, and Barack Obama wants to make further substantial cuts.  If you are an American, what you are about to read should seriously upset you.  The weapons that have protected our freedom since the end of World War II are rapidly being dismantled at a time when the geopolitical situation around the world is becoming increasingly unstable.  Iran is feverishly working on developing nuclear weapons, North Korea already has them and it is only a matter of time until terrorists get their hands on some, and yet Barack Obama keeps insisting that radical nuclear disarmament is a great idea and nobody out there (including the Republicans) is putting up much of an objection.

Why Arizona Got It Exactly Right

The state of Arizona is taking a ton of heat for the anti-illegal immigration law that they just passed.  Barack Obama is outraged and is directing his administration to look for ways to challenge the law.  The government of Mexico has issued a travel advisory for the entire state of Arizona.  Latino groups are promising unprecedented turnouts for the upcoming May Day protest marches.  There has even been graffiti popping up in Phoenix that is threatening to “burn this racist city” among other things.  But you know what?  The state of Arizona got it exactly right.  This is not about stopping legal immigrants who want to come in the “front door” and pursue the American Dream legally.  America will always need that kind of immigration.  No, this is about stopping the never-ending wave of serial criminals, gang members, drug dealers and economic parasites that have been endlessly parading unchecked into Arizona.  If the federal government was not going to act, then the state of Arizona had to.  Now other nearby states are studying Arizona’s new law and are considering implementing similar measures themselves.

The Health Care Bill Is Great For American Taxpayers – If You Like Being Punched In The Groin

Thanks to the health care “reform” bill passed by Congress and signed into law by Barack Obama, American taxpayers are about to be hit with the largest tax increase in the history of the United States.  According to an analysis by the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation the health care bill will generate $409.2 billion in additional taxes by 2019.  But there are also heavy fines for those who refuse to buy the health insurance mandated by the bill.  According to the Congressional Budget Office, the health care bill imposes approximately $69 billion in penalties for individuals and businesses who don’t meet mandates to purchase health insurance.  This will be the first time in the history of the United States that the federal government has ordered Americans citizens to buy a good or service.  But it is not just a small amount of money that the U.S. government is requiring all of us to spend.  In fact, the federal government will be mandating that ordinary Americans pay almost as much to private insurance companies as they do in federal taxes.  (Read More...)

Will The Coming 21% Cut In Medicare Payments Force Doctors To Boycott Medicare Patients?

Will the 21 percent cut in Medicare payments coming this month force many doctors to boycott Medicare patients in order to survive? That is a question that thousands of American doctors are pondering as the U.S. Congress deliberates whether or not to allow a 21 percent cut in Medicare payments to go into effect. In fact, the cuts were already supposed to go into effect, but the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has put a hold for 10 business days on physician Medicare claims, thus giving the U.S. Congress a little bit more time to act. It is thought the the U.S. Congress simply cannot allow these cuts to go into effect, but so far they have not acted. (Read More...)

A Mistake Of Historic Proportions – 11 Reasons Why America Should Have Elected Ron Paul Instead Of Barack Obama

It is more than one year since the American people selected Barack Obama as their leader, and with each passing day it is becoming increasingly clear why the American people should have elected Ron Paul instead.  The U.S. economy continues to collapse, the U.S. government is running up a record budget deficit, our borders are wide open, hatred for the United States is at an all-time high around the world and our individual liberties continue to be eroded as never before.  The American people are becoming increasingly frustrated by the socialist big-government solutions that the Obama administration and the Democrats are coming up with.  But the truth is that both the Republicans and the Democrats have been advocating bigger government, more spending, more debt and more globalism for years, and now we find ourselves on the edge of complete disaster.
