Others are loyal to the thrones in State Governments. These Loyalists remain loyal to tax and spend, government welfare, corrupt and dishonest state and federal governments. They remain loyal career politicians who talk a great talk, but fail miserably when walking the walk…these are Loyalists!!Details
Here’s a great article from last week’s Houston Chronicle, reminding us all why we need a government in the first place. Men, no matter how noble today, can be corrupted in the snake pit known as Washington DC. We can even look to FDR himself in this respect. While governor of New York, Roosevelt touted…Details
There really is nothing new under the sun…
Have we forgotten? Already? This — is what freedom looks like. Do we really have to learn this lesson again? The hard way? Not if we renew the Tenth Amendment.
