From The Weekly Standard, By DANIEL HALPER, Oct 26, 2012 • New data compiled by the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee shows that, last year, the United States spent over $60,000 to support welfare programs per each household that is in poverty. The calculations are based on data from the Census, the Office of Management and Budget, and the Congressional Research Services.
I hope you will watch this video, then watch it again. Is this what you want for your children and grandchildren?
Notice the people who voted for Obamacare do not have to live (or die) with this plan.

Today the Washington Post ran an article written by N.C. Aizenman about what I believe amounts to tacit collusion between officials from the state’s biggest counties.
The Washington Post article stated that, “For years, Texas’s six most populous counties, as well as some smaller localities, have offered free [emphasis added] or low-cost health care for uninsured residents with incomes as much as three times the federal poverty level, or about $57,000 [emphasis added] for a family of three. The cost of the programs: about $2 billion a year.”
From The Washington Post, By N.C. Aizenman, Published: August 26, 2012 - SAN ANTONIO —Local officials in Texas are discussing whether to band together to expand Medicaid coverage in some of the state’s biggest counties, making an end run around Gov. Rick Perry’s opposition to the expanded program included in President Obama’s health-care law.
From KirkCameron.com, by Kirk Cameron, August 16, 2012 - America is facing a crisis so severe that many people are beginning to compare our cultural deterioration to the fall of the mighty Roman Empire. A survey of the symptoms that led to Rome’s demise, which parallels America’s downward trends, should be a wakeup call for all of us.
Rome’s decline, many scholars agree, began when the decentralized regions of the empire lost their local control to an all powerful government. Augustus Caesar declared himself to be god on earth, and every decision then flowed down from Rome from an oppressive government bureaucracy. In the empire, crushing taxes on the middle and upper classes drove them out of business and out of Rome. The empire was bankrupt.
Fr. Andrew was invited to lead the opening prayer at the 2012 Colorado Republican State Assembly and Convention in the Magness Arena at the University of Denver. The moral challenges facing our country are not caused by political affiliation, but rather by attacks on religious freedom. He invites all people of conscience to uphold religious freedom.

Who could possibly object to a government program that feeds the hungry?
After reading the report below, please tell us what you think. Do you see anything wrong with government taking your money by force (taxes) and spending it to feed a stranger or to pay for his health care?
From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs! Sounds reasonable does it not?
Tell us how much communism you are willing to tolerate?
The late Andrew Breitbart saw in Ted Cruz the future of the conservative movement.
On paper, Cruz seems like someone out of central casting, perfectly put together to represent conservatism’s future. His father fled oppression in Cuba for freedom in America. He grew up immersing himself in the works of Frederick Bastiat, F.A. Hayek, Ludwig von Mises, and Milton Friedman, earning scholarships by giving speeches about their ideas. He went to Princeton and Harvard law without losing the common touch. He racked up legal victories that helped defend the Second Amendment and America’s sovereignty against the World Court.
From The DailyCaller.com, By Jamie Weinstein, 05/22/2012 - Formerly a left-wing activist who moved in the same circles as Tom Hayden and Jane Fonda, Father Robert Sirico shifted rightward on economic policy decades ago after debating a friend who believed in free markets.
“Throughout my life, even when I have been terribly mistaken in my ideas, I have always been open-minded and honest in looking at opposing viewpoints,” Sirico said, recalling his ideological transformation.
