From RedState, by Erick Erickson, 02/02/15 –
Humanity is tormented once again by an age-old issue—is man to live in dignity and freedom under God or be enslaved—are men in government to serve, or are they to master, their fellow men?
It befalls us now to resolve this issue anew—perhaps this time for centuries to come. Nor can we evade the issue here at home. Even in this Constitutional Republic, for two centuries the beacon of liberty the world over, individual freedom retreats under the mounting assault of expanding centralized power. Fiscal and economic excesses, too long indulged, already have eroded and threatened the greatest experiment in self-government mankind has known.
In 1863 a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States.
In 1881 a left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, President of the United States who later died from the wound.
In 1963 a radical left wing socialist shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President of the United States.
In 1975 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the United States.
In 1983 a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan.
From RedState.com By: Daniel Horowitz, May 22nd, 2013 – If I were granted one wish about the state of today’s politics it would be for the Democrats to be saddled with their own version of John McCain. Once again, McCain is working to score points for Democrats and undermine Cruz/Paul and Lee – the “Wacko Birds” – in their attempt to prevent a free debt ceiling increase.
But the biggest news might be that although teachers unions have typically been critical supporters of the Democratic Party, a growing number of Democrats are willing to back conservative education reforms. Continue reading →

From TheHill.com, By Mike Lillis – 09/02/12 – The Democrats’ approach to gun reform is far too timid and needs a boost of courage to be effective, some leading gun-reformers are charging.
The draft language of the Democrats’ 2012 platform – set for a final vote this week in Charlotte – argues that current safeguards protecting the public against gun violence are insufficient and urges “an honest and open conversation about firearms.”
From The American Thinker, By Bruce Walker, March 17, 2008 – The Democratic Party has become the Lawyers’ Party. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are lawyers. Bill Clinton and Michelle Obama are lawyers. John Edwards, the other former Democrat candidate for president, is a lawyer and so is his wife Elizabeth. Every Democrat nominee since 1984 went to law school (although Gore did not graduate.) Every Democrat vice presidential nominee since 1976, except for Lloyd Bentsen, went to law school. Look at the Democrat Party in Congress: the Majority Leader in each house is a lawyer.
Exclusive: Ben Kinchlow reveals why African-Americans vote for Democratic Party
by Ben Kinchlow, WND.com, June 10, 2012 – President Barack Hussein Obama’s assertions that 1) “We are no longer just a Christian nation” and 2) “[W]e’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world” do not hold true for black America.
In a 2007 survey, 87 percent of African-Americans described themselves as belonging to a religious group (overwhelmingly Christian). Eighty-four percent of African-American women say religion is very important to them. Nearly 80 percent of all African-Americans say religion is very important in their lives. About one percent are Muslim, fewer than one-half percent are Jewish, and about the same for Buddhist, Hindu and other world religions. Of those African-Americans who are unaffiliated with any particular faith, 45 percent still say religion is very important in their lives. While roughly 39 percent of all Americans attend religious services at least once a week and 58 percent pray daily, 53 percent of African-Americans go to church once a week, and 76 percent say they pray every day (U.S. Religious Landscape Survey, Pew Research Center, Forum on Religion & Public Life).
From GOPUSA.com, By Henry Lamb, October 17, 2011 – America took a sharp left turn in 1912, when it elected a globalist with a strong Marxist philosophy. Woodrow Wilson, and his alter-ego, Colonel Edward Mandell House, created the League of Nations, created the Federal Reserve, created the income tax, and kicked the states out of the federal government by enacting the 17th Amendment.

Lost in all the debt ceiling hubbub are a few stories which, at first glance seem odd but on further reflection are downright bizarre. One such of these was a report by researchers at Cornell University that purports to show that exposure to the American flag causes “voters of all political persuasions [to] shift toward conservative Republican attitudes and voting behavior…even for Democrats, being exposed to the flag a single time pushes them toward the opposite end of the ideology scale.
