This week, North Carolina voters overwhelmingly made their state the 31st to pass a state constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
One day later, Obama finished "evolving" his position on marriage and called for the legalization of gay marriage.
In every case, when the people have a choice, they vote to uphold the traditional definition of marriage - which is why the left uses activist judges or radical legislators to get their way over the will of the people.
For years, the Obama Justice Department has refused to defend the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as one man and one woman. read more »
In 2008, Mitt Romney bested John McCain in both the Minnesota and Colorado caucuses by huge margins, and was part of a three-way split in Missouri. Just a week ago he lost all three. So what’s different in 2012?
The fundamental difference between the current race for the Republican nomination and the 2008 version is that Romney is viewed as the “least conservative” of the field – vs. 2008, when McCain held (or at least shared) that title. The result? Romney has had a harder time attracting conservatives, and many of them have spent the better part of the last year trying on other candidates.
Given Santorum’s recent wins, and his new status atop some national GOP polls, it should be a validation of his strategy to stay focused on conservative issues. For Romney and Gingrich, it should remind them that they need to lay off of attacking each other and get back to the issues. Everyone knows that both of them (and a good many of their supporters) think that the other is suspect. Some think both of them are. Some even have suspicions about Santorum. But, baring divine intervention, one of them will be the Republican nominee, and as they say in NASCAR, “you’ve got to run with what you brought to the track”. read more »
Asking “Where did the Occupy movement go wrong?” is akin to musing “Where did Michael Moore’s fitness regime fall apart?” The answer: early, often, all over the place.
The propelling mindset driving the vast majority of the Occupy movement is not one of genuine civil service, dedicated to the honest betterment of America as a whole (like, say, the Tea Party), but rather one of entitled victimization from a growing number of those who think other people should be forced to share their success.
This compilation of old hippies pining for revolution amongst college kids who simply don’t want to make their own way is the unsurprising result of liberalism in America today. This is what happens when children are fed faux lessons in self esteem and tolerance from broken family systems and then taught in school that the theory of communism is noble, if only the implementation could be mastered. American students are engulfed in a sea of liberalism from kindergarten through university, often void of any opposing views and without prompting to study the historical precedent and common sense consequences of the ideology with which they’re being indoctrinated.
The protestors, in the beginning, took to the streets against “corporate corruption and greed.” A decent and reasonable cause to be sure, but one that lasted shorter than a New York minute. Unfortunately, any decent and reasonable people quite quickly picked up their corporation made signs and went home the instant they saw these protests for what they really are: A war against traditional American values, including capitalism, and a battle to get as much of somebody else’s money as possible. read more »
