Food prices are up 48%. Energy’s up 23%. Wheat’s up 74%. Gas is up 68%. What’s next? Is there an end in sight?
For Social Security recipients, it may be coming very soon as conservatives in Congress demand an “adjustment” in the Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) that was meant to help them cope with inflation. For endangered Middle Class Americans it may come in 2013 as this adjustment pushes more…Continue
The 2016 Elections is off to a early start. Some people feel that the building block for the Tea Party Independent Forum within the Independent Voting Floor will separate the power of the Republican Party. I am sorry but this is not true. The Foundation of this forum is to bring in new officials as well as a Independent Tea Party Officials. As States move to file for Independence and to form their own Government, this is by all mean a mistake, The Separation of the States will break the…Continue
From the Office of Congressman Steve King
As you know from the enclosed letter, a U.S./Mexico Social Security Treaty will place a massive and unnecessary burden on our already troubled Social Security system. And you have probably read how passage of the Treaty takes place automatically UNLESS Congress acts to stop it.
There are other reasons why EVERY taxpayer, Social Security recipient and concerned…Continue

A Chinese auto company having just won the auction for bankrupt A123 Systems, one of Barack Obama’s car battery darlings that received a $249 million grant from the Obama government further illustrates why the White House playing capital investor with taxpayer funds investor is a very bad idea.
When Obama took office in January 2009, five million “green” jobs were promised, yet nowhere near that number have been created. The companies Obama invests in keep failing because Americans do…Continue

If there was no other reason to defeat President Obama in November, it would be the planned destruction of what is left of the U.S. economy by the Environmental Protection Agency.
In “A Look Ahead to EPA Regulations for 2012” the minority staff (Republican) of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works has issued a chilling review of a massive rise in the costs of living for all Americans, massive layoffs in all sectors of the economy, and the…Continue

This is from a Facebook thread by someone you may know:
Has there ever been an economic cabinet member in the White House?
This might be a great position for Ron Paul.

Prosperity, Wealth, and Redistribution
When political leaders (or candidates) talk about “prosperity,” there are at least two divergent meanings to their words. On the one hand, prosperity is described as the result of hard work and determination. On the other hand, it is the some combination of luck, greed, plus government intervention and assistance. Very few people would deny they want to prosper. It’s a good word. It means “to make happy or successful.” Most of us understand that.…

This week marks the start of the Republican National Convention in Tampa. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will be named the GOP ticket for November’s election. We already know that Barack Obama and Joe Biden will be the Democratic ticket.
So now we know who the candidates and personalities will be. …Continue

Dear Mr. Feulner:
As a former member, I was disappointed in a survey which you emailed to me. As with most of these “surveys”, the questions never seem to be the right ones concerning policy. For instance, it failed to ask:
Every state has its own. Should the US Department of Education be abolished?
Should the US Department of Energy be abolished?
Every state has its own. Should the EPA be abolished?
Do you favor…Continue
In the 6/4/12 issue of “Forbes” magazine, Steve Forbes writes “Modern socialists learned years ago that you can effectively control large swaths of the economy through overwhelming regulation rather than outright nationalization. The President has become a master at this; healthcare, banking and energy are well on their way to becoming impotent vassals of the U.S. government.” He continues to say that our telecommunications industry is another industry upon whose windpipe the…Continue
When was the last time you had your hair cut? Chances are it has been longer for you than it has for Obama. German Public Radio reported on Wednesday that the American taxpayers pay for President Obama to have his hair cut every 10 - 14 days.
The president of any country should look his or her best at all times and Obama is no exception. Obama was accustomed to having his hair cut by the same…Continue

A lifelong Republican, I’ve spoken in the past of the possibility that we may need to form a Constitutional Conservative Party. It may come down to that, because, as we can see, the Republican Party is not getting the job done. How else could we be where we find ourselves in 2012? If our Party was effective, we wouldn’t be here. They just keep doing what they want, and keep making excuses. They are neither responsive nor aggressive enough. Bear in mind, I’m talking about the…Continue

Today’s GOP seems to be fixed on a single, issue: fix the economy. That always translates into their catch-all call for “lower taxes” and when they've done something along those lines, they go into hibernation -- or worse, spend more! We’ve certainly seen a severe economic downturn across the entire spectrum of the US economy in the years following 2007, which requires no detailed description here. We all know about it. However, what’s the GOP always concerned about in any given…Continue
US have been struggling in the economic filed since the recession of 2007-2009. In the process, both the national debt and the consumer or household debt have gotten out of control. The…

In my last article I spoke of how we would have to think of politics differently if we expect to win the policies we want to see put into place. Have you been to the Republican National Committee’s website recently (GOP.com)? Did you see an itemized list of legislative goals? All I saw were broad categories and general statements relating to them… from the 2008 platform! Why don’t they know what their specific goals are? It’s axiomatic that, if you don’t know where you’re going, you’re…Continue
