The Night Before Barackmas

The Night Before Barackmas
'Twas the night before Barackmas, when all thro' the house
Every patriot was stirring, while the average voter satquieter than a mouse.
The promises were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that candidate Obama soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of piling debt danc'd in their heads,
And Mama in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a four years term nap —
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I grabbed my shotgun to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters, and threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow,
Gave the luster of mid-day to the manager scene below;
When, what to my terrified eyes should appear,
But an empty chair, and a nation in fear,
With a little middle age driver, so obedient and nice,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Rice.
More rapid than donkeys her coursers they came,
And she whistled, and shouted, and call'd them by name:
"Now! Clinton, now! Sebelius, now! Pelosi and Fluke,
"On! Kagan, on! Biden, on! Holder and finally Americamight have been duped!;
"To the top of the porch! To the top of the embassywall!
"Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!"
As dry leaves before the fiscal cliff fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky;
So down to the heartland the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of joblessness — and St. Rice too:
And then in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The clenching and gnawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my gun, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St. Rice came with a bound:
She was dress'd all in secrets, from her head to her foot,
And her clothes were all tarnish'd with ashes and soot;
A bundle of excuses was flung on her back,
And she looked like a puppet just opening her pack:
Her eyes — how they twinkled! Her dimples: how scary,
Her cheeks were like roses, her nose like a cherry;
Her droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
She was nervous and scared, a right depressing old elf,
And she screamed when she heard it in spite of herself;
She spoke not a word, but continued with her work,
And stole all the stockings; then quickly turned with ajerk,
And laying her finger aside of her nose
And giving a nod, up the chimney she rose.
She sprung to her sleigh, to leave in a flash
And away they all flew, leaving quite a large splash,
But I gave an exclaim, ere he drove out of sight —
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

Dear Republicans

Dear Republicans,

With the 2012 election behind us, we look to 2014 to turn things around. The blaming and pointing of fingers began even before polls closed on election night. Many in the party suggest a move toward the center is the only way to draw in young people. That in my opinion, is the worst decision the GOP could make.

As an 18 year old conservative Republican a move toward the center would be the final nail in the coffin for the Republican Party. Young people are finally waking up to the fact that our nation is in trouble and many of our freedoms our quickly eroding before our eyes.

It’s not the policies that we stand for that turn the young people away but instead the attempts of pandering is why many look to the left. 

If Republicans turn away from our stances on traditional marriage, our promises NOT to raise taxes, and even the sanctity of life  what is the difference between us and the left? Nothing, beside the left also promising “free” stuff.

We must not abandon the values this nation was founded upon and the principles that led us through our darkest times. We need a restoration in this nation and party; not a moderation.

I urge you, Republicans, as a concerned young American, to stay true to your beliefs, to always fight for life, marriage, fiscal responsibly and most importantly our Constitution, And always remember why you serve…

As Henry Clay once said, “The Constitution of the United States was made not merely for the generation that then existed, but for posterity—unlimited, undefined, endless, perpetual posterity.” 

A concerned American,

RIP Twinkies

Today is indeed a sad day in America.

The unions have struck the final blow to free markets. Hostess Brands cites an inability to produce its product due to the striking union workers.

This decision by Hostess shouldn't come as a surprise to 19,000 workers as they were warned if the strike didn't cease by Thursday they would shut down all operations.

A company founded in 1930 which was able to survive many economic hardships was not able to survive the union/big government climate of 2012.

The over 19,000 workers formerly employed by Hostess will now have to find jobs in this harsh business climate.

As of this morning Hostess Brands website could no longer be found.

Hopefully Michele Obama doesn't croak tonight when I chow down on Papa John’s Pizza and enjoy some Twinkies; while I still can, for dessert.

Only in America

Driving down the dust filled country roads of Kansas, I watched as the wheat moved with the evening breeze. I couldn’t help but listen to some good old country music. As I continued down the road, the DJ came on and announced the next song, “Only in America” by Brooks and Dunn. I clenched the wheel of the truck harder and began to get chills while thinking of the not so distant past.

While our nation was conceived hundreds of miles from the prairies of Kansas, I can’t help but see the spirit of our founders alive and well every day. I see it in the Vietnam Veteran who was willing to sacrifice his life in the defense of freedom, to the history teacher whose job is to educate us about these sacrifices. Just think how lucky we are to live in a nation blessed by God.

“Only in America, where we dream as big as we want to.” The words of that song would not be possible if it were not for the men sent to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787.

As I continued driving, I saw signs of our Constitution alive and well.  I witnessed Tea Parties and freedom loving patriots petitioning their government, and as I drove further down the road I saw a church, a synagogue, and a mosque standing proudly in their community, worshiping freely in peace. Pulling over in a little town to grab a bite to eat, I visited a mom-and-pop restaurant trying to achieve the American Dream. As I left from the home cooked, finger-licking, good restaurant, I looked across the street and saw a father and son walking home from shooting clay pigeons in the country, exercising their 2nd Amendment rights.

After a day of driving through our great state, I got home, flipped on the TV, turned on the news and witnessed the media divulging the daily happenings from the president to your local county commissioner. As the commercials roll, political ad after ad scrolls, I see the diversity and chance to succeed from all candidates. There is a young woman who owns a small business down the road from you, a Hispanic man who is CEO of your local energy company, and a little old lady just wanting to make a change for the next generation; all of these men and women are willing to risk their livelihood just to allow the next generation the same chance they once had.

What sets America apart from any nation in the history of mankind?  It is the ability to pass onto the next generation a better life then you were able to experience. No matter what road or story we have to tell of our life experiences at the end of the day we can call ourselves an American. This spirit of altruism is rooted deep in our nation’s history and began long before we were the United States. Our Founding Fathers were shaped by the thought of self-sacrifice and exceptionalism. 

Drafted in our Constitution are the words that laid the foundation of this American Dream. “…and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Only in America is right. Only in America can a farm boy from Kansan grow up to be the 34th President of the United States. Only in America can a college dropout be one of the wealthiest men in the nation. Only in America can we spend our sunset years telling our grandchildren of the sacrifices and forefathers that created such a great nation.

As a young American I see now more than ever that our nation needs a steady rock and something to help us weather the storm. The Constitution is the rock that allows America to still be that “shining city on a hill.” Henry Clay eloquently stated in 1787, “The Constitution of the United States was made not merely for the generation that then existed, but for the posterity – unlimited, undefined, endless, perpetual posterity.”

After the sun sets, the demonstrators head home, and my TV goes black for the night, I kneel before my bed and thank God for the blessings He  has poured upon our nation. I pray that my generation can be strong and take the mantle of freedom and sacrifice left by those before. The work of freedom is never done. Long after I’m gone my children and my children’s children will take up freedom’s mantle. Thankfully, I know that they have everything they need in our founding documents to keep freedom alive.

Only in America is that possible.

Fluke, Fornicators and Fabricators

“We are here to nominate a president and I’ve got one in mind, former President Bill Clinton told delegates at the Democrat National Convention last night.
I bet he does have one in mind — his wife.
Clinton’s speech at the DNC had to be one of the toughest jobs — renominating President Obama to a second term.
Only four years ago Clinton hated no one more than Barack. This “fairy tale” campaign Clinton had spoken of is now asking for a second term.
The relationship was beyond frosty in 2008. Remember what happened in South Carolina?
“I think that they played the race card on me,” Clinton said of the Obama campaign. “We now know, from memos from the campaign that they planned to do it all along.”
I personally would love to be in that ballot box when Clinton pulls the lever for Gov. Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan come Nov. 6th.
Clinton was the first Democrat in this week’s convention to have the audacity to say “We are better off than we were four years ago.”
Are we?
Debt skyrocketing, unemployment up, gas up, and college tuition up. And we are better off?
Yesterday, I wondered if liberals are delusional — but I think the real question is are liberals just liars?
Day Two at the DNC appears more like Sin City.
Let’s start with Clinton — who cheated on his wife, desecrated the Oval Office and was impeached.
He is the poster child for everything that is right with the Democrats.
Then you have Elizabeth Warren who rigged the system by declaring she was Cherokee Indian. By Warren’s standards I am an Indian as well; 1/32 that is.
And don’t even get me started about Saundra Fluke.
The Queen of Contraception was given speaking time at the Democratic National Convention.
You can’t make this stuff up.
A woman that believes the taxpayers should pay for contraception and abortion.
If these three people are some of the “best” of the Democratic Party than God help us all.
What fundamental transformation occurred in the Democratic Party that when the words “God and Jerusalem” were added back to the platform boos and jeers could be heard throughout the stadium.
Here’s some advice for the Democrats — watch out for cloud to ground lightning.

Are Liberals Delusional?

I turned on my television last night to watch the Democratic National Convention — and for some reason it felt like I was transported to another dimension — especially compared to last week’s Republican gathering
in Tampa.

So here’s my question for the Left — are you delusional?

Democrats speak of lowering the debt –but the moment they hit the gavel to begin their convention the debt had officially hit the “Not So Sweet 16.” $16 trillion.

Democrats speak of fair pay between men and women yet…in the Obama White House women earn 18 percent less than men in the same positions.

Democrats speak that they are for the people… yet support the killing of millions of unborn Americans — in what is supposed to be the safest place; the womb.

The Democrats still use the slogan “Change.” Really? It’s been four years since your “fundamental transformation of America.” How much longer do you need?

The Obama Administration has “changed” a few things. Unemployment on Obama’s first day was 7.8% now America’s unemployment rate is 8.3%. That’s not the kind of change I want.

On the president’s first day on the job America’s debt was an outstanding $10.626 trillion.

Want to take a guess at what it is now?

It’s a $16 trillion. $16 trillion that my generation and my children’s children will have to pay.

Even Gov. Martin O’Malley, who is considered a possible Democratic contender in 2016, knows the economy is in the toilet.

“Can you honestly say that people are better off today than they were four years ago,” he was asked last week.

“No,” he replied. “But that’s not the question of this election.”

Excuse me, governor — but THAT IS THE QUESTION OF THIS ELECTION.

Why choose four more years when the past four years have failed?

What kind of arrogance must you have to believe you deserve four more years.

If you are willing, follow my blog this week. But be warned – I am fired up.

In President Obama’s words I am a gun-toting, Bible-clinging American.

I'm with Mitt

“Thank you, Mr. Chairman and delegates. I accept your nomination for President of the United States.”
And with that Mitt Romney became the presidential nominee of the Republican Party.
Walking onto to the floor of the Republican National Convention I could feel the electricity.
This once and a lifetime opportunity culminated with the biggest speech of Mitt Romney’s life and of course the famous balloon drop.
The final night of the convention focused on Mitt Romney as a businessman and savior of business. Because… HE DID BUILD THAT!
Dalton with Fox News Channel’s Martha McCallum.
Romney’s history at Bain Capital was shown in a new light. Staples, Sports Authority, and Bright Horizons would not have been with out Mitt Romney and Bain Capital.
One of the surprise moments of the night for me happened when over 10 Olympians joined on stage to speak about the Mitt Romney they knew… a rescuer.
Romney asked the nation a historic question.
“If you felt that excitement when you voted for Barack Obama, shouldn’t you feel that way now, that he is President Obama,” he said. “You know there is something wrong with the kind of job he has done as president when the best feeling you had was the day you voted for him.”
Romney proposed a new plan for American Exceptionalism, a path to prosperity, freedom, and peace.
It is a new path, a new destiny for America, and a restored vision of our founding fathers.
Common-sense conservatism works and that is why Governor Romney must be elected President.
“President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the ocean – and to heal the planet,” he said. “My promise is to help you and your family.”
I ask you to join me in supporting the next President of the United States Governor Mitt Romney.

Day 3: "The Next Vice President of the United States"

Like I predicted in my last blog post — Day Three was even better.
From the start to the end, the day was filled with twists and turns and much excitement.
Exhausted from yesterday’s convention work, I set my alarm for noon convinced I would wake up before noon… I didn’t. Upon waking up I followed my normal routine which obviously includes checking my email inbox.
The first email I noticed was from Fox News and Commentary Host Todd Starnes. It was titled
“Sarah Palin.” I freaked out.
I opened the email and listened to a personal message from the one and only Gov. Sarah Palin of the Great State of Alaska. For anyone that knows me, I could promise you they all wanted to see my face.
I thank Gov. Palin for taking time out of her day to encourage me to keep up the fight to restore America come this November.
The Page Program then drove us to the convention center to perform our duties of placing literature on each delegate and alternate seat.
During our breaks today I was able to meet some high profile guests including Fox News Channel’s Greta Van Sustren, former Senator Rick Santorum, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Gov. Rick Perry, and Mrs. Janine Turner of Constituting America.
The program was filled with great speakers who lit up the room. It seemed like it was VP Short list night and then finally concluded with the one on the shortest list — the next Vice President of the United States Paul Ryan.
My 2008 presidential favorite former Gov. Mike Huckabee started the prime time speakers for the night.
We then moved on to Gov. Susan Martinez who is the first Hispanic female Governor in US history and a rising star in the GOP.
And then the two most anticipated speeches of the night, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Future Vice President of the United States Paul Ryan.
Rice was a great communicator. An outstanding woman with an outstanding past. She electrifying the crowd and was a perfect opener for Representative Ryan.
“I accept your nomination as Vice President of the United States” and the crowd goes wild. Ryan’s speech was the most exhilarating thus far in the convention only to be overshadowed by the candidate himself tomorrow evening.
America can do better and we WILL do better beginning this November with the Comeback Team.
As I wrote this blog late Wednesday night the stage was being transformed for Gov. Romney’s speech later tonight.
Lucky for Republicans — we don’t have to worry about hauling those Styrofoam Greek columns from a studio lot.

Day 3: Rocking out as an RNC Page

That is the only word to describe Day Two of convention work for the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa.
My day started at 5:00 a.m. with an early wakeup call — and it ended shortly after 2:00 a.m. on Wednesday.
But the experience I had yesterday was well worth the pain I will suffer today.
I had the privilege of being interviewed by Fox News Channel’s one and only Todd Starnes. The segment covered the “Day in the Life of a Republican Page.” I was the page!

Be sure to watch Fox & Friends to watch a rocking-out, freedom-loving, and hardworking page. (That would be me!)
Following the interview with Fox News, I returned back to my duties as a page, including passing out literature, directing traffic, and most importantly being the cheerleader for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan!
These two outstanding men will lead our nation in fiscal responsibility, family values, and the restoration of the American Dream.
I had the honor of meeting so many VIPS — from members of the media to high-profile Republicans.
Yesterday’s prominent speakers included, Wis. Gov. Scott Walker, former Penn. Senator Rick Santorum, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and the next First Lady of the United States, Ann Romney.
Like I tweeted following Mrs. Romney’s speech “She just won him an election!”
Mrs. Romney showed us Mitt as a dad, husband and grandfather; contrary to Obama’s belief that he kills woman.
The future First Lady electrified the crowd and brought some to tears. Signs shot up across the room with the words “We Love Ann” and chants of “Yes We Ann! Yes We Ann!”
Two speakers, I previously knew little about, had me on my feet enthused about the November election and the endless possibilities in America.
Former Congressman Artur Davis, the gentleman –who originally seconded the motion that made Barack Obama the Democratic nominee four years ago — has officially endorsed Mitt Romney for president.
Mr. Davis, now a Republican, spoke to those who may feel the same he does, those who realize the false hope and want real change in the Oval Office.
The second speaker, I will predict right now, will be a future occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. — Mia Love, the congressional candidate from Utah’s 4th Congressional District.
Mrs. Love’s speech was by far the most inspiring speech I heard all night. She is the conservative Mayor of Saratoga Springs — known for cutting expenses and getting a AA+ bond rating.
I don’t know what experiences can top yesterday but I have a feeling each day will get even more exciting.
I need a nap

Day 2: Birdies for the Brave

Today I had the privilege of volunteering on the golf course for “Birdies for the Brave.”
This great organization helps provide assistance to our nation’s Wounded Warriors.
Today’s golf event at the TPC Golf Course raised $1.6 million — and at least two service members will receive new homes.
The 2012 Republican National Convention Page Program helped out at the event – we collected golf balls.
The event was chaired by House Speaker John Boehner and Bob McDonnell, the governor of Virginia.
Our time on the course was cut short by bad weather associated with Isaac. But in spite of the weather conditions, many lawmakers, donors, and VIPS chose to tough it out and take a swing — and at the same time – help members of our military who sacrificed so much for our freedom.
If you haven’t heard of the organization “Birdies for the Brave” you have to check out them out and get involved now at
Following the return from the golf course we had the opportunity to watch Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary “Obama’s America: 2016.”

This eye opening documentary showed me even more reasons why Mitt Romney must win in November.
Like the documentary says “Love him or hate him, you don’t know him.”
“2016” is now the tenth Box Office Hit with more theaters opening across the nation every day. Republicans, democrats, and independents just want to know the man seeking a second term.
Tomorrow is when the real party begins!

Tampa: Day 1

My name is Dalton Glasscock. I am 18 years old, I am a registered Republican and I am excited to cast my first vote for Gov. Mitt Romney.
I am proud to be a Republican. I have the honor of representing the great state of Kansas as their Republican Page alongside Alexandra Coyler.
At 3:30 a.m. Saturday morning, I woke to begin a journey to officially begin the 2012 election.
Arriving in Tampa Bay Florida at 11:47am I knew I would fit right in.
The first thing I saw upon de-boarding the plane was a “Welcome Republicans” sign with dozens of friendly faces nearby, a barber shop quartet singing “God Bless the USA” and hundreds of freedom loving, and fired up Republicans ready to take back our country!
The staff and volunteers from not only the Committee on Arrangements, but the city of Tampa, and the airport went out of their way to accommodate GOP’ers from across the nation.
Billboard after billboard drenched the Tampa highway from “Don’t Trust the Liberal Media”, to dozens of “Welcome to Tampa Bay” and my personal favorite, “Welcome to Tampa Bay where our Mayor and every Council Member is a Democrat.”
The experience I am about to have will be a life changing, eye opening, and exhilarating one to say the least.
It is great to see 100 fired-up teenagers here to support the Romney-Ryan Ticket! The youth of America are waking up to the fact that our nation is under attack.

We see the economy affecting our family pocketbooks, our faith continually being attacked, and we are tired of sitting on the sidelines!
As the storm is brewing in the Gulf of Mexico, the spirit of the Republican Party is coming alive!
Beware liberals. We are preparing for November!

50 Years After They Banned Prayer -- Are We Better Off?

It was fifty years ago today that the Supreme Court of the United States issued one of the most controversial decisions in the nation’s history -- the day they removed prayer from public schools.

In 1683 our forefathers explicitly mentioned the power of Jesus Christ in our founding. The Rhode Island Charter of 1683 states “We submit our person, lives, and estates unto our Lord Jesus Christ, the King of kings, and Lord of lords, and to all those perfect and most absolute laws of His given us in His Holy World.”

Just ask yourself are we better off morally then we were just 50 years ago?

Just 50 years ago, kids could stay out past dark and their parents did not have to worry about pedophiles preying on their children.

Just 50 years ago, you actually knew your neighbor’s names.

Just 50 years ago, you didn’t have children ridiculing, and taunting an elderly bus monitor to tears, just for the fun of it.

I believe there is a correlation to the spike in crime, and the lack of religion our children our learning from a young age.

In 1947, in the landmark case Everson V. Board of Education, Thomas Jefferson’s “Wall of Church and State” was put on the stand. Since this decision relied on a statement, not made in our founding but instead 13 years after the Constitution was approved, our nation’s faith and core conviction have been on constant attack.

Somehow in the minds of the elitists Justices one statement after our founding dictates what our founders intended, not the thousands of calls for prayer and religion in the midst of our creation.

We forget the words of George Washington, “No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand which conducts the affairs of men more than those of the United States.” And we ignore the inscription on his monument, “Laus Deo” which means “Praise be to God.”

We overlook the inscription “In God We Trust” found in our nation’s capital and the words “Preserve me, God, for in Thee do I put my trust.”

But perhaps saddest of all; we forget the blessings our God has poured on our nation.

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Our land truly does need healing -- and we as Christians must stand and restore this nation to its God-fearing founding.

Former President Ronald Reagan once issued a call to arms for the nation.

“If ever there was a time for you, the good people of this country, to make your voices heard, to make the mighty power of your will the decisive force in the halls of Congress, that time is now,” he declared.

That time is indeed now.

Fast and Furious: Somebody Needs to Go to Jail

Conservatives across the nation have known about the “Fast and Furious” cover-up for months now, but I suspect the average American knew very little of the Justice Dept. scandal -- until yesterday.

President Obama’s decision yesterday to invoke Executive Privilege may have given Attorney General Eric Holder political cover – but it conservative bloggers and tweeps the campaign ultimate

Obama is not the first president to exercise his right to use Executive Privilege. President Clinton used it. So did President Bush. But there is a significant difference. First – both Clinton and Bush had some sort of vested interest in invoking Executive Privilege.

To my knowledge, President Obama has no apparent connection to the “Fast and Furious” hullabaloo.

So why is he invoking Executive Privilege?

Regardless, “Fast and Furious” can no longer be swept under the rug by the liberal media elites. Once the President comments on the program from the Bully Pulpit all eyes and ears are turned toward them.

Dalton is a conservative blogger from America's heartland. Follow him on Twitter @dglasscock

Rep. Dennis Ross (R-FL) expressed outrage that many Americans share over the administration’s handling of the scandal.

“I truly apologize to the Terry family for what you've had to endure, and that we have an attorney general like this,” he said.

But Holder is downplaying the issue.

“That might make for good political theater, but it does little to uncover the truth or address the problems associated with this operation and prior ones dating back to the previous administration,” Holder said.

Not once did Holder mention Brian Terry, the Border Patrol agent who was gunned down at the hands of a “Fast and Furious” weapon. Not once did he invoke this American hero’s name. Not once did he say anything about justice for Terry’s family.

Meanwhile, Democrats are trying to place the blame on the Bush Administration – even though “Fast and Furious” had absolutely nothing to do with President Bush.

Truth always prevails, and I suspect that some very high-ranking Obama Administration officials will be watching the inauguration of Mitt Romney from a federal penitentiary. I hope.

"We Are All Cheeseheads"

The nation’s newest conservative superstar is Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

First and foremost congratulations are needed for the Governor, but most importantly the thousands of volunteers who made this win possible.

The hatred and vitriol shown by the union thugs in Wisconsin will only continue into the November election but on a much larger scale across the United States. Add Walker to the list of detested conservatives by the left, soon to join the ranks of Glenn Beck, Michele Bachmann, and Sarah Palin.

Liberal shenanigans occurred throughout the state with reporting a turnout of over 119% in Madison Wisconsin. Even with the zombie apocalypse occurring throughout the States, the dead couldn’t cast enough votes to elect Barrett Governor.

President Obama in a campaign tour near the cheese state earlier today wouldn’t even swing by and flaunt his support for Barrett. Whether this was because he knew of the impending loss, OR that he didn’t want to hamper Barrett’s chance of success even more.

This upcoming November be prepared to see ACORN and its affiliates in full force throughout the county. No wonder why the Obama administration’s Department of Justice is suing numerous states trying to enact measures to prevent voter fraud.

I would do anything to be in the same room with Ed Shultz, Rachel Maddow, and the whole MSNBC crew this evening. With plummeting ratings already they once again have nothing to hang their hat on.

All eyes were on Wisconsin this week and what this win proved more than anything is that boots on the ground and the drive to make change will always succeed. American’s for Prosperity was crucial in this win and through them I was given the chance to spread my resources toward Wisconsin. My “I Stand with Walker” rally sign will proudly remain on my wall till our nation is restored as a constant reminder of the needed rally cry.

What thrills me most about this win is that in special election after special election the liberal candidate continues to loose. Free markets and conservatism time and time again prevail. With God’s grace I pray that this recall election win carries over to November.

"To the Stars through Difficulties"

“Can’t we all just get along?” is what every Kansan is feeling this week, as news that the once a decade legislative restricting debacle will be settled in court, instead of the legislature, reached kitchen tables across the Sunflower State.

This is childhood backyard bickering at its best, only to be settled by the parent, or in this case the courts. Kansas is officially the last state in the union to compose a redistricting map and the process is not yet complete. Three federal judges will now decide the fate of two million Kansans instead of their duly elected officials.
Gerrymandering at its best; almost worse than Illinois District 4. One Senate Map placed 2 Senators and a declared candidate in the same district; a district gerrymandered to be 15 miles wide and 75 across.
Many state legislatures are putting their political future above what is best for Kansas citizens by drawing out potential political rivals. Kansas has become the laughing stock of the nation.
People don’t get involved in politics because of this political side. There are many qualified every-day Kansans that should and would run for office if it weren’t for the smoke filled back room deals.

Kansas is sure living up to part of its motto of “Ad Astra per Aspera” (To the Stars through Difficulties). Just hopefully we don’t have the same difficulties in ten years.

"It's the Soldier"

Many consider the start of their summer to be Memorial Weekend, yet they completely skip the true meaning of Memorial Day itself.
We have seen the continuous commercialization of every American holiday. Halloween Décor shooting up on stock room shelves as early as August. The eve of Halloween each and every store is transformed into a winter wonderland. And as soon as we celebrate Easter, people are already pitching “Memorial Day Sales."

But when the last Monday of May rolls around few stop and celebrate the day to honor those who died in the line of battle.


Americans are fortunate enough to express our freedoms everyday, yet rarely take time to think of how they received those freedoms.
One quote by Father Dennis Edward O’Brien expresses this clearly.

It's the soldier, not the reporter who has given us
Freedom of the Press.
It's the soldier, not the poet, who has given us
Freedom of Speech.
It's the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the
Freedom to Demonstrate.
It's the soldier, not the lawyer, who has given us the
Right to a Fair Trial.
It's the soldier who salutes the flag, serves under the flag and
whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who gives the protestor the right to burn the flag.
This Memorial Day, I urge you to take a moment and think about those who have given their lives so you can live in the greatest nation that has ever been.  I wish you and yours a blessed Memorial Day.

Liberal Media goes Michael Vick on Conservative Women

It has been said that being a conservative is the hardest job anyone can have, but it would be more accurate to say the toughest job in the world is to be a conservative woman. They have been introduced on nightly television with negative songs and epithets such as Congresswoman, and former Presidential Candidate, Michele Bachmann was in late November 2011, with the song “Lyin A*s B*tch” by Fishbone. Or being slammed by John Stewart, as Sarah Palin was on national TV. Stewart attacked her by saying "she said that small towns, that's the part of the country she really likes going to because that's the pro-America part of the country. You know, I just want to say to her, just very quickly: F*ck you." Critics often show double standards and use sexist jokes in an effort to degrade conservative woman. This can be seen even as recent as yesterday with Hustler posting an fake explicit image of GBTV host, S.E Cupp  in their magazine; now ask yourself what would happen if Cupp was a liberal radio host?

Society’s treatment of conservative woman is reprehensible. Fear and defamations have obscured the positive qualities of many groups. The media, politicians, and elitists of any era have used three tactics to keep down rising forces; continuation of the status quo, religious fallacies, and propaganda. It is our right to stand up for the truth and stand up for the underdog, especially when it is a simple attack on their beliefs. 

Women have come a long way since the ratification of the 19th Amendment in the United States Constitution. Females continually are taking celebrated steps toward acquiring power as they become City Leaders, Representatives, Governors, Senators and even Presidential Candidates. Take the women who chooses life above killing her unborn child, and day after day raising her children to become honest, pure, and faithful young men and women.

One word can change the way opinions are formed in a split second…Propaganda. Propaganda can be as simple as distorting someone’s words. One of the most bought uses of propaganda was Saturday Night Lives’ (SNL) Tina Fey’s dramatic spin of Sarah Palin during the 2008 Presidential Race, “I can see Russia from my house!” It’s been a proven fact that those words never actually left Palin’s mouth. This phrase, punned by Tina Fey, was in response to Sarah Palin’s CBS interview with Katie Couric where she discussed her Foreign Policy experience as Governor of Alaska. This four-part interview was originally two hours long, yet the CBS crew edited the two hour long interview down to a mere 40 minutes, making sure to edit out anything that showed the Governor as a credible candidate. These attacks would not happen if the candidate was Hilary Clinton, Geraldine Ferrero, or even Michele Obama. Propaganda against conservative woman is nothing new in the past election cycle. With the rise of new conservative women, we must not forget the liberal’s first punching bag, Lady Margaret Thatcher, “For more than a decade, Margaret Thatcher presided over vicious attacks on the working class, wrecking the lives of millions. She was resisted by mass, militant struggle by the miners and printers, and Liverpool city council, among others, before her downfall at the hands of 18 million poll tax non-payers, only for her mantle to be picked up by “New Labour” ”  (Socialism Today). Propaganda has been used as a ploy to exploit the positive contributions that certain groups can bring to discussion. When will we reach a day where when the media reports the truth with no bias, hopefully one day soon.

Today’s society should applaud the front the conservative women are backing. In “First they Came” by Martin Niemöller he describes the importance on why we need to speak for those attacked by the elite.

First they came for the communists,

and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,

and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,

and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me

and there was no one left to speak out for me.

The conservative women of today stand up for the heart of America. They challenge the status quo, fight religious fallacies, and continually bat down propaganda. Conservative women are attempting to pave a new path, free from fear, oppression, and discrimination; in the words of Sarah Palin, “Politics isn’t just a game of clashing parties and competing interests. The right reason is to challenge the status quo, to serve the common good, and to leave this nation better than we found it.”

May God bless Conservative women and may God bless the United States.

"Dispatches from Bitter America"

My friends, America is in turmoil at every turn. Millions out of work, an ever rising debt, and our Christian faith and heritage attacked on a daily basis. I do have hope, hope not in a single man who lives at1600 Pennsylvania Ave., but a hope and faith in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Todd Starnes’ "Dispatches from Bitter America" puts into perspective the world that we live in; a world where the White House Christmas tree has an ornament of Chairman Mao, to where a third grader is barred from reading his Bible.

Starnes’ book must be used as a call to action to Christians nationwide. This book combines stories about the continued attack on the heart of America to show how prevalent the problem is. One chapter which sickened me the most was where elementary school boys and girls reportedly sang "Obama Loves the Little Children" replacing Obama with Jesus. Yet at the same time school children in Philadelphia couldn’t even mouth the lyrics of "We Three Kings". The attack on our faith does not stop there as you will find in the book hundreds of examples of the double standards practiced by the left, and the average law abiding citizens who are the ones most affected.

So for all gun toting, chicken eating and bible clinging Americans, grab your arms (Disclaimer: Figuratively of course) and join the fight to take this nation back. Here in fly over country there are many of us who still believe that America is the land of opportunity and faith and the world’s inspiration in these troubling times. The nation must humble itself before the Lord and we will then be the beacon of faith that we have been destined to be.

Second Anniversary of ObamaCare

Two years ago the largest overhaul of this nation’s healthcare industry occurred. With one swipe of his pen, President Obama, signed into law a monstrosity.  What strips away our religious freedoms, our personal responsibility and rights, and tramples over the constitution time after time? ObamaCare MUST be repealed.

ObamaCare is easily the worst bureaucratic mess in our nation’s history; and the woman to lead up this fight is none other than the wicked witch of the Midwest,  Kansas’ former Governor and now Secretary of Health and Human Services, Mrs. Kathleen Sebelius.  

While most problems in DC arise with blame from both parties, ObamaCare passed without a singular Republican vote, making it solely the left’s brainchild.

The fate of our future is on the line and we must take a stand now, before it is too late. America is at a crossroads: Do we follow the left’s unconstitutional socialistic mentality or the right’s approach to free market, personal responsibility and an unending faith in our creator?

 This is our opportunity to make a change! The clock has almost struck zero and this is our last time to stand up for what we so profoundly believe in. On November 6th 2012 we must and we will give President Obama a pink slip and we WILL repeal ObamaCare once and for all!
As a young individual in this nation I am frightful, yet remaining hopeful in the course of our nation. Americans are beginning to wake up and realize what is happening to our county.  ObamaCare will be used as a figurehead and a showcase for the Republican candidate of contrast between them and the President. Americans were fooled once in 2008 and elected Obama, but will we be fooled again?  Let us hope and pray that change does come and that at this time next year we will be celebrating a land free from unconstitutional mandates, a land where prosperity does grow, and a land that is better than the previous generation.
