"In just a few short decades, the stalwart strivers for equality have turned into coddled whiners for hypersensitivity. The NAACP is a laughingstock. The group no longer represents the best interests of oppressed minorities, but the thin-skinned whims of the black elite and the ravenous appetite of the Nanny State. Establishment civil rights leaders now use their once-compelling moral authority to hector, bully and shake down corporate and political targets." --columnist Michelle Malkin
"Beware when the political class preens about protecting us from 'special interests.' The most powerful, persistent and anti-constitutional interest is the political class. Bradley Smith, former chairman of the Federal Election Commission, says that Disclose should stand for Democratic Incumbents Seeking to Contain Losses by Outlawing Speech in Elections. It is a reason for voters to multiply those losses." --columnist George Will
"The political rationale for the lawsuit the Obama administration has filed to overturn Arizona's immigration law is clear. ... [T]he lawsuit likely is an effort to boost the president's standing among Hispanics. ... Since federal appellate courts -- including the U.S. Supreme Court in a 1976 case -- have held that state laws which enforce federal statutes are not unconstitutional intrusions into federal jurisdiction, the administration is unlikely to prevail in court. But since the purpose of this lawsuit is political, that may not matter much to this scofflaw president." --columnist Jack Kelly
"Have you heard about the administration's propaganda campaign to adorn each federal 'stimulus' project with taxpayer-funded signs to remind us that these projects have been bestowed on us by the beneficence of the Obama administration? The signs read, 'Project funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.' In the first place, they're not funded by any act, but by the American taxpayer. This type of government self-promotion is eerily reminiscent of dictatorial governments in modern history that not only deprived their citizens of freedom and private property but also demanded to be glorified for the morsels they doled back out to them." --columnist David Limbaugh
"The Great Depression, like most other periods of severe unemployment, was produced by government mismanagement rather than by any inherent instability of the private economy. ... Roosevelt's policies were very destructive. Roosevelt's policies made the depression longer and worse than it otherwise would have been." --economist Milton Friedman (1912-2006)
"I don't know who started the idea that a President must be a Politician instead of a Business man. A Politician can't run any other kind of business. So there is no reason why he can run the U.S. That's the biggest single business in the World." --American humorist Will Rogers (1879-1935)

Are Democrats and Republicans the same party?If you look at the facts, you can see many similarities between Republicans and Democrats. One is they both get funding from Goldman Sachs. Why would the same people fund both parties? Both parties agree with The Federal Reserve printing money, going...

Seems to me the biggest aim of the tea party is a smaller government, right?Well now how does that work then? I have always thought that folks want the government to be hands off when it comes to them. When it comes to those that they don't approve of, well why the hell isn't the government doing...

With the way things are playing out in the U.S.'s economic state, almost every American citizen is giving up the faith in the federal government. The truth of the matter is, personally, I don't know what kind of country we are anymore. The reason for this personal belief of mine is that we have...
