Millennials comprised 17 percent of the electorate in 2008 and voted for Obama by a 2-to-1 margin.
If you have not already summed up the Democratic talking points to usher in four more years of liberal "hope and change," you soon will as the political attacks drone on. One that remains a liberal favorite is how Mitt Romney's years at Bain Capital ushered in bankruptcies, cut thousands of jobs, and contributed to the deaths of some who lost healthcare coverage in the wake of these "greedy" takeover efforts.
Don't just put your trust in President Obama or in Mitt Romney. Elect the president who will put his trust in "We the People." That's right. It's time to put your trust in yourself, your fellow countrymen, your community, and the ability of a renewed American Dream to once again transform our economy and our country.
Reviving American values won't come by criticizing the media or railing at the intrusive nature of big government. It will come when parents once again take on the critical role of raising their children to be responsible citizens. Training children is time consuming and requires creative repetition and consistency in a world deluged with competing values.
Unearthing some politically incorrect statement by President Reagan, the media would charge, "You did this didn't you?" Reagan's reply: "Damn right, and I'd do it again!" Mitt Romney could do the same--"Game On, Mr. President!"
As we take time on July 4th to celebrate the liberty we cherish as American, it's important to recognize the critical role a free press plays in surfacing the truth "we the people" need to exercise our civic duty.
American capitalism doesn’t make you selfish; socialistic entitlements foster more selfishness. Free enterprise encourages you to earn your reward by serving customers willing to pay; entitlements build the expectation that someone else ought to pay to fulfill your wants and needs.
While Romney campaigns on how poorly our economy is performing under President Obama, the President ought to thank the "red" state GOP governors who are generating both economic and job growth despite his administration's policies.
If you want to know what is wrong with the cost of education in America, look to some of the politicians you elected. We've been sold that cheap student loans are the answer to making education affordable. Nothing can be further from the truth.
Have you ever wondered how President Obama's budget can be unanimously defeated by both the House (414-0) and the Senate (97-0) and how the U.S. Senate can go three years without submitting or passing a single budget and yet government spending keeps exploding and the federal debt keeps growing?
With our Presidential candidates clear, there's no better issue to contrast our choice than energy policy. At MittRomney.com, Romney provides an energy plan for the future that balances economic growth and jobs, diversified energy development, and realistic environmental safeguards. His approach stresses a rational and streamlined approach to regulation, approval of the Keystone Pipeline, and opening America's vast energy resources for development.
Whether looking at the founding or the future of our country, faith matters.
When Paul Ryan delivered this year's proposed Republican budget, the political response was predictable and divided.
As with C.S. Lewis, I cannot disclose how this devilish, intercepted communication fell into my hands, but disclose it I must.
Mark: "My name is Mark. I'm here at Government Anonymous because I'm addicted...addicted to government aid."
"We the people," in many ways, get what we deserve from our politicians. When a leader changes her position, she's called a flip-flopper. When a misstatement is made, the snippet is played endlessly on YouTube to the raucous delight of political foes. Fearful of losing votes, the mere admission of a mistake is turned over to the spin mavens to minimize the exposure or to blame the other side.
In President Obama's State of the Union Address, the president shared a quote by Abraham Lincoln that finally got Republicans to rise and applaud a core principle that America used to stand for: "You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.”
Mitt Romney, fresh from victories in Iowa and New Hampshire, continues to attack President Obama and focus on how he has the business background to..."get America working again." But he can thank the Wall Street Journal, an angry Newt Gingrich, and opposition research for testing the mettle of the man early!
On a recent trip to the Reagan Presidential Library I was struck over and over again by the confidence President Ronald Reagan had in Americans--in American workers, leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, the young and the old.
Conservatives must be taking the wrong approach in getting the attention of American voters when comedians find that half of the people they interview on the street can't even name one Republican presidential candidate.
