Understanding Our National Debt

Debt gains control exponentially by consuming future earnings. A future denied discretionary cash after expenses is devoid of savings or  investments.

Texas Conservative Coalition – Their Pledge Needs Our Support

The values of conservatism are easy to list:      Limited Government Individual Liberty Free Enterprise Traditional Family Values However, when it comes to an elected legislature actually working on solving problems confronting a city, state, or nation, we must add the problems of personalities, communication, unintended consequences, and the un-nice world of determining payment method.

Endgame – A Look At the National Debt

It is estimated that the National Debt under the 111th Congress and President Obama in 10 years will be 90% of our economy.

Pay-As-You-Go really means Pay-As-I-Say!

This article by Senator Mike Enzi (R-WYO) takes to task Chet Edwards’ constant drip, drip promise about the merits of Pay-As-You-Go.

American Thinker: Aristotle's Warning

American Thinker: Aristotle’s Warning. This article lays out the warning for the trend of a constitution to be changed from one of liberty to one of equality.
