Constitutional Convention

May 25, 1787 May 25 was a key day in the history of our constitutional republic. When the War for Independence ended in 1783, America was operating its national government under the Articles of Confederation. But that government had many flaws that needed to be corrected, so efforts were begun to address these issues. In March 1785, the Mount Vernon Conference, with delegates from Virginia and Maryland, met at George Washington’s home to address tense issues that existed between the two states. The positive outcome suggested that perhaps a meeting with additional states could be successful in addressing other issues. […]

Bronze For Brent Thompson: Statue in the Works for Slain DART Officer

By Deanna Kirk – Corsicana Daily Sun Heroes have been memorialized and immortalized in bronze for generations, dating back to wars early in our nation’s history. So it is only fitting that a bronze is being sculpted in memory of DART Officer Brent Thompson, who was killed in the line of duty in Dallas the night of July 7, 2016. Thompson saved the lives of fellow officers and peaceful protesters that night from a crazed gunman, but gave his own life in the process.

A Better Way — U.S. House Republican Vision For A Confident America

A Better Way To Fix Health Care In a Confident America, everyone has access to quality, affordable health care. Obamacare is making health care worse by the day. It drives up premiums and deductible costs for individuals, families, and businesses. It forces people off the plans they like. It fuels waste, fraud, and abuse. And it cannot be fixed.

Our enemies no longer fear us and […]
