Happy July 4th

America’s Birthday On July 4, 1776, a group of Americans approved a document declaring the United States of America free from English rule.  This document was the Declaration of Independence, and we celebrate today this courageous action. The Declaration of Independence is the nation’s birth certificate.  Thomas Jefferson, the primary author of the Declaration, outlined its purpose: “When forced, therefore, to resort to arms for redress, an appeal to the tribunal of the world was deemed proper for our justification.  This was the object of the Declaration of Independence.  Not to find out new principles, or new arguments, never before […]

Wade, and the rights of gun owners in DC v. Heller in 2008.

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. […]

Its knot of regulations, taxes, and mandates cannot be untangled. Obamacare must be fully repealed so we can start over and take a new approach. Key Facts: 48 = The number of ideas on health care reform in the GOP plan. […]

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

A Better Way To Keep Us Safe And Free A Confident America keeps its people safe, and keeps the peace in a dangerous world. Our nation’s foreign policy is failing at nearly every turn. From refusing to enforce its red line in Syria, to legitimizing Iran’s nuclear enrichment program, to its failed reset with Russia, to cavalierly dismissing the retreat while the most dangerous terrorist organization in history emerged. the Obama administration has experimented with a new foreign policy concept — leading from behind — that can now be declared an unambiguous failure. Our enemies no longer fear us and […]

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

A Better Way To Fight Poverty If the American Dream isn’t true for everyone, it isn’t true for anyone. All of us should have the chance to make the most of our lives no matter where we start. Our country is all about striving, but too many of our people are stuck. Over the years, Washington has made many promises, created many programs, and spent many trillions to fight poverty. Yet today in America, if you are raised poor, you are just as likely to stay poor as you were 50 years ago. The key word here is “stay.” Our […]
