The Constitution starts off with "We the people of the United States" it doesn't say Afghanistan or Iraq. Those countries are not us. They have a different way of doing things and to extend them rights granted to US citizens is an abuse of power. Obama should understand that we grant the government powers by our consent. We did not elect him king. He can not dictate that we give those rights to foreigners because our soldiers are not policemen and they should not be asked to act that way. To… Continue

Indiana state employee union and other pension funds have sued to stop the Chrysler bankruptcy. As you may recall, the white house threatened those bond holders that had senior rights to assets to accept less than unsecured creditors. The actual owners of that debt (pension funds) have now stood up and challenged this tyrannical seizing of assets by the federal government. "Back home again in Indiana"..... So proud of our neighbors to the south!
At the Memorial Day Parade in Walled Lake, MI., I held up a sign that read:
"Remember they died for your personal liberty, not a big central federal government."
As everyone marched by I could see the heads turn as the read the sign, the only one in the crowd. If I made one convert to the idea of limited government, then my sore shoulders the next day were a small price to bear.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." ~ Ronald Reagan

It is time, and long overdue that the American People take back this country from the strong arm of excessively large government. The spending that has been going on in past years is far out of the norm, constitutional rights of the people in America are being trampled and changed and or dramitically reduced. Elected officials no longer represent the people they are supposed to serve. Politicians seem to have developed into a complete and utter monster all their own with extremely independent… Continue
We, the people of Michigan, are alarmed, and we have taken to the streets because of what we sense is the loss of proper respect and service by those we’ve sent to Lansing (and Washington) to represent US! However, unless our Michigan Tea Parties can channel energy into a vehicle of concrete action, the past century has shown us that we’re likely to continue to proceed down the path to less freedom, fewer liberties, less economic opportunity, more taxes, and larger… Continue
