Big Brother Is Watching Over You

Education’s inculcation of liberal-progressivism has become the vanguard of socialism’s assault on the Constitution.  In addition to that, some public schools are subjecting students and parents to police-state terror.

Must Be The Tea Party

Obama supporters threaten to assassinate Mitt Romney if he wins the election.

Romney tried his darnedest to bring everything back to the economy and Obama seemed to say in every answer, “So what we need to do in the Middle East is talk more about how rubbish my opponent is.” It’s almost lucky that Obama isn’t running unopposed in this election because then he’d have nothing to run on at all.
