America needs a spiritual revival to address the problem of drugs in our homes, schools, and communities. Permissive laws that encourage the sale of destructive substances will only add to the moral crisis that is destroying us from within
This was not an authorization for military operations anywhere. This was not a resolution of approval for President Bush’s policies. This was simply a resolution honoring the victims of 9/11.
And yet, Baldwin voted AGAINST it.
The break of protocol by the Mormon Church, indicated by the scores of volunteers from BYU pouring into the battleground states of Colorado and Nevada to campaign both Saturdays and Sundays for Mitt Romney, is the exertion that is acceptable to the Lord when the essence of one’s substance and independence are at stake.
Barack Obama came into office explicitly promising deep defense cuts to his liberal supporters. And he has delivered. Now he plans to make even further defense cuts, which, even in the absence of sequestration, would include closing the Lima Tank Plant – the only facility in the entire United States today capable of producing tanks.
First of all, Federal Law is in conflict with state laws that legalize pot. Whether or not you agree with this, the biggest impact will be on the most important role of the Federal Government, and that is to protect and defend our borders and our people.

When pot practitioners flooded towns like Nederland, Telluride, Breckenridge, Steamboat Springs, et al., marijuana became commensurate with the Centennial State.

Since the inception of what would become the United States of America, the declaration, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” redefined forever the phenomenon of “government,” as well as the justification of war.
A President Romney would not appease Putinist Russia, sign unequal treaties obligating only the US to cut its nuclear deterrent, give up missile defense deployment plans for no Russian reciprocation, stand silent about Putin’s human rights violations and intimidation of Russia’s Central European neighbors like Poland, or about Russia’s repeated usage of natural gas as a weapon of intimidation.
