Who should we vote for in primaries?
The GOP Primary field is now half the size it was when we the people decided nobody was worth supporting and made the mind changing decision to support Obama.
Although we the people have made the decision to support our President despite some disagreements, many of us are still Republicans and still have a vote. So the choice is, do we vote for the candidate who will certainly lose to Obama? Or do we vote for the candidate we think will be ‘the best of the worst’ should something bad happen. (A highly unlikely Obama loss.)
Government Actually Shrinking
We wouldn’t believe it if it were not true. It looks like there is now a graph circulating that indicates Government is actually shrinking!
We all know for a fact that State and Local Governments have been reducing for the past couple of years but now there seems to be some indication that the Federal Government is reducing at a nominal clip. Our friends at the conservative institute known as the Conservative Militia has come out with a shocking graph that may indicate a profound shift in how our country does business.
Knowing that more government is not the answer, it seems like the Obama administration is taking their promise to reduce the size of government seriously. Which begs the question, why are we spending so much hot air on RINOs and some of these go-along to get-along “conservatives” when our moderate leaders are quietly accomplishing our country’s goals?
Our 4 points of calling
Reduce the size and intrusiveness of government
Did you notice Obama just set forth a plan to reduce a number of superfluous agencies into one streamlined unit to make doing business easier?

Cease out-of-control spending
Last time we checked, Congress is in charge of spending. The President can submit proposals and such, but it is Congress by virtue of the United States Constitution that sets the spending AND increases the debt ceiling.
Bring back American prosperity
It may be slow, but we are pulling out of the recession that we all helped create.
Stop raising our taxes
Last time we checked, Obama forced GOP in Congress to approve tax cuts for payroll.
As much as the mainstream media would like you to believe, the Tea Party is not all a bunch of morons.
