Congress Can't Give Themselves Raises; Must Pay Taxes

One of the most frustrating events in government is when the legislature tells the people to be prepared to sacrifice then have that same legislature give itself a raise.

Restrict campaign contributions to eligible voters

Only allow political campaigns to accept money from individual registered voters -- not from organizations of any kind -- and only from voters who are eligible to vote on the issue being campaigned.

This would sharply limit the influence of big money interests of all kinds. They ...more »

Von Brunn is Gon Crazy!

For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; Philippians 3:20 I am choosing being a citizen of Heaven since Obama and his team is taking America straight to world citizenship, and then straight to hell.
