The poison spread by the progressive movement is the antidote to personal freedom and individual liberty.


So if a pregnant woman gets killed, the murderer is charged with killing two people. Yet abortion says the baby is not a person. Tell me how that makes sense.


Public education does not exist for the benefit of students or their parents. It exists for the benefit of society as a whole. The children of today will be caring for us tomorrow.

Someone will have explain to me how eliminating Saturday mail service while continuing Saturday package service saves money. The employees still report to work. The vehicles still run. The only difference is that the mail stacks up.
