  • The Fight Has Only Begun

    Constitutional conservatism is alive and well in America today.

    From conservatives in Congress working to roll back big government spending to the backlash over Obamacare’s anti-conscience mandate, it’s clear that Americans are clinging to the foundational principles of our country.

    Two years ago, the Tea Party movement launched grassroots conservative activists to the forefront of political debate, giving big-government liberals a force to be reckoned with. Reinvigorated citizens began to fight for the constitutional cornerstones of limited government, free markets, and localized empowerment.

    The fight to return to a constitutional government is still raging—and it isn’t going anywhere. As Ronald Reagan said, “It is time to check and reverse the growth of government, which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of the governed.”

    America is checking and reversing, President Reagan. The fight has only begun.

      I'm so excited! Finally……someone has watched & listening closely to the American People and taken the initiative in begging the Impeachment process against Barack Obama! God bless America, Senator Walter Jones of North Carolina (Thank you!) , and God bless the American People….we are one!

      Reagan really had a way with words.. Telling people the truth and beliving in America..

      It's amazing that the freedom that Reagan brought to the world during his time in office just by standing up (not bending over and appoligizing) and providing an alternative to the socialist, fachist, marxist, and dictator regeims of the time.. As the Tea Party offers the same to alternative to the current Nanny State Utopia (big government) that stiffles our individual freedoms today.

      Every day I hear liberals telling this country we HAVE to live the way they tell us to- and they kept telling us we are trying to make them live a wrong way–The only way we ever said to live is by the constitution, the USA law of the land. I say there are lots of places out there that doesnt have a costitution like ours, go live THERE and stop trying to change this place into what its like in the rest of the world,other people come here to get away from how the world treats them. Is it so wrong to want to live FREE.That is the beauty of this place we can all choose and live a life we want to as long as we keep the laws of the constitution -How great is that! I think most of us agree with that —the liberal just dont know it yet.I hope the vote in nov. makes them stutter. keep up the good work

    4. Lest we forget who made us a great nation and who we are as a people.

      How come people won't see the difference? Reagans words inspires the initiative to want to self govern. He respects individual freedom and promotes it's strength. The words of this man truly motivates the responsibilities necessary to handle ones own welfare called life within ones own control. It's the duty of all lives existing. I grew up in a pity party of people!

      Obama obviously wants to take the control of self governing away or he wouldn't be focused on providing contraception control for women and even while tornadoes across the nation are killing people.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
