Even as 2nd Amendment advocates scored a small victory when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) struck Senator Dianne Feinstein’s (D-Calif.) scary-gun ban bill from the legislative push for firearm control, knee-jerk absurdity continues throughout the Nation as a result of government demonization of gun owners.
Yesterday morning, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) was welcomed to speak on the topic of immigration reform by the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

Senator Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) recent old school filibuster on the Senate floor has made him more popular than ever among many American conservatives.

With sequestration looming, U.S. Park […]
Always lead by example. If you were brought up to render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s, hopefully your parents set a good example by paying their taxes. Evidently, President Barack Obama’s White House staff didn’t get that kind of upbringing. Forty of his White House aides owe a combined $333,485 in back taxes to […]
Senator Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) passionate filibuster earlier this week has done far more than require the Federal government to specify whether or not it will kill Americans in the U.S. with drones.
