Our history establishes that many, many of our Presidents were not Governors, nor real professionals in any particular field. Some were farmers, journalists, ranchers, engineers, soldiers, sailors and pilots. So what are the requirements for a man or woman running for the Presidential seat of our USA?

No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

Our Government - A Cesspool of Corruption

Obama's Lies

“Instead of taking up issues that really matter to the American people, like defunding Planned Parenthood, standing up against Iran, passing ‘Kate’s Law’ and ending sanctuary cities, the Senate chose to satisfy the demands of big businesses with even bigger pocketbooks.Ted Cruz, July 26, 2015

It breaks one’s heart to have to make a statement like that about the “United States Government.” But anyway you shake it – our Government is no longer of the people, by the people or for the people.

It has taken our freedoms, our rights and demonized our Constitution – the Constitution (our roadmap that ensures our liberty and freedom.) When a Government makes decisions without the consent of the → Read More

Americans Want the

Donald Trump

The Republicans campaigning and running for President in 2016 better regroup and get real – their constituents deserve better than what they’re getting from these Republicans in 2015.

Americans want the real deal – a man or women who is a leader not a political robot dressed up in a fancy suit spieling fancy sophisticated hand-written idiotic speeches. They’re tired of the lies and false promises: they’re tired of being abused and misused.

They want a man or woman who has real solutions for reviving the economy, securing the borders, balancing the budget and most of all a candidate that believes in the Constitution and one who is willing to stand toe to toe with those who wish to destroy our Country.

Trump & Cruz Say "Make America Great Again"

Donald Trump

America is waking up after 7 years of nightmares, false promises and Governmental manipulation. It’s a new dawn, there appears to be more than idle promises of hope and change on the horizon. Americans are shaking off the dirt and grime of politics as usual.

They are reviving their hope and dreams of leaving an awesome legacy to their children and grandchildren – a legacy that will instill pride and freedom for those who follow in their footsteps.

In 1933 banks were crumbling, 13 million Americans unemployed and the economy was in the pits. Americans had lost hope and were terrified of what the future might hold for them and their Country.

Senator Ted Cruz Says Mitch McConnell Lied, Compares Him To Harry Reid

cruz_mcconnell

It’s not much of a secret that Senator Ted Cruz pulls no punches when he is ready to speak his mind. He’s ruffled more than a few feathers during his tenure in the United States Senate and he has never had a great relationship with the Republican leadership in that esteemed body of blowhards. That relationship just got even more testy, as Cruz landed a verbal one two punch smack in the middle of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Fox News – An extraordinary scene unfolded on the Senate floor Friday as Republican Sen. Ted Cruz bluntly accused Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of lying and said he’s running the Senate like his Democratic predecessor.

The charges from the Texas senator and GOP presidential candidate were → Read More

The Short Attention Span Of Americans

attention_span

I was browsing through some of the different news stories on Fox News and came across an article that has really gotten me thinking. And it’s not even a story about news, but rather about how the news is covered. It makes me wonder just how much Americans are really paying attention to their world and what is going on around them. It also makes me concerned about our chances to turn America around from traveling the direction it is traveling. I think that wonder and concern are both merited.

We live in a fast-moving era of information. Many people are satisfied to tweet about their outrage on any given topic on Twitter. Many people are satisfied with sharing a picture or a headline about → Read More

Donald Trump - Shaking Up The GOP

Donald Trump

There is no question about it, the race for the GOP presidential nomination is heating up. Sixteen candidates are officially in the race. I asked my brother the other day if John Kasich’s cook would like to join the fun. I figured he might as well, since everyone else is jumping in. Can you imagine what the first debate is going to be like? They may have to rent the Super Dome, just to have a big enough stage for all the bodies and the accompanying egos.

The biggest news of the campaign, thus far, is Donald Trump. The man is doing what he does best, being Donald Trump. I have enjoyed more than a few chuckles at his antics and at the people → Read More
