Resolutions: Learn the issues, speak up
Two of my new year resolutions are to do a better job of educating myself politically and to do a better job of speaking or writing my observations and my interpretations of our political situations.

Voting booth only way to undo health care 'reform'
In the Preamble of the Constitution it states, "promote the general welfare." It does not say "provide the general welfare." The same liberals that brought you "political correctness" are now trying to level the playing field of our economic system by taxing the alleged wealthy (read small business owners and middle class American tax payers) to provide for the few. They seem to have forgotten that it is the small business owners that already provide the jobs and therefore the money for the few. If they get taxed out of existence it won't be the few that (they) have to provide for, it will be the many. The absolute truth of the matter is that politicians need and use taxes to stay in power and for no other reason. They could care less about "the people".
