Why is Socialism on the Rise? | Ben Shapiro at Townhall

    Ben Shapiro at Townhall: Conservatives talk results when discussing the shortcomings of socialism. They’re right: Socialism is ineffective, destructive and stunting to the human spirit. But they’re wrong to abandon the field of morality when discussing the contrast between freedom and control. And it’s this abandonment — this perverse laziness — that has led to socialism’s comeback, even though within living memory, we have seen continental economies collapse and millions slaughtered in the name of this false god.

America, We Have a Problem — It’s a Constitutional Crisis

    Fred J. Eckert at Townhall: America, we have a problem: We are in the midst of a serious constitutional crisis. Consider what has been happening in our nation’s capital: President Barack Obama has asserted and acted upon the notion that he can at whim and by decree make changes to law – and Speaker Boehner is complicit both by his continuing acceptance of the president’s unilaterally changing law and by his publicly urging the president to do so one more time.

    AP: Announcements Monday by Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah and Georgia Sens. Johnny Isakson and Saxby Chambliss, as well as a strong hint by Sen.

Rising Riches: 1 In 5 In Us Reaches Affluence

GOP Suffers from Feud Poisoning: Core Principles

    FRC Washington Update (12/6/2013): The tension started earlier this year, when House leadership started throwing its weight — and significant money — behind two activist homosexual candidates. Understandably, that bothered conservatives like Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.), who refused to give his party a pass. “GOP leaders can do whatever they want to do” in donating to gay Republicans, he said, but they shouldn’t force other members to contribute through the funding arms like the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC). While Forbes has been blasted for his comments, he knows — as well as we do — that this debate is about a lot more than someone’s sexual preference.
