The Obama Administration has given every indication that it will reignite the debate over the economically damaging carbon tax. This comes as no surprise. What should come as a surprise, however, is the willingness of some Republicans to be supportive of such a draconian tax.

As a kid, I had a bookcase devoted to 24 leather-bound tomes containing “the Sum of Human Knowledge.” Whenever I had to do a school report, from aardvarks to Zanzibar, I would pull out the correct volume of the Encyclopedia Britannica and take notes. (It was tougher to report on Krakatoa and Martin Luther since my cousins’ Irish Setter ate K-L. [Remind me to tell you about the time he chewed through a wall.])

On the FreedomCast today, Editor of RedState.com and Fox News contributor Erick Erickson joins me to discuss the conservative/libertarian divide, the importance of finding candidates that will fight their own side and the importance of winning over Ron Paul millennials and expanding the GOP tent.
Common Core - Resources and Information from the Experts
The state of our nation's education and the standards by which both students and educators are held should be of importance to all of us. Common Core State Standards are national math and language arts standards that are being implemented across the country despite pushback from legislators, teachers and parents.
Just in case you needed another reason to love Texas, Governor Rick Perry has given us one. Yesterday, Perry signed education reforms into law which will shake up graduation requirements and put less emphasis on testing. By signing House Bills 5, 809, 842, and 3662, as well as Senate Bill 441, Perry achieved a significant overhaul of public education.
Governor Brewer About to Force Obamacare on Arizona
Once feted by grassroots conservatives nationwide, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer moved radically to the left in 2013. In her State of the State address, she surprised many by embracing Obamacare, calling for a massive expansion of Medicaid.
