Tim Scott Makes History With Appointment to U.S. Senate

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley appointed Rep. Tim Scott to be the replacement for outgoing Sen. Jim DeMint. The move was highly anticipated since DeMint announced that he would be departing the Senate on December 6th. Scott, a Tea Party favorite, will bring a strong message of conservative principles to the Senate; one that is centered around limited government, lower taxes, and free enterprise.

Government Plays Favorites with Prosecutions

To friends of freedom, it seems obvious that the government should not be choosing favorites. On the contrary, the role of government should be limited to ensuring that the playing field is level, and industries are not subjected to different rules based on government’s understanding and support of what they do. Take, for example, the way in which an oil company is treated when birds are killed on their watch and when the same happens, to a much greater degree, due to wind turbines.

Mr. President - Get Off the Sideline, Get on the Pipeline

The time for politics has passed, or so you would think.Throughout his campaign, President Obama promised to make a decision on the Keystone XL pipeline after the election was over.  Nearly six weeks later however, despite facts that reveal the project to be a bipartisan, pro-energy, pro-growth pursuit, the President has still failed to address the issue.

50 > 1: Changing Washington from the Outside

Ask your neighbors and co-workers a simple question: "What are the wealthiest counties in America?" Here are the answers I got:“Is Manhattan a county? That has to be one of the richest.”“Which county has Beverly Hills?”“San Francisco County has to be up there. Silicon Valley too.”

Around the World, Citizens Flee High Tax Rates

Under Socialist President François Holllande, this new rate will become effective in 2013 and has led many of the highest earners to leave the country- with their money. Now, this punitive tax rate has hit the limelight.
