The federal government was created by the states. Simple enough, right? In the era of massive federal government expansion, simple facts are easily lost. Lest we lose hold of our plumb line, even the simplest, most basic tenets of our founding principles bear repeating.
I’ll admit it, I only watch the Super Bowl for the commercials. Usually, my favorite is one of the funny commercials but, this year, I have to give the prize to “God Made a Farmer.” Yes, the woman who never gets sappy over television, books, or movies, got sappy over a commercial for a truck.
Ask Your Representatives to Support H.R. 444 - Tell President Obama to Submit a Balanced Budget!
Dear FreedomWorks member, As one of our millions of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your Representative and urge him or her to co-sponsor the “Require a PLAN Act”, H.R. 444. Introduced by Rep. Tom Price (GA-6), the bill would require the President to submit a budget plan that specifically details when and how it would achieve balance.
Lately, the left and leftist media in particular, love to lecture Americans on what we need and don't need. "You don't need to protect yourself with that type of weapon" they say, "you don't need to drive an SUV," "you don't need 20 oz of Dr Pepper," "you don't need to make that much money," and the list goes on.

Chicken wings and Super Bowl Sunday.Has there ever been a more perfect combination of sports and snacks than the chicken wing/football combination we will experience this weekend?I say, nay.The Obama administration however, has somehow managed to dampen the excitement of this year's Super Bowl, by causing small businesses to panic over chicken wing supply while simultaneously raising market prices to record highs.

They visualize parents storming the school with pitchforks and torches to rescue their children. They picture teachers and administrators leaping ninja-like to the other side of the fence to rage against the system. They couldn’t be more wrong. Take me, for example.

What We Learned From the Trillion Dollar Coin Debate
The debt ceiling debate reached a new level of absurdity when some pundits began tossing around the idea of a $1 trillion coin. Instead of advocating for spending cuts to avoid hitting the $16.4 trillion debt limit, proponents of the one trillion dollar coin believe that the Federal Reserve just needs to create more money. They want the U.S.
