Recess Accountability: Townhalls

Conservative accountability goes beyond casting a vote. Building a society in which freedom, opportunity, prosperity, and the civil society flourish requires a sustained effort.  That is why we have compiled a non-exhaustive list of upcoming townhalls, all of which provide excellent opportunities to discuss important issues with members of Congress. Make sure to visit the […]

Just Which Freedoms Are We Losing?

Original Post: Just Which Freedoms Are We Losing?.

I confess. When I write about freedoms lost, I don’t itemize the freedoms. I don’t feel too bad, though, because almost no one does. Itemizing sucks.

Surprised? Transportation Empowerment Act Was Ronald Reagan’s Idea—In 1967!

Original Post: Surprised? Transportation Empowerment Act Was Ronald Reagan’s Idea—In 1967!.

Last week I blogged that Ronald Reagan would love the Transportation Empowerment Act (TEA). I included audio of Reagan talking to Bill Buckley on Firing Line about the burden on states from onerous federal taxes and grants. Forgive me, but that was sort of a tease. Here’s the meat: Reagan wrote a proposal for the…

What They’re Saying: Export-Import Bank Supporters Undermine Obama’s Bank

The debate over the future of the Export-Import Bank can be difficult to follow, in part because proponents of the Bank are often in conflict with one another. Here are the latest examples: Does Export-Import Bank provide cheap loans? Tony Fratto, Hamilton Place Strategies: All of you that have been writing that Ex-Im makes cheap […]

Original Post: Here Is Rand Paul’s Secret to Broadening the Republican Base.

Have you ever felt like tuning out, giving up, and just riding out whatever storm comes down the pipe next? I have. Many times. Every week. Sometimes more than once a day. I think we can both give ourselves a pass on that feeling. In fact, I think we can both give ourselves a pass…

What Francis Slay Won’t Tell You About Missouri Roads—VIDEO

Original Post: What Francis Slay Won’t Tell You About Missouri Roads—VIDEO.

Proponents of Amendment 7 are telling a lot of lies. (I’m looking at you, St. Louis Business Journal.) The biggest lie involves the quality of Missouri’s roads and bridges. While Mayor Slay and the St. Louis Business Journal tell you Missouri’s roads are “crumbling,” two independent studies say the opposite. In fact, Missouri has some…
