  • Results delivered. A new year!

    “Ryan Johnson and MAF have become the eyes, ears, and voice of conservative Missourians. Since 2013, Ryan has informed and educated the public, while at the same time, holding legislators accountable for their actions. Ryan’s strong sense of right and wrong led to far more conservative legislative outcomes. Missouri will be forever grateful for all […]

  • Trust but Verify

    Approaching Christmas 2016, many Missouri Republicans and Conservatives alike have a sense of optimism that has been a long time coming. The prospect of Koster for Governor hung over us like a dark, dense fog for seven plus years and has now been swept away. All of the sudden, it feels like morning again in […]

  • Whom Shall We Elect?

    In our system of government it is supposed to be “We the People”, not “We the Lobbyists” who rule. With that in mind, we posted the article last year “Whom should we elect?” in honor of former Sen. John Lamping’s four years of public service in the Missouri State Senate. John had just received MAF’s […]

  • Reforming Government Unions Would Provide Greater Worker Choice

    Government unions negotiate with taxpayer dollars, yet they are not held accountable to their own members or to Missouri taxpayers.  With the rate of government union membership five times that of union membership in the private sector, now is the time to enact government union reform on behalf of Missouri workers. The reforms we believe […]

  • In defense of freedom

    Introduction We are surrounded and outnumbered in defense of your religious freedom, but that is how we prefer to fight! The Religious Freedom Amendment (SJR39) protects religious belief concerning marriage of two individuals of the same sex or gender. The Amendment is neutral, meaning that it protects religious beliefs about marriage no matter what your […]

  • Cut to grow: tax cuts grow jobs and create a healthy economy

    Missouri republicans and democrats both agree: Income tax cuts foster economic growth. I know this might sound like a pretty bold statement considering that just last year the Missouri General Assembly was split along party lines when it came time to vote on Missouri’s first income tax cut (SB 509). In fact, the democrats made […]

  • Why Smart Phones Are More Popular Than the Tea Party

    Original Post: Why Smart Phones Are More Popular Than the Tea Party.

    Does it bother you that people would give up essential freedoms before they’d give up their iPhone? While 26 percent of Americans report that they can’t live without their smartphone, only 20 percent of Americans say they can’t live without sex, according to this infographic compiled by FinancesOnline.com, a personal finance website. Seriously. It should bother…

  • Want to Homeschool in Ohio? I hope you’ve been deemed worthy.

    Want to homeschool in Ohio? You’ll get to as soon as you are approved as a-ok by government bureaucrats. You thought it was up to you? Oh silly subject, that’s a ridiculous thing to think. Only the government is qualified to decide if you are homeschooling material.

    It requires all parents who homeschool to undergo a social services investigation which would ultimately determine if homeschooling would be permitted. Social workers would have to interview parents and children separately, conduct background checks and determine whether homeschooling is recommended or not. If it is not recommended, parents would have to submit to an “intervention” before further consideration of their request to homeschool

    The reasoning for attempting to pass this law is super simple. The government failed to do their job and protect a child from abuse. Abuse they were made aware of, did nothing to stop and the child died. So, their answer is to make more miserable failure of laws and take more of your rights away, further subjugating serfs to the masters, which will do nothing to stop abusers from killing children if the government isn’t going to do the job they are already tasked with. It would seem there is no end to the things the government fails at, yet thinks that is there are just enough laws, they will some how succeed. This is false and losing our personal and parental rights will not make the children safer.

    Soon you will have to make a choice. Either all children are property of the state, to control and raise as they see fit or children are members of the family unit, where imperfect parents will make mistakes and people who have no business raising kids do. There is no other way for this to go. As parental rights are eroded to make up for the failures of government, soon they will come for your children too.

    It is going to be a very sad day when I say to my granddaughter, “I remember when we were free my dear.”
