Bureaucrats are just full of Christmas cheer, aren’t they?

Our federal agencies don't regulate because there's a need -- they do it simply because they can.

D.C. suburbs richer than Silicon Valley (and just about everyone else)

Check out the latest from Convention of States Action President Mark Meckler:

“Why would all of the wealth of this nation be centered around Washington, D.C.? What do they produce?

All they do is pillage the rest of the nation.

Plunder and pillage: that’s the primary industry of D.C. and its suburbs.”

And what do they produce?

Recent polling in Kentucky shows a national trend: we the people want a Convention of States. In order to make it a reality, it takes everyday Americans asking their state legislators to vote yes for COS.

It is a question many Americans ask themselves when they see how out-of-touch the federal government has become. While it may seem impossible to get Congress to act in America’s interest, there is a way to make it happen.

A Convention of States can force term limits on Congress and fiscal responsibility, making Congress act they way Congress should. Get involved here → http://ow.ly/SeTE50xEQHq

How the Supreme Court became the most powerful branch of the federal government

We have long complained about illegitimate “judicial activism” and the ways it has undermined our self-governance. It is time for the states to use the tool the Constitution provides in Article V to curtail judicial tyranny once and for all.

For too long the courts have wielded almost omnipotent power. No more.

National debt keeps climbing, tops $23 trillion for first time in American history

If this feels like deja-vu, there’s a reason: only nine short months ago, we were announcing that the debt had topped $22 trillion.

That means the federal government has expanded the debt by $111.1 billion each month since February.

Here’s what else costs $111.1 billion…

Can you guess how long it's taken to add $1 trillion to the debt?
