  • Revolving Republicans

    Some 25 years ago, I changed my life.

    A visit inside a church opened my eyes to the destructive life I was living, financed by welfare checks generously provided by American taxpayers.

    I got off welfare, went to work, got politically active and became a Republican. I didn’t become a Republican because of what the party looked like. I became a Republican because of what the party stood for: individual freedom, traditional values, with a view that government’s role is to protect our freedom at home and abroad.

    Congress needs to investigate IRS

    On May 10, America learned the IRS – perhaps the most frightening of all government agencies – has been singling out and targeting conservative groups, including tea party groups. The IRS has waged a three-year war against the tea party, harassing our groups and even auditing our individual members. This abuse of power is unacceptable and unconstitutional, and it must stop.
