The Manhattan Declaration

Because the sanctity of human life, the dignity of marriage as a union of husband and wife, and the freedom of religion are foundational principles of justice and the common good, we affirm:

1. The profound, inherent, and equal dignity of every human life
2. Marriage as a union of one man and one woman
3. Religious liberty and the inherent freedom of human beings

This is the Manhattan Declaration. If you care about these issues, then you should consider signing the declaration.

America will survive this bad decision

Congratulations to the redistributor-in-chief and his supporters. They campaigned on more of the same policies of the last four years that did not bear fruit, but they have won. What this means is that, with two distinct choices in front of them, Americans chose more government dependence and higher taxes as a solution to their problems.

Mitt Romney would have taken us on a different path, a path where the government's role is limited in size and scope and a government that stays clear of stifling economic growth. Romney had the experience which uniquely qualified him to help rekindle the animal spirits of the American economy, but that was not to be.

There were many other important issues on which voters based their decisions, but the economy was the most important. We shall see what happens in the coming months and years, but I believe America will survive this bad decision by an electorate that has increasingly become more dependent on government. One way or another, this trajectory must and will be reversed. May God Bless America!

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8 (The Bible)

A little lesson from the Gipper

A little lesson from the Gipper on why socialism (redistribution of wealth) does not work. Funny and instructive.
