I could rattle off economic facts about tourism trends, underwater mortgages and unemployment numbers, but Nevadans don't need statistics to tell them what they see with their own eyes.
Washington is out of control. President Barack Obama's divisive politics and destructive policies are tearing our nation apart. Worst of all, America's workers are getting punched in the gut.
Nevadans have seen first-hand what happens when Washington recklessness, personal greed and irresponsibility collide — bubbles burst, businesses go bust and families suffer. more >>
In 1979, the year before Republicans nominated Ronald Reagan as their presidential candidate, the Rev. Jerry Falwell and conservative activist Paul Weyrich founded the Moral Majority.
It was at the Christian university in Lynchburg, Virginia, Liberty University, founded by Rev. Falwell, where Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) just announced his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination.
Although Cruz made no reference to the Moral Majority in his remarks, his thinking clearly is where Falwell's and Weyrich's was when they founded that organization. That getting a widely politically inactive universe of church going evangelical Christians politically engaged can change America. more >>

Robert P. George says the sexual revolution is hurting lower income Americans of all races, not just black communities, with family disintegration contributing to poverty.
In his analysis of the state of American families, George referred to a 1965 government report by the-late politician and sociologist Daniel Patrick Moynihan who believed the crisis befalling the African-American community was due, in part, to the lack of a family structure, which leads to "juvenile delinquency and adult crime."
Moynihan's conclusions about the need for strong families in both the African-American community and America overall "were hard pills to swallow," George said, speaking about the legacy and importance of Moynihan's report on Thursday, at the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission's Leadership Summit in Nashville, Tennessee, that discussed the need for a Gospel-centered approach to racial reconciliation. more >>
Arizona State Sen. Sylvia Allen, R-Snowflake, is under fire for suggesting that there should be a law that would make church attendance mandatory for Americans every Sunday.
During a committee hearing on Tuesday about legislation which would allow individuals who have permits to carry concealed weapons to bring them into public buildings, Allen declared that she felt the committee should be debating a bill about mandatory church attendance instead of guns.
"I believe what's happening to our country is that there is a horrible erosion of the soul of America," said Allen whose comments were first highlighted on Twitter by Democratic Sen. Steve Farley of Tucson, who was at that same meeting. more >>
