NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. — While the rights Americans enjoy in the Constitution come from God, President Barack Obama is curtailing those rights, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-Ken.), winner of the the CPAC presidential straw poll, declared.
"Our rights are innate, they come from our Creator, and no government can take them away from us," Paul declared at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday. Nevertheless, he argued that President Obama is denying Americans those God-given rights. "We must stop this President from shredding the Constitution!"
Paul called upon "America's next generation of liberty lovers" to channel the spirit of abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison, who did not compromise on slavery. "For thirty years, Garrison stood as politicians whimpered and compromised and left their fellow men in bondage … he rose above those politicians that would leave the country half free, half slave!" the senator declared. Paul compared the issue of slavery to the issue of privacy, declaring that freedom is more valuable than prosperity. more >>

A political strategy firm has developed a tool that can approximate how many people with a certain name are Republican or Democrat, and how many attend religious services weekly. Former pastor and "Duck Dynasty" star Alan Robertson and Jim Bob Duggar, the patriarch of the Duggar family on "19 Kids and Counting," agree that Christian parents should carefully consider what to name their children.
"The Bible and God give a lot of significance to names, especially in the Old Testament days," Alan Robertson told The Christian Post in a statement on Friday. Robertson explained that "names could signify life change – like Jacob (Deceiver) to Israel (Struggles with God) and also described attitudes and character."
Jim Bob Duggar, patriarch of TLC's reality TV show "19 Kids and Counting," agreed with the importance of names, and emphasized of other significant factors in raising children as well. "I think it is important for parents to prayerfully consider what they name their child, and for that name to express what they want their child to become," Duggar told CP in an interview on Friday. more >>
