Conservative on Target! Soldiers, Guns and Christians

Gutting America's military is no way to keep the peace: The terrible irony here is that military spending has been on a steady decline since 1965, as seen in the nearby chart. And, as the defense portion of the budget has contracted for nearly five decades, entitlement spending has exploded. The Heritage Foundation describes the consequences of the latest cuts: "Meanwhile, America's enemies are watching. They can count our troops, our planes, and our ships. They can look on as America's military retreats and loses its ability to project forces around the world. And they will quickly realize that the United States will not be able to cover its responsibilities worldwide." In other words, Obama, Panetta and their liberal Democrat allies like Frank are playing chicken with American security.

Nation’s First Constitutional Carry Law Passes New Hampshire House: Hopefully, other states will follow New Hampshire’s example and pass their own constitutional carry laws and allow American’s to fully exercise their Second Amendment rights to bear and carry firearms as our Founding Fathers intended. > Over a hundred years after William Wilberforce’s death, C.S. Lewis remarked in Mere Christianity: If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. The apostles themselves, who set on foot the conversion of the Roman Empire, the great men who built up the Middle Ages, the English evangelicals who abolished the Slave Trade, all left their mark on Earth, precisely because their minds were preoccupied with Heaven. . . . Aim at Heaven and you will get earth ‘thrown in’: aim at earth and you will get neither.
