Crisis on the border

There is a crisis happening along our southern border right now. Tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors are pouring into the U.S. The numbers are staggering and overwhelming. In fiscal year 2011, an estimated 4,059 children from Latin America crossed into the U.S. illegally. In fiscal year 2013, that number was as high as 21,537.

Harry Reid and Senate Democrats are gearing up for a vote on a Constitutional amendment to repeal the First Amendment. Some might say that statement is over the top. Here’s why we disagree. When trying to figure out the real purpose of a piece of legislation, or a proposed amendment to the Constitution, the first thing we do at Tea Party Patriots is look to see who has cosponsored it.

News broke[1] on Monday that House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) might not serve another full two-year term with the gavel. Whether Boehner gives up the Speaker’s chair tomorrow or a year from tomorrow, it will be a victory for conservatives who cherish personal freedom, economic freedom and a debt-free future. By all means, Mr. Speaker, if your heart’s not in this, just leave now and avoid the rush. Regardless of the date of any potential early departure, Boehner’s legacy will be one of capitulation and shame with conservative Americans. In 2013, John Boehner ...

“This law will destroy what's left of the middle class and will lower healthcare services, while increasing premiums and putting bureaucrats who are not subject to this law in between me, my doctor and my bank account,” Sherry vented. The self-employed Florida resident speaks from experience as she copes with higher premiums in an economic environment that provides little opportunity for financial growth. “[I] tried to do the right thing and purchased a surgical/hospitalization policy with one wellness visit a year that includes labs, mammogram and colonoscopy.
