How can freedom-loving Americans defend what ...

First responders are the unsung heroes of any disaster. They are the ones who rush into danger while everyone else is rushing out. They are the ones who risk their lives to save others and also the ones who see the horror and devastation up close and personal. 

For disaster specialists, the events of September 11 were unlike anything they had ever dealt with before. The scale of the disaster was massive and the emotional toll was im...

Monuments are often built to commemorate moments in history. Removing them means forgetting the parts of our history we don’t like. George Floyd's death nearly two years ago, however, sparked critical conversations about systemic racism in the county. It also sparked a movement for the removal, renaming, and relocation of monuments and other symbols of the Confederacy.

 

Many people argue that Confederate monuments are important ...

Police officers are the first line of defense against criminals and violence in society. They put their lives on the line every day, and often pay the ultimate sacrifice. Some call them heroes. We call them our friends, our family, and our neighbors. They are the men and women who put on the badge and risk everything to serve and protect their communities. 

In today's society, police officers are constantly under scrutiny. They ...

The Florida House Bill 1557, popularly known as the "Don't Say Gay" bill, continues to stir controversy. The bill has been criticized by advocates of the LGBTQ community as discriminatory, while others believe that this gives parents the right to know what their children are being taught in school and that it would help protect their children from being exposed to gender ideology at a young age. 

As the "Don't Sa...

Despite all the attention focused on the general election, the primary election is really what matters.

This is why it's so important for people to vote in the primaries - because that's when the real decisions are made.

The legislation, which reinforces parents’ fundamental rights to make decisions regarding the upbringing of their children, has drawn national critic...

he 2022 Omnibus Appropriations Bill, which contains funding allocations for every federal department and program, is overbearing and ridiculous. The bill is packed with surprises, from the funding of unconstitutional agencies to the funding of provisions that have nothing to do with keeping the government running. While there are certainly some good aspects to the bill, it's full of pork barrel spending that does nothing to hel...

Founded on the principles of liberty and equality, the Constitution is a living document that defines the foundation of our government and the rights and freedoms of every American. It is a testament to the founding fathers' belief in democracy. Upholding the Constitution and protecting it from those who would seek to undermine it are absolutely important.

One form of government that is often up for debate is communism. There have been a lot of discussions about this type of system and whether or not it is a viable way to govern a country. Some people believe it is the best way, whereas others think it would be a disaster. The idea of everyone being equal sounds great on paper, but it does not work in the real world.
