Do we want to give our children monuments — tremendous buildings, vast bureaucracies, bulwarks of human collectivism? Or do we want to give them freedom? Do we want to build pyramids? Or do we want to build families?

Barack Obama remains well liked because Americans want to like him. They're willfully blinding themselves to the radical Obama. And that's just the way he likes it.

President Obama doesn't truly believe in the First Amendment. He believes in a restricted vision of free speech, a politically correct vision. That's not free speech at all. It's tyranny. Which is why he sounded so much like Ahmadinejad at the U.N.

For Americans to come together, we need a leader. A great, big, powerful leader, who will help unify us. Somebody who, by his very presence, can demand our attention and symbolize our common goals.

Tuesday night the RNC showed that it has something it hasn't had since Reagan: star power and appeal to independents.

If Obama can't convince Americans that Romney-Ryan will destroy America, he'll have to destroy America himself by separating Americans by race, sexuality and religion to to ensure his re-election. That's precisely what he's doing.

Neither Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel nor Boston Mayor Thomas Menino can legally bar Chick-fil-A from their cities. But their attitude — that businesses are worthy of government bans simply for failing to tow the liberal line — now infuses the Democratic Party.

California is going the way of Stockton and San Bernardino. The only difference is that when the state does go bankrupt, the federal government will undoubtedly try to step in. But what happens when the federal government goes bankrupt for pursuing Californian policies?

The Obamacare decision destroys the basic concept of American liberty: freedom to live as you choose without interference by the federal government, so long as you don't affect the lives of others. Now the government can penalize you in the privacy of your own home for failing to do as they say.
