Conservatives are ready to stand up and fight for tax reform; the question is… does the GOP have the stomach for a fight that they can actually win?

The Left’s “inclusiveness” doesn’t extend to basic orthodox Christian beliefs or the people who believe them.

It’s about time. The tide is beginning to turn against Antifa and their cohorts as more moderate leftists begin denouncing the violent acts and totalitarian beliefs of the far-left fringe. More Democrats must stand up and openly, and loudly condemn the leftist mobs.

Constitution.com 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
