Mississippi is the one of the most conservative states in the nation. So why are they stuck with one of the most liberal Republican U.S. Senators?
The good news is, it doesn't look like that will be the case much longer. Recent polls show conservative Chris McDaniel, who is challenging Cochran in the Republican Senate primary, with a lead in the race -- and the momentum is all on his side. A poll conducted by shows McDaniel leading by 4%, and a second poll now has him leading 43%-36%.
Thad Cochran has the lowest Obama-era ratings of any Republican Senator, according to the American Conservative Union, and as McDaniel points out, has not led a single fight against the Obama administration.
It's time for a real conservative Senator from Mississippi -- vote Chris McDaniel on June 3rd!
Senator Cruz published four reports on his website about the Obama Administration's violation of American law. These reports include a look at the administration's failure to follow the Constitution and even change parts of the President's favorite law without consulting Congress.
Supreme Court Upholds Prayer
In a five to four decision the Supreme Court upheld a city council's right to pray before a meeting. The first amendment challenge argued that the Town of Greece was establishing a religion by merely recognizing the divine hand of God prior to meetings. The fact that no religion was forced on anyone by the city council recognizing the hand of the Almighty did not seem to make a difference to those opposing the town of Greece. Thankfully the Court sided with Greece. This case along with the other cases in recent years have shown a trend towards a reversal in Court precedent, from the doctrine of separation toward a more traditional interpretation of the First Amendment. The traditional and correct interpretation holds that the First Amendment does allow members of the Government to engage in religious activity - it just does not allow the Government to force a religious belief on the entire nation.
This decision is a blow to those who wish to see religion compartmentalized and taken out of the public eye. Ben Sharipo in his excellent article explains why the break down of religion in public is so important to the left; "The greatest bulwark against an overreaching government, as tyrants know, is a religious population. That is because religious people form communities of interest adverse to government control of their lives; religious communities rely on their families and each other rather than an overarching government utilizing force. The greatest obstacle to the welfare state is not greed but private charity that makes the welfare state irrelevant; the greatest obstacle to re-education of children in the name of the collective is allegiance to a higher power. More than that, the greatest obstacle to the state as god is an actual God above the state."
Ben Sasse for U.S. Senate
Ben Sasse is a fifth-generation Nebraskan, a constitutional conservative, a homeschool dad, and an outspoken opponent of Obamacare. He's running for Nebraska's open United States Senate seat, and has the support of Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Sarah Palin, the Family Research Council Action PAC, and many more.
We are proud to support Ben Sasse for U.S. Senate. As President of Midland University in Nebraska, Sasse was one of the youngest university presidents in the history of American higher education and turned around a university on the verge of closing down. Because of his leadership, for the past four years Midland University has been the fastest-growing school in the state.
Ben Sasse recognizes that it is not enough to stop bad ideas -- we must put forward free-market solutions and conservatives must shape the Republican party into the party of ideas. His leadership, conservative values, and real-world experience are much-needed in Washington.
