Democratic leaders fail to do their jobs

Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a budget for FY 2012 called "Cut, Cap, and Balance." The U.S. Senate would be expected to offer it's version of a 2012 budget. Next a committee would be formed to hammer out a budget acceptable to both houses and the president. That's the way the American people expect government to be managed.

Your Views: Be careful what you wish for on Electoral College

Lots of people want the Electoral College to be abolished, and to establish term limits on our officials. In some cases that might be a good thing. I sure can think of lots of people in our government I'd like to toss out!

Your Views: Consequences of public apathy could be felt in SPLOST vote

When I lost my wife due to illness, there were times I have said to myself, "Where do I go from here?" I have tried to build my life in the comparison of building a house by asking myself: It is not how your house looks like after it is built, but what is the house is build upon?
