What's the Point of Net Neutrality?
Today, over one-third of the human population uses the Internet. Some to let you know that a Nigerian prince has a cool million in cash he needs to wire you, others to let their grandmother in another country see them and read them a bedtime story on programs like Skype. It may very well be the greatest human invention for communication and information sharing. So what then is net neutrality, and why should we care about it?

Women and the Priesthood in the LDS Church
(4 comments) There is a movement now asking the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to ordain women to the priesthood. With its leader facing excommunication for her actions, this article is an attempt to point out what went wrong on both sides of the discussion and why.

The Next Four Years
(1 comments) President Obama's second-term win means that America will not fall quickly into economic collapse. However, if the president keeps going in the direction he has been leading the country during his first term, things are not likely to get much better for Main Street either.

Super PACs Control American Politics
(5 comments) Money has played a huge role in the GOP primaries. Not in the race between Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney, but in the the different campaign strategies of Mitt Romney and Buddy Roemer.

Obama vs Romney vs. Santorum: Who best for America?
(4 comments) It is clear that neither Obama nor Romney are the best choices, but until Americans start looking outside the box, they are the best options we have. If all voters have to go on is Romney's rhetoric, it may very well be better to continue with what kind of works -- President Obama -- than with Romney's ideas that really don't stand a chance of bettering the lives of Americans.

Rick Santorum's Vague Plans will not Fix the Nation's Woes
Rick Santorum is currently backed by the religious right. He has strongly denounced what he deems as immoral actions, espousing extreme views regarding American freedoms -- many of which actually threatening freedom. Some of Santorum's comments make him appear willing to impose his worldview on other nations, which is good news for social conservatives, but terrible news for fiscal conservatives and the nation as a whole.

The Mormon Menace
Looking at Romney's platform, it should be clear that he is a Republican running for office, not a Mormon aiming at the White House.

Money in Politics has taken America from a Democracy to a Plutocracy
Welcome to the New Plutocracy of America. A plutocracy is a country by the rich and for the rich. We are told that the United States is a country by and for the people, but this is no longer the case, due to two major blunders by the U.S. Supreme Court.

The U.S. Trade Deficit is Killing the Economy
(4 comments) If the United States were a business, it would be a dismal failure. Its stocks would be in the tank. The president and all of Congress would be fired. The stockholders (the American people) would have lost everything -- all of their holdings. The doors would close, the workers would be laid off. The United States would have no choice but to shut down.

Mitt Romney: The Everlasting Candidate
(2 comments) Michigan has suffered greatly due to the fallacy of laissez-faire "free" trade polices. Surely Mitt Romney will have noticed that much his father worked to build is now in ruins. The question voters need to ask is, has Mitt learned what his father seemed to know? The short answer: no.

The Hidden Agenda within the Hidden Agenda
(3 comments) As a Christian myself, I often wonder what America conservative Christians live in, and why it is so different from the America I find myself in.

Occupy Wall Street, The Next Move is Yours
(11 comments) While the Occupy movement may appear similar to protests favoring civil rights or opposing the Vietnam War, there are a few distinct differences. For one, it is an occupation, not a demonstration. Sure, people can come and go, but the movement is meant to stay. The other big difference is also its weakest point -- the Occupy movement has no clear path and no polished demands.

Newt Gingrich Offers Voters No Viable Solutions
(1 comments) With Gingrich taking the new top spot for the GOP's seemingly desperate attempt to find anyone that isn't Mitt Romney to run against President Obama, Republican voters will need to take a closer look at what this politician stands for.

2012 - Politically Doubtful
It should be no secret to Americans that President Obama has let the country down. Running on a platform of hope and change, he just happened to be in the right place at the right time. Many voters were excited just to get then President Bush out of the White House. Senator Obama may have given the voters hope, but President Obama has not shown the country any real change. In the past three years, President Obama has failed to

The Greatest Lie -- The Moral Right
Looking at the number of presidential hopefuls, America seems to be overwhelmed with a lack of choices. The "moral" right seems duty bound to find the right candidate, yet there seems to be a lack of morals among those running.

An Economic Recovery Plan that Would Actually Work
(6 comments) Where are American jobs? Politicians keep talking about them, but can we really expect to see them? Tax cuts proposed by the right, stimulus proposed by the left: neither of these will have any meaningful, positive effect on our economy. We can no longer continue the status quo.

How the Republicans have Booby Trapped Their Own Party
(1 comments) The Republicans are supposed to be the fiscally conservative ones, yet they killed that myth under Bush. Taxes were lowered while spending increased. Everything our World War II generation sacrificed for, including paying down the debt in the aftermath of the second great war, was quickly discarded. Our national debt soared, but there was still hope.

Political Realities that Must be Realized
We can have hope for real change in this country, but to do it we have to show relevance to what we are doing and stick to a strategy that works. Fixing the damage both parties have caused over the last 3 decades will not happen overnight. If the right-wingers in the nation won't work with us, the left needs to work smarter. If the left just pushes the right-wing agenda to keep the peace, there will be no peace.

A Christian Nation - or Why Glenn Beck is Wrong
(17 comments) In speaking to Christians who are against the recent health care bill, and now seemingly against the United States in general, there are a few points that can be made to help our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ better understand the Word of God.

Religion and Education – a Conundrum of Expectations
(6 comments) The Texas Board of Education is currently debating how to talk about religious influence on American history. This is an interesting predicament. How does a teacher talk about American history without bringing religion into the picture?

The Chinese Socialist Marketing System
(7 comments) China is now defeating us by using the mercantilist policies the United States used until the 1930s. They are using a results based system as their one national party looks out for the betterment of China, rather than a two party system battling for their own interests. China realizes what the U.S. used to know: industry is key to national security.

America Must Work for Change
(2 comments) Our trade deficit, or the money we lose collectively as a nation, has grown since the 1960s reaching its highest point in 2006 with a loss of $817 billion dollars. To be a superpower the U.S. should be gaining a surplus, money earned from selling American goods to foreign countries, not developing a deficit.
