End this Tyranny- May 23, 2015
Tyranny is defined in the Merriam Webster Dictionary as: cruel and unfair treatment by people with power over others; a government in which all power belongs to one person. Escaping the tyranny of a monarch was the reason America was founded. Our Declaration of Independence from another country, England, states: “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” Our forefathers fought a war to earn America’s freedom from tyranny.

A Commentary by Maureen Bader, Wyoming Liberty Group
In Governor Mead’s 2015 supplemental budget, the governor called on the legislature to set up a reserve account for an industrial park, and the legislature complied with a $5 million appropriation.

Jeb Bush Criticises Obama For Exaggerating Climate Change- May 21, 2015
U.S. Republican Jeb Bush said on Wednesday that the Earth’s climate is changing but that scientific research does not clearly show how much of the change is due to humans and how much is from natural causes.

Our crumbling infrastructure- May 18, 2015
Our highway system in the United States is dangerously neglected.
