    The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I said, “O Sovereign LORD, you alone know.” Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD!

    The Band Of Patriots ^ | 3/5/12 | Alex Ritschard
    Education, like many other things in America under the current Administration, is in decline. The youth of this country must be competitive with the youth of our major global rivals. That being said, they must be equipped to do that, which means the current education system must be reformed. In a country where, economically, competition has allowed the best to thrive and the worst to disappear to make America the most prosperous nation in the world, it only makes sense that the same idea would be applied in the education sector as well. The key to success of a society...

    We as conservatives believe in freedom, liberty, and all the good stuff that the constitution guarantees us as American citizens. As we look at this election field, we catch only a glimpse of just who is attempting to run for president of the United States, our options being Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum. But have you actually looked at everyone trying to run for the coveted oval office? I didn’t, and usually don’t, until yesterday. Austin, another blogger here at BoP, posted a link to the Party for Socialism and Liberation’s website on Twitter last night. Not expecting...

    As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him; for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust. As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more. But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children (Psalm 103:13-17)

    Would you rather live in the America of 1950 or the America of 2012? Has the United States changed for the better over the last 62 years? Many fondly remember the 1950s and the 1960s as the "golden age" of America. We emerged from World War II as the wealthiest and most powerful nation on the planet. During that time period, just about anyone that wanted to get a job could find a job and the U.S. middle class expanded rapidly. Back in 1950, America was still considered to be a "land of opportunity" and the economy was growing...

    The decay of society is so much harder to quantify than economic decline is. The government keeps lots of statistics on things like unemployment and inflation, but it really does not keep track of how sick and twisted people are becoming. Most of us recognize that the character of the American people has changed dramatically over the decades, but unlike the national debt, you can't easily point to a chart or a graph to show exactly how bad things are getting. In this article, my approach will be to point you to various "signs" of social decay. Signs tell...

    CNBC ^ | 02/24/2012 | John Carney
    When conservatives worry about the size of the federal government’s budget deficits and the national debt , liberals tend to point out that “America is not Greece.” This is certainly true. The U.S. economy is far healthier than the economy of Greece. We aren’t locked into a currency union that deprives us of monetary flexibility. Our government can never run out of money to service its debt because the debt is denominated in currency the government creates. The most important difference between the U.S. and Greece, however, is not where we are in our economic cycle or our monetary system....

Forty percent identify as conservative, 36 percent as moderate, and 21 percent liberal....

    America and Eurasia will crash into each other over the north pole in 50-200 million years time, according to scientists at Yale University. They predict Africa and Australia will join the new "supercontinent" too, which will mark the next coming together of the Earth's land masses. The continents are last thought to have come together 300 million years ago into a supercontinent called Pangaea. Details are published in the journal Nature. The land masses of the Earth are constantly moving as the Earth's as tectonic activity occurs. This generates areas such as the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where Iceland has formed, and...

    With Obama ruling against the Keystone XL pipeline, he continues a direction which he has maintained from the very beginning, and will only accelerate should he win again in November. Think about some of the major actions of this administration: 1. A huge “stimulus” bill, most of which went to his supporters. If you look at where most of the money from the bill went, it went to businesses which supported his campaign, it went to businesses with union employees, it went to businesses which were ideologically aligned to his vision – during the auto bailouts, there were underreported reports...
