In a Perfect World, We’d All Have Free Healthcare

by Providence Crowder

What is Healthcare?

We Americans demand comprehensive AND low-cost healthcare services to aid us in regaining and maintaining good health when our lifestyles or other factors cause our health to fail us.  Our liberty to make bad choices concerning our health has been costly.  Obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and other ailments are symptomatic of a free nation that is enslaved to its deadly habits (smoking, drinking, promiscuity, overeating, etc.).  And though everyone wants healthcare, is healthcare our “right” to have?

Healthcare has been defined as the diagnosis, treatment, preservation and prevention of disease, illness, injury, and other physical and mental impairments in humans through services offered by the health profession (www.thefreedictionary.com).  In other words, healthcare is a good and/or a service provided to a person by a healthcare professional.  These goods and services cost something to someone; they can be donated for no fee—charity, or for rendered for a fee—commerce.   (more…)

NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Gun Control

by Providence Crowder

When asked about the recent Colorado mass shootings at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado that killed at least 12 people, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg—in a disgusting and shameful political ploy—used this tragedy to push his gun control agenda.

Mr. Bloomberg demanded to know from our presidential candidates, “What are you going to do about guns?”  On the back of this tragedy, it says a lot about Mr. Bloomberg, that he would use this ocassion for political grandstanding.  Whether for gun control or not, we can all argue our points, but is this really the time?

Elect Judge Gail Donofrio for Supreme Court 7th Judicial District of New York

A Message from Judge Donofrio:

I am honored to be running for Supreme Court Justice and I believe that I bring unique experiences and a distinguished judicial career that has prepared me for this important position.

I have been a lawyer for 26 years and a full-time Judge for 14 years. I am an Acting Supreme Court Justice and Supervising Judge for the Family Courts for the Seventh Judicial District. Over these many years, I have presided over thousands of cases and have earned the reputation of being a fair and thoughtful Judge. I am honored to have been rated as “Highly Qualified” for Supreme Court by the Monroe County Bar Association.

Prior to my tenure as a Judge, my background as an attorney in private practice included civil litigation in State and Federal Courts. I worked on cases in the areas of negligence, severe brain injuries, medical malpractice, products liability, contract disputes and construction litigation.

My extensive experience as a Judge in many different courts, along with so many counties across the district makes me uniquely and eminently qualified to serve as a Supreme Court Judge in the Seventh Judicial District.

In all the cases I decide or preside over, I am guided by my duty under the Constitutions of the United States and New York to follow the law and apply it evenly and without favoritism or partisanship.

With your assistance, I hope to continue serving our community by seeking the office of Supreme Court Justice and, therefore, I ask for your support and your vote this November.

Thank you,
Judge Gail Donofrio

Romney Raises $106 Million in June, Showing He Will Dominate Obama in November

by Jesse Merkel

Mitt Romney and the RNC have outraised President Obama for the second month in a row. This morning, the tallies from both camps came in, showing that the GOP hopeful has raised an astonishing $106 million.

President Obama and the DNC on the other hand raised $71 million. If this trend keeps up, it will be increasingly difficult for Obama to keep up not only with the oncoming advertising blitz, but with the image that the American public is increasingly dissastisified with him. (more…)

“WE THE PEOPLE” of God vs. the Obamanation, Part II

by Providence Crowder

Exposing ObamaCare

Obama has promised millions of Americans “free” or “affordable” healthcare.  And working toward this goal, Obama signed into law the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare on March 22, 2011.  Healthcare has been defined as the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease, illness, injury and other physical and mental impairments in humans.  What American wouldn’t want free healthcare?


“WE THE PEOPLE” of God vs. the Obamanation, Part I

by Providence Crowder

I love God, and I love my country.  And as a Christian, I am unapologetic of my faith in God and I am unashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.  Our great nation, America, flourished under the principle of religious liberty—our founders understood that individual rights come from God, not government.

Patrick Henry, the American Patriot, congressman, and governor who coined the famous phrase, “Give me liberty or give me death” also said “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.”

But, at this time in America history, we see this concept of Religious freedom eroding day by day.  There has definitely been an attack on religious liberty and traditional American values. (more…)
