Why Minimum Wage Raises are Just an Illusion

by T Akery October 28th, 2014 Republican Reflections
The fight over the minimum wage has taken to the streets. But few are aware of the consequences that a change in the minimum wage would bring. The problem is two-fold. One is the Government's inability to keep up with changes in legislation. The second is the economic effects that would naturally occur from an increase in labor costs. All that is seen isRepublican-Reflections more money in the pockets for a job skill set that is increasingly becoming irrelevant in light of new technological advances.

One of the fallacies being pushed by the higher minimum wage argument is that families

The Good Fight

by Eric M. Blake October 27th, 2014 Conservative Considerations
Conservative-Considerations Dear readers, it pains me to write this — as we kick off the final week for Camp Campaign. Parting is such sweet sorrow, as Shakespeare said. And so, as we all go our separate ways … a few final thoughts — some things to leave you with.

I remember when my colleague Ronald Rowe invited me to try out for this site … way back when it was just him and another writer giving their respective $0.02. I remember just over three years ago, when my column first began (back before it was given the name "Conservative Considerations").

Unsolicited Advice

by Ronald A. Rowe October 23rd, 2014 Winners & Losers
Winners-Losers To the Left: Lighten up!  Liberals are the biggest bunch of sad sacks I have ever seen in my life.  The Left scores win after win but never stops to celebrate any of it.  Abortion is more widely available and easily accessible than ever before.  Legalized drugs are a reality in Colorado and either on the ballot or in the pipeline in many more states.  Gay marriage is rapidly gaining acceptance in the mainstream.  Nationalized healthcare is the law of the land.  Democrats control 2/3 of the government.  Liberals

Independent Ideas: The Last Straw

by Jason Lightner October 24th, 2014 Independent Ideas
Independent-Ideas There's been a lot in the news this past week, and even these past few days. Always turning, this world's  constantly abuzz with something of interest to someone — some new threat to worry about, or some new cause to champion. Camp Campaign has been my soapbox for the past four years and, while writing about politics isn't always the most pleasant of jobs, I've always taken great pride in knowing that, in some small way, my voice is getting people to think about the status quo. That's where progress begins, after all.

Small Government and Ebola

by Jessica B. October 21st, 2014 Democratic Deliberations
Democratic-Deliberations Everyone is a bit on edge as Ebola reached Texas last month and has now shown to spread even within the "strong, capitalistic, best in the world medical system" that Texas has to offer. But there is much to learn from this experience, and I’m afraid that the only lesson that most will learn is to start prepping and invest in a hazsuit.

The CDC messed up. The CDC made some HUGE errors. As it turns out, cutting spending, saving money and not increasing funding to an organization that is supposed to keep an eye on national health can have
