A Very Constitutional Coup: Influenced by the No. 1 promoter of 21st-century socialism, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, our ex-president, Manuel Zelaya, took us down the road of social divide, abuse of media publicity, propaganda and the absolute void of checks and balances with one end in mind: to stay in power indefinitely.

Paying the Price for Obama Stealthcare: It seems that every time the Obama Administration releases additional information about its increasingly controversial health care plan, the consequences for the American people appear increasingly overpriced and unworkable. Recently, top political advisor to Barack Obama, David Axelrod, conceded that the administration would not rule out the potential of taxing health benefits to pay for the public option.

Zelaya had aligned himself with the communist leaders of the region and was moving the country in that direction.

And it has focused Congress' microscope even closer on the Federal Reserve and Chairman Ben Bernanke's actions in supposedly fixing the economy.
