When it comes to the priorities of the federal government, the stock market, interestingly, has a great deal of sway.
Perhaps this observation is not so interesting; after all, it is the businesses at the top of the stock market that basically finance the campaigns of the lawmakers.

Queen Elizabeth is still the official Head of State of Economic Affairs for all properties of Great Britain, meaning that she is still the Queen and the unapproachable sovereign in over 100 countries still controlled by the British Empire. The United Nations has a significant amount of input in these British Empire properties and NATO is largely the international (more…)

Some people might think that the government is beneficial for everyone in the country. However, if you get the opinion of a female, you might get a different answer. The constitution of our country has stated that everyone should be treated equally. Are women being treated equally? Is social media telling everyone to let women sit on the sidelines while everyone else is doing all of the work? For many women, this is reality.
Women under today’s constitution are being told where to work, how to spend time with their family and simply how to (more…)

Remember when politics was about the facts and the decisions that were made. Remember when the sensational twist was frowned on and politicians went to great lengths to keep the focus on the issues. Once upon a time and a long time ago when politics and sex made a bad combination. Remember when a dirt digging journalist was scorned for concentrating on non political events. Today it seems votes are won with drama and deception. (more…)

Our founding fathers envisioned a country where the traditional roles of government were reversed. The monarchy dictatorship societies that have prevailed throughout human history have been proven to fail time after time.

America’s founding fathers fled from the English monarchy for the purpose of religious freedom. Years later, after the American Revolution, they founded this country upon the basis of rights, freedom, (more…)
