    Our Governor, Guns & the Legislature

    "Look, sir, if you're anti-gun, if you are anti-Second Amendment, then why don't you just face up to the people and admit it, instead of asking your legislators to do your dirty work for you?" by OurVoicesAR

    Trump’s “Lies” & “Veterans’ Tax Cuts”

    The left-leaning mainstream media is all caught up in reporting President Trump’s “lies.” Some pundits point out that an unproven remark is quite different than intentionally misleading with the goal of obscuring the truth. Politicos understand that each side will paint any situation with words that give a rosy glow while glossing over (as best... by OurVoicesAR

    Why Vote Democrat?

    submitted by an anonymous reader Why would I wish to vote Democrat? The easy answer is I wouldn’t, but the “why” is important. The Democrat party is mostly liberal, although there are a few who are not. There are Liberal Republicans as well, so maybe the question should be “Why would I vote Liberal?” The... by OurVoicesAR

    Will GOP Ever Learn?

    Thanks to known and demonstrable collusion between Progressives and the so-called free press, we can’t count on many reporters to impartially report much of anything these days. We know it is inevitable that Progressives would launch a full-court-press gun control offensive after the Orlando terrorist murders of innocent Americans. But, will the GOP ever learn... by OurVoicesAR

    Why Rep. Charlie Collins Backs Arkansas Works/AsaCare

        We certainly know by now that state Rep. Charlie Collins is a full-on supporter of Governor Asa Hutchinson’s Arkansas Works/Private Option/AsaCare Medicaid expansion plan. But did you know exactly why he is so enthusiastic? Well, let’s hear it straight from him, in his own words: by OurVoicesAR

    AsaWorks: Tyranny of the Minority, or ?

    During this public comment period on Governor Asa Hutchinson’s Arkansas Works/Private Option/AsaWorks Medicaid expansion plan, it is good to reflect on the bill and its passage back in April. Specifically, coming out of Garland County, participants at the Greater Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce’s “One Voice Summit” voiced these conclusions about AsaWorks — but then... by OurVoicesAR

    “If I Don’t Agree, You Don’t Get an Opinion!”

    “If I don’t agree, then you don’t even have a right to express your opinion!” Progressives are more and more willing to draw this bottom line in ever-expanding, increasingly flagrant attacks on our country’s First Amendment free speech rights. From vocal opponents at Presidential primary political rallies to college campuses to Facebook, the very existence... by OurVoicesAR

    The Governor Has Spoken:
    “Arkansas 10” Off the Island

    How is Governor Asa Hutchinson’s Republican majority in Arkansas like a reality show? They both feature folks who’ll do anything to anybody to win. The more unethical and ugly the tactics and behaviors, the more the so-called winners are rewarded to move along to the big finale. Players take one adamant position and then another,... by OurVoicesAR

    Who Ya Gonna Trust, the Arkansas GOP?

    Shame on Arkansas’s GOP Governor and pro-Obamacare lawmakers, who are abandoning good governance, as well as the values of their own political party, when they circumvent the Arkansas Constitution to have their way on the Governor’s unethical Medicaid Expansion ploy. Good public policy first depends on trust between lawmakers and their constituents. If ever there... by OurVoicesAR

    Governor Hutchinson’s Clever Plan Falls

    Governor Hutchinson and pro-Obamacare Medicaid Expansion lawmakers had a clever plan to circumvent the 75% bar for appropriations to get Arkansas Works passed — but that shell game fell yesterday to a bipartisan vote driven by Democrats on the Joint Budget Committee. Conservative activists were left shaking their heads when Republican proponents of continued Medicaid... by OurVoicesAR

    Democrat Lawmakers Play Hardball in Fiscal Session

    Democrats in the Arkansas Legislature played hardball during yesterday’s first day of the fiscal session, blocking a key House vote as well as the Governor’s plan to pass his Medicaid Expansion bill in the Joint Budget Committee. The House Democrat Caucus had written Speaker Jeremy Gillam on Wednesday to request that the House not address... by OurVoicesAR

    ARGOP’s Foster Care Cuts: More Scare Tactics

    We’ve come to expect the usual draconian budget responses from politicos when they’re not getting their way about spending more money, but the GOP’s latest tactic in the state’s Medicaid expansion fight is a doozy. Yesterday, Arkansans woke up to news stories screaming “Schools, prisons, and foster care to take hit” if the Governor’s planned... by OurVoicesAR

    Angry Voters: Whose Fault Is It?

    Today’s news reports are full of stories about how angry Trump supporters are. They’re just the tip, the visible ones of a tidal wave that’s driving the 2016 election cycle at both the national and state levels. It’s easy to look back a few years to see why conservative voters are beyond exasperated with the... by OurVoicesAR
