On the Eve of 2013, Two Contrasting Views of America

December 31, 2012

While going through my routine Internet rounds this morning I needed only go to Hot Air to find two articles which so perfectly contrast the main philosophical struggle in America today. Here’s a New York Times editorial simply titled “Let’s Give Up on the Constitution.”  It is modern progressivism in its essence. This article contains [...]

Jesus Votes Republican… or Does He?

August 17, 2012

Who would Jesus vote for?  The Blaze website had a little fun with that today.  Who the heck knows?  I thought Obama was Jesus: I kid. I’m thinking Jesus would have asked each of us to be the best person we could be by following God’s law and to help others if we can.  The [...]

Still a Center-Right Nation

August 18, 2009

We can still continue to thank Ronald Reagan for his great success in turning “liberal” into a bad word in American politics.  Not only that, but Reagan’s success in promoting a conservative agenda set the basic political atmosphere we have lived under for nearly three decades. Remember how the Democrats were the Whigs after the [...]

Spend $1 Trillion, Create 1 Job… Maybe

January 22, 2009

Check this out from Republicans on the Ways and Means Committee, specifically Dave Camp: The Democrats are definitely back in charge.  Yet, perhaps some Republicans like Camp, Ryan, Pence and others, are worth saving!  Too bad we can’t do anything about the impending economic disaster right now. H/T Drudge.

Conservative Republicans Back in Opposition

November 5, 2008

Barack Obama is now the President-Elect of the United States.  For that, he deserves to be congratulated and subjected to an honest and spirited opposition.  By “spirited opposition,” I don’t mean the kind of insanity and dishonesty we saw out of the left for the last eight years.  I mean the kind of opposition that [...]

Bailout Fails — What Next?

September 29, 2008

The proposed $700 Billion Bailout failed to pass today, 207 for, 226 against.  In reaction, the DOW dropped 700+ points, before rallying again to around  a 300-point drop for the day, and is now bouncing between a 300 and 600 point drop.  As expected, the majority of conservatives opposed the bill (66 for, 132 against) but [...]

Ted Stevens Indicted

July 29, 2008

Former Senate Pro-Temp Alaska Senator Ted Stevens (R) was indicted today on seven counts of making false statements about gifts he received from an oil contractor seeking Washington’s help.  It’s evident that from 1999-2006 Stevens was making false statements about this relationship.  The issue is not bribery, however, just an 84 year old forgetting about gifts [...]

Too Soon for McCain’s Veep Pick?

July 23, 2008

Word leaked out the other day from Robert Novak, that McCain may make public his selection for his Vice Presidential candidate this week.  I believe this would be a bad idea if McCain goes through with it:  he wants to make a choice which counters Obama’s pick to ensure the strongest Republican ticket; with Obama [...]

The Republican Problem

January 22, 2008

The Republican Party over the course of my lifetime has been a source of both hope and frustration.  Hope because it represents the best chance for a return to the ideals of our Constitution, and for advancing the cause of Conservatism.  Even our moderate Presidents have helped to stem the tide of liberalism by blocking [...]

Republican Victory Strategy

October 21, 2007

In what is supposed to be bad times for Republicans, there are a few bright spots.  In Louisiana this week, Rep. Bobby Jindal (R) defeated 11 other candidates and won the Governorship with 53% of the vote.  Louisiana requires that candidates for office receive a majority in an open election;  if a majority is not [...]
