Republicans – Show Us the Way

David Coughlin

I am already getting a sinking feeling about the 2014/2016 elections as Republicans haggle over who and what they stand for. If Republicans can’t define themselves as the Party of Growth and Prosperity to contrast to Obama’s disastrous record and to offer a rescue back to Constitutional sanity, Republicans will again stay home and the elections are already lost! The key void that Republicans must fill is to create a positive marketing narrative that will carry the party through the next elections.

Declare Victory in the War on Inequality

David Coughlin

There is no doubt that our great nation’s formation reflected the cultural norms of the late eighteenth century with its sexual and race based biases. These cultural inequities were addressed after years of debate, a bloody civil war, and the passage of a number of Constitutional Amendments. Regulations were implemented to enforce these laws and affirmative action was created as a temporary measure to accelerate the change. But the question now is how long is “temporary” and when will the need for affirmative action ever end? Now fifty years later, maybe it’s about time to declare victory in this War on Inequality.

Voters need some skin in the game

David Coughlin

Thomas Jefferson said “Freedom is lost gradually from an uninterested, uninformed, and uninvolved people.” Voting is considered optional and requires a conscious effort to register and actually vote in a given election. Meanwhile, voters are many times apathetic and misinformed on the issues and vote accordingly. When half of the voters cast their ballots in hope of electing someone who will give them more goodies from the treasury, this country may have entered a death spiral. How can we break out of that?

It will take a burning platform before people will change

David Coughlin

Republicans must begin now to educate the low information voters on the better alternative of freedom and prosperity. There is no doubt that economic collapse is coming, so no doubt that America will face a burning platform of its own and a choice whether to continue the transformation to socialism or begin the painful journey to dismantle the socialist damage done over the last 100 years.

Republicans Must Embrace Big, Bold Ideas that Reflect Conservative Principles

David Coughlin

Republicans and conservatives in particular, base their beliefs on the strict interpretation of the Constitution with limited government, free market capitalism and a strong defense. Unfortunately the policies and legislation created by the GOP does not align with the originalist rhetoric. Republicans have found out that it is easier to “talk the talk” than actually “walk the walk.” Consequently Republicans have been accused of becoming Democrat-lite with one-off proposals. If conservatives want to differentiate themselves from liberals, then they must create big, bold ideas for change that align clearly with the underlying conservative principles.

Republicans Need to Change the Way They Think

David Coughlin

Republicans suffer from many problems, as their most recent election “autopsy” reported, but the biggest problem is they let the Democrats define them in the public’s mind. First, Republicans must rebrand themselves as the party of growth and prosperity. Second, they must learn to treat Americans as a continuum of people progressing in their quest to achieve the American Dream. Third, Republicans must define themselves as the party of the middle class, as they serve the changing wants and needs of all American as they strive for success and prosperity. There must be a clear vision and strategy.

Respect the Office, Not Necessarily the Man

David Coughlin

The President of the United States is elected as America’s leader and represents the nation to other countries abroad. The specific roles and responsibilities of the President are clearly laid out in Article II of the U.S. Constitution. The office of President has a great deal of legitimate power and associated respect. Respect is a deference to a right, privilege, privileged position, or someone or something considered to have certain rights or privileges; proper acceptance or courtesy. The incumbent can be judged separately and critically based on their individual performance against the expectations of the office.

Change the Narrative if Republicans Ever Want to Win an Election Again

David Coughlin

Republicans have lost their way in the political arena, out-marketed by Democrats who better understand what sells to the American voter. Conservatives must wrest control of the Republican Party if they want to win any future election. Republicans also can no longer afford to allow leftists to set the media narrative based on distorted stereotypes and gross distortions. There are a number of things that must begin now for Republicans to return as a viable national party.

Election Fraud: Democrats Stole the Election

David Coughlin

The electoral fraud evidence is accumulating to the point where I must conclude that the November election was stolen by the Democrats. In the months leading up to the election, report after report surfaced highlighting significant erosion of support for President Obama. Electoral fraud can occur at any stage in the process, but there are three main types.

It’s not too early for conservatives…

David Coughlin

The Republican Party lost the 2012 election while the conservatives watched from the sidelines. Republican moderates losing elections has become an all too common occurrence even though conservatives are the base of the Republican Party. It is not too early for the conservatives to start work to take back the Party and the country. The Republican establishment elite do not learn from its mistakes.

Alice in Wonderland in Nevada

Michael Peroutka

“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in a rather scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less.” “The question is,” said Alice (remember Alice in Wonderland), “whether you can make words mean different things.” “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “who is to be master – that is all.” Perhaps Alice can give us some insight into what the government is doing right now in Bunkerville, Nevada.

Trying To Win The Debate…By Pretending There Isn’t One

David Mann

Whenever someone tries to sell an idea as being “settled science,” or as being completely agreed upon and noncontroversial among all “experts,” “reputable researchers,” “intelligent people,” etc., that’s a big, red, flashing light telling you that you need to question it -- and question it carefully. Legitimate claims don't need to hide behind that kind of hype.

Palm Sunday and the Den of Thieves

David Whitney

Palm Sunday is a glorious Sunday, when we recall that triumphal entry of Jesus into the city of Jerusalem. At that momentous point, the people recognize that Jesus is the Messiah, the King that was long promised in the writings of the prophets. As I was studying Luke’s account of Palm Sunday this week it struck me just how different that day was for Jesus in contrast with the crowd rejoicing about Him.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
