A Bold Proposal for Conservative GOP Candidates

These last few GOP horse races have been jam-packed with would-be conservative presidents who, after infighting with largely simpatico opponents, have canceled each other out, limped off to lick their wounds and left the perpetually underwhelmed GOP base to stay home and not vote for “imminently electable” establishment paragons like Presidents Dole, McCain and Romney. Divide and conquer. That’s how the “moderate” RINO establishment plays the primary. And then they lose the general.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY)

Merging Paul’s Outreach with Cruz’s Principles

Ted Cruz has a bit of an image problem while Rand Paul has a bit of a message problem. Cruz is more consistent but obviously more maligned. Both men are highly intelligent. Cruz is traditionalist while Paul thinks outside the box. Both men hold our rule of law in very high regard but at the end of the day each possesses a bit of what the other lacks.

Cruz: First Top-Tier Movement Conservative Candidate Since Reagan

Ted Cruz is the first top-tier movement conservative candidate since Reagan for three reasons that separate him immediately from the rest of the Republican pack. First, is his ability to unite all three elements of the old Reagan coalition.

Cruz Announcement at LU: A Reaganesque Offering to a Crippled Nation

With no notes or prompter Cruz dashed across the platform, fully animated, impeccably articulated and left nothing out of his announcement. He touched on every area of foreign and domestic policy and did not flinch when it came to the so called “hot button” social issues like marriage and abortion.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX)

An Open Letter Exposing Ted Cruz

I’m sorry to say this, but the finger points directly at you. You are wholly deserving of the blame. This is all YOUR fault! I was ready to turn the page. I was fully convinced that our elected officials fit into only one of three categories: Crook, Coward, or Commie.

Election 2016:  A Jest of Hillary or Simply a Media Jest

Election 2016: A Jest of Hillary or Simply a Media Jest

Personally, I hate the campaign season and all the lies one is forced to endure as it goes on and on and on and on. Oh, excuse me. I’ve forgotten my politically correct Orwellian manners. “I hate all the mis-speaks and mis-spokens by the people who seem to have trouble articulating the truth.” Hillary? I wonder if she has been ducking anymore sniper fire as she scurries about trying to flee the email scandal?

After Iowa, N.H., and S.C., Who Cares?

Since the advent of the Iowa caucuses in 1972 and the South Carolina primary in 1980, the “first in the nation” political contests, including the New Hampshire primary which dates back to 1916, have had an uncanny knack of declaring who the nominee for President will eventually be, particularly on the Republican side of the aisle.

Conservatives: Don’t Leave GOP, Take it Over

Conservatives: Don’t Leave GOP, Take it Over

There’s been considerable discussion of Glenn Beck’s decision to leave the Republican Party. Over the past six years or so, a lot of us conservatives have thought about that a time or six (or six thousand). After all, why would conservatives want to stick around in a party that only mouths conservative values, and then betrays those same values when it comes time for action?

GOP ‘Leadership’ Can’t Wait to Go Spread-Eagle

What just might be the saddest part of seeing how shamelessly the GOP “leadership” has sold out since winning a historic election four months ago is that I knew even before Election Day that it would turn out this way, and…
