I received a nice big color slick mailer today from Many True Conservatives which points out the differences between conservative independent U.S. Senate Candidate Gordon Howie and RINO "Republican" Candidate Mike Rounds. Though some Republicans would rather Howie wasn't in this race (to embarrass RINO Rounds), the differences are real, and they are big.
South Dakota Gun Owners and the National Association for Gun Rights takes a lot of flack from liberal "Republicans" for hitting RINOs over the head with their own weak records on Second Amendment rights. Unlike the National Rifle Association (NRA) which usually endorses whoever is the incumbent or favored candidate in a race, even if they're a liberal Democrat, SDGO and NAGR don't suck up to the halls of power.
Prospects that three term Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu will return to the US Senate to represent Louisiana for a fourth term are looking increasingly bleak. Senator Landrieu has good reason to be concerned. One reason is disenchantment among Louisiana’s black population, which amounts to 32 percent of the population of the state – the nation’s second largest black population percentage-wise.
Picture this: You’re going to be meeting with George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin. They wants to know what has happened to America. What will you say?
It seems Leon H. Wolf at RedState is about as enthused at the prospects of a "Republican" victory in November as I am. Republicans: would you like to actually accomplish something next year? Would you like to be able to overcome Barack Obama's propaganda? You can, if you are willing to fight.
"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
