Are we at last brought to such an humiliating and debasing degradation that we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defense? — Patrick Henry

‘Houston, we’ve had a problem’

William J. Federer

"Houston, we've had a problem" were the words sent from Apollo 13, which was launched for the moon APRIL 11, 1970. Mission control identified that an oxygen tank had exploded, irreparably damaging the craft. Special prayer services were held at the Chicago Board of Trade, at St. Peter’s Basilica by the Pope, at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem and reported in The New York Times. In April of 1970, President Richard Nixon had the nation observe a Day of Prayer for Apollo 13 astronauts. Even the U.S. Senate adopted a resolution urging prayer.

Choose: A Real Conservative or Big Government Cronyism

Bob Ellis

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.

Campbell and DiSanto: Second Amendment Supporters

Bob Ellis

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.

Good reason for Mary Landrieu to be concerned

Star Parker

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.

Turning the Tables on the Left

Bob Ellis

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
