Republican race is just getting started

After Rick Santorum’s victories in Tuesday’s Alabama and Mississippi primaries, Mitt Romney told Fox News, “We’re not going to go to a brokered convention.” But those who put their money where their mouths are, buying contracts on the Intrade.com online prediction market, assess the picture much differently. The latest Intrade.com probability that the Republican nominee will be selected in a brokered convention is 21.5 percent. This same probability stood at 5 percent in early February.

America’s White Hat

America’s White Hat

It is correct when viewing this election in terms of America’s continuation as a free and independent country or as one that will become enslaved as is the European’s lot.  The path on which our society has traveled in the last fifty years is not accidental. Neither are the intentions from a nucleus of socialist minded Americans who sadly have attained leadership positions. America needs the guidance of a traditional leader and Rick Santorum wears that white hat proudly.

Romney Loves Telling Americans What to Do

Romney Loves Telling Americans What to Do

Mitt Romney is completely unqualified to serve as the GOP nominee to be President of the United States. In addition to his belief in the hoax of anthropogenic global warming and cap and trade taxes based on this hoax, in addition to his unreliable record on abortion, in addition to laying out the red carpet for homosexuals to counterfeit marriage in Massachusetts, there is his support for freedom-robbing government health care mandates as evidenced by his ObamaCare prototype RomneyCare. Listen to his own words.

Republicans, how do we get there from here?

Republicans, how do we get there from here?

Anybody-But-Obama has been the Republican campaign strategy so far. This is not sufficient to win the election in November. What voters need and want is a vision of the future that a Republican offers and how it would be better than four more years of Barack Obama. A return to free market capitalism and the American Dream is not specific enough to be a vision. We have now been privileged to see what a socialist looks like and have roundly rejected it. How would a conservative administration differ and how would we measure success?

Roots of Govt Health Care in South Dakota in Zaniya Project

Roots of Govt Health Care in South Dakota in Zaniya Project

My friend and fellow South Dakota patriot Tonchi Weaver was recently interviewed on Liberty Today about the government health care machinations going on in South Dakota these days. As Tonchi points out, this push for government health care mandates goes all the way back to 2007 and the Zaniya Project commissioned to study health care in South Dakota. That commission found little need or reason for government health care intervention…but some “Republicans” who support government intervention are demonstrating that they aren’t going to be deterred by things like reality, freedom and liberty.

Republican Presidential Candidates Need Reagan School of Limited Govt

Republican Presidential Candidates Need Reagan School of Limited Govt

Craig Shirley, author of “Rendezvous with Destiny,” recently expressed concern that the Republican Party has divorced itself from the principles that propelled Reagan to victory and has instead embraced big government, and Steven Hayward, a scholar with the American Enterprise Institute, said all of the current Republican Party candidates could do a better job of studying and learning from the example Reagan set.

GOP Continues to Aim for Foot With Debt Ceiling

GOP Continues to Aim for Foot With Debt Ceiling

One of the political rationales for giving the Obama Administration what it wanted on the payroll tax holiday and unemployment benefits extensions — which will add $101 billion to the debt this year alone and is not paid for — was to avoid another showdown in Washington, D.C. Ironically, in the process, House Republicans may have guaranteed that another controversial issue comes up before the election — the $16.394 trillion debt ceiling.

Voting for Faith, Reason, and Heart

Voting for Faith, Reason, and Heart

I see a continuation of the GOP primary battle overall as a good process. This may all come down to a brokered convention with many ballots. We could even see a surprise … like a Draft Palin movement. However it turns out, it will be an opportunity to roar out of that convention with a full head of steam and a solid platform. Look out Obama! Most importantly, I am setting aside my desires and wants here and I am trusting in God. If God is with us, after all, who can be against us. I believe in miracles.

Why Republican Politicians Sell Us Out

Why Republican Politicians Sell Us Out

It is a cliché to speak of “spineless Republicans”-google spineless republicans and you will see. They talk “conservative” when they campaign; but once in office, they go along with the progressive agenda. That agenda is to grow the federal government until it controls every aspect of our lives.Why don’t they oppose the progressive agenda?

Pretender ‘Republicans’ Toss Real Republican From Caucus

Pretender ‘Republicans’ Toss Real Republican From Caucus

One of the relatively few Republicans in the South Dakota Legislature who bothers to consistently act like a Republican (Rep. Stace Nelson) was kicked out of the Republican caucus by a bunch of liberal RINOs who like calling themselves “Repbulicans” while voting and behaving like Democrats. If these liberal RINOs want a war with real Republicans, by golly they’ve earned themselves one.
