Bob Beckel, Useful Idiot.
Bob Beckel is an idiot. I heard Bob Beck on Fox just a few minutes ago (YouTube embed when available), he says that Republicans got their chance and couldn’t govern and that they cause the economic crisis. Further he says that we must give President Obama a chance, since he has only been President for a month. Well, I call B.S. on this and I | Read More »
Socialism is like Crack…By the time you realize you are a crackhead…it’s too late.
(Crack Dealer) So I am a crack dealer, and I like you. In fact go ahead and have this rock..for free, really it’s on me. I know you are thinking that this crap could kill you, but it wouldn’t make much sense to have you die. You are a valued customer, so trust me, I would never give you more crack than you could handle. | Read More »
My bipartisan Economic Plan.
I propose a 60% / 40% split between tax cuts and infrastructure projects repsectively. The 40% that would go to infrastructure we would require language insuring fastrack approval of all valid projects, which would go to a private contractor within any given state. The contractor who receives the contract will be chosen by the States Legislature with consent of the Governor. The State will | Read More »
He’s what you might call…a strategerist…and a fine one at that
A good subtitle would be “In Which I gush about House Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA)“. I read a nice tidbit about Rep. Cantor that I got via The New Ledger h/t Erick Erickson. The Ambinder article is about Rep. Cantor’s counter to the DCCC’s assualt on, private citizen, Rush Limbaugh. Rep. Cantor is calling the President’s and his party’s bluff. The people voted for | Read More »
My contributions to a New CWA
In a 22 months the midterm elections will be upon us. The way I see it this gives us 18 months to walk the walk before 6 months of intense campaigning begins. I think we should start floating ideas via our leaders in Congress. Each idea will invariably fail becuase we simply don’t have the numbers to get them past…but that doesn’t matter right now, | Read More »
Character matters, therefore inaccurate claims about ones character should be corrected.
Recently Mbecker wrote an excellent diary thanking President Bush for the Man that he is. One of the points was President Bush’s character displayed by his continued meetings with the families of those who gave their life in defense of freedom. Unfortunately, one of the comments stirred some commotion down in the thread which resulted in a banning. I am not writting this to in | Read More »
Wow.. One year went quick…Happy B-Day to me.
Well, it is my first RedState birthday, and as it seems to be sort of a tradition ’round these parts, I decided to write a diary to celebrate. I came to RedState near the end of the primary flame wars, it was all but decided that McCain would be the nominee and any hope for a TrueConsevative™ entering the White House were pretty low. Despite | Read More »
The Case for Revolution…non violent of course.
I honestly don’t know where to begin with this diary…so I suppose I will just begin at the beginning. Some 200 plus years ago our forefathers took it upon themselves to set about to create a new nation. A nation of free men. A nation that governed from the bottom up rather than a nation that ruled from the top down. Upon declaring | Read More »
Ben and Jerry’s has created, well re-named, an Ice Cream in Obama’s Honor
Yes Pecan. The profits from the sale of this new flavor will, of course, go to a “nonpartisan” group as briefly noted in the linked article: The proceeds for the ice cream will go to Common Cause, liberally leaning and described as “a nonpartisan, nonprofit advocacy organization founded as a vehicle for citizens to make their voices heard in the political process.” Now this is | Read More »
The RNC Chairman’s Candidate Debate
Ok RedStaters, mark your calendars for Jan 5th 2009 at 1 PM Est. Americans for Tax Reform will be hosting The RNC Chairman’s Candidate Debate live. They will also be taking questions, which you can submit on the day of the debate. There will also be a twitterfeed for the debate so those on twitter can follow (sorry don’t have a link for that | Read More »
The Barack Obama Day…celebration of a neophite
From Brietbart via Drudge Apparently the Perry County Commission decided they needed a paid day of in order to celebrate Barack Obama’s presidential win. Granted, electing a black man is historic but he hasn’t even governed anything yet, not to mention succeeded at governing. The employees of the county will get a day off and the taxpayers of the county won’t. Well I guess all | Read More »
Enough on Obama’s admin picks….Who will replace Alan Colmes…
H/T to Drudge Breitbart is reporting that Colmes is leaving Hannity and Colmes. This begs the question…who will replace Colmes?
Promoted from the diaries by Erick Lately there seems to be a lot of confusion as to what a Conservative is and is not. Some seem to think it has to do with abortion or taxes or national security. Well the truth is that conservatism is not about any given issue, rather conservatism is about principles. Before we go any further I believe it would | Read More »
And Now for Something Completely Different
I know this has nothing to do with politics and feel free to remove it if I am abusing my RedHot privileges, but this looks great!!
The GOP is trying to listen…will you make your voice heard?
Today I recieved an email from RNC Chairman Mike Duncan encouraging me to reflect on why I am a Republican and to share my input. In order to do so they have put up a site called Republican for a Reason. I encourage all of us to participate on this site. The site allows you to post 2000 character text posts on a variety of | Read More »
Washington’s birthday..not worthy…Barack Obama..sure why not???
H/T to Drudge for this link. Apparently some are planning to promote a National holiday for Barack Obama. This is absolutely ridiculous. In my life span we have demoted Pres. Washington and Pres. Lincoln to being lumped in with all the other Presidents while promoting Martin Luther King above all others who fought for civil rights for all people, not just African Americans. Now, before | Read More »
The point I was making was that the Journalists were attacked for trying to expose this. They were trying to be helpful and were met with violence. This should not be since The One was elected…we’re all supposed to be friends now. After further review, I probably should have let this one go in the trash heap.
Apparently China didn’t get the memo…Barack Obama won…you shouldn’t be worried!!
60 Minutes Reporters Attacked in China Shouldn’t China now understand that we only have their best intentions in mind? After all didn’t HOPECHANGEHOPE win on Tuesday Night?
Back to The Future.
In the aftermath of the utter failure of the McCain campaign, and the Republicans in general, to come with and understandable and comprehensive plan of how we will govern, I decided to look back on to the giants whose shoulders we should be standing. I will warn you right now that this is a very long diary and it is unequivocally conservative. It is my | Read More »
How Economic Policy affects the goal of Self Governance
Cross posted at TMR here. Recently I wrote about Self Governance and the Moral Standard. Today I would like to continue in the theme of Self Governance and how Economic Policy can either move our Nation toward or away from that goal. First I need to define some terms for the purpose of this discussion. In my view there are only three basic views on | Read More »
