In Kansas, a candidate who unites Club for Growth, Mike Huckabee, and Ron Paul. Brownback campaign manager donates to opponent.
Ron Paul has endorsed State Senator Tim Huelskamp in Kansas’ First Congressional District. I do not recall another Ron Paul endorsement in our state, off the top of my head. While I have not seen any primary polls, I consider it reasonable to call Huelskamp the front-runner, based on fundraising and other factors. Though, Huelskamp is running with very little support from establishment Republicans. Huelskamp’s | Read More »
Yes, there is waste in K-12 education, and there must be cuts made: My testimony against Kansas Governor Parkinson’s proposed 18% sales tax increase
Yes, there must be cuts made to government-run K-12 education in Kansas. No, cuts will not lay off good teachers. No, cuts will not damage the quality of education.

Should conservatives and/or Republicans see to it that the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program remains alive, through private donations? Erick Erickson wrote about this idea in April 2009, but it seems that very little discussion regarding the topic has since occurred, anywhere. I would like to write about it now, in order to encourage a more serious consideration of the matter. According to The Wall Street Journal in | Read More »

Comprehensive Ethics Reform? Democrat Gov. Jay Nixon Attempts to Remove First Amendment Rights. If Missouri Governor and Democrat Jay Nixon were serious about reducing corruption within government, he would propose, at minimum, the following four plans: Change the Missouri Constitution, so that state judges would be selected using the “federal model,” whereby the governor appoints, and the state senate confirms judicial selections.

If K-12 vouchers were allowed in inner cities, 35% of black men under age 25 would not be unemployed
Yes, it’s that simple. If school vouchers were today provided to inner-city families, their likelihood for future economic prosperity would exponentially increase tomorrow. Today’s Washington Post: The jobless rate for young black men and women is 30.5 percent. For young blacks — who experts say are more likely to grow up in impoverished racially isolated neighborhoods, attend subpar public schools and experience discrimination — race statistically | Read More »
