Another Look At Civil Unions
The recent ruling of a judge in Massachusetts will most likely bring the issue of marriage to the forefront and I want to get my two cents in. I will not lie to you, I am not a social conservative. I’m more libertarian/moderate in my views. Unless you are hurting someone, then the government’s role stops at your front door. However I can also understand | Read More »

The Shark Tank (a blog that focuses on Florida Politics) got an exclusive interview with Bill McCollum (video after the jump):
One Central Florida County, Three Great Congressional Candidates
Last night, I went to an amazing event. The Leesburg 912 Group held a Candidate Forum for the three US Congressional Districts that cross Lake County, Florida. There I meet up with three great candidates running for congress: Patricia Sullivan (CAN-R-FL-08) who is trying for the honor of outing Alan Grayson (INC-D-FL-08).

Why Supporting Jason Sager (CAN-R-FL-05) Is Important
The biggest races to capture the national imagination from Florida, is the the governor race between Rick Scott and Bill McCollum (in which I am still undecided), the Senate Race featuring Marco Rubio, and the FL-08 race to out Alan Grayson. While they are all indeed important, the most under-reported race happening in Florida is the FL-05 primary race between Jason Sager and Richard Nugent.

I’m not going to surgar coat it: General Stanley McChrystal should be fired. Not allowed to resigned, fired in the strongest possible terms. If we were talking about Bush and Iraq, we be calling for his head. For better or worse, Barack Obama is the Commander-in-Chief and our military shouldn’t be disrespecting our elected leaders in such a way. The military answers to the civilian | Read More »
