GOP: Don’t Have “Bush-Syndrome” & Actually Learn a Lesson
Below are some various trends and stats that I have compiled from the 2008 Presidential election. Surprisingly, the Catholic shift. Not surprising, the immigration shift. Talk about messaging. Seriously, just take Latino immigrants. Catholic, family-centric, hard-working, familiar with small businesses, and until we piss them off, most likely to be Center-Right. What happens when we do make them mad by, oh, I don’t know, coming | Read More »
As you know, this election decides many things: Do unions become puppet masters of Congress and the White House? Will our taxes go up? What about my 401(k) stability? Healthcare? Immigration? And more… Well, ATR has put together some educational voter guides on energy, taxes and labor. Enjoy!

Obama’s Tax Gap is Over $250K…Pay Up!
Guess what…If Barack Obama’s tax hike had been in place since 2001, he would have paid over $250,000 more in income taxes than he actually did.

Sen. Joe Biden; otherwise known as the gift that keeps on giving, has done it again. Thanks Joe! You know those microphone’s that the NFL use to “Mic Up” quarterbacks and other players…we should always have one of those on Biden. Man, that guy would win the election for us. Anyway, I digress. According to ABC News (and I kid you not), Biden said recently | Read More »
