Herman Cain at CPAC 2012: pledges to use his new web site to encourage conservatives to become PCs!
LadyImpactOhio was fortunate to snag Herman Cain on his bus at CPAC 2012 for a just over six minute video interview on the following four topics, including one I particularly liked: Advice he could offer the remaining candidates regarding what to expect from, and how to handle, the Obama Media. Mr. Cain’s opinions as to which issues are the most critical we face as a | Read More »
Does the “Republican Establishment” exist, and do you want to become a member of part of it?
Cross-posted at UnifiedPatriots.com Many words have been typed lately about whether the “Republican Establishment” (“RE”) has been cramming a particular candidate down the throats of the “conservative base” of “the Republican Party.” Some have made the obvious, good point that the RE cannot cast the votes that result in, for example, Mitt Romney winning the Republican primaries and caucuses. Rather, obviously, the voters who bother | Read More »
It’s not hard to get involved in party politics, it matters, and it’s fun
Cross-posted at UnifiedPatriots.com Here in Arizona, it’s easy to become a “voting member” of the Republican Party — a precinct committeeman. If you don’t know that the office of precinct committeeman is the “most powerful political office in the world,” go here: www.theprecinctproject.wordpress.com. Saturday, January 28, 2012, I was at the Arizona Republican Party annual meeting of its state committeemen. I’m an elected precinct committeeman | Read More »
There are Republicans and then there are Republican Party members — What ’bout You?
Are you a Republican Party member? No, I’m not asking if you are a registered Republican in your state. I’m asking if you are a voting member of the Republican Party. That is, are you eligible to vote for your local Republican Party committee officers? Are you eligible to vote for your county Republican Party officers? Are you eligible to vote for the delegates or | Read More »
T.E.A 2.0: MI U.S. Senate Candidate Turning “Taxed Enough Already” into “Take Effective Action”
One Michigan conservative Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, Peter Konetchy, has a strategy for both garnering real support for his campaign and for changing the MI Republican Party. And, he has made this strategy an open part of his campaign. Here’s an excerpt from his campaign web site (bolding added): I travel the State on a regular basis and encounter much frustration regarding the | Read More »
The VA Redstate Perry Contingent: Were you there for him? Keyboards vs. Pens, Papers & Clipboards
Over the last few days many here at Redstate have written much about the Rick Perry campaign’s failure to achieve the necessary number of nomination form signatures to gain a spot on the Virginia Republican Party primary ballot. I wonder how many of the Redstate contributors who reside in Virginia either signed a nominating petition on behalf of Rick Perry or gathered signatures for him | Read More »
A glimpse into Party politics. And, will you be voting for your national convention delegates?
Well, Redstaters, with all the talk of the possibility of a brokered Republican Party presidential nomination convention, which of you plan to become a delegate to the national convention? I really want to know. Are you going to try to become a delegate? If so, please comment about it. Or plan to help elect conservatives to those delegate slots? Again, I really want to know. | Read More »
Gee, the Republicans aren’t living up to their promises. What, oh what, should we do?
Oh my goodness! The “conservative” Republican House and Senate leaders don’t seem to want to live up to their promises to cut spending and cut taxes and undo regulations!!!! Oh goodness, what, oh what, should we in the “center-right” of America do? If you are Hugh Hewitt, you tell your radio audience to “call your representative and senators.” How’s that been working out for us? | Read More »

As all of the Redstate political activists have this info at their fingertips, let’s compile it! No?
Undoubtedly, the “political activists” here at Redstate have the following information at their fingertips. The Republican National Committee does not. Let’s provide it, no? So, to that end, please respond here with the answers to the following questions. Obviously, each of you have this information readily at your fingertips, as you are all effective “political activists” where it really counts — in your “political neighborhood” | Read More »
My question for every Front Page and Member Diary issue proponent: What are you going to DO about it?
I will not belabor the point. Much “political” discussion is had here at Redstate, mostly about legislative issues and candidates. Take a look at the subject matter of the Diaries and Front Page articles. They almost always focus on some political issue. But, rarely, do the writings conclude with a prescription or formula for what we are to DO to fix the outlined problem. Sometimes, | Read More »
Civic Responsibility in Action: Joe [the Plumber] Wurzelbacher Announces Run for U.S. Congress
Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, better known as “Joe the Plumber,” yesterday announced his candidacy in Ohio’s 9th Congressional District, currently held by Democrat Marcy Kaptur. Almost all of the Democrat Media have reported that this is Joe’s first plunge into politics, but that’s not entirely true. Joe jumped into the real ball game of politics last spring when he ran for, and was elected to, one | Read More »
Mark Block of Cain campaign, with creative video strategy, gets out Cain’s message: “Get Involved!”
Herman Cain’s stump speech often ended with the message of “Stay Informed,” “Stay Involved” and “Stay Inspired,” with short discussions of each point. Last week I listened to Herman make those points again in Phoenix at an AZ GOP fundraiser where Herman was the keynote speaker. A little birdie ran into Mark Block during Herman’s speech (Mark was walking around observing the crowd’s reaction to | Read More »
Occupy Wall Street, Phoenix Edition: Will They Vote For Obama Again? In Their Own Words
Yes, these Occupy Americans, at least in Phoenix, Arizona, on October 15, 2011 in downtown Phoenix, are somewhat dazed and confused when it comes to articulating what they believe with respect to whether President Obama has been an effective president and whether they will vote for him again. Enjoy! This fellow really does not like Republicans. Hey, Obama just needs four more years! This courageous | Read More »
There are Republicans who make things happen, Republicans who watch things happen, and Republicans who wonder, “What happened?”
I come to Redstate just about every day and see comment after Diary after comment after Diary about this, that and the other thing about Republican Party politics. And what I just about never see, in the sig lines of the contributors at Redstate, including the moderators/editors, is information relating to their participation in the Republican Party itself. Me? I’m an elected precinct committeeman in | Read More »
Heroes for this election cycle and fun with Voter Vault
Recent reporting reveals the obvious strategy Obama needs to win reelection: get more of his “traditional base” voters to the polls. Exit polls showed that Obama won 43 percent of the white vote in 2008 — in the typical range for a Democrat — but Gallup shows that his approval rating among whites now stands at less than a third. Ultimately, the Obama strategy for | Read More »

In case this news has not yet been regurgitated here: Perry/Trump
Hat tip to www.TheRealRevo.com http://therealrevo.com/blog/?p=55662 What does it all mean? I do not know.

Concrete national goals, and how “we the people” can make them a reality
Back on August 8, 2011, somebody outlined these goals for fixing our current Obama-caused mess: We need to stop this deficit spending, balance our budget, repeal Obamacare, cancel all unused stimulus funds, and reform our entitlement programs. We have to have an adult conversation about our spending commitments; circumstances have changed, and we must adapt. I know none of this will be easy, but, “thick” | Read More »
What ColdWarrior would like to see at Redstate — Bluntly
Sorry to be such a “jerk.” Some people here don’t like blunt talk. They believe little ol’ ColdWarrior drives away from the fight those who might otherwise turn into fighters. Too funny. That mean old ColdWarrior! Would like to see some evidence that mean old CW drove someone away — with names. So far, no such names have been forthcoming. If you don’t want blunt | Read More »
