Bragging rights for GOTV: some suggestions for getting them
One of two things will happen on Nov. 2. Either the Democrats will retain power in the House of Representatives, or not. Same re the Senate. Assuming the Democrats lose that power, in one or both cases, will you have bragging rights? Will you be able to say, “I actually got some people to the polls, I think, because I . . . “?

A shorter “Pledge to America” from a conservative, “non-professional candidate” for the House, and some suggestions
Many have expressed their thoughts on the new “Pledge to America” by the Republican House members. Had they asked me to write it, I would have at least pledged to end earmarks. Yesterday morning, Arizona CD-8 candidate Jesse Kelly, a Marine combat vet who has never before run for public office, released a new campaign ad that expresses, in fewer than thirty seconds, some ideas | Read More »
“We the People” and Glenn Beck’s “I can’t believe I live in an America where ______.”
September 22, 2010 Yesterday on Glenn Beck’s program, he used the theme, “I can’t believe I live in an America where ______” to drive home the point that the Democrats are doing really, really bad things. Did you know that the Democrats are doing really, really bad things?!?! I tuned in about half-way through his hour-long program. It was late, but I decided to watch | Read More »
BREAKING: Obama attended a seance with a witch!
No, not really. Bill Maher and the lamestream media will talk, and talk, and talk about Christine O’Donnell’s revelation that she once attended a seance. But I don’t recall them talking much about this, neither while he was campaigning for a seat in the U.S. Senate or when he ran for the presidency: Obama wrote about these experiences in his first book, Dreams from My | Read More »
“We haven’t won anything yet, folks.” So, what to DO to help our candidates win?
Yesterday at the Redstate Gathering, Erick Erickson, as did other speakers, reminded the attendees that we have not yet won a thing at the ballot box because we have one more election to go — the Nov. 2 general election. One of my fellow Arizonans who was there asked if I could send to him my thoughts about how he might be able to get | Read More »
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
John 8:32. JB Williams over at American Thinker hits one out of the park regarding Obama, and the progressives’, clever use of language to obscure truth regarding “the rich” they berate and attack. The ‘Rich’ Have Another Name: ‘Employers’ The LA Times proudly proclaims, “Obama blasts continued tax cuts for the rich!” But every time you hear leftists refer to “the rich,” remember that “the | Read More »
Obama’s Sep. 10 Press Conference — an opportunity? Shall we scrutinize both Obama and his cowering press toadies — and more?
President Obama will be without his teleprompter on September 10 when, we’ve been told by CNN, he will hold his next press conference. This is Obama’s last chance, probably, to “step in it,” unscripted, without a teleprompter, before the Nov. 2 election. Well in advance of it. This provides conservative Republicans an opportunity, no? Like all of you, I am appalled at the softball questions | Read More »
Candidate Obama on strategy for winning in Iraq in his own words
Hat tip to Drudge for posting this: Will Opuppet acknowledge in his big Teleprompter reading tonight that he was wrong and President Bush was right? I think we all know the answer to that question. And then you may have seen this bit of news about what the troops think of their Commander-in-Chief: A Military Times poll conducted early this year found that 31 percent | Read More »
Obama claimed not to know who the “Americans for Prosperity” are. Now he can tell us.
Because Angryrightwinghousewife strikes again! All those scary puppets of foreign-controlled corporations, big oil companies, big banks, and those big insurance companies wanting to repeal provisions of “health reform,” because it will improve their bottom lines even if it is bad for the American people, were at this Americans for Prosperity event last Friday evening to learn about how to Get Out The Vote as part | Read More »
Stephani Scruggs invites you to “vacation” in DC Sep. 9-12
Please watch this if you have five minutes to spare: Then, if you have a few minutes, please take a look at this list of basic American civics and other classes (you might see some individuals and organizations familiar to you) offered at the Unite in Action Symposium on Sept. 9 and 10 at the Omni Shoreham hotel in DC: http://marchondc.org/Symposium.aspx I’ve been through two | Read More »
104 days until the general election redux — what are YOU DOING to Get Out The Vote for conservative Republican candidates?
Some of you may recall that I occasionally advocate here at Redstate that conservatives, who consider themselves “political activists,” actually involve themselves in Republican party politics. A few weeks back, when we were 104 days from Nov. 2, I posted this. Now, we’re at 66 days. “Party politics” – what does that mean, if anything, to you? To me, it means actually being a “card | Read More »
AngryRightWingHouseWife vs. John McCain
Enjoy! Just one “mama grizzly” trying to convince voters to vote for Republican candidates who will take our Constitution seriously. I’ve seen this lady in action and she is terrific. For Liberty, ColdWarrior, PC (that’s “precinct committeeman,” not “political child!”) Conservatives, UNITE! CHANGE the Republican Party and save the world by UNITING INSIDE the Party as precinct committeemen. NOW! (73 days until Nov. 2 — | Read More »
31.8 per cent PC strength to 57.5 per cent from 2008 to 2010
I did an analysis tonight using the Maricopa County, AZ Recorder’s Over Quota Report and the PC “deemed elected” report. Go here for the two reports: recorder.maricopa.gov/web/candcamp.aspx According to the “Precinct Committeeman by legislative district” report, we now have, in Maricopa County, the following numbers of PCs: Rep: 3,135 Dem: 712 Libertarian: 29 On the “Overquota Report,” there’s one precinct with a Dem overage, of | Read More »
A little imagination by Tea Partiers in Phoenix helps IN A BIG WAY with GOTV for a conservative and gets local TV news coverage (link to video)
I’ve been telling every grass roots conservative I know here in the Phoenix area (and, for that matter, some of the “leaders” of the “national” groups) that they’ve got to get beyond rallies and protests and get involved in Get Out The Vote efforts for whom they believe are the BEST conservative candidates in the Republican Party primaries. Some of the grass roots conservative groups | Read More »
Now: Assange getting White House tips. Breaking: DoD confirms WH commo with NYT intermediaries. SecDef says Huge Damage: Bombshell — Judge Napolitano of Fox says WikiLeaks asked Obama Admin to review docs for redactions, got no response
(UPDATE, August 2, 2010) The London Telegraph is now reporting that Assange has told the media that he has been advised by “inside sources in the White House” not to return to the US as he could be arrested. Mr Assange says despite this he still fears he is at risk of being forcefully detained by the US government as a material witness in the | Read More »
Lessons Learned: The JournoList, the American electorate, and “the Obama Mistake.”
Doctor Zero at HotAir nails the significance of the JournoList revelations and posits a theme for the 2010 and 2012 elections for those of the American electorate who foolishly voted for Barack Hussein Obama: the election of Barack Hussein Obama, aka Teleprompter Boy, Opuppet, Onitwit, Onincompoop, etc., may be known forevermore, in the “dictionary of American politics,” as “the Obama Mistake.” Because those leftists/progressives in | Read More »
What do you want in the next 104 days? I know what I want.
I asked myself the day after Election Day, 2008, what I wanted. I wanted an America that had the sense and means to make sure that a real charlatan, a real Manchurian Candidate, a real Marxist/Leninist/socialist/commie/pinko/Nancy-boy never again got elected President. Or, for that matter, to ANY seat in Congress. So, what to do? How do we make that happen from November, 2008 and going | Read More »
The Solution to Political Pollution is Dilution – But, it takes YOU
There’s an old saying in environmental law: “The solution to pollution is dilution.” It applies to politics, too. The solution to political pollution is dilution. We need to dilute the power of the libturds by increasing the number of good, decent, conservative Americans in the real ball game of politics. In that way we can change the outcome of the upcoming elections. We can decrease | Read More »
Why conservatives need to be IN the Party
I was one of the 18 (Hat tip to SeeingRedAZ): GOP county board votes to endorse Montgomery in county attorney’s race The Executive Guidance Committee of the Maricopa County Republican Committee voted Thursday night to endorse Bill Montgomery for Maricopa County Attorney over appointed incumbent Rick Romley and Chandler Mayor Boyd Dunn, a divorce lawyer. Montgomery is a former deputy county attorney. The bylaws require | Read More »
“THE BORDERS ARE QUITE SECURE”. Congressman Pete Stark’s Town hall meeting in Fremont CA, June 26, 2010
Know Democrats, Know Despair No Democrats, No Despair California Democrat Rep. Pierre “Pete” Stark’s performance before his constituents on June 26, 2010 speaks for itself. This is what 38 years in the Congress produces — it’s hard to watch. From cvminutemen’s description of the video on YouTube: Here’s the video from Congressman Pete Stark’s Town Hall meeting last Saturday (Jne 26, 2010). I used the | Read More »
