Political Facts, Political Strategy
The U.S. has a two party political system. “The people” ordained and established the Supreme Law of the Land, the Constitution, to, among other purposes, “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.” In 2008, only about 65 per cent of the American people eligible to vote bothered to do so. They elected candidates of one of the two major parties in numbers | Read More »
The Republican Party: Fighting with half its brains tied behind its back
I keep reading here at Redstate many grandiose “strategies” for righting our ship of state. “The GOP needs to do X.” “The GOP needs to do Y.” “We need to elect more conservatives.” Uh, yeah. Here’s a simple fact. In the 2008 election cycle, the Republican Party was fighting at half-strength, because on average, across the country, half of the grass roots membership slots in | Read More »
Daddy, what did you DO to stop socialism?
Did you only type away on the internet? To the choir? Or did you actually get into the real ball game of politics in the Republican Party when HALF the precinct committeeman slots were VACANT? Did you actually think chattering away day after day on twitter/facebook/etc. was actually going to change things? Did you actually think that holding signs at a Tea Party was going | Read More »
Here I go again — CPAC and real action
I watched Glenn Beck’s speech. Very inspiring. Then I watched George Will’s speech. Clever. Witty. Factual. But, I did not hear either of them offer any real, practical, grass roots solutions to changing the Republican Party and, thereby, changing the outcome of the elections. Education is great. Theory is great. But “we the people” need to rediscover basic American civics. And that means going to | Read More »

Tea Partiers: Becoming politically relevant through civic duty and the Precinct Committeeman Strategy.
A few months ago, the East Valley Tea Party group did not exist. On Saturday, January 30, 2010, they held a “Superbowl of Conservative Candidates” at a high school in Mesa, Arizona from noon to 8 p.m. Any candidate for elective office professing to be a conservative was given the opportunity to spend the day in a class room fielding questions from interested citizens. Many, | Read More »

Let’s prove Richard Cohen wrong. Let’s have a real party.
Erick Erickson posted today a link to a good article by Richard Cohen about John Edwards which called into question both the judgment of John “I served in Viet Nam” Kerry and whether political parties in the traditional sense are dead in America. Cohen ended the article with this conclusion: The political machine, the organization, even the parties themselves are gone, severely atrophied or discredited | Read More »

Leftist unintended comedy — Howard Dean schools Chris Matthews
I laughed out loud when I watched this exchange between Chris Matthews and moonbat Howard Dean, where Dean explains how the Scott Brown win was really an expression of the Massachusett voters’ embrace of Progressive values — an idiotic argument even Matthews could not help but ridicule. Enjoy! Comedy Gold! Thank you. ColdWarrior No More Scozzafavas! Become a Republican Party precinct committeeman. Now! ————- American | Read More »

Talk about wasted Republican breath
Ah yes, a “call to action.” To DO WHAT, exactly? They never say. Sounds like they want us to “keep doing what you’re doing” — I suppose that means making phone calls, sending faxes and e-mails, mailing pink slips and holding a sign at a Tea Party. But of course they leave it vague — wouldn’t want to be too partisan. Yeah, all those communications | Read More »
Nobody Messes With Joe: Nine Months After Stimulus 49 of 50 States Have Lost Jobs

Beware the “Conservative Grievance Complex” – good for selling books, not for fixing things.
It’s almost as if there is a “Conservative Grievance Complex” that exists to line the pockets of those within it. They will rail about the latest outrage, but don’t tell us HOW we might fix things. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt. Maybe they really don’t know. For example, Rep. Tom Price claimed ignorance at the Redstate gathering in Atlanta when I told | Read More »
