NOTE: Link to 2012 RedState piece. Last week I received an email blast from the Chairman of the Republican National Committee, Reince Priebus and it began: Friend, I need your opinion: who would you like to see as the Republican presidential nominee in 2016?

Is ‘Income Inequality’ the Democrats and Obama’s new ‘War on Women’ for 2014?
As a long-time loyal Republican and “political observer” I marvel at the ability of President Obama and his Democrat Party message machine to concoct or resurrect wedge issues that are captured in catchy phrases and used to successfully polarize the nation.

Is Clinton/Warner the GOP’s Most Feared 2016 Democrat Ticket?
All signs point to Hillary Clinton being the Democrat Party’s presidential nominee in 2016. Confirming this assumption is the latest Iowa poll from the Des Moines Register. The poll gives Clinton a favorable/unfavorable rating of 89 percent to 7 percent among Iowa Democrats in this first presidential caucus state, where in 2008 Clinton lost to then-Senator Obama.

Is The Song ‘America, The Beautiful’ Politically Incorrect on Veterans Day 2013?
On Sunday, the final hymn in our church was America, The Beautiful, in honor of Veterans Day. We only sang the popular first verse but after reading all the verses I fully expected teams of lawyers from the ACLU, American Atheists or Americans United Against Separation of Church and State to be waiting in the parking lot threatening lawsuits and demanding that the song be torn from | Read More »
