    I thought I was a Republican. Guess I was wrong

    I thought I was a Republican. I am pro-life I am for federalism I believe in the right of people to their own property I am a supporter of 2nd amendment rights I believe people are born with a given gender that is immutable I believe marriage vows matter I believe torture is wrong I believe people should be allowed to choose what they buy | Read More »

    FYI No Candidates yet qualify for the nomination

    Rule 40 is a glorious thing.  Checking Paragraph b (b) Each candidate for nomination for President of the United States and Vice President of the United States shall demonstrate the support of a majority of the delegates from each of eight (8) or more states, severally, prior to the presentation of the name of that candidate for nomination. Notwithstanding any other provisions of these rules | Read More »

    The Democrats (not the Republicans) are about to Splinter

    Republicans: Formed in the legacy of a Big Tent.  We have a three legged stool: Social Conservatism, Fiscal Conservatism, Strong Defense.  This tent can appeal to each of the groups without offending the others.  There are some serious internal debates (how much defense do you need compared to cutting spending), but the aims are not at odds.  In addition, the three legs have merged over | Read More »

    Major Shift in Ohio and Illinois (seriously, 20+ points this month)

    The only catch – on the other side.  Head over to RealClearPolitics and check out the polls for the Democratic nomination in Ohio and Illinois over the last month. Ohio: Clinton +5 Clinton +5 Clinton +9 Clinton +20 Clinton +30 Clinton +21 Clinton +9 Illinois: Clinton +3 Sanders +2 Clinton +6 Clinton +37 Clinton +42 If Sanders can win these (and it is highly possible | Read More »

    Rubio: You cannot win. Are you Christie, Carson, or Perry?

    Marco Rubio began February with $5.1M in the bank.  Rubio began January with $10.4M in the bank.  Extrapolating (which is risky) would put him just about dead broke now.  In all fairness we should expect that he raised more money in February than in January.  However, we should also note that there were elections to run all through February, and then the more expensive ones | Read More »

    Rubio’s Path to the White House

    At the outset:  Go CRUZ!!  In case any are curious I am a candibot – full disclosure. Rubio I believe no longer has a viable path to the nomination this cycle.  Between now and next Tuesday he will lose another 5 contests, and on Tuesday he will lose another 4 making him 2 and 27.  That is assuming he wins Florida.  The only pathway he | Read More »

    Open Letter to Ted Cruz

    Ted, I want you to win.  I believe that Rubio would be a continuation of George W. Bush compassionate conservatism.  I believe Trump would be the ruination of the conservative movement, and I believe Sanders or Clinton would oversee the nation finally losing its last vestiges of federalism.  You have two targets you must hit on Thursday, and hit them hard. Trump: Trump’s supporters like | Read More »

    Dear Rubio: You want to win? Make an offer

    The Senate is promising not to approve any nominations made by Obama.  Good for them.  They are a sack of liars, but let’s assume they are willing to hold to this one.  Rubio wants to consolidate the non-Trump vote which is essentially split three ways between 1) Rubio 2) Cruz 3) Other. You want Cruz’ support?  Great – nominate him to the Supreme Court right | Read More »

    Houston’s debate

    CNN will be hosting another debate on Thursday.  There is a good chance that Ben Carson will be out by then leaving only four on the stage.  Kasich is terrible, and probably won’t get much speaking time.  Leaving really just three debaters on stage: Trump:   Path to victory – Continue to win a split electorate.  Win a majority of delegates on March 1st, narrowly | Read More »

    A Cruz Supporter Disagreeing with Cruz

    Obviously from the last few diaries I wrote I am a “candibot” for Cruz.  Here is an area I disagree with him though.  In the current Apple/FBI scuffle Cruz says that Apple should work with the FBI in retrieving the data from a recovered iPhone, and learn to get past their distrust of the Federal Government.  A refusal is tantamount to defying a search warrant.  Let | Read More »
