    Please convince me on Trump: Open Thread

    I can give reasons for my support of Cruz: His behavior as a Senator was consistent with what he said he would do in the Senate He is willing to disagree with both Democrats and Republicans He would rather see the government shut down than continue to pay people who kill babies for a living He has the background and knowledge to appoint good justices | Read More »

    Trump starts wheezing in Iowa

    Let me begin by admitting something:  I like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100%.  I want Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% to win and Donald Trump to lose.  If not Ted then Bobby Jindal.  There are certain men who would be good for the nation and others who would be bad.  I have no reason to believe that Trump will | Read More »

    Donald Trump: Fighting for ISIS is fine

    Taken from The Blaze (so take it for what its worth).  Donald Trump apparently thinks that the Federal Government should look into individual Mosques, check how far out there the ideology is, and shut down some of them.  I imagine the mayor of San Francisco would agree, but replace “Mosque” with “Church.”  Also: Trump added, “I think it’s incredible that somebody can come from this country … | Read More »

    Ted Cruz: David, Goliath, and Saul

    So, I was thinking today about Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% and I think the story of David and Goliath is an apt comparison.  First thing to note is that the Philistines basically had Israel under their thumb.  Nobody was even allowed to have a sword without Philistine approval.  There were two swords in the whole kingdom, the third would be forcibly | Read More »

    Syria and the Constitution

    I am not a foreign policy expert.  I am not an expert on the Constitution either.  However, for Constitutional conservatives I think we should probably be a little more hesitant on any involvement in Syria.  Taking a look through Article I Section 8 we see that Congress has the power: To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offences against the | Read More »

    Reaching out to the Black Community

    An article by Jason Riley got me thinking about outreach.  I personally believe that conservatives have the best solutions for the nation, all of the nation, including African Americans.  Thinking about how to present it, I may be wrong and this may not resonate with anyone anywhere, but if any of our candidates wants it here you go. Start– Thank you for having me here today.  I | Read More »

    How to win defunding

    First, in all steps end the ability of Democrats to filibuster.  Use reconciliation, nuclear option, force them to actually speak for hours on end, or something else, I don’t care.  Just break it. Step 1 – pass a full CR with a stipulation that no funds go to PP.  This is then vetoed Step 2 – Pass an AG funding bill (food stamps) including the | Read More »

    When Taliban morality exceeds Army morality

    There are two stories currently in the news about Afghanistan.  The first is about a Green Beret who was removed from a camp in Kunduz and discharged for beating a child rapist.  Personally I think the man showed great restraint in that the rapist ran away.  I personally would not have expected him to be able to walk. The second story is about how the Taliban has retaken Kunduz. | Read More »

    Crony Capitalism – Marco Rubio edition

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 94% is laying out a plan to encourage companies to offer benefits to parents taking time off for new births.  His plan is basically to offer a tax break to companies who provide paid time off to employees.  Sounds great, but… First, this probably will not change the practices of many companies.  If a McDonald’s franchise is running | Read More »

    Expect Trump to Suspend his Campaign

    First, Trump surely knew that he wouldn’t win.  He is an arrogant blowhard, but not a moron.  If he expected to win he would have learned the basics of policy (either foreign or domestic).  If he expected to win he would have actually put his campaign in a furnished room.  If he expected to win he would attend critical forums.  If he expected to win he would | Read More »
