    Common Cents take on the RNC, Eastwood performance a trojan horse for Republicans connecting with Indies.

    You just saw the next President.  President Romney.   It’s all over but the crying for the left. Wow, no wonder the Dems and propaganda media are in full hate and smear mode!   What a convention!  Filled with realism, opportunity, accomplished people, not affirmative action frauds. Rice-polished, solid, real, not a surprise for those that know her, but she definitely gained much credibility in the public | Read More »

    Milton Friedman on health care, 1978 @ Mayo, wisdom is timeless.

    Six part series that is informative and very timely to what we are dealing with today.  Incredibly from 1978. Part 1 he describes a general trend of government taking over more and more over time.  It’s just what unchecked government does. The first couple minutes of Part 2 describe exactly how this POS is happening.  The urge to tap new funds for new programs is | Read More »

    Super Tuesday Open Thread

    Gingrich wins GA, called around 7pm EST. Romney in a tight race w/ Paul in VT and VA. WOW. Romney ahead in OH which is bad news for Santorum.

    Finally, an adult in the room: Thomas Sowell: Gingrich’s Past, Our Future

    Sowell: “Dwelling on the former speaker’s “baggage” won’t help the nation’s future.” Wow, this is a must read. It’s hard to even grab excerpts from Sowells piece since it’s so well stated. But how much weight should we give to this stuff when we are talking about the future of the nation? This is not just another election, and Barack Obama is not just another | Read More »

    My take on Bloomberg Debate

    Overall one of the best debates in that there was less gotcha crap and candidates had more time to make better arguments, rather than be forced into uninformative sound bites. Gingrich won, hands down.   In addition, if you watch all the debates, you’ll see he rises to the top overall.  People are starting to warm up to him, saying his baggage may not matter as | Read More »

    Obama longs for days of “entire population…hearing one source of news”"

    In a recent interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Obama was asked about the lack of hope and change in DC and continued partisanship, he gives a couple reasons why.   One reason, congressional districting was a theory he has seen proposed.  The second reason, freakin chilling, was his own idea of the diversification “splintering” of the media.   He longed for the days where “…the entire population | Read More »

    A 3 year pivot to jobs, jobs, jobs, how ’bout a pivot to reality, Mr. President?

    This will be a short diary because what else can you say after watching this video montage.  The President has been jawboning for over three years about jobs, jobs, jobs, pivoting to jobs, focusing on jobs.   Evidently he thinks anytime he needs to soothe America all he has to do is mention jobs. Like blowing smoke on a bee hive.  Obama has nothing but smoke. | Read More »

    Conservatives: Born or Made, What’s Your Story?

    It’s always interesting when talking to fellow conservatives a bit about their background and how they arrived at their thinking. Was there a eureka moment when the scales dropped from your eyes? I think a little insight might reveal some common threads in how to appeal to even more people that have not truly discovered conservatism. I grew up small town/suburb middle class with a | Read More »

    Trump is out.

    After considerable deliberation and reflection, I have decided not to pursue the office of the Presidency. This decision does not come easily or without regret; especially when my potential candidacy continues to be validated by ranking at the top of the Republican contenders in polls across the country. I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win | Read More »

    Hidden taxes and inflation from Obama’s fiscal disaster

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/04/19/balancing-budgets-drivers-backs/ Talk about inflation and taxation.  Prices for all kinds of fines/violations/licenses/fees are skyrocketing as governments are scrambling to raise new revenue to pay for all the programs in place. This is a prime example of government only looking out for itself in the interest of self preservation, and not looking out for you.   Oh yeah, “it’s for your safety!”  Open wide, you are about | Read More »
