    New Hampshire 2014 GOP Primary “Endorsements”

    Other than the Governor’s race, there should be competitive House races and a competitive Senate race…maybe.  In the Governor’s race- which is held every two years like its neighbor Vermont- Maggie Hassan will be the Democratic candidate.  On the Republican side, there are four candidates in the primary: Daniel Greene, businessman Walt Havenstein, former Gingrich campaign manager Andrew Hemingway and pot legalization advocate Jonathan Smolin. | Read More »

    Massachusetts 2014 GOP Primary “Endorsements”

    Although there are the congressional races, a Governor’s position and a Senate seat up for grabs this year, the fields have been set in all but the 9th Congressional District and the Governor’s race on the GOP side.  This is a very blue state, but there exists a real opportunity here to at least take the Governor’s mansion this year. In that race, Tea Party | Read More »

    Rhode Island 2014 GOP Primary “Endorsements”

    Lincoln Chafee is stepping aside after one term as Governor of Rhode Island.  His chances of general election victory let alone a primary victory were much in doubt given his very low approval ratings.  On the GOP side, the two candidates are Cranston Mayor Alan Fung, a former Democrat, and Barrington businessman Ken Block.  This is turning into a nasty campaign with the Fung side | Read More »

    Delaware 2014 GOP Primary “Endorsements”

    The only primary race in Delaware this year involves the Senatorial race for the seat held by Chris Coons.  Some operatives believe Delaware could be put into play.  These same operatives claim that when an incumbent’s approval ratings drop below 50%, they are in trouble.  Coons stands at 47%. Additionally, many Democratic liberals are not exactly in love with Coons with some describing him as | Read More »

    Who is Abigail Disney and Why Is She So Stupid?

    As the last name suggests, Abigail Disney is the granddaughter of Roy Disney who, along with his more famous brother, Walt, formed Disney Studios.  In her own right, Abigail is a documentary film maker who focuses her movies on social themes, particularly the plight of women in foreign countries.  She sits on the board of directors of several women’s rights groups including the White House | Read More »

    Time To Rethink Our Policy Towards Cuba

    Sitting a mere 90 miles off the southern tip of the United States, Cuba is perhaps the one area for foreign policy many politicians ignore unless you are from Florida.  This writer is of the opinion that greater exposure to American products would enhance the United States in international affairs.  A 50 year history of trade embargoes against Cuba have done little to change that | Read More »

    Liberals Want to Export Ideology

    When discussing free trade, it becomes obvious how a liberal mind sometimes works- weird.  One needs to look at their reasons against expanding free trade.  On their side, they have many think tanks and they come armed with statistics which infer a series of negative outcomes for the United States.  Of course, we on the right have our think tanks and statistics that prove the | Read More »

    Proud to Be “Anti-Choice”

    The pro-choice crowd has adopted the phrase “anti-choice” to refer to us people formerly known (to them) as pro-life.  In essence, these fine folks are defining the issue as they see it, but their choice and use of words is telling.  By denying the label “pro-life,” they show their true colors- their total ignorance of innocent human life.  To them, this has nothing whatsoever to | Read More »

    The 12/35/50 Solution

    In previous articles here at Redstate and elsewhere, I have argued that winning the Hispanic or black vote outright is not necessary to win the Presidency.  Instead, the preferred strategy should be to weaken the Democratic hold on black, Hispanic and female voters.  Furthermore, because a President is decided through the electoral vote count, the GOP need not even target the overall black or Hispanic | Read More »
