No, Libertarian Does Not Mean Leftist
I want to address this diary, which starts off with the title “Why Libertarian is Just Another Word for Leftist.” The diary has a couple of false assumptions which need to be addressed up front: -Rand Paul hasn’t positioned himself as a libertarian, but a constitutional conservative with liberty-minded opinions. His words are not libertarian dogma. Yes, the diarist does concede that “It cannot be | Read More »
Will You Join Senators Rand Paul And Mike Lee In Supporting Greg Brannon?
One of North Carolina’s Senate seats is up for grabs in 2014. It provides an outstanding opportunity for Republicans to gain another spot in the upper chamber. Kay Hagan is being hammered by the Koch brothers, who are exposing her support of ObamaCare, which is greatly hurting the people of the state. The real race may be the Republican primary, which will be held May | Read More »
What Do We Do About Ukraine?
There is obviously much outrage about the Russian occupation of Crimea, a semi-autonomous region of Ukraine. There has been widespread condemnation among western nations for Russia’s “invasion.” However, the United States has a credibility problem when it seeks to condemn the Russian invasion, as the U.S. has been no stranger to invading foreign nations which are further away and less of a national security interest | Read More »
Sen. Pat Roberts Isn’t Alone: Rep. Pete Sessions Has Gone AWOL
This month we learned that Senator Pat Roberts doesn’t actually live in Kansas. Instead, he uses a golf course as his address. He is being challenged by Constitutional Conservative Dr. Milton Wolf. Congressman Pete Sessions of Texas, not to be confused with Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama, has apparently gone missing as well. The White Rock Tea Party did some investigating and discovered that the | Read More »
Out With Graham, In With Bright
There is a lot of attention being focused on primary challenges to sitting Republican Senators this election cycle. Before the races started heating up, many conservatives across the country were most looking forward to unseating South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham. And yet, almost no national attention has been given to the race. This should change, as all polling shows Graham vulnerable to falling beneath the | Read More »
Unconditional Agreement Versus Compromise
“Why don’t you right-wingers just learn to compromise?” That is the question liberals and moderates ask every time true conservatives dare to put up a fight. The problem is that they don’t understand what true compromise is. Compromise involves two parties making concessions to reach a settlement. What they really mean to ask is: “Why don’t you right-wingers just learn to agree with us?” When | Read More »
Why The Rush To Support Ben Sasse, RedState?
Let me first make clear that I am not trying to smear Ben Sasse, a Republican running for Senate in Nebraska. The Club for Growth and Senate Conservatives Fund found fit to endorse him, and Erick is heavily promoting him. But I’m not sold on him. I’m just not sure that he has been properly vetted, and to be fair neither has his main opponent, | Read More »
A Creative Way To Deal With Illegals Already Here
This idea is way outside of the box, but I believe one worth considering. I will likely cover additional, more realistic ideas in a future diary shortly. The Republican base, including myself, would really like to see illegals deported. They committed a crime. An injustice to our legal system and to those waiting in line to join our national legitimately. Now, I would certainly support | Read More »
Dr. Paul Broun Should Be Georgia’s Next Senator
The race to replace Saxby Chambliss as Georgia’s next Senator is already shaping up to be very competitive. The presumptive Democratic nominee is Michelle Nunn, daughter of former Senator Sam Nunn. There are eight Republican candidates; five of them being major contenders. They are: Congressman Paul Broun, Congressman Phil Gingrey, Congressman Jack Kingston, former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel, and businessman David Perdue. For | Read More »
Democratic Leadership Has No One But Themselves To Blame For Gridlock
One of the themes I expect President Obama to complain about in the SOTU address (as well as what will likely be a theme for the DNC in 2014) is the fake crisis of gridlock. And yet the Democratic leadership in Congress has perpetuated gridlock through their own actions. Obama, Pelosi, and Reid love to talk about the virtues of bipartisanship. And yet when it | Read More »
