    Multiple conservative and establishment candidates dilute the strength of each other and lead to a delayed consensus.  There are several articles covering this, while it is also common sense.  RedState has a long history of endorsing candidates for different races.  The track record, at least in terms of endorsing effective candidates, is solid.  As with any process, there are mistakes, but these are still races | Read More »

    A Layman’s Thoughts on Last Night’s Debate

    Our national anxiety is at a fever pitch. We have existential threats on the outside and on the inside.

    Mislabeling, Lying, and Redefining: Leftists’ Favorite Tools Morph Terrorism into Citizens with Guns

    Vox is really talented when it comes to mislabeling, lying and redefining.  They have the same level of integrity you would expect from Pravda, only in the 21st Century.  And, like Pravda, no shame in any of these exercises.  In this case, they are asserting that citizens with guns are a much larger threat than ISIS and Syrian refugees. The entire article is premised on | Read More »

    If you Stand for Nothing, You will Fall for Anything

    Our forefathers declared our Citizens’ inherent right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.  By popular vote, we extended that right from White, Male, Property owners to anyone 18 and older in age.  Our concept of liberty, over the centuries, has evolved. Liberty is at the core of the raison d’etre of our Nation.  We are not France.  We are not a country where “Liberty, | Read More »

    The Democrats are Starting to Party Like its 1968

    In 1968, the Democratic Party “invited” scores of protesters to their convention in Chicago.  In the minds of many, what was supposed to illustrate just how “with it” the Democrats were ended up with police fighting with protesters throughout the city.  The TV news coverage resulted in Mayor Daley receiving 135,000 letters supporting police action balanced against 5,000 against.  The Party had lasted eight years | Read More »

    Why are so many Crazy or Idiotic Ideas becoming National Law?

    Most politicians crave power.  All politicians who want to remain in office in a democracy cater to the constituency that will deliver them a victory, whether legal or not.  So where you live determines your constituency. Radicals and aggrieved minorities always want to change something.  For example, NAMBLA wants men to be able to love boys.  La Raza wants parts of the U.S. returned to | Read More »

    What are Polls for, When No One Listens Anymore?

    A poll is in essence like checking your blood pressure.  You use it to register the health of something on which to be voted.  As such, everyone has a vested interest in the outcome, whether for or against someone or something. Retail politicians use polls to decide what to say or to support an opinion.  They rely on accurate polling when the point of the | Read More »
