Despite what the polls say, Mitt Romney will win by double digits… here’s why
2012 will not be a reprise of 2000. Although Barack Obama is building an army / phalanx of lawyers to try and redirect the election to the courts with the hope that the justices will lean against throwing out a sitting president, it won’t happen. 2000 only happened because the election was so close, with a mere half percent difference between the candidates. In 2012 | Read More »
Mitt Romney as Alexander the Great!
Sadly, this summer Andy Griffith died. Growing up in the 1970’s, watching the Andy Griffith show was simply part of our day. Between episodes of Howdy Doody, The Brady Bunch and Gilligan’s Island, the Andy Griffith Show was just another show where life lessons played out on TV. Together these shows were “Americana” incarnate, where stories about honesty, hard work and community were on display | Read More »
How about letting members of the Fortune 500 run America’s welfare programs?
Imagine what you could do with three quarters of a trillion dollars. You might buy a new house, maybe a new car and maybe even take a trip to Hawaii or Australia. Seriously, what can $750 billion accomplish? Well, that all depends on who’s spending the money. According to the Congressional Research Service the federal government spent $745 billion in 2011 on welfare payments. That | Read More »
The Obama victory strategy: Lie, cheat & steal…
I would suggest that if Mitt Romney avoids shooting himself in foot he will win this election, and will win by somewhere around 10 points. That’s good news. The bad news however is that he will likely have to win by double digits in order to survive the Obama campaign’s plan to employ a phalanx of lawyers to somehow wrest factory out of the jaws | Read More »
RIP USA…just another collapsing victim of the cult of liberalism?
A friend of mine posted the above from E.J. Dionne of the Washington Post on Facebook. While the post quickly garnered a number of “Likes” I was incredulous. My response was thus: What a ridiculous statement. Tax cuts allow the rich and poor alike to keep more of the money they earned rather than give it to nameless, faceless and largely unaccountable bureaucrats to distribute. | Read More »
A successful President Romney won’t be your friend, but if we’re lucky, he’ll be a leader instead
Barring some unforeseen cataclysm, Mitt Romney will be the 45th president of the United States… and the vote will likely not even be close. His acceptance speech at the GOP convention last week did exactly what it had to do, it provided Americans who might have been sitting on the fence with the nudge they needed to climb down and pull the lever for him. | Read More »
Ethanol Mandates – the poster child for zombie government prorgrams that never die – regardless of the damage they do
By definition humans are imperfect. Some are more imperfect than others however. Nature has provided us with a mechanism to reduce the most imperfect among us. That mechanism is sometimes chronicled in something called the Darwin Awards. My favorite Darwin award of all time involved a thrill seeking man who strapped a solid rocket booster to his car in an effort to see how fast | Read More »
Who would you rather call if your child was in danger – Barack Obama or Mitt Romney?
Dinesh D’Souza recently penned a piece called How I became George Obama’s brother. It talks about George Obama calling him (D’Souza) from Kenya seeking $1,000 for badly needed medical care for his hospitalized son. D’Souza, who had met George years ago when he was doing research for “The Roots of Obama’s Rage” was happy to send the money, but wondered “Why are you coming to | Read More »
The November Choice: An election of historic proportions.
As I think about the election in November, I can’t help but think about Matt Ridley and his outstanding book “The Rational Optimist – How Prosperity Evolves”. In it he chronicles the evolution of human society and demonstrates a perfect understanding of why nations fail: “Empires, indeed governments generally, tend to be good things at first and bad things the longer they last. First they | Read More »
Mitt Romney should leverage his tax records to re-educate Americans on the prosperity capitalism can engender.
For months we’ve heard calls from Democrats for Mitt Romney to release his tax records. Last week Harry Reid even claimed he had it from “a number of people” had told him that Mitt Romney had not paid his taxes for a decade and demanded he release them. I’d like to suggest Mitt Romney actually go ahead and release his tax records. Much like pulling | Read More »
