    The Silver Lining: Republicans can Call Marriage Equality a Non-Issue

    It doesn’t matter what the Supreme Court ruled. We can expect mainstream media to ask the question of every GOP candidate whenever they get the chance. Whether it’s about the ruling, gay marriage in general, or what a candidate would do about marriage equality if they’re elected, they have an optional out. “The law of the land has been set and as President, I cannot | Read More »

    Jeb isn't Bush 3. He's Romney 2.

    I like Jeb Bush. I like Mitt Romney. I believe both men want what’s best for the country and they could really bridge gaps if they were ever given a chance in the White House. Unfortunately, neither has the ability to win for the very reason that many Republicans believe they can. Both are too moderate. The Republican Establishment continues to try to win by | Read More »

    Why the Establishment Needs to Get Out of the Way this Time

    It’s an endless cycle. Every election year, I preach the same message. It used to be through letters to the editor. Then, the blogosphere and social media came around and made things easier. Regardless of the venue, I can’t seem to get over the hump that the Republican establishment mounts every 2-4 years, but that won’t deter me from trying. We cannot put up another | Read More »

    Even in Bi-Partisan Deal, Obama Botches it with Ego

    The campaign is over. Barack Obama has already won the last election he will ever run. Why, then, did he use his speech about the potential for a fiscal cliff deal to take jabs at Congress in general and the Republicans in particular?

    There Are Only Two Possibilities: Either the President was Incompetent or he Intentionally Misled America

    There’s simply no way around it now. The Obama administration was aware early on that there were heavy weapons used and had no indication that the attacks in Benghazi were spontaneous protests gone awry. According to accounts provided by intelligence officials listening to the testimony of former CIA Director David Petraeus, “the CIA concluded early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack by definition, because | Read More »

    The Two Stages of Obamacare Layoffs

    …and so it begins. Reports are starting to flow in of employers laying off or planning to lay off employees. The mathematics behind ObamaCare is seen by many to be cost-prohibitive for business growth. For others, it’s downright dangerous and could cause businesses to shut down entirely. Las Vegas CEO Reportedly Fired 22 Workers Because Of Obama’s Reelection Applebee’s CEO Threatens To Fire Employees And | Read More »

    Most Americans Seem Okay with Raising Taxes as Long as it’s Not Their Taxes

    There seems to be a growing sentiment in the population that taxes are okay. The thought of raising taxes on the rich is arguably one of the primary reasons President Obama won re-election. Today’s America tends to accept an anti-business, semi-socialist mentality of redistribution of wealth in a way that is truly terrifying. Buzzwords like “fair share” filled the campaign and apparently made sense to | Read More »

    The Most Important Debate of Our Generation is Coming Up

    Some would argue that Mitt Romney’s victory over President Obama in the first presidential debate was the defining moment of the campaign, the point at which swing voters realized that their personal goals could most easily be achieved under Romney. Others will say that the final debate will be the one that sticks in voters’ minds or that foreign policy is a key separator between | Read More »

    Romney should Trade: “I’ll show you mine if you show me yours”

    I heard an interesting concept that makes perfect sense. It comes from Wayne Root: Mitt Romney should offer to show everything: school records, tax returns, and medical records. He should do this in exchange for the President doing the same thing. It has been speculated by some that the President is unwilling to show his college and medical records because they may show statuses that | Read More »

    It’s Not Insane to Think Mitt Romney Should Drop Out

    The calls today from conservatives across the country will be for Newt Gingrich to drop out. They’re right. His ship with the leaky hull officially sank yesterday by failing to win in the area of the country where he still had a chance. It’s time to move out of the way for the sake of the country. What won’t be discussed is the impossible dream | Read More »
