    A conservative approach to higher education

    Check out the video below with former Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, who is now the President of Purdue University.  Just another reason we need more conservatives in higher education. http://video.msnbc.msn.com/the-daily-rundown/52179788

    John McCain as Senate Majority Leader?

    As much as it would pain me, it looks like the GOP’s best possibility on Tuesday would give them 50 seats in the Senate, with the dems having 48 seats, plus 2 independents that caucus with them.  So… if the GOP keeps their current power structure, they are assured of remaining in the minority with a 50-50 vote and Biden being the tiebreaker.  HOWEVER, if | Read More »

    A Plan to Save Private Healthcare

    Ok, I don’t like the title either. It implies that healthcare needs to be “saved” as if the government can do it. I don’t believe that the government is capable of saving anything except for the jobs of government employees. Perhaps a better word would have been “fix”. Regardless, here is something I have thought up. Please comment with your thoughts. 1.) Everyone in this | Read More »

    RLC Drafts resolution encouraging Gov Mark Sanford to run in 2012

    The Republican Liberty Caucus seems to have found their 2012 candidate. They recently passed a resolution to encourage SC Governor Mark Sanford to run for President in 2012. In early 2007, the Council for National Policy, a semi-secretive and exclusive club of social conservative leaders including James Dobson (Focus on the Family), the late Jerry Falwell (Liberty University), and Grover Norquist (Americans for Tax Reform) | Read More »

    SC pols fight over republican brand (Sanford vs. Graham)

    My apologies if this has already been posted. In the first video below, Lindsey Graham is seen giving a speech at the SC Republican Convention. In the speech, he has this to say: “I am not a libertarian. If you are, you’re welcome to vote for me and help this party, but we’re not going to build this party around libertarian ideals.” That is an | Read More »

    Obama sits through Ortega’s 50 min Bashing of U.S.

    Ok, let me make the obvious joke here: The set-up: President Obama today sat through a 50-minute speech by Daniel Ortega in which Ortega accused the United States government/military of being terrorists. The punchline: As he spoke, a confused Obama raised his hands in the air and screamed “Hallelujia! Praise the Lord!”

    The Problem with Big Government

    In 1979, when President Carter decided that the federal government should take over our school system, which had previously been under state control, he ran into one problem: the constitution. The United States Constitution, under the 10th Amendment, says that anything not mentioned specifically in the constitution was to be left under the control of the state or local governments, or to the people themselves. | Read More »

    Obama cheats on Binky… with a different teleprompter!

    According to the AP, Obama brought his teleprompter to the press conference today. A very odd move, indeed. In fact, the article on his press conference starts out by asking: “What kind of politician brings a teleprompter to a news conference?” Apparently Obama’s people were worried about pictures showing him with the teleprompter during the press conference, so instead of his usual Binky, they put | Read More »

    Sanford: Why we don’t want the stimulus

    In a great Op-Ed in the WSJ, Governor Mark Sanford (a potentially great 2012 candidate) had some pointed words for the President. After explaining that South Carolina doesn’t want to be bailed out because “when you’re in a hole, the first order of business is stop digging,” Sanford had these strong words for the President: Last week I reached out to the president, asking for | Read More »

    Wouldn’t it be nice to have an honest, ballsy conservative voice out there?

    Wait, we have one:       Mark Sanford continues to be the only person who continues to stand up for conservative values.  Sure there are people who have a solid conservative voting record, but I don’t think anyone matches Sanford’s record and rhetoric on issue after issue.  Sign me up as a supporter for 2012 if this guy decides to run.
