Ross Douthat Still Doesn’t Get It
One may read Mr. Douthat’s article here. I’m sure he’s a nice guy, but he doesn’t get it. I don’t believe that “just passing something” of a healthcare bill will be a positive. The downward spiral in Obama’s poll numbers & the amazing rise in grassroots activism demonstrated by the TEA Parties & the 9-12 rallies is not about a single issue – it’s about | Read More »
I’m Sick & Tired of Republican “leaders” Who Bash Our Own who tell the Truth!
Rep. Joe Wilson’s outburst, calling Obama on just one of his lies, received swift condemnation from so-called Republican “leaders” in the House & Senate. McCain was one of many who piled on for Wilson’s lack of “decorum.” Maybe Wilson could have chosen different words, but give me a break! Wilson spoke for many of us who want to tell Obama that we are on to | Read More »
Healthcare Reform Debate Response to President Obama – My Email to [email protected]
Dear President Obama, I am one of the multitude who opposes government-controlled health-care. This email address was set up to alert your staff to “disinformation” regarding the health-care proposals being debated in congress and across our wonderful country. I have not read every one of the 1,000 pages or so in the bill; I have, however read many of them & find the plain language | Read More »
Time for Us to Take the Fight to the Democrats
Ladies & gentlemen, we have been handed a great opportunity by the Democrats in the House. As you may have heard, the Franking Commission will not let House Republicans send information… This is a HUGE opportunity for those of us in the grassroots to take the ball & run it to the house, to use a football analogy. We are the ones to take this | Read More »
What is their plan? What strategic contingencies do we need to have?
Obama’s poll numbers are sinking like a rock filled with lead. His policies & proposals are meeting with great opposition from inside congress & out here. We are licking our chops for 2010. In all this, I remember Joe Biden telling a group that times would get tough, poll numbers would drop, & he was urging the faithful to stick with Obama through this… This | Read More »
Rush Limbaugh – Our Modern Day Thomas Paine
Rush Limbaugh’s speech to CPAC was simply brilliant. For me, he encapsulated conservatism, explained & defended it as well as I’ve ever seen, heard, or read. He dispensed common sense conservatism with alacrity, great humor, and authentic passion. Rush is much like Thomas Paine. Neither were accepted by the “establishment” of his time. Paine’s words rallied a new nation to not give up the fight | Read More »
Time to Act – Tell Congress NO Bank Nationalization
I really don’t think that this needs much explanation. We have stories where Republican Senators are speaking positively of this. It’s time to act – using Redstate’s & Human Event’s great CAPWIZ feature, please find your representatives (whether they be Republican, Democrat, or happy clown) & politely, professionally, let them know that Bank nationalization is a complete non-starter. Get this to your friends, family, | Read More »
Feeling a little “Radical” myself lately
I’ve been doing some research on Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.” It’s a very interesting work, with some disturbing aspects. I’m not saying nor will I say that we should adopt these tactics 100%, however there are some things to learn not only to counter these tactics from the left but also to inculcate some of these for our benefit. Has anyone read the entire | Read More »
Conservatism Without “Cliques”
We need to be conservative Republicans, not segregating ourselves into little High-School type cliques. We have the winning strategy for elections & governance: Strong National Defense Fiscal Responsibility Limited Government Conservative Social Values Standing alone, these are winning issues. Together, they are almost invincible. We have the watershed victories of 1980 & 1994 as evidence of what happens when Republicans run as total conservatives, expousing | Read More »
Defeating ACORN & the Lefto’sphere activists
I don’t think ACORN needs an introduction. We’re also aware of dailykos, moveon, & the others of the lefto’sphere. I read recently (& cannot find the link, if someone finds it would you please post it) of 3 million left-wing activists ready to call Democrat legislators to push the Obama/Dem congressional agenda & drown out opposition.
