The Debate: All eyes on Gingrich, Perry and Huntsman
Tomorrow night, ABC will host another GOP presidential primary debate. It should be good. Most of these people know it is do-or-die time for their campaigns and so we should see them hold nothing back. The audience that matters are the grassroots people in Iowa and New Hampshire and the two questions are obviously: Who can create enough momentum to take the lead in (1.) | Read More »
Perry: The ONLY candidate that can beat Obama
As conservatives look over the field of candidates we have been provided this election cycle, one thing becomes abundantly clear: most of these candidates will lose to Obama in 2012. But Rick Perry is the only guy that can show why he is the one you want to have a beer with while Obama is the one upset that the price of arugula is has | Read More »
Dear Republicans: Don’t forget your evangelical base
As the Republican Party continues to adopt more unity of thought on flagship issues, certain members of the party seem to be less and less willing to stand by those principles. This worries me. Many members of the party seem to be forgetting that the Republican party is a vehicle that acts as the glue to hold together a coalition of voters that share common | Read More »
Dear Newt: Please dismount your high horse.
Newt, I have grown very tiresome of the act. Every debate you attack the moderators with or without cause. Much to my surprise this election cycle, you have become the keeper of the conservative flame. Last week you declared that you would be the nominee. You stated that while you once thought the race would be between Romney and the “anti-Romney”, you now thought the | Read More »
Cuccinelli for Governor of Virginia
At the end of last week, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli announced that he would be running for Governor against current Virginia Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling. This is great news for the Republican Party here in the Commonwealth. This is by far the easiest endorsement I have had to make. Cuccinelli has upset Bolling by stepping “out of line” as Lieutenant Governors usually have the | Read More »
Jaime Radtke Will Win Virginia’s U.S. Senate Race (2 of 2)
As much as beltway insiders would love a heavyweight bout between George Allen and Tim Kaine, the tea party, grassroots movement in Virginia must remember that Jim DeMint still needs more backup in the Senate. We love our guys but we need more of them. If we are to change the way the Senate works, we need more conservatives and less republicans. 100 tea party | Read More »

The primary elections for Jim Webb’s soon-to-be open U.S. Senate Seat here in Virginia is quickly approaching on June 12, 2012. Due to high name recognition, former Senator George Allen leads all opponents in the polls. However, like the grassroots nationwide who has thus far rejected establishment favorite Mitt Romney in the presidential primaries at the behest of the Republican establishment, the grassroots in Virginia | Read More »
Conservatives must oppose detaining U.S. citizens without trial.
The National Defense Authorization Act would give POTUS the ability to detain American citizens within our borders without trial. As long as a citizen is deemed to be a “terrorist” the U.S. military can detain you indefinitely without trial on our soil. It is known as provision 1031. Since 1878, when Congress passed the Posse Comitatus Act, the U.S. military has not been authorized to | Read More »
Iowa: Perry has spent $3M; Newt has spent $0.
There are thirty-five days until the Iowa caucuses. Conservatives have been evaluating Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain and Rick Perry to determine who will best represent their views. They have been trying to find an alternative to Mitt Romney. Yesterday, the Herman Cain campaign imploded. It is over. Cain is done. His followers need a place to go. The latest Insider Advantage Survey has Cain with | Read More »
Iowa Conservatives should coalesce around Perry.
Last week, CNN reported that leading Iowa social conservatives were secretly meeting to determine who to endorse and coalesce around to avoid a Romney nomination. The thinking is that to avoid a splintered vote in Iowa, leaving a path to victory for Romney, the Newt, Cain and Perry supporters must unite behind a single Romney-slayer-candidate. This candidate must be a winner and someone that will | Read More »
