California to Eliminate Marriage?
HotAir is reporting that California Attorney General Jerry Brown has submitted an idea that would eliminate the state’s role in marriage altogether in California. The law would make every opposite sex union now a civil union (effectively what gays and lesbians get in California already, which is identical to marriage, just without the title) and the ceremony and title of “marriage” would be up to | Read More »
What’s So Bad About this Statement?
A lot of criticism has been leveled at RNC Chairman Michael Steele for his comments that he wants to GOP to go “hip-hop.” While most of the criticism has been leveled by liberals, there has been conservative opposition. My question to conservatives is, have you read EXACTLY what Chairman Steele said? “We want to convey that the modern-day GOP looks like the conservative party that | Read More »
Michael Williams for U.S. Senate.
I’m not from Texas, I’m from California (but I LOVE Texas, it’s my favorite state outside of my own!) but I think we all need to work together to put Texas Railroad Comissioner Michael Williams in Sen. Hutchenson’s seat. Please visit his website: http://www.williamsfortexas.com/ He is a conservative’s conservative, a man comitted to conservative ideals and values. Most importantly as Texas Railroad Comissioner, he is the | Read More »
A Royal Embarrasment
So did anyone else hear what a cheapskate our President is? But this is not the only embarrasing news coming out of the first meeting between British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and the new President of the United States. Brown rightly sees President Obama as a kindred spirit, Brown’s “Ronald Reagan,” to he being “Margaret Thatcher,” as Brown has compared himself to Margaret Thatcher, embarrasingly. | Read More »
McCain for Senate Minority Leader? Probably Not, but…
You guys are going to hate me! I just know it! A few weeks ago I wrote a journal saying that attempts to overthrow Sen. McCain with a more conservative candidate may be ill-advised, seeing as he is the most recognizable face in Congress and has taken a strong stance against President Obama’s spending plans, stimulus and budget and could be a voice people listen | Read More »
Reagan Voted for FDR
Cross Posted at Josh LeGuern On Politics Ronald Reagan is the greatest President of the 20th century. His presidency and policies brought about three decades of unprecedented success, peace (at home for the most part), and prosperity this country has ever known. There is something that people forget about Reagan though, he was at one time a Democrat who voted for FDR and as a | Read More »
Liberal Bull&%$! and My Conservative Pledge
So, I was talking to one of my friend’s liberal friends tonight who accused Ronald Reagan of supporting apartheid during the 1980s. First of all, this is categorically false. Both Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher rejected sanctions against South Africa during the 1980s, because they thought that such sanctions would hurt the people that they were trying to help. Was this the right thing to | Read More »
President Obama and the Democrats must be stopped….
We didn’t like the big government policies of George W. Bush and we didn’t really want another big government Republican in John McCain. But President Obama and co have shown they have no desire to be bi-partisan, their desire is power and they’re doing all they can to make sure they have a firm grip on it before there’s any chance of them being thrown | Read More »
Doing some research…..
Hey do you think some of you guys could fill out a survey I’m doing for my marketing research class? It’s on the perception of the Republican Party. Thanks guys!
CA Update: Whitman, Fiorina, Poizner, and 2010.
From the Sacramento Bee: Memo to would-be Democratic gubernatorial candidates Jerry Brown, Gavin Newsom and Antonio Villaraigosa: In case you’re thinking the winner of the 2010 Democratic primary will coast to victory in the general election, you better check out some recent poll numbers on Meg Whitman. According to a new poll out from Rasmussen Reports, the former eBay CEO wins in face-to-face match-ups with | Read More »
And Obama Though McCain would Just Roll Over…
Sworn adversary of conservatives (such as myself), John McCain, has become one of the chief opponents of President Barack Obama’s stimulus plan. And the President thought McCain would just roll over for him in the name of bi-partisanship. Appearing on Hannity tonight, Sen. McCain urged the American people to call their senators and oppose this stimulus on the grounds that it doesn’t really stimulate the economy. There | Read More »
Civility, not Bipartisanship.
You know, it’s really funny to me that liberals in the media are insisting that in order for conservative Republicans to be relevant, they have to go along to get along with the Obama administration because the American people have a desire to see bipartisanship in Washington. Well, first of all I think that is, as my friends across the pond would say, “bollocks.” Even | Read More »
Should Palin Even Run for Re-Election in 2010?
If Sarah Palin is going to run for President in 2012, should she even run for re-election in 2010? Alaska is a remote state and running for re-election in 2010 then turning around a few months after her second inauguration as Governor and running for President might upset Alaskans. She also can’t say, “I’m running for re-election, but it’s really going to be Sean Parnell [Alaska’s Lt. | Read More »
No Stimulus, Dammit.
It failed miserably in 2007 with George W. Bush and it is going to fail miserably again with Barack Obama in 2009, period. Obama is a human being, dammit. His mere presence doesn’t make all right!
Is Palin Taking a Cue from UK Conservatives?
David Cameron is one of the sharpest politicians in the world, he has managed to broaden the Conservative Party in the UK without abandoning Thatcherism. He has embraced being “green” without embracing leftist socialist environmental policies. The UK Conservative Party is considered the “greener” party of the two major parties. They’re also percieved to have a better grasp of the issues facing every day Non-Londoner | Read More »

Gov. Sarah Palin’s advice to President Barack Obama.
From The Wall Street Journal: Tax Cuts and Fiscal Discipline By Sarah Palin Especially evident in these trying economic times is America’s need for affordable, abundant and secure energy. This means American energy resources developed through American ingenuity and produced by American workers. I applaud President Obama’s focus on alternative and renewable energy, and here in Alaska we’ve joined the effort: I have asked Alaskans | Read More »
The Ideal GOP Moderate.
I have said before, I hate the term “RINO.” I am a conservative, but I don’t like litmus tests because then it begs the question, were does one cease to be a conservative and become a RINO? That being said, I understand and agree with many of the frustrations of moderate Republicans like John McCain, but then I saw a video of a moderate I | Read More »
The Idea that Republicans Used to be Liberals…
..Is ridiculous and is linked to liberals arrogance regarding Civil Rights. The Republican Party has always had a conservative wing and a liberal wing, they even do today. Even though Benjamin Harrison, Teddy Roosevelt, and William Howard Taft were from a more liberal bend (and to call them ‘liberal’ is pushing it.) Abe Lincoln was certainly not a liberal. The reason they paint early Republicans | Read More »
Media Reaction to a Palin Presidency.
What if Sarah Palin became the first female President of the United States? How do you think the media would react to her inauguration? Seperating the historical significance from the people, it would be quite the historic moment as America would have effectively elected the first female President of the United States, just as Obama’s inauguration is a historical moment as he is the first | Read More »
CNN: Obama Inauguration “The Moment”
This is getting just plain amusing. CNN is now officially calling The Obama Inauguration “The Moment” What’s next? The Transfiguration? The Ascesion? You can even send your inauguration photos into “firstname.lastname@example.org” As I have said before, it’s okay to view this as a once-in-a-lifetime moment in history, it is. We’re swearing in the first African-American president after all. However this worship of Obama is just | Read More »
