As many of you know The House of Representatives passed a Continuing Resolution that funded the government, with the exception of Obamacare. The fight now belongs in the Senate. If Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn can keep 41 Republicans together to filibuster the CR until Harry Reid promises not to try to amend the Bill then we could see and up and down vote on | Read More »
The Water Cooler ~ Defund Obamacare, whether you wanted to or not.
I’ve heard enough naysaying and backbiting going towards Jim DeMint, Heritage Action, Tea Party Patriot, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and several others. Marco Rubio strangely has so far escaped unscathed even though he was one of the first along with Cruz and Lee to jump on board the Defund it Bandwagon. Now is not the time to get cold feet. And if you’ve been naysaying | Read More »
Why Virginia is so important.
Some my ask yourselves why the Virginia gubernatorial election is so important. Here are a few reasons why. 1) Virginia has become the key purple state. It’s Cook PVI is directly EVEN. All other purple states ( Colorado, Nevada, Ohio, Florida) are either pro-R or Pro-D. In order for a Republican to win in 2016 he almost surely has to win Virginia. Virginia is also | Read More »
The Water Cooler ~ Jennifer Rubin’s continued delinquency
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/wp/2013/08/28/why-rand-paul-should-never-ever-be-commander-in-chief/ You should read that opinion article by Jen Rubin, before commenting. Some redstate commenters may agree with her statement that Rand Paul should never be commander-in-chief. Some most certainly will not. That however is not my beef with this article but rather her labeling Ted Cruz an “isolationist.” Other than the fact he opposes U.S. intervention in Syria via Arming the Rebels ( Al | Read More »
Updated:Heritage Action Town Hall, Indianapolis
I had the privilege of attending the Heritage Action Town Hall in Indianapolis, Indiana. It was the first stop on their second leg of the Defund Obamacare tour. Senator Jim DeMint was there as was State Treasurer and former Senate Candidate Richard Mourdock. Three members of Congress were there. Randy Hultgren of Illinois, Marlin Stutzman of Indiana’s Third District, and Todd Rokita of Indiana’s Fourth | Read More »
Myra Adams’ Fuzzy Math
Myra Adams recently posted a Diary in which she lamented the inevitability of a Hillary Clinton victory in the Presidential Elections of 2016. During her diary she made several decent points if scewed a little too much by her personal despair. She however put forward a DNC talking point suggesting that the GOP only has a lock on 111 electoral votes, whereas the Democrat Party | Read More »
The Watercooler ~ 2014 News.
Recently its been discussed by various news outlets that Liz Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, is currently considering a run for Senate in Wyoming in 2014. The only problem is the fact incumbent Republican Senator Mike Enzi doesn’t look like he wants to retire. There is little reason to get rid of Enzi at least based on votes. He’s been fairly conservative, | Read More »
Someone needs to explain to this State Senator why her party has no input
I don’t know why but I periodically get emails from Indiana Democratic State Senator Karen Tallian. This most recent one was detailing how Tallian was helping to form this year’s Indiana State Budget. Now there were several problems I had with this, 1) Indiana Republicans have had a Supermajority in the State Senate for quite some time now and in 2010 Republicans gained a Majority in | Read More »
Emotion vs Reason
In the wake of the tragedy in Newtown, Conn. many states have suggested different gun measures. Vermont which has long been the most gun friendly state in the Union will probably begin passing legislation similar to neighboring New York unless the Liberals who have been allowed to dominate state politics for so long are held accountable by their constituents. Colorado has passed anti-gun legislation that | Read More »
The Choice Presented to Us
Many people have posted diaries on this site since the Presidential Election of 2012. Many people both within the Republican Party and without have discussed ways to reinvent the brand. Many of these people are dithering morons. We have a choice presented to us as Conservatives. This choice is not of our own choosing mainly because until now we have been content to vote for | Read More »
