Ron Paul is the path to GOP victory in 2012 and beyond
It was a beautiful day here in Minnesota yesterday; we don’t often have temps in the 50s in January. I was at a GOP caucus planning meeting for my local BPOU yesterday evening, and we were taking the opportunity to discuss our Presidential candidates. We’ve got a Newt supporter, a Santorum supporter, some people who didn’t say a preference, and I’m a long time Paul | Read More »
Socialism rampant in the GOP
Conservative Republicans are known for their abhorrence of socialism. Why are we against a single payer health care system? Because that’s SOCIALISM. Why are we against bailouts? Because that’s SOCIALISM. Most Republicans recognize socialism as being anathema to our principled world view. So why in the world do so many Republicans turn a blind eye to socialized education? Socialized education presents the following | Read More »
Open Letter to America’s Creditors
Open Letter to America’s Creditors The United States Federal Government is now over $14 Trillion in debt, with more borrowing on the way. These treasuries you’ve been purchasing provide the funds to create one of the most bloated, wasteful, and intrusive governments the world has ever seen. Americans by the millions are becoming aware of the situation and, like me, are exerting an ever-growing political influence. | Read More »
How to reduce government spending in one easy step
How to reduce government spending (and fix the economy) in one easy step: 1) “NO DEAL”. Representative Boehner and the Republicans in Congress hold a press conference and state the following: “The debt ceiling was put in place for a reason. Instead of mindlessly increasing it, we are going to require ‘President’ Obama to do his job and prioritize remittances. The American people can | Read More »
Unless you’ve been in a coma for the past 20 years, you’re probably aware of the fact that the government of the United States is out of control. The chains of the Constitution have been disregarded for so long, they’re widely regarded as a joke. Government this big and this intrusive is not cheap. Tyranny is always expensive. In 1980 we sent Ronald Reagan to | Read More »
The default bogeyman
So Obama and little Timmy are threatening a default if they don’t get more borrowing authority. Really? Payments on the Federal Debt were $164 Billion in 2010. Federal revenue was $2.381 Trillion. So what is it they’re talking about defaulting on? Certainly they will have enough tax revenue to cover payments to our creditors. Unless there’s malfeasance on the part of the Obama regime (which there | Read More »
With Wisconsin Democrat senators on the lam, I see a great opportunity for budding bounty hunters! Someone needs to set up a central website like www.wheresdemcheeseheads.com for info sharing. All we need is just one WI Dem senator dragged across the border. Where’s Dog when you need him? Remember, Big Sis says, “If you see something, say something!”
Democrats don’t hate the rich
I keep hearing people say that Democrats hate the rich. It seems true, but is actually false; here’s why. It has to do with semantics. Consider the three classes: lower/poor, middle, upper/rich. To get from one class to the other you have to have a considerable income. Income is what makes you upwardly mobile. If you are middle class, in order to get to the | Read More »
KT McFarland reveals lack of critical thinking skills
KT McFarland just lost her marbles on foxnews.com. Let’s be honest. No patriotic American likes the idea of those responsible for our national security being incapable of keeping secrets. That being said, KT’s proposed strategy for dealing with the wikileaks trainwreck is remarkably nonsensical. “Mr. Assange and his fellow hackers are terrorists and should be prosecuted as such.” Terrorists? Really? When’s the last time Mr. Assange | Read More »
MN Democrats unable to cheat enough to prevent a recount in the Governor election
It appears the Minnesota Governor election is going into a recount, automatically triggered by less than half a percentage point difference in the tally. The fraud attempted by Democrats this cycle wasn’t quite enough to prevent the recount. SOS Mark Ritchie – aka Acorn Boy – has experience in jerry-rigging recounts from when he engineered the great senate heist for Al Franken, but we also | Read More »
Reduce Reuse Recycle: a new paradigm for government
It is my belief that reasonable people will come to conservative conclusions once they engage their common sense chip. However, sometimes the debate must be presented in terms people are accustomed to hearing. For decades liberals have hounded us to “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” in an effort to get us to lower our standard of living. Not that any of those three Rs are bad, so | Read More »
The liberal altar of bipartisanship is no longer convenient
I just wasted 15 minutes of my time reading the Minneapolis Star Tribune’s story on the upcoming vote. Oddly, there wasn’t a word breathed about the bipartisan nature of the opposition to the “health care reform” bill. Apparently, the liberal altar of bipartisanship is no longer convenient. I’m sure once there’s bipartisan support for something bad, where the evil AND the stupid can work together, | Read More »
Hannity thinks Bachmann is a DEMOCRAT?
Now, I’m not a big Hannity fan, but even I am surprised at the lack of attention to “detail” at the hannity.com site. Of course, this is a pretty big detail. Apparently the folks over at the hannity.com political map think that Michele Bachmann is a Democrat. http://www.hannity.com/politicians/michele_bachmann/12345/ We’ve tried to alert them to the error, but to no avail. Mr. Hannity, I can assure | Read More »
Drug use in the White House?
From FoxNews: “More people voted [in the Massachusetts Senate election] to express their support for Barack Obama than to oppose him,” Gibbs said. I present you the following equation: (The knowledge that people voted for Scott Brown + ______________) = imagined support for Obama. Feel free to speculate on the answer. Given Obama’s admitted cocaine use during his younger years, I know one possible answer. | Read More »
Norm Coleman to jump into the MN Gov primary race?
To quote Marty Siefert when it comes to the field of Minnesota Gubernatorial Primary candidates, “The Republicans have an embarrassment of wealth; all the Democrats have is embarrassment.” (This after Margaret Anderson Kelliher, the leading Democrat, was found to be cheating on campaign contributions). Indeed, there are several very strong candidates for Governor on the Republican side: Tom Emmer (my favorite), Marty Siefert, Pat Anderson, | Read More »
The obvious choice of beer for a summit
Foxnews has been making something of the choice of beer for the “summit” with Obama, Gates, and Crowley. First of all, I would HIGHLY encourage Officer Crowley to back out. Right. Now. Apparently they’re going to be out of view of the media, violating safety rule #5: “Never hang out with a radical narcissistic liberal unless you’re in a public area in full view of lots of | Read More »
Americans are not cattle
Having lived all my life in the Midwest, my thoughts can’t help but shift to the dairy farm when considering single payer health care. While cows graze contentedly in the verdant pastures, not a one of them worries about her health care. A cow doesn’t have to be concerned about whether she’ll be able to afford to have treatment for mastitis or whether she’ll get immunizations | Read More »
As everyone knows by now, Iowa’s supreme court has flipped it’s collective bird to the people of Iowa by ruling that their law about marriage being between a man and a woman is “unconstitutional”. Here in Minnesota we’re watching the judicial lawlessness in Iowa with a nervous eye. Our Senate Democrats have managed to keep the “Marriage Amendment” off the ballot, so we are just as vulnerable to | Read More »
The future of credit: a workable system.
The current and ongoing collapse of fiat currency and the debt monster it spawns should inspire us all to find a new solutions for a workable monetary system. I suggest to you that the current banking system is corrupt from the ground up, and has been for ages. My solution is quite simple: It should be illegal to lend other people’s money. “That’s Crazy!” you may | Read More »
Ron Paul: Fiscal Conservative… Really.
Really. And not just that… he’s one of the few members of congress who actually takes his Constitutional duties seriously. If you actually take time to watch the 5 minute video referenced by bs in the above link, you’ll see what I mean. It’s sort of odd, in a way… when did our conservative Republican Party buy into the Keynesian economic theory? How is it | Read More »
