A Conservative View of Dave Camp’s Tax Reform Bill
Yesterday, Congressman Dave Camp (R-MI), the House Ways Committee Chairman, released his draft proposal for comprehensive tax reform. The mere proposition of positive tax reform is a welcome development. Even though we clearly lack the votes to enact any tax reform until at least 2017, it is still important to stand on bold colors and offer an alternative vision to the current socialist path from | Read More »
Democrat Alex Sink Wants Immigrants To Clean Rooms and Plant Flowers
Here again is another example of media bias. Very few have bothered to report on Alex Sink, the Democrats’ nominee for Congress in Florida, saying what she said. In explaining the need for immigration reform, Alex Sink — a seasoned political veteran mind you — actually said we need more immigrants to clean hotel rooms and landscape yards. If a Republican said this, the press corps | Read More »
Mail Bag: Cancel Your Own Goram Subscription
The Left loves sending us little love letters like this to show that they care: From: johnvoet Subject: unsubscribe me Date: February 26, 2014 at 8:38:11 PM MST To: “firstname.lastname@example.org” <email@example.com> Just to set you straight.

Cory Gardner In For Senate, Ken Buck Switches To House Run
News broke this afternoon of a rumor that Rep. Cory Gardner of Colorado’s 4th Congressional District would not seek reelection for his House seat and would instead enter the U.S. Senate race to challenge Mark Udall in November. We won’t bury the lede on this, this isn’t just a rumor. It’s a fact. Additionally, Ken Buck will exit the Senate race, endorse Gardner, and then | Read More »
Hey! Twenty three Democratic Senators can do minimum wage math!
Shocking. Why have they hidden their light under a bushel for all these years? Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Tuesday delayed action on legislation raising the minimum wage, the centerpiece of the Democrats’ 2014 agenda. [snip] Reid has not yet unified his caucus on the issue, which is a constant in the Democrats’ election-year playbook. Of the 55 senators who caucus with the Democrats, | Read More »
Does President Obama Think Sandwiches & Taxes are the Same Thing?
This can’t go unanswered. Last week Kentucky Senatorial candidate Matt Bevin got in hot water for some comments he made about gay marriage. “If it’s all right to have same-sex marriages, why not define a marriage — because at the end of the day a lot of this ends up being taxes and who can visit who in the hospital and there’s other repressions and | Read More »

Democrats Exploiting Veterans to Grow Government
Unlike many modern-day functions of the federal government, caring for our wounded warriors is a core responsibility. But as is the case with other government programs, liberals think that doubling down on a woefully inadequate VA system and throwing more money at the problem will improve care for veterans. And similar to most other big government initiatives, Democrats are now using a highly-respected group of | Read More »
The National Republican Senatorial Committee Attacks the GOP
The past two days the staff at the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) have pushed news articles meant to tear down Milton Wolf, a doctor from Kansas and a candidate in the GOP Senate primary. You may be asking yourself why an official GOP organization is doing this, but the reason is very simple. The quickest way to find yourself the target of the NRSC’s | Read More »
The Great Establishment Deception on Winning Back Senate
The unambiguous strategy of the GOP establishment this year has been to avoid any and all confrontation in the hopes of gliding into a Senate majority in 2015. To that end, they have capitulated on all of the major leverage points, passed a number of Democrat spending bills, and are in the process of pushing “small-ball” legislation in the House so as not to rock | Read More »
Support Dr. Milton Wolf
Pat Roberts is Kansas’s Senator. He does not live in Kansas. His home is in Virginia. He drives a car with a Virginia license plate. His wife is a Virginia realtor. His house in Kansas is rented out to someone. He says when he goes to Kansas, which is less and less frequent, that he sleeps in a friend’s recliner. Pat Roberts has a challenger | Read More »
Hagel, Defense, And You!
Chuck Hagel has unveiled a new plan for the Defense Department to reduce costs by downsizing and reshaping the military into something more efficient. At the very moment he mentioned downsizing, something interesting happened. All of his words, to most conservatives, became the noise made by teachers in the Charlie Brown cartoons. And, while cuts to the military are definitely a bad idea, there is | Read More »
EXCLUSIVE: Emails Show SC Attorney General Concerned About Absentee Voter Compliance
Last week, the Super PAC of which I am a board member, Carolina Conservatives United, announced our intention to push for South Carolina to come into compliance with existing federal election law as it pertains to absentee ballots and the amount of time overseas troops & citizens have to get their votes counted.

Is Your GOP Member Representing You or John Boehner?
Ask yourself this question: is there any Democrat that represents a solid blue congressional district who is not fully committed to advancing the progressive agenda? Is there any Democrat from deep blue territory who rubber stamps the conservative agenda? Of course not. Democrats utilize the liberal areas of the country to promote their beliefs. Yet, there are dozens of Republicans who hail from conservative districts | Read More »
Draft Bob Beauprez for Colorado Governor
There are seven people running for the Republican nomination for Governor of Colorado. None of the seven have shown an ability to unite the Colorado GOP. None have shown the ability to win the tough race. None have shown the ability to raise the significant money they will need for a very tough race. None even seem to have a very strong, statewide grassroots network | Read More »
