What Republicans Stand For
So what is it that Republicans stand for?
We stand for many things, to list them all out would be quite the task. But it all springs forth from our founding. We stand for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

@Kickstarter Declines To Fund @GosnellMovie… And Lies About It
On the heels of Brendan Eich being hounded out of the company he founded because his views on marriage comported with those which have been inherent in Western Civilization for three thousand years of recorded history, we have another example of the totalitarian, fascistic left using their power to suppress viewpoints they don’t agree with. Two years ago, abortionist Kermit Gosnell was sentenced to life | Read More »
Contrary to many conservatives, I hold Jeb Bush in high regard. That does not mean I agree with him on everything. I don’t. But he was an excellent governor. He has always been more intrinsically conservative than his brother. He relates well to the growing hispanic community in the nation. And he understands that education is a civil rights issue. I like him. In 2012, | Read More »

Time to Kiss RINO Vance McAllister Goodbye
One would think that we’d have the ability to elect conservative Republicans to R+15 districts in this day and age, especially in a special election scenario. Yet, last November, Vance McAllister managed to slip through the net and win the special election in Louisiana’s Fifth Congressional District. Electing conservatives is not just about finding people who will vote the right way. It is about finding | Read More »
A Story That Needed Telling
I have been very angry, though privately, with people who have attacked Ben Sasse for being friends with Mike Leavitt, the former Bush Secretary of Health and Human Services who sucks on Obamacare. I have been privy to private information. I’m very glad the Sasse campaign is now telling this story. On the day Ben Sasse was to meet his new boss, Mike Leavitt, Ben’s | Read More »
Insert Witty “War on Women” Paycheck Fairness Reference Here
President Obama’s latest pen and phone exercise is aimed at satisfying the Democrats demands for a “Paycheck Fairness Act.” Adept at playing politics for election year gains, the left is again touting the false premise that women only make $ 0.77 for every $1.00 a man does, creating an artificial divide where a government “fix” provides more problems rather than free-market solutions that actually work. | Read More »

Paying for your freedom
In the early stages of the Hobby Lobby religious liberty lawsuit against ObamaCare, the justices installed by Barack Obama, Sotomayor and Kagan, had a little conversation about how the owners of the company could easily get their right of conscience back, if they would just pay a nice fat surcharge for it. “Hobby Lobby would choose not to provide health insurance at all,” Justice Kagan | Read More »

*Promoted from the diaries. – Aaron* Your average government – anywhere in the world – has more resources at its disposal than just about any private company on the planet. So when a government sets its sites on making a private company’s life miserable – it almost always can. Because it can put the full weight of the Leviathan behind the push – and it | Read More »
Conservative leaders to Senate: Allow the market to function
Today a coalition of conservative leaders sent a letter to Chuck Grassley and Mike Lee, ranking members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and its Antirust subcommittee respectively.
The group of 11 signatories all came together to tell Senate Republicans their view of the role of government in the proposed Time Warner Cable/Comcast deal. They raise good points, and come to the correct conclusion that government needs to get out of the way.
