It Is Time For Marco Rubio To Join Ted Cruz For The Benefit Of Marco Rubio
One of the important tests of character in politics is the willingness to stay and fight when the going gets tough, to stand your ground and be loyal to your supporters and your cause, even when the odds are against you, even when people are telling you to cut bait and go home.

The Trump Coalition Is A Well-Laid Trap

He was asked about the ad that shows him using repeated profanity during the course of his rallies and questioned his ability to be presidential. Here’s how Trump responded: Trump: I think it’s better than any | Read More »
Bernie Sanders Upsets Hillary Clinton In Michigan
Even though the Democrats are running a Potemkin primary where the will of the voters is totally outweighed by the superdelegates representing the party elite, it is amusing watching Bernie Sanders rub Hillary Clinton’s nose in the sweet, sweet, poo of failure.

Stephen Moore’s Talk Of ‘Disenfranchising’ Trump Voters Is Absurd
One of the many great attributes our founding fathers had was their vision. They devised an electoral system that works for all people, doesn’t allow highly concentrated areas of the country to decide elections and devised systems to keep the country a strong republic, rather than becoming a banana republic. In most election years, primaries are boring, run of the mill affairs where the end | Read More »
Ted Cruz Accomplished Exactly What he Wanted to Yesterday
The news media today is pushing the headline about Trump winning Michigan and Mississippi because that’s what suits their desired outcome: Trump winning the Republican nomination.

Donald Trump Takes Big, Early Lead In Hawaii Caucus
With 13% reporting, Donald Trump is well in the lead in Hawaii about 45 minutes after the polls closed. As you can, while that is a BIG percentage lead, in real numbers it is only about 81 votes.
