With Three Ongoing Wars What Ever Happened to the Anti-War Movement?

    By Myra Adams Despite the jubilation over the death of Osama Bin Laden, our nation’s overstretched and under-appreciated military will continue to be actively engaged in three undeclared wars — Iraq, Afghanistan, and now Libya. Perhaps Bin Laden’s demise will usher in new questions for President Obama about the present and future of our international entanglements. In the meantime while casualties and costs continue to | Read More »

    Take what we’re given, or institute a draft?

    The majority of posts here at RedState and general “chatter” in conservative/Republican circles betrays a keen grasp of the obvious – we’re not jazzed about our crop of ’12 presidential contenders.  As a sweeping generalization, we’ll say that there are several candidates that most of us “could live with,” a couple that are highly polarizing, and another couple that are highly unacceptable to the majority | Read More »

    Draft Suggestion: Ken Cuccinelli for VA-SEN

    From the diaries by Erick In 2012, the people of Virginia will have the opportunity to replace their sitting US Senator, Jim Webb. Webb is a Democrat who had served in the Reagan Administration as his Secretary of the Navy. He wasn’t in that role for less than a year. Because he refused to reduce the size of the Navy, so he resigned. In 1979, | Read More »

    Draft Suggestion: Mark Schweiker for PA-SEN

    In 2012, single term US Senator Bob Casey will be up for reelection. The pro-life Democrat who, after failing in a bid for Governor, decided to run for US Senate against Rick Santorum in a heavily Democratic year. Santorum was a controversial Republican who spouted out at the mouth specifically about social issues (ex. comparing homosexuality to beastiality) who running for reelection in a bad | Read More »

    Draft Suggestion: Tom Foley for CT-SEN

    In 2012, Joe Lieberman will be up for reelection. Lieberman is currently an independent and has toyed with running as an Independent, Democrat, or Republican for US Senate. Frankly, besides his view on the War on Terrorism and his endorsement of McCain in 2008, Lieberman’s platform does not fit in with the mainstream Republican Party. Reportedly Democratic Congressman Chris Murphy is considering a bid and | Read More »

    Draft John Bolton 2012

    I’m going to start the movement right now. Former United Nations Ambassador is an articulate spokesman for conservatism. He’s got a great presence and an even better mustache. I say we draft him for 2012. No, not for President – here in Maryland for US Senate. Bolton is currently a resident of Bethesda, Maryland. He’s lived in Maryland for a good portion of his life, | Read More »

    Congress Then and Now

    As the saying goes, the more things change, the more they stay the same. When we look at some of the folks populating Congress today, we can take some small comfort in the fact that today’s bunch is likely neither better nor worse than past Congresses. I give you this assessment of Congress, taken from an editorial entitled ‘Total War Postponed’ in the July 4, | Read More »

    The Draft is BACK

    Dear Leader’s central cause for his agenda has passed the House of Representatives. His Civilian Service programs have moved forward in more feel good and misnamed legislation called Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act commonly referred to as the GIVE Act. The United States Senate version is called the Serve America Act. The House Bill is H.R. 1388, the Senate is S. 277. On March | Read More »

    Don’t know much about history…

    To paraphrase Homer Simpson, “Academics. Is there anything they don’t know?” Apparently math, logic, and history would fall into that category if the op-ed by Danielle Allen, the UPS Foundation [ed note: huh? wtf?] professor of social science at the improbably named Institute for Advanced Study is any indication. Allen’s article is a barely regurgitated potpourri of misused of data, conflating anecdote with data, and | Read More »

    BHO, Kenya, Islamic jihad, genocide and compulsory draft

    The pieces of the puzzle are coming together, and the picture is terrifying. The bottom line is that BHO is a Muslim, funded by Arabs. If elected, it will be time to pay back those foreigners who donated so many millions to his campaign. American youth are at great risk, yet they are lining up to vote for this Marxist!

    On “President Obama” and his Reinstatement of the Selective Services Draft

    Last week Joe Biden made public a statement regarding an Obama presidency being “tested” within months, and that Mr. Obama will make a “decision” that would be very unpopular with Americans. During the final presidential debate on Oct. 15, 2008, Senator Obama stated that he supported granting a $4000 college tuition credit in exchange for service to our country. Now, for those of you that | Read More »
