Why the ‘Anybody-but-Mitt’ attitude is going to bring us….Mitt
I am firmly in the camp of ‘Anybody but Mitt’. However, my preferred candidate is not in the race so I am left squarely undecided. I am researching and listening to everyone in the field, yes everyone. I haven’t made up my mind yet, and won’t until the primary gets to Georgia. My concern is that we are all so apoplectic about NOT choosing Mitt | Read More »

Global Warming Advocates Running Scared: Regulate Baby…Regulate!!! Jim Gschwind PHD The Despondent Correspondent In anticipation of a conservative victory November 2012, governmental agencies involved in “Green projects” and regulatory affairs are scurrying about frantically attempting to impose as many regulations on business and the American people as possible before any funding is pulled by an incoming administration. This has been especially noticeable | Read More »
2012: A time to fight
No, I’m not advocating violence. I’m just observing the existence of a conflict between 2 completely irreconcilable ideas (and the people who hold them) that’s been growing for the past 100 years in America. On one hand is the simple idea that “by the sweat of your face you will eat bread, till you return to the ground”. Or stated only a bit more pleasantly, | Read More »
Newt and the Media: What Republicans Can Learn
First, let me make clear that this post has nothing to do with who should be the nominee. Newt Gingrich is now the clear front-runner for the nomination. There are several aspects that led to his rise (including the downfall of Cain and the limited alternatives), but the main reason is his focus on our main opponent in 2012 (and it’s not Barack Obama). That | Read More »
What if Tim Pawlenty were still in the race?
Tim Pawlenty has got to be kicking himself right now. Since the primary started, the race has been between Romney and the Anti-Romney. From Bachmann to Perry to Cain, there has been a rising star only to fall back to earth. But Pawlenty never had his chance to see his star rise, because he exited so early. It is true that he bungled some things | Read More »
Endorcing Newt Gingrich — Why I support him to be the Next President
I am not affiliated in any way with any of the candidates, but have decided that I think Newt would do the best job as president. I will start by saying that what I am looking for in a president is as follows: 1. I want someone who can and will set us on a course to balance the budget, will improve the economy, and | Read More »
Newt Gingrich:Cashing In on His Political Connections
“You can fool all of the people some of the time, and you can fool some of the people all of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time!” –Abraham Lincoln No Republican candidate running in the 2012 Presidential Primary is a bigger member of the Republican political establishment than Newt Gingrich. He represents everything that the elite Republican | Read More »

We Need Competent Warriors: A message to party leaders and primary voters
The 2012 election, more than any in recent memory, will be about choosing between two distinct paths for our country’s future. The choices are clear: push forward with the current growth of statism or revert back to our conservative principles. There is no doubt that electing officials that will reverse our current path and fight for conservative principles is essential to our future. If we | Read More »
One Chance That a President Mitt Romney Wouldn’t Be So Bad
I cannot support Mitt Romney in this coming GOP primary. The one reason why can be summed up simply as this: he flip flops. Romney has more flip flops than a California beachfront. Mitt has been proven a man without anchor adrift in a sea of issues that push him and pull him with the tides. Even worse, maybe, is that he jumps from one | Read More »
Cain/Gingrich Debate Open Thread
Post all musings and comments here for the Cain/Gingrich debate.
A true conservative candidate. If not now, when?
Let me preface by saying that some people support Mitt Romney because they would rather him be President than any other candidate. I disagree with those people, but at least they are supporting the guy that they want to win. I can’t fault them for that. This diary is about those who actually want a more reliable and conservative candidate but who are supporting Romney | Read More »
New Jersey Teachers Union Bullies Members to Support “Anti-Bullying” Democrat Legislator
By Matt Rooney | Cross-Posted at The Save Jersey Blog The hypocrisy of the teachers union leadership knows no bounds, Save Jerseyans. As you may or may not know, the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) operates out of a couple dozen regional offices. From here, they attempt to “organize” member-volunteers for pro-union candidates and causes. It’s usually easy to do since they raise roughly $130,000,000 per year from | Read More »
9-9-9 and The Fair Tax
As you may know I am a huge supporter of the Fair Tax. The Fair Tax simplifies the tax system by removing and replacing the current tax code with a 23% national sales tax. It gets rid of the IRS, and allows people to live without worry of filing their taxes every year. It removes all loopholes, encourages the lower income to save money, and | Read More »
Ohio’s stalled voter ID law- vote on Tuesday
In March the Ohio House passed HB 159, which introduced reasonable reforms to secure Ohio’s election process, one of which was to require a photo ID in order to vote in person. Parts of the bill were passed into law in June. However, the GOP-controlled senate and Republican Secretary of State, Jon Husted, balked at the photo ID requirement and it’s been held up in | Read More »
