21 Thoughts and Observations on the Election
1) Obama won by running a divisive wedge issues-based campaign in the right locations, in conjunction with a killer ground game. He ran up huge margins with blacks in VA and OH. He played the amnesty card with Hispanics in CO, NV, and FL. He played the war on women card with white women in NH, WI, and IO. But wedge issues, such as immigration | Read More »
American Exceptionalism and The Conservative Battle
(Originally posted on my personal blog – http://nsagraduate.wordpress.com/) Two brief thoughts: 1. I believe in American Exceptionalism. What made America “exceptional” in the past was her willingness to stand for the principles of liberty and free enterprise while acknowledging that it is the God of the Bible who gives us all good things. For these reasons we sing “God Bless America”, say “In God We Trust” | Read More »
Why We Lost and What We Can Do
OK everyone is looking for the answers and looking to place blame! Here it is in a nutshell! 1. Message and Strategy a. We will fix the economy but we did not discuss HOW! b. We will reduce/simplify the tax code but did not discuss HOW! c. We nominated and believed in a blue/purple state state Republican to carry our mantle. d. We failed to | Read More »
So Romney is the only guy who can beat BHO?
For all those who claimed a moderate was the way to go and Romney was the ONLY candidate in the field who could beat Obama I will now entertain your excuses for why the only guy who could beat Jimmy Carter Jr. failed to do so…………….
Today, Finally, Obama is on the Ballot. VOTE.
Today is the day you’ve been waiting YEARS for. Obama is on the ballot. VOTE Remember how you felt when Mr Bipartisanship said “I won.” Today, Obama is on the ballot. VOTE. Recall the guy who said he was a deficit-cutter trying to spend his way out of debt. Today, Obama is on the ballot. VOTE. Remember the town halls expressing anger at Obamacare and | Read More »
As if you needed another reason:
That’s not Samuel L. Jackson on set in Die Hard III. Remember the billy-club bearing New Black Panthers that were the vanguard of democracy in Philadelphia in 2008? Well, the boys are back, albeit in a kinder, gentler 2012 version. No visible weapons, and this fellow by all accounts had a bit of a sunnier disposition. Still, a dude in paramilitary attire affiliated with a | Read More »
My Election Predictions
Tomorrow is the big election (finally!), and we’re at that point where everything’s been said and re-said, analyzed and turned over and examined again. And what are we being told? “It’s too close to call.” Really? Enthusiasm is sky-high for Republicans. Mitt Romney is packing people in the Red Rocks in Colorado and got 20,000 people to turn out in the cold in Pennsylvania. Early voting | Read More »
Polling Puts Romney Up in OH, even in PA
Mystical polling genius Sate Nilver has obtained Romney campaign internal polling, signed a non-disclosure agreement, utilized a magical, mystical, sophisticated statistical analysis system (known to some colloquially as “Microsoft Excel”), and has uncovered that Romney is up in Ohio, and dead even in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. Nilver immediately disclosed these findings to the media, particularly the Daily Mail because, claims Nilver, they are the paper | Read More »
USA 2012 is not +11 D
National and state polls continue to show the future ex-President with a slight lead in key areas. A few points up in OH, VA, WI, NH, and others pointing to Obama running away in PA, MI, and IA. Nationally he maintains a 2-3 point lead in most polls. Governor Romney has flipped the map, but not enough it would appear. Looks like we get four | Read More »

An Open Letter to My Kids
Tomorrow night I’m going to bed knowing I have done everything I can to save this country. I’ve made phone calls, walked in parades, contributed more than I could afford to conservative candidates, walked streets I never knew to try to convince people what was happening and how they needed to vote. Did I wake up late to the reality of liberalism? Yes. But I’m not going down quietly–without a fight. Grandpa was a proud Democrat when the Democrats had morals–before they made a far-left turn. He died a staunch Conservative and I will do the same.
After Tuesday, I don’t know what the forecast will be for our liberty. I sincerely doubt America can withstand another four years of untethered liberalism. It is my fervent prayer that you wake to the reality before all your liberties are gone and that you begin to act every day to keep or regain them. That will mean beginning to read more, getting involved locally, and knowing for what and why you are voting (and reading my emails once in awhile)!

I’m Not Voting for Mitt and Other Tommyrot
There is every possibility this could irritate some. At least I hope so. Have you said to either yourself or to others that you are not voting for MItt Romney? That you won’t vote for him because he is not your ideal of a Republican candidate? If so, get over it. Listen, I love Reagan as much as anyone. He got my very first Presidential | Read More »
Benjamin Hodge interview with Paul Ibbetson – Anti-business attitudes of Topeka paper, Democrat Anthony Hensley
The Topeka Capital-Journal joined Democratic Senate leader Anthony Hensley in: Promoting tax and spend policies that damage businesses Insulting a major business after it leaves town Stating clearly that they expect businesses to ask their approval and permission before making decisions Proposing anti-business “solutions” — picking winners and losers by taking money from most businesses, and giving “incentives” to a small number of businesses Sending | Read More »

Last Call – Obama’s buying
With less than a week to go in the campaign before the vast majority of Americans vote for the next President, one would have to wonder what the Obama campaign will do in a desperate attempt to save his re-election chances. A few examples: Women The Democrats have continually pounded their chests about how Romney (and all other GOP candidates) is wrong for women. He | Read More »
Take a moment to enjoy anti-Romney people’s comments
I work at a newspaper that belongs to a media group who recently endorsed Mitt Romney and is running editorials saying such in all its papers. Granted, I’m a lowly sports editor, but those of you who read what I post often enough know politics is my favorite sport. Once one of these goes in the paper, we then put it online. Luckily, some Obama | Read More »
A Difficult Situation.
This year, as in any election year, there is much being said about abortion. I was adopted at birth in Corpus Christi, Texas, and if abortion were as prevalent in 1959 as it is today, I would probably not be here to write this. That being said, we have to determine whether we are a nation of laws, or a nation of ‘feel good’ legislation. | Read More »
