An Open Letter to Gov. Perry
Dear Governor Perry, As you proceed from New Hampshire to visit the state of South Carolina and beyond, there will be increasing calls for you to drop out of the presidential election. As a resident of Georgia, I can tell you there are many of us who would like to vote for you on our own primary date in March. We cannot vote for you | Read More »
The Battle For The Republican Party
Much has been made online and within the MSM about the conservative vs liberal (and moderate) wings/candidates of the Republican party during this Presidential GOP primary election. On one side – the liberal or Massachusetts Moderate – we have Mitt Romney. On the other side, we have the rest trying to pit themselves as the poster child for conservatism (and the word “conservative” seems to | Read More »

Last night, the Iowa Caucus held on to its reputation as an electoral circus with wildly unpredictable results, while politicos throughout the nation were captivated by its demonstration of rural backwardness bringing ever stranger results. Until the last percent | Read More »

Florida’s “2nd in the South” Primary will matter most
The Florida GOP may have lost the battle against South Carolina for which state will be the first primary in the South, but the indecisiveness of Republican voters, not being able to back one candidate, seems to be making Florida’s “2nd in the South” primary the final word in the GOP nomination race. No offense to my home state of South Carolina, but | Read More »
Its time to Unite!
I say whoever comes out ahead in the evangelical group needs to be the one to unite us all. If its Romney, so be it, but today Iowa will decide and I say that today is also the day that most of us should decide. Divide and conquer was Napolean’s strategy and we’re doing it to ourselves! Obama couldn’t have done it better himself. So | Read More »
19th century slavery created the GOP, will 21st century slavery (and a feckless 2012 field) be its demise?
Will 2012 bring an end to the Republican Party? It would only be fitting that a party formed almost 160 years ago on the basis of stopping the expansion of slavery would be destroyed by its support of the modern day expansion of slavery of a different sort. That is exactly where we stand. The GOP was formed in 1854 in reaction to the passage | Read More »
Rick Perry for Commander in Chief
As I have stated before, I am a full-spectrum conservative. I believe in common-sense, Constitutional conservatism based on the “three-legged stool” – fiscal, social, and national defense conservatism. All three of those legs are important, but my heart is especially with the national defense concerns. Many long time Redstate readers know me from the posts I started writing on my first deployment. Some of you | Read More »
Why Be Against When We Can Be For A Candidate?
Do we have to be against Romney in order to be for Newt Gingrich? Do we have to smear Newt to show our support for Mitt Romney? Am I the only one who understands the very basic concept of supporting the one who you personally feel best represents your values both politically and morally? Now don’t get me wrong there are such things as valid | 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 »
For the Right Reasons
Do you know people run for public office? How many people who decide to throw their hats in the ring, risk time with friends and family, risk their private lives, their past record, and their credibility do so for the right reasons? I believe for every three people who run for office on a sincere platform, seven do so simply because they like the idea | Read More »
Tea Party vs. the GOP establishment – Begging for a brokered convention…
For much of the last three years, I, like so many others who were so despondent after the election of 2008, assumed that the election of 2012 was finally going to provide the American people with a real choice of philosophies. On the one side you have President Obama and the progressive / fascist utopia. (Fascist in the economic sense – where private property remains, | Read More »

“Paging Dr. Moreau, We need a vivisection of the entire GOP Field of Candidates for POTUS!” Or do we?
H.G. Wells provided a masterpiece on stretching the limits of societal judgements in the interest of science when he wrote The Island of Dr. Moreau. The treatise by Wells concerning the morality of whether a human can become some demi-God/creator describes a science-fiction process of “vivisection” where animals are given human forms through surgery, and rehabilitation. Wells, a social reformer, was a very didactic writer, | Read More »
Why I Think That Rick Perry Can Win: Results Over Rhetoric
Apoll conducted about three weeks ago put Rick Perry over Obama 46% to 42% in Wisconsin while Obama beats every other candidate by at least 4 points. The sample size was only 500 (I’d really love more current numbers with a larger sample size), but this got me wondering: Why does Wisconsin, a moderate blue state at best (Obama carried it 56% to 44% over | Read More »
The Art of War, and the Media’s Narrative .. Deception
Lets get this straight.. Our candidate, meaning the GOP nominee for President must be (according to the media). Eloquent Gaffe Free Compassionate Experienced Able to Relate to the people This “media” is of course the same “mainstream media” that overwhelmingly supported Obama in 2008. So by using the media’s own template for the GOP field, lets see how Obama stacks up shall we.. Is Obama | Read More »
