The guerilla Congress
I’ve never held public office but I have always been civically active, even before I moved to the USA. As Bill Quick wrote [UPDATE: The post I linked to is by martinra, a Daily Pundit contributor. Apparently I am not aware of ALL the internet traditions regarding group blogs especially when bylines are at the end of an article. Yes, I have read Daily Pundit | Read More »
MNGOP calling for help for Norm Coleman in his fight for HIS Senate Seat!
Promoted by Erick. So I am not a huge Norm Coleman fan….yeah, yeah he is a Republican fighting in a Blue State….whatever. So let me start anew, Norm Coleman NEEDS your help in fighting the Democrats who are attempting to STEAL a Senate seat they LOST and they are despicable for it….for that reason and that reason ALONE I ask you all to support getting | Read More »
Why Sarah Palin Matters.
Since Election Day, an increasing number of conservatives and Republicans have written here and on other sites and publications of the need for a new direction. I believe that for our party to move into a new century, it needs to do so decisively and without hesitation. I believe that Governor Sarah Palin is the person to do that. Whether indifferent or openly hostile towards | Read More »
If You Don’t Know Where You’ve Been, You Don’t Know Where You’re Headed
Fighting amongst themselves like little school girls fighting over the same boy they both happen to like. Using Governor Palin as the scapegoat for all the ills the GOP suffered in this election. Boy the party of Eisenhower and Lincoln just don’t get it. I don’t know how many times I can point out the obvious before the so called “leaders” of this crumbling party | Read More »
A moment of naiveté
Have historical cycles turned faster? I’ve lived a short twenty-eight years and it seems, since waking memory, that time flies forward faster and faster. It seems patterns are repeating too quickly. Or is it merely that in the environment of information overload, patterns are just too easy to see? Last night on FxN Dick Morris started to issue a warning to us, and perhaps to | Read More »
When We First Start Selling
It was a while back in my chronological adulthood. I was under the delusion that I was cut out for professional sales. That delusion was a psychological adjustment to the fact that I had graduated from college amidst the 1991 recession, didn’t have credentials that would set the world afire, and couldn’t find much work outside the world of full commission sales. So I took | Read More »
Draft Chip Saltsman for RNC Chair
It’s a time of rebuilding for the Republic and our party in specific. The American people have let their voice resound quite loudly; they have rejected the status quo. As a party we must do the same if we wish to ensure the future of our party. It is easy to sit here and be an arm chair quarterback, and say that we need to | Read More »
The long view of things.
True students—not dilletantes—of history have an approach to the wheel of time that few people embroiled in current events do. The further back in time one gazes, the less important smalle details become, but the expression of patterns gets stronger. In my first post I introduced the Postulate of Cyclical Politics: The root of Conservative demise is hypocrisy. The root of Liberal demise is excess. | Read More »
Request for Proposal: Major Turnaround and Re-organization
This is a look at tactical turnaround strategies for the GOP from the perspective of a management consultant and private equity professional. In today’s marketplace, the turnaround business is growing quickly. Many companies are facing re-organization processes, financial and debt restructuring, and full-scale operational turnarounds, in efforts to implement efficiencies and stay alive through the downturn. The Republican Party must also face a turnaround, one | Read More »
First post on RS
No offense to Ruffini, et.al. but I don’t think my opinions there would matter much. Too RNC-insider-ish. That and I’ve been lurking here for four years, and boy do I miss Tac, a lot. So. McCain lost the election, yes? It’s a bummer, and reading the folks all over the place is an even bigger bummer. Finger-pointing has already come up to a shrill level, | Read More »
Lets Discuss Where Our Party Goes From Here! Upward and Onward. All Thoughts Welcome!
Can anyone let me know when does redistricting occur before 10 elections or after? I believe there are many worry signs for our party in this election and the first is the continuation of Republican Party brand name being destroyed in many of these blue states. How many Republicans represent districts won by Kerry/Obama now? Young in FL, Gerlach in PA, Kirk IL, and Reichert | Read More »
DONT GIVE UP THE SHIP (part 1)
-Three states voted to ban gay marriage, including Florida, where 60% of the vote was required, and California, which is notoriously liberal. Gay marriage bans are now 30-for-30 out of our fifty states. This supports two major theses, the first of which is that we are still a center-right country. There was much talk on the networks last night about a “tectonic shift” in the | Read More »

Cleaning House – Why it Must be Done
With all due respect to Leader Boehner, Whip Blunt, Sen. McConnell and Sen. Kyl; things have got to change. You have all done your best, with what you were given and we are all grateful for that. But things must change. You see, despite your efforts things have gotten worse. The situation is now dire, we can not handle further loses of this nature. It | Read More »
Conservatives are mad as ….
I came across a couple of columns on the Internet that explain what happened last night. One is from Hot Air and the other is from the American Issues project. They both say things so well that I really cannot think of much to add to them. In the interest of fair use, I cannot post them in their entirety but I STRONGLY urge everyone | Read More »
The GOP Needs Young Grassroots Leadership
I’m running for Congress in the state of California in 2014. I’ll be the exact age eligible to run for such office. I’m running not only to restore some credibility to the GOP, but to also expand our party with young people and moderates who I’ve met in college and elsewhere. My own experience as a humanitarian allowed me to settle on a narrative of | Read More »
