If you start on this diary entry, please finish it. I solicit feedback from converts and dissenters alike. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute | Read More »
Bring it Home
**This is the exact message the McCain campaign must drive home Socialism and big government. Vs. Private Property rights with small government. I would recommend Mr.McCain read a few Ayn Rand novels and expose the terrible methodology of Collectivism for what it is. I don’t know if Mr. Obama’s life at Harvard was due to a scholarship or an affirmative action program of some sort. | Read More »
A Common Thread – What They All Share
What do Liberals want? What did/does Bill Ayers want? What does Rev. Wright want? What does ACORN want? What do Democrats want? What do most of Obama’s supporters want? What does Obama himself want? In a word Change. They have all….every single one of says they want to change America. They do not like the America of the past that was founded upon the conservative | Read More »
WHAT’S HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY?
It is shocking how so many people are enamored by form over substance. Where’s the beef? Such a Hollywood mentality is so shallow. Pretty boys and smooth talkers don’t impress me. However the battle scars of dedicated sacrificial service and the wrinkles of mature wisdom do! I enjoy Hollywood entertainment. But we need much more than entertainment! We are in a national/global crisis. The artificial | Read More »
I am no longer referring to Obama as Senator Obama. John McCain hit the nail on the head when he called him Senator Government. I want a T-shirt that says Senator Government on it and a slash through it. Then a caption like “Let’s not spread the wealth around”.
OK, America—Who are You Really Mad at?
Jay Cost wrote in an excellent column that John McCain is a victim of the mortgage crisis. I believe that Cost is right, because the night before the mortgage crisis hit, Senator McCain was beating Senator Obama by an average of 3-5 points in the polls. What I can deduce from those previous polls is that when people originally compared McCain to Obama—pre-mortgage crisis—the majority | Read More »

ACORN Inst. needs your ‘charitable’ contribution
My congressman will be hearing about this today. Will yours? With ACORN voter fraud investigations in the offing, coast-to-coast, I find it rather apalling that it’s “Institute” is an authorized CFC charity. This only helps ACORN raise money at one end of its (purposely) confusing enterprise, to promote it’s registration and sub-prime mortgage relief (bailout) efforts at the other end. Donate to ACORN Institute ACORN | Read More »
College homework. I require some redstate assistance.
My most recent government class (Senior level under-grad class) this past Thursday we were discussing the evolution of presidential powers this past century. I won’t go in to too much detail, but once we got on the topic of Bush, as you can imagine ears perked, faces went rigid, and the smile on my teacher’s face stretched an extra three inches as she beemed with | Read More »
Let’s cut the B.S. on the bailout. The proposed government bailout is based on two government promises of maybe: 1) The taxpayer might recover some of the 700 billion someday; 2) Once banks bad debt is purchased with taxpayer money, the banks might loan some of it back to the people who paid the banks’ debt in the first place. Read the complete article, Bailout | Read More »
How about a REDSTATE ROUNDTABLE on the bailout and credit crisis
It’s not so much that I think the RedState Directors have a better knowledge than the rest of us on this issue but that they seem to be the only ones who can access the RedState servers consistently and reliably enough to make detailed and cogent arguments in support of their disparate opinions. Besides, in fairness to all of them, they have all made very | Read More »
Now that you bring it up
John McCain has a 88% rating from Council for Citizens Against Government Waste, while Barack Obama limps to a paltry 18%. Nancy Pelosi beats Obama with an embarassing 14%. Clinton & Biden got zero ratings! It’s a wonder these folks keep getting re-elected. Take a look at the voting records. This is what McCain must hammer home! The US must stop spending or we will | Read More »
Barry’s Going to Make Government Cool Again
Does this mean that Barry is going to hand out Che Guevara t-shirts at his campaign rallies? Cool is obviously not synonymous with intelligence e.g. Matt Damon, but then again Barry doesn’t even know how many states there are and he has a chance of becoming president. Maybe government will be cool again (when was government ever cool?) but I sure hope not. I think | Read More »
McCain Vs. the Vietnamese
I read a very interesting article in the WSJ today describing the former captors of John McCain and their support for his assent to the presidency. He fought the Vietnamese up front and personal from a cell. He suffered physically and mentally at the hands of the then enemy but was an early supporter of normalization with our former foes. McCain played a crucial role | Read More »
After The McCain Win, What Next?
John McCain is virtually guaranteed to win. But is he guaranteed to make a lasting and significant contribution to the conservative cause?
McCain vs Obama: Part I – The Promise of America
With all said and done and the rhetoric being ratcheted up, I thought it would be a good idea to compare both Presidential nomination acceptance speeches side by side. To see what each man said during his speech. I took both men’s speeches, analyzed the content and broke them down into six parts: The Promise of America, Today’s Challenges Facing Americans, Leadership Experience, Their Promise | Read More »
