We Must Fight, Sir!
By Patrick Henry and Tom Tillison When one exercises due diligence and takes a good hard, honest look at the state of this nation’s affairs, it can bring about a sobering realization.

Update on Mel Martinez Resignation: Jim Smith, Come on Down!
Word on the street in Tallahassee is that Governor Crist intends to appoint Jim Smith as Mel Martinez’s replacement. Smith, a former Attorney General, is now a lobbyist. He’s also the Chairman of FSU. How fitting.

Crist Is Not The Future Of The Republican Party
True, he is popular in the liberal cities in the southeast and along I-4. That is because the Liberals have no one to challenge him and he is a liberal in many respects. But the rest of us in the state (strongly conservative) are seeing the softer side of Charlie reveal itself (along with the liberal ideas and milquetoast leadership). He actually pulled back from | Read More »
