Then and Now: California Assemblyman Anthony Adams
California Assemblyman Anthony Adams, 11/25/08: “It is absurd for Democrat to refuse to live within their means and expect California’s taxpayers to pick up the tab for their poor spending choices,” said Adams. “California’s families have been hit hard by the economic downturn and are struggling to balance their own family’s budget. With the holiday season approaching, Californians shouldn’t have to choose between putting presents | Read More »
The Ideal GOP Moderate.
I have said before, I hate the term “RINO.” I am a conservative, but I don’t like litmus tests because then it begs the question, were does one cease to be a conservative and become a RINO? That being said, I understand and agree with many of the frustrations of moderate Republicans like John McCain, but then I saw a video of a moderate I | Read More »
The 11th Commandment, Conservatives, and Moderates.
“Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.” -President Ronald Reagan. President Reagan never spoke poorly about any Republican. He was always loyal to the party, no matter how poorly some of the more liberal Republicans treated President Reagan, he was always civil and even heaped praise on them and their leadership. When President Ford won the Republican nomination in 1976, then Governor Reagan | Read More »
Senator McCain being “McCain.” Offers another strong case for term limits
Go ahead and say it…Maverick. Will there be any primary opposition for his Senate reelection bid? If so, please inform me. I plan on donating my life’s savings towards his or her campaign. In a surprising rebuke to the warriors who fought for him through tough times, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Sunday sided with President-elect Barack Obama and scolded the Republican National Committee for | Read More »
I Hate and I Mean HATE The “RINO” Label.
Since when did we become the party of ideological purity and personal destruction? I am discouraged when I see good conservatives tag Republicans with the “RINO” label, in fact, it makes me fear that we will fall into the same trap the Democrats did throughout the first half of this decade. In 2006, Joe Lieberman was effectively tossed out of the Democrats. This proud liberal | Read More »
Kathleen Parker Take Off the Blindfold
People who read Kathleen Parker’s continued attacks on the religious conservatives in the Republican party should see it for what it is: an ongoing effort to topple the party by destroying its foundation.
Senator Jim DeMint promotes merit over senority
For too long the Republicans in the Senate have clung to the senority system. This is the kind of system that results in giving people like Ted Stevens of Alaska the chairmanship of the Senate Approrpriations Committee and Arlen Specter the chairmanship of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Thankfully, Senator Jim DeMint, one of the most fiscally conservative US Senators, is asking Mitch McConnell for a | Read More »
A New Call to Action
I am sure many of you who subscribe to Human Events Mailing have seen this, but I wanted to get out the link to show the RINO’s that we are not willing to let go of our party…let them try to fight us! Join Michael Reagan in this fight by signing up here
Powell’s Endorsement, from a military point of view
That’s about how shocking General Powell’s endorsement of Barack Obama is, least it should be. Senator Lieberman, a moderate Democrat, endorsed Senator McCain and we all know how much of a staunch conservative Republican he is. In 1995, Colin Powell was seen, again as a potential running mate for Senator Bob Dole. However, Bob Dole would respond to the idea with the following (quoting the | Read More »
The Republican I’ll Root against This Fall
That does it! Never mind that Hillary Rodham Clinton was the least Marxian of the major Democratic candidates in the primaries. Never mind that their nominee has quite literally voted in favor of retroactive abortions. I’ve now found a major GOP candidate for office that I would take great pleasure in being able to vote against.
