Today, we Conservatives face a real dilemma. If we vote for the squishy RINOs that the establishment by hook and crook puts before us on the ballot, we perpetuate their belief that we are not serious. They believe that we have no choice but to vote for their tards. They believe that in the end we will show up in November. They believe that we will accept that the Senate is too important to vote against McConnell and Cochran. They believe that Cantor was just a one-time thing, and that they can recruit blacks to destroy quality Tea-Party candidates.

Eric Cantor lost because Americans are sick of the LIES on immigration
By now you may have heard that House Majority Leader, Forrest Gump…. excuse me, House Majority Leader, ERIC CANTOR (I get them confused), lost his bid to continue to work, in Virginia, for the Chamber of Commerce. In terms of “political earthquakes,” it’s just this side of Iowa, in the blink of an eye, becoming “Portal to the Pacific”—a freeway-buckling, radiation-releasing 10.0 on the Richter, | Read More »
Mitt Romney: A Severe Conservative Who Just Won’t Go Away
When conservative candidates lose their bid for elected office, they tend to fade away from public life and are never heard from again. But for Rockefeller Republicans, losing an election is evidently a resume enhancer for them to continue advising and interfering with Republican politics and policy. Mitt Romney ran as a “severely” conservative Republican in the primary. He pulverized his opponents with an expensive | Read More »
Time to Kiss RINO Vance McAllister Goodbye
One would think that we’d have the ability to elect conservative Republicans to R+15 districts in this day and age, especially in a special election scenario. Yet, last November, Vance McAllister managed to slip through the net and win the special election in Louisiana’s Fifth Congressional District. Electing conservatives is not just about finding people who will vote the right way. It is about finding | Read More »
Is it Time to Take the GOP Off Life Support?
This may not be very welcome on Red State in some corners, but I think this must be said. . You draw your own conclusions. When something in your life, for example: clothing, wears out to the point you can’t walk in public and be considered decently clothed or a car is beyond repair, you replace it, and throw out the old one, right? I | Read More »
Why The Hell The Complaining!? Let’s Actually Kick The RINOs Out!
All I’ve seen of late is doom about the GOP snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Taking immigration with amnesty component, sidling Obamacare in process etc. Okay fine enough, but can we change that for God’s sake? Daniel Horowitz and Erick Erickson to their credit actually try to make a difference by endorsing challengers like Matt Bevin in KY. I fully believe the GOP | Read More »
When conservatives unite and organize inside their local Party committee, good things can happen
By now you may have heard that on Saturday, January 11, 2014, the Maricopa County Republican Committee precinct committeemen, at the Committee’s biennial Mandatory Meeting, voted to approve a resolution censuring Arizona Sen. John McCain. Here’s local television coverage, including an interview with the precinct committeeman, Timothy Schwartz, who drafted the resolution: Watch the eight minutes or so of discussion by those precinct committeemen who | Read More »
Lamar Alexander Has No Conservative Ideals
The media is finally realizing that there is a growing wave of conservative grassroots support to throw out the failed Republican leaders who currently waste conservative seats in Washington. The latest flaccid Republican who is gaining a lot of attention is Senator Lamar Alexander. Earlier today, Senator Alexander wrote a letter in the Tennessean to his constituents stating, “I stay true to my conservative ideals.” | Read More »
Please help Arizonans help kill Obamacare
Originally published at Unified Patriots. The RINO (“Republican In Name Only”) Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and her RINO cohorts in the state legislature passed “Medicaid Expansion,” which is nothing more than implementation of Obamacare in Arizona. Despite having a Republican in the Governor’s office, and Republican majorities in the Arizona House and Senate, fifteen RINOs, and Brewer, joined with Democrats to ramrod this monstrous socialized | Read More »
Compromise, Senate GOP Style
Who could have predicted the outcome of the latest filibuster imbroglio in the Senate? Republicans paid the full ransom. What else is new? Once again, Mitch McConnell outsourced his leadership position to the McCain-Graham duo. He tapped them, along with Bob Corker and Roger Wicker – all from solid red states – to negotiate a compromise with Reid and Schumer over the filibuster and executive | Read More »
Senate Elections 2014, PLEASE COMMENT
Here on Red State, I have been reading many comments about the Senate Elections in 2014. There seems to be the same indignation and disgust regarding the direction of our government now as there was back during the 2010 elections. Both elections are off year elections. Everyone should understand this year we need important victories to gain control of the Legislature. One thing that | Read More »
Art Halvorson for Congress in Pennsylvania’s Ninth District
Earlier this year, I made a promise to the Red State community to leave no stone unturned in pursuit of committed conservative alternatives to the statists that saturate the ranks of the Republican Party. Well, through the Madison Project PAC, and on behalf of former Congressman Jim Ryun, I’m ready to announce the first endorsement of the cycle. We’re committed to replacing Bill Shuster with | Read More »
Tom Cole: The New John McCain of the House
Dear residents of southwest Oklahoma, There is only one liberal left in your district (OK-4- PVI=R+18), and he happens to be your representative in Congress. His name is Tom Cole. Maybe you should elect someone next year who will represent the heartland and challenge the status quo instead of serving as a conduit for the left to attack conservatives. Tom Cole, like most of the | Read More »
Maybe Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson Would Like to Retire
Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson embodies the ineffectiveness of the Republicans Party in promoting limited government. He represents one of the most conservative states, yet he uses his position as one of the 12 appropriations “Cardinals” to block any effort to cut spending. Simpson is an ardent supporter of earmarks. He is also a big supporter of government-run healthcare, and refuses to cut even small programs | Read More »
OK, it’s AFTER the election!
NOW, can we PLEASE discuss a third party? I have given up on the GOP even being reformable! John “never met a fight I wouldn’t run from” Boehner is all ready to make nice with Obama and work with him to back us away from the “fiscal cliff” that we wouldn’t be on the verge of if they had stood their ground when the tyrant | Read More »
