I don’t want ‘em in my tent
The continuing GOP identity crisis Crisis? No crisis with me. A strong “conservative thinker”, James Carville, recently quipped; “I have an announcement to make. Ronald Reagan’s big tent just collapsed in Upstate New York. It no longer exists,” Democratic strategist James Carville said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” This he said following Dede Scozzafava pulling the ripcord on her campaign parachute, but I | Read More »
Yes, All Politics Is Local
Republicans are – rightly – crowing this morning about the GOP’s victories in the New Jersey Governor’s race and a battery of races in Virginia from the Governorship on down and what they say about the turn in the national mood, if not in a pro-Republican direction then at least in a direction that’s sufficiently hostile to the Democrats that voters in states won by | Read More »

Why This NJ Conservative is Voting for Christie
The GOP primary in NJ is coming up, and many of us here are just now making up our minds as to who our best and most conservative candidate for governor might be. If you listen to the commercials being run by Steve Lonegan, then you would have to conclude that Chris Christie is Karl Marx. If you listen to Christie’s commercials, you would think | Read More »
A handy checklist for people who wish to complain about the RiNOs in the GOP.
[UPDATE]: Here are couple more links for you: Rebuilding the GOP: The Committeeman Project Get Your STORC On I am not ordering anybody to follow this checklist. I’m not even going to nag about it. I am merely suggesting that you consider answering the questions on them before you go off on how the party isn’t listening to you. What is the name of your | Read More »
Limbaugh is Not Our Leader. He is Our Benchmark…
Limbaugh seems to be enjoying the ride as his sturdy little craft is being carried along by the swift current called the daily news cycles. And the fact that millions more are now tuning in to his talk show hasn’t hurt his Arbitron rating, either. Rush is being touted by friend and foe alike as the leader or de facto leader of either the Conservative Movement, | Read More »

Removing The Plank From Our Own Eye
So, I’m reading Limbaugh & Movement Conservatives: Successfully Distracted by Democrats by Darvin_Dowdy this evening and if you read his post you can likely guess my initial reaction to it… basically that it was a load of Bull…But then I started chewing on it a little…I’ve been thinking for a while that all the writing here about Obama and the Democrats and how they are | Read More »
Run, Abel, run!
We need news helicopters to find this guy and put the freeway chase on CNN. Moderate Republican Abel Maldonado, under pressure from Schwarzenegger and Democrats to provide the final vote to crush the people of California with huge tax increases, <a href=”http://www.sacbee.com/static/weblogs/capitolalertlatest/019637.html”>has fled the capitol in violation of a legislative lockdown</a>. Don’t squeeze the Abe!
Stay of execution for California taxpayers?
With this gang of crooks in Sacramento, I don’t want to get my hopes up. But we haven’t had a vote yet on the massive tax hikes that Schwarzenegger wants to impose on Californians. The leftists wanted a vote today. California already has the highest income taxes in the nation and the highest sales taxes in the nation. Schwarzenegger and the Democrats want to raise | Read More »
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 »
Republicans and RINOs… What to do????
I got into a short controversy with another poster this evening about the future of RINOs in the Republican Party. I contended that here at Redstate we (the members, not the Directors official position) feel as though RINOs are welcome in the Party but nowhere near leadership. He felt like we have been calling for them to be thrown into the lake of fire. So, | Read More »
Democrats – also RINOs – in Action OR The perils of washed-up action heroes and Kennedys hooking up
Facing a state budget crisis in July 2008, CA Gov. Arnold Shwarzenegger fired about 10,000 temporary and part-time workers and ordered the 200,000 permanent employees to be paid only the minimum wage of $6.55 per hour until the legislature passed a crisis-solving budget. A week later, however, the State Controller John Chiang pointed out that the state payroll records could not be changed to accomodate | Read More »
RINOs Are Real: Meet Charles Bannister and the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners
Meet Charles Banister. He is the Chairman of the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners in Gwinnett County, Georgia. Ostensibly, Charles Bannister and the bulk of Gwinnett County is Republican. Ostensibly. From the AJC: While neighboring counties encourage recycling, Gwinnett County’s new solid waste management ordinance puts teeth into it. The ordinance provides for a civil fine of $500 for violations, which includes those who fail | Read More »
My Challenge To All Red Staters and Front Pagers: The Way Back For Conservatives
I’ve had plans to do something to expose the clowns at the RNC that run this party and game the system to keep liberal Republicans in control of a center right party, but after reading this post ” No Wonder The GOP Is On It’s Knees ,” on the front page, I’ve decided move this project up and challenge all Red Staters to help lead | Read More »
