Thanks, Specialist Joe Cook!
I think with the election looming, now is a great time to remind everyone on RedState that WE are AMERICANS – and freedom is worth fighting for. Fight for McCain/Palin! Fight to win! “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to | Read More »
A 30-Minute Speech On The Stakes In The Presidential Election
I already posted this in the comments to Moe’s post on the Obama infomercial, but if you’d rather hear some real sense instead of Obama, sit back and watch the master at work – here he is on the October 27 before Election Day, a 53-year-old private citizen standing in to make the case his party’s presidential nominee had been trying and failing for months | Read More »
A Time for Choosing: even truer 44 years later
I spotted an allusion yesterday to a Ronald Reagan speech delivered in 1964 in support of Barry Goldwater. Unfortunately his message was not heeded that election, and one can trace a direct path from that time of choosing for the America to the time of choosing that voters face next Tuesday.
as Ronald Reagan would say, now is A Time For Choosing
On this day in 1964, Ronald Reagan spoke to a nationwide television audience on behalf of the Republican presidential nominee. Here are the words of Ronaldus Magnus: “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth. And this idea that government is beholden to the people, that it has no other source of power except | Read More »
On Brooks and Others
NRO points to an account of a discussion with David Brooks about a potential Barack Obama victory: During a chat with local press prior to a question-and-answer session with students at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts yesterday, Brooks went on to say that this election will be the end of a national Republican power arc that has been largely in place since the election of | Read More »
Sarah Palin and the Intelligence “Issue”. Yes, I’m mad.
If you think she’s dumb, then I encourage you to use your own smarts to build a time machine and forever send yourself to pre-1776 times; you’ll like it there. Throughout the general election campaign, I have been thoroughly disgusted with people who demonize Sarah Palin. Since the end of August, there has been no shortage of folks who choose to say that they “can’t | Read More »

No Longer A Matter Of Right & Left, This Is All About Right & Wrong !
I’m thoroughly frightened for the future existence of our country, along with all of us as a free nation and people. This is no longer about Right and Left. It’s about Right and Wrong. I deeply believe in our Declaration Of Independence, Constitution and Bill Of Rights as they are written. Our country is NOT an experiment. Our country is freedom of the individual through | Read More »
Political polling 101…
We live in the age of polling. It does not matter that using the word polling is actually a misnomer, the correct term is survey. We are surrounded by polling, pollsters, and other creatures that go bump in the night. Surveys are measurement devices. They are predictive devices, and should never be used to influence. They should also not be used as a substitute for | Read More »
The conservative case for ‘Socialism’
“We’re all socialists now.” “We have to defeat the socialist bailout.” “This is the end of free markets and the start of socialism.” On both sides of the ‘bailout’ recovery plan debate, the word socialism has come fast and freely. Sometimes used in sad irony, sometimes in bitter earnestness, the word always comes. However I think the word ‘socialist’ is being used too broadly now, | Read More »
The Ten Most Dangerous Words In The English Language
The ten most dangerous words in the English language are “Hi, I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.” -President Ronald Reagan
Deja Vu All Over Again
As we behold the disgusting attacks on John McCain and Sarah Palin it would be well to recall that it was 56 years ago this week that another Republican ticket was fighting against the same type of smear tactics. Charges that were first splashed across the pages of the New York Post were quickly picked up by the major media of the time. The fact | Read More »
“Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.”-President Ronald Wilson Reagan <p>The United States is rapidly moving towards the 2008 national elections, ushering in a new era in politics. However, before opening a new chapter, it is necessary to first close the chapter on the old book, and reflect | Read More »
Lady Reagan Has Arrived
It’s morning in America again and Lady Reagan has finally arrived! The Republican Party has finally found a candidate who hasn’t excited our base this much since Ronald Reagan. The parallels between the two candidates chronicling their rise from rural America based on simple beliefs that soccer moms and lifeguards can make a difference is the exact fuel that keeps the lights burning in Reagan’s | Read More »
Sarah Palin and Ronald Reagan
Dare I say it? Palin reminds me of Reagan in one critical respect: she thinks and acts like most Americans do or would like to, and she does it with a smile on her face. She’s the ultimate “one of us.” Whereas Hillary Clinton is a nagging harpy, Barack Obama is a sexually-suspect creature from another planet, and Joe Biden is a dirty old man. | Read More »
World Popularity vs. Obama: That’s Right, It Means NOTHING
A liberal says, “Whether we like it or not, we are part of the whole world, and we have to live with everybody else.” A historian says, “Whether they like it or not, we are part of the whole world, and everybody else has to live with us.” At first, I saw this post about the potential for the DOW to rise 1,000 points if | Read More »
