Newtown through the Prism of Social Conservatism
This post is an expansion of a post I did on my FaceBook, so some of it may be a little redundant, but I want to expound on this further. For those of you who don’t know my back ground: I am the father of three daughters, one of which turns two tomorrow. I am the uncle to 5 boys, and one girl. My wife | Read More »

Ms. Martha King: Will He Hear Me on November 3rd?
“Good morning, Ms. King.” “Hi, Baby. Jesus loves you!” “Yes, ma’am. Jesus loves you, too.” Ms. Martha King is one of God’s Beloved. She never changes. She greets everyone in the church as she slowly advances down the aisle on her cane. She looks good for seventy (70). In fact, she looks like a young fifty (50) year old woman. She is the type of | Read More »
It’s more than the economy, stupid.
Every poll on voter sentiment is saying the same thing – the principal concern for the electorate going into the 2010 election is the state of the economy and government’s relationship to it. Far and away, the economy is the biggest issuethe vast majority of voters would see the next Congress tackle with priority and competence. And conservative candidates are rightly putting attention and emphasis tothe application of well | Read More »

Remember when conservatives were winning?
Remember when conservatives were conservatives? In the Reagan years, the time of the only conservative American president in the modern era, one was a conservative, not a fiscon, neocon, socon, paleocon or any other kind of con. In fact, “con” was used by liberals as a term of contempt for conservatives, never by conservatives in self-reference. How times have changed. Some of the issues Ronald | Read More »
A Different Attempt at a Civil Discussion of the Social Issues
Staunch_Libertarian wrote a post earlier that attempted to discuss, in a civil fashion, social issues and the conservative movement. However, the attempt got off to a shaky start, when s/he stated: The three-legged stool is falling apart, and in my opinion the social conservatives are the most divisive leg. I wish to do two things here. One, I want to articulate why I don’t think | Read More »
A Republican Party For A Secular America
(This is a long diatribe, but I would appreciate anyone that takes the time to read it and get feedback.) One mistake I’m afraid too many Republicans are going to make is that the back-to-back defeats that were given to Republicans around the country was merely a result of Bush being unpopular, and that once he’s gone, we’ll be running the country once again. The | Read More »
Where are the Social Conservatives (Evangelical Christians)?
During the last election cycle, so many Social Conservatives (Evangelical Christians) stated how important Social Issues are. Now that the Mormon church is going under direct protest for their support of Marriage between a man and woman California Constitution, I see nothing on any this site in support of the Mormon church (Regardless of Religious differences) as they are being subject to protest in California | Read More »
Social Issues Are the Key to Winning the Blue States
For some time now Republicans have assumed that the key to winning over the blue states is to sell them on conservative economic policies and to run away from a conservative social and ethical agenda. Clearly that plan isn’t working. The success of Proposition 8 in massive Blue State California should finally indicate to Republicans that the key to success in Blue States is not | Read More »
The Wise and Foolish Builders
The conclusion or summary of “the greatest speech ever given”. 24″Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26But | Read More »
The faltering that occurred by the McCain campaign was the lack of focus on the top-level philosophical differention between himself and Obama. It would have made so much sense to explain how his life experience led to his philosophy and then briefly how that affects his policy mind-set (and his oppenent’s philosophy/policy. The focus on policy-only is backwards, easily mired, and too easy to argue | Read More »
Look in mirror, ask yourself …
*Here’s what John McCain and every Republican must repeat at every opportunity:Look in the mirror. Ask yourself. Will the Obama/Pelosi/Reed triumvirate increase your taxes and increase government spending on their social programs … regardless of what they are saying now to get elected? You know the answer. Don’t be fooled. Protect your well-being, and America’s. Vote McCain.
Social Security’s Beginning and Demise
hoot me an email and I will forward it to you. firstname.lastname@example.org it’s amazing. McCain should use this in his campaign.
‘m a nice lady sixty years old. I’m voting for John McCain because the alternative is Obama and I’d rather die first. But beware John McCain – I don’t take kindly after waiting this long to retire to hear you say you want to fix Social Security by making us wait longer to retire. I’m counting the days ’til I’m 62. Not because I’m lazy. | Read More »
Obama Ads Bogus: Big Surprise!
“Fast Eddie Rendell”, PA’s leading Democrat, is “warning” voters about John McCain’s economics plans, which include reducing Medicare and SS benefits. The Obama campaign is running ads touting the same McCain assault on these popular entitlements. Problem is, this allegations are false. FactCheck.Org asserts that there is nothing to these ads. By the by, FactCheck is hardly unbiased. They lean to the left, just enough | Read More »
