California: a bastion of sanity
Two quick news stories in California crossed my field of view in the past few days which I found, er, interesting, to say the least. First, if you ever happen to visit California and I happen to be in a car crash while you’re present, do not under any circumstances move me out of the car if you think the car might explode. If you | Read More »
F.A. Hayek on Meet The Press in 1975 – A Must Listen!
One of my favorite posters, John, over at Swords Crossed posted a diary with a link to a recording of Hayek on a 1975 Meet The Press Show, so I wanted you all to have the chance to hear it, amazing how relevant his words are today! Peter Boettk Writes; This is F.A. Hayek in 1975 on Meet the Press. If you have never listened | Read More »
“Fiscal Conservatives” Unclear On The Concept
The Washington Post, looking at the GOP rout in the Northeast, sells the hoary old myth that there is a large and coherent “fiscally conservative and socially liberal” faction that got ignored by the national party: What happened, say some current and former Republican leaders, is that the national party moved away from the issues of fiscal conservatism, small government and lower taxes. As the | Read More »
Thoughts on “Early Voting” and The “Reform” we need not the “Change” (Progressiveness toward Socialism) ObamaBinBiden promise
Server time-out errors have me paranoid about loosing text/responses, so I’ve been putting some various/random thoughts into a txt file… Rather than “perfect” (yeah right, you know what I mean) them, I thought I’d throw them out for you to help me (and you) better/fully develop the thoughts further… Feel free to focus on the serious questions/issues or the silly ones [had to add this | Read More »

CONTRACT WITH AMERICA part two?
Some around RS have been talking about the direction and methods the RNC should be using to get thi ngs corrected. Frankly, I think the notion of another Contract With America will not fly because it was obvious that the notions and principles of the Contract were abandoned by the Party. When President Bush took office in 2000 and we had control, the Contract should | Read More »

Dem’s always ignore this Law (and we all pay)
We’ve all seen it, and you can make use of this Diary to recap the countless occurrences of, when Democrats do not think through the Legislation, Regulations, etc… that they push through and impose on Americans. They, without regard to reasoned objections, rule with the old 60’s philosophy of “If it Feels Good, Do It.” Anything that perpetuates Government (especially when it’s Liberals that will | Read More »

evidence of character
Senato McCain has run a smart campaign where it comes to spending. He should expose Senator Obama’s spending habits and how this is evidence of Senator Obama’s economic character. Almost buying his way into the white house. It’s easy when you are spending someone else’s money (or contributions). Don’t be suprised if this continues if Senator Obama is elected president.
Lets wish Obama’s grandma well, but campaign must go on
Lets wish Obama’s grandma well as the AP reports However, this is an important election and the campaign must go on. McCain’s policies will spur business growth and job growth all around, considering the US has one the highest business taxes. At a time of economic crisis and global competition, american small AND medium AND large businesses need to be able to compete better and | Read More »
Want to See what a Democratic Super-Majority will Bring?
No offense intended to Redstaters from Michigan, but your state is one of the most confusing (if not the most confusing) in the nation. We constantly hear about how horrible the economy in Michigan is, yet there is no transfer of power from the Democratic party mostly responsible to the Republican party. The fact that incompetent Democrats like Jennifer Granholm get elected on a promise | Read More »
Obama and a Democratic Controlled Congress
Outside of being the most liberal, big government senator whose economic policies will wreck this country, the scariest thing about Obama is that he will actually be able to get many things done given the makeup of the House and Senate. Someone in the media needs to take a look at what has happened when ANY party has controlled both Congress and the Presidency. Someone | Read More »
Mortgagecare Part D (UPDATED)
(UPDATE: Apologies for the double posting. And no, it’s not because of the “new RedState”–it’s due to my own limited competence.) Am I the only conservative who felt a sickening feeling when McCain proposed socializing America’s “troubled mortgages”?

Democratic Definition of Fiscal Responsibility
Lisa Johnson is a Democrat who is running for the Utah State House of Representatives. On her website, Mrs. Johnson has a list of issues that she feels are important. One of which is fiscal responsibility that she feels involve three key components: wisely managing resources, preparing for the future, and avoiding debt. The Obama-Biden ticket should talk with Mrs. Johnson. During the presidential debate, | Read More »
The bailout is just the beginning – what do we do when it all starts to unravel?
There’s a lot of ire over the bailout, and if it’s the appropriate response (and if a response is really needed in the first place). I’ve seen good arguments on multiple sides as to the issues, problems, and potential solutions (with various “smart important people” weighing in). But this crisis is in part dealing with panic – the market is not acting rationally (either due | Read More »
