2010: Florida, 2012: Texas, 2014: . . . ?
Texas has brought liberty and constitutional conservatism to the United States Senate by electing Ted Cruz as its junior senator. It is a fabulous way to show that the Tea Party is alive and well, even if the GOP Establishment in DC and in state capitols across the country want to deny it. It also marks the second consecutive year that the Tea Party has | Read More »
Ted Cruz: The Case For Tea Party-Liberty Alliance
I know RedState is perhaps the most hostile conservative site to Ron Paul and much of his movement. But I also get the feeling that most of that hostility is towards Ron Paul himself, and as he rides off into the sunset the men he leaves behind seem to understand the nuances of conservative politics better than he does. People like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, | Read More »
Virginia Election Fraud: More Proof
I live in Virginia so I’m Facebook friends with a lot of Virginia politicos across the Commonwealth as well as contacts I’ve made through my volunteering and blogging for the last six years. One of the people I’m friends with on FB is Ben Marchi, who used to work for Americans for Prosperity and is now a high-ranking aid to the George Allen for Senate | Read More »
Romney VA Chairman Might Sue The State Party
The scuttlebutt around the Virginia blogosphere tonight is that Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling might sue the Republican Party of Virginia if the State Central Committee reverses itself and votes for a convention as the method of nomination for the 2013 statewide nominations. Bill Bolling also happens to be the chairman of the Mitt Romney campaign in Virginia. An important position in an important state in | Read More »
I was ready to bloviate on and on about the aparant recall victory tonight by Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch but instead I thought this fact was most telling and perhaps the biggest message out of this. The state motto of Wisconsin: ”Forward” Nothing else really needs to be said. (I posted this on my own personal blog as well)
Why Shouldn’t The Judiciary Be Considered For National Office?
So this is how my mind wonders . . . I love the veepstakes. I always do, because it is the first real sign we get to see in how a presidential candidate thinks and evaluates. Of course, maybe my thinking doesn’t always match with most folks but I was blown-away by Gov. Sarah Palin’s choice four years ago and I adore the women to | Read More »
Et Tu, Rick Perry?
Well this is nauseating . . . Seriously, Rick Perry? This guy claims to be the vanguard governor of the 10th Amendment and limited government, and then his own state offers up one of the very brightest lights of the new limited government movement in Ted Cruz and what does he do? Ugh. Is nothing sacred anymore?
First, I am fully aware that the super-majority of Red State readers and/or users not only dislike Rep. Ron Paul, they despise so many of his followers. And I understand the reasons why. But I’m here to tell you not to ignore us because I am one of them. I have also been a member (as Mason_Conservative) a member of both Redstate.org and Redstate.com since 2004. | Read More »
Mourdock’s Tea Party 2.0
No political cycle can be the same. The raw energy that drove the tea party to victory over victory in 2010 will never be replicated because things change and people learn from both mistakes and victories. Tactics change, candidates and campaigns evolve. The tea party movement of 2010 was such raw expression of political power that it push forward just as many flawed candidates (Angle, | Read More »
NXT: The Next Great Conservatives In The Era of Romney
I, like many conservatives, have begun the process of coming to terms with Mitt Romney’s nomination and the awareness that should the Governor win this election he will control the Republican Party for the next eight years. There is little that can be done now. Too many conservative electeds sat on their hands and refused to stand up. The ones who did where summarily demolished | Read More »
VA-SEN: E.W. Jackson Wants To Tea Party Like Its 2010
What? There are other Republican candidates for the US Senate in Virginia other than George Allen? You bet, and its not DC Senate staffer-turned tea partier Jamie Radtke. In fact, four candidates in total want to be the Republican candidate for the US Senate this June. One guy I want folks to know about is Bishop E.W. Jackson of Chesapeake. Who is E.W. Jackson? Well | Read More »
Tom Coburn for Vice-President
I have been racking my brain for some time now as to who the Republican Party and Mitt Romney should turn to for the vice-presidency. Now that Rick Santorum has dropped out, any pretense of “stop Romney” has ended. I am personally a supporter of Ron Paul and, though he may not be a favorite here on RedState (where I have been a member under | Read More »
