If you like your country you can keep your country: Part II, Democrats Seats
Democratic Senate Races 2014 There are a total of 21 Democratic Senate seats up for election. Next we’ll look at the states that were competitive in the 2012 Presidential Election. If the Republicans hold all their seats and turn 6 they will take control of the Senate. In part one I looked at those Democrat Seats that appear safe at this time. This article | Read More »
If you like your country you can keep it!
Democratic Senate Races 2014 There are a total of 21 Democratic Senate seats up for election. If the Republicans hold all their seats and turn 6 they will take control of the Senate. There are nine seats that were considered safely in Democratic hands: (as of 11-26-13) However, it is clear that the train wreck that is Obamacare that the Democrats are | Read More »
Support Matt Bevin in Kentucky against Mitch McConnell
If he’s going down, we should turn to someone with new fresh ideas. That may be the thinking of conservative voters in Kentucky when it comes to the Senate race and Mitch McConnell. McConnell can whine all he wants about being put in a primary race before he would have to face the formidable challenge from an attractive up and coming Kentucky Democrat but he | Read More »
Senate Elections 2014, PLEASE COMMENT
Here on Red State, I have been reading many comments about the Senate Elections in 2014. There seems to be the same indignation and disgust regarding the direction of our government now as there was back during the 2010 elections. Both elections are off year elections. Everyone should understand this year we need important victories to gain control of the Legislature. One thing that | Read More »
NSA Appropriate and Necessary Actions
I cannot believe how many people have taken the position that the actions of the NSA, tracking phone calls, e-mails and web searches are appropriate and necessary measures for national security. In a Breitbart article today it was pointed out that there are so many reasons why this is a bad idea. Forget they claim that attacks were thwarted based on these over-reaching intrusive programs. | Read More »
To the Obama Administration Holder is Just a Public Relations Problem
On Meet the Press on Sunday, Eric Holder is heard testifying before Congress denying any knowledge of a criminal prosecution of journalists. “With regard to the potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material, that is not something that…um, I’ve ever been involved with, or heard of, or think would be a wise policy.” The White House seems to be in full denial | Read More »
So, Whatever Happened to All that TARP Money?
I had no idea. Until I read this article in Rolling Stone I was buying into the fraud that the TARP program may have saved our nation. First, don’t get hung up on the obvious liberal montras that “It’s all Bush’s fault.” There is plenty of that in the article. Get beyond that however, and you will learn that Wall Street is the biggest recipient | Read More »
Social Issues Still Matter
Many on this site cannot understand the gay community. Many outside this site cannot understand the issues within the gay community. So, this diary is not written to address the issue of same-sex marriage, except that Mary Maitland said on Sunday that the issue of same sex marriage is insignificant when compared to the devastating impact of the single parent household in this country. Single | Read More »
COME ON DOWN!
I would like to take this opportunity to invite everyone in the death spiral states of California and New York to come to Florida. We have no state income tax and we have many programs to assist all you so called “greedy” successful entrepreneurs in your relocation to the Sunshine state. We have oranges, palm trees, tennis and golf, beautiful beaches, sunshine and a Republican | Read More »
Rick Santelli You Got to Love this Guy!
Rick Santelli for those who don’t know him is a commentator on the morning CNBC business news program Squawk on the Street. He is the one who termed the phrase the Tea Party when talking about protesting the big government and the high tax burdens placed on American businesses. This morning he was commenting on a WSJ op ed that brought up the hypocritical speakers | Read More »
Give Them What They Want!
I have heard and read all these comments about going off the fiscal cliff and how the Republicans should compromise. First, the fiscal cliff is not the right terminology (of course, it was created by the media). There is no cliff there are two factors: revenue and spending. The latest suggestion by our socialist president is that we should put in place the Bush tax | Read More »
Get On Board — Josh Mandel — Ohio’s Next Senator
It’s time to get on board. Everyone knows that the 2012 election is going to decide the fate of our great nation. Four more years of Obama and we will collapse into a heap of socialist malaise from which there is no recovery. All eyes have been focused on our Hope for Change in this White House Occupy Movement that has hijacked our capitalist republic. | Read More »
The Most Vulnerable
The words are thrown out there for all to hear as if it were some Oscar nominating category. “And the nominees for the most vulnerable in society are.” A Google search reveals the list. The IMF (International Monetary Fund) sets up an entire list of countries separated by continent that are the most vulnerable to economic crisis, and so, the search for the most vulnerable | Read More »

Romney will be attacked because of Bain Capital. As Rush Limbaugh said it will become the new Haliburton. Is what Romeny did at Bain wrong? No, it is the job of a CEO who has been delegated the job of reorganizing a company to cut expenses. The first cut is always in payroll. The real problem is that in this election the media has created | Read More »
What is wrong with these RNC idiots?
Apparently, it is okay to bash fellow Republicans but not the worst President this country has ever seen. Read this and weep. http://politicalwire.com/archives/2011/12/06/strategists_warn_republicans_on_attacking_obama.html#disqus_thread Who are these people that apparently are getting paid by the Republican party? It only goes to show that the tea party work is not finished. I thought that the Republican Party got the message last election to stand for conservative principals, | Read More »
Why MF Global matters.
MF Global has gone into bankruptcy because of the criminal acts of John Corzine. As a result the entire options industry is in turmoil and could fall apart. This is not a too big to fail scenario, this is just another example of croney capitalism. Croney capitalism doesn’t just take place when the govenment lends money to business at low rates that will never be | Read More »
Don’t Ask If You Don’t Know
I just find this very amusing. Contessa Brewer wanted so bad for a gotcha moment that she went to challenge Rep. Mo Brooks from AL that she challenged his economic credetials. Ooops! He graduated from Duke in three years with high honors in economics. See for yourself. (real clear politics) http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2011/07/20/msnbc_to_gop_congressman_do_you_have_a_degree_in_economics.html
Leadership in the New Congress
The most important thing that will happen when a split congress comes together in 2011 is the selection of leadership positions. It’s easy to shift your attention from the Senate and Congressional races that just concluded to the Presidential election of 2012. Not so fast! The most important vote that the new congress will begin with is the selection of leadership positions. With Mike Pence | Read More »
George was killed the other day.
George was killed the other day. Ambushed in his front yard, standing next to the woman he loved and the boy whom he called his own. One shot to the heart. This took place not in Iraq or a tough ghetto in Detroit or even in West Palm Beach. This murder took place in Palm Beach Gardens in a quiet suburban neighborhood made up of | Read More »
Go West America!
Down here in Florida we have a congressional race that epitomizes the battle in the fight to take back America. Ron Klein is the Democrat incumbant in C.D. 22. District 22 is a sliver of land that runs from Broward County (Ft. Lauderdale) to the Palm Beach County line. Ron Klein has held this seat for four years after defeating Republicam moderate E.Clay Shaw. Shaw | Read More »
I don’t hear anyone mention Kelly Ayotte
She defeated a candidate who attempted to paint her as a liberal and tried to destroy her by distorting the truth. That’s exactly the type of candidate I can’t stand. (See Mike Castle) When Rick Scott was successful in that tactic against a true conservative Republican, I was told to shut up and support him because he’s now our candidate. (I have to add, when | Read More »
It appears that Obama believes that his sagging economy needs a boost.
Of course, his ridiculous story line is that the stimulus is working, (just not as good as it should, because of George W. Bush.) No really, the economy is not really that bad. (never mind that unemployment is at nearly 10% nationally, and almost 15% in several states including Harry Reid’s, never mind that forclosures are continuing to flood the housing market at unsustainable rates.) | Read More »
Harry Reid is the Leader of Delusional Democrats
In the fight of his politcal life Harry Reid once again has stepped up to show he is truly the Democrat’s leader. In a show of that leadership he has broken with the President taking a position against the building of a mosque near ground zero in New York. In doing so Sharron Angle welcomed Harry to the correct side of the issue. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2010/08/17/religion_again_takes_center_stage_in_nevada_senate_race_106782.html However, Sharron | Read More »
Get off your buts…
This is the most important congressional election in our lifetime. Carl Rove (I am not a big fan of his) said today on Hanity that he projects a gain of 37 seats in the U.S. House this year. That would leave the Republicans as the minority party. http://innovation.cqpolitics.com/atlas/house2010_rr Congressional Quarterly has worse numbers (what else would you expect from CQ?) than that. But what is | Read More »
