I Have Big Shoes to Fill

Sir Isaac Newton once quipped, “If I have seen farther than others, it is because I have stood on the shoulders of giants who came before me.” I am (obviously) no Sir Isaac Newton, but as I prepare to take over the reigns of RedState, I have to acknowledge that this website wouldn’t exist as anything resembling the entity it currently is without the gigantic | Read More »

Hillary Will Grab your Guns, With or Without Congress’ Help

Hillary Clinton is terrible at being a politician. Back in 2008, Barack Obama realized that he needed to avoid alienating blue collar rust belt workers in order to win the general election, and he knew that many of them were concerned about his well earned reputation as a gun grabber.
