Why THIS Libertarian Is Voting For Mitt Romney

Why THIS Libertarian Is Voting For Mitt Romney

In the last few weeks, there’s been quite a battle in political circles between Romney supporters and Johnson supporters. I realize this may be a bit late to fully capitalize on the meme, but, oh, well. I’ve made no bones about being a Romney supporter (though reluctantly, at first). To set out why, I have to […]

Martin/Zimmerman: Fuel For The Democrat Attack Machine

Recently, the Huffington Post Enquirer ran a post regarding the shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida, entitled Trayvon Martin Case: ‘Stand Your Ground’ Law At Center Of Shooting. The unwritten implication of this article is that enhanced self-defense laws, such as Florida’s, grant protection to murderers. The left have already begun spinning this killing into […]

SB1: Indiana’s “No Illegal Police Entry” Bill

Last night, the Indiana General Assembly passed Senate Bill 1, which, once signed into law, will resolve a nearly year-long deprivation of the civil rights of residents of the State of Indiana. Readers who have followed me for the last year will be aware of my previous “Outrage In Indiana” posts on this very subject. For those who haven’t, let […]

Rick Santorum: The Least Patriotic Republican

Super Tuesday results are in. Mitt Romney has won six of the ten states, and is the clear frontrunner now more than ever. The question Republican voters must ask is this: Why are we still slogging through this primary season? The answer to that question is simple: Rick Santorum. As I noted in this post, […]

In Defense of Sheriff Paul Babeu

This weekend, Pinal County, AZ Sheriff Paul Babeu resigned his post as Mitt Romney’s Arizona campaign manager amid revelations about his private life, and allegations of personal misconduct. These allegations may also endanger Babeu’s prospects for a U.S. Congress seat. The question of the hour, then, is this: Are the allegations true? Did he, a […]

Live Together or Die Alone

Amid the myriad of CPAC 2012 posts currently filling the blogosphere, I would like to offer my own reflections on the event, and the powerful lesson of which I was reminded. It is rare for me to speak personally in my political writings. I am much more comfortable with the objective distance of facts and principles and analysis […]

Clint Eastwood: Spokesman For The New Detroit

Much ado has been made about the Super Bowl Clint Eastwood/Chrysler commercial, expressing the theme that Detroit, and America at large, is making a comeback. In some conservative circles, “Dirty Harry” has been criticized as shilling for President Obama. But after reading this article by Mara Gay of The Daily, I’m convinced that the tough-guy libertarian may […]

Green Failures

Here are a few of the latest companies to join the growing list of ”green” “sustainable energy” failures that have been supported by the current Administration’s deficit “stimulus” spending. All this financing has been done using your tax dollars…well, actually tax dollars to be paid in the future by your grandchildren and great grandchildren to […]

Since Perry's Out, I'm With Romney

As reported, Gov. Rick Perry has dropped out of the presidential race. Which candidate will I support now? Backstory: Originally, I favored Mitch Daniels- a solid fiscal conservative who pushed for, and got, a balanced budget multiple years in a row, an increase in Indiana’s credit rating to AAA for the first time ever; and […]

Eight Democrats Arrested For Ballot Fraud In Troy NY

Troy, NY city councilman Gary Galuski became the eigth Democrat implicated by Rensselaer County officials in connection with the 2009 Working Families Party primary ballot fraud case. New York’s Working Families Party, which is closely connected with ACORN and SEIU, frequently co-endorses Democratic candidates for public office. Erick Erickson at RedState has extensively covered WFP. (Photo credit Matt H. Wade […]

Ron Paul Isn't Dead Yet

Yesterday I described the need to capitalize on Ron Paul’s following among younger voters. Despite predictions that his campaign is now on the decline, I don’t think we should count him out just yet. Paul’s success to date has been attributed- rightly or wrongly- to the fact that Iowa allows same-day registration, and New Hampshire […]

Rick Perry Can't Debate? (VIDEO)

This weekend, Rick Perry did a phenomenal job in back-to-back debates in New Hampshire. David Gregory asked a typically loaded liberal question of Jon Huntsman: Name three spending cuts which will cause people “pain”. Then Gregory asked Perry an audience question: “Is it un-American for Americans to feel relieved when the government helps them?”. Perry took […]

Can Rick Perry Still Win?

Tuesday night, Governor Rick Perry announced, after a disappointing showing in the Iowa caucuses, that he was returning to Texas to reevaluate his campaign. Wednesday morning, he tweeted that he was on his way to South Carolina. The question of the moment for Perry supporters is this: Can Perry still win? If the behavior of […]

Where Do We Stand In Iowa?

Folks, it’s time to break out the crystal ball and predict what will happen in Iowa tomorrow. (Just kidding.) While there’s no clear leader in Iowa, Mitt Romney might be considered such, since he has led the polls the most consistently. However, the horse-trading nature of Iowa’s process means that Romney has no guarantee of […]

Romney On Guns: Like Father, Like Son

Mitt Romney says he “supports the Second Amendment”. And, based on a casual glance at his record, you could almost believe him. As governor of Massachusetts, he signed some laws to protect hunters and clarified some language in the state’s gun laws. On the other hand, he signed an “assault weapons” ban. As Mitt has said, he was […]
