Kabuki Theater: Is the GOP “Controlled Opposition”?


During the entire torturous game of shadow puppets that the Republican Party and the Democrat Party played in the run-up to the disastrous fiscal cliff deal, every single conservative knew how it would play out. The president would make some outrageous demands, pretend to compromise, and get basically everything he wanted from an effectively complicit Republican Party. This play has ...

Jim DeMint – Change in Washington Can Only Come From the Outside


Great conservatives like Marco Rubio, Mike Lee and Rand Paul can only be topped with a Senate majority. If so, it won’t be with Senator DeMint as he moves to the Heritage Foundation. The true fight in engaging Washington and politics in general is from the outside. …you cannot change Washington from the inside. You can only change it from ...

The Lonely Position of Neutral

Screen Shot 2012-12-12 at 2.29.52 AM

I hate raising taxes.  I find high tax rates immoral.  However, we lost the election.  An increase in revenue is inevitable.  What’s perverse about this whole episode is that if we fall off the cliff – Democrats will get everything they want. They’ll get their tax increases, their revenue, and defense cuts.  They would complete their decade-long project of ending ...

In Treatment

Screen Shot 2012-12-12 at 2.04.42 AM

Yes, Republicans are in treatment after their catastrophic loss last November.  We kept our majority in the House due to gerrymandering, and we lost two seats in the Senate.  Romney’s loss was bad, but our inability to gain seats in the Senate was ignominious.  Democrats were tasked with defending twenty-three senate seats, and twelve of those races had eminently beatable ...

Conservatives Need to Kick GOP, Democrats Over Cliff – Replace with Tea Partiers


It’s time conservatives think about pushing the GOP machine over the cliff they are helping Democrats hurl America over and replace them with Tea Party conservative leaders. The moderate RINOs are nothing more than Democrats in cheap Republican clothing. Seriously people, is John Boehner a Republican, is he a conservative, or a fence-straddling Democrat who sticks his cigarette in the ...

Speaker Boehner – What Are You Doing Up There?

Screen Shot 2012-12-05 at 2.37.23 AM

Is it revenge of the squishy Republicans?  It sure isn’t the reaffirmation of conservatism within the Republican Party.  On December 4, Matthew Boyle at Breitbart reported that the House GOP had begun purging conservatives from various committees.  In a time when Republicans need strong, principled conservatives to thwart the aggressive expansion of the state under Obama, Speaker Boehner and company inanely decide ...

A “Quick and Dirty” Look at Obama’s Tax The Rich Plan

I couldn’t resist. I saw the following article and I just had to write about it:  Yes, I know that in the post-2012 election era, my blog will naturally pivot to more philosophical writings, but some economic analyses will come up here and there. This is an example of one of these economic analyses. As many readers of my blog know, ...

Obama, GOP Throw Their Dogs In The Ring

Screen Shot 2012-12-04 at 2.48.19 PM

I’m sure a lot of you exuded similar reactions to the president’s laughable fiscal proposal to prevent the nation from going over the cliff.  He asked for $50 billion in additional stimulus and $1.6 trillion in tax hikes “as part of any ‘fiscal cliff’ deal,” according to CNBC.  In all: The plan calls for $1.6 trillion in new tax revenue ...

In the final analysis, in those key swing states, Mitt Romney lost the election by about 300,000 votes. Not very many considering the size of the country and total number of voters. And yet, a loss… Now as the GOP begins its look forward to 2014 and ’16 there are many in the party who think it’s time for change. ...

How Falling Off The Fiscal Cliff Impacts You

Screen Shot 2012-11-20 at 4.42.34 PM

I’ll say it again, Democrats want to go off the fiscal cliff.  They’ll get their tax increases – $600 billion dollars worth– their revenue increases, and cuts to defense, which has been a goal of theirs for the past ten years.  Goodbye Bush tax cuts, Hello Obama tax hikes.  With the fledgling coalition of ‘cliff jumpers’ led by Sen. Patty ...

6 Vital Battlefronts in the Fight for America

American Flag

America’s devastating loss to Obama last week has prompted a lot of discussion about how the Republican Party moves forward from here. The talk of dropping social conservatism is the most disturbing to me. Social conservatism is the “values” wing of American Dream. The debt is a moral issue every bit as much as it is a fiscal one. It must ...

Democrats Want To Go Off The Fiscal Cliff

Screen Shot 2012-11-15 at 11.42.42 AM

During the president’s Nov. 14 news conference, he channeled the Sandy response as a “metaphor” for how the federal government should operate. “It’s been aggressive and strong and fast and robust and a lot of people have been helped because of it…that’s a pretty good metaphor for how I want federal government to operate generally, and I’m going to do everything ...

As we on the Right continue to ponder how we got handily beaten by a president with a dismal record, one of the areas that are salient in our rebuilding efforts rests with Hispanic voters.  About fifty thousand latinos turn eighteen every month, making this a key demographic Republicans must become competitive if we to survive as a political force. ...
