Has the Republican Party Shifted to the Left? The Answer May Surprise You

Does Party Affiliation Matter? Trump’s Hijack of the GOP

Even the mention of political parties in general brings out the worst in some people, and the reaction only becomes more vociferous and “colorful” when specific parties are mentioned by name. As despised and maligned as the two major parties are, at any given time, it’s amazing they’re still around, even though they fill a crucial role in our American ...

Could Ronald Reagan Be Elected in Today’s Republican Party?

Democrats like to point the supposed drift towards extremism in the GOP by claiming Reagan, the figurehead of the conservative resurgence, could not get elected in the party he so influenced. They, of course, mean this as a pejorative slam, but is there any truth in it? And, if so, is this a good thing? First, Ronald Reagan the rhetorician ...

Should All Political Parties Embrace Liberal Values? The Left Seems To Think So.

The concept that the whims of public opinion, the fads of the moment, or the opinions of an ideological opponent should fundamentally alter what a particular political party stands for has always seemed rather odd to me. It is an argument I see trotted out in articles from Left leaning sites on a regular basis. The argument is always, without ...

“Rendition”, Fact or Fiction? Totalitarian Government is Here

I watched the movie “Rendition” a few nights ago and began thinking about the situation in our nation today.  The movie is about an Egyptian man who has lived in the United States for 20 years, moving here when he was 14.

Barack Obama and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Presidency

When we all heard his speeches during the 2008 campaign, it was something akin to the Lesley Gore’s Sunshine, Lollipops, and Rainbows. He promised more transparency and a return of civility in politics.  He was everything George Bush wasn’t, which provided the hot air that led him to the presidency.  Bush did run deficits and the orgy of spending and ...

The Republican Party Must Restore its Legacy of Expanding Freedom

The Republican Party must reclaim its mantle as the party that expands freedom. The GOP has a deep history of promoting liberty, both at home and abroad, and it must draw on this legacy to gain moral strength and clarity of vision. The party should thus distinguish itself from the progressive Democrat Party if it wants to regain the trust ...

Could Thomas Friedman Be Right?

It’s really amazing that Thomas Friedman gets paid to write. Really. How come I can’t find someone to pay me for ridiculous opinions? His article, “We Need a Second Party“, laments that the Republican Party has become radicalized and is no longer in touch with it’s “conservative” base – creating an inability to settle on a candidate and therefore, the ...

Republicans ARE Discouraging Voter Turnout

It’s a dream come true for hysterical liberals and their fellow travelers in the ‘unbiased’ media.

Thanks to a decision by the Virginia Republican State Central Committee, voters who may want to participate ...
