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 ...

Bi-partisanship logo

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. He is a college educated chemical engineer, married, with a young son and a pregnant wife.  He has ...

A fractured party is a losing party

Why is it that when Democrats govern like Socialist dictators they win, but when Republicans govern like Democrats they lose? The sad part is that both parties govern in such a similar capacity that it is hard to tell them apart these days. Both parties have an insatiable appetite for spending; and fiscal discipline in Washington is as rare as ...

Is Gary Johnson the New Ross Perot?

The Former Governor of New Mexico and current Libertarian Party candidate for president Gary Johnson isn’t likely going to become the next president, but that doesn’t mean he won’t have an effect on the outcome of the election come November. Johnson briefly participated in the Republican primaries and debates before switching over to the Libertarian ticket, and per Fox News, ...

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. Pesky Republicans ARE actively working to discourage voter turnout in the 2012 Presidential election! Unfortunately, in typical GOP fashion, the party is busy suppressing its own vote. Thanks to a decision by the Virginia Republican State Central Committee, voters who may want to participate ...

Oklahoma’s Republican Party: How Do We Stop The Corruption?

I have been actively involved in the political spectrum for about 3 years now. Thirty-five years ago I tried to get involved, but when I saw how corrupt and self-serving the process was, I gave up. I registered as an Independent with the hopes that being an Independent would insulate me from the corruption, self-serving politicians, and the evil that ...
