National Elections Don’t Occur in a Vacuum

Today, all eyes are on the presidential race, and understandably so. But national elections don’t occur in a vacuum. Understanding the results at the top of the ticket requires interpreting the result in the context of state and local races which occur simultaneously.

Why political endorsements should be obsolete

Already, as in every election cycle, heavyweight politicians and insipid celebrities are drawn, like moths to a flame, to campaign trail and commercial appearances for endorsement spots. This culture, which promotes the puerility of groupthink, and depresses the meritocracy that should underlie popular elections, is one of soft despotism.

That Funny Leftist Equation about Voter I.D.

I know it’s kind of a blase issue now that the 2012 elections are over, but I felt the urge to write on the topic of voter I.D. after seeing a Facebook friend writing something about voter suppression in a status update.

Yes, Your Vote Counts!

Yesterday, July 31, 2012 was a monumental day in Texas. Though the national media refuses to take notice, proclaiming that the Tea Party is dead, Ted Cruz “clinched the Texas Republican Senate nomination” by 13 percentage points over the establishment Republican candidate, David Dewhurst. Quite often, we hear someone say they never vote because their vote doesn’t count. History proves ...

Media Brainwashing Techniques: How Do we Overcome It?

In yesterday’s article I delved into Ben Kinchlow’s excellent commentary on the World Net Daily site from February 26, 2012 . In his article Kinchlow laid out the media’s brainwashing tactics very well. I expanded a little deeper into the political side than did Kinchlow but it is based on the very same pattern. I merely expanded into the political ...

Getting Political with Kids

As my kids and I pulled into the local community center parking lot this morning, ready to cast a vote in the GOP primary, the past 10 years of voting sort of flashed before my eyes.
