Can Obama’s “Hunker Down And Hide” Strategy Work For Another Four Years?

  Playing out before the entire country is a pattern repeated from four years ago.  President Obama and the Democrats use an electoral win to try to steamroll through a single project within weeks of taking office and then . . . hunker down and hide.  Four years ago a Democrat dominated House and Senate…

“Checkmark” Politics Destroying Republican Party

  Walking around in a daze like a group of non-flesh eating zombies, my Republican friends are still in mourning following the lashing we took in last month’s election.  Confused and beleaguered conservatives are reacting much like a biblical Job crying out to God “why me?”  Not only did we lose the election but our polling numbers…

Is The GOP Dead?

  An economy in shambles, a campaign in which the incumbent completely avoided discussing his own record, unemployment above levels above which an incumbent had EVER (that means ever in history) won an election, the rapid fall off of the positives of the  incumbent candidate and six huge scandals pending DURING and election – with…

Pay No Taxes, Get No Vote

  No one who does not pay federal taxes should have the right to vote – period.  We have finally reached the tipping point in America where those that have no financial stake in our government outnumber those that do.  More than 200 years ago both the Founding Fathers and philosophers predicted the day when…

Why Is It OK To Pick On Wage Earners?

  Looming ahead of President Obama in the next 50 days is mandatory 11% across the board cuts for most federal government departments including devastating cuts to the Department of Defense.  As part of a deal cut before the election, these cuts will automatically take place unless reversed by new legislation.  The center of this…

Will Obama Destroy The Country Or Move To The Middle?

  America stands at a cross-roads and the next four years could be a period of complete economic stagnation coupled with continually exploding national debt edging the United States to a Greece-like fate with an ever diminishing position of power in the world, or it could be a period of recovery, healing and restoration of…

Pardon Me, I’m Confused – Reflections On Election Eve

  Nearing the final hours of this campaign I honestly keep asking myself a single question – what am I missing?  An economy in shambles.  The forced adoption of a health care plan that the vast majority of the country opposes.  A failed foreign policy that has greatly diminished the standing of the United States. …

    “The Abuse of Power”   In Part 2 of this discussion I covered how the U.S. Constitution established three branches of government, each with specific duties (Separation of Powers), which provided a system of Checks and Balances.
