Rand Paul’s Fascinating Fillibuster Incredible Challenge To Left

One of the most fascinating dynamics I have ever seen is playing out before our eyes in the Senate right now.  At about noon E.D.T today, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul took the dais in the United States Senate and declared “I rise today to begin to filibuster John Brennan’s nomination for the C.I.A.,” Mr. Paul…

Simple Solution To Ending Government Corruption – Terminate Pay

You would be hard pressed to find anyone that thinks that there is NO corruption in Washington and unfortunately it has become so enmeshed in our culture that most people just shrug their shoulders and say “what can you do?”  Both parties are equally culpable here and neither party really wants to take any action…

I Want My Country Back!!

  A little more than a year ago a good friend of mine from the left wrote a very interesting piece about seeing a sign in a neighbor’s yard which proclaimed “I want my country back.”  Seeing this sign, my friend wrote, drove her to tears because she felt that “it was her country too.”  To…

My Fate Better Than Karl Rove And Dick Morris

  Sounds like the beginning of a joke: “What do I have in common with Karl Rove and Dick Morris?”  We are three conservatives that boldly predicted a big Romney win in the last Presidential election.  The differences are pretty obvious as well:  they are nationally known conservatives, have had huge roles inside the beltway, are…

“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…

Fiscal Cliff Purely Political Play For Democrats

  With all of the hype and bluster about the wealthy paying “their fair share” coming out the Democrats you would think that tax hikes were the be all and end all of future economic success.  If ALL of President Obama’s proposed tax hikes were implemented they would amount to about .5% of the total…

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…

How Does A Kinder, Gentler Nation Discourage Home Ownership And Philanthropy

    Facing the self-described fiscal cliff, the amount of rhetoric pouring out of Washington unfiltered by the media conducting their own war of thoughts and ideas has completely obscured two disturbing concepts that sadly say a lot about the state of America.  Whichever plan is adopted, we are likely looking at the end of…

Immigration Laws Must Be Enforced – Both Parties Fail

  It would be fine with me if the United States deported everyone in the United States that is here illegally.  I know that I will be called heartless and a destroyer of families.  The truth is that the law is the law and it has to be either enforced or changed – until it…

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…

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…
