The Solution The House Republicans Should Propose

As President Obama and Harry Reid continue to push for higher taxes (on everyone) while not offering any immediate spending cuts to elevate America’s fiscal crisis of spending $1 Trillion + more than it is binging in year after year, there is only one real solution that seems to be viable. Unfortunately, the House Republicans lead by John Boehner (if you can call what he does “leadership”) don’t seem willing to propose it. Continue reading

Quick Thought For Today (December 19th, 2012)

No man, worth his salt as a man, would ever suggest that government force be used against another to take the fruits of that other’s labor so that he may have something he did not earn.

The Rebellious Stripes

In 1773, the Sons of Liberty protested taxes in a little event you may have heard of: The Boston Tea Party.  One of the flags used by the group had 13 horizontal stripes alternating red and white.  Another version had … Continue reading

Moderate Romney Fails To Deliver for GOP

So, how’s that whole, “Let’s nominate the next in line, moderate, GOP establishment candidate” working out? Answer: Not good. Not good at all. You know, sooner or later you cranky Republicans pulling the levers and switches of the party are going to listen to me. That is, if you ever want to win another Presidential race. Continue reading

Those Without Principles Always Turn Into Hypocrites

One year ago, during the Republican primaries, the call was: “vote for someone and something you believe in”. Now that Romney is the nominee and conservatives are having a hard time swallowing the prospect of another moderate Republican incapable of … Continue reading

Conservative Must Believe In Equality Under The Axe

I always must warn that many people who claim to be conservatives are not really conservatives. They might lean to the right, but I have found that most “conservatives” don’t practice consistency with what the ideology preaches. This is particularly true when it comes to the fiscal side of conservatism, which stands for responsible spending on only the constitutional functions of government. Continue reading

Tearing Down Another Ill Concieved Argument RE: Chevy Volt

No matter how many times I warn people, they still think they are smarter than they really are. I get a lot of nonsensical emails from said people. And, as usual, when I point out the truth about enviro weenie pipe dreams like the Chevy Volt, fools come out of the woodwork. Today’s fool is Bryan Clifton. Continue reading

Two Big Reasons Why Medicare Is Not Good

“Shhh,” I’m told by my fellow “conservatives”. They don’t want me attacking entitlement programs like Medicare and speaking the truth about them. They say it will hurt Mitt Romney’s chances in November. They opine about how we can’t target a program so many depend on. What ever happened to their revulsion over the “kinder, gentler conservatism” (i.e. soft socialism) that they used to express is a mystery. Continue reading

When It Comes To Romney, Ryan, Obama, And Biden, Ryan IS The Smartest Guy In The Room

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), now Romney’s VP pick, somewhat understands the problems with big government. His problem is that he doesn’t understand how exactly to tear down said big government. The budget proposals bearing his name over the past few years, which give us deficits as far as the eyes can see, and which keep funding all sorts of unconstitutional things, are exhibit A in that argument. I know many conservatives hate to hear it, but the truth is important to face. Continue reading

Romney Picks Ryan So Just Remember …

Ok, so Mitt Romney has made his choice for VP. That choice? Representative Paul Ryan (WI), a man who has proven that when he is in a battle of wits and words with a liberal he will utterly devastate them. Continue reading

What Real Libertarians Think About Gay Marriage

I hear too many people who claim to be libertarians say they support the government allowing gay couples to get married. These people are not true libertarians however. They are liberaltarians. Continue reading

Red States Lead The Way

Apparently, ditching Democrats is good for your state’s economy.  That’s according to an analysis of how electing Republican governors, even moderate ones, helped drop the unemployment rate in States that did so in 2010.  Gee, immagine what we could do … Continue reading

Argument Loosing Statements

There are just certain statements one makes that, by their very nature, admit that they have lost the argument. For example, when a liberal calls me a racist, they admit that they have nothing left in their quiver to argue with against the facts. Continue reading

Ooops! More People Who Know And Speak The Truth

Liberals think that the concept that the Constitution is not some nebulous, unlimited grant of power to the federal government is some sort of concoction of evil conservatives like myself. The simple fact is that before liberalism took hold in America, the Constitution was just as conservatives say it actually is and completely contrary to the liberal view. I like to point this out to liberals by actually quoting people from our nation’s history who knew their butts from a hole in the ground on this issue. People like Grover Cleveland who wrote in 1887: Continue reading

No Right To An Education

Liberals believe that one has a right to an education and that it should be free. This is not true and actually flies in the face of logic, not to mention individual liberty. Continue reading

Gary Johnson And The Libertarian Party

After being purposefully shut out of the Republican primary debates, former Governor Gary Johnson said to Hell with the process and switched affiliations to run for the Libertarian party’s spot on the November ballot. Now he is their nominee and will likely still be shut out of the debates to come. Continue reading

Victory Only When The Right Unites

I laugh any time someone tries to argue that “libertarians” and “conservatives” are different animals.  We’re not.  Both believe in the US Constitution.  Both believe in limited government based on the Constitution.  So where is the difference?  Really, in my … Continue reading

Would You Be Proud?

If you were adamantly against Mitt Romney six months or a year ago because he was too liberal, but are now “for” him because he is the GOP’s nominee then ask yourself this. Would you be proud to display the … Continue reading
