Voter Fraud In Oklahoma - A Lesson In History

Election Fraud

A lot has been said about voter fraud in the past few years. We in the Republican Party insist it exists and are working to prevent it by enacting laws that require voters to show identification when casting their ballots. The Democrat Party insist voter fraud exists only in our minds and imaginations and that our efforts to enact Voter ID laws are only an attempt to keep minority voters from casting their votes. As this history lesson from Paul R. Hollrah shows that not only does voter fraud exist, but it is the prime reason why the Republican Party has had to fight so hard to gain a foothold in Oklahoma politics. Thankfully, we have more than just a foothold, but are in → Read More

ObamaCare To Force Thousands Out of Health Care Plans With New Cancellations

ObamaCare Cancellations

If I had the time to do so, I could point you to countless posts, both on this blog and on others, warning Americans of the “unintended” consequences of the monstrosity known as ObamaCare. The biggest consequence came in direct contradiction of the lie repeated, ad nauseam, by President Obama that if you liked your health care plan or your doctor, you could keep your health care plan and doctor. That has already been proven to be false, but as I write this post, there are plans to make it even more so. Thirteen states and the District of Columbia will be announcing shortly that the health care plans they offer, that do not meet the “high standards” of ObamaCare, will be canceled.

Trey Gowdy For Speaker Of The House

Trey Gowdy

I know many of the people who may read this post are already fans of Trey Gowdy. He a Republican member of the House of Representatives and he has been charged with leading the investigation into what really happened in Benghazi. To put him in a nutshell, he is a former prosecutor and it shows when he sets his sights on a witness during questioning. He’s like a pit bull, with no give in him until he gets the truth from the poor soul who happens to be under his gun. No quibbling or waffling, just a single-minded purpose to get to the truth.

I came across this at Angry White Dude, who is fond of asking his readers to “fire away, inquiring minds want → Read More

GOP Donors Want Jeb Bush To Run For President In 2016

Jeb Bush 2016

There is already an abundance of speculation over who will be the Republican nominee for President in 2016. Many of us would like to see Senators Rand Paul or Ted Cruz in our corner, simply because they are already in our corner. They have stood up for us in Congress, not only to the liberal Democrats, but also to the Republican establishment. In my opinion, that’s a strong vote in their favor, before a campaign is launched, or a single vote cast. Even though I would prefer a strong Republican governor to run, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz have those things in their favor. I suspect a great number of grassroots Republicans feel the same way. There is, however, something else, ie. someone else, → Read More

Chuck Schumer Wants Immigration Compromise – Pass Law Now, Enact In 2017

Chuck Schumer

There are some things that just beg to be written about and discussed. Chuck Schumer’s idea of compromise on immigration reform is shouting loudly from the rooftops for that recognition.

If you have read Political Realities for any length of time, you will know I am openly derisive of the Democrats when they start talking about how conservatives need to compromise. Their past actions have shown me how untrustworthy they are. Their idea of compromise is usually conservatives giving over everything we believe in and they give over nothing. Scoff all you want, but that’s how it usually works with them. They have now added another idea to their arsenal of compromise. Just delay enacting the forms until 2017.

Jobs Report Highlights Economic Problems In The Obama Economy

Obama Economy

Yes, this is the Obama economy. No matter how much Mr. “I’m the President” tries to deny it, he owns the economy in which we are living. The January jobs report was not a beacon of hope. In fact, it was really bad. The December jobs report was also in the tank. That makes two months in a row of very few jobs being created. Amazingly, the unemployment rate continues to tick down. We are being told it was because 115,000 unemployed workers found new jobs. What most of the media will not tell us is that 90,000 more unemployed workers decided to leave the workforce altogether. Given the fact that almost as many workers left the workforce as found jobs, it’s no wonder → Read More

Republicans Have No Clue Who Their Enemy Really Is

Republicans Establishment

I’ve never been someone who constantly calls for a third-party in our political system. I have long-held the opinion that a third-party would be able to get very little done, simply because the Democrats and Republicans are so entrenched in the system. I’m still not there yet, but there is something that I need to get off my chest. Why does our party insist on eating its own? Would it be so hard for the Republican establishment to admit that Senator Ted Cruz is doing something good in his attempt to alert and inform Americans about the dangers that are inherent in Obamacare?

I can understand and appreciate the knowledge that if the Democrats stick together in the Senate, there is little the Republicans can → Read More
