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 → Read More
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. → Read More
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 → Read More
Maybe I am beginning to come around to the point of view espoused by I’m a Man! I’m 41!. Maybe it is time we drew a line in the sand and said enough is enough. Maybe it is time we stood our ground and defunded Obamacare, even if some members of the Republican Party believe that is the wrong direction to take. I guess that’s why I agree so strongly with this rant by → Read More
I don’t mind telling you, I am tired of hearing about how racist the Republican Party is. Racism is a part of our past and I am sure it exists today, although not to the degree some people seem to believe. I am also certain President Obama doesn’t have a clue about real racism, as he was raised by a rich white grandmother who afforded him every luxury. Grand for him, but it does → Read More
The 2012 presidential election is in the history books and it didn’t turn out as many of us had hoped. As a result, we are just beginning the second term, another four years, of Barack Obama as President. I know I am not the only conservative who has groaned with impatience at the thought of four more years with Obama in the White House. I have seen that feeling expressed at more than a → Read More
There are some issues in America that simply refuse to go away. Immigration reform is one of those issues. I’m not advocating that it should fade from our consciousness, but like all issues political, it has had its time in the sun, a little here and a little there. It comes and goes, but never has there been a time when the reality of the issue could be denied. At some point, America is → Read More
At what point does the ridiculous become absurd? When is it okay to call President Obama out on his complete and total foolishness? Since I am the one writing this post, this is my opinion. We are far past the point where Obama should be called on the carpet for the foolish statements he makes. His latest published gripe about the media really makes me wonder just how out-of-touch the President really is. Is → Read More
I’m sure by now that most everyone has heard about Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and his remarks at the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina. Before I get to the bulk of my post, let me preface it by saying I am not endorsing or disregarding Governor Jindal’s remarks. I do, however, believe they merit a discussion. To do anything less is to be naive about the condition of the Republican → Read More
I am sure many of you can and will relate to what I am about to write. After the election, I was in a bad mood. I still wonder why we were not able to get out our vote and carry the day on November 6. I am finding it amusing to watch the professional pundits as they toss around ideas about how and where the Republican Party needs to change. Bill Kristol seems → Read More
Ladies and gentlemen, the next President of the United States!
Don’t think that Republicans are going to escape my critical eye. No one here can ever call me a partisan after this. On Sunday, I will have Part Three posted on my blog at Christian Fearing God-Man, and part three will basically explain the idea behind these posts as a whole in case the meaning is lost on anyone.
Prepare yourselves! The Rules → Read More
If you believe Romney is a fiscal conservative…
There is a fairly consistent narrative about Mitt Romney among conservative Republicans. Yes, he was uncomfortably liberal while in Massachusetts politics. Yes, he has vacillated on a lot of policy positions over the years. Yes, conservatives have had to pull him to the right throughout the campaign. But, it is argued, conservatives in Congress (particularly the House) will force conservative principles on Romney that → Read More
Libertarian Party Presidential Nominee Governor Gary Johnson and Country Thinker at the National Convention.
I attended the Libertarian Party National Convention as an Ohio delegate last weekend, as well as worked as a floor captain for Governor Johnson’s campaign (my duty was to persuade undecided voters to cast their ballots for Governor Johnson for president and Judge Jim Gray for Vice President). I came away from the Convention extremely optimistic about the campaign, → Read More
Romney (D-Mass.), candidate for hood ornament
Thanks to LD for allowing me to publish this lengthy article that is mirror-posted at The Country Thinker. It will be shocking to some, but I have been accused (politely) of being crazy, insane, and a variety of similar expressions over my political positions. This is my rebuttal to explain in detail why I am not.
I don’t normally post on Saturday, but I had a → Read More
Is It Time To Abandon The Republican Party? I’ll get right to the point and tell you this is something I have been thinking about for quite some time. To say that I have been troubled by the way the Republican primary contests have went down would be the understatement of the year. I have tried to stay away from some of the controversy surrounding the way the votes were counted in the Nevada → Read More
Who would make a vice-presidential candidate to Mitt Romney that would increase the probability of the Republican ticket winning the election as well as make a stronger and more conservative executive?
The Media, the die-hards, the dreamers, the ostriches, and the Palin-NYT types, in involuntary partnership with the rabid-activists of the right, wishing for the self-destruction of the Republican Party, may still be pretending and promoting this ugly contest to go on, but → Read More
