Why Republicans may not win the Senate after all

(Craig Shirley) – Establishment Republicans should keep the champagne on ice until after the midterm elections. Too many are already popping corks, pronouncing their strategy of “crushing” the Tea Party during the primaries as a crucial step in their successful takeover of the U.S. Senate. There are increasing signs, however, that the GOP might not take control of the Senate and may only make modest gains in the House of Representatives. In states like North Carolina, […]

Beyond Rand Paul: The Libertarians Are Coming

(Grover Norquist) – They’re no longer on the fringes. The libertarians are now officially mainstream. Proof? The New York Times Magazine cites the popularity of Republican Sen. Rand Paul and opposition to American “boots on the ground” in Syria and Iraq. But it’s much more than a moment. It’s the culmination of a powerful narrative building over the past 30 years in American politics. This is a movement — and it doesn’t live or die […]

OPEC of Sugar Election: Socialist vs. Socialist

(Chuck Muth) – Americans insisting on ending the U.S. sugar program in an effort to lead us into a utopian free-market nirvana keep ignoring exactly who our dance partners are. Take Brazil, for example. The world’s leading sugar producer is preparing to either re-elect an avowed socialist as president next month…or elect a new avowed socialist. According to her Wikipedia bio, President Dilma Rousseff “became a socialist during her youth” and later “joined various left-wing […]

Four Ways the GOP Can Become the Party of the Sharing Economy »

Four Ways the GOP Can Become the Party of the Sharing Economy

(John Kartch) – The sharing economy has released an entrepreneurial zeal in legions of Americans who haven’t run a business since their childhood lemonade stand. As it disrupts more industries and expands from hipster enclaves to suburbs and small towns, more Americans are coming to rely on sharing economy income to maintain or improve their standard of living. This presents an enormous outreach opportunity for free-market elected officials and candidates. That means you, Republicans. Now […]

Young Conservatives Seek to Reform National GOP Platform on Gay Marriage

(Jerry Ann Henry) – Nevada is a special place. In recent months, the Clark County Republicans removed language that defined marriage between a man and a woman from their official platform. Then the Nevada Republican party followed suit by stripping an anti-gay definition of marriage from their party platform at the state convention. This kind of inclusive thinking is one of the many reasons why Young Conservatives for the Freedom to Marry will be making a […]

Washington Post’s New Publisher Extinguished Reagan’s Flame At Library

(Richard Viguerie) – The announcement that Frederick J. Ryan, Jr., former Assistant to President Ronald Reagan and Reagan’s post-White House Chief of Staff is to become the Publisher of The Washington Post brought forth a minor Twitter-storm of speculation among Republicans that Ryan’s appointment would move the Nation’s struggling newspaper of record to the political Right. But Ryan’s appointment brought forth no such speculation from the remaining longtime Reaganites who remember Fred Ryan, not as […]

Clark County GOP Boss McKeon Presiding Over Mob Rule »

Clark County GOP Boss McKeon Presiding Over Mob Rule

(by Carl Bunce) – In the past year we have seen a calculated and complete devastation of the grassroots and long time Republican activists in the Clark County Republican Party. Since the election of Dave Mckeon as Chairman of the Clark County Republican Central Committee (CCRCC) we have seen long-time activist Woody Stroupe taken to the mat over a simple email miscommunication. We have seen elected e-board members treated like children and intimidated during meetings […]

Senate Republicans’ Bait-and-Switch Fundraising »

Senate Republicans’ Bait-and-Switch Fundraising

(by Richard A. Viguerie) – Hundreds of thousands of conservatives receive National Republican Senatorial Committee fundraising letters that would be considered “bait-and-switch” or even money laundering in the commercial world. The NRSC asks conservatives to send their hard-earned money with the promise of helping elect senators who will cut taxes, fight big government and protect liberty. Conservatives may be sending money believing that, but the NSRC uses your money to help elect progressive, big-government establishment […]

Do You Have the Courage to Revolt With Your Vote? »

Do You Have the Courage to Revolt With Your Vote?

(Tom Jones) – The approval rating of the United States Congress is about 15%. Yet, almost 90% of the incumbents are reelected. This is insanity. Who is at fault? We the People must take the blame. We continue to vote for the lesser of two evils. We don’t have the courage to revolt with our vote. We must stop voting for the party candidate blindly. We must eliminate any candidate from consideration who has taken […]

Roberson Used “Lies and Fear to Manipulate Voters” »

Roberson Used “Lies and Fear to Manipulate Voters”

(Carl Bunce) – I have taken a week and some much needed beach time to reflect on the Republican primary, which I lost last Tuesday, June 10th. It is a hard loss, because I devoted myself wholeheartedly to do the work needed to represent Senate 20. I met some of the most interesting and intelligent people while walking doors over the past six months during the campaign. Surprisingly, I was even able to help people […]
