Know Thine Enemy (Guest Post)

The other day I and a coworker were assigned a special assignment which basically meant we stood next to each other for two hours and talked politics. My coworker, Andrew, is a hardcore Libertarian. I generally agree with Libertarians on fiscal issues and limited government but not on drug legalization and immigration. But we are… Read more »


Plug & Play Politics (Guest Post)

By 5 Comments 261 views

I’ve heard it repeated it for years. “When the Republican party runs moderates we lose. When we run real conservatives we win.” Reagan recommended the Republicans paint in “bold colors” rather than “pastels” to offer voters a clear choice, that would presumably favor Republicans. And after watching the McCain and Romney defeats, this belief that… Read more »

Shake Shake Shake! Shake Your Romney! Shake Your Romney!

Thank you Mr. Fehrnstrom for saying out loud and confirming exactly what many conservative new long ago; Mitt Romney is promising to conservatives whatever it is that he thinks they want to hear without any intention of keeping it. The only thing shocking about this revelation is that Eric Fehrnstromn said it out loud, not in a conversation he believed was off the record or private, cut being broadcast by CNN live.
