Conservatives today often call for “Principled Candidates” who draw “real contrasts” between us and the Left. I couldn’t agree more.
But how do we draw contrasts when the audience doesn’t share our principles?
The Viewpoint of Becky
For a moment, I want you to stop being like me; stop being a Conservative political junkie. Taking a step outside your well-informed bubble,…Continue
Ready for a primary-by-caucus? Let's make sure we NEVER have another Ronald Reagan who comes up through the grassroots process again, shall we?
That seems to be what Ryan Call, Lilly Nunez and Mike Kopp are saying to us. Is that what we want?
The RNC Spring Meeting in April yielded some great discussion about the Ginsberg power grab in Tampa and several opportunities to correct course. Our representatives to the RNC voted to support the top-down,…Continue

It appears that last week’s horrors provided another of our President’s “teachable moments,” because I learned something. I truly did. I learned that the Left searches more for “Conservative” killers than evolutionists search for missing links. At one point, I swore I saw Leftists patching mismatched fossils together, labeling their discovery “Piltdown Tax Day Assailant.” (For those non-science-buffs out there, just ignore me and…Continue

This is no article. This is a rant. I am really angry, folks.
On Wednesday, while in Denver touting gun control legislation, President Obama said the following:
“You hear some of these quotes: ‘I need a gun to protect myself from the government.’ ‘We can't do background checks because the government is going to come take my guns away.’
Well, the government is us. These officials are…
I would encourage everyone to watch the full 90-minute video from this forum. This is the video on which there are a couple of segments that Diana DeGette (CD-1) appeared poorly informed of terminology and issues. The panel included the board from the Denver Post, Ed Perlmutter (CD-7), Diana DeGette (CD-1), Senator Kevin Lundberg, and Sheriff Justin Smith (Larimer County).

Do you know what I see? I see a bunch of self appointed, pumped up, supposed leaders running around spouting this and that and doing nothing of consequence. Why aren't you brilliant leaders organizing a state wide Recall effort for the Governor, as well as enough of the Democrats who are in vulnerable areas of the state to overturn this assault on our constitutional rights?
Since the campaign before the 2008 elections I have been asking "Why is it that if someone is coherent…Continue

Karl Marx saw history as class struggle. I see history as Individualism verses Collectivism. The essential right of an Individual in America is to own property. Marx made it a central point of his writing to deny that right to the Individual.*
The founding fathers believed private property to be a foundation (Bill of Rights Amendment V) and upon this foundation was built the other Rights, namely Life, Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness, choice of Religion, to bear…Continue

Over the past year, I’ve had times when I was angry with people on the Right. A few examples are:

Have you noticed how many people are fleeing places like Detroit and California? Some evacuees are Conservatives, who bolt from failed experiments where success is punished. But many are Liberals. And with reliably Democrat votes, these Leftists swarm like locusts into neighboring states.
Conservatives often wonder, “If they run from failure, can’t they reject it? Don’t they see the wreckage left by their policies? Why don’t they learn?”

The mainstream media insulates this president from citizens learning the truth. Fortunately, their R-value is diminishing over time. Meanwhile, Tea Party, free market, constitutional and other liberty groups continue to grow, learn, organize, raise resources, teach and reach.
Rand Paul stood up to the cynicism and arrogance of the power structure this week. You can judge him both by the friends he keeps, those committed Senators who…

At the 5 March 2013 meeting of the Arapahoe Tea Party, we were alerted to yet another rushed bill to push something into law that is sure to rankle the electorate. In the presentation, information was shared from a study prepared by the Heritage Foundation's 2004 "Comprehensive Sex Education vs. Authentic Abstinence - A Study of Competing Curricula" white paper. (I have attached a link to this document at the end of this post.) It was suggested that if we testify, or communicate with our…Continue

Let me address my fellow Christian Conservatives.
Have you noticed that many Conservatives blame us for political losses? I hear it all the time: “If the Christians would just shut up about social issues, we’d have a chance!” Well, they’re wrong—but not fully. Fact is, every group within Conservatism has made mistakes, and we are no different.
The problem isn’t our values, but rather our attempts to limit opposing…Continue

In the December 7, 2012, issue of the New York Times, David Kopel wrote an opinion piece about the recent U.N. treaty that was not ratified by the United States senate. If you missed it, the treaty concerned persons with disabilities but there were some areas that bureacrats with the United Nations would fill in the details later--at least that was my understanding.
Recently there was a video of Anderson Cooper grilling Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) on the failure of the senate…Continue

Matthew Continetti has written an article about a meeting that took place recently that was not covered by the media. It is consistent with a group of people who is discussed in the book by Adam Schrager and Tim Witwer titled "The Blueprint:..." The article simply helps draw attention to people and organizations that do not get enough attention.
