    • Syria – What would Reagan do? - 03 Sep 2013
      posted in Columns

      The word is that the regime of Bashar al-Assad has used chemical weapons against its own people.  Reportedly 1,500 have died, including 400 children.   It is a heinous crime.  Some are calling for America to invade Syria and put down this regime.  So I pose this question.  What would Ronald Reagan do? The answer? […]

    • Rand Paul Now Leads Liberty Movement - 10 Apr 2013
      posted in Columns

      It has only been a little more than a month since Senator Rand Paul’s filibuster on the floor of the U.S. Senate. But it is looking more and more like a defining moment in American politics. It may be a defining moment in American history. The dramatic sight of Rand Paul standing all alone, in […]

    • Rand Paul – a new foreign policy - 14 Feb 2013
      posted in Columns & Globalism

      For the past few years, we in the liberty movement have had the luxury of being able to stand on the outside and lob in grenades at America’s corrupt foreign policy.  But now, with one of our own, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky as a potential president, we have to face the reality of how […]

    • Why Petraeus and not Clinton? - 15 Nov 2012
      posted in Columns

      Okay, since nobody wants to talk about the elephant in the room, I will be the dope and get all the criticism and mention it.  (This is the best part of being over sixty years of age.)  If the national news media, with a straight face, can tell us that the CIA director, General Petraeus, […]

    • The Politics of Blame? “George did it.” - 18 Oct 2012
      posted in Columns

      Should a presidents’ predecessor be a factor in judging his performance? We have all heard President Obama’s refrain, “it took us a long time to get into this mess and it’s going to take us a long time to get out of it.”  This is his explanation for why, now in his fourth and final year […]

    • Almost Presidents: Sons of presidents who almost won the White House themselves - 27 Sep 2012
      posted in Columns & People

      Eight men who might have been president. Everybody knows that there were two sons of presidents who became president themselves. John Quincy Adams, son of our second president, John Adams, was elected the sixth president of the United States. And George W. Bush, who was the son of George Herbert Walker Bush, was elected the […]

    • Post Paul: What now? - 06 Sep 2012

      Post Ron Paul: Where do we go now? Don’t assume that Ron Paul is going to ride off into the sunset, with his cowgirl, Carol, at his side.  He made it clear during his light hearted exchange with Jay Leno that he isn’t finished with us.  And I, for one, am not finished with him […]

    • Romney’s Revenge - 31 Aug 2012
      posted in Columns

      “It ain’t easy being green” – Kermit the Frog It ain’t easy being LDS, especially when you are running for president and 48% of the country claim to be born again Christians and many of them have been hostile to your Mormon religion, labeling it a cult. Getting the nomination takes a bit of genius, […]

    • Family Feud: The Obama girls versus the Romney boys - 24 Aug 2012
      posted in 2012 & Columns & Numbers & People & Politics & Govt

      Family Feud: The Obama girls versus the Romney boys. I once asked George W. Bush which is worse, to run for president or to have your father run for president?  He didn’t hesitate.  “It’s a lot harder having your dad run for president.”  It makes sense.  When people say things about your mother or father […]

    • How to Win a Presidential Election - 23 Aug 2012
      posted in 2012 & Civil Liberties & Columns & Numbers & Politics & Govt & Vote

      The mainstream media claims independents, the great unwashed in the middle, decide presidential elections. Conservative orthodoxy claims otherwise. Who is correct? The answer is they both are to an extent. Let’s face it, the mainstream media detests grassroots conservatives, therefore it will advance any dogma that seeks to marginalize the base of the Republican Party […]
