    • John Boehner Hates the Tea Party - 29 May 2014
      posted in Big Gov & Big Parties & Columns & Tea Party

      What is now called the Tea Party began in 2007 as a loosely-organized yet highly-motivated grassroots support effort for Congressman Ron Paul’s bid for the White House. Since those early days, a lot has happened to the Tea Party. For one thing, the Tea Party is now much larger and broader than any one person’s […]

    • We Won’t Win – Period – If We Don’t Do This - 27 May 2014
      posted in Columns & Rules for Patriots

      “Electable” is the ruling class’ favorite word. They never define it, of course, because it really means “only the candidate that will maintain the statist-corporatist status quo should get elected.” Therefore, it has no defined parameters except one—only those who hate the liberty-loving grassroots of the Republican Party get to define it. This explains why […]

      posted in Columns

      The following is an excerpt from the new book “Rules for Patriots: How Conservatives Can Win Again.” Several times during the 2012 campaign I had newspaper reporters from across the country contact me for my take on what Mitt Romney has to do to rally his base for the general election.

      posted in Columns & Tea Party

      What’s all the crowing about regarding North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis’ victory in the North Carolina Republican Senate primary this week? I’m talking about the crowing that this is some kind of defeat for the Tea Party. Sure, Greg Brannon was the Tea Party candidate and endorsed by Rand Paul. And, yes, the Republican […]

      What do Herman Cain, Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Tim Scott, Michele Bachmann, Condoleezza Rice, Allen West, Dr. Ben Carson, and TW Shannon all have in common? Calm down, Joseph.  I see your hand, but I want someone else to answer for a change.  No takers?  Okay, Joseph. You are correct.  They are hated by liberals […]

    • You Say You Want a Revolution - 04 Apr 2014
      posted in Big Gov & Columns & The Constitution

      We’ve watched as our constitutionally limited government grew until today it’s a leviathan running amok like Godzilla in Tokyo smashing things and scaring boy scouts. Our revolution changed the world. Our Declaration of Independence proclaims self-evident truths. That all men are created equal, they’re endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights, among these are life, […]

      The 2016 Presidential battles are beginning to take root.  Polls have been released, advisors are testing the waters.  The GOP wants a win.  It’s been too long.  They are faced, however, with a rising Tea Party faction who is aggravated with past GOP compromises and blunders on the United States’ most important issues: from war […]

    • Should GOP Conservatives Adjust Their Message for Blacks? - 26 Mar 2014
      posted in Civil Liberties & Columns

      Michael Brendan Dougherty wrote an article stating that the only way for conservatives to reach black voters is to drop their colorblind idealism.

Sometimes this is stupidly marketed to black voters as a selling […]

    • Why the Tea Party’s Waning, Not Winning - 05 Mar 2014

In some ways, this seems a silly question. The Tea Party has been enormously successful in changing the terms of the national debate on issues such as debt and spending. And, while its favored […]
