Ron Paul and Michelle Bachman: The fight for the Tea Party

No one can deny the nascent phenomenon of the liberty movement in America. It is riding a populist wave against government-insider deals that are making the rich richer and the poor poorer and sacrificing individual liberty in the process. An interesting mix of Republicans and Democrats are involved in this uprising, blurring old labels likeContinue reading “Ron Paul and Michelle Bachman: The fight for the Tea Party”

Sarah Palin: Frontrunner

Okay sports fans, here we go.  As of now, who is the front runner for the GOP nomination in 2012?  And the answer is pretty simple.  Sarah Palin.  She is not only the most likely to win the nomination, she is also probably the only one who could beat Barack Obama. Actually, no one canContinue reading “Sarah Palin: Frontrunner”

Ron Paul’s Excellent Minnesota Adventure

Now, in case you have missed the Ron Paul story, he is the wiry little, gray haired, congressman, who challenged the big boys in the nationally televised Republican debates earlier this year.  It was quite a show. McCain, Romney and Huckabee would argue over who was the first to be dutifully committed to the troopContinue reading “Ron Paul’s Excellent Minnesota Adventure”

McCain camp did not talk to Franklin Graham either!

Well, it just gets richer and richer.  Now, it appears that no one on the McCain team actually talked with Franklin Graham, let alone, sent him a letter.  Apparently they left him a message on his answering machine.  And it was months ago!   According to the Graham people it was during the primaries and itContinue reading “McCain camp did not talk to Franklin Graham either!”

John McCain and Billy Graham

Inside the McCain Campaign’s Big Foul Up. Oops, apparently I hit a nerve.  My NEWSMAX article on the McCain Campaign turning down a meeting between Billy Graham and Senator McCain prompted outrage from the Senator’s staff.  And then desperate calls from John McCain staffers to the Graham Association prompted clarifications from their side too. ButContinue reading “John McCain and Billy Graham”

Memo to John McCain: Pick Joe Lieberman for Vice President

  So what can John McCain do?  If evangelicals number 42% of the population (according to Barna,) and if their super churches are the Republican equivalent of the unions in the Democrat Party of the 1950s and 60s, the key to increased voter registration, the machine to turn out the vote; and if these evangelicalContinue reading “Memo to John McCain: Pick Joe Lieberman for Vice President”

McCain and Able: How the GOP lost the evangelicals in 2008 and put Obama in the White House

  “For the Lord had regard for Obama and his offering but he did not have regard for McCain and his offering.” When the McCain-Davis-Black team accepted and then publicly repudiated the recent endorsement of evangelical Christian leaders they broke one of the most powerful laws of modern political life.  You can’t attack evangelical leadersContinue reading “McCain and Able: How the GOP lost the evangelicals in 2008 and put Obama in the White House”

Robespierre wants the names of those conspirators !

Re: Yesterday’s blog. Now I am getting a lot of unwanted  e-mails trying to identify the former governor and senator that I referred to in my last blog.  No, I am not trying to protect elitists in the Republican Party, just being courteous.  If I had thought it would help anyone to mention their namesContinue reading “Robespierre wants the names of those conspirators !”

How a GOP conspiracy continues to cheat Ron Paul

(Here is a note in a bottle, thrown out onto the ocean, from someone inside the conspiracy. I hope it is found.) So, if the Ron Paul Movement has struck a chord, then why did he not do better in the race for the GOP nomination? 1.) Well, because it is a movement that hasContinue reading “How a GOP conspiracy continues to cheat Ron Paul”

Why Huck Fights On

So why is Mike Huckabee staying in the race for president?  What does he hope to gain?  What is he seeing that the rest of us don’t see? Ahhhh, it is the last question that answers the first two.  Huckabee is reading different numbers on his chances and so far, his numbers are proving theContinue reading “Why Huck Fights On”
