It’s the instinct of a conservative to get busy with the business of living; family, business, work, etc. It’s the instinct of a liberal to organize; protest, boycott, ridicule, label, isolate, disrupt, isolate, etc. In the post-election weeks, instincts have once again taken over both sides. It’s tempting to dismiss the protesters, weeping students, melting… Read More Conservatives Must Fight Their Instincts

The shills are already hard at work (McCaskill, Shumer, Reid, Durbin, Menendez, Pelosi, etc.), hoping for a repeat of their “Kill Romney” strategy AND another trifecta by getting back the House in 2014. The conservatives are “wacky”, “radical”, racist, toxic water-loving, environment-hating elitists who are “eating their young”, “imploding”, “falling apart”, “infighting”, and whatever other… Read More The 2014 Shills Hard At Work
In the 1920’s, the GOP adapted a message of aspiration and optimism, coining the phrase “A chicken in every pot, and a car in every garage”.
