“Small-Government” Rep Paul Ryan Joins Team Romney

Mitt Romney made a bold move today – he picked a running mate that will easily overshadow him for the rest of the election cycle (like Sarah Palin rapidly overshadowed Senator McCain). And like Sarah Palin before him, Rep Paul Ryan is going to be the small-government, Libertarian, Tea Party voters’ rallying point on the […]

Why Americans Are Tuned Out From This Year’s Gutter Politics

Published by under All General Discussions

The final stretch of summer 2012 is here and as the August heat and humanity begin to simmer DC, the stench of our bloated and incompetent federal bureaucracy is also beginning to intensify.

You Didn’t Build (or Do) That!

Published by under All General Discussions

Barack Obama is now experiencing why his lack of experience is so damning. In 2008, riding a wave of anti-Bush frustration from a pliant (if not brain dead) news media, The One had an easy coast to election as everyone WISHED for something better. No analysis, no vetting, no looking at warning signs. Just wishful […]

Small Government Tea Party Alive & Kicking

Published by under 2012 Elections

The news media – and to be honest many on the religious right – wish to confuse the Tea Party with social conservatism. But this is a complete misread of where the Tea Party started and its core tenants. The Tea Party is Libertarian at its core – small, minimalistic government. It is not super […]
