The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each state, chosen by the Legislature thereof for six years; and each Senator shall have one vote. - Original version of Article 1, Section 3, Clause 1 of the United States Constitution.
There was a reason for the legislature of the various states to have ultimate control over who was the Senator. While it might be hard for progressives to swallow, but the Founding Fathers believed the United States should be a Republic for which it stands one Nation under God, and that includes the various states having an equal vote in the United States Senate.
The Founders established the House of Representatives to be the voice of the people, but the United States Senate was established to be the voice of the states, and the states alone. Being important for America, is that the people of the United States have a voice in the House, but it was just as important for the states to have an equal voice in the Senate, so legislation that infringed on the tenth amendment or was bad for the states, would be defeated.
Not to mention, the Founders believed in states rights, and that the states deserved just as much of a voice at the table via the Senate, as the people have via the House. Before the progressive era, the tenth amendment meant alot.
The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, elected by the people thereof, for six years, and each Senator shall have one vote. - 17th amendment to the United States Constitution.
During the progressive era, nothing was safe. Knowing that elected representatives of the United States Senate would oppose much of their agenda, progressives sought the destruction of all Constitutional barriers to their utopia agenda, including one of the longest standing passages in the Articles of the Constitution.
Because of that change, we now have Senators such as Senator Nelson of Nebraska, who ignores the will of the Nebraska people, Governor, and legislature without regard for the effects of horrific legislation on the populace. If the 17th amendment was to be repealed, we would have folks who were elected to represent the states as a whole, and restore another piece to the Republican form of government puzzle, which has been missing..
Repeal the 17th amendment? Right on! This is America, we are a Republic, not a damn Democracy.

A campaign that wasn't supposed to be
In a township of just 1,600 voters, the race for Town Supervisor in little known Richmondville New York, put a whole new meaning to the phrase, "every vote counts". Just a few weeks ago, a small, yet hot blooded town of 3,000 citizens, was in the midst of one of the most interesting elections one person could ever encounter.
Supervisor John Barlow (R) wasn't supposed to be running for re-election, as the death of his beloved wife of decades and the loss of his leg because of diabetes, painted a bleak picture for the future of the longtime Councilman and one term Supervisor, however, due to lack of another Republican to run for the seat, Barlow decided to run for another term, and perhaps his last two years in public office.
Local Republicans were concerned with the electoral chances of Supervisor Barlow, as his ability to campaign was limited, and the campaign consisted of a few advertisements in the paper, a local appearance touting local Republicans seeking elected office, final weekend campaigning of a few supporters, and a last minute mailer to the voters of Richmondville.
Facing off against John Barlow was Scott Bennett, an inexperienced Councilman whom was just elected to the Town Board in 2008, the longtime Democrat was running a strong campaign, however, with the 2009 economic recession affecting Americans all across the Nation, experience was golden for candidates across the board.
With the 2009 elections nearing, the Supervisor election was expected to be a nail biter, as the longtime Republican councilman who was elected as Supervisor with under 50% of the vote in 2007, because of fractures amongst left-of-center voters, would tout his years of service to the Town, and the experience he could provide during these tough times, something his Democratic opponent could not offer.
Its amazing, candidates will spend hundreds to thousands of dollars on a local election over the timeline of months, and it all comes down to just fifteen hours of voting. The polls opened as a beautiful morning was just beginning, however, nightfall would bring a long night of wondering as Republicans and Democrats watched the results stream in.
Turnout was respectable, however, those who remained on the sidelines must have regretted their choice of ignoring an important local election, with the closest election I have ever witnessed.
With all votes counted, Supervisor John Barlow trailed his Democratic opponent by a margin of just two votes, with dozens of absentee ballots yet to be counted. The feeling was unrealistic, that such an important election, could come down to so few voters, a wake up call for those who dismiss their sacred vote, a vote secured through two hundred years of Americans fighting for freedom.
Two weeks later, the local Board of Elections counted the last of absentee ballots in the Richmondville Supervisor election, the full measure of a the American vote was realized on this morning, as it was announced Supervisor John Barlow was re-elected to the highest office in this small town, by just one vote.
346 citizens voted for John Barlow, 345 citizens voted for his Democratic opponent, 80 citizens skipped this election while filling out their ballots, and one vote was void.
What to learn from this election
The next time someone declares "your vote doesn't count", I want you to remember the Supervisor election in a little town, the United States Senate election in Minnesota, and the close Congressional elections in both of New York's special elections in 2009.
Your vote does count, please don't waste it.
On a side note, the 2009 election was not just a great testament to the value of the American vote, but it appeared as though John Barlow was revitalized, as though a man was born anew. Another testament of this election, never give up, even during the worst of times.

This health care battle is not to just defeat socialism, the destruction of the greatest health care system in the world, and to defend freedom at all costs. This battle is also about the United States Constitution, and whether we as a Nation will follow the words of freedom, small government, and Individualism.
The United States Constitution is specific, it details the freedoms the government must protect at all costs, and leaves all other rights to the various states in the land, and the people of the United States, while at the same including the rules of governing for the United States, a perfect balance.
Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution has a detailed list of what the United States Congress has Constitutional authority over, and absent from the list, is government run health care, along with the lacking of authority to mandate the American populace to purchase something or else be sent to jail.
The tenth amendment of the United States Constitution is specific about who controls the powers not delegated to the federal government, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.", notice it does include Congress, the Executive branch, or congressional Democrats.
Besides for the facts, that the proposed health care plans will raise taxes, push the destruction of Capitalism, give the government more control, install a health care system which does not work, provide for taxpayer funded abortions, jail Americans who just want their freedom, raise costs, add trillions more to the national debt, allow illegal immigrants to receive health care, provides for millions of Americans to receive something they have no right to (health insurance), pushes individual freedom and personal responsibility down the toilet, and will lead to lower survival rates, fewer doctors, and rationing, all Democratic legislation proposed is against the Constitution.
In the end, just one document counts, the United States Constitution. It is about time, we focus more on what it declares, instead of what proponents of government health care demand.
If this legislation does pass, I hope Conservative lawyers across the Nation will launch lawsuits against the legislation, reach the United States Supreme Court, and the Justices will rule the legislation as unconstitutional. If that does not happen, America is over, once and for all.

Congressman Walt Minnick (D - Idaho's 1st congressional district) has just sealed his defeat in the 2010 congressional elections, as the first elected Democrat to the United States House of Representatives from Idaho in decades, Minnick was expected to have a tough election next year, however, after his "aye" vote this afternoon on H.R. 4173, his defeat is guaranteed.
Congressman Walt Minnick was elected to the House of Representatives as a fiscal Conservative, while having a liberal belief system on all other issues. During his first term in the House of Representatives, Minnick has voted as a fiscal Conservative on most if not all economic related legislation, however, this afternoon Minnick supported legislation that can be described alone as fascist.
According to Open Congress, The Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2009 will "overhaul regulations in the financial sector. It would establish a new Consumer Financial Protection Agency to regulate products like home mortgages, car loans and credit cards, give the Treasury Department new authority to place non-bank financial firms, like insurance companies into receivership and regulate the over-the-counter derivatives market.", in other words - more government control.
This legislation is awful and pure evil, as it will establish more government control over the economics of Americans and businesses alike, the United States Chamber of Commerce has launched an advertisement campaign against the legislation, and all 175 Republicans present this afternoon voted against the legislation, with 27 Democrats opposing the legislation as well.
Congressman Walt Minnick, a supposed "blue dog Democrat" from Idaho, supported and voted for this horrific legislation, which will allow more government interference into the private market, push our economic system to resemble a fascist regime instead of a Capitalistic system, and provides for a 6 billion dollar bribe to appease the corrupt Congressional Black Caucus.
Several Conservative Republicans are running against Minnick, all of them deserve our support as they seek to reclaim Idaho's first congressional district as a Conservative Republican district, with real fiscal Conservative representation.

Eliot Spitzer, the former Governor of New York who resigned after his sexual exploits with numerous prostitutes was exposed, is considering a run for the Democrat nomination, to be the Democratic candidate for State Comptroller. Thomas DiNalopi, the current Comptroller who was elected to that position via the state legislature after Alan Hevesi resigned (another Democrat violating the law), is considered a weak Democratic candidate for the 2010 elections, and thus Spitzer might be an appealing candidate.
New York is one of the most unstable governments in the Union, as the state is deep in red ink, we have one of the most incompetent Governors ever to be in office, the corruption of Democrats has spread since all branches of Government are controlled by Democrats, and now we have the possibility of Eliot Spitzer running for public office again.
Can it get worse?
It was bad enough the people of New York elected Spitzer in the first place to the executive branch, than as Governor he screwed the people of New York in regards to public trust, misuse of state troopers, not to mention he broke the law numerous times, and was pushing legislation to allow illegal immigrants to have drivers licences in New York, when they should not be in the United States, at all.
Knowing the voters of New York, I wonder if Spitzer would be denied election to serve as Comptroller, considering New York is the state of Senator Schumer, Congressman Rangel, Congressman Owens, Governor Paterson, among numerous other corrupt Democrats who use public office as a personal trough.
I would not trust Eliot Spitzer with a female member of the human species, why would the citizens of New York trust the dirtbag with one ounce of power, let alone the duties of auditing government operations and the state retirement system. If Spitzer runs for Comptroller, I hope the citizens of New York have at least one minuscule ounce of ethics and the rule of law left inside of them, because if Spitzer was to be elected, I would file a lawsuit against the citizens of New York for stupidity.
While Spitzer is just considering a run at this point, I guarantee, if Spitzer does run for State Comptroller, I will invest all hours of the day to defeat this scumbag, as he has no place or right to be within a mile of public office, after the disgusting behavior he exhibited as Governor of New York.
Need another reason to vote GOP? "Join the Democrats, in a movement based on the beliefs and actions of Bill Clinton, Max Baucus, Eliot Spitzer, and Congressman Rangel."

Yesterday, it was reported Senator Reid compared those who opposed the Democratic legislation in regards to health care, are the same as those who defended slavery, and he said so on the floor of the United States Senate. Republicans and Conservatives alike are demanding an apology, as Democrats are reaching a new low in comparing those who are standing for freedom......to those who enslaved men against their will.
Does it surprise me?
No. Considering we have been called terrorists, racists, Nazis, un-American, evil, and accused of supporting a health care system, where the plan for Seniors is "die". It is funny, because the health care plan the Democrats are pushing, will raise the debt, increase taxes, lead to rationing of seniors, the destruction of freedom in the health care market, violates the Constitution, etc. sounds like the evil plan to me.
Senator Reid's ignorance in regards to historical facts is saddening, thus Isaac Hayes, a candidate for the Republican nomination, and soon Republican candidate for Congress in Illinois second congressional district, in which he will face off against the corrupt Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr., released a brief press release schooling Senator Reid.
CHICAGO - December 8, 2009: The following statement was released today by Rev. Isaac C. Hayes, the GOP nominee for Congress in IL-2, and opponent of . (D-Ill.) in response to (D-Nev) comparing opponents of heath care reform to opponents of the emancipation of slaves:
“Harry Reid’s rush to use race in the health care debate is exactly why we should not rush this bill” said Hayes. “History reveals that it was Mr. Reid’s Party that opposed the emancipation of slaves and the that was the vanguard of freedom. A brief review of history will record the abolishing slavery and the Republican Caucus voting in a larger percentage for Civil Rights legislation than their Democratic counterparts. It is quite evident Mr. Reid has not read a history book or the bill he wants to force through.”
Isaac Hayes is the real deal, a candidate all Americans should be supporting in his fight against Jesse Jackson Jr., though considering the district is one of the most Democratic in the state, it leaves little room for a good Republican to be elected. However, I can feel a tide turning in America, perhaps Isaac Hayes is apart of that tide. Isaac Hayes was interviewed two months ago by a conservative website.
Senator Reid belongs to the political party of oppression.
Senator Reid belongs to the political party of hate.
Senator Reid belongs to the political party of slavery.
Senator Reid belongs to the political party of weakness.
Senator Reid belongs to the political party that is pushing the destruction of the greatest health care system in the world, along with Capitalism, freedom, the United States Constitution, while using bribes, payoffs, and threats to pass a health care plan no-one wants.
My fellow Conservatives, we must work to defeat Senator Reid next election, and we must work to promote great Republicans such as Isaac Hayes.

Political correctness is on the move, meaning the forces of tradition, freedom, and common sense need to unite for yet another fight. The next target of political correctness - the official name of the state of Rhode Island, which is Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. In a stunning case of ignorance, racebaiters and political correctness hacks are claiming the official name of Rhode Island, which includes the word "plantations" is insulting and a black mark on the state in regards to slavery.
There is just one problem with the claims, the original name of Rhode Island, was Providence Plantations as named by Roger Williams, with Providence in regards to divine providence, and Plantations in regards to the British term for colonies. After internal problems within Providence Plantations, Roger Williams was able to unite the colony and applied for a charter, with the revised named of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.
The charter was issued to the "Incorporation of Providence Plantations in the Narragansett Bay in New England." It gave the people power to govern themselves, but was simply a charter of incorporation and contained no land grant.2 The town of Warwick had now been founded, and the four towns were united under the new charter. But the union was short-lived. Coddington, in 1648, obtained a separate charter for Portsmouth and Newport. But this action was not satisfactory, and after a bitter quarrel of several years the four towns were again united under the charter secured by Williams.
After the Restoration, however, this charter granted by Parliament was not considered valid, and in 1663 Roger Williams secured from Charles II a second charter for "Rhode Island and Providence Plantations," which confirmed the privileges granted by the first, made a land grant, and provided that no one be molested "for any difference in opinion in matters of religion.
Even with the facts easily at hand, political correctness is still roaring towards the destruction of the official name of Rhode Island, which has been in place for over 300 years. Meaning the heritage of Rhode Island, the tradition of their longstanding name, and freedom itself will be on the ballot next year, as voters will have the opportunity to either defeat or appease political correctness, and incorrect facts.
William Jacobson, the well known blogger who operates Legal Insurrection, opined on this upcoming situation just last month, and provided this article when answering an email requesting comment.
My home state of Rhode Island is quirky place. We still celebrate Victory Over Japan Day in August, although the name was changed to VJ Day and then to Victory Day, in a nod to political correctness. Now there is a move afoot to change the name of the state for similar reasons.
The official name of Rhode Island is "State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations." Voters will have a chance in 2010 to remove the reference to "Providence Plantations" as part of a referendum pushed by advocates who argue that the reference to "plantations" is insensitive to blacks and perpetuates a racist image.
Mr.Jacobson believes the referendum will fail, however, liberalism as evil as it is, never takes a minute off from its destructive agenda, and neither should we. The advocates of this political neutering of Rhode Island's official name are idiots, regardless of their claims, because the historic name has nothing to do with slavery and does not perpetuate a racist image with a sane individual.
This is not just a issue for Rhode Island, it has national implications. If we lose this fight in Rhode Island, to where the non-racist official name of a individual state is smeared and destructed because of political correctness, what will occur in the other 49 states across America? Will all names that have one reference to race, slavery, or the word "plantations" be targeted for execution?
I hope not, for the sake of freedom, tradition, and heritage. The Founders warned us about the meanings of words being changed, well........we are now at a point where the meanings and historic value of words are being manipulated or incorrectly presented as to fit the political agenda of political correctness.
Dangerous times indeed.
Also, if plantations is causing folks to have a racist image of Rhode Island, then why are the political correctness fools going after providence at the same time? This has nothing to do with race, its about the destruction of our heritage, religious and otherwise.

The day that I was waiting for has finally come. North Korea has finally designed the perfect set of jeans and is selling them-- unfortunately we can't get them in the United States. However, if you'd like, you can run over to Sweden and pick me up a pair.
Just look for the "Noko" label.
There's only 1,100! Man, we've got to buy them while they're out.
"There is a political gap, there is a mental gap, and there is an economic gap," said Jacob Astrom, one of three Swedish advertising executives behind the project. "All contacts with the country are difficult and remain so to this day."
The idea for the project was born out of curiosity for North Korea, which has grown increasingly isolated in recent years under Western criticism of itsand nuclear ambitions.
"The reason we did this was to come closer to a country that was very difficult to get into contact with," Astrom said.
North Korea, a country better known for its reclusive nature than, rarely allows outsiders within its borders and has virtually no trade or diplomatic relations with most Western countries. , one of only seven countries to have an embassy in North Korea, is an exception.
But the process of agreeing a deal to produce just 1,100 pairs of jeans -- the first ever produced by the country, according to the founders -- often proved baffling. E-mails vanished into a void and communications were strained.
By the way, is it just me, or are the jeans likely made up of human/dog hair and the skin of political prisoners?
Conditions in the War of Afghanistan are not great, we need an Iraqi like surge to defeat the forces of evil in Afghanistan, and to claim victory. Though, we have helped the Nation of Afghanistan over the past eight years, our mission of defeating the forces of evil which are our enemy, needs to be forced into hyper drive.
According to our General's on the ground, we need 40,000 to 60,000 additional troops on the ground in Afghanistan. Simple enough.
Reasoning of an insane individual :
We need to send 10,000 troops less then what we need, and push welfare instead of warfare.
Reasoning of a sane individual :
Listen to our Generals, send in 40,000 to 60,000 additional troops, kill all of the forces of evil, and win the war.
The reality is, the insane individual is the Commander in Chief of America as it stands, meaning we are not doing what needs to be done, to win this war. I want to win this war, not end it. What is in ending the war, if we don't win the war?

Jackie Seal is the next teen Conservative wonder in the movement, blogosphere, and even a few Conservative bloggers are hoping she dates their Sons..... Moving on, Ms.Seal was standing on line in Grand Rapids Michigan, a diehard fan of Sarah Palin, hoping to get her copy of Going Rogue autographed by her idol. Well, a few trolls from MSNBC, that call themselves reporters, we're going through the crowd looking for Palinites to interview, well along came Jackie, and the ambush which would follow.
I knew I was walking into hot water with MSNBC- thought I was prepared….Seconds later I met her… One of the many faces of liberal media bias. She asked me my name and then before going on air asked me why I liked Sarah Palin, I repeated what I told the NYT reporter. Norah didn’t seem to like that much. So what did she do? I mean she couldn’t ask me that question on television, heaven forbid her not have a biting response.. I noticed her look down at my shirt then, she turned around blackberry in hand spoke to a man, thumbs tapping the blackberry (I don’t remember if she called or not, she may have. But she was on her blackberry), then jotted down a quick note. Little did I know that note would be used against me. She told us she’d be walking up to us. You know like she just stumbled upon us. The shot began… I kept telling myself answer her question well, don’t freak out. Well, I thought she’d ask me the same question. She asked the man beside me (who by the way is NOT my dad) the same question she had before we went on air. Myself on the other hand, not the same story. She had me read my shirt and then proceeded to ask me “Did you know Sarah Palin supported the bailout” to be 100% honest I was like, are you kidding me? She is trying to use my shirt against me. I was so shocked by the craftiness she had that I was truly stumped. I asked her where she got her fact and she read her little note. Then she asked me what I liked about Sarah, and I talked about the Constitution. Immediately after the interview I said to my dad “Oh man, I have so many great responses now about my shirt” I could have said, well my shirt doesn’t say anything about Sarah Palin supporting the bailout or “Hey Norah, have you read the book? She talks about how during her debate prep she was handed a list of note cards that had questions and ‘non-answers’” Of course they told Sarah Palin to support everything McCain did. Call me crazy but it would have looked pretty bad had Sarah Palin been against something John McCain was against while they were running together. Norah also claims I told her I voted (on her twitter). That is not true. She never asked my age or if I voted. I’m 17 I couldn’t have voted…and I don’t live in an ACORN district so I didn’t have a chance to even register illegally. Making that statement by Norah completely false.
Ms.Seal is quite the impressive heroine in the Conservative movement, as she not only stood strong for Sarah Palin, a beloved figure in the movement, she also stood strong against the elites at MSNBC, who would embarrasses a seventeen year old just to make a point, look who was embarrassed.
Please visit her blog at http://www.redwhiteandconservative.wordpress.com/ , I have a feeling we will be hearing from Ms.Seal more in the future, perhaps one day she can reform the state of Michigan, as her idol did in Alaska.
Also, R.S. McCain has two sons available for immediate marriage, http://rsmccain.blogspot.com/2009/11/jackie-seal-american-hero.html , so the choice is all yours Ms.Seal, considering I am a product of homeschooling, those kids are probably smart.

In looking at the voting records and personal feelings of some of the Democrats in the Senate, it can be shown that the following are most likely to vote against the health care plan. Many of these have different reasons, but they could hold the key (or the lock) to passing the bill.
Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA)
Already has over $100 million in the bill for state funding in her pocket for voting yes. While this may certainly seem attractive, it could also be seen as back-door corruption. If the issue gets hot enough, she might have to back off or be seen as a pork guzzler.
Sen. Ben Nelson (D-NE)
Nelson is from one of the reddest states in the Union, and while well-liked, he could be facing a large backlash for his vote. Not only this, he could ruin the chances for other Democrats seeking Nebraska office. Nelson has already stated that he is against a public option being run by the feds and wants to see it done by the states. His pro-life stance could also cause him to vote against a bill which could pay for abortions. Nelson even said: "I don't want a big-government, Washington-run operation that would undermine the ... private insurance that 200 million Americans now have,"
Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN)
Bayh is a moderate from a state which gave George W. Bush 60% in 2004. Even though President Obama narrowly won the state last year, the fading of Obamamania and smaller turnout could destroy other Dems. Bayh voted for debate, but has expressed doubt about the bill.
Blanche Lincoln (D-AR)
A formerly relatively unknown Senator from Arkansas she faces an uphill battle no matter what she does. She's already seeing opponents nearly tying her, while polls suggest that if she votes yes on the bill, she might as well retire. She has also threatened a filibuster against the bill despite voting to debate.
Bernie Sanders (Socialist-VT)
One of only two independents in the Senate, you might be surprised to see Sanders' name. However, the Vermont Socialist has stated that he would vote down a health care bill that did not include the public option. He has also stated that his support for the bill is "in no ways guaranteed."
Sherrod Brown (D-OH)
Brown, elected in the Democratic wave of 2006, is giving similar warnings as Sanders. Brown, whose term is not up next year, is worried that the Democrats have already given up enough to the Republicans and moderate Democrats.
Olympia Snowe (R-ME)
One of the two liberal Republicans elected to the Senate from Maine, Snowe has signaled that she will likely vote for President Obama's health care plan. There have been signs, however, that conservatives in the party want to challenge the Senator-- and voting yes could cause this to happen. This could even create a situation where Snowe changes parties.
Joe Lieberman (I-CT)
The Independent Democrat has bucked the party's trends since 2002, and looks like he might be voting against the bill. Lieberman, who might not run for reelection in 2012, may not care if the left wing of his party challenged him again. Lieberman has also stated that he opposes a public option. Fearing an increasing deficit, Lieberman may vote no.
Susan Collins (R-ME)
Collins appears to have no major qualms with the substance of the bill, but may wind up voting no because the bill as presented may not lower overall medical costs.
All of these Senators, with the exception of Lieberman and Nelson will likely vote yes. Even Lincoln appears to please the party apparatus and looks unlikely to win in 2010 anyway.

Last weekend, I warned about the dangers of Republican candidates focusing on Iowa during the 2012 Presidential primaries, as Iowa has become a reliable state for Democrats, and if a Republican wants to win the nomination, their focus needs to be directed towards the Southern and Western United States.
When the discussion shifts into a possible Sarah Palin run for the Republican nomination, she needs to focus on South Carolina, she needs to direct attention to the Southern states, and resources towards the Western states. Remember, Mike Huckabee has a solid base in the South, and Mitt Romney has a solid base in the West, Sarah Palin needs to battle both of them in both of these all important areas.
To focus too much time or money into Iowa is a blatant waste of resources, South Carolina will be the promise land for either Huckabee or Palin across the South, Iowa holds no leverage, and New Hampshire will go to the liberalist of candidates, which in a Palin-Huckabee-Romney scenario would be Romney.
If I was preparing for a 2012 blitzkrieg during the primaries, I would not be focusing on Iowa, I would be focusing on South Carolina, Florida, the South in general, and the West, those are the states Sarah Palin would need in order to win the nomination, Iowa would drain resources out of a 50 state battle.

Senator Lieberman would be the most liberal member of the Republican caucus, however, he would be a member we could depend on in regards to health care, national defense, and other issues. While Senator Lieberman would 85% of the time vote with Democrats on most domestic issues, he would be a strong opponent of weakening our national defense, and he causes hatred in progressive circles which Republicans can't match.
I am proposing that Senator Lieberman caucus with the Republicans, as though he has numerous Democratic leanings, he also has Conservative streaks which fit into his "Independent" label, however, he is the most hated member of the Democratic caucus, and it was a miracle he was not punished last year for supporting McCain, and Palin.
Senator Lieberman has become one of our largest allies in fighting against the government takeover of health care, a more reliable opponent of the government option then Senator Snowe, however, Lieberman has also put his political career and soul on the line, his Chairmanship of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs could be revoked, and though the help of Republicans helped to secure his victory in 2006, staunch Democrat supporters could bail from his campaign in 2012.
With all of this in mind, Senator Lieberman knows he will face the consequences for his opposition to current Democrat plans in regards to health care, however, will Senator Lieberman remain in the Democratic caucus, or will he join the Republican caucus, and at the least provide for a symbolic filibuster.
After the 1994 congressional elections, Senator Shelby became a Republican. After we hopefully defeat the Democratic health care plans, will we gain a Senator? Who knows, perhaps history will repeat itself.

Over the weekend, the Conservative blogosphere has pounced on the "bow seen round the world", a photograph of the supposed Commander in Chief bowing to the Emperor of Japan, something no other American President or world leader for that fact, has ever done.
This Obama "bow", is not only a continued indicator of Obama's weakness as a President, and his sick admiration for world leaders. This is the new United States of America as Obama views it, we are no longer a Nation that stands proudly before the rest of the world, America now is humbled before the rest of the world, a mentality no President has ever had or wanted during the glorious 233 years as a Nation.
Obama has slandered the Nation, he was elected to lead across the world. Obama is pushing legislation which will destroy our freedoms and the greatest economic system in the world. Obama is weakening our national defense to the levels of European defense, while at the same time risking the lives of our European allies. Obama does not believe in American execptionalism, a belief that America's freedoms, successes, and our standing as the lone superpower is because of our founding in a strong Constitution, birthed in freedom, along with a strong Capitalistic system.
In regards to International politics, Obama has ignored the calls of our Generals and troops who need backup in Afghanistan, Obama has ignored the cry of freedom from Iran and Honduras, Obama has spit on our allies, while opening arms to our enemies. Obama does not believe in a strong America, as he is even cutting future NASA missions, because of a cost of 30 billion dollars, when he has added trillions to our debt in ten months.
As in the eyes and feelings of Obama, America is being pushed from a proud, strong, successful Nation to a humble, weak, failure of a Nation. The Obama bow represents more then a weak President, it represents the downfall of America herself, a downfall we must correct with the 2010 elections just around the corner.

While we should always be cautious of Greeks bearing gifts, there is a movement across the United States of America, in which moderate Democrats are becoming Republicans, leaving the Democrat party they feel is just to liberal. While Conservative Republicans have felt this way for years, it appears our new found friends are beginning to smell the roses, with the help of Barack Obama.
I have two reports upcoming of elected officials or activists who are either leaving the party, or are considering leaving the party, because of the radical leftward tilt of the party, associated heavily with the actions of the supposed Commander in Chief.
Since May of last year, Democrats have engaged in one crazy, destructive scheme after another, from the reckless Trillion Dollar “Stimulus” spending that was rammed through without even being read by voting members of Congress to the insane economy-killing Cap & Tax nonsense and the deranged takeover of 1/6 of our economy in the Utopiacare debacle.
In regards to all of the above, we’ve consistently felt that after Democrats’ defeat in the 2010 midterms and Dr. Utopia’s defeat in 2012, that moderate Democrats would take back the party and move everything back to the center, where we think the party belongs.
But, honestly, we are so disgusted by the Muslim apologists on the Left that we don’t know if we can continue being Democrats anymore — that we need to accept the fact that we are indeed Independents now.
Independents who support the Clintons and their allies, but no longer moderate Democrats, as the Democrat Party has gone so far to the left, and resides now in such lunacy, that there’s no room for us moderates anymore.
Hillary supporters are even questioning their status as members of the Democrat party.
State GOP Chairman Brad White opens the press conference and makes reference to Republican victories in New Jersey and Virginia as an impetus for the switch of the elected officials. Says White, Barack Obama "has lost his luster."
Those switching include the local District Judge (representing 4 Counties), the Simpson County Sheriff, Constable and an Alderman. Also switching is 1 of the 5 County Supervisors, now giving the GOP the majority 3-to-2.
Since the NJ and VA election victories for the Republican Party last week, at least 20 Democrat elected officials in Texas and North Carolina, including 1 State Representative have switched to the GOP.
The political blog, Libertarian Republican, has done an amazing job of covering Democratic defections to the Republican party, especially in the Southern United States.
While I do not see any major defections such as what Senator Shelby or Congressman Goode did in the aftermath of the 1994 elections and a Liberal agenda of Bill Clinton, Democrats are beginning to question their party of choice, especially in the Southern United States, an area that has a large mixture of both Conservative Republicans and Conservative Democrats, however, there are those who are beginning to understand a cold hard reality, a vote for any Democrat....is a vote for Liberalism.
Let the 2010 Conservative Republican revolution begin!
P.S. Despite the gains we are making with Southern Democrats, strong showings in elections nationwide, I still fear our biggest hindrance will be Libertarians.....

Matthew Berry, a former Clerk for Justice Clarence Thomas, has launched an exploratory committee into a possible run against Democratic Congressman Jim Moran in Virginia's 8th congressional district. Matthew Berry, a strong Conservative Republican on most issues, would be challenging a radical leftist who has compared Republicans to the "Taliban", and just yesterday called those who oppose bringing terrorists into the country for civilian trials "un-american".
While Mr.Berry is not officially a declared candidate for the Republican nomination, he has agreed to answer some questions for a brief email interview, however, I felt it would be proper to include you the loyal readers to email me at email@example.com in this interview, thus if you have any questions you would like to ask Mr.Berry in regards to his stance on the issues, his possible congressional campaign, etc. please post a comment with your question.
All questions must be in by 7PM tonight, as I plan on sending Mr.Berry the questions at that time.

Nothing would be more fitting then to discuss Veterans and the second amendment on this Veterans day, because without Veterans fighting for our freedoms across the world, there would be no second amendment right, and there would be no Constitutional rights.
Congressman Dennis Rehberg (R - Montana) introduced the Veterans Heritage Firearms Act of 2009 on January ninth, the purpose of the legislation is to create a 90-day amnesty period which will allow for Veterans, and their families to register old firearms, which then can be kept in the family or donated to private museums, the law relates to firearms which soldiers obtained between June 26th, 1934 and October 31st 1968. As it stands one would be prosecuted for having these firearms right now, however, these important weapons represent a time in history, a Veterans trophy, and this legislation would allow their families and private museums to proudly display that history.
The legislation in question in H.R. 442, since February when it was referred to the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security, not one action has been taken on this legislation, legislation which would allow for American heritage via the firearms our Veterans have fought with or owned to be preserved forever.
I would encourage all who read this, to contact their local representative in hopes of reaching 218 co-sponsors for this legislation, as it stands 133 Representatives are in support of this legislation, we should work hard to preserve our heritage, and for Veteran's family members to hold on to this heritage without government intervention or fear of prosecution.

The terrorist attacks in Fort Hood last week were a horrific reminder that the nation is not safe and that the heroism of American soldiers was tested on American soil. Unfortunately, it shows that the government is becoming increasingly unable to catch potential terrorist attacks.
Hasan was a lone gunman, making the shooting far less likely to catch before it actually occurred. However, the FBI had significant evidence of Hasan's radical views and the fact that he contacted al Qaeda associates. He was in contact with the Imam of the 9/11 hijackers! What!? We knew about this and we didn't even question the guy? We didn't alert security on the base? We have a Major-- with intelligence clearances and access to automatic weapons. He could have been a mole for al Qaeda, a planner, or-- a shooter.
One of the problems that allowed 9/11 to happen was not repeated. We found out ahead of time-- we got the intelligence we needed. However, what was not there was the mentality to stop it.
The policies of the Obama Administration telling intelligence agencies to be careful about what they do regarding terrorism could have prevented the FBI from tackling the issue. Perhaps concerns about being called "anti-Muslim" prevented an FBI agent from busting the guy. Perhaps they were concerned about being called overzealous.
Part of this stems out of the prosecution of the CIA agents who interrogated al Qaeda terrorists after the September 11th attacks. Obama made it clear that he would have two policies. One: he would allow many of the Bush security surveillance programs to continue, breaking his campaign promises. In order to please his rabid left-wing base, he decided to prosecute the CIA and make it so intelligence gathered would not be acted upon.
This policy is idiotic and fatal. We must remember that the security of our country trumps politics. If only the White House knew that.

In the aftermath of last night's vote in the House of Representatives in regards to health care, the Conservative blogosphere has been nitpicking at who supported the bill and who opposed the bill, even I joined the chaos of non-important examination of whom did what.
This goes deeper than what Democrat supported the legislation and what Democrat opposed the legislation; we need to throw all Democrats out of the House of Representatives. Legislation which will put our entire life in control of the government from beginning to the end should never be discussed, let alone voted on.
Electing Democrats = Loss of Freedom. All Democrats are guilty for the health care legislation passing the House of Representatives last night, as all of them voted for Nancy Pelosi to be Speaker of the House, and all of them are members of a super majority which opposes freedom in most if not all aspects.
We need to defeat as many Democrats as possible next year, because a Republican controlled Congress does not even discuss the thought of complete control over our lives, only a Democrat controlled Congress....would consider the thought, and then push that thought into reality on a Saturday evening.
Let it begin with the 14 supposed "blue dog" Democrats who voted for the legislation in Republican districts, then continue the Democrat slaughter from the highest points of Maine, to the border in Texas, as we cannot allow tyranny to run Congress any longer, and regardless of what you are told, Democrats enslave, whether through regulation, chains or control.....
Let the Conservative Republican revolution of 2010 begin!

Over the past few months, I have been testing the waters with numerous articles advocating Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina) as a possible candidate for the Republican nomination to be our Presidential candidate in under three years. The response from readers of this blog, and folks who ran upon the articles that I had written, has been amazing.
I have received at least three emails asking me what can I do? How can we start a draft Senator DeMint for President 2012 organization? Will this lead into a Nation-wide third party movement? Not to mention numerous comments in support of Senator DeMint, and this poll in which 86% of respondents either support DeMint for President or might support DeMint for President - http://righthandedpitcher.blogspot.com/2009/10/vote-in-our-poll-would-you-support-jim.html .
Senator DeMint has become the most beloved United States Senator in the Conservative movement over the past several months, as the Conservative blogosphere has touted his actions, his comments have annoyed liberals like only a true threat could, and his devotion to liberty does not take into account whether or not his stance is popular.
The grassroots support for a possible Senator DeMint campaign for President is there, however, before I commit to anything in regards to 2012, I would like to know if my fellow Americans are prepared to work hard for a DeMint campaign, that is if we can convince him to run for the Republican nomination, that itself might be the hardest part.
While we would not have the numbers of the Sarah Palin or the Mike Huckabee for President movements, I believe our dedication could not be matched. Senator DeMint is a true American patriot, while I am not taking away from Sarah Palin or Mike Huckabee, Senator DeMint has been on the front lines for the past year, he has been attacked, however, this strong United States Senator from South Carolina is relentless.
So, I ask oncemore, if you like the sound of a Senator DeMint for President in 2012, please leave a comment in this article, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org , I believe we have a winning candidate, however, only time will tell.

David Harmer, the Republican candidate for Congress in California's special election in their 10th congressional election, does have a chance of winning this election today. While running in a district which has not elected a Republican in decades, their last Congresswoman easily claimed victory with near 70% of the vote, and it is rated D+11, does not seem possible.
Then again, 2009 has not been a normal election year, as we have two interesting Gubernatorial elections on the eastern seaboard, a special congressional election which has the Nation watching in Upstate New York, and the future of the Conservative movement, the Republican party, perhaps even America herself is on the line.
David Harmer is a Conservative Republican businessman, who is concerned with growing deficits, the government attempting to takeover health care, and the threat from Iran & North Korea having nuclear weapons. While the Democratic candidate is a blood sucking poli-tick who is obsessed with elected office, is as liberal as they come, and favors destroying the greatest health care system in the world. Seems like the normal Democrat from California, however, this is not a normal election.
According to a poll released last week, Democrat Lt.Governor John Garamendi is leading Republican David Harmer by a 50-40% margin, with 6% supporting third party candidates, and another 4% are unsure. While 40% of the vote would be something to tout in this congressional district alone, victory can be achieved.
First, the polling methodology is incorrect, as it questioned Republicans as 32% of all respondents, while Republicans made up 34.5% of those who voted in the primary, and historically Republicans tend to show up in larger numbers compared to their share of the registration or the last congressional election in regards to special elections.
Second, David Harmer can win this election if he gets every Republican voter out to the polls, if he makes a last minute appeal to Independents in the district in regards to health care, and if Democrats are a depressed vote this election. While Conservatism has momentum across America in regards to opposing fiscal socialism, will that result in electing fiscal conservatives to Congress? That is yet to be seen.
Third, 45% of all voters aged 18-34 support David Harmer's campaign, while younger voters have historically been unreliable to Republican campaigns, if Harmer can get the youngsters out in this election, and pray for senior citizens to have a strong presence in this election, it could be close.
Besides the fact David Harmer is running a brilliant campaign, he has done well in polling, and Conservatives and Republicans alike are fired up across the Nation, he needs a high voter turnout from the Republican party, a depressed turnout from Democrats, he needs a last minute appeal to Independents, he needs youngsters and senior citizens to come out strong for his campaign, and he needs a little bit of luck.
David Harmer can win this election, please tell all who you know in California's 10th congressional district to support David Harmer for Congress! It is time to stop sitting on the bench, and strong crowding the polls.
Also, if you write on a political blog and you are reading this, please post a message to your readers requesting that they to tell everyone they know in California's 10th congressional district to vote for David Harmer! Every vote counts!

What has happened to common sense? According to WGY and Fox News, an Honor Student at upstate New York's Lansingburgh High School, Matthew Whalen, has been suspended for twenty days for having a two-inch pocket knife in a locked kit in his car.
Accoding to Fox:
Lansingburgh High has a zero-tolerance policy, and when school officials discovered that Whalen kept his knife locked in his car, he says, they suspended him for five days -- and then tacked on an additional 15 after a hearing.
Let me point some things out: one, Whalen has never been in trouble with the law. Two, he is an honor student in good standing. Three, he has gone through basic training for the military. Four, he is credited with saving a person's life. Five, he is an Eagle Scout. In other words, he is not a trouble student and there seems that nothing warranted the search of his locked car.
More from Fox:
Whalen said he doesn't know who might have said he was carrying a knife, but he was open with school officials.
"And they said, 'Do you own a knife?' I said, 'Yes, I'm a soldier and an Eagle Scout -- I own a knife.'
"And they were like, 'Well, is it in your car or anything?' And I told them, 'Yeah, it's in my car right now.'
"And they asked me to show it to them. I didn't realize it was going to be a problem. I knew it wasn't illegal -- my police chief grandfather gave the knife to me."
This sort of thing is disgusting, really. Clearly this kind of over-policing and Zero Tolerance is ridiculous. There is some good news, however, Whalen has hired a lawyer to defend him.

Via RealClearWorld comes this article from the Hindu. India is a fairly pro-American nation, and it serves to reason that this article is written by a Russian. Some of its funnier parts are:
The American ideology produces a sublimated version, so to say, of human equality. It stresses that lineage, education, ethnicity and so on do not matter in making one a full-fledged member of the community or a citizen of the world. As the American Dream has it, anyone can get rich, become President…
Such democracy brings unexpected fruits — it makes ordinary Americans conceited, and totally unlike, say, Western Europeans in terms of culture and education.
So if I'm reading this correctly, it would be more...desirable... to have a system where ethnicity automatically puts a person into their place in life. Is it also better to tell children that they can't be anything but simple (stupid) workers?
It can be assumed that the pressure of mass culture that is eroding the traditional culture was the root cause of the tragedy of 9/11.
And don't forget that our kindness to immigrants has helped us become a melting pot which makes us stronger. Or according to the article, a horrible, horrible mess:
The U.S. has been from the start a land of immigrants, be they first-generation or tenth-generation. A population gathered from every part of the world gives it economic dynamism but is also a problem that whips up global anti-Americanism.
If this is why some of the world dislikes us, I think that we're doing something right.
at 4:04 PM
I'm going to say this straight out: if the President does not pass his Health Care Plan soon, the rest of his time in office will be a lame duck. That said, this article is not just bashing Obama, but actual facts that you can look up yourself. If you want to lambaste him, or add to the list, do so in the comments, they are always welcome.
This list is primarily campaign promises that he failed to live up to.
What the President has failed to do (which he promised):
1. Prevent unemployment from breaking 8.0%.
The President assured the American public that if his Stimulus Plan was passed, unemployment would not rise above 8%. Unfortunately, that promise eventually turned out to be a failure, and the unemployment rate now stands at 9.5%.
2. Allow Americans to view new bills five days before going to vote.
If you remember, the President said that, with his election, there would be a new era of transparency in the government, allowing voters to read bills at least five days before they went to vote. Unfortunately, the transparency he must of been referring to was his own. The failure of this came when he rammed the Stimulus Bill through the Legislative Branch, putting the bill in print less than a day before it was to be voted on.
3. 'There is no Pork in the Stimulus Bill.'
Well, I don't even think I need to show you that this has been a failed promise. That's how badly this promise failed.
4. Gitmo will be closed as early as the first week of his Presidency.
CNN reported that the President planned to closed the much lamented (on the left) Guantanamo Bay prison. Guess what? Guantanamo is still open to this day because the President had no, snicker, exit strategy, i.e. he had no idea where to send the terrorists after the base was closed. Fail.
5. Lower racial tension in the United States.
The President assured voters that he would work very hard to bring people of different backgrounds together. While this is a noble cause, the President utterly failed when he stuck his nose into the arrest of Professor Henry Gates, saying that the officers acted "stupidly." This led to a crap-storm in the media, and the President later gave a pseudo-apology.
Ah, I'm getting bored with all of these broken promises, so maybe I'll continue this some other time.

When the former Speaker of the House endorsed "Dede" Scozzafava's campaign in New York's special congressional election in New York's 23rd congressional district, he did not only endorse the positions of Scozzafava, who is as radical as them come in Republican clothing, he has endorsed everything Scozzafava has surrounded herself with, whether or not he meant to.
When Newt Gingrich endorsed Scozzafava, he endorsed some of the most radical positions one candidate could take in the United States of America, while I do not question Newt's Conservatism, I do question his wisdom and poor choice in judgement, as Mr.Gingrich is not standing for the Republican party, he is standing for Newt Gingrich.
Mr.Gingrich has now endorsed a candidate who is against the secret ballot in unionization elections, and supports increased unionization in the American business place.
Mr.Gingrich has now endorsed a candidate who is radical enough on abortion to receive a planned parenthood award, which she received with glee and joy.
Mr.Gingrich has now endorsed a candidate who has the support of the New York State United Teachers, an organization which opposes the supposed "education reforms" that Mr.Gingrich so believes in.
Mr.Gingrich has now endorsed a candidate who has been endorsed by the radical leftist Daily Kos political blog, a blog which is endorsing Scozzafava because she is the most liberal candidate.
Mr.Gingrich has now endorsed a candidate who has been endorsed by the ACORN associated "Working Families Party" several times, not to mention the "WISH list" has also endorsed Scozzafava, an organization devoted to electing "anti-life" Republican women to Congress.
Mr.Gingrich has now endorsed a candidate who supports the Obama stimulus package, something all 178 Republicans in the House of Representatives opposed.
Mr.Gingrich has now endorsed a candidate who is to the left of Congressman Castle of Delaware, Congressman Cao of Louisiana, and the former Connecticut Congressman Rob Simmons, all of which are amongst the most leftist Republicans elected to Congress.
Mr.Gingrich, you really expect our support when you attempt to gain the Republican nomination in 2012? When you will not even lend Conservatism and the Conservatives who espouse those views now? Doug Hoffman is the real Conservative Republican in this election, it is about hightime you realize that.

Hollywood, the land of endless examples of what happens when you cast your lot with a bunch of deranged liberal lunatics, essentially you turn into an immoral piece of trash who supports a child rapist like Roman Polanski. Hollywood is a place where dreams are made true, literally. The trash Hollywood produces is becoming so bad, that more Americans are staying home and catching a good nights worth of sleep.
Hollywood and politics is another reason why to avoid a career in this vile town, as if you believe in freedom, life, the second amendment, capitalism, conservatism, or even that taxes should be low on the American populace, you should be prepared to have your career cut short, regardless of how talented an actor or actress you have become. Not to mention Hollywood is not like the rest of the Nation in terms of ideology, 40% of all actors and actresses are not Conservatives, you would be lucky to find just 10%.
Oh, and if you hate dictators and dictatorships, Hollywood is not the place for you. Hollywood celebrities are often visiting their dictator friends in Cuba and other South American hell holes, and if you oppose their environmentalist wacko views, you are a fascist, even though they are the ones rubbing elbows with the fascists.
Enough. Why the hell am I writing this article? We already know Hollywood is literally the scum of the earth, except for Spider man movies. The reason, is because of the news that has come out of Hollywood today, see Sean Penn's good pal, Hugo Chavez, is going to allow his American traitor/friend make a film in the authoritarian land.
President Hugo Chavez said he met privately with actor Sean Penn on Wednesday, and that the Oscar-winning celebrity may film a movie in Venezuela.
Penn may shoot a film based on a novel by Cuban writer Alejo Carpentier, which is set largely in the jungle along Venezuela's southern Orinoco river, Chavez said. He appeared to be referring to Carpentier's 1953 novel, "The Lost Steps," about an American anthropologist and composer's journey into the jungle region
If an American actor had done this during World War II, they would have been branded a traitor, yet today, they are praised for meeting with dictators who steal peoples lives, monies, and freedoms.

Former Keller Aide Explains Grayson's 2008 Win
Alan Grayson has swiftly become one of the most noticeable members of the 111th Congress. The Florida Democrat narrowly beat his Republican challenger, Ric Keller in the 2008 race for the Congressional seat. Grayson was notable in that he funded his own campaign with personal funds.
Congressman Grayson has described himself as a "proud progressive" and has been listed on MoveOn.org's list of the most influential members of the Democratic Party. Grayson first made waves in September by stating that the Republican response to the pending health care legislation was for people to "die quickly."
Grayson also called Fox News an enemy of the United States and called Linda Robertson, an aide to Federal Reserve Chief Ben Bernanke and former Enron lobbyist a "K-Street whore." Grayson has not retracted the statements and is coming under intense scrutiny from conservative media sources.
With Grayson's erratic behavior has also been seen as a growing embarrassment to the Democratic establishment. New York Congressman Anthony Weiner was quoted by Politico as saying that his colleague was "one fry short of a happy meal." Other Democrats, including New Jersey Rep Bill Pascrell have criticized Grayson's outlandish behavior.
After Grayson's latest outburst became public, former Keller aide Johann Kipling told the Saint Petersburg Times that the 2008 Keller campaign had unearthed curious inconsistencies in Grayson's professional career.
Kipling's statements were chronicled in an interview set to be released on November 5. Kipling stated that while Grayson touted that he was a respected economist he had actually failed an economics course in his sophomore year. In addition, some of Grayson's senior papers were accused of widespread plagiarism.
In addition, Kipling stated that Grayson's campaign had a glaring omission. During 1988, when Grayson had just turned thirty and while working for the Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson law firm, he spent four days in the Psychiatric Institute of Washington. What the cause of this stay was is yet unclear, although testimony from co-workers suggests that Grayson was extremely combative with fellow employees, including slapping a female intern in the face. Grayson was released after PIW doctors declared him "not to be a threat to the public."
Asked why the Keller campaign did not release this information, Kipling stated that it was the decision of Keller himself. Keller was a four-term Congressman before the insurgent Grayson captured 52% of the vote in 2008.
While some claim that Conservative Republicans want to purge the party of all moderates & liberals who are present in the party, which is 100% incorrect, as we want a party which is overwhelmingly Conservative, however, in some areas of the country we will accept our moderate Republican counterparts with open arms.
Those same idiots forget to mention that we do like some "moderate" Republicans.
Take for example Republican Congressman Joseph Cao (pronounced GOW for those that did not read this press release) who defeated the corrupt Democrat Congressman William "cold cash" Jefferson in Louisiana's second congressional district, and now represents the district in the House of Representatives. While Congressman Cao has only voted with Republicans 77% of time, including votes against the stimulus package, " cap & tax" legislation, and his opposition to the health care legislation in Congress, Cao has become the "Moderate" darling of the Conservative blogosphere.
How could this be? According to the Main Stream Media, Liberal Democrats, and even some Republicans, all Conservative Republicans and the blogosphere which we belong to, just hate all moderate Republicans who have ever been elected to Congress, or born for that matter. Well, Congressman Cao has received our support for numerous reasons.
1.Congressman Cao defeated the corrupt William "cold cash" Jefferson, and Cao is the only Republican who can win in this district. Not to mention, he is just a regular American attempting to help in the United States Congress.
2.Congressman Cao is a staunch opponent to abortion, which is why he joined the Republican party in the first place.
3.Congressman Cao opposes the current health care legislation in the United States House of Representatives because it will contain abortion in the bill, even though he knows he will probably lose his campaign all because of his personal values. As Cao later said, "but I have to live with myself, and I always reflect on the phrase of the New Testament, ‘How does it profit a man’s life to gain the world but to lose his soul.".
Now, Congressman Cao is back in the news, as he joins the campaign in support of Bob McDonnell's Gubernatorial bid in Virginia, hoping to bring Vietnamese-Americans out to the polls on Election day, in support of Bob McDonnell, a fine Conservative Republican who leads his Democratic opponent by double digits with one week to election day.
Congressman Cao is my favorite Moderate Republican, so to those that say we Conservatives do not like our Moderate brothers in the Republican party, why don't you just shut up, and do the world a favor.

According to a new poll released by the Club for Growth, Doug Hoffman now leads in New Yorks 23rd congressional district special election! While I have been expecting Hoffman to slowly surge into second place, for a hell of an election finale, it appears Hoffman has surged beyond all of my expectations. Read my interview with the candidate yesterday.
Doug Hoffman (C) - 31.3% of the vote.
Bill Owens (D) - 27.0% of the vote.
"Dede" Scozzafava - 19.7% of the vote.
Undecided - 22.0% of the vote.
Let the Conservative revolution begin! It is time for Scozzafava to drop out of the election, and it is time for the Republican party to embrace the only real Conservative Republican in the race!

Fellow Conservatives & Republicans across the Internet, I have just completed an interview with Conservative candidate for the United States Congress in New York's 23rd congressional district, Doug Hoffman. Though the interview lasted just eight minutes, I am really impressed with this candidate, and I have been following his campaign for months.
Mr.Hoffman was generous enough to keep the answers on a yes or no basis, however, when it comes to the Republican party, he really cannot contain his desire for a Reagan Republican party.
Question : Do you support General McChrystals request to increase troop levels in Afghanistan?
Answer : Yes.
Question : Do you support abolishing the estate tax?
Answer : Yes.
Question : If elected to Congress, will you run in the 2010 Republican primary?
Answer : Yes.
Question : If you are not elected to Congress, will you run for Congress next November?
Answer : Possibly.
Question : Do you believe in a strong Conservative Republican party, or a third party?
Answer : My campaign is to reclaim the heart & soul of the Republican party, I am a Reagan Republican.
Question : Do you support or oppose H.R. 3200, the "public option" bill in the House of Representatives.
Answer : Opposed, in all of its variations.
Question : Do you expect more Congressional Republicans to support your campaign within the next 9 days?
Answer : Absolutely yes.
Thank you Mr.Hoffman for this interview, it sure means a lot.

24 hours ago, I wrote about how Congresswoman Bachmann endorsing Doug Hoffman would be excellent, today it is being reported that Congresswoman Bachmann has endorsed Doug Hoffman for Congress, becoming the first Republican to publicly endorse Hoffman over Scozzafava.
Rep. Michele Bachmann, the iconoclastic Minnesota congresswoman becomes, as far as I can tell, the first incumbent Republican to back the Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman over Republican Dede Scozzafava in the roiling NY-23 special election. On her radio show yesterday, Laura Ingraham skillfully pushed Bachmann to take a stand on the race — the answer seemed to come by accident.
“What I read,” said Bachmann, “is that the Republican-endorsed candidate is actually number three. The Democrat is number one and the conservative candidate is number two.” (This was not actually true in the last poll, which showed Democrat Bill Owens leading Scozzafava, and Hoffman bringing up the rear.)
Nudged by Ingraham, Bachmann threw Scozzafava under the bus. “Hoffman is on the ascendancy,” she said, “and we have to win this seat, and people need to get behind the winning candidate, and it looks like that’s Hoffman.” After Ingraham said that Bachmann had just made an endorsement, the congresswoman didn’t correct her: “It appears that he has the best chance right now.”
Doug Hoffman 2009! When I say Michele Bachmann is the first Republican Congressman to come out and endorse Hoffman, the fact a large majority of Republicans in Congress have not even sent Scozzafava one dime, proves to me that there is a silent majority of Republicans who want their true comrade to win, Doug Hoffman.

With just 12 days to election day 2009, Republican candidate for Governor in Virginia's Gubernatorial election, Bob McDonnell, has little to fear from his Democratic rival, Creigh Deeds, as his campaign is running on fumes, and recent polling data has Deeds trailing McDonnell in some polls by more then 10% percentage points.
According to SurveyUSA, if the Gubernatorial election we're held today in Virginia, Republican Bob McDonnell would win the Governor's house by near 20% of the vote.
59% - Bob McDonnell.
40% - Creigh Deeds.
1% - Undecided.
Among younger Virginians aged 18-34, the results are even more surprising.
61% - Bob McDonnell.
37% - Creigh Deeds.
2% - Undecided.
Republican Bob McDonnell has been smeared viciously by the Washington Post and other liberal smear merchants, however, his goals of fiscal conservatism , an all of the above energy plan, and the fact he is not a Democrat, is pushing McDonnell to reclaim the Virginia governors house, a house Republicans have been locked out of since 2001 in Virginia.
This Gubernatorial race will revitalize the Conservative Republican movement for the 2010 elections, and this Gubernatorial race will bring the state of Virginia back to its Conservative roots, especially since a majority of Virginians disapprove of Obama's job through nine months.
Bob McDonnell 09! Let the Conservative Republican Revolution begin!

Author's note - this is the third of a series of articles, listing five reasons why you should support Republican candidates seeking elected office across the Nation, this series has previously featured Bob McDonnell & Chris Christie.
With the nomination of Democratic Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher to a high level position in the Obama administration, a special election has been called for the vacant congressional seat in California's tenth congressional district, a traditionally liberal district, however, with a special election looming, anything can happen.
Republican David Harmer is seeking to replace Tauscher in the United States Congress, restore Conservatism to the district, and ride on a wave of anti-government feelings which has circulated across the Nation. While Harmer might have more momentum then Republicans have previously had while running in this district, the district is D+11, supported Obama with 64% of the vote, and the Democrat candidate is the current Lt.Governor of California.
Despite all of the above mentioned, Harmer is running a special election, which guarantees a tighter election then normal, especially if Harmer can get out the Republican vote, and use the Democrat candidates status as a member of a failing administration against him to rile up feelings.
Without further delay, here are the official five reasons to support Republican David Harmer's bid to become California's next Congressman from the 10th congressional district.
- God knows, we need all of the business experience we can get in Washington D.C. right now, which is the largest reason why we should all support David Harmer. Harmer is a independent businessman who has become very successful in a state which demoralizes most business owners.
- Harmer believes in the "all of the above" energy approach, and opposes the "cap & tax" legislation which passed the House of Representatives several months ago. His energy approach is an oddity in California, however, it is welcomed.
- Harmer is a National Security Conservative, once again, something which has become an oddity in the state of California, however, it is welcomed. Especially since his campaign page directly mentions the dangerous nuclear threats of Iran & North Korea.
- Harmer opposes all of the big government spending policies which have gone through Congress over the past nine months, he realizes that common sense fiscal Conservatism is needed, unlike his opponent.
- Harmer has never been elected to public office, is just a man attempting to the right thing for his four children. Harmer does not believe in big government, socialized medicine, imprisoning our children in trillions of dollars of debt, or taking away our freedom. David Harmer is the Conservative Republican candidate for Congress in this district, which is why he needs our support.
David Harmer is a businessman, one who understands we need to use the energy we got as well as other energies in development, opposes the "cap & tax" legislation, believes in National Security and addressing the threats in Iran & North Korea, is an oddity in California politics, is against big government spending, and in the end, is just a regular guy doing this for his kids.
Please support David Harmer anyway you can, whether it be through voting for him, supporting his campaign through talking with friends or a political contribution, we need folks like David Harmer in Congress now.

Authors note : While I never stop talking about elections, I hardly ever discuss election laws. Just to summarize my positions on election laws, I believe all primaries should be closed to members of that party only, that Churches should be allowed to discuss politics and endorse candidates, I also believe in the New York styled "fusion politics", however, for the state level only.
Last year, Kinston Noth Carolina voted by a 65-35% margin to end their "partisan" local elections, and replace their local elections with a non-partisan style, like most villages have in Upstate New York. Well, Obama's Department of Justice will not allow the election law change to occur, based purely on racism.
Voters in this small city decided overwhelmingly last year to do away with the party affiliation of candidates in local elections, but the Obama administration recently overruled the electorate and decided that equal rights for black voters cannot be achieved without the Democratic Party.
The Justice Department’s ruling, which affects races for City Council and mayor, went so far as to say partisan elections are needed so that black voters can elect their “candidates of choice” – identified by the department as those who are Democrats and almost exclusively black.
The department ruled that white voters in Kinston will vote for blacks only if they are Democrats and that therefore the city cannot get rid of party affiliations for local elections because that would violate black voters’ right to elect the candidates they want.
The nonsense just posted above, makes me want to puke! Equal voting rights cannot be achieved without the Democrat party? That is like saying equal voting rights cannot be achieved for white voters without the Republican party. Well, all blacks "candidates of choice" are fellow black Democrats? Is that not political racism? Is that not downright wrong?
Also, how would that violate their right to elect the candidates they want? Those candidates can still run, the voters can still cast their ballots, perhaps they could call the candidate, and ask "what do you believe, what is your political affiliation, etc.", creating more involvement in the electoral process.
This is idiotic. I personally believe all elections should be partisan to increase involvement, however, if a City or Town wants to change their election laws, why the hell does the Department of Justice have to clear it in the 21st century? I don't think we have to worry about Democrats denying black voters registration rights anymore. Also, was it necessary for the Department of Justice to insult all of the black voters in Kinston North Carolina?
Insanity, just pure insanity.

Michael Steele, the elected Chairman of the Republican National Committee as of earlier this year, does not have great approval numbers from within his party. The former Lt.Governor and Republican candidate for Senator in Maryland, Steele is the first black Chairman of the Republican National Committee, and after being elected to that position, faced vicious & ugly attacks from the left.
Steele has had some bright spots while Chairman, however, he has made a lot of troubling moves during his tenure. As Steele has made some confusing remarks on abortion, believes that "potato salad" will help diversify the Republican party, did not defend Congressman Roy Blunt from a vile attack by a Conservative talk show host, and for his all around not-Conservative enough stances on the issues. Steele has made good comments in regards to Obama winning the Nobel peace Prize, "What has President Obama actually accomplished? It is unfortunate that the president's star power has outshined tireless advocates who have made real achievements working towards peace and human rights", however, the list of good moves is short.
In all fairness, Chairman Steele cannot be 100% evaluated to the 2010 elections are completed, as his leadership during those vital elections will shape whether or not he is elected to a second term as Chairman, and what Republicans really think of him, including myself.
According to a Rasmussen Reports poll on what Republicans think about Chairman Steele, the results are good, but not great.
38% of Republicans have a favorable opinion of Steele.
27% of Republicans have a unfavorable opinion of Steele.
35% of Republicans are unsure.
While a 38% favorable opinion is good, the fact 27% of the party does not approve of you, and 35% of the party is unsure, raises questions as to the performance of the Chairman, when he cannot even reach the 40% favorable barrier.
I personally believe South Carolina's Republican Chairman, Katon Dawson, should have been elected Chairman of the RNC, because he is a Conservative Republican who will stand up for the key values of the Republican party, and he knows how to bring all Republicans to the table (regardless of race), and it is with the issues, not potato salad.

Senator Monserrate, the Democratic State Senator in New York who was convicted of dragging his girlfriend through her apartment last week, but did not receive a conviction on intentionally stabbing her (when he did), has received a backlash from the public, as they want him out of office. Well there is a movement amongst fellow New York State Senators to rightly expel Monserrate from the Senate, and I have at least one confirmed Republican Senator who supports expulsion.
Republican State Senator, Jim Seward of the 51st Senate district (in full disclaimer, my State Senator) wrote to me in an email this afternoon, that Monserrate should resign immediately, or be kicked out of the Senate for good.
Thank you for contacting my office concerning Sen. Hiram Monserrate’ s
conviction of a misdemeanor count of assault. I appreciate hearing from
Sen. Monserrate should resign from the senate immediately. As a convicted
violent offender, he has no place as a member of the New York State Senate.
If he does not resign, I will support efforts to expel him from the senate.
Senator Monserrate is a disgrace, and should be removed by any means possible. I support Senator Seward's call for expulsion without question. If you are from New York, what does your State Senator think on this subject? If you are unsure, you should find out pronto.
If Senate Republicans are unable to remove Monserrate, I hope the voters in his Queen's district will, however, I highly doubt that will happen in such a Democratic voting bloc. But, local Republicans better have a good candidate running, because this scum needs to be defeated.
