Finally! Democracy has been practiced in Amercia!

I couldn’t agree more on this. Also, the notion that your side is the “Real America” is dumb, and you should stop saying it. Also the phrase “A President for all Americans” is equally stupid, and it shows your bias. The President of any party is the President. The media and Democrats now believe that […]

A Communist’s Prediction

Benson’s grandchildren are in their thirties now. Listen from 2 minutes on, then listen to the clip below. The Proper Role of Government by Ezra Taft Benson:

On the End of America

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’ve been scared to death recently by the prospect of a Great Depression Two. I’ve found myself waking up an hour early, staring at the ceiling, wondering if all of this could be true. It is more selfish than anything. I don’t want to give up my comfort. […]

Give the Taxpayer Second Tier Loss, not First

I swear, I could almost teach an econ course after the last two weeks. I will be so glad when politics goes back to less complicated issues, like lipstick and guns. One of the issues I worry about with the Paulson Plan is the actual execution of the plan. Are we really going to let […]

Obama-McCain Fact Check

Copy and Pasted from an essential website: factcheck.org. Summary McCain and Obama contradicted each other repeatedly during their first debate, and each volunteered some factual misstatements as well. Here’s how we sort them out: Obama said McCain adviser Henry Kissinger backs talks with Iran “without preconditions,” but McCain disputed that. In fact, Kissinger did recently […]

Proof that Libertarians take more Democratic Votes

It is incorrect that Libertrians always “take away” Republican votes. Take a look at this poll from the 2006 Congressional race between Hill/Sodrel/Schansberg: “Libertarian Eric Schansberg gets 5% in today’s poll, which, in a contest this close, will make a difference. Because Schansberg’s support is disproportionately Liberal, he appears to take more votes from the […]

The Arrogance of the GOP on Libertarians

The best-named blog, Conservatibbs, touts a common theme when Republicans discuss Libertarians: “Schansberg’s run for Congress as a Libertarian is actually an impediment to implementing a libertarian legislative agenda. The votes that Schansberg drains from Sodrel will help Baron Hill in his efforts to return to Congress. That would be destructive to efforts to limit […]
