May 6, 2018

What Happened to the Tea Party?
May 22, 2014
I’ll give Business Insider some credit. After Tea Party-backed candidates came up empty across the board in Tuesday’s Republican primaries, the website that has spent years maligning our rule-of-law movement could have taken the low road. Instead, blogger Brett Logiurato wrote a fair assessment of what’s happened to the GOP since February 27, 2009. The much-talked about Republican “civil war” is over, at least for the people who thought it even existed in the first place.
Here’s My Electoral Map Prediction
November 5, 2012
Yes, I’m feeling a wave toward Romney. My gut tells me this year is a lot like 1980. 1980 Was A Dead Heat The final Gallup poll that year had a dead heat. Time Magazine’s November 3, 1980, called the race a dead heat. So did Newsweek. The press was hoping John B. Anderson, a former Republican Congressman running for president as an independent, would siphon votes from Reagan. He did siphon votes from Reagan, but not nearly enough.

Arguably, the most important battles for economic liberty in the next four years will be between states and the government in Washington. The progressives in Washington want to consolidate power and money to feed the insatiable appetite of parasites in the USA and the world. Rex Sinquefield, the billionaire Bishop DuBourg alum who masquerades as a libertarian-ish Republican, lifted his mask this week to help Washington’s progressives steal Missouri’s autonomy and treasures.
Romney-Ryan Have a Vision They Can Talk About

Why did murder skyrocket in Chicago as soon as Rahm Emanuel became mayor? Why have Americans become nastier and meaner since Barack Obama became president? As Michael Dukakis told us, a fish rots from the head down. Obama surrounds himself with people who thrive on decay and death. After four years, Obama has nothing to say for himself. Nothing. He can only cut and attack and lie and sneer and mock like a high school bully.
Here's Why Tax Credits Kill Society
July 23, 2012
Tax credits reward particular businesses or developers with tax dollars from the general population. They concentrate wealth in a few hands. Tax credits are the way politicians play the market with someone else’s money. Worse, **Republicans are addicted to tax credits. ** A Missouri House Republican leader told a constituent that his party gives tax dollars to people who “spend it smarter.” Bill Clinton said the same thing in about 1992.
The Election’s Over, and America Gave Obama His Eviction Notice. Here’s What Went Down.
April 19, 2012
The look on George “Stephie” Stephanopoulos’s face was priceless. He had to say it. “ABC News now projects that President Obama will go down to defeat.” He couldn’t bring himself to say, “Romney won” or “Republicans won.” He just couldn’t. The network analysis was a political cliché run amok. My favorite came from James Carville who told CNN viewers that the election result “proves that crackers and racists vote.”
