Cass Sunstein: How Most Conservatives View the Constitution

I actually learned of this video this morning listening to the Glenn Beck radio show.  Glenn Beck has often referred to Cass Sunstein as the most dangerous man in America.  I’m can’t really speak to that but I can tell you that the below video provides a classic example of how progressives view our Constitution and Mr. Sunstein’s opinion of the conservative judge viewpoint. “Some conservative legal thinkers like Justice Scalia and Justice Thomas think that the constitution means what it originally meant“…ummm is there any other way to see it?  Well actually there is another way to see it; it’s called the progressive way.  With the progressive way you will view the Constitution as a living and breathing document that is open to all kinds of interpretation.  They can change it as often as … Read entire article »

Three Blind Mice: Snowe, Collins, and Brown

The three blind mice of the Republican Party have once again found common ground with the radicals.  Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, and Scott Brown have all decided to support the government expanding, constitution trampling, free market killing, financial reform bill H.R. 4173.  For conservatives wondering what is wrong with the party of limited government look no further than these three blind mice. Olympia Snowe (R-ME) and Susan Collins (R-ME) are the two biggest RINOs in the Republican Party right now.  Out of 598 votes they have only voted with the Republicans 67.9 and 67.4 of the time respectively.  To give you an idea where that stacks up against Democrats with similar voting records, it would be like having Evan Bayh (D-IN) and Ben Nelson (D-NE) in the Republican Party.  Scott Brown … Read entire article »

From Planet Schultz: Conservatives Own or Control 90% of the Media

I found this video on YouTube of progressive Ed Schultz strategizing how to get the progressive message out in an electronic media market that is 90 percent owned or controlled by conservatives.  He started off the night by insulting Tea Partiers.  He called them low information voters that are being propped up by the Glenn Becks of the world.  I guess he missed the recent New York Times/CBS News poll  that found that people that identify with the Tea Party movement are more educated than the general public.  The general public includes the uninformed Ed Schultz.  He then went on to say that the electronic media is 90 percent own or controlled by conservatives. Now I do know that conservative talk radio seems to attract a much larger audience than liberal talk radio, but this is the free … Read entire article »

The Conservative = Violent / Liberal = Non-Violent Myth | NewsBusters.org

I found this gem of a video on NewsBusters and wanted to share it with all of you. The MSM has depicted the Tea Party movement as a bunch of racists’ rabble-rousers that are inciting violence across America.  Let’s watch the video and you decide which side is promoting violence. The Conservative = Violent / Liberal = Non-Violent Myth NewsBusters.org Well I guess once again the MSM is asleep at the wheel when it comes to reporting the truth.  Oh wait, did I use the word truth and MSM in the same sentence…my bad. Liberty forever, freedom for all! … Read entire article »

America or Political Party…Time to Choose

Last night I was talking to my mother and we were catching up on all the little goings-on back home in Pennsylvania.  She was telling me about my nieces and her birthday and how the weather was and so on.  The conversation eventually drifted to politics and I could hear in her voice how frustrated she was with Washington DC and all of our elected officials.  She mentioned how corrupt DC had become and how this same type of corruption was seeping into Scranton politics.  As I listened to her venting her concerns, I noticed a hint of apathy in her voice.  Something I had never felt or heard from my mother before. You see my mother is a conservative and she believes in an America that just doesn’t exist anymore.  … Read entire article »

The Road of Less Spending

by RightHandMan Rarely before have the alternatives facing America been so starkly defined.  For the past year, Washington’s leaders have taken an already unsustainable budget outlook and made it far worse.  They have exploited Americans’ genuine economic anxieties to justify an unrelenting and wide-ranging expansion of government.  Their agenda has included, among other things, a failed, debt-financed economic “stimulus”; an attempt to control the Nation’s energy sector; increasing domination of housing and financial markets; the use of taxpayer dollars to seize part ownership of two nearly bankrupt auto makers; and, of course, the planned takeover of Americans’ health care, already heavily burdened, manipulated, and distorted by government spending and regulation.  This domineering government brings taxes, rules, and mandates’ generates excessive levels of spending, deficits, and debt; leads to economic stagnation and … Read entire article »

You Stay on Your Side of the Fence, I’ll Stay on Mine

Yesterday Republican Judd Gregg, reached out to the White House with a plan to overhaul healthcare in a bipartisan way.  I normally would support such an effort if the Democratic party was well the Democratic Party of JFK, but it’s not.  The truth is this healthcare bill was written by radicals on the far left and special interest groups that are in bed with the President.  I find nothing in the bill that will improve health care, expand coverage at a lower cost, or bring down the overall costs of healthcare. What I do see is a whole bunch of backroom deals that will push our overall national debt into another planetary system.  I see a great number of people that will still be uninsured and wasn’t that the main reason we wanted healthcare reform to begin with. The problem … Read entire article »

Back to the Basics

Today I was talking to a few people about the economy and the current mess we’re in.  The conversation eventually flowed towards the Founding Fathers and the Constitution.  Before I knew it they were all tuned in to my words and listening attentively.  I was recommending one of my favorite books, “The Miracle of The 5,000 Year Leap” when it hit me just how starved these good people were for information about the Constitution and the Founding Fathers.  Most of them were quite a bit younger and I could see in their eyes that what I was telling them about liberty and property rights seemed like a new concept.  I asked them how much were they taught about the Constitution in school.  Most of them shrugged their shoulders.  I then … Read entire article »

Reviving America

by Right Hand Man Just as it is natural for men to gradually give up their freedoms for less than it cost to get them, it is also natural for the pendulum of politics to take its given course in the other direction. 2008 proved to be the year of the democrats, and rightfully so. Republicans had abandoned their base, divorced their principles, and discarded their integrity. Never mind that the majority of the people considered themselves right of center, conservatism was buried in the court of politics. Such was the case for the Republican Party in 1976. Gerald Ford was the incumbent GOP president, but barely legitimate. The party was reeling from the Nixon fiasco, and there was little hope in site. The democrats held 61 seats in the Senate and … Read entire article »

What is a Conservative?

Does anyone really know the conservative mind? I mean what is a conservative? Is a conservative a bigot? Is a conservative about big business? Is a conservative narrow minded? Or a war monger? Do conservatives believe they have the moral high ground? Are they pro-gun anti-gay anti-government extremist, or something completely different? Over the last couple of years I have asked myself these questions. After all if I’m going to call myself a conservative I should at least make an attempt to understand the ideology? The problem was I had never really examined why I’m a conservative. By the age of forty I began to experience what I like to call a political ideological mid-life crisis. I found myself scrutinizing my belief system and values wondering if I had chosen the … Read entire article »
