Now that we have seen a dozen or so debates between the so-called “Republicans,” (I say so-called because neither Gary Johnson nor Ron Paul are Republicans, they are both fringe libertarians), it is time to re-evaluate those left standing, either out front or in the wings.
Of all those out front, Perry is the only choice, unfortunately.
Romney is being forced on us by the media and democrats, in the same manner Dole and McCain were. He has nothing going for him except that he is next in line in a RINO filled GOP. He has an uncanny ability to be on both sides of an issue, and, if anyone notices, it is to their detriment, not his. Arrogance at an extraordinary level.

(Bah-da-bum)
Perry made a fool of himself. It was embarrassing to watch him try to stay on the script he obviously had been studying. He seemed stiff and stilted, like reading lines that don’t quite fit in his mouth. He may believe every word; I … Continue Reading:Tuesday’s debate as seen from my corner

Since 2000 we have heard, “This is THE most important election in our lifetime,” and it has been true in every case. This next presidential election will be the most important election in our lifetime; and it will be won by the Republican who appears to be the most conservative person in the field.
Nevertheless, the next president is likely to be the weakest Chief Executive in 80 years. Franklin Roosevelt’s central government power grab is ending and States Rights are coming back.
A more TEA party Congress
With the exception of McGovern ‘72 and Mondale ‘84 when the top of a presidential ticket suffers a landslide defeat of the type Obama is headed for, his party has suffered major losses in Congress. Next year will be no different.
There are 62 members of the TEA Party Caucus in the House and four in the … Continue Reading:The TEA Party’s States Rights agenda makes GOP candidates’ positions almost unimportant
