Ryan Saves GOP From Itself

James B. Davis Wrote: Dec 16, 2013 2:56 PM
Did Paul Ryan's budget deal save the Republican party from itself? I think it did not. I think it means true Conservatives will finalize realize that traditional Republicans have no respect for them and simply take their votes for granted. I'm tired of holding my nose and voting for moderate Republicans like McCain and Romney. I'm tired of people like Boehner and Ryan making deals with the liberals to make them feel better. I'm looking for a Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul to lead us out of the wasteland that is the current GOP. We need strong leaders who will take principled Conservative positions and then defend and promote them. If the GOP puts up Chris Christy, Paul Ryan or God forbid Jeb Bush for President, then I will not vote for a President for the first time in 45 years.

The video Dr. Sowell mentions is called "Man Born With No Arms Drives His Impala Works For NASCAR Racing Team" and can be viewed on Facebook at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCtIX-WWUrY. Watching this young man driving, working, and eating...with no arms...is absolutely amazing and inspirational.

Is Christie the One?

if Christie becomes the Republican nominee, for the first time in over 40 years i will not vote in a Presidential election. i am tired of holding my nose and voting for the lesser of two evils, i.e Mccain and Romney. The GOP is not listening to conservatives, and keeps pushing Democrat light aka moderate candidates. Winning elections is of course important, but not at the cost of compromising conservative principles. I am done. I don't want to reach across the aisle. I want to take our country back from the liberal idiots who are ruining the United States. Give me, and the conservative base, a true conservative candidate, or lose our votes...and the next presidential election.

I have listened to Hugh Hewitt for years and find myself in general agreement with his point of view. But not this time. He is not arguing a moral or practical position, but rather a legal one, i.e. we must attack Syria because they broke an international law. If this is to be our position, we need to be prepared to repeat this blunder over and over as not a day goes by that someone, somewhere does not provide a rational for action using this narrow minded thinking. We primary politicians for their mistakes...let's primary Hugh by not listening until he comes to his senses.
"As I’ve been working on immigration reform legislation" should have been accurately stated as "I have been working on amnesty for up to 33 million illegal aliens that would cost taxpayers $6.3 trillion over 50 years". Marco Rubio WAS a rising star of the conservative movement. I think his star is fading fast and I'm not certain he can reverse the damage no matter what he does. It is hard to understand why an apparently intelligent conservative could make a career killing decision like this. I donated $1000 to his Florida campaign but will no longer support him financially. I suggest that all conservatives do the same until he abandons the amnesty folly and reassures us that he has come to his senses.
Rush Limbaugh made this argument over a week ago...where has Schlichter been? While I'm not a religious person, sometimes I wonder what people arriving at the gates of heaven are going to say to God when he asks them why they supporting the killing of unborn children and gay marriage. Matthew 19:4-6 New King James Version (NKJV) 4 And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made[a] them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’[b] 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?[c] 6 So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
"Republicans Must Show Support for Hispanic Dreams" is the WRONG message. Are "Hispanic Dreams" different than the dreams of blacks, Asians, whites, etc.? I don't think so. People who come here, legally or illegally, do so to pursue A COMMON DREAM of freedom, opportunity, and a better future for their children. What Republicans need to do is educate all people that conservatives understand the dream, because we have lived it, and that our policies provide the best chance for them to realize the dream.
Sorry, but I don't want the people driving our school buses, trucks, their own cars, or flying planes to be buzzed on either dope OR alcohol. I understand the libertarian arguments and the financial arguments regarding freedom, product purity, the ability to tax, reduction of crime, etc. If you would support mandatory drug testing for all of the above, with irrevocable license forfeiture if the test is positive, then I would consider supporting the legalization of marijuana. Note that we already have testing and license suspension/forfeiture for dwi, so this would be consistent. Do you want your child taken care of by a stoned child care worker? If not, then why would you support legalization?

CPAC Unwise to Snub Christie, Gays

Chris Christie is a Democrat in waiting. If he gets more heat from real conservatives he will just do a Charlie Crist and switch sides. Like most politicians, Christie will say anything to get elected, then once elected he will do what he wants. Florida Governor Rick Scott is another so-called conservative who is now flip flopping on the promises that got him elected. Conservatives are tired of holding their noses and voting for the lessor of the evils. Is there not one truly honest person of conservative principles who will not compromise to get elected or re-elected? Apparently not.
Sorry, but Governor MoonBeam continues to deserve that title. He is mostly responsible for the massive obligations required for public employee unions. He is mostly responsible for the idiotic bullet train to nowhere that is going to cost 3-4 times original estimate and which few will ever ride. He is mostly responsible for people and businesses leaving California in droves. He is mostly responsible for California now having the highest state tax rate in the nation (Many of us are now paying about 52% in combined Federal and State taxes, plus property taxes, sales taxes, various other fees.) Please don't insult us by comparing Jerry Brown with a conservative.
