    Ron Paul in an exasperated tone during the Iowa debates: “All these trade sanctions!…this is why we still don’t have a trade relationship with Cuba.”

    The basic concept being propounded by leading neoconservative writers and publications is that anyone who disagrees with neoconservative policies is an isolationist.

    Move over Mitt Romney. Rick Perry has a bigger problem to defend from his tenure as governor. Remember the NAFTA Superhighway project?

    I spoke recently with a senior Democrat strategist who offered up a quite logical and incredibly frightening scenario for those who are desperate to vote Barack Obama out of office in 2012.

    The budget deal not only set government spending to grow, it set up an oligarchy. Wrong direction. So what's the right direction?

    To begin, Perry’s home state of Texas has 152 delegates, second in size only to California’s 172. With its congressional district/caucus delegate apportionment formula, the Governor would certainly attract the overwhelming majority of his own state’s delegate support. Since he ostensibly plays well in the south, Perry can reasonably be expected to win the region.

    Gold isn’t money? How could America get to this point we asked in astonishment upon hearing the Chairman of the Federal Reserve proclaim, “Gold isn’t Money.”

    Mark Twain is usually credited with the quip that “Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.” The same is certainly true of our dependence on foreign, and often unfriendly, sources of energy – particularly when gas prices soar and every American feels the pinch.

    The Register, as it's known to one and all, has long been the dominant paper in Iowa, and is THE source for inside info on who's up, who's down, who's in and who's out when it comes to Presidential politics.

    To be fair, Obamacare would not have passed under McCain. However, it is also fair to point out Obamacare passed only because of a procedural move, and the Supreme Court may soon invalidate key provisions of that legislation.

    This week in Manchester, New Hampshire, seven Republican contenders faced off in the first GOP primary debate of the season, attempting to make their case to the American people for why they are better suited than President Obama to lead the country in these challenging times.

    I consider all Republican debates time-fillers until New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie jumps in, but Monday night's debate did crystallize for me why I dislike libertarians. (Except one, who is a friend of mine and not crazy.)

    The headline for the big GOP debate should read “ROMNEY SOLIDIFIES HIS STATUS AS FRONTRUNNER” but the appropriate sub-head may prove even more significant in the long run: “Bachmann Makes Energetic and Well-Received Debut.”

    The leading contenders for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination showed their stuff in a nationally televised debate in New Hampshire Monday night, and they weren't the "weak field" some polls had suggested.

    The violations of law and trust that are a result of the non-enforcement of immigration laws, especially as it relates to criminal illegal aliens, pales in comparison to the violations of King George III in Parliament. Across the country, states governments are shouldering the growing financial burden of keeping criminal illegal aliens in jail in the face of hostility from the executive branch of the federal government.

    To suggest there is "No Downside" is a bit inaccurate. A better way of phrasing the setup is there is "no NET downside" to not increasing the ceiling without significant budget cuts.

    I’ve been active in national politics since Ronald Reagan’s great victory in 1980, and I can honestly say that I’ve never seen the TV pundits display the level of insanity and stupidity that we see today. Regrettably, this sentiment applies to the press on both sides of the political aisle.

    Like would-be yentas trying to set you up on dates with their divorced friends, the political class is constantly trying to foist divorced candidates on the Republican Party, authoritatively assuring us that Americans don't have a problem with divorce anymore.

    Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels' announcement that he can't play in the presidential primaries because his wife and daughters say he's not allowed to is terrible news for the GOP and the country.
