My Take on GOP Field, Post-2nd Debate

First off: CNN was disgraceful. All they did was to seek out responses to insults, not specifics of policy. Embarrassing.

Where I am now on the GOP field.

Carson is too nice a guy. I want an sob in the White House, not someone who’s gonna get along with everyone. Though I was impressed with his performance @ Heritage. Maybe I’m wrong. But with his 2nd Amendment stance (situational; what is it with people who just don’t grasp the Constitution?) he isn’t my top choice.

My preference now:
Rand
Carly
Cruz

I know many already have dismissed Rand, and that […]

GOP: Cold War Not Over

For unknown reasons the GOP is unable to accept that the Cold War ended a quarter-century ago.

Every candidate – with the exception of Rand Paul – is saying “we need a stronger military.” Carly even gave us numbers. But… why? We already have the strongest military in the history of the known universe.

Why do we need a stronger military? Why does the GOP keep demanding it? Because Reagan demanded – and got – it? That was during the Cold War and we needed it. But – we won the Cold War; it’s over.

Should we never go […]

The Politics of a post-9/11 Internet World

We are witnessing a sea change in our politics, and outside of a few – Rand, Cruz, Trump, Bernie – no one is noticing…

Cruz is calling out the liars in his own party. McCain is berating GOP senators supporting the Constitution. McConnell is lying to his team in order to pass anti-limited government legislation.

Rand is saying – ya know what? The 10th Amendment really does exist, and, no, we don’t need to police the world.

Bernie is cleaning Hillary’s clock with her own base.

The GOP base can’t stand Jeb Bush.

Walker is […]

Rand, the Filibuster and the Future of America

Rand again is filibustering again, again in defense of things no one who has taken the oath of office should find the opportunity, let alone the need, to filibuster – our Rights as American citizens as enumerated in the Bill of Rights – the Supreme Law of the Land.

That’s fine and dandy, and I completely support his doing so.

But he’s missing the point.

The Establishment pols in both the Progressive Democrat wing and the Progressive Republican wing of the Ruling Class demand that we spy on all Americans because we are at war and their primary job is […]
