Caroline County Endorsements: Trying to Build a Better Caroline County

Caroline County Politics is complicated. The Republican Party in Caroline County is controlled by a single family. As I look at the ballots in the county, almost every conservative is running as an Independent. Why do they run as independents? Because Jeff Sili and his family rule the Caroline County Republican Party with a self-interested […]

All-Politics-is-Local

Remember, Remember The 3rd of November

It is often said that all politics is local, though locals rarely show up to vote for their town councilmen, county supervisors, sheriffs, State Delegates and Senators. Obama can’t raise your property taxes, or your gas tax, or approve new utility fees, or build large condensed housing in the middle of your rural area.  Your […]

There is Stupid & Then There is Primary Season Stupid

Primary season tends to make us all unrealistic. Our favorite candidates can do no wrong, every poll we post to facebook proves that they are doing better than they actually are, and every other candidate is an idiot. My two favorite unrealistic, tinfoil hat-wearing articles devoid of perspective, are entitled Surprise! The Trump Campaign is […]

Remember Policy? John Kasich Does

I’ve often been bothered by the lack of policy and experience exhibited by the Carson and Trump camps. They resonate with voters. They speak our language. Yet, they refuse to run on actual policy. I think this is why they are winning in the polls, however. Voters aren’t looking for policy or reason or thoughtfulness. […]

PSA: Give Rand Paul a Pass on Cruz Attacks

Much ado has been made throughout the day about Rand Paul going after Ted Cruz. Ted Cruz supporters are understandably upset and disappointed. However, we really ought to stay focused on the nature of primaries and understand that for Rand Paul to win the nomination, he has to beat Ted Cruz. Where do you think […]

The Questions Left Unasked

I would argue that the media is, as per usual, driving the focus of the Republican Primary, were it not for Donald Trumps’ celebrity rocketing Illegal Immigration, Carly Fiorina’s face, and America’s overall decline amongst the worlds’ powerful Nation States to the forefront of this election cycle. That said, I believe we are still ignoring […]

The Dysfunctional Republican Party: Can It Prevail?

The world of Republican politics differs greatly from the world of Democrat politics, primarily because Republicans and Democrats really do live and think differently from one another. On the one hand, you have a Democrat Party that marches in lock step, democrat voters who will vote for any candidate so long as they are running […]

I’m Done With Trump

It makes no sense for someone who writes for an audience to insult someone their audience supports. However, like Donald Trump, I’m not loyal to one party or any group of financial supporters. Unlike The Donald, I do this for free. Granted, there is probably a reason for that. So I endorse all comments calling […]

What Everyone Seemed To Miss After The GOP Debate

It’s been 22 hours since the 9pm debate began Thursday night in Cleveland, Ohio.

Prognostication: The Lessons We Didn’t Learn in 2010

The following is from an article I wrote in 2010: “Independents across the nation are grappling with a difficult choice in November. Do they punish the Democrat Party’s overreaching policies by once again entrusting the Republicans with power in Congress? The consensus, it seems, is that independents are willing to trust Republicans again, if and […]

Republican Debate: Perry Disappoints – Romney Rises

There was one really good line in last night’s debate. Former New Mexico Governor and presidential candidate Gary Johnson quipped “My next-door neighbor’s two dogs have created more shovel-ready jobs than this current administration“. This was a debate jointly sponsored by Fox News and Google which is almost as odd as the TEA Party teaming […]

Poor left wing fruitcakes.
