Refugee Opposition: It’s Not Bigotry. It’s Righteous Indignation.

The American People are a compassionate people, charitable and tolerant, and always ready to embrace the challenges the world sets before us (at least eventually). This Syrian Refuge crisis, however, has broken upon a much less open America, much less worried about the poor and the hungry and the sick. It infuriates me that this […]

Congressman Dave Brat: Not the Easy Mark Bearing Drift Imagines

Our good friends over at Bearing Drift continue to snipe at Congressman Dave Brat from a distance. Sporting article after article written with accusations gathered from unnamed sources, Bearing Drift aims at painting a picture of Congressman Brat as lost in the weeds of Washington D.C., out-matched by those genius career politicians sporting their just-barely […]

The Inevitability of Ted Cruz

As the Republican Primary takes shape, I feel increasingly confident in the electoral viability of Senator Ted Cruz. While those who make a fortune working for, lobbying for, contracting with, and benefiting from the Republican Establishment in Washington D.C. will remain cantankerous toward the Cruz Campaign, the Senator has a great deal working in his […]

Delegate Buddy Fowler Wins Big in the 55th

So much for the Richmond Times Dispatch nonsense about the 55th District being embarrassed by Delegate Buddy Fowler’s record. Did those crooked-glasses “Einstein’s” at the Times miss the mark or what? At the end of the day, the race for Delegate came down to the issue of Medicaid Expansion. Virginians simply do not want to […]

I endorsed Sheriff Tony Lippa and would like to congratulate him on his victory in Caroline County. I think he’s done a great job as Sheriff and he has such wide support due to his service. That said, I also want to publicly thank Chris Wooldridge for running and for his campaign. The time I […]

Networking Your Counties: Developers and Businesses are Doing It. Are You?

We’ve all heard of the “Good Old Boys Network” referring to wealthy networks for businessmen, developers, and politicians. These networks are not magically manufactured. Regular folk, who just happen to be wealthier and more powerful than everyone else, network amongst themselves to secure their interests against the rubes and rabble that outnumber them in their […]

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 […]

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 […]

Obama DOJ Declares Open Season On TEA Party

The Trials and Tribulations of the Grassroots Activist

The sheer amount of emotional fortitude required to be a conservative, constitutional, or libertarian grassroots activists is broader and deeper than anyone could imagine. Faced with the most frustrating realities, activists are forced to soldier on against impossible odds.

Paul Ryan’s Dangerous Game

After some inquiry, I find it impossible to believe that the Freedom Caucus would arbitrarily cave to the ascendancy of Paul Ryan without specific preconditions. No one was more surprised than I at the news that the HFC (House Freedom Caucus) was intending to back Ryan for Speaker, but as I reflect upon the nature […]

Washington Post Reports: Freedom Caucus Surrenders. Stabs Constituents In The Heart.

These are amazing times. It is a rare thing that within just a few hours of writing an article I am given cause to retract it. Earlier today I wrote an article praising the Freedom Caucus for their strong principled stand for an open process and a principled, transparent, and deliberative House of Representatives. Whether […]

What Is The Freedom Caucus Really After?

The 36 members of the House Freedom Caucus have created a great deal of turmoil in our nations’ capital. While they are too few to control Congresses legislative agenda, they do have enough members to influence the race for Speaker of the House.

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. […]
