UKIP has now BEATEN the TORIES in the last THREE by-elections! IT’S the MESSAGE: LIBERTY and SOVEREIGNTY!

I am on the email list for ConservativeHome blog (which I recommend heartily) and I was curious what the pro-Tory blog would say.  But it did not come to me today!  I thought maybe I got kicked off for aggravated touting for UKIP (which I plead guilty!) in the recent postings.  But I went to […]

TWO NEW POLLS in EASTLEIGH show UKIP with 21%!

The Eastleigh riding by-election for local parliament is getting very interesting.  Very interesting indeed.  UKIP could win after all!  Certainly very good possibility of their best turnout ever.  I reported the Lord Ashcroft poll this AM but the Guardian is reporting by one of its bloggers that two (the third poll is the Ashcroft one) […]

Meet the New Democrats: A Non-Compromising Unity of Hatred and Intolerance

So what is the common denominator with today’s Democrats? Civil rights? Naw. Unless you happen to be black. Gay rights? Not unless you are gay. Abortion rights? Women’s rights? Environmental issues? No. Each of these individual proponents are lobbyists for their own position and simply tolerate the other Democrats because they have a common hatred. Republicans. Conservatives. […]

A Recovering Republican’s Views of Cuccinelli’s Va Run for Governor

As I mentioned yesterday, my Congressman Eric Cantor and his War on Conservatives has convinced me that all is lost on the National Front with the Republican Party. As Speaker John Boehner and Cantor, two Progressives pretending to be Republicans purge Conservatives from every committee, the result is not only a total and complete move away […]

Over the River and Through the Woods and Off the Cliff We Go

There is no doubt that whoever coined the phrase “Fiscal Cliff” for the converging tax hikes and sequestration cuts is a fan of big government.

Condi Rice Could be the Surprise Pick for VP? Good or Bad for Mitt Romnay?

Drudge is reporting that Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is one of the finalists for the VP nomination. That is an interesting choice.

We know Condi. Very smart […]
