Narrative: Why Democrats Win (Part One)

The Democrat Party, fueled by the Progressive movement, is masterful in the establishment of narratives in the public psyche. I cannot tell you how many people I know that refuse to vote for Republicans because Republicans only care about rich corporate elitists and hate the little guy. Republicans are all bigots and racists and homophobes. […]

Governor McAuliffe’s Medicaid Argument

Governor McAuliffe was on WTOP’s “Ask The Governor” this morning, making his case for Medicaid Expansion through the Affordable Care Act. I was in my truck, so I couldn’t call in, but listening to the Governor while driving is probably as dangerous as texting, or putting on makeup, or clipping ones’ toenails while operating a […]

Medicaid in Virginia: More of the Same

42,000 HealthCare.gov applications stalled in Virginia Medicaid limbo Ladies and gentlemen, Virginia has handed over the State Government to progressives (aka liberals, aka statists) and the result is apparently no different in Virginia than in Washington D.C. How can Virginia afford 42,000 more medicaid applications? We’ve neither the money nor infrastructure in place to handle […]

I Have Only One Thing to Say About a Constitutional Convention: Slating!

If you have been following politics much lately, a couple of thins have dominated. At least in my corner of the political spectrum. A lot of folks are talking about having a Constitutional Convention to force congress to do something about the debt. Nothing else seems to work, but a lot of people think a […]

The Importance of Principle

Every person of principle has trouble when it comes to dealing with political parties, which for a myriad of reasons seem utterly immune to principle. Every time we make a principled argument about why a particular policy is wrong, we’re shouted down as being “purists” or “impractical” or “uncompromising”. What the impure, practical, compromisers forget […]

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 […]

Virginia Republicans Traded Control of State Senate for Tax Hike by Scrapping Redistricting Plans

Do you remember the big tax hike the Republicans pushed through last year? $6 Billion dollars of our money went to transportation – about 60% – and the rest to growing government. But part of the deal to get Democrats to vote for the tax hike (which shows how astute Republicans really are – who […]

Calibrating the Extremist Meter

This is extremely hard to take for TEA Party Conservatives that have worked so hard to elect Republicans to office. These TEA Party groups began by looking at the sorry state of the US Government and knowing deep down we had strayed from the path the founders set us on. But the Federal Government has […]

Reflections on the 2013 Election, the Last 4 Years and Where We Go From Here

So we are now a week beyond the election of 2013 in Virginia. The emotions and feelings in the Commonwealth are still raw, but the initial shock has subsided and those bitter over the Republican loss have simmered down to just under the boiling point. I have personally taken a lot of flack from my […]

When the “undecided” voters were removed from the survey, Zogby found that McAuliffe, a former Democratic national chairman, led […]

I just saw the summary of the Conservative Intel poll on the Virginia governor’s race (thanks to Hot Air for this news, too) and it is good news for the Libertarian:  He’s still drawing ten percent (and about the same amount are undecided) and the analysis says two things – this first about the numbers: […]

Reader Submitted: Hey Reps, Please Don’t EXPAND the Job Pool!

One of the primary roles of immigration reform that is currently being drafted is to expand the immigration worker pool, even though support for immigration worker expansion is VERY low in EVERY single group of U.S. voters (according to Pulse Opinion Research Poll).  The percentage who somewhat or strongly support the expansion is only: 30% […]
