  Dr. Ben Carson notched a pretty big feather in his cap on Saturday when the GOP Presidential hopeful was able to win the straw poll at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in Oklahoma City. The conference draws activists from across the South and is an important first stop in the primary season. In 2011, …

poverty in america

When Pope Francis speaks, liberals listen, except when it’s about abortion and same-sex marriage, unless, of course, he spouts liberal talking points. His latest comments are about the poor. “The Gospel does not condemn the wealthy, but the idolatry of wealth, the idolatry that makes people indifferent to the call of the poor,” Francis stated …

Non-voters

I’ve been following the comments by the anti-voters on several Facebook threads. Their argument is that if you vote for Mitt Romney over Barack Obama, you’re a pragmatist. I’ve been following the conservative movement for more than 30 years, and I’ve been hearing the same rhetoric for 30 years: “No candidate is good enough. We …

Vote sign

I keep telling my non-Romney voter friends and non-voters in general that it’s not all about the presidency. We have a Congress that can put a stop to much (even all) that a president proposes. The President can propose and Congress and dispose, if there are enough disposers in Congress. One thing a presidential election …

You’ve heard anti-Republican critics say, “I just can’t vote for the lesser of two evils.” If this is true, then you can never vote since we’re all evil, although some are more evil than others. I have a number of Calvinist friends who use the “lesser of two evils” argument. If you know anything about …

Political takeover

Trying to get elected as a third party candidate in American politics is extremely difficult if not impossible. Ballot access is an obstacle since third parties have to meet additional criteria not required of Republicans and Democrats. Reform Party candidate Ross Perot was able to get on the ballot in all 50 states in 1992 …

A lot of my friends are not going to vote in November, or if they do vote they’re going to write in Ron Paul. They say they’re voting their “conscience” as if people who are voting for Barack Obama or Mitt Romney are not voting their “conscience.” I’m going to vote my conscience, and I’m …

In 1992, President George H.W. Bush was running for re-election against Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton.  Dissatisfied with both political parties, Texas industrialist Ross Perot launched his campaign for president running as an Independent.  In the final outcome, Clinton upset Bush and won the presidency. However, many still claim that Bush would have won re-election had …

Vote Box

Mitt Romney was never my first choice for President. I would have liked to have seen any number of other candidates be in the top spot. But that didn’t happen. I know there are a lot of Ron Paul supporters, of which I am one (for the most part as I would say about any …

KY Dem Primary

Yesterday I told you that no dead people voted at my precinct.  As I watched the election results here in Kentucky, I saw a very interesting thing take place. On the Republican ballot there were four names to choose from for president: Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul and Rick Santorum.  Voters also had a …

Athens GOP Logo

According to the Republican Party, all meetings are to follow Robert’s Rules.  All local GOP officials are supposed to have a copy of the Party rules and follow them when conducting any business, especially when electing delegates for the presidential elections. The Republican committee for Athens-Clarke County, Georgia met on March 10 to formally select …

Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum

If you’ve been watching the caucuses, primaries and polls as I have, perhaps you may be asking yourself the same question: could Rick Santorum beat Mitt Romney if Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul were to drop out of the race? To start with, I find it interesting that the overall delegate count runs completely opposite …
