voting


christians and politics

Let’s get a few preliminaries out of the way. First, there is no doubt that there are few differences between the two major parties. With both Houses of Congress owned by the Republicans, one would think that the claimed differences would have come out and the GOP would have fought for the principles they claim …

vote democrat

Comedian Jeff Foxworthy has become famous with “You might be a redneck” humor. We can add to his repertoire with this one: “If you’re a felon, you might be a Democrat.” Of course, for me, if Democrat politicians were taken to court and questioned on whether they upheld their oath to abide by the Constitution …

Socks, the White House cat, sits atop the podium i

Obama’s numerous support groups are doing his dirty work again, which is to say they are trying to drum up enthusiasm and legal excuses for his latest tyrannical musings. Last week, it was an apparently off-the-cuff (meaning it was on the teleprompter) remark about making voting mandatory. That upsets many traditionalists for a lot of very good …

illegals voting

Ever since Barack Obama started violating federal immigration laws, I wrote that his underlying intentions were to keep illegals in the US so that they could illegally vote for Democrats in local, state and national elections. In many states, all they have to do to register to vote is obtain a valid driver’s license and …

election-vote

In polite society, you’re not supposed to talk about politics, sex, or religion. Sorry, but this column will discuss all three, directly or indirectly. In America, we get the kind of government we deserve. Is this the best we can do? There certainly is a big divide in how we approach politics, even among well-meaning …

Bundy Cobb hat

If I were to show you a hat or t-shirt that had that NRA logo on it or said ‘NRA’, would you automatically assume that I was associated with and promoting the Republican Party? Evidently there are some folks in Douglasville, Georgia that think so. The Atlanta suburb of 31,000 is located about 20 miles …

schizophrenia

Franklin Graham has come out with a broadside against pastors. He describes some of today’s pastors as “cowards” for not addressing the social evils of our day. “Graham told a large gathering of pastors on [May 22] to address controversial issues from the pulpit, declaring that ‘God hates cowards.’” Ouch! Graham based his remarks on …

jan brewer politico

Once again President Barack Obama proved that he is either a bold-faced liar or has no clue what’s really happening along the US-Mexico border.  Most likely he’s guilt of both, as he recently announced that our borders are more secure than ever. His words have not set well with Arizona Governor Jan Brewer.  She has …

If you are still undecided on who to vote for today, then perhaps you should think about your children and grandchildren and vote for what’s best for them.

Tenth Amendment

For decades you’ve seen the bumper stickers and signs: “Get US out of the UN.” Within the conservative movement, the United Nations has been a sore spot. We pay millions of dollars, billions if you count foreign aid, to nations that despise us and vote against us every chance they got. Few people paid attention …

vote poverty

Gary Younge of Guardian had an article a couple days ago about why the “working class poor” vote for Republicans. He tried pointing out that such a thing is completely nonsensical. Why would poor people vote against the programs that aim to help them, he reasoned. He wasn’t arguing that most people below the poverty …

on-voter-rolls-18m-dead-people

Yesterday, my wife and I voted in the Kentucky primary election.  Since the apparent candidates for President were Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, voter turnout was very low.  When we showed up at the poll shortly after it opened, the ladies behind the table asked to see our driver’s license. In talking to the three …
