Blogger Jonathan Chait: GOP ‘Needs To Be Burned To The Ground And Rebuilt,’ And Trump Could Do The Job

February 8, 2016 by


By Tom Johnson ~ In a Friday piece, New York magazine’s Jonathan Chait delved into why he’d welcome seeing Donald Trump atop this year’s Republican ticket. First, he thinks Trump “would almost certainly lose” in November. Chait (pictured) also offered two meatier reasons. One is the possibility of permanently driving a wedge between the party’s […]

The Biggest Winners And Losers In The 2014 Elections

November 9, 2014 by


By Stephen Moore ~ The magnitude of the GOP’s tidal wave in Tuesday’s election is just coming into focus. Just as in 1994’s landslide election that gave Newt Gingrich and the GOP control of the U.S. House for the first time in half a century, the media are underplaying the rout and portraying the 2014 […]

America Is A One Party State

June 27, 2014 by


By Lawrence Sellin Ph.D. ~ The Republican Party is nothing more than the servile junior partner of an entrenched bipartisan political establishment in Washington DC that does everything in its power to extinguish representative government and thwart the will of the American people. In the Mississippi Republican primary run-off, Senator-For-Life, 76-year-old Thad Cochran was declared […]

By Tom McLaughlin ~ Who are the extremists? That’s the only question I’m left with after watching last week’s capitulation of establishment Republican “leaders” to Democrats who want to spend another trillion dollars we don’t have. Yeah, those quotes mean I don’t actually consider McConnell, Cornyn, Boehner or Cantor to be leaders. They’re surrender monkeys. […]

America’s ‘Changes’ Far Outpaced By GOP Establishment

June 29, 2013 by


By Christopher Adamo ~ Even before Barack Obama won reelection last fall, Republican insiders were beginning to chant the mantra that “This is no longer the America of Ronald Reagan.” What they did not express so openly was their delight at the prospect. And of course ever since Election Day, the vaunted GOP Establishment has […]

Does The Republican Party Have A Future?

February 16, 2013 by


By Star Parker ~ The United States, from Day One, was a project about principles and ideals. The superpower that emerged and grew from the handful of colonists that began settling here was not the product of where those colonists happened to land, but of the ideals and principles in their heads and hearts, applied […]

It’s Too Soon to Bury the Republican Party

January 14, 2013 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Last week, courtesy of CSPAN, I had the opportunity to hear a speech Patrick Buchanan gave at an event to celebrate Richard M. Nixon’s centenary. It was published on CNSnews and is well worth reading in full. Buchanan said that most of us of an advanced age were, in fact, “the […]

Conservatives Can Win Over Blacks and Latinos

November 14, 2012 by


By Star Parker ~ Disbelief is the word that defines the Republican state of mind in the wake of the 2012 re-election of President Barack Obama. The obvious questions are: “How can Americans have re-elected a president who has presided over an economy where unemployment still hovers at 8 percent ?” And, “How can Americans […]

The Grand Old Party: 1854 to 2012

August 27, 2012 by


By Alan Caruba ~ I grew up thinking that the only political party was the Democratic Party. Born a few years after Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected in 1932, he would be the only President of whom I was aware until he died in 1945, thirteen years later! A Constitutional amendment was passed to avoid […]

Who Are The Realists And Who Are The Ideologues?

September 26, 2010 by


By Star Parker The banter continues about the Republican Party being pushed to the right by “ideologues.” Working Americans’ interest in politics is motivated by how to make our lives better. They don’t care about how one set of intellectuals or pundits think the world should be against some other set of ideas of ideology. […]

Obama Shows More Integrity Than Republican Senator

September 4, 2009 by


Yesterday we did an article regarding how Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens may be stepping down at the end of the court’s current term. We mentioned how the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee had simply caved in and voted for the conformation of Sonia Sotomayor. That prompted one of our readers to comment […]

Karl Rove And The Republican Party Have Things All Wrong

August 5, 2009 by


A few months back, Salvaterra and I, along with 600 other people, attended a Republican fundraiser where Karl Rove was the featured guest speaker. Known by many as “The Architect”, Rove was Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief Of Staff to George W, Bush. During the course of his speech, one of the comments that Rove […]

American Minute – New Political Party

July 6, 2009 by


By William J Federer A decade prior to the Civil War there were two major political parties in the United States: Democrats, favoring freedom of choice to own slaves; and Whigs, wanting a big tent party. In Ripon, Wisconsin, anti-slavery activists met on February 28, 1854, then held their first State Convention in Jackson, Michigan, […]

Stayin’ Alive. Ah. Ha, Ha, Ha….

June 15, 2009 by


By John Armor. Saturday Night Fever begins with the classic scene of a very young John Travolta striding through the streets of Brooklyn. His shoes slap the pavement, his body sways to the rhythm of the Bee-Gees’ immortal song, played sotto voce, Stayin’ Alive. The story is about the attempt of the protagonist, his whole […]

A Rebirth Of The Republican Party

August 30, 2008 by


She identified herself & her group, Democrats for McCain. She said they were former Clinton supporters. They were not seeking revenge because Hillary did not receive the nomination. Once Obama was picked they considered who could best lead the country. By comparing the qualifications & experience of both, they found McCain was the Best Choice for America.

Martin Luther King Was A Republican!

June 6, 2008 by


We must act today to keep the White House in the hands of Republicans! To win the 2008 election, Republicans must accomplish this one very important goal – win just 25% of the black vote. But how do we win 25% of the black vote? Most black voters favor conservative policies – not liberal ones. […]

Military Contracts for Minnows

April 2, 2008 by


By TonyfromOz Fellow readers, I read with interest the article relating to the acquisition of new air to air refuelling tankers for the USAF, and I thought you might like some amateur insight into military contracts from an Australian point of view. Keep in mind that the whole of Australia is just slightly less in […]
