The other day I and a coworker were assigned a special assignment which basically meant we stood next to each other for two hours and talked politics. My coworker, Andrew, is a hardcore Libertarian. I generally agree with Libertarians on … Continue reading
I’ve heard it repeated it for years. “When the Republican party runs moderates we lose. When we run real conservatives we win.” Reagan recommended the Republicans paint in “bold colors” rather than “pastels” to offer voters a clear choice, that … Continue reading
The NYT’s, that bastion of unbiased reporting…cough, has a story today entitled “Divisions in G.O.P. Are Laid Bare on First Day of Conservative Conference”. The largest annual gathering of Republican activists began here Thursday with appearances by rival presidential hopefuls … Continue reading
