Donald Trump, Ann Coulter, Immigration, and Stupid People

“You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore.” – William Faulkner Over the last few weeks, ideological conservatives have separated themselves into two groups: the pro-Trumps, and the anti-Trumps. The divide between the two groups has become so stark that people are forgetting there are other options. People on both sides have begun to think in black and white, creating a false dilemma. You’re either all in for Trump, or he makes your blood boil so intensely Read more […]

Conservative Calls Ann Coulter ‘Racist’ Because He Fails to Understand Context

“The dark side of social media is that, within seconds, anything can be blown out of proportion and taken out of context. And it’s very difficult not to get swept up in it all.” – Nicola Formichetti People have been denouncing Ann Coulter for years, calling her everything under the sun: racist, bigot, Islamophobe, xenophobe, hateful, b**ch—you name it, and she’s been called it. She’s a woman who speaks truth by tossing rhetorical firebombs into crowded areas of ignorance. That gets under peoples’ Read more […]

Ann “Clickbait” Coulter Mocks Soccer, For No Good Reason

I try to avoid listening to Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and the rest of the people who make a living by dishing up hot plates of outrage to primed listeners. I have myself been given the job of drudging … er, I mean dredging … up scandals and political intrigues in order to interest my readers, whoever they may be. And I try to do this with some shred of conscience. There are plenty of things I could bring before you, complete with sensational headline, that would probably woo click-throughs Read more […]

Rand Paul to GOP: Vote “Present” on Dem Tax Hikes, Make Them Own Economy

I knew I liked Sen. Rand Paul. He has a long-term understanding of our problems. He realizes that with the outcome of this past election, the best thing for America is for Americans to realize that elections have consequences. Voting for a big government by voting for non-conservatives creates chaos. Paul knows that if congressional Republicans compromise on this “fiscal cliff” matter, they will be blamed when the economy falters. So rather than compromising, he suggests, just give the Democrats Read more […]

GOP Must Beat Dems at Own Game: Actually Cut Middle-Class Taxes Rather Than Keep Current Rates

A month ago I detailed a plan that I believed congressional Republicans should adopt for the next four years: complete compliance with the Democrats. If conservatism and the Republican Party at large are to be saved, the alternative must be seen clearly as disastrous and unacceptable. Of course, complying with Democrats will cause a lot of economic hardships for the country and financial burdens to be placed on the backs of Americans of all income levels, so the chance of Republicans agreeing Read more […]

Conservatives Slam Ann Coulter–But Why?

Jenny Beth Martin, in an article for breitbart.com, slams Ann Coulter for her latest column. In her column, Coulter tries to make the case that it wasn’t entirely Mitt Romney’s fault that he lost. She decries the Monday morning quarterbacks on the Right who said that Romney wasn’t conservative enough, or he didn’t attack Obama enough, or that he was too centrist. Coulter then uses Ronald Reagan as a contrasting example in order to back-up her opinion. Here are several quotes from Coulter’s column: “But Read more […]

72% of Small Business Owners Pick Romney–How Will You Vote?

This is it, folks. Today is Election Day, 2012. It seems like it’s been said about every election, but this is truly the most important presidential election in our lifetimes. This election will decide if we regain our standing as the world economic superpower, or we continue to fall down the rabbit hole to wonderland (also known as Greece). This election is not only about independents, but base voters as well. This election is about the middle class and the wealthy, big business and small business, Read more […]
