Candidate Research - Rick Perry and Texas

As Rick Perry's camp insists that they are the front-runner, I've taken some time to go to Texas electronically to read up on how Government and business works there. This is how it works in the City of Houston. I promise to be equally though for all of the candidates. We can't afford another illusion. Texas has benefited from rising energy prices that other States haven't enjoyed. No doubt Tort reform is a plus but it also inhibits small businesses ability to fight this type of usurpation…

Rick Santelli Calls Out CNBC Guest For Dissing Tea Partiers (Video)

Rick Santelli, the man I call the Godfather of the Tea Party, ripped banking analyst Meridith Whitney for calling Tea Partiers 'freaked out white men who are unemployed.'

Ex-NAACP President Addresses Black Conservative Group (Video)

This video's been making the rounds since May but, I just saw it tonight. A terrific speech from Pastor C.L. Bryant, an ex-NAACP President and Tea Party Patriot who's addressing a black conservative group in Milwaukee, WI. My favorite part is when he addresses Al 'Not So' Sharpton and Ben Jealous as 'welfare wimps.'…

Debt, taxes and the rich. The way I see it

1. How long can we run the government if we corralled everything from the 400 wealthiest people in the world as reported in the Forbes 400,  including Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and the other zillionaires? This includes their yachts, corporate jets, and even their homes and any savings they might have?



Answer: 12 days. 

               The US spends $10 billion per day and total wealth of Forbes 400 is $127 billion.



2. What if we instead applied it to pay off the… Continue

The Obama's Scam "Jobs" Agenda

President Obama announced yesterday the latest market manipulation to favor veterans employment when it is this very type of tax manipulation that is destroying our Country. It's his attempt to appeal to big government Republicans. President Obama is making an outrageous assumption that the private sector would not hire and train folks coming home from active duty.…

August Recess: National Spending Addiction Month

The below list is incomplete as the critical vote was on Friday BEFORE the Budget "Control" Act vote. Only 22 Congressman voted to hold the line for Cut, Cap and Balance - an imperfect Bill but one I was willing to promote because it indeed capped. If your Congressman is not on this list, they cut and ran. http://www.redstate.com/erick/2011/07/30/the-22-who-held-the-line/ …

Key Dates in the Budget Control Act of 2011 (P.L. 112-25)

Yesterday, the President signed into law the Budget Control Act of 2011, which provides for a total debt ceiling increase of between $2.1 trillion-$2.4 trillion, sets ten-year caps on discretionary spending, creates a Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, and requires both houses of Congress to vote on a Balanced Budget Amendment. Below are key dates to keep in mind with regard to the legislation:

Who on the "right" helped fund both sides of Crony capitalism for election?

 "A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty." Winston Churchill

 

The Tea Party was heard and ignored in this Debt Ceiling fight. Our politicians were taking us 80 miles an hour off the cliff, Obama wanted to go 110 miles an hour and the GOP slowed it to 100 miles an hour.  This is a great opportunity for a post mortem and to think about future strategy. Knowledge allows us to treat the players in this…

Why the Tea Party should say "No Thanks" to Mitt Romney and Bill Bolling

Mitt Romney, the unapologetic author of Romneycare, a plan that is bankrupting Massachusetts, wants YOUR vote to fix monopoly universal, unconstitutional government run healthcare. He says he can make government work better. The State of Virginia has increased insurance mandates and subsidies to the point that health insurance is not affordable to independent, individual entreprenuers and small businesses at various points in the income spectrum. So what in Bill Bolling's mind should he do?…

Groups, orgs and politicians that helped make possibly Unconstitutional Budget Control Act law

The Budget Control Act increases spending, opens us to more taxes, increases debt AND may take away our Representative Government through a "Super-Majority" committee which has more rights and responsibilities than our Representatives and hence we have possibly unequal representation as voters and citizens. The later idea should be explored though, if true, can't be addressed in a timely fashion.

Here is the Bill. The description of the Select Committee begins on page 51. What do you…
