Is There a Way to Save Traditional Marriage and Solve the Equality Issue? Conservatives Should Try

Tuesday April 22, 2014
If conservatives want to save traditional marriage, a new strategy is in order. In fact, it's a strategy that could potentially bring both sides together by returning marriage to churches and offering up equality in the law. Up until 2012 it was okay to be against gay marriage. Barack Obama was against it in 2004 in his first US Senate race when he argued that "My religious faith dictates marriage is between a man and a woman, gay marriage is not a civil right." When he ran for President in 2008 he said he believed "marriage is the union between a man and a woman. As a Christian it's also a sacred union." When Obama changed his mind on the issue in 2012, suddenly any person who did not immediately change with him would be attacked as "hateful."

Issues 2014: Obamacare/Economy vs Wages/Equal Pay

Wednesday April 16, 2014

The stage has pretty much been set for what issues both liberals and conservatives want to talk about in 2014.

Conservatives obviously want to talk about Obamacare. A lot. Jobs will also be a top issue once again.

Liberals want to talk about "Equal Pay" and the minimum wage and more and more and more and more government. But mostly they want to set conservatives up to either say something stupid or say something that can in some way be made to be stupid.

Ben Carson for President?

Thursday April 10, 2014

Earlier today, the main group "urging" a Hillary for President campaign - and offering up creepy bumper stickers and apparel - noted they raised $1.7M in the first 3 months of 2014. The group has raised less than $6M since their launch roughly a year ago. That's not really great for a candidate dominating her primary opoonents and leading most of the Republicans. Which brings us to....

Ben Carson. He's never been a US Senator, Congressman, or Governor like most US Presidents in recent history. He's never even tried for elective office, and so the US Presidency seems like a bit of a stretch. Yet Dr. Ben Carson is quietly building a formidable support base that could yield results in 2016. In fact, a group supporting his efforts raised an impressive $3M-ish in just 6 months last year, putting the Carson draft neck-and-neck with the ready for Hillary crowd.

One Night with Obamacare

Monday March 31, 2014

It's one thing to talk about Obamacare.

It's another thing to actually navigate it in a real life situation. I was forced to do that last night, and the failure that is Obamacare lived up to the hype. And the word affordable? Affordable to whom? At the end of the day, there was not a sign-up... but it doesn't mean we weren't counted as an enrollee.
