GrokTV: Conservative Republican Candidate Home Event – Kevin Smith

by Skip August 11, 2012

Last nite, Liberty and Freedom activist Barbara Aichinger and her husband Ed opened their home to a number of Candidates that are Conservative as well as championing legislation and actions that protect and enhance Individual Liberty and Freedom.  They are willing to downsize the size and reach of Government, feeling that Government should be the […]

GrokTV Event: AFPF Defending the American Dream – NH GOP edition (sorta)

by Skip August 11, 2012

Travel 500 miles and what do you get?  NH folks who are willing to talk with you.  Earlier, it was Bill O’Brien, Speaker of the NH House that attended a couple of the workshops that the Americans for Prosperity Foundation had at its Defending the American Dream Summit 2012.  This time, it was two activists, […]

by Skip August 11, 2012

OK, time to play catch up on video not yet posted – this from last weekend from the Americans for Prosperty Foundation’s Defending the American Dream. I met first met Duane Lester (AllAmericanBlogger.com, LibertyNews.com) in Providence during a joint event held in Providence, RI by the Franklin Center and the Heritage Foundation where, among training […]

Re: It’s Game Time! Romney / Ryan vs Obama / Biden

by Scott Morales August 11, 2012

Skip,  I’m not so sure I agree with your characterization that Ryan “… is not exactly a conservative movement guy…”.  I’ve been listening to his speeches and interviews for sometime, and he provides clues that betray a good understanding of the conservative movement’s origins and principles. For starters, I think he fits into the libertarian/free […]

Because Democrat Timothy Horrigan Asked…

by Steve MacDonald August 11, 2012

Calling out Left wing hypocrisy is my meat and potatoes, so the other day, whilst asking (yet again) why anyone would trust Democrats given their party culture, I mentioned (again) that one of their current NH House candidates had previously voted here while claiming to live in another State. New Hampshire Democrat Timothy Horrigan asked […]

And on the other hand…”Paul Ryan’s plan is not good,” it is “weak tea.”

by Tim Condon August 11, 2012

Lest we all believe the cries from the insane spending Democrats, or the crafty Republicans who want to keep the government spending binge going while play-acting that they want to cut the size of our bloated governments….read on:

Paul Ryan it is: “Hiding Spending Does Not Reduce Spending” (see below)

by Tim Condon August 11, 2012

Bottom line: “We dont’ think government should be in control of all this. We think the people should be in control.” Watch this video; look at the facial expressions and body language of the two politicians to his left; look at the fear and loathing emanating from the other political class pigs around that table! YES!

America’s Comeback Team

by Skip August 11, 2012

Well, perhaps this is now a real Phase II of the Romney campaign – on the idea of “the fish rots from the head down”.  We’ve been treated to a non-stop litany of the Obama campaign trying to paint Romney as their worst nightmare – and he is.  A believer in the Free Markets (compared […]

It’s Game Time! Romney / Ryan vs Obama / Biden

by Skip August 11, 2012

Was at another event last nite and was rather tired when I got home so only a wee bit of surfing was done.  I did note that one post (somewhere) noted that a chartered plane had flown from Boston, landed in Chicago, and then made its way to an airport near Congressman Paul Ryan’s home […]

Challenge Time

by Steve MacDonald August 11, 2012

I’ve been railing on the hypocrisy of New Hampshire Democrats and they don’t like it.  But you see, it’s all their own fault.  You can’t cry wolf at every remark your opponents make, demand everyone in the opposing party denounce them anytime you think it is politically convenient for you,   and then ignore everything […]

GrokTV Event – Seacoast Republican Women Congressional Forum – Question 2

by Skip August 11, 2012

Another question from the audience related to that big bug-a-boo from the Maker / Productive class (as opposed to the Taker / Moocher / Socialist class) – taxes?  They see it as unfair that some are forced to pull the entire weight of the cost of government for all, and that it is used for […]

Romney Picks Ryan for VP (Updated)

by Steve MacDonald August 11, 2012

This morning Mitt Romney announced that Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan is his pick for VP. I’d call this a great choice.  Given that we very likley have over 200 Trillion in unfunded entitlements to deal with, and Ryan being the only guy with a well developed plan–not for cutting or gutting but for dealing with […]
