by Steve MacDonald June 17, 2017

From Legal Insurrection: After Seattle’s Gun Tax: Lost Jobs, Little Revenue, More Violent Crime. Is anyone who is not a liberal surprised?

Notable Quote – a philosophical alternative (to what we have now) vision for Government

by Skip January 27, 2017

From Reason.com (emphasis mine): Clearly, we need a government that spends less and does less but also appeals to most Americans of whatever ideological persuasion. We know what sort of operating system has improved our commercial, cultural, and personal lives: It’s one that flows directly from libertarian ideas about maximizing options for individuals and the […]

Liberal Zombies Endorse Paul Ryan as Hill’s VP Pick

by Scott Morales July 25, 2016

Low information voters, otherwise known as Democrat progressive voters, support Hillary’s choice of Paul Ryan for VP.  Yes, you read that right.  Watch Mark Dice interview the brain dead.  But be ready to cringe when it sinks in that their vacuous vote counts just as much as yours does.

The purpose of the Left is to destroy traditional Morality

by Skip April 25, 2016

How many of us have looked around and said that I don’t recognize our country anymore?  Actions, behaviors, and words that would never have been carried out, brazenly done, and dirtily spoken are seemingly the norm nowadays.  Things that were “bad” are now glorified, that were done in secret because they were shameful now get […]

Thumbnail image for It’s Time To Challenge Our Lazy, Politically Homogeneous Teachers

Breitbart Whether liberal, libertarian or conservative, we’re united by one common belief: students should be able to read what we want, watch what we want, play the video games we want, and most importantly, think what we want. And if colleges refuse to expose us to new ideas by employing politically homogeneous faculties, we’ll do the hard work ourselves, […]

by Skip February 14, 2016

Over at the Concord Monitor, a Tom Shamberg (a flaming Progressive from his voting record in the NH Legislature and ratings), is all about having the State take on the responsibility and cost for all of NH’s Education (hey, that’s what Progressives do – take away control but make everyone else pay for it).  From […]

“The whole enchilada”

by Susan Olsen April 12, 2015

” I need to know two things about anyone’s political system: Does it prioritize human freedom, or human coercion?” Lets take a moment to consider political labels. All too often, they are used as simple pejoratives, not the least by me. If we’re talking and I tell you “You’re so progressive!”, chances are it isn’t […]

Nancy Stiles has another mailer out, in which she is sold as a leader who is tough on Liberal Democrats.  (I almost spit my coffee out I laughed so hard.) The mailer obviously says things Republicans would like to hear from or about a candidate but all of that pales next to the one thing […]

Do you remember the Our State Project and FreeState Watch?  These were fledgling inquisitions operated by modern-day Torquemadas of the so-called non-profit progressive left.  Their mission was to find and persecute non-progressives by labeling them as ideological infidels; opponents of the endless, debt-driven expansion of the  taxpayer funded Democrat Ummah.  After all, who would want […]
