Rewind: Trump’s Polling A Month Before the 2016 Election

by Steve MacDonald April 2, 2018

In October 2016 Mr. Trump’s electoral circumstances were new and unique but the way he was being treated by his own party and the press were not. Dr. Matt Briggs (Ph.D. is statistics) and I have a great conversation about how the press treated Reagan in 1980 and how it may have affected polling before […]

Notable Quote – Ronald Reagan

by Skip June 3, 2017

We are a nation that has a government—not the other way around. And this makes us special among the nations of the Earth. Our Government has no power except that granted it by the people. It is time to check and reverse the growth of government which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent […]

Too bad we don’t have enough adults on campuses like him right now

by Skip April 28, 2017

University of California Berkeley is the “fabled” home of the free speech movement back in the 60s.  Nowadays, not so much as we’ve seen the political correctness/cultural Marxism reach its nadir with respect to LIMITING that same concept.  You know, some dribble about offense, safe spaces, and oppression except it hasn’t stopped at just debate […]

Notable Quote – Daniel Horowitz

by Skip November 25, 2016

The decline of faith and family in this country has led to the decline of American values and that lack of appreciation for our own history and virtue.  The misunderstanding of what is so great about America, or indeed if it is great or exceptional at all, is what is driving the elites to fundamentally […]

Notable Quote – Ronald Reagan

by Skip July 25, 2016

“Freedom is the right to question, and change the established way of doing things. It is the continuing revolution of the marketplace. It is the understanding that allows us to recognize shortcomings and seek solutions. It is the right to put forth an idea, scoffed at by the experts, and watch it catch fire among […]

Thumbnail image for Carter Will Beat Reagan 58 to 40

GOP doomsayers have not changed much in 36 years. Back in 1980 the “establishment” was convinced that only Gerry Ford could beat Carter, and that Ronald Reagan would lose.

Data Point – Reagan did more for the Middle Class than Obama has: jobs

by Skip April 30, 2015

“Trickle Down Economics versus Trickle Down Socialism …Ronald Reagan’s economic plan saw GDP surge at a 3.5% clip – 4.9% after the recession. That’s a 32% bump. …The US economy has grown an anemic 9.6% during the Obama years (excluding today’s dismal number).” In comparison to Reagan, Obama has shown to be a far worse manager of the US economy.  […]

So why does the Government keep trying to use the US Constitution to limit US?

by Skip November 18, 2014

As in “separation of church and State” when people try to exercise their Free Expression?  The US Constitution was to limit Government, not citizens.  It was to be OUR tool to keep Government in line; too often it seems that Government laws and regulations “supersede” our foundational law and are being used to keep US […]

Ronald Reagan’s observation still holds true today

by Skip July 9, 2014

The only problem, “their” idea of family values seem far fetched from the traditional ones and I haven’t seen much in the way of Progressive governance (especially under Obama’s Administration) that says “stronger” – all indications are to the contrary.  As to intrusiveness, well, Michelle has that example all locked up with her overwhelming urge to tell […]

The TEA Party is dead! Long live the TEA Party!

by Skip April 23, 2014

From the Washington Examiner (emphasis mine)” Tea Party candidate Curt Clawson won the Republican primary in the special election seat to replace Rep. Trey Radel, R-Fla., who resigned after pleading guilty for cocaine possession, a victory that the Tea Party Express is claiming as “the movement’s first victory of 2014.” Clawson received 46 percent of […]

I know that those in politics try to rewrite history all the time…

by Skip March 2, 2014

Grokster Scott had this post about mindless Democrat drones; let me take a snippet from it: …Democrats succeed when people on the ground are empowered with information (we’ll take care of that part) and are mobilized to get that information out to their communities… Er, there can be a price to be paid if one […]

We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on Earth, or we will sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness. – President of the United States, Ronald Reagan.   Are we close to or at that tipping point?  (H/T: Blackfive)

“It would be immoral and the height of folly to infer these people are less patriotic than ourselves. They are sincerely motivated by the most humanitarian of ideals. But it would be equally foolish to let them have their way without opposition. If someone is setting fire to the house, it doesn’t really matter if […]

Death by Gun Control….

by Tim Condon June 20, 2013

One of the issues supported by statists everywhere is  “gun control.” In fact, a rolling caravan came into New Hampshire the other day to “read the names of victims of gun violence” (courtesy of New York city’s fake Republican Michael Bloomberg, among others). Well…does anyone besides me wonder why they don’t travel around reading the […]

So, which do YOU think is the correct philosophy?

by Skip March 16, 2013

US President Ronald Reagan (R-CA): “Government exists to protect us from each other.  Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves?“ NH State Rep. Kris Roberts (D-Keene):  “Government has to protect us from our own stupidity.” One takes the attitude that Citizens are stupid and must be herded […]

Jeb Bush On This “Temporary” Hyper-Partisan Moment

by Steve MacDonald June 12, 2012

Jeb Bush is out there shilling for compromise. “Ronald Reagan would have, based on his record of finding accommodation, finding some degree of common ground, as would my dad — they would have a hard time if you define the Republican party — and I don’t — as having an orthodoxy that doesn’t allow for […]
