  • Petition: Calling on 2nd place GOP candidate in primary to back Mark Sanford and keep SC1 red

    We need help in SC-01. Mark Sanford is running slightly behind Democrat Elizabeth Colbert-Busch thanks to a ton of Nancy Pelosi's money. Now we could debate whether Sanford was the best candidate or not for Republicans but it is what it is. The 2nd place guy, Curtis Bostic, has many supporters pledging to write in his name. Even Bostic's son is encouraging it on his Twitter account. We need to encourage Bostic to do the right thing and discourage his supporters from writing in any name and encourage them to vote for Mark Sanford (even if it's not an "endorsement"...

    Are you a Mark Sanford supporter? Would you like to see him in Congress or would you like someone else? My favorites... Mark Sanford & John Kuhn -- Both fiscal hawks. Kuhn has a record of fighting against GOP against big-spending in the state Senate. Larry Grooms -- State Senator with a good voting record. A good "well-rounded" candidate. Curtis Bostic -- Social conservative but strong fiscal conservative reputation too Ray Nash -- A former Sheriff who is very conservative. Chip Limehouse -- A state representative with a lot of establishment ties and big money backing. Not such a hot...
  • Gas Lines are Not Sandy’s Fault

    11/03/2012 11:31:27 AM PDT · by daniel885 · 27 replies ^ | 11/3/2012 | Jeffrey Tucker
    (Article is posted in its entirety under a Creative Commons 3.0 Attribution License) It’s crazy in New York and New Jersey, and commentators are mystified. Hurricane Sandy was bad enough. That’s a natural disaster, and we are dealing with it. But then came the unnatural disaster in the form of the government’s response. This is where the real catastrophe begins. Check out the mess in New Jersey. The New York Times reports that “widespread gas shortages stirred fears among residents and disrupted some rescue and emergency services as the New York region struggled to return to a semblance of normalcy...

    Please vote for ***MIKE ROSE*** in this poll: Background: South Carolina has open primaries and this leads to the inevitable problem of having "RINO"s invade our primary. This time the other side is sending in a real-estate development backed guy to push for more government intervention in the economy. Sean Bennett said in last night's debate "Public-private partnerships are what made this country great." No, Mr. Bennett, the FREE MAKRET is what made this country great. Mike Rose is the ONLY "Taxpayer Hero" left in the Senate representing the Charleston, SC area. He was one of only 11 state...

Mike Rose is the Charleston, SC area's ONLY Club for Growth "Taxpayer Hero" and his opponent, Sean Bennett, said tonight at the debate: "Public-private partnerships are what make this country great" (i.e. he's a lapdog of crony capitalism) South Carolina cannot afford to lose a conservative vote in the Senate to this RINO. And Sean Bennett has his army out stuffing ballots. Please go to and vote for ***Mike Rose*** (the other conservatives in the poll are Jordan Bryngelson...

  • Obama Pocket Veto Illegal and Would Set Dangerous Precedent

    10/07/2010 2:20:33 PM PDT · by daniel885 · 28 replies
    Obama's pocket veto today is a dangerous precdent where Obama is basically asserting the right to an absolute veto (without the power to override) even when Congress is in session. Pocket vetoes can only be done when Congress isn't in session. But go to The Senate will convene tomorrow morning at 11:30 and also just convened on Tuesday. Here's what the Constitution says... "If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the same shall be a Law, in like manner as if he had...

    The New York Times is saying hundreds of thousands are at the National Mall... BUT... you have to give equal credit to Al Sharpton because half of the people must be there for that... "Two political foes – Glenn Beck and the Rev. Al Sharpton Jr. – are gathering hundreds of thousands of their supporters on the National Mall today for simultaneous rallies commemorating the anniversary of the March on Washington."

  • House GOP No. 2: Someone shot at my office

    03/25/2010 9:42:42 AM PDT · by daniel885 · 54 replies · 1,206+ views
    Rep. Eric Cantor, the number two Republican in the House of Representatives, said Thursday that a bullet had been shot through a window at his district office in Richmond, Virginia. He also said he had received threatening messages. He said he would not publicly release the messages out of concern that doing so would only incite further violence. He also accused Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine and Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland - a member of the Democratic House leadership - of "fanning the flames" of violence by using threats that have been made against Democratic members "as...

  • House GOP should offer Stupak language using "Motion to Recommit with Instructions"

    03/20/2010 10:03:46 PM PDT · by daniel885 · 12 replies · 823+ views
    The House cannot pass a special rule on legislation that restricts the minority from offering a motion to recommit with instructions (even on a closed rule). A motion to recommit with instructions is a way to effectively amend legislation. (The whole House instructs the committee that reports the legislation to amend the bill a certain way and report it immediately back to the House "forthwith") The Republicans have, therefore, one shot at offering an amendment even when amendments are prohibited. They should offer the Stupak amendment. Why? Two reasons. If the House amends the Senate language, it has to be...

    In a suburb of Charleston, SC this morning I was out to vote. It's a very red precinct and the lines were long. It took about an hour and a half to vote. I'm working in a VERY VERY blue area of the state and have come across only one person whose voted so far. She said she thought it would be busy so she was there fairly early but walked right up to vote with NO WAIT AT ALL! Take that for what it's worth

    Associated Press ^ | 10-29-2008 | CALVIN WOODWARD
    WASHINGTON (AP) - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was less than upfront in his half-hour commercial Wednesday night about the costs of his programs and the crushing budget pressures he would face in office. Obama's assertion that "I've offered spending cuts above and beyond" the expense of his promises is accepted only by his partisans. His vow to save money by "eliminating programs that don't work" masks his failure throughout the campaign to specify what those programs are - beyond the withdrawal of troops from Iraq. A sampling of what voters heard in the ad, and what he didn't tell...

    I have no idea where Obama was born but this ridiculous that Obama just ignored a court order to produce a birth certificate. Will somebody with better legal knowledge help me understand how Obama ignores the court order and the same day wins the lawsuit? If I were sued for something, and I didn't respond to the lawsuit, I would automatically lose and have a judgment entered against me. NewsMax says he ignores lawsuit Then Judge rules in favor of Obama and calls claims "ridiculous" and "patently false"
  • Obama Crossing the Line with Negotiating an End to the Iraq War?

    07/21/2008 7:36:50 PM PDT · by daniel885 · 15 replies · 56+ views ^ | 7/21/2008 | Daniel
    My question is this: Does anyone else think that Barack Obama is crossing a line here by going to Iraq and pushing them to accept his idea of a timetable? Has anyone else noticed that this seems to be pulling the rug out from under the President on Iraqi war policy and that is NOT the job of a Presidential candidate to go abroad and do. What gives him the right to negotiate an end to the war? He hasn't been elected to do that even if the media wants to annoint him as Commander-in-chief.

    With gas prices as high as they are, wouldn't it seem reasonable to cut gas taxes or maybe just temporarily suspend them with a "gas tax holiday"? Well the Democrat Congress says "no way!" Instead what we are hearing this weekend are ideas the Democrats are brainstorming on how to raise gas taxes! Seriously! The American Road & Transportation Builders Association wants the Democrats to raise gas taxes by 11¢ per gallon and raise it annually to keep up with the rate of inflation. (You know to make sure we get that tax increase automatically every single year!) The Democrats...
  • Democrats Believe High Gas Prices are Good

    07/17/2008 8:39:08 PM PDT · by daniel885 · 2 replies · 89+ views ^ | 7/18/2008 | Daniel Encarnacion
    Well, as everyone knows, gas prices are pretty high. And most people want them lower. Notice I said “most people.” I say that because there have actually been people I’ve run into who do not want them lower. And I was confused. Do many people really feel this way? Actually they’re not as few and far between as you might think; in fact, it’s the official policy of the Democrat leadership in the Congress and Barack Obama. The policy is called "being green" or in otherwords, being a 21st century tree-hugger. They don't pitch the phrase "High Gas Prices!!" but...
  • Economy on Edge: What Government Needs to Do

    07/15/2008 9:09:19 PM PDT · by daniel885 · 4 replies · 53+ views ^ | 7/15/2008 | Daniel Encarnacion President Bush today met with reporters who were asking about the seemingly troubled American economy. He tried to reassure the American people that its government will do all it can. But is that what we really want? More government interference? The economic stimulus package did nothing but provide a short term spending spree that fizzled away. Businesses did not expand production or add new jobs because they knew it would be short term. To worsen things, it inflated our deficit and added to the national debt essentially inflating our currency also. Lower interest rates have poured money into our...
  • Barack Obama's Changing Views: Is this Change We Can Believe In?

    07/14/2008 8:27:36 PM PDT · by daniel885 · 7 replies · 113+ views ^ | 7/14/2008 | Daniel
    Candidates generally move towards the center and away from their more ideological extremes after a primary and moving into a general election, but there's something different about this. Barack Obama isn't just chaning the way he talks, or changing a view here or there to "refine" his positions; he's changing virtually everything! (Exception: he's still for raising taxes apparently, but I digress.) See Barack Obama is untested, having served less than a term in the Senate. We really have no idea how he would govern except based on what he says. But the fact is, you can't trust anything he...
