    "Around the country, the Republican Party is mounting legal challenges to keep third-party candidates off the ballot in November. Writer Karl Dickey reports in the Examiner that “in recent weeks, with the full support and legal assistance of the Republican Party, [Gary] Johnson's ballot status has been challenged in Michigan, Pennsylvania, the District of Columbia, Iowa and now Ohio." Gary Johnson (pictured) is the former governor of New Mexico and the Libertarian Party’s candidate for president of the United States. As of this writing, Johnson is on the ballot in 43 states."
  • Transparency and Diligence: What the Grassroots Must Do Regarding RNC Rule 12

    08/28/2012 12:30:07 PM PDT · by elephant · 30 replies ^ | Shane Wright
    The past 48 hours has been a whirlwind of activity for grassroots activist across the nation, especially here in Tampa Bay. Activist have diligently pushed for state delegations to oppose proposed changes to RNC rules. Last night there was great optimism after the RNC agreed to compromise on the rule changes in an effort to avoid a floor fight. Unfortunately as a result of that compromise, RNC proposed rule 12, which would allow the RNC to rewrite the rules post convention, free of delegate and grassroots influence, will likely stand. This new rule could be a huge blow to the...

    At the Republican convention in Tampa this week, Ann Romney made her bid to be the First Lady of the U.S. With husband Mitt going up against President Obama in the presidential race in November, Ann’s job is to get out there, get on the podium and get on with the job of making hubby look like some approximation of a human being. ........................................................ On both sides of the Atlantic, it is often more like The X Factor than a proper election fought on issues. It is 2012, not 1220, but wives are still called upon to declare undying love...
  • Has the tea party 'sold out' to the mainstream GOP?

    Is the tea party changing the Republican Party from the inside -- or selling out to the GOP? As Republicans prepare to officially roll out Mitt Romney as their party's presidential nominee at the Republican National Convention this week, major tea party groups and figures have descended on Tampa, Florida, to schmooze with party bigwigs and rally for Romney. But Romney's conservative credentials have long been viewed with suspicion by the movement. So it came as a surprise when, before at least one event, tea party organizers committed what some activists would consider heresy: seeking approval from establishment Republicans to...

    The Republican Party’s platform committee declared war on pornography ahead of this week’s Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. In a Monday morning press release, advocacy group Morality in Media revealed that “new language replaces previous platform wording, which only opposed child pornography.” According to MIM, the new wording will read, “Current laws on all forms of pornography and obscenity need to be vigorously enforced.” The party platform was drafted by a 112-member committee and will be unveiled early this week. Existing obscenity laws “not only prohibit distribution of hardcore pornography on the Internet but also on hotel/motel TV, on...
