  • Asa Hutchinson up 8 in Conservative Intel Poll of AR governor's race

    Conservative Intel ^ | 8/7/13 | David Freddoso
    Former Republican Congressman and Drug Czar Asa Hutchinson (at right) holds an eight-point lead over his Democratic rival for governor, former Democratic Rep. Mike Ross, D. The two men are vying to replace Gov. Mike Beebe, D, who defeated Hutchinson for the job in 2006 but cannot run again due to term limits. The Conservative Intel poll of Arkansas, whose Senate results were released yesterday, was conducted by Harper Polling and surveyed 587 likely voters in the state...

  • ZOT! The 400 Richest Americans Pay An 18% Tax Rate

    07/26/2011 11:01:49 AM PDT · by moshiach · 141 replies
    The 400 richest Americans used to pay 30% of their income on the average to Uncle Sam. Today, they pay 18% on the average. The main reason for the drop in their tax rate of some 40% is the tax cuts by George Bush in 2003, taking the rate paid on dividends and capital gains down to 15%.

    Townhall.com ^ | May 11, 2011 | John Stossel
    The man who likely has done more than anyone to put the libertarian philosophy of freedom and small government on the political agenda probably will make another run for the presidency: U.S. Rep. Ron Paul. Paul is always upbeat, but lately he's had more reason to be, as he sees libertarian ideas bubbling up from the grass roots. "People outside of Washington are waking up," he told me, "and they're getting the attention of a few in Washington." Paul has been in Congress more than 20 years, and much of that time he's played a lonely role, often being the...

    Campaign for Liberty ^ | 2010-01-20 | U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, 14th District
    As we start the new year 2010, the establishment politicians, economists and Wall Street are trying to convince themselves that we have turned the corner and economic growth has once again begun. The predictions that conditions are getting back to normal come from those who never saw the crisis coming and don't have the vaguest notion what caused it. Some of them concede that it could be a jobless recovery. That will establish a new definition for a recovery. Official unemployment is at 10% but even the government knows that if everyone is counted, including those individuals that are too...

    Sarah is now unelectable on a national stage. The “quitter” specter will hang around her neck like “swimmer” does to Ted Kennedy. You’ll be able to spot the realistic, clear thinking conservatives because they see and admit this early so we can put it behind us get on with identifying the candidates who can win in ‘12. BTW - This doesn’t rule out a tangential private career ala Newt or a run for a House or Senate seat (although I don’t know where at this point) but as a national candidate she is toast. That so many conservatives can’t see...
  • Ease Up on B.Obama

    self
    Everyone is pilling on Obama right now. I'm afraid of two things: blowing the utility of the dirt too soon before the election and getting stuck with Hillary instead. Obama is the easier one for McCain to beat. I don't care what polls say right now. He'll be much easier when it's a one on one show. Hillary would be much tougher to defeat than Obama. Also, getting all this J.Wright stuff out there now may make the media and public numb to it before election day when it is more important.

    During the last California primary election I posted discussion threads for region relevant candidates and measures, called CA Freepers Voter Guides. http://www.freerepublic.com/~emat/ http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/search?m=all;o=time;s=Freepers%20Voter%20Guide These posts were well received by friends, family, and fellow Freepers, and they even received some modest media attention: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1653731/posts http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1653731/posts?page=26#26 However, I noticed last time the resulting discussions would have worked better in a style similar to the state message boards (e.g.: http://www.freerepublic.com/perl/profiles?location=53 ), because with election information it is important to see the most up-to-date comments first, and Freepers need to be able to delete or amend their statements as they receive new information. However,...

    Has anyone seen The Defender? It's an action movie with Dolph Lundgren. But it has a good political plot. It's really smart--for a Dolph Lundgren film. The story is mainly about a national security team that has to protect the secretary of defense while she has a secret meeting with a terrorist. I don't want to give any of the good plot twists away, but it's a quite a shocker.

    On Tuesday, May 10, 2005, America became a true police state. Your U.S. senators voted -- unanimously, with no discussion, and without even reading the bill -- to create a national ID card. The Real ID Act blackmails state governments into turning their drivers licenses into a draconian tool of the federal homeland security apparatus. If states refuse, their citizens lose such "privileges" as being allowed to board an airplane, enter a federal building, or apply for social security. President Bush is expected to sign the bill eagerly on Thursday. In three years -- by May 2008 -- this Stalin-style...

I never expect a response from the Mod or expect what I report on to be acted upon...I use it simply as a, "Hey I saw this and maybe you should know about it" kinda tool.

    <p>I just heard that Bush and company is trying to pass a law that adds extra taxs to cheap beer like Milwaukee best and naturl light. He is going to raise the taxs on these bears by a nikel so he can recoop his money loses in the irag war. He and his old guys party the repitleublicans want to sock to the little guy and college guys like me who can only offord cheap bear and not the good stuff like all you chumps drink that sam adems and budwizer and coors lite and other big shot drinks. Give me a brake. Bush is not going to tax those bears because all his rich buddys drike them so he will tax all the people that didnt vote for him in the erection of 04. It is pay back for us not cow towing to his right wing aganda that only serves to destory the poor and working stifs like me and my mom and dad. So when I go to by some natey lite toniht with my fake id (scew the govement!!!) I will stock up and by maybe 3 or4 cases to hold me over so Bush won't be able to tax me and my bear and get himself out of that mess of a war in the muddle east. If I were you I would do the same and show Bush and his company of hooligans that we can't be taxed and tricked like little cirus animals that are beaten to dance and do tricks for use humans. Have a good day and don't let them know your on to them, that you know that they are trying to keep us down. Slowly now slowly we turn the tide!!!!</p>

    Well, that time has come for me. I’m leaving FR. However, I do not consider this an “opus”, as I am NOT going to use it to rehash old slights or arguments, or to give my personal opinion of what “should be done around here”. As has been so often pointed out, this is Jim Robinson’s site, and he runs it as he sees fit. Rather, all I’m going to do here is give a general reason for my departure, and say a hearty-but-sad “GOODBYE!” to all the folks here who have enriched my life in the past four years....

    My name is Mary Katherine, and I reside in the state of Ohio. I am a registered Republican. I grew up in a small town with very strict parents, attend church every Sunday, and have generally tried to live a good and decent life. I have been married for 15 years, have 3 children, and I am a stay at home mother. I am personally opposed to abortion, I believe in small government, and I cheered when welfare was overhauled. I am personally opposed to gay marriage, and I deeply believe this country needs to do more about the divorce...
