    Last night, I was told that a report was recently published by some DC think-tank. This report ranked members of congress in order of taxpayer-friendliness, i.e. it examined their votes on tax-related bills and determined where any particular member of congress came in on higher or lower taxes for their constituents. The same person who told me about the report told me that a whopping 75% of house and senate members from my state were in the top 20 LEAST friendly to taxpayers in their voting records. Have any of you heard of this report? Can you point me to...

  • Why Spanish Election results are irrelevent to US War on Terror

    Journalists, political pundits and other Hysteric Left activists are desperately trying to spin some cosmic significance out of Sunday's Spanish elections. The "conventional wisdom" is that the Spanish Election results are some sort of significant defeat for President Bush and the War on Terror. As usual the "News Media's" thinking is neither conventional nor wise. What all the various activists miss is the reality of American Exceptionalism. As much as the International Political Left hates, and try's to deny, the reality is the USA operates on a completely different political level then the rest of the world. On Sunday, the...

    Accuracy In Media ^ | Paul Weyrich
    The reason for my apology was that throughout this primary season we have been hearing about the record turnout of voters participating in Democrat caucuses and primaries. I bought the lie. The truth is that, except for Iowa and New Hampshire, there has not been any sort of record turnout for the Democrats. Even in New Hampshire the vote was far less than what the Republicans had when they last had a contested primary in 2000. The Democrats this year had 219,787 votes in their primary. The GOP in 2000 had 239,523 votes. That 20,000 difference is major in a...

    The general election is 10 months away, but Indiana's race for governor is already heating up. Beginning Thursday, Republican candidate Mitch Daniels will make political history in Indiana when he launches one of the earliest ever campaign commercials. They will air on television stations statewide. The Daniels campaign says it just wants to introduce its candidate as early as possible. But Democrats are questioning his timing. Still, they say Governor Joe Kernan has nothing to worry about. "It's only been a couple of months that Governor Kernan has been in office, and he has done positive things, leading the state...

    If Indiana Democrats have their way, Gary Condit won't be the only member of Congress to lose a primary this year. The difference in Indiana, however, is that they're targeting a conservative Republican. Since 1994, Mark Souder has represented Indiana's Fourth District — the Fort Wayne area in the northeast corner of the state, and a seat once occupied by Dan Quayle and Dan Coats. He's been a steady voice of conservatism in Congress, complaining about excessive spending to the point that it sometimes irritates House GOP leaders. He is also a friend to social conservatives.
