They Can Run On This

Posted in 2010 Election, 2014 Election, 2016 Election on July 16th, 2014

Dems Can Run On ACA
No! Make Them Run On This!

As we begin the planning for the upcoming 2014 midterm elections – and early stage setting for the 2016 Presidential elections – the Democrats are, of course, scrambling for platforms to run upon. My thought is to give them a “hand-out” and provide them with one – ObamaCare and their support thereof.

I think we can run on this. I think there is so much in here that has value to every American, and mostly to people who have insurance.

ObamaCare has “worked so well” that we, the People shouldn’t let the Dems run upon it; we should make them run upon it and we can do exactly that if we choose the discussion instead of letting our domestic enemies say whatever they want in order to gain or keep power over us.

Let’s make it 2010 all over again and continue the rebirth of our nation. Then we can impeach and remove Obama, Holder, and many others throughout the Executive and Judicial branches of the Obama Regime.

The States’ Party

Posted in 2008 Election, 2010 Election, 2012 Election, 2014 Election, Politics on August 30th, 2013

GOP - The American ElephantStarting in 2008 and increasingly over the intervening five years we Americans have repeatedly heard how the Republican Party was dying and how the GOP was doomed. Given their showing in the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections and also their inability to retake control of the Senate in the 2010 elections from our domestic enemies, this opinion is easy to arrive at and very seductive to the Left.

This, however, is a false assumption. It’s mere hopeful wishing on the part of the Liberals and Progressives and a tool being used by the Establishment GOP to try to maintain control of a party who has left them in favor of returning to America’s roots and core values. It has little or no basis in fact.

To start with, the GOP took control of the House of Representatives and has held that control to this date, with little thought that this will change in the 2014 elections. More important and telling is the Republican Party has been emphatically shown to the the States’ party of choice.

  • 30 states now have Republican governors vs. 20 with Democrat governors
  • 25 states now have GOP control of both the Executive and Legislature vs. 14 where DEMs control both the Executive and Legislature

Does sound or look like the GOP is moribund or does, especially when combined with the GOP’s lasting control of the House, show that the majority of Americans choose and vote Republican?

It’s a simple case of the wisdom of subsidiarity. The closer the position is to the People the more often the People chose Republicans because the closer the position is to the People the less they favor the goals and agenda of the Democrats and the less the election is skewed by the bias and prejudices of the minority voters.

This is why the Democrats and their operatives focus so heavily upon federal control of- and influence over any and matters, most of which are meant to left to the several States. They know that they’ve built their whole platform on catering the needs and desires of those minority of staunchly Liberal states to the exclusion of needs and desires of the majority of Americans. It’s also why those blue states will remain blue. The Democrats’ policies are tailored to them and do a decent job of fulfilling their wishes.

No, the Republican Party isn’t dying. It’s growing from the ground up stronger than before because it’s the States’ party.

Jobless Rate Drops

Posted in 2010 Election, 2012 Election, Politics on July 9th, 2012

The jobless rate has dropped approximately 50% faster and further in states that elected Republican leadership in the 2010 elections than the national average. In the 17 states that elected fiscally-conservative, tea party-supported GOP Governors unemployment dropped 1.35% vs. the 0.9% national average.

  • Alabama – 9.3% to 7.4% (-1.9%)
  • Florida – 10.9% to 8.6% (-2.3%)
  • Georgia – 10.1% to 8.9% (-1.2%)
  • Iowa – 6.1% to 5.1% (-1.0%)
  • Kansas 6.9% to 6.1% (-0.8%)
  • Maine 8.0% to 7.4% (-0.6%)
  • Michigan 10.9% to 8.5% (-2.4%)
  • Nevada – 13.8% to 11.6% (-2.2%)
  • New Mexico 7.7% to 6.7% (-1.0%)
  • Ohio – 9.0% to 7.3% (-1.7%)
  • Oklahoma 6.2% to 4.8% = (-1.4%)
  • Pennsylvania 8.0% to 7.4% (-0.6%)
  • South Carolina – 10.6% to 9.1% (-1.5%)
  • South Dakota – 5.0% to 4.3% (-0.7%)
  • Tennessee 9.5% to 7.9% (-1.6%)
  • Wisconsin 7.7% to 6.8% (-0.9%)
  • Wyoming 6.3% to 5.2% (-1.1%)

On thing to bear in mind, however, is that this represent correlation; it does not, at face value, represent causation. Many factors play into unemployment statistics and this is only evidence – strong evidence, admittedly – that Republican leadership is better at fixing America’s number one problem, unemployment, than the profligate spenders of the Democratic Party. It is not proof per se.

Also, these figures are based upon official unemployment numbers and those are more political fiction than reality. For all we know from this analysis it may be that a larger than average number of the jobless may have just fallen off the roles into uncounted limbo, just as a large percentage of the official average nation drop of 0.9% is made up of these poor, lost souls.

It deserves serious thought though as we go into the 2012 elections. Prima facie evidence from these 17 states certainly suggests that the GOP is the right choice for anyone wanting the economy to turn around in a reasonable time-frame.
