That's terrific!For those who missed it, I hope you'll take a look and consider it.If you live in Florida, you must act by Tuesday, January 3rd, to vote as a Republican in Florida's presidential … Continue reading Have you considered my “unorthodox suggestion?”
I suggest that my friends in Florida who are registered as Democrats or NPA (no party affiliation) change their party affiliation on their voter registration to Republican.Why? Because Florida is a “closed primary” state so only people registered as members of a particular political party can vote in that party’s primary election.Do you want to … Continue reading An unorthodox suggestion
Just about everyone I know who voted for Obama is disappointed with him. He should have held out for a bigger stimulus package. He shouldn’t have bailed out the banks. He’s going too easy on Wall Street. He should have supported Simpson-Bowles. He hasn’t done enough for the environment. He should never have taken on health … Continue reading Liberal gloom

We need EACH of them to … Continue reading Not disappointed by President Obama
Earlier this year, my state passed new, tougher election laws, largely along party lines. The Republican-controlled Legislature said they were needed to prevent voter fraud and reduce costs. Democrats said they were meant to make it even harder for the poor, the elderly, the disabled, students and others to vote. Whatever the reason, it WILL … Continue reading Will you be allowed to vote on Election Day?
I’m planning to watch the NBC/Politico Republican candidates’ debate tonight. Most pundits say that despite the fact that there will be eight candidates on stage (Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, and Rick Santorum), it’s really a two-way race between Perry and Romney.Romney set the stage yesterday … Continue reading Mitt Romney’s plan
