I am a conservative. I believe in the truth of traditional values, of limited government, and free markets.
And I believe in personal freedom and that it is not possible without all the above.
Our country has been going in the opposite direction and things, predictably, have not been going well. more >>
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice called the use of the race card by Democrats in the recently concluded midterm elections "appalling" and said she hoped President Barack Obama got the message after Democrats were thoroughly thrashed at the polls Tuesday.
"I don't know what's in his mind but I have to say that I hope that what he plans to do is to take the message that the American people don't like the course that we're on and there has to be change," said Rice in an interview with Brian Kilmeade on Fox News Thursday.
"He's gonna have to work with Republicans not just to do the things that the president wants to do but to do the things in a bipartisan fashion that need to be done for the American people," she added. more >>
Some pundits have described the 2014 midterms as a base-turnout election, arguing that Republicans did a better job than Democrats turning out their base voters. The exit polls do not support this view, however.
The Republican base turned out at about the same rate as in 2012. Republicans won most their races on Tuesday by expanding its base with demographic groups that voted Democrat in 2012.

Conservative pundit and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson said progressive policies have halted progress in the black community and warned that the GOP needs to ensure that they have a plan to address this lack of progress after likely wins in midterm elections Tuesday.
Speaking on the Hannity Show in a recent Fox News interview Carson addressed comments made by economist Ben Stein who charged that President Barack Obama is the "most racist president" America has ever seen.
Stein argued in a clip from an earlier interview on Fox News that: "More people are on food stamps than ever. More people are getting welfare than ever. What cuts are they talking about? More people are getting government subsidized healthcare than ever. What cuts are they talking about? It's all a way to racialize voting in this country. This president is the most racist president there has ever been in America. He is purposely trying to use race to divide Americans. Anyone who investigates it even a little bit knows it's hogwash." more >>
Actor, economist and conservative political pundit Ben Stein recently ripped into President Barack Obama calling him America's "most racist president" for engaging in racial politics to get the black vote.
In a Fox News interview on Monday, Stein was asked to comment on a poll that highlighted that the economy was the most important concern of voters going into the midterm elections Tuesday, Stein disagreed with the poll and charged that Obama and the White House had made the elections about race.
"With all due respect, I disagree with your poll," said Stein. "I think [the economy] is what people are saying is their most important issue, but I think what the White House is doing is trying to racialize all politics; and they're especially trying to tell the African-American voter that the GOP is against letting them have a chance at a good life in this economy, and that's just a complete lie." more >>
Christians prompted by churches and a host of faith-based advocacy organizations to exercise their right to vote and help shape America's culture and future, are expected to flood the polls in the name of Jesus Tuesday.
From abortion to racial justice, Christians prompted by churches and a host of faith-based advocacy organizations to exercise their right to vote and help shape America's culture and future, are expected to flood the polls in the name of Jesus and a long list of other causes Tuesday.
"We wanted to encourage our people to register to vote and to vote. We believe that voting is a Christian responsibility in the government that we live in. We are the government. We can't blame the country's problems on someone else except for ourselves," said Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel in an interview with The Christian Post Monday. more >>
