We are not the spoilers, we are the first vote!!!!

Finally! Finally, we get to see Gary Johnson fired up. I am so glad to see the passion and fire (that we all know Gary has) come out in this interview. He is only lacking a few points to get in the debates, so please share this and share Gary’s message. Voting for the lessor of two evils is still voting for evil!

It is Time for Liberty

So, like many of the Libertarians out there, I disagree with Gary Johnson on some of the issues lately. I understand the argument that he is Republican lite. On the issues, I would have preferred Austin Petersen as the standard bearer of the party; however, there is no doubt Johnson will have not only more…

How Donald Drumpf can Save the GOP

If there is one thing we know about the 2016 Primary race, it has been unconventional and unpredictable.  That is true for both the Republicans and the Democrats.  Donald Drumpf has thrown the entire process on its head, and the party establishment has no idea how to respond or figure out a way to wrestle…

Talking Super Tuesday Blues

I think it is important not to simply take everything a candidate says at face value, but to challenge them to defend their statements.…

Ted Cruz Invites Open Dialogue to Code Pink Protesters

I have to admit, I like a lot about Ted Cruz, but there is a lot I don’t like. I think he takes some issues over the top, but he seems to stand on principle and refuses to waiver. That alone is refreshing and great to see in the political area. I know most of what he does and says is very calculated, and even though he complains about the political theater in Washington, it is very clear he has a penchant from the dramatic himself. Here is an impromptu engagement he has with some Code Pink protesters at one of his recent rallies. Rather than try to have the protesters dragged away, he brings them up and has a discussion with them. Classy move.
