Conservative voters refuse to vote for Establishment Candidates

PieChart_KasichEarlier this week, a survey went out to Ohio Conservative voters asking them how they’d vote if presented with 4 different election scenarios;  Bush, Christie, Kasich, or Trump running against Clinton or Biden.

The results were not surprising,  as conservative voters in Ohio are angry and frustrated with the “next in line” Republican Party Establishment candidates, and their unwillingness to fight for conservative values that have been the Hallmark of Republicans for 100’s of years. Continue reading

The packed house paid close attention as Prof Strang lead us through the backgrounds and history of those judges who made these decisions. And he believed they overstepped their constitutional authority in changing the meanings of the laws that were passed rather than interpreting them.

The best 18 minutes of my life just happened on the US Senate floor

Cruz_SenateFloorTHANK YOU   THANK YOU   THANK YOU.

Many of us have been fighting on the grass roots front for years.  The most frustrating of those times is when we work our butts off to get someone elected because they say their going to fight.   After we get them elected,  they not only DON’T fight,  but they actually sign on and help with the progressive / liberal movement to the left.

After a few days of putting up with some of Ohios Establishment Republicans whining and crying as to why I spend all my time working against their republicans instead of fighting Democrats,   I had formulated my thoughts into nice expressible words: Continue reading

PREFACE – Having read the entire 47 pages, I found this brief clear and concise.  Every word and every sentence was important and had meaning (I wish I could write like this).  This made it very difficult to pull out specific language or sentences to highlight points.  I encourage everyone to download, print, and read this document.

This courts decision will forever taint the integrity of the Supreme Court. It should serve to emphasize the importance of how these judges get their job, and  the vetting and approval process they are subjected to. These 9 people are appointed to this office for the rest of their lives. Continue reading

Sen Rob Portman voted YES moves the FAST TRACK bill one step closer to allowing President Obama to authorize ALL trade agreement treaties.

We are very disappointed in Sen Portman’s stand on this,  We view that Sen Portman gave up the very power that we elected him to uphold by giving negotiating authority to the President for several years — not just President Obama and not just for the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement.  When Sen Rob Portman voted YES on this bill he fails to perform THE Constitutional role of the Congress — to act as a Check and Balance on the Executive Branch.
