From RedState.com By: Daniel Horowitz, May 22nd, 2013 - If I were granted one wish about the state of today’s politics it would be for the Democrats to be saddled with their own version of John McCain. Once again, McCain is working to score points for Democrats and undermine Cruz/Paul and Lee – the “Wacko Birds” – in their attempt to prevent a free debt ceiling increase.
But the biggest news might be that although teachers unions have typically been critical supporters of the Democratic Party, a growing number of Democrats are willing to back conservative education reforms. Continue reading →

From TheHill.com, By Mike Lillis – 09/02/12 – The Democrats’ approach to gun reform is far too timid and needs a boost of courage to be effective, some leading gun-reformers are charging.
The draft language of the Democrats’ 2012 platform – set for a final vote this week in Charlotte – argues that current safeguards protecting the public against gun violence are insufficient and urges “an honest and open conversation about firearms.”
From The American Thinker, By Bruce Walker, March 17, 2008 – The Democratic Party has become the Lawyers’ Party. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are lawyers. Bill Clinton and Michelle Obama are lawyers. John Edwards, the other former Democrat candidate for president, is a lawyer and so is his wife Elizabeth. Every Democrat nominee since 1984 went to law school (although Gore did not graduate.) Every Democrat vice presidential nominee since 1976, except for Lloyd Bentsen, went to law school. Look at the Democrat Party in Congress: the Majority Leader in each house is a lawyer.
Exclusive: Ben Kinchlow reveals why African-Americans vote for Democratic Party
by Ben Kinchlow, WND.com, June 10, 2012 - President Barack Hussein Obama’s assertions that 1) “We are no longer just a Christian nation” and 2) “[W]e’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world” do not hold true for black America.
In a 2007 survey, 87 percent of African-Americans described themselves as belonging to a religious group (overwhelmingly Christian). Eighty-four percent of African-American women say religion is very important to them. Nearly 80 percent of all African-Americans say religion is very important in their lives. About one percent are Muslim, fewer than one-half percent are Jewish, and about the same for Buddhist, Hindu and other world religions. Of those African-Americans who are unaffiliated with any particular faith, 45 percent still say religion is very important in their lives. While roughly 39 percent of all Americans attend religious services at least once a week and 58 percent pray daily, 53 percent of African-Americans go to church once a week, and 76 percent say they pray every day (U.S. Religious Landscape Survey, Pew Research Center, Forum on Religion & Public Life).
From GOPUSA.com, By Henry Lamb, October 17, 2011 - America took a sharp left turn in 1912, when it elected a globalist with a strong Marxist philosophy. Woodrow Wilson, and his alter-ego, Colonel Edward Mandell House, created the League of Nations, created the Federal Reserve, created the income tax, and kicked the states out of the federal government by enacting the 17th Amendment.

Lost in all the debt ceiling hubbub are a few stories which, at first glance seem odd but on further reflection are downright bizarre. One such of these was a report by researchers at Cornell University that purports to show that exposure to the American flag causes “voters of all political persuasions [to] shift toward conservative Republican attitudes and voting behavior…even for Democrats, being exposed to the flag a single time pushes them toward the opposite end of the ideology scale.

It is hard to believe, but the Tea Party activists are already formulating lists of targets of United States Senators — both Democrats and Republicans — up for reelection in 2012. On the Republican side, the Tea Party groups will be closely watching the votes and actions (in committees on which they serve) of such Republicans up for reelection as Indiana’s Richard Lugar and Texas’ Kay Bailey Huchison, among others.
There are a number of Republican senators who should be concerned about primary challenges — who may be running for reelection in 2012 — who saw conservative Senator Bob Bennett from Utah being challenged in the Republican primaries and being defeated.
The Tea Party groups also scared Republican Senator Arlen Specter so much with their support for the now Senator-elect Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania, that he fled the party. They now are even talking about challenging conservative Utah Senator Orrin Hatch up for reelection in 2012. Continue reading →
