Republic Rules - The U.S.A. is a great representative republic.

An ongoing discussion of how it works… and why it works.

Not Democrat, not Republican - Constitutional Conservative

Party of the Rich?

Quick question: which party, Democrat or Republican, has greater support from “the rich”?
If you watched any of the recent wave of political commercials… and who could avoid them? … any person without hard data to refer to would answer the same to a high degree. And be wrong.
Eight out of the ten richest […]

The election results show:
Obama = 62,088,847
Romney = 58,783,137
In terms of individual votes cast, the swing was 1,652,855 out of a total of 120,871,984 votes, or 1.37%. On average, that amounts to around 33,000 voters per state… a shockingly low number defining the distinction between the two alternative paths. Each vote DOES make a […]

Election Drama

Every election cycle, it seems, we go through the same hand-wringing worries:

Will the opposition win but only through voter fraud?
Is the electoral college a fair way to determine the results?
Are the public polls accurate or biased?
Should I vote or not?

Here are some honest answers:
First, if you are legally registered to vote and are informed […]

Disgusting and Dangerous

Irresponsible musings of a self-important, self-proclaimed “intellectual”:

Not funny… even if supposedly a joke. And especially since there is spreading evidence that a violent reaction is actually being advocated.
Some not-so-subtle intimidation tactics? How about sending out some union thugs?
My choice in this election will be based on the demonstrated performance of the current […]

These days, it’s hard to go long without an outraged person declaring to the media that something is “their right”. Frequently, it turns out to be not so much a right as a demand. Rights are precious and not to be confused with wants, desires, wishes, and dreams.
Rights come with responsibilities.
In […]

Who’s Buying Votes?

Lobbying is a part of political life. The influence and money of special interest groups exerts considerable pressure on politicians to vote in harmony with their biggest campaign contributors… so, who’s buying the votes?
And who is being bought?
The Center for Responsive Politics has examined the top 100 contributors over the past 20 years […]

Equality - Part 2

I’ve previously discussed how our country is actually based on the idea that, in the eyes of Gods, all of us are created equal and the political fact that this concept has been construed to mean we should enjoy things equally.
The utopian idea that everyone should have the same things sounds great… which makes it […]

THIS Is What’s Wrong

Illinois Congressman Phil Hare says it out loud:

THIS is exactly what’s wrong with all-too-many of our elected representatives. It’s one thing to vote your conscience, to be accountable to your constituency, even to make expedient political deals… but if there’s one thing ALL elected officials must do (indeed, are sworn to do), it is […]

Governing By Gimmickry

Certainly, the political process has long been recognized as a messy one. It is a jumbled amalgamation of give and take, often unrecognizable and un-understandable before completion. However, never before in our nation’s history have I heard of nor witnessed what is happening today.
I’m sure elected officials see SOME smaller things like this […]

We’ve Been Patient Long Enough

Now is the time for action.
Regardless what happens on the health care fraud that’s being perpetrated in Washington right now, there are too many other areas where the government… and the non-contributing faction of the “citizenry” (which includes, sadly, many non-citizens)… are grabbing what rightfully belongs to the rest of us: the […]
