Nobody is perfect; I’m one of the furthest from it. I choose mainly not to preach or proselytize for that reason. I am not the most pious or devoted. I fail and sin continuously, and probably don’t even acknowledge that enough. I’m not in the pew every Sunday morning. You get the point. However, there is an open (frequently read) Bible on the table in … Continue reading Pro-Lives
“I’m conservative, but I’m not a nut about it.” –President George H.W. Bush I don’t know about you, but I constantly have to remind myself that not everyone loves politics as much as I do. People have better things to do. They have more important things to worry about; things that, frankly, the current two candidates haven’t been addressing. They don’t watch 3 hours of … Continue reading Let’s Never Do This Again
It wasn’t by choice or his own revelation, but you’ve probably heard the story that recently circulated about President George H.W. Bush. At a “private” event for his charitable foundation, 41 was taking photos in a meet-and-greet line. One his foundation members snapped a picture and posted it with a caption that rocked the news cycle: “The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!” The … Continue reading Is George H.W. Bush the Flood Gatekeeper?
Let’s call it like we see it: this has been an awful, no-good, terrible week for Hillary Clinton and her campaign. Everything that could have gone wrong has done so. First of all, Mr. Trump found a little bit of discipline; actually, Kellyanne Conway found it for him. Second, the issue of Hillary’s health has flared up in a big way. Third, a tightening of … Continue reading Can Trump Win?
Libya. Ukraine. Russia. The Syrian Red Line. Iran. Benghazi. ISIS. The Clinton “footprint” around the globe is not a clean one. The results are not stellar. We witness attacks in France, San Bernardino, and Orlando. We seek strong leadership, and a vision for the world that is anchored by American leadership. Foreign policy should not be a winning issue for Hillary Clinton; yet, it is. … Continue reading Losing on Foreign Policy
Nestled in the Northeastern part of the state, bordering the Virginia state line, you’ll find the 1st congressional district of North Carolina. It is a fairly vast territory, encompassing all of Halifax County, and large swaths of those surrounding it. Durham, and Warrenton, Tarboro, and Windsor– the cities, as well as the demographics, are various. Half-urban, half-rural, the 1st district is almost split down the … Continue reading Libertarian Candidate in North Carolina Looks to Change History
Now that we’ve made it past the conventions and polls are bouncing up and down (mainly up for Clinton and down for Trump), I want to take a look at the groups that voters seem to be moving into. New surveys come out daily that show vast dissatisfaction with the state of the race. According to recent CNN, CBS, and NBC polls, only 34% of … Continue reading The Homestretch
I’ve been stunned recently at what I’ve heard. I’ve seen some severely left-wing policy proposals coming out of the presidential campaign. The liberalism I read about and see on television every day isn’t just applied to one topic; it is crossing over into issue after issue. You’d think after 8 years of the Obama administration the country would want to pulled back from the left … Continue reading Liberalism Abounds
