The Stupidity of the GOP

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Republicans have already given away the farm.

Imagine a teenager goes on a shopping spree with his dad’s credit card one month and unalterably charges the card with hundreds of thousands in expenditures. Then, the next day at the supper table, he passes his dad a note saying he is willing to help balance the family’s budget. You are as foolish as that dad if you are taken in by the GOP’s vote this week on a balanced budget amendment.… Continue Reading

The $1.3 Trillion Omnibus Spending Bill: NeverTrumpers Squeal With Joy

Written by John Biver

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) would not have signed the massive spending bill last Friday if he were president.

Ed Straker at American Thinker lists a series of Tweets by Ted Cruz that lay out some of the truly ugly/awful/terrible and inexcusable contents found in that $1.3 trillion-dollar budget.

Reasserting the Purpose of the U.S. Military

Written by Micah Clark

President Donald Trump may have disappointed many who wish the Republican Party would remember it’s smaller government principles with his signing of the Omnibus-spending bill.  At least he hasn’t’ forgotten the basic principles of our U.S. Military.

McConnell and Ryan Should Resign

Written by Walker Wildmon

Republicans in Congress passed and President Trump signed a 2,200 page $1.3 trillion dollar budget. To say this bill is bad is an understatement. Haven’t you heard this all before? It seems like every other month I’m writing about how Congress passed a horrible budget deal. That’s because this isn’t the first time we’ve crossed this bridge.

The $1.3 Trillion Omnibus Spending Bill: President Trump will Hear Conservatives, Unlike Governor Rauner

Written by John Biver

Many Fiscal conservatives need to be talked off the ledge since President Donald Trump signed the massive $1.3 trillion budget that Congress dumped on his desk.

Unfortunately, President Trump signed the bill, though he is listening to those who wanted him to veto it.

Trump isn’t Bruce Rauner, who claimed on election night last week that he “heard” the message 48.6% of Republican voters voiced by siding with Jeanne Ives.… Continue Reading

What’s the Deal With Congressional Republicans?

Written by Brian C. Joondeph

Every few months, Republicans behave stupidly, causing their voters to again ask themselves, “Why vote Republican?”  Supporting congressional Republicans seems an exercise in futility – Lucy holding the football for Charlie Brown, ready to kick a conservative field goal, only to have Lucy pull the football away at the last second.  I have asked this question several times

We all know the words to the Republican song we have heard every two years for the past decade.  … Continue Reading
