2016 Election

If you want Mike Lee on the Supreme Court, you have to vote for Roy Blunt

I’ll make this short. I have been highly critical of Senator Roy Blunt for a long time. You can search my blog and find many things that bother me about the Blunts, but that’s not what this is about. This post is about whether the US Constitution survives. This post is about whether that government …

2016 Election, Missouri

The Strangest Governor Race Ever

You might be wondering why the Missouri Farm Bureau endorsed Democrat Chris Koster instead of Republican Eric Greitens. The Farm Bureau endorses Republicans about 99% of the time. If you’re thinking it had to do with policy or personality, you’re thinking wrong. (And, no, it wasn’t because of Koster’s hair, Mark Reardon.) This was all about …

Why I Expect Much More of Republicans on Obamacare

Sam Adams and friends risked their lives in the commission of a felony in their outrage over government overreach. That was the Boston Tea Party. Look at us now! People furious with me for going after Senator Roy Blunt. I went after him because he announced he will vote for cloture knowing full well that …

Pork For Me But Not For Thee

Some St. Louis area conservatives cheered Roy Blunt’s (R-MO) elevation to the Number 5 leadership position in the Senate Republican caucus. I didn’t. At least not politically.

Steve Tilley vs. Fiscal Responsibility

Four men risked their political lives to help solve the problem of our lifetimes, but they forgot to massage Steve Tilley’s monstrous ego. When John McCain (R-AZ) and Roy Blunt (R-MO) agree with Michele Bachmann and Rush Limbaugh, you can bet the issue is beyond debate. In this case, the issue is the massive U.S. …

Sometimes a Morris is Just a Morris

Dana Loesch invited Dick Morris onto her radio show today. Dana expected to discuss START with Mr. Morris.  But Dick has a mind of his own. Morris decided, about a minute and a half into a five-minute segment, that he wanted to talk about the 2012 US Senate race in Missouri instead. Specifically, he wanted …

The Courage of Roy Blunt

When  you vote for a candidate for high office, sometimes you do so with fingers crossed. You just don’t know how they’ll handle the new responsibilities.  Will they succumb to pressure and influence?  Or will they remain true? Luckily for us, Senator-elect Roy Blunt showed his courage in a recent Wall Street Journal article about …

2010 Election

On to November

The primaries are over. I honestly believe that in the St. Louis area, the rightward-most, viable candidate won each of the key votes. The people of Missouri are in a position to make historical shifts in our Washington representation. And those shifts are just the first step and restoring America’s First Principles.
