2010 Ending, Give To SarahPac - Update

     I hope that everyone had a good Christmas.  As we now head towards 2011, don't forget to contribute to SarahPac.  Fundraising will be one of the things Governor Palin will look at as she considers running for President.  If are planning to give money to SarahPac soon, please do it before December 31 so it counts in the end of year totals.

Update: SarahPac has sent out a new email.

My Favorite Christmas Story

     With all of the shopping and parties it is good it sometimes seems that the true meaning of Christmas gets lost.  Below is one of my favorite Christmas stories from the late Paul Harvey as a reminder of what Christmas is all about.

Merry Christmas to all.

Charles Krauthammer Still Missing It

     Charles Krauthammer is again criticizing Sarah Palin for her lack of policy knowledge.  This is factually untrue and has been refuted effectively.  Besides this, Krauthammer's focus on policy is entirely wrong.  We don't need a policy wonk in 2012.  What good are policy ideas if none of them can be implemented?  Krauthammer talks as if the 2012 republican nominee will simply put forth his/her ideas, Obama will do the same, and the people will decide.  In reality, Obama will make his proposals and then attempt to destroy his opposition according to the play book used by liberals.  Obama cannot be defeated by only promoting policies different from his.  Republicans in 2012 must argue in favor of conservative philosophy if they want to win and this can only be done by a true conservative, not a RINO.  This is what Ronald Reagan did.  Reagan is called the "Great Communicator" because he was able to explain conservatism in terms everyone could understand allowing him to get massive popular support.  Ronald Reagan did not just put forth policies that differed from the democrats, he explained exactly why liberal democrat ideas are wrong and do not work.  Sarah Palin also has the ability to do this.  This is one of the reasons she is liked so much by the tea party.  This is the reason she deserves at least a chance to run for President despite the attempt of the GOP Establishment to stop her.

Tax Cut Debate: Socialists Unmasked

     The Congress is now debating the tax cut deal worked out between Obama and the republicans.  This bill, in fact, only extends the current tax rates for two years.  Maintaining current rates is not a tax cut! Despite this fact the democrats are spewing their usual vitriol as they scream and rage against tax cuts for the rich.  They are socialists and believe that government should decide how much of our money we get to keep. Of course, the media goes along with this, ignoring again that this is a bill to prevent taxes from going up, not to cut taxes.  The liberals are incapable of understanding that the rich are the employers in this country.  When the top income tax rate is raised it hits not only individuals, but small businesses too.  This measure if passed will have little if any effect on the economy since Obama has promised to run on raising taxes in 2012.  And so the Obama recession will drag on.  To really get the economy going will require a conservative plan that actually does cut taxes.  See the videos below for an explanation of tax cuts and supply side economics as implemented by Ronald Reagan.
