Time, Flexibility, Sell-Out …

March 26, 2012

At the anti-nuke summit in Seoul yesterday, President Obama revealed something of his intentions for his second term that both his opponents and his most ardent fans have been expecting – and, if you love your country, fearing.  Not about unilaterally disarming our nuclear weapons when rogue nations are building up their arsenals – not […]

High Speed Rail From Nowhere …

March 26, 2012

A company with close ties to Nevada Senator Harry Reid (the sepulchral Democratic Senate Majority Leader) is about to get a $4.9 billion dollar government loan guarantee to build a high-speed rail line from Las Vegas to … LA?  San Francisco?  Phoenix?   No, to a tiny, down-on-its-luck city in California’s high desert, nearly 100 miles […]

Santorum Losing It?

March 26, 2012

Introduction – this editorial takes a jaundiced-eye view of Rick Santorum’s recent campaign gaffes – yet lest you think I’m a Romney supporter, I invite you to read my earlier recent blog, “Wrestling with Romney.”  http://nevadaconservative.com/wrestling-with-romney/ – I may be having problems with Rick Santorum, but I’m not in the tank for Romney. Ned Barnett […]

Racism is Often a Matter of Perspective

March 26, 2012

The creator of this 50-state initiative, Jeff Blanco, wrote an insightful blog about racism, addressing the recent tragic shooting in Florida.   http://conservativefifty.com/jackson-sharpton-getting-even-with-obama   Jeff is Hispanic, and has a different “take” on racism, and on race.  In short, Jeff is basically pointing out that “racism” is often based on perceptions, not reality – though […]

Have a Heart, Dick …

March 25, 2012

When, in the course of human events, a conservative generates a high profile and refuses to kowtow to politically-correct Liberals in and out of the media, that person is mercilessly and repeatedly vilified.  There are too many examples to mention, but among them are my long-time friend and campaign associate Lee Atwater, former Vice Presidential […]

Fair Tax in Northwestern Nevada – Guest Blog

March 25, 2012

This is a guest blog written by John Vettel, an activist in NW Nevada, used with John’s permission. This is part of my effort to cover all of Nevada, not just Clark County (Las Vegas)  – which has 70% of the state and sometimes thinks it IS the state …  Also, this does not represent […]

The Sad Death of A Teen-Aged Boy

March 24, 2012

The death of Trayvon Martin is a sad tragedy, regardless of the facts. It hurts me from several perspectives, but perhaps most of all because I also lost a son at age 17 (and his mother, my wife, overwhelmed by a grief she couldn’t bear, later took her life). My heart goes out to his […]

Wrestling With Romney

March 22, 2012

As a Conservative, I’m wrestling with Mitt Romney – not literally, of course, but figuratively, intellectually, politically, emotionally, even spiritually. In talking with many fellow Conservatives, I find that I’m not alone in this. We have gone, as a party, 24 years since we last had a truly Conservative standard-bearer, and while I acknowledge that […]

Open Primaries and Caucuses – Invitation to Operation Chaos

March 22, 2012

I was pleased to note in this most recent Nevada Caucus that this quadrennial event is no longer an open caucus – which means that only previously-registered Republicans can vote. I think this is important, because primaries and caucuses are essentially party functions, designed to permit the party faithful to select their candidates for office […]

Santorum Goes Too Far

March 22, 2012

Politics can be a dirty, nasty game – attacks can be vicious as people struggle to get on top, or stay on top. And sometimes, candidates either lose touch with reality, or they embrace arguments that are patently untrue – in their opportunism and their desperation, they go too far – and when they do […]
