Dependency and the Threat to the GOP:
Why We Need a Great Leader

National Review Online, by Mario Loyola

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/27/2013 5:17:34 AM

One of the issues that the NRI summit has tackled is whether the Republican party is actuarially doomed by the disproportionate growth of ethnic groups that tend to vote Democrat. For many, that question boils down to what conservatives can do to appeal more to Hispanics. I agree that the GOP needs to lose its reputation for intolerance — and fast. But the real demographic challenge to conservatism is deeper and more difficult, and it has nothing to do with ethnicity. In a properly functioning two-party system, power oscillates between the parties,

Comments:
Fortunately, we have a strong farm system, with lots of fresh and impressive possibilities. 2014 will be a good opportunity for laying the foundations.

The reputation for intolerance comes from unchallenged democrat / media spin.

Dear Mario,

Up yours. So tired of the code word "intolerance" nonsense. I am not infavor of gay marriage or amnesty. Does that make me intolerant?

I am intolerant of stupidity, arrogance and the political class. I guesss that make me a member of the tea party.

We have to stop falling for the bait. Rather than talk about appealing to specific ethnic groups, we should reject that idea and talk about appealing to human beings. We should be quoting MLK about content of character, rather than color of skin, and point out how insulting it is to assume that people of a certain group (ethnicity/sex/socio-economic) ALL think the same way. We need to make it clear we want everyone to prosper, and will do what we can to help them.

Sorry, but I just don´t see it happening. OP is correct, we do have a strong bench, but as soon as someone emerges as a leader, there will be those on our side who will ridicule. I agree with many who have said, Reagan would not unite conservatives today. How bout we get behind an ex-democrat, former pro-choice, signed amnesty legislation, Hollywood actor, etc. See what I mean?

Good points, #6.
I can´t emphasize this enough: 65 million and change voted for Obama; 63 million and change voted for either Romney or somebody else. How many of those two million Obama votes are fraudulent?
Obama does NOT have a mandate, as much as he and the MSM would like us to believe he does.
Going forward, the GOP needs to talk about character, opportunity, and how identity politics has polarized this country. In the Reagan era, having a great job in the private sector was considered to be really cool. Pres. Reagan lifted government off the backs of the people and the private sector thrived.
We need to go back to that thinking.

It doesn´t matter that Obama doesn´t have a mandate -- he´s POTUS again and that gives him power to override the 63 million who didn´t vote for him.

He cannot be stopped unless we get some Divine intervention, because he will find extra-Constitutional and extra-legal ways to bypass the Law. He will get done what he wants.

Our other hope is that the country´s economy craps out and the stage for revolution is set. Then it will be the People against the government and will the military fire on its own citizens?

In years past, the answer would be unequivocally no. Today, not so sure, given the makeup of the military.

Stop dressing so tacky for church
CNN, by John Blake    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 4:40:56 AM     Post Reply
If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:55:20 PM     Post Reply
President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

The tyranny of the organic mommy mafia

“Am I going to be an outcast?” A friend, who recently moved to an upscale neighborhood in Madison, Wis., called me last week to ask if she would be able to make mommy friends if she continued feeding her children — gasp! — non-organic food. She had just come back from the park where two mothers were discussing a recent vacation to a resort in Puerto Rico. One told the other that there, for the first time, her toddler was given Jif peanut butter. He loved it. Prior to that he had only had Whole Foods peanut butter, which (one might

White House asks American parents to
monitor their children for signs of terrorism
Daily Caller, by Eric Owens    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:50:04 PM     Post Reply
In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

In Elizabeth Warren’s new book, A Fighting Chance, Warren claims to be “hurt and angry” that people criticized her claim to be Native American, specifically Cherokee. Warren blamed the Scott Brown campaign, the local Republican Party, and “some blogger.” In fact, Warren has no one to blame but herself for her false claim to be Cherokee.

Reflecting on Kelo nine years later
Hot Air, by Jazz Shaw    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 4:03:21 PM     Post Reply
It’s been nine years since the Supreme Court, expressing their decision in the writings of John Paul Stevens, decided to fundamentally change the Takings Clause of the constitution in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. On this auspicious anniversary, a diarist at Redstate decides to take a fresh look at how wonderfully that exercise in freedom worked out for the citizens, and what they received in exchange for their liberties. The Kelo ruling was controversial and precedent-setting because, under eminent domain, the government may seize the property of a private citizen when it’s deemed necessary for public use

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags. The walkie-talkies worn on the hips of tournament personnel crackled to life: "Texas Wesleyan has entered the building." The opposing teams,?most of whom brought only a handful of players, some in a mishmash of college sweatshirts,?stopped to watch in awe and dread. "We are the New York Yankees of table tennis," said Texas Wesleyan University Coach Jasna Rather. "Everybody hates our guts."

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our
