Can the Republican Party Avoid the Fate of the Whigs?

From comes a thought provoking article from Pat Caddell of FOX News:

If present trends continue, the Republicans will likely soon fall out of political viability; and the Grand Old Party will be the Grand Defunct Party. They are well on their way to becoming the 21st Century incarnation of the Whigs.

Let’s consider: At the national level, Republicans have lost four of the last six presidential elections; if one measures the popular…

THE RECORD on Newt Gingrich... Just more of the same, just what we all want, RIGHT?

With thanks to GPTPP Member Lynn Stevens...   And as bad as all of this is, it doesn't even mention the misappropriation of campaign funding...

FACE IT, people.  NEWT GINGRICH IS A LYING SACK OF CRAP.  Always has been.  Always will be.  This man is not now, nor has he ever been, nor will he ever be, Presidential caliber.  He belongs in the dustbin of history, to paraphrase Ronald Reagan.


1979 - Elected to Congress from Georgia's 6th…

Newt Gingrich? REALLY?

So now Newt Gingrich, of all people, has become the new darling of the Tea Party.  Newt, who cheated on his wife with his secretary.  Newt, the Bilderberger.  Newt, Mr. New World Order Bush's right hand man in the House.  Newt, the guy who lost his job as Speaker of the House and his position in Congress for shady dealings with his campaign financing.  How quickly we forget.

Here's an interesting little blast from the past concerning this moral defective masquerading as an…

9-9-9 is no good. It’s bad. How do I know? 7-7-7

This is an article which appeared on, Glenn Beck's media wing:

Now…Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 tax reform proposal sounds good. The plan would scrap all federal taxes and replace them with a 9 percent personal-income tax, a 9 percent corporate-income tax, and a 9 percent federal sales tax. In the process, Cain would eliminate the payroll tax, the estate tax, and tax credits and deductions for everything from the production of wooden toy arrows to your home. This is all actually…

As always, my family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision. When we serve, we devote ourselves to God, family and country. My decision maintains this order.

My decision is based upon a review of what…
