It’s Thursday, and just as one would expect, Halloween carried some frightful things for conservatives: National polls showing the race tightening. More polls showing Ohio basically tied. Little polling from the big national firms to hang our hats on . . . But there is strong reason to believe that many of these “tightened” polls […]

By Leslie Sacks The next four years may prove to be a trying time for those who truly love democracy, those who abhor ideologues, extremists and agenda driven radicals. For democracy at its very essence is a continuous uneasy balance between varying yet reasonable opinions, valid alternatives – a respectful conversation. It is not the […]

Obama Is Crumbling, Part 6: Hurricane

Posted: October 31, 2012 at 4:01 am   /   Elections, Politics

Yesterday’s hurricane hit the east coast hard, and our hearts go out to all those who have suffered, lost, and are dealing with the aftermath. It was truly a massive storm, and the cleanup will take some time. Because of Hurricane Sandy, we had less national polling to look at yesterday, and there will probably […]

Obama Is Crumbling, Part 5: Slipping Away

Posted: October 30, 2012 at 6:20 am   /   Elections, Politics

Commentators who are uncomfortable predicting the outcome of the election with 100% surety, but who nonetheless see an unmistakable trend, find ourselves compelled to add disclaimers such as, “It’s not over until it’s over” to pieces like these. And in a way, it is reasonable. Barack Obama could still win. The media has done an incredible […]

Posted: October 29, 2012 at 4:00 pm   /   Arizona, Elections, Politics

The only thing that every political party in Arizona can agree on seems to be this:  that open primaries, as implemented by Prop 121, are a disaster best avoided.  Every major and minor organized political party in the state seems to have found good reasons to oppose the Open Elections, Open Government initiative.

Here is a fine 7-minute video on Conservatism that is directed toward Democrats, Independents, and Republicans alike. Barack Obama’s blatant pursuit of Statism has given birth to a restored and renewed Conservative movement that is pushing back toward Constitutionally limited government, free markets, and fiscal responsibility.  This movement will not go away, no matter how […]

Obama Is Crumbling, Part 3: The signs are building

Posted: October 28, 2012 at 6:45 am   /   Elections, Politics

Everyone say it with me: preference cascade. It’s the moment when a population realizes that it’s okay to oppose the existing leader . . . and then it begins to do so in overwhelming numbers. We won’t see all the signs of it in America, because our media are averting their eyes from it. But […]

Romney is very likely win Ohio. Yes, the polls are showing it tied or giving Obama a slight lead. But as the increasingly indispensable Josh Jordan points out in Why Romney Doesn’t Need a Poll Lead in Ohio, the polls are definitely understating Romney’s strength there.
