Ground Rules for 2012 Republican Presidential Candidates…


Always obey the RINO Repellent Proviso in “open” primary states like Michigan. Never, never, never publicly invite Democrats to crossover and vote for you in an “open” primary (also known in my home state as the “Never Do That Again Mr. Snyder Admonishment”). Continue reading

A New Third Party for 2012?


The individuals behind No Labels and America Elects share a strong disdain for fiscal–and especially social–conservatives who dominate the Tea Party/9.12 Movement and who, in their opinion, have “hijacked” the GOP and usurped their “rightful” positions of power within the party. Continue reading

Letter to Senator Randy Richardville


Congratulations on your win in the 17th district, and your selection as new Senate Majority Leader. I urge you to remember why you are in the majority and in leadership.

The Tea Party Will Destroy? I Think Not.


The Tea Party folks I’ve spoken with are looking for conservative, small government candidates to support, and are not in a mood to “punish” the republicans, despite the NRSC’s idiocy. The comments I’ve gotten back locally are that, “we did that in 2006 and 2008, and what did it get us? Obama, Pelosi, and Reid. Not again. Continue reading

Pray for our Country


The Designated Conservative is a Glenn Beck fan, but gets exhausted watching his TV show. The frenetic pace and his “wall of sound” method of presenting information can take its toll. However, his 3/24/2010 show was one of his best, … Continue reading
