Pro-Life Group Calls On GOP to Support Life

Thursday, September 2, 2010 \PM\.\Thu\.

My old employer, the Susan B. Anthony List, has launched a new initiative encouraging the GOP to include Pro-Life legislation in it’s latest Contract for America.

SBA List President, Marjorie Dannenfelser, explains why this initiative is needed:

“The Republican Party must show what it is made of this time around.  They can do so by acting on their convictions and those of their party, and by making a commitment to passage of common-sense, life-saving legislation.  Missing from the GOP’s original Contract in 1994 was any emphasis on policies protecting the unborn.  Pro-life legislation was not made a priority in the following Congress.  With the support of a vibrant pro-life movement that understands the urgency of addressing the tragedy of nearly 4,000 abortions per day coupled with the vast majority of Americans who support a commonsense pro-life agenda, enacting that agenda would not require a heavy lift.”

Check out the SBA List’s petition for more information and to join their cause.


Christie to Teachers Union: You Punch Them, I Punch You

Saturday, June 5, 2010 \AM\.\Sat\.

There was a time when unions were needed.

Today not so much.

The New Jersey Educational Association (NJEA)  represents what is wrong with this country and this is entitlement.

Governor Chris Christie needs your help to eliminate the cancer that is the NJEA.

Please pray for him and the people of New Jersey as they engage the culture of entitlement.

Chris Christie: We Need to Stop the Explosive Growth of Government

Thursday, May 27, 2010 \AM\.\Thu\.

If we are going to get ourselves out of the morass of government debt in which we find ourselves, it will only be due to the efforts of men and women like Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey.

Yesterday he announced how he intends to lead New Jersey out of the fiscal wilderness:

As you all know, we have a fiscal crisis in New Jersey: a $10.9 billion deficit on a $29.3 billion budget.

The Politics of Hatred

Wednesday, January 20, 2010 \AM\.\Wed\.

Scott Brown’s victory in Massachusetts tonight prompted an acquaintance of mine to remind me of my prediction that the GOP was a doomed party. “So much for that prediction”, I was told.

Not so fast. My analysis, which I was toying with a year ago before and after Obama’s victory, was that demographic factors were threatening the long-term survival of the GOP. In spite of tonight’s spectacular victory for the GOP, I’m not quite ready to toss my analysis out the window just yet. The main reason is that I am not convinced that what I call “the politics of hate” can sustain either party.

What are the politics of hate? By that I do not mean that the platform of either party is based in a hateful ideology, though I’m sure many would find aspects of either that they would describe that way. What I mean is that I see what was once a tendency in politics becoming the obsessive, dominating factor – visceral hatred for the incumbent, regardless of the party he or she belongs to, and regardless of the party affiliation of the voters.
