It is no secret that for at least the past eight years, I have been exposing Charlie Crist as utterly unprincipled, opportunistic, and corrupt.
My belief that he was a menace even compelled me to privately vote against him in the 2006 General Election, which marked the first time I had ever voted for a Democrat in a major election, or perhaps ever.
For the first few years of his administration, I and a small group of principled activists in the Republican Party openly criticized Charlie Crist and his minions like Jim Greer and other bootlickers for running amok and personally profiting off their mutual mischief and were exiled from our party for doing so.
Our issue was not necessarily Crist’s public policy pursuits–although the disagreements were numerous–or his incessant pandering, or even his countless flip-flops. Our main objection to Crist was what he was doing with the instrumentalities under his direct control. That is, the irresponsibility with which he conducted himself as head of Florida state government and titular head of the Republican Party. Continue reading →
Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory recently surprised many of his colleagues and political observers when he left the Democrat party, becoming the first black Republican in the Louisiana State Legislature since Reconstruction.
He very eloquently explained his party switch in a YouTube video that has since gone viral. We at Reaganista salute him for what appears to be a principled decision and encourage you to check out his video.
Needless to say, this has not sat well with the Louisiana Democrat Party. Its executive director Stephen Handwerk called Senator Guillory’s decision to switch parties “a craven display of political opportunism,” and called on him to resign his senate seat. They are apparently upset that he he decided to bolt the party under whose banner he ran and made a career for himself.
A picture of me taken at a Romney rally in Apopka was featured in the October 16th edition of USAToday. The accompanying editorial titled, “Why Women Might Vote Republican” is valid. However, I felt Vanderkam’s point is a product of what I detail in my response.
Today’s women are not a voting block. A product of a successful women’s rights movement is having the luxury to vote on a variety of issues. While many women will undoubtedly support the Democrats in this and future elections, I expect many will also support the Republican nominee–and in record numbers. Why? Women are tired of laboring under feminist stereotypes perpetuated by a small faction of liberal demagogues whose archaic belief is that all women subscribe to a victim mentality that dictates contraception and abortion are paramount issues to female voters.
“Obama made sure to play up the Romney-Ryan stance on abortion. Democrats assume this is a losing issue for republicans among women.” Why would the Democratsthink that travesty of a situation is a “winning issue”? There is an antiquated feminist movement within the Democrat party that dictates this “issue” be the only issue.
The classic struggle between the younger generations and the baby boomers is stark. The “Women’s Movement” puts ladies in a position where if they work and don’t stay home with their families or don’t have families, they are wrong and equally wrong if they stay home and do not work. The pressure to conform to a split societal norm creates a wedge issue from which demagogues feed. President Obama exploiting this wedge reeks of desperation, not successful leadership.
“No Labels” spokesman and backstabber Charlie Crist appeared on MSNBC this morning to talk about the elections and other drivel.
As part of his ongoing mission to suck up to Democrats, he blasted the GOP-dominated legislature for passing an election law that “makes it harder for my mother to vote” because she has to sign her name (which has always been a requirement to vote in Florida).
But his most entertaining bit this morning was his endorsement of the most vitriolic, divisive, mean-spirited congressman to ever disgrace the halls of the US Capitol. Continue reading →
A political scandal of epic proportions with national implications is unfolding in Massachusetts.
According to Politico and several other media outlets, supporters and staffers of incumbent U.S. Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) were caught on video engaging in a full-on racist chant against Native-Americans.
In what can (apparently) only be characterized as a grotesquely ignorant display, these amoral Scott Brown supporters were audaciously and hatefully performing the (apparently) universally-condemned “Tomahawk Chop” to mock Brown’s opponent Elizabeth Warren, who has been criticized for falsely claiming she has Native-American ancestry.
