Arming America’s Teachers

Any time a person dies needlessly, it’s tragic; it’s even more tragic when it’s a young person, whose whole life is ahead of them. School shootings are unfortunately nothing new, yet we have done little to prevent them in the wake of such tragedies such as Columbine and Virginia Tech, and now at a peaceful, innocent elementary school. America’s schools are no longer safe, and instead of passing laws that seek to control guns, we need to be pro-active and be ready to defeat tragedy before it shows up again.

America’s teachers and school staff need to bear arms. We can pass all of the gun control laws we want, but remember this, guns don’t kill people, people kill people. You do not need a gun to kill someone. If someone wants to cause pain and suffering, they will find a way. Instead of passing legislation that leaves a school vulnerable and open to attack by banning guns, we need to pass legislation that makes schools strong and safe. In case you haven’t noticed, criminals tend not to follow the law and even though the sign says no guns allowed, they bring them in anyway.

FORWARD: Where the GOP goes from Here

The Pundits are at it again. The Republicans are on the verge of civil war they say, the party is in shambles, it need to change to bring in more voting bloc. Its too far gone to ever gain traction on the national stage, and etc, etc, etc. This just isn’t so and any true conservative would agree. Abandoning our principles is the wrong thing to do. Republicans and Conservatives need to stand form on the platform they believe in. Running away would only make things worse.
Any sort of major division could lead to the arise of a true 3rd party and if this happens, the Democrats would be able to take advantage of the split vote from the right, and win a majority of the elections at the local, state, and federal level. The absolutely worse thing the Republican Party can do is give in. Are there problems? Yes. Are there solutions? YES! If the Republican Party can get organized, get local, improve communication, and demonstrate to minorities how the GOP platform helps them, the GOP can be revived.


The Democratic machine has earned that name well. They are the epitome of the well-oiled machine. The success they have at the grassroots level is overwhelming and its excruciatingly disappointing that the Republicans can’t even compete in the same league.

Whining, Crying, and Getting Over It

It was exactly one week ago tonight that President Obama secured his 2nd four year term in the White House. Anyone who hasn’t accepted that reality needs to now. You can be doubters no more. He won, and it would take a miracle to legally overturn the results of the election. The only feasible scenario is if an unprecedented number of the actual Electoral College switches their vote to Mitt Romney. The chances of this happening are immeasurably tiny.

Playing the Blame Game with the GOP

It was four years ago this week that I last put my feelings on paper for the world to see, and four years later, the similarities between these two posts are frightening similar. In 2008, Barrack Obama won a historic and devastating victory over the GOP. A few days ago, on what was thought to be a bright November evening for Republicans, America elected Barrack Obama as President for the 2nd time. While his victory margin was narrower, and the Democrats did not regain control of the House, the loss was equally, if not more devastating for those opposed to his re-election.
Like in the aftermath of the 2008 election, fear and finger pointing spread like wildfire through the conservative ranks. Everything from social issues, to immigration reform has been analyzed in the few days after the election. Once Republicans recovered from the initial shock, they turned their anger to man at the top of the ticket, the one, who only days ago was being praised and his name chanted, is being chastised as a weak, RINO, candidate. They are blaming Mitt Romney personally for this, and in the words of Vice-President Joe Biden, “that’s a bunch of malarkey.”
The Republicans didn’t lose because Mitt Romney was weak. They didn’t lose because he ran a poor campaign or made a major flub. No, Romney ran a mostly solid campaign. His history of achieving economic success made him the perfect challenger to unseating the President with the state of the economy in the shambles it is in. Mitt’s pick of Paul Ryan was genius, and served to energize the more conservative voters. One can argue he won all three debates, and one thing is for sure, he slaughtered the President during the first one, gaining unforeseen momentum. The Fact is,Mitt Romney ran a good campaign. He drove his message home, he offered America a choice and a plan, and he sold it just as well as anyone could.
