If a Republican doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one.
If a Democrat doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat.
If a Democrat is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a Democrat is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a Republican is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A Democrat wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a Republican doesn’t like a talk show host, he switches channels.
Democrat’s demand that those they don’t like be shut down.

If a Republican is a non-believer, he doesn’t go to church.
A Democrat non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

If a Republican decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
A Democrat demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If a Republican reads this, he’ll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.
A Democrat will delete it because he’s “offended”.

Rodriguez discussed the common belief that the Republican Party is anti-women and people of color, but Rodriguez said these misconceptions are false and are just used as headlines for the media.

On this day in 1956, Martin Luther King voted for Eisenhower/Nixon

On this day in 1956, Martin Luther King voted for the Republican presidential ticket, Dwight Eisenhower and Richard Nixon.

Martin Luther King told Nixon of his vote during a public meeting in Ghana, where they were attending a presidential inauguration.

While campaigning for re-election, Vice President Richard Nixon declared: “Most of us will live to see the day when American boys and girls will sit, side by side, at any school – public or private – with no respect paid to the color of skin. Segregation, discrimination and prejudice have no place in America.”

The following year, Vice President Nixon helped defeat the Democrat filibuster against the GOP’s 1957 Civil Rights Act.

Secretly Republican – the Orthodox Jewish Revolution and Its Opposition

How is it that the largest concentration of Orthodox Jews in the U.S is to be found in a belt along the East Coast stretching from Boston to Baltimore, and yet these states are so unreservedly under Democrat control?

As we are now past Labor Day and have embarked on what is traditionally the start of the season when more people actually begin to pay serious attention to politics, it is perhaps time to remark on a quiet revolution which has been in process over the last 30 years or so, among what has long been a key Democrat constituency. I am speaking of the Jewish vote.

Pop Goes the Liberal Media Bubble

Trump mediaTrump drives the mainstream media to abandon the pretense of objectivity

For years, reporters were content to obscure their ideological dogmas and partisan goals behind the pretense of objectivity and detachment. Though the Washington PostNew York Times, and CNN practiced combat journalism against conservatives and Republicans, they did so while aspiring to professional standards of facticity and fairness, and applying, every now and then, scrutiny to liberals and Democrats worthy of investigation.

Democrats Must Stop Taking the Black Working Class for Granted

A new report from Working America found that black Ohioans were suffering economically during the 2016 presidential election—but did not think a Democratic president would make a difference.

If black Democrats in Ohio fail to vote in larger numbers in the next midterm elections than they did in 2016, Democrats can kiss the state goodbye. That’s what Working America has concluded in a report released Tuesday that assessed the views of black voters in the Buckeye State and made recommendations for how Democrats turn out more of them at the polls. The organization, a political organizing wing of the AFL-CIO focused on the non-union working people, found, unsurprisingly, that black people have very little trust in the political process.

National Anthem Protests and the Disappearing Democratic Party

Liberal politicians way underestimate the degree to which #TakeaKnee pandering alienates majority of Americans

Torch? Check. Pitchfork? Check. Victim mentality? Double check. Congratulations! You’re all set for your Democratic Party adventure. Bart Simpson’s principal once said, “Ah, there’s no justice like mob justice.” Too bad the Democrats already chose a new slogan because this one would have fit them perfectly. Whatever a small, angry, leftist mob screams, they scribble it on a post-it note and jam it into their platform. And the more they become the party of fringe groups and phony fringe issues, the more their power will evaporate into the political ether.
