Winning the presidency isn’t about who you nominate, but about who votes —and most importantly about where they live.[SNIP]The truth is that people can restore our nation to its founding principles and they can do so without leaving their country—all they need to do is leave their state! Put another way:To change the future, change your demographics.If the Republican Party, for instance, could encourage 50,000 reliable Republican voters to move to Ohio over the next four years, they could probably compete in that crucial state in 2016.Likewise Florida.Likewise Colorado.That is the short-term solution.It sounds crazy, but it just might work.
Comments: The author proposes an Electoral College solution that might give GOP a chance. Get Republican voters out of states where they are unwanted and unwelcome like California and boost their electoral count in states where they can make a difference. He calls it the Nonviolent Revolution of 2024.
That is what the lefties did to California way back in the late 60s and early 70s. They stole our state from us and the carpetbaggers from the East Coast have been in control ever since. But to be truthful, we´d do much better taking back big states like California. This state has the most electoral votes by a long shot. Most red state have small numbers like 4 or maybe 9 votes. CA has 55 votes!! Besides, we natives want our state back from the commies. So, if the GOP were smart, they´d help us take back California... especially now that Hollyweird is moving out faster than ever before.
I agree with #2: job 1 is getting fraud out of the voting system, as much as possible.
But! With California dhimms having a super majority, I will be leaving as soon as possible. I can either go to a state where I am the majority (Texas sounds good to me!) or to a state where I might actually make a difference.
I love my country enough to give it a shot. Are there 50,000 other like me???
Although I love Frank and enjoy his articles, this one is too far out there for me. Consider this: If 50,000 Republicans moved out of IL to OH, for example, and began voting, its possible we could turn around that one state for one or two cycles. But how do we compete with the endless flow of refugees from the inner cities & the other blue states that have wrecked their own homes, and move to red states hoping to wreck that too by voting for higher taxes and more democrats?
The GOP voters are out there, and I dare say, they do outnumber the mind-numbed robots on the left. Our #1 problem is the media narrative. Obama had 8 months to demonize Romney in OH, and there was no money or time for anyone to respond. By convention time, it was too late. We MUST regain the narrative. That IMHO, is our only chance of turning this country around.
Let´s redraw the map, with borders around the coastal leftwing cities, and then declare independence from them. If you live more than 20 miles from Lake Erie in Ohio, you probably already live in a conservative state. If you live more than 30 miles from the Pacific Coast, you already live in a conservative state. There´s no need to move, just redraw our borders and fence out the leftwing cities.
I have a better idea. Simply drive to those states, use a Hispanic surname and vote. Evidently, that´s what the other side does. Many areas get more voters than they have registered voters. Also the liberals are running the voting precincts and the counting the votes. We need to get control of that area or we can never take back our country.
The Free State Project was suppose to do that. I helped with their formation. They chose New Hampshire, I chose Texas. The Republicans need to get their Black, Gay, Hispanics etc. out into the field to articulate the conservative position that has been poisoned by the Democrats. I also think that there was a fair amount of voter fraud going on this last election.
Nearly a decade late Mr. Miele. Take a look at the swing states...look at who has moved in, Dems. have been diluting Rep. Majorities in just this manner for years. NC, VA, Fla, NV, AZ. While the reliably Blue cities have a huge surplus of dependent Democrats they offer NO jobs or hope for future jobs and the young from these places move to those states that DO have jobs (or at least the HOPE of jobs). Even intrastate migration can be seen in it´s effect on Congressional seats...look at the dem. votes around colleges and "Job Corp" Locations.
As Christmas nears, two local school districts find themselves being drawn unwillingly into the battle against religion in the public square — but both districts maintain that allowing students to participate in traditional Christmas concerts does not violate anyone’s rights. Choirs from Glacier, Flathead and Whitefish high schools will perform as planned today and Friday during the “Peace on Earth Community Christmas Celebration” despite receiving requests from the Freedom from Religion Foundation and American Civil Liberties Union of Montana to cancel.
One pleasure of scanning old Inter Lakes is discovering a familiar name among the ink-stained wretches whose career has ambled through Kalispell at one time or another. It certainly seems like we have had our share of reporters who have gone on to bigger and better things.[SNIP]But perhaps the most significant writer to have spent his apprenticeship at the Inter Lake is Tom Tiede, an author whom I first became familiar with when I was a young assistant wire editor at the Bismarck Tribune.
The JFK assassination may never be solved completely. Too much time has passed and too many witnesses are dead. But there is also far too much evidence of a conspiracy to ever conclude decisively that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in killing President Kennedy. Thanks to the 50th anniversary of the assassination, which took place in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, there has been a resurgence of interest that has led to a spate of books and television shows re-examining the evidence against Oswald, a 24-year-old former Marine who had defected to Russia in 1959 and then returned to the United
Saint Paul noted some 2,000 years ago that the root of all evil is the love of money. A corollary of that prescription might be that the root of all tyranny is the love of other people’s money. It would seem that the power to tax and spend is a lure to potential tyrants as much as putrefying carrion is to bare-toothed scavengers.[SNIP]No wonder the Tea Party, with its insistence on turning off the federal spigot, is being painted by progressives as a danger to the national well-being. The national well-being, after all, is a state of stuporific addiction to
It is a well-known fact that Ronald Reagan’s military buildup in the 1980s was largely intended to force the Soviet Union to spend money it didn’t have on weapons it didn’t need. The goal? Bankrupting the Soviet Union [SNIP]Thus, for the past 30 years, forces have been at work to undermine America in just the way that Reagan undermined the Soviet Union. Not in an arms race, because America has no stomach for war any longer — not after one failed venture after another — but by using a cunning strategy that cannot fail to bring us to our knees
Dear Brian: You and I have had our differences — plenty of them — but I was happy to see you toying with the idea of running for president last week. I know, I know — it’s just a coy flirtation, not an admission that you really want to put yourself through the rigors of an uphill 2016 campaign battle against Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and who knows who else for the Democratic nomination.But when you told Real Clear Politics 10 days ago that the American people were getting frustrated with presidential politics as usual, you were speaking for me and
I’ve written repeatedly about the mostly unspoken constitutional crisis that has enveloped our country for the past 100 years and have even gone so far as to draft a Restoration Amendment to attempt to restore a proper balance between the power of the federal government and the states and individual citizens. For the most part, I have concluded that serious change of the U.S. Constitution to reflect the original intent of the nations’ founders is virtually impossible. Nonetheless, I continue to argue that the only appropriate response to the progressives’ decades-long push to “transform” America is to fight back with a
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
