McCain Rebuts Arguments Tying Him To Bush

AN ANY REPUBLICAN HERE voting for the McCain and Palin ticket tell me five things that a President John McCain would do differently than President George W. Bush? 1) 2003: Senator McCain called for a surge in troop levels in Iraq. Bush refused. Adopted in 2007, McCain's surge strategy won the war in 18 months. Had Bush listened to McCain instead of General Colin Powell and Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, the Iraq war would have been over in mid 2005. Obama to this day won't admit that the surge strategy has turned out to be superior to the cut-and-run strategy. 2)...

Tancredo Introduces Anti-Sharia Law

N THE WAKE OF BRITAIN'S recent capitulation to Sharia law, this is just the kind of heads up legislation that we in the United States need, and should embrace wholeheartedly. Let's be clear that Colorado Congressman Tancredo, despite his failed bid for the presidency, is exceptionally courageous, given the current political climate of cringing ignorance if not outright appeasement to accelerating Islamic demands—in introducing this bill, and The Two-Fisted Quorum hopes that it will, at very least, ignite a national debate on the dangers of unchecked Islamic immigration, aggression, and takeover aspirations.

Taking A Look At Poverty's Leadership

HAT DO THE TOP TEN cities with the highest poverty rate “all” have in common, and we're not talking about lots of broken glass, blind alleys, and racy graffiti? Answer: Democrat leadership.

Pale Lion Supporting PUMA Power

ELL, I TRIED TO STAKE MY CLAIM in common ground in this critically important election cycle by making contact with a rather impressive group of disenchanted Democratic voters, mostly women, calling themselves the PUMA movement (Party Unity MY Ass) with the following post to one of their most nurturing websites. Note also that my note was posted several hours BEFORE Governor Palin gave one of the most energizing political speeches I've heard in my lifetime, and that includes every single one of those delivered by the Anointed One, himself.

Projecting The Final Blow To Liberty

S WE PONDER the two rather "spotty" major candidates gearing down for the final leg in the 2008 race for the US presidency, let's reflect upon a few choice words written about the same time our own original thirteen states adopted their new constitution in 1787. No stranger to serious ideas, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years earlier: "A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist...
