Ted Cruz at CPAC and Huge Straw Poll Win!
Check out Ted this past weekend at CPAC as he speaks about the incredible grassroots momentum his campaign has enjoyed and how it will carry him to victory:
What Obama Has Brought to You!
By Howard Kaloogian
Obama is on pace to add $6.2 Trillion to the national debt in his 4 year term. That is more debt than the nation accumulated from George Washington’s first day as President until the end of Bill Clinton’s last day, combined.
Obama Birth Control Mandate Takes Assault on Constitution, Religious Liberty to New Heights
By Ted Cruz, Tea Party Express-endorsed candidate for US Senate in Texas
President Obama’s contraception mandate on religious organizations captures several aspects of his far-left ideology: 1) his assault on the Constitution, particularly the First Amendment; 2) his disdain for religious liberty, and 3) his aggressive consolidation of federal power.

Reagan’s Message Today Would Be Optimistic
By Sal Russo
Since today is his birthday, it is a good time to remember that Ronald Reagan was an eternal optimist. He believed in America, and he believed in the American people. Despite the vicious attacks from the left and even from the Republican establishment, he always soldiered forward, determined to carry the message of freedom. It is a lesson for those of us today who are fighting the battle for the tea party movement. There are setbacks from time to time, but we are right on the issues, and the future will be ours if we can show the same dedication to the cause that we saw from Ronald Reagan.
Don’t Believe the Government Numbers
As usual, Washington is misleading the public about the economy. President Obama is hoping to use false numbers about employment to confuse voters about his destructive policies. The Bureau of Labor and Statistics is making the audacious claim that the national unemployment rate is only 8.3%. This bogus number is calculated by changing the labor participation rate; in other words, government economists don’t include people who gave up searching for jobs. This number also doesn’t include part time employees that desire to work full time.
What South Carolina Shows Us
By Howard Kaloogian
South Carolina’s GOP electorate is not monolithically conservative, which is why it’s been such a good predictor of the ultimate GOP nominee supporting both moderates such as Bush 41, Dole and McCain, and conservatives such as Reagan and Bush 43. Any pundit who analyzed Newt’s victory in South Carolina as a result of a uniform electorate either doesn’t know the state, or has an agenda to marginalize the conservative message. South Carolina has forever been divided between the coastal plains and the Appalachian foothills.
