[American Conservative Party:] ‘Mitt Romney: More in Common with President Obama Than You Know’

Written by Lee Anderson
Posted at American Conservative Party (theamericanconservatives.org)

Mitt Romney has taken a lot of heat over his “Romney Care” effort to insure all citizens while he was governor of Massachusetts. And for good reasons. The Massachusetts plan was supposed to accomplish two things; achieve universal health insurance coverage and controlling costs.… Read more ...

American Conservative Party: Why Wisconsin is Ground Zero for Education Reform

Lee Anderson at American Conservative Party

Highlights from the 2007 study by Randall Eberts: Teachers Unions and Student Performance: Help or Hindrance reveal the following about the impact of collective bargaining on public education system:

1. Teachers unions can, and have, come out strongly against state referendum to allow charter schools and voucher systems, which they believe could divert students away from traditional public schools and thus reduce public school resources, their union ranks, and their bargaining and political power.… Read more ...

American Conservative Party: ‘Now What?-the ACP in 2011’

Forwarded to IPR by Don Lake:

Last night was a fantastic night for America.

Record turnouts all over the country…a decided swing from the Progressive Democrats in the direction of the (mostly) Progressive Republicans.

There were a few that made it in, though, that might not play ball…Rand Paul from Kentucky, just might not work so well with the Big Government ruling class, and Jim Demint has proven he is willing to buck the status quo.… Read more ...

American Conservative Party: ‘Irony in the Judicial System’

Alfred Sanders at American Conservative Party:

Most people don’t realize that if the FBI comes to your home without a warrant but as part of a criminal investigation and asks you what color underwear you have on, you better either refuse to answer or tell them the truth – regardless of whether the color of your underwear has anything to do with the case or not.… Read more ...

American Conservative Party: Angelo Codevilla and “America’s Ruling Class”

Butch Porter at heamericanconservatives.org:

Absolutely the best article of the last decade regarding the bipartisan ruling elite of the United States. It’s a long article (long enough to even warrant a booklet), and worth a full read from beginning to end. Angelo Codevilla, American Ruling Class and the Perils of Revolution in the Weekly Spectator.… Read more ...

American Conservative Party: ‘Why American Conservative Party is Relevant’

Ellis Washington at theamericanconservatives.org:

When the government fears the people there is liberty; when the people fear the government there is tyranny.

~ Thomas Jefferson

In May 2009, a little over a year ago I wrote a cathartic article expressing my profound disappointment in the Republican Party titled: “I Can No Longer Remain in the GOP.” (http://www.wnd.com/index.php/index.php?fa=PAGE.printable&pageId=98936) Although I had been a Republican for 21 years since my grad school days at Harvard (ironically during the same time Barack Obama was there) what became the straw that broke the camel’s back for me was when I heard McCain aggressively state that the man he was running against (Barack Obama) would make an outstanding president and that conservatives out there who thought otherwise was just plain wrong.

American Conservative Party: ‘To Mirandize or not to Mirandize? That is the question’

Posted at http://theamericanconservatives.org:

One extreme is calling for limiting Miranda rights for terrorist suspects. The other claims Miranda rights should apply to anyone who runs afoul of our laws; whether in this country or on a foreign battlefield. Oddly enough, in yet another impressive display of White House Amateur Hour, the Obama administration has occupied both sides of the debate.… Read more ...

American Conservative Party: ‘Virginia Attorney General doing what he promised’

Posted at theamericanconservatives.org:

Written by Butch Porter

In case anyone wasn’t clear exactly why the Virginia Conservative Party only endorsed ONE candidate in the Statewide elections in November of 2009, this should help clear it up:

“Although ideologically in line with McDonnell, who was also elected in November and supports Cuccinelli’s lawsuit to stop the health-care law, Cuccinelli and his confrontational style could complicate the governor’s efforts to rebrand the GOP as inclusive and pragmatic.
