Cruz is Out; our Fight is Just Beginning

I am writing to you in great sadness for our country that Ted Cruz has dropped out of the presidential race.  I was originally a Rand Paul supporter, but gladly switched to Cruz when Rand dropped out of the race early on.  Ted Cruz is a great defender of our liberties and would have made an excellent president.  But it was not mean to be this year.

          Ironically, I had gotten off a conference call earlier tonight with…

Pennsylvania Rules can be changed in May to Bind Delegates in the Future

     The fact that the Pennsylvania Republican Party rules do NOT bind delegates elected in the congressional districts has caused some ill will within our party this election cycle, with calls for individual delegates to unilaterally pledge to “vote with their districts” on the first ballot.

GOP Delegate Chaos

   The fact that no presidential candidate will likely go to the Republican National Convention in July with the requisite 1,237 delegates to secure the nomination puts individual delegates in play for the final nomination.  This fact has Primary voters asking for the first time, "Who are these delegates?  How will they vote?  What is the party establishment going to 'push through'?"…

Let's Elect Hillary Now?

Bret Stephens wrote an interesting op-ed in today's Wall Street Journal, where he criticizes "extremist" Republicans who won't settle for anything less than the perfect candidate, so why not just Elect Hillary Now?

I think he is a little off the mark, and I wrote this response to Mr. Stephens today:

I read with interest your piece in today’s Journal.  I wanted to give you my perspective from the trenches of the Republican Party, where I play a part.

     The fact that the Pennsylvania Republican Party rules do NOT bind delegates elected in the congressional districts has caused some ill will within our party this election cycle, with calls for individual delegates to unilaterally pledge to “vote with their districts” on the first ballot.    There is an easy fix to this.  Just change our state Party rules.    The rules can be changed by a 2/3 state committee vote at the May meeting, if someone puts forward a rules change (see state party…See More

30 Rogue Republicans Who Won't Play Along?

   If you're an establishment Republican who votes the way the leadership wants you to so that you can get favors brought back to your district and you can climb through the GOP ranks, how do you defend your voting record if there are fellow Republicans who won't play the Washington Game?   Well, you have to discredit their behavior as unreasonable, obstructionist, or extremist.At yesterday's Blair County Chamber of Commerce breakfast meeting, where Congressman Bill Shuster was the guest…See More

Pennsylvanians Elect Judges: Let's Keep it That Way

Pennsylvanians elect their judges.  Let’s keep it that way.          Every 2 years we have the predicted hand-wringing from certain quarters regarding the fact that voters are electing judges whom they don’t know.          Voters elect people they don’t know all the time.  Why do you think judges would be any different?          The answer is not to take the power away from the people and place it into the hands of the political elite.  The answer is to restore the proper function of the local…See More
