Has Romney Been Underestimated?
By Doug Johnson
Up until now it’s been assumed that Mitt Romney has an uphill fight in this election because President Obama will have $1 billion to spend on his campaign, plus have the news media backing him and slanting everything they can to his favor, which is easily worth at least a few hundred million dollars in advertising and probably even more. But now we learn that Mitt Romney, who outspent his competitors in the primaries by dramatic margins, may just be able to do the same against Barack Obama. Romney may have been underestimated.

Forget Vegas, We're Going to Maui
Earlier this year when news broke that the GSA was planning a million dollar getaway to Las Vegas there was a huge uproar. Not only was their “retreat” lavish, but they also took eight scouting trips just to make sure that Las Vegas was the right location, all at the taxpayers' expense.

The U.S. will also establish an enterprise fund that will give money to the private sector. [more...]
Why Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker Will Win Big on Tuesday
My prediction: Unions will lose big and GOP Governor Scott Walker will win big this Tuesday in Wisconsin. Here's why: Government employee unions are a real threat to national security, far worse than the unproven fraud called global warming. Government employee pensions threaten our children's future. They will destroy the American Dream and wipe away our quality of life. America is doomed to follow Europe off the cliff, if we don't dramatically reform public pensions... today. [more...]
