In a recent MuthsTruths.com blog post, I wrote that conservatives in Nevada should put a slate of conservative GOP candidates together to challenge Gov. Brian Sandoval (R&R Partners) and the establishment slate of moderate Republican candidates he’s assembling for the six constitutional offices next year. That elicited this overwrought email from a longtime Republican activist in Las Vegas:
In 2008 it was the GOP establishment in Nevada that generally treated the Ron Paul people like lepers. But the lepers got organized and fought back, gaining operational control of the party in the 2012 election cycle.
A new farm bill has passed in Sen. Harry Reid’s Senate and been killed in the conservative House.
The fight over “comprehensive” immigration reform in Congress isn’t so much between Democrats and Republicans as it is between conservatives and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
I don’t know about you, but I’m sick and tired of hearing the cliché that we’re “a nation of immigrants.”
Democrats love tax hikes because they mean more money for government to do more things. Conservatives loathe tax hikes because they mean more money for government to do more things.
As Nevada citizens are well aware, an awful lot of really bad liberal public policy ideas come out of our neighboring state to the west. Indeed, they don’t call California the “land of fruits and nuts” for nuthin’.
The “Big Lie” is a propaganda technique embraced by the communists in which the offending party tells a whopper so “colossal” that the public would refuse to believe anyone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.”
As someone who has been chronicling and documenting the GOP’s habit of never blowing an opportunity to blow an opportunity for more than 20 years , even I was stunned at how Assembly Republicans choked on a slam-dunk opportunity in the final week of the 2013 Nevada legislative session.
You can count the number of philosophical, as opposed to rhetorical, conservatives serving in this year’s Nevada Legislature on one hand. Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R-Las Vegas) is one of them.
The Assembly Judiciary Committee has voted to send to the floor Senate Bill 243, the Guilty-Until-Proven-Innocent bill. What this bill allows the government to do is take a sample of your DNA upon any arrest for an alleged felony offense.
Turns out there’s only one elected representative in the entire Nevada Legislature who got the Internet tax issue (SJR5) correct. Every other legislator voted to force out-of-state companies to suck “use” taxes (since you intend to “use” the product in your home state) out of your pocket for online purchases despite myriad reasons not to do so.
Perhaps not since Benedict Arnold sold out the American patriot movement have we seen such a betrayal as that of Republican state Sen. Mike Roberson to all that’s held dear by the Nevada conservative movement this legislative session.
Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval broke his word in the last legislative session and decided to extend some $600 million worth of “temporary” tax hikes passed in 2009 to balance his budget.
Last Sunday I spent $5 for a $2.50 newspaper that I didn’t even take with me because I already had a copy of the paper sitting in my driveway at home. Let me explain.
