With Rich Santorum and Newt Gingrich dropping out of the GOP primary it clears the way for Mitt Romney to become the GOP nominee. Mitt Romney was not my first choice as the GOP nominee but that doesn’t mean I won’t support him. I do have questions about how conservative he is because of his decisions as Governor of Massachusetts. He is the de facto Godfather of Obamacare by creating Romney care. I do not feel that these issues make me so uneasy that I could not support Romney for President against Obama. Let’s not forget that many including myself saw Romney as the conservative alternative to John McCain in 2008. While my preference would have been another candidate; now is the time as a party to come together and turn our attention to beating Barrack Obama in November.
Where does Romney’s strengths lay going forward against the President? In this economy, Mitt needs to focus on his business background. He needs to beat this point to death and challenge the President on this every chance he gets. The first time that Barrack Obama has ran anything that closely resembles a business is when he became President. Mitt should pounce on this and remind everyone how he made the Salt Lake City Olympics successful. He should reinforce how many jobs he created and much tax dollars he generated without raising taxes and how much his business contributed the benefit of the communities they were in (i.e. charities…etc.).
National Security is another key area where Governor Romney can beat President Obama. Obama has shown that he is going to try to exploit the fact that Bin Laden was killed during his time as Commander-in-Chief. Mitt can counter that by reminding everyone that it was President Bush’s policies that worked to make this happen. I would also recommend at strategy going forward that he will not use the military as political tool the way President Obama has done with Seal Team Six. This would hit home with many conservatives and show that unlike President Obama he will focus more on keep us safe rather than campaigning his during his entire presidency.
The final area I believe Mitt should concentrate on reminding voters on the huge difference between him and President Obama is for Supreme Court nominations. It is likely that during the next 4 years there could be 3-5 justices to leave the bench and the court would likely shift one way or the other during the next administration. It is important for Romney to remind voters and especially conservatives that are not enthused by his nomination that he would nominate those like Roberts, Alito, and Scalia rather than Obama who seeks ultra-liberals.
Let’s talk VP picks. I believe picking the correct running mate is more important now that it has ever been because of the 24-hr news cycle. The media is relentless covering politics and will dissect very thing possible about a VP choice, especially the GOP VP choice. It is important obviously that the VP choice is qualified and ready to become President if need be. Other qualifications that should be considered in this social media driven news cycle are:
- The ability to energize and mobilize voters, for Romney this is especially true of the conservative base.
- The ability to balance the ticket. Similar to what Gov. Palin did in 2008. She was able to motivate the conservatism to vote for McCain who has had the label of RINO associated with him for a number of years. If Palin had not been on the ticket McCain would have lost by a far wider margin than what he did.
While Senator Rob Portman has been rumored to be the VP nominee and he is someone that I feel is highly qualified for the position I do not feel he is the right choice this time. I feel that their are better candidates with similar qualities as Senator Portman but have the ability to connect and motivate conservatives. My recommendation would be either Congressman Paul Ryan, Governor Walker of Wisconsin, and Senator Marco Rubio. Each of these candidates have become stars inside the tea party and have shown the leadership needed to step in and become President if need be. While they will be attacked relentlessly by liberals they have already shown the ability to handle those attacks in a positive manner and come out on top.

So in the run up to election day, I have been debating what to write on my blog in the limited time that I have had lately with a new born a full time job and working on my master’s degree.
So I am going to write what I call the Three Kinds of Democrats. Type 1 are Democrats that think it’s cool and are against the “system” or ant-establishment. Type 2 are the ones that feel like this party is looks out for the poor and less fortunate and minorities above anything else. Type 3 Democrats are those that are claim they are Democrats but are really the true Socialist/Marxists/Communists of the party. The goal isn’t to help the masses but to control the masses. Let me discuss these types a little further.
These guys are the animal rights, global warming, hired protesters of the group. Mostly made up of college kids to mid-thirties, they take up these causes because they either really believe in some specific liberal ideological issue or they are hired by liberal groups for political events. This group may or may not continue working these causes after school. I look at this group at those that enjoy being a part of what ever political fad is being promoted at the time.
These are your true Democrats in the sense they have a fundamental belief in the Democratic Party and what they stand for. They are not extremist, and are likely uncomfortable with the current party leaders and where they have taken they have taken their party.
This kind of Democratic believes that women should have the right to an abortion but wouldn’t likely have one themselves. They believe that unions are still needed to protect the workers from large corporations, and they believe in a strong national defense, but that the Army should be used to deter attacks on American not to be used unless absolutely necessary. They believe that Democrats are care takers of the less fortunate and minorities. They see some commonalities with Republicans and likely center-right Clinton, Liebermann, McCain type beliefs To sum these Dems up they are the JFK Democrats.
These are the most dangerous of all to America. These are the Socialist/Marxists/Communists leaders that have stolen the Democratic Party. These are the Nancy Pelosi, Harry Ried, and Barrack Obama’s of the nation. What makes them so dangerous is the fact that they are the current leaders of the nation. Their goal has nothing to do with making it better for the middle class or minorities. It’s about controlling the masses. Control Type 1 by giving avenues for them to make their voice heard, and they pay just enough lip service to the “middle class” issues of Type 2 concerns to keep both groups happy. What we should be concerned most with though is Obama and his agenda.
Obamacare, TARP, the bailouts are about weakening our nation and forcing more people to rely on the government. Why else would he extend unemployment for 99 weeks? Why else would he believe the government should mandate healthcare. If you control access to healthcare for the people then you will effectively control the people. This Type 3 Democrat is about transforming this society to two class, the ruling class (which are themselves), and everyone else. Just like every other time Communism/Socialism has been tried, the middle class and poor get poorer while the ruling class gets richer and more powerful, and then controls and exploits the lives of everyone
Type 2 Dems; take back your party because the current leaders are destroying it and this nation. We will never agree about every issue but we don’t need this fundamental change that Obama has been trying to force on us since he has been elected.

So is Obama-care going to pass? At this point I truly don’t think it matters either way. The Democrats created the perfect storm for Republicans. The majority of Americans don’t like the bill, the moderate democrats don’t like the bill, and the extreme left doesn’t like the bill. On top of that, they couldn’t get one Republican to support the Senate version of the bill so all of the blood in the end will be on their hands. And to put the icing on the cake good ole Nancy Pelosi is will to resort to unconstitutional measures to pass what is likely going to be found in court as an unconstitutional bill. If it does somehow pass all of that mess the states are beginning to reassert their states rights and are looking to reject and ignore many parts of this new legislation.
So to all the liberals and President Obama let me say thank you! You have awakened the conservatives in America and are about to feel the power of Democracy and the American Spirit in the November 2010. The amount of seats the Democrats will lose the elections in the local, state, and federal level with likely in the realm of historic proportions and the reason why is because you made the same mistakes as the Republican’s did in 2000’s but on a much greater scale. You have listened too much to those in Washington and to your party leadership rather than listening to the American people. If you think I am wrong then you haven’t been paying attention or you are delusional to the reasons why Scott Brown is the Senator from Massachusetts. I could go on all day about Obama-care but according to the polls I would be preaching to the choir so that’s my take on this mess for now.
Getting to local politics for a moment I want to comment on the Republican Primary race for Hamilton County Commissioner. Chris Monzel and Leslie Ghiz are battling out for the nomination, and to be honest I am having a tough time deciding whom I will support. The both have strong qualities and leadership abilities and both would make great county leaders. But I want a candidate that can explain to me how we are going to bring jobs and residents back to the county. Quite frankly without a plan that does that it won’t matter who is elected county commissioner? So I would encourage both candidates to share with voters how they plan to do this. While I support the idea of tax cuts, we need a more concrete plan than that. The person with the best plan is the one we must support because the most pressing need in Hamilton County, more revenue without raising taxes.
Recently Councilman Bortz said he was proposing that anyone on council that is going to run for another office must resign within 10 days of making that announcement. While I understand the thought process on this I have to respectfully disagree. People should be afforded the opportunity to run for another public office if they so chose and it should be up to the voters to decide if this is an issue or not at the ballot box. This situation is a byproduct of term limits, which I am in favor of. You can’t blame a person for looking at the next opportunity when they are termed out. As an alternative like to see rules and procedures in place by council that would limit the amount of time away they can campaign while council is in session and restrict candidates that are running for office from missing council meetings of any sort for a campaign function.
That is all I have for now, grad school is kicking my butt so I haven’t had as much time as I would like for politics but I foresee you will hear more of me this summer or follow me on twitter. DarrylCordrey is the screen name…other than that enjoy the Easter Holiday

Twas the weekend before Christmas and all though the country,
All parents and children were hoping for a turn around in the economy
They stared at their paychecks with looks of fright,
How could they possibly afford presents to give out on Christmas night?
Our U.S Senators were snug in their taxpayer paid beds,
With visions, of Bailouts, Climate Change, and Healthcare reform dancing in there heads.
Harry Reid and Barrack Obama were talking on the phone with each other,
Plotting more ways to take away my hard earned dollars.
When out on the White House Lawn arose such a clatter,
The President walked out to see what was the matter.
Obama looked out on the lawn far and near,
And what he saws were Americans that felt anger and fear.
The moon light reflected the tears in their eyes.
As they chanted “Enough, Enough with your damn Lies!”
President Obama turn and said someone get me a phone,
He called Secret Service and said make these people go home.
The crowd left the White House frightened and dismayed,
But on they marched to the Capital full of rage.
They demanded that Congress listen to the people, not the puppet-master,
For it there is no doubt that this Health Care bill will be nothing but a disaster.
Vote Spector, Vote Lieberman, Vote Brown, Vote Nelson; vote yes on this bill,
President Obama shouted as he drove up to Capital Hill.
I am keeping score, so if you allow this to be undone,
The next time you run for office, I wish you luck on raising any funds.
Now that Christmas Eve is upon us the Senate has met
To pass a Healthcare Bill that no one could vet.
The Democrats waited with patience and glee
They finally had the votes pass this and flee
And now the President waits for the bills to merge
He hopes that this will result in an approval surge,
Little do any of these lawmakers realized what’s at hand
This is something that we will never let stand
Did they not listen this summer? The people asked
Or is they just don’t care enough to remember the past
The citizens of this country are tired and afraid,
The direction this government is taking us is clearly the wrong way.
Even with these actions all is not lost, and much is to gain,
People are rising up rather than staying on this crazy train.
They are coming together from all walks of life,
Because they understand who is causing this strife.
Rallies and Tea Parties have started all across this great nation, the people are now awake
Because despite our governments best effort we understand what is a stake
No longer will we take this government abuse of power.
Stakes are too high, and now we must fight for our rights this very hour
The ACLU and liberals can try to take our liberties and safety away,
But unlike politicians, the American people will fight this battle in every way.
Keep the Terrorist out of our nation we yell and scream,
Guantanamo Bay Cuba is where they need to be.
The Senate met under the cloak of night,
Because they know they are trampling on all our rights.
The Democrats thumbed their nose at all us all,
But come Election Day 2010 we will see who will fall
So on Christmas day let our message be heard on every radio and TV station,
The people will take back our power from this Obama-nation,
We are coming together again as one people; and this is a wonderful sight,
Merry Christmas to all, and GOD Bless us all on this solemn night!

Never before in my life have I been so fearful of the direction that this country is going. President Obama is taking us down a road that few of us could have ever imagined and sadly that most Americans are paying little attention too. One by one President Obama is destroying every major industry in this country and turning them into a government run mess.
On top of that President Obama has been going around and apologizing to the world for being America. He is putting this county and all Americans in grave danger from not governing from a position of strength. Does anyone think that it is a coincidence that North Korea started acting like high school bullies as soon has President Bush left office?
Say what you want about President Bush, he was respected by our allies, and feared by our enemies. Unfortunately this is no longer the case with President Obama and like during the ineptitude of the foreign policy debacle of the President Clinton Administration I fear Americans will pay for the mistakes of this President with their lives.
What ever happened to the Democratic Party of John F Kennedy and FDR? While we can debate their Domestic Agenda not even the farthest right Republican could question their ability or resolve to protect our nation. How can President Obama be talking about disarming our nuclear arsenal and our missile defense system when North Korea is threatening to fire missiles towards Hawaii?
It is going to be up to the grassroots efforts of the average American like Mike Wilson of the Cincinnati Tea Party to stop this madness. Americans can no longer afford to stand on the sidelines when it comes to voting. We must demand accountability from all of our leaders Republicans and Democrats. Politics as usual must stop!
It could be argued if we had a Congress with a backbone that President Obama actions are rising to the level that Congress should be considering removing him from office. Their is very little doubt he is a National Security risk and is failing to live up to his constitutional duties. Unfortunately his pals in Congress are no better, and the Republican track record after 2000 isn’t much better.
Real reform is needed. We need new leaders, bold leaders, leaders that are willing to do what it takes to either bring the old Conservative Republican Party back or create a new party that will fight to restore true American values. We need these leaders at all levels of goverment. Unless we as a nation are willing to get up off the couch, quit playing our videos games, and stop getting sucked into the black hole of Obamamaina that the media feeds us everyday we will become the very type of nation that our brave military fought to protect us from during WWI and WWII.

Cincinnati is no different than many cities throughout the country that are dealing with socio-economic issues or what I like to call class warfare. What will hopefully be different is how we as citizens and what our elected officials will do to engage this issue in a manner that this beneficial to all that live in Cincinnati. The citizens of Cincinnati need to not only elect officials that have the vision to move forward with improving our infrastructure and increase our tax base through new business, but we must elect officials that understand while doing this we cannot leave behind those in need like we have so many times in the past.
When it comes to economic development in Cincinnati I feel many times we do this at the expense of the poor in this city. We seem to take the attitude that if we can move the poor out and create “ a better neighborhood” then it will make Cincinnati as a whole better. I would argue that in fact that this has made our city worse. The reason why this is the case is because we are forcing the poor out of more of our neighborhoods in Cincinnati and they are moving into more concentrated areas, which is increasing crime in those areas like for example Price Hill. I am by no means saying that all people are criminals what I am saying that statistics show that poorer areas tend to have more crime.
All plans with regards to neighborhood redevelopment should be sensitive to the potential displacement of all residents in the area whether they are rich or poor. I am not saying that those projects should not move forward, what I am saying is lets find a way to improve our city by helping the residents that live within the the city while attracting new residents rather than trying to move out the poor and lower middle class in favor of those that are rich. We can be sensitive to those in need and that our less fortunate than us and still move Cincinnati forward with redevelopment.
This is why I favor of Smart-Growth Policy’s and Form-based Codes when it comes to neighborhood redevelopment. This isn’t some new government program that wastes millions of dollars a year on programs to win the vote of a particular block of voters. This is plan that encourages mixed use and mixed income growth. It promotes such ideas as having a livable walker friendly neighborhood that can support business growth for customers of all income levels. It also supports the idea of a viable public transportation system that is accessible and user friendly to all types of people for all types of uses.
I know it seems unusual for a Conservative to even want to bring up this issue especially when it comes running for Cincinnati City Council. Usually Conservatives want to scream we need more police and more jails to solve our crime problem. While I agree that we need more jail space, I do not believe that more police or jail space is the only answer. Raising taxes to solve this problem or adding more wasteful government spending is not the answer either. City Council needs to address the socio-economic issues while promoting growth instead of just promoting growth. We as a city cannot continually forgot about our poor for the sake of growth and expect to become a first class city. The cities that are successful are the ones that have found that balance. When I am elected to Cincinnati City Council I will promote growth in infrastructure and in making public transportation adequate for all that live in Cincinnati while also working to give those that need it better opportunities to improve themselves and to succeed in Cincinnati.

What a great event that Mike Wilson put together this past Sunday. Being down at Fountain Square was truly inspiring. To see so many people come together for such an important issue and to hear so many great speakers gives me hope that we can stop these terrible fiscal policies that are being force-fed to us.
There is no doubt that our government is taxing us into socialism. The T.A.R.P. and the stimulus bills have proven that. We need to find and elect strong fiscally conservative leaders at all levels of government. We need our leaders to give our country back to the people before it is completely taken from us.
Let me again say thank you to Mike Wilson for putting in the time and effort it takes in putting this event and the April 15th event together, and to all the speakers for the inspiring messages. It only takes an event like this to remind us how great of a nation we are. Lets keep this movement going and bring true change to America. A change back to a day where American leaders place the American people above the lobbyist that fund them and political parties they represent.

So this is how the most ethical and clean administration of all-time is going to look? How many Obama appointments will it take for the American people to wake up and realize that this President is no different than any other one. Having one nominee run into issues with taxes is excusable, but THREE!!! And one of them is running the IRS. If this would have been you or I that had did this, some how I think we would be in a little more trouble than what these three are facing. Ladies and Gentlemen this is Chicago Machine Politics at work, and the sooner we realize it, the fast we can get over our fantasy of the Great Obama saving us all.
Hopefully now that some of the shine has been tarnished off of the Obama administration Republicans in the Senate will follow their peers in the House and stand united against an administration that has yet to give us any real answers to our nations problems.

History will look back at 2008 as one of the most historic years in our nations history. It was a year that saw the United States go through many changes and face many challenges. At the international level this maybe the year where we look back as a nation and say this was the year that signaled the beginning of the end of the United States as the lone world super power.
Looking back I can see this being the case for several reasons. The first reason is the inability of the United States to effectively keep Iran in check. Iran with its nuclear ambitions has continued to move forward with little or no resistance from the international community. Russia has stepped up to become a relevant power again. While there economy is hurting again like everyone else’s they have taken advantage of the high oil prices over the last few years and have used that money to reinvest in their military. Russia has flexed their muscle in places like Georgia and has also sent war ships to the Western Hemisphere for the first time since the Cuban Missile Crisis to have military exercises with Venezuela. While it appears our government has stood by and watched this with little or no response.
Even our traditional spheres of influence such as Latin and South America seem to be waning. These countries have increasingly fallen into the hands of socialist leaders.
While there is no doubt that the war in Iraq has alienated many of our allies that traditionally take a passive view to resolving conflict and take a reactionary view to defense, I think there has been a fundamental shift in world view of the United States. There are many factors including, ineffective polices, a government that actively sought to undermine the President, and a national media that had its own agenda to shape America rather than just reporting the news.
We also have to recognize that we took an important step as a nation when it came to politics. For the first time ever we had both an African-American and a woman as a viable candidates for the office of the President of the United States, and further more we elected the first African- American as President of the United States. No matter what you political party affiliation is, one has to agree that this was truly an historic moment in our nations history.
With that said though we may look back at 2008 as the year we began as a nation the move toward socialism. We have bailed out our finance sector along with our auto industry and we have done this with little oversight. President Bush has even acknowledge that while he believes in a free market economy that he was willing to jump into a little socialism to save these companies. And we have elected what is widely acknowledge as the most liberal President in American history who has been quoted in saying such things as “spread the wealth”, and that he wants universal health care; which gives us a dangerous combanation of factors pulling us toward a European socialist type of government.
This year was one of the most challenging years of my generation because ofthe state of the economy, and the collapse of the sub-prime leading market that lead to millions of people losing their homes. The stock market lost over 25% of its value and all of us lost money in our 401k’s. Companies that we thought would never close collapsed under the weight of greed and poor management. We also saw gas shoot as high as $4 a gallon and come crashing back down to $1.50 a gallon in the course of a few short months. We all have been touched in a negative way by the events over the last year.
While 2008, feel will be looked at as an historic year; I feel that 2009 will go down as a turning point for our nation. Will we willingly and blindly as a nation let our media, our leaders, and government takes us down the road of socialism? Or this will this be the year we begin to revolt as people and begin to take back our nation and hold our governments responsible for their actions. I am hoping that with the negative reactions to the government bailouts, and the slow realization by many that Obama is just another politician that we may have hit rock bottom as a nation and that the people will take back our government.
There are many issues that need to be resolved in the coming year. We live in the most challenging times that have faced this nation in decades. We the people can no longer take a passive stance like most of our politicians when it comes to solving our nations problems. We must rise up and come together as people to find a balance between dealing with international affairs and fixing our problems at domestically. We must be willing to make sacrifices and in turn we must demand our government make the same sacrifices without raising our taxes. Tough choices must be made and we need to demand our leaders make the choices or leave office. If we don’t 2009 maybe known as the year Socialism began in the United States of America.

Congressman Louie Gohmert representing the First Congressional District of Texas is proposing something that should be a no-brainer to every politician and to every American no matter their political party. He proposing that the government should use what is left of the $700 billion dollar bailout package to give ALL Americans a tax holiday for January and February of 2009. He believes that this would stimulate the economy and give all Americans the help that they need, instead of focusing on bailing out just industries that have been poorly managed.
This is one of the best and most forward thinking Pro-American idea’s that has come out since this whole bailout mess began. Why not return American’s hard earned money back to the people that earned and let them do with it what they please. Even if people were to just use it to pay up on their bills this would help companies get back on solid financial ground. This mess was created by terrible business practices along with poor governing at the Federal Level and the American Taxpayer should not have to be the ones to bail them out. We need to get used to the idea that these legacy companies if they can’t fix themselves must go away and let the American Spirit and our talents take over in the private sector to rebuild our economy. We should not prop up failing companies for the short term gain of keeping jobs now with the long term reality that these companies will still likely fail and the jobs will be lost but instead the taxpayers will lose all of the money they have given to these companies in the process. American’s in the private sector will be the ones to help this economy grow and the ones to turn this mess around, not the clowns in Washington like Barney “There is nothing wrong with Fannie and Freddie” Frank. Speaking of which how in the hell isn’t that man in jail or impeached? He is one of the worst politician’s of all time and is responsible for a lot of what is going on in this country today!.
Unfortunately the liberal left, the liberal media, and people in general believe that it was FDR and the New Deal that got us out of the depression and now Obama is trying to recreate that train wreck when in all actuality it did nothing but add a socialistic component to our government and continued to make the problem worse. It wasn’t until WWII that our country got out of the Depression. This my friends isn’t even a Depression in comparing this time to the 1930′s when unemployment was 25%. We need to do things to put money and capital into private citizens and into private business to succeed, and not into failing companies that the government is trying to buy into and control.
The first step in this is to support Rep. Louie Gohmert’s plan to give all Americans a tax holiday with the rest of the bailout money. I implore anyone with a blog, email, and a phone, to text, write about, and contact everyone about this piece of legislation and ask all of your contacts to contact their Congressman, Senator , and the White House and demand that lawmakers support this bill. This is a bill that will truly have a positive effect on all working Americans, and will help our economy.
