Daily Briefing for April 29th: Mors ultima linea rerum est

Crist and Graham Modern Day Brutus, or Aaron Burr? But Not Our 'Favorite Sons'  by Melody Kite

Charlie Crist has proven his own self interest and has decided to burn those who have supported him in years past, by donating both time and money to his elections as a Republican in the State of Florida.

He has also decided to betray the Republican Party who have invested countless thousands in promoting his career.

He will formally announce on Thursday his decision to run as an Independent. At least he did not wait to wait until after he was elected and make his betrayal more vile by pulling an Arlen Specter stunt switching parties, yet another weasel. His early support of the Second Stimulus quickly indicates how this happy spender would show his fiscal detritus.

Every recent perusal of polling data in every poll shows him well behind any of the current contenders running for election statistically for the Senate seat, and nearly 23 points behind Rubio. A new poll shows him still behind Rubio, who lately has his own foot and mouth problems on Immigration.

Graham is yet another of the RINOS that plagues all of us with his continual waffling. I am barely recovered from his threats that were nothing but puffery when Holder was testifying to his committee in regards to trying terrorist in New York.

It was not until Reid determined that he would place Immigration on the docket before the current nightmare Cap and Trade Bill that Graham withdrew his support for the Bill he co-sponsored with his buddies John Kerry and Joe Lieberman.

Now Reid has pulled Immigration back, and will bring Cap and Trade to the Senate Floor. Either Graham has caved, or the Senate will engage the same ploy as they did with Healthcare, forcing Graham to either vote NAY or do his evil deed and vote AYE.

The Cap and Trade bill is laden with a nation-killing agenda full of not only fees, licensing, and taxes but also outrageous punishing policies that would be the certain death knell for America and her citizens, in every area of freedom that you can imagine.

Did Graham have the ethical courage to step up to the plate and say I cannot support this because this set of policies and future law is based on a fraud and cooked And his buddies are still working on him to get him to come back to the table.

It is a shame that Graham is not running for reelection this season.

The treachery of these two only is surpassed by that of Brutus when he slayed Julius Caesar and Aaron Burr when he killed Alexander Hamilton father of the Federalist papers in a duel.

The machinations and finances behind the Cap and Trade bill make the Tea Pot Dome Scandal look like child's play.

Editor's note: Brutus stabbed Julius Caesar for his imperial dominion over the once free Roman Republic. Aaron Burr, though not for noble cause, shot one of the most infamous statists in American history, as the work of Thomas DiLorenzo sheds much light on. Alexander Hamilton was a mercantilist and openly supported installing a king to preside over the American "empire." So my personal attitude to these events is "sic semper tyrannis."

Daily Briefing for April 28th: Race and Contemporary American Politics

America's Post Racial President by Melody Kite
From American Thinker, ..."There is a danger in the Obama White House honestly appraising the Tea Party's criticisms: It may bring illumination to the consequences of their policies. And because, as poll after poll suggest, an enlightened citizenry would reject absolutely the continuation of said policies, such honesty would be politically suicidal.

Where the Tea Party openly provides its recommendations and cites its complaints, the Obama White House and its allies in the media take quite a separate approach. It is difficult to tell behind which goal they place the stronger thrust of their efforts: concealing their own agenda or wrongfully portraying the intentions of their critics."

On the campaign trail, Barack Obama sold a bill of goods (to those interested in his product): the possibility that this nation might finally be presented with the opportunity to rip through the ever-present and seemingly insurmountable partisan divide to achieve the Holy Grail of political discourse more commonly known as the civil debate of issues. However, now it is evident that he is actively pursuing an attitude of the very dissension which it was his stated goal to diminish.

Or according to the absolute whipping reflected in this in a series of polls from Rasmussen, which indicate the rising surge against his policies?

Presidential ratings, Strongly Disapprove at 52% 55%
Oppose Government Limits On How Much Salt Americans Consume·
73% Say It’s Likely Goldman Sachs Committed Fraud·
70% of Arizona Voters Favor New State Measure Cracking Down On Illegal Immigration·60% Believe Health Care Law Will Increase Deficit, 58% Favor Repeal·
58% Favor Welcoming Immigration Policy ·
North Dakota House: Berg (R) 49%, Pomeroy (D) 45%·
Nationally, 60% Favor Letting Local Police Stop and Verify Immigration Status· 80% Say Religious Faith is Important To Their Daily Lives·

Michigan GOP Primary for Governor: Hoekstra Still Ahead·
Michigan Governor: Republican 41%, Democrat 36%·
South Dakota Governor: Daugaard (R) 53%, Heidepriem (D) 33%·
Generic Congressional Ballot: Republicans 44%, Democrats 38%

He is soon to find out that his brand of change is not what millions of Americans cast their ballot for particularly that rare breed of mavericks identified as Independents.

Whether through his divisive policies or through his divisive dismissal of those who oppose his policies he has been the master of partisanship. Obama ran on a promise to end partisanship, and as a post racial candidate, and on pledges of transparency, and open ethical government.

Daily Briefing for April 26th: The 60% Solution

 The 60% Solution by Melody Kite

Poll after poll and study after study indicate that 60% or more of this nation view themselves, their thoughts and values as conservative. Whoever champions those values should never lose an election, unless the Democrats move back towards the center and find their blue dog voice.

From The American Thinker:

..."Since June 2002, the Battleground Poll has asked this same question in its demographics section, and in fifteen consecutive polls, the answer has always been the same. Americans overwhelmingly describe themselves as conservative. What does "overwhelming" mean in this context? The percentage of Americans who call themselves conservative in these polls has never been less than 58% (conservative strength was that at its lowest point through these years in December 2007, when "only" 58% of Americans described themselves as conservative.) There has been a remarkable consistency in the responses to this question. Over the course of these polls, 60.2% of Americans, on average, call themselves conservative.

The results of the April 2010 Battleground Poll show that nothing has changed. Fifty-nine percent of Americans in the latest Battleground Poll call themselves conservative; two percent of Americans call themselves moderate; thirty-four percent call themselves liberal; and five percent were either unsure or refused to answer. Remove the "Unsure/Refused," and sixty-two percent of Americans are conservative. Stories from the establishment media, like USA Today and the L.A. Times, conveniently miss the underlying story about the April 2010 Battleground Poll."

This begs the question of who is crafting the message, or lack thereof, for the Republican Party? Recent elections show that the Right has been unable to capture and use that majority to the Party's advantage!

Why is it that the Right has been unable to find their voice? What message is it that both Republican and Conservative candidates appear unable to articulate, or cannot address and are missing in their talking points that voters need to hear? Or, even worse what message are they not sending at all that needs to be communicated in a clear and consistent voice that would resonate with voters insuring our values as a ruling majority for decades?

The American voting public has been manipulated back and forth by both parties in an indiscernible cloudy message of altruistic falsehoods fostered by false progressive populism. The end game for us on the right is when our message is shaded only slightly differently than the message from the left, is we lose. We lose because the left's hypnotic mantra is not our true message. The voter, given the same progressive message from both sides, will choose the one that rings more true. Since the left's message seems more genuine they win more often than they should.

Both parties currently lie to the left of Center when it comes to values, while Americans live by conservative values, just right of the center, as the Battleground poll indicates an astounding 60%.

We as voters are ill served by ever more progressive choices from both parties who continually serve up candidates to choose as elected officials. It is a never ending game of bait and switch, toxic compromises and deal making. A seemingly smarmy landscape of back room schemes and machinations which insures American voters are continually faced with voting for the lesser of two evils. The rules are fast being set so that real sensible policies and the truth are the least desirable goal, and perpetuating power and incumbency the desired end game.

If, in the struggle to elect good leadership, the argument from the right remains clouded in some post modern progressivism, and personality, and who is cool or hot, we as a nation will remain trapped in a no win game, far from our founding principles with very disturbing outcomes.

As a Conservative, who, at this time to insure my vote is not wasted, votes currently with the Republican Party, I strongly believe it is critically important that our side fashions a message that will capture the hearts, minds, values, and aspirations of that 60%.

In 2008, Senator McCain, honorable hero that he is, lost sight of his inner values and appears to many voters to have sold out. He never set himself apart from his opponent in policy and was too willing to sacrifice principle for compromise. His willingness to compromise the conservative values of that 60% cost him the election. The polls statistically prove my point. Look directly at his polling numbers. When he made the decision to halt his campaign and be a Senator as a opposed to being a leader during the first bailout, Tarp, there was a twenty point swing that week end.

Our current circumstances are a direct result of placing personalities before principles. We are racing, at break neck speed, from our founding fundamentals. This can be seen in our everyday life, how we do business, how we govern ourselves and the examples we set for our children.

My suggestion to those Republicans and Conservatives running for office is they have talks not only with big donors, but with everyday citizens. Ask them what they would have you do to gain their vote.

Americans, in particular the 60% reflected in the Battleground polls, are a pretty candid bunch. 60% of Americans are yearning for a leader who will respond to their needs and aspirations leading through principal and example. Until the Republican Party finds its resonate voice we will remain out of power.

Unfortunately, this current power hungry administration leaves us facing the very proposition that we may have only one election cycle left to start cleaning up the mess. Unless we can make a difference in 2010, 2012 will not matter.

Daily Briefing for April 25th: The Administration Attacks Tea Party Because It Is a Threat

It Takes A Tea Party to Save A Nation by Melody Kite (ed. RJ)

The coming elections in 2010 are perhaps the most important in the history of this magnificent Republic.

The unending smears and misrepresentations of this movement are fantastic and blatant lies made to defend the current administration's calculated overreaches to change forever the fabric and founding ideals of this nation.

In a desperate move to complete their agenda, Democrats are in a rush to push their agenda prior to this election. Democrats fear our ability to stop them in their tracks.

It is left to us to continue to practice our First Amendment duties that of "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

It is likely that the organized assault on the Tea Party Movement was orchestrated by Axelrod and Emanuel, given that the list of wrongs and grievances bear a striking similarity not only in content, but also in the race- baiting seen in blogs, heard on the air, and made by one elected scoundrel after another.  This includes President Obama, who in his arrogance thinks we should thank him is an outrage on every level.

The unsubstantiated attacks and smears on every level to our movement more than likely have far more to do with these polls and their fears of our flipping the Congress in the coming fall elections.

Daily Briefing for April 23rd: Democrat Chickens Coming Home to Roost in Tarheel State?

Will North Carolina Democrats Be 'Feathered' by the Tarheel State This Election Season?  by Melody Kite (Ed. - RJ)

North Carolina, the Tarheel state ranked as the 23rd most Conservative state, managed to give Obama a narrow victory in 2008 and award him 15 electoral votes. For the Republicans to gain 8 seats in the fall Burr must win his re-election bid.

In recent history North Carolina has elected the Breck Boy Senator John Edwards, John Kerry's VP pick, failed Presidential contender, an admitted adulterer, and the purveyor of a nonsensical deceitful race baiting view of two America's as his campaign theme.

The Tarheels also voted to elect one of the left's constant targets of derision and hate, staunchly Conservative Senator, Jesse Helms, who retired from the Senate in 2002 and died in July of 2008, to five successive terms in the United States Senate.

You would be hard pressed to find two more politically polar opposites elected to the Senate by the same state.

Formerly a stronghold for Republicans, the state is demographically rated nearly 7% more Republican than the national average and recent elections appear to defy that statistic.

Incumbent Republican Senator Burr faces a tough challenge to hold his seat, however, as a result of Senator Burr’s polling statistics for the last three months, Real Clear Politics has recently upgraded this race as a leans Republican seat for the fall election.

Wouldn't it be delightful to see large numbers of naked roosting Democratic chickens?

Daily Briefing for April 22nd: Democrats - Say HI to Another Possible Loss

As Hawaii Goes So Goes the Nation? by Melody Kite (Edited - RJ)

Whatta Stunner!

Hawaii is one of the bluest states in the Union and it has nothing to do with the fact that it surrounded by the deep blue sea!

It looks as if the Red Tide Tsunami could even reach Dem-soaked Hawaii. Maybe, just maybe Obama is NOT THE 57TH STATE'S FAVORITE SON, and instead of notes of Blue Hawaii, the appropriate song is Red Sails in the Sunset!

How bad can it get for Democrats? Example #5,671 by Rick Moran

What would you say if I were to tell you that a was ahead in a special election House race in Hawaii?

Yes, you read that correctly. In Hawaii, Republicans are usually as rare as hens teeth. But the dissatisfaction with the Democrats runs so deep, that even in the bluest of blue states, the GOP is very competitive.

How competitive?

Republican Charles Djou has climbed 15 points in the polls since January and is now ahead in the deep blue state! Charles Djou is currently leading the field in the latest polling. Djou held a "money wave" today for his campaign. He was hoping to raise $100,000. It looks like he will make it. You still have time to donate to his campaign for .

UPDATE: Djou raised $105,888 in his money bomb exceeding his goal by $5,888!

The special election is May 22 so there is still a long way to go yet. And the winner of this race will have to run again in November. But make no mistake, a lot of Democrats will be sweating if Djou can pull this off.

Editor's Note: Here is what Conservapedia has to say about Charles Djou (pronounced Zhou, in accordance with his Chinese heritage):

Republican Charles Djou (b. August 9, 1970) is currently running for the U.S. House of Representatives in a special election to replace Democrat representative Neil Abercrombie, who has announced he will step down to run for Governor of Hawaii. Djou was a State Representative for Hawaii in 2000 and was elected Councilman in 2002 for the city of Honolulu, 4th Council District (Waikiki to Hawaii Kai). He is a fiscal conservative that has a strong legislative voting record. Charles Djou is a JAG Officer of the U.S. Army Reserves 9th Regional Readiness Command. Also, he holds a law degree and is the one time Vice Chairman of the Hawaii Republican Party. Politico has called him the next Scott Brown.

Djou was a representative in the Hawaii State Legislature from 2001-2002.  See Archives for more information.

Daily Briefing for April 21st: PA-12 Overview and The Mysterious Case of the Disappearing Conservatives?

 An Oddity, The Pennsylvania 12th Special Primary Election - by Melody Kite (Ed. - RJ)

One of the more unusual twists in a year of fairly stunning political circumstances can be found in the race for former Congressman John Murtha’s seat left vacant by his death earlier this year. Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional district, a seat which was held by Murtha for 36 years.

The winner of this currently open seat may find that he is a lame duck the same day he is elected to office if he does not survive his primary. Weirdly enough although he may win the special election, should he lose the primary even though he is the incumbent he may not run for the office in the fall. Even more bizarre the special election is on the same exact day as the states Primary, May 18th.

From RCP:

A McLaughlin poll (R) from Washington Post reports that it has "obtained" calls the race within the margin of error in the race to replace Jack Murtha between former Murtha aide Mark Critz and Republican businessman Tim Burns. [...]

And on this map it is listed as a toss up.  [Continued]

Editor's note: The Mysterious Case of the Disappearing Conservatives?

Another layer of complexity to the Pennsylvania 12 special election comes from the GOP establishment's treatment of military veteran Bill Russell. Although Russell ran a respectable campaign against the pathologically corrupt late Jack Murtha in 2008, garnering 42 percent of the vote, Russell been frozen out of consideration for funding or endorsement by the Republican committee in charge of nomination for the May 18th special election primary.  This despite his strong polling in mid-February, according to Zogby. Bill Russell will nonetheless be on the ballot against Tim Burns and Mark Critz.

I'm seeing a pattern here.  Conservative candidate threatens status quo.  GOP machine puts kabosh on funding or endorsement, despite grassroots support.  Witness the campaign of outsider Armando Gutierrez in Florida 8, who had raised hundreds of thousands of dollars and acquired numerous endorsements, but nonetheless, after meeting with Republican bigwigs like Rudy Giuliani, disappeared from the political map.  This after rumors that Gutierrez was ruffling feathers in very well-padded GOP nests.

Very suspicious indeed.  I am wagering that some truly conservative upstarts are being paid off or threatened by the powers that be. Nowhere does this smack more than in Alan Grayson's district, not only because of lunatic antics (whether genuine or not) that would hypothetically make him a sitting duck, but because of his apparent showboating against the Fed, which has gotten us essentially nowhere.  Grayson may very well be the perfect fake opposition who is really in the pocket of big banking.  If this is the case, it is really no wonder that Republican candidates continually drop out against Grayson whenever they show that they have a fighting chance.  From The Hill:

Recruiting a candidate to run against Grayson has been a tough slog for Republican leaders, with a casualty list that includes former state Sen. Daniel Webster, Orange County Mayor Rich Crotty, state Rep. Steve Precourt, state House Speaker Larry Cretul and several others.

The corruption runs deep indeed, and it is clear that tea party activists need to take on corruption in the Republican party as much as the political insanity in the Democrat party.  Keep an eye out for cases of disappearing conservatives and tea party activists when getting in striking distance of either Republican or Democrat incumbents.  Many could be taking long vacations from politics to "pursue their dreams" or waking up with withdrawal letters wrapping fish heads.

Daily Briefing for April 20th: Indiana Senate

The Indiana Senate race will soon be upon us, and the prospects are not looking good for Brad Ellsworth.  But the handsome Congressman should not be underestimated, as he has a sizable war chest and a Democrat attack machine on his side.

Democratic Congressman Ellsworth entered the race after Evan Bayh dropped out, among rumors that he may be seeking the presidential nomination in 2012.

Ellsworth is favored in the May 4th Indiana primary over relative unknown Tamyra R. D'Ippolito, who had raised no money at last count, compared to Ellsworth's cool million.

Republican former Senator Dan Coats leads Ellsworth, while a libertarian-likable John Hostettler also has a favorable lead of seventeen points versus the Democratic congressman.

According to the Hostettler campaign, Coats is a closet RINO. This charge is backed by Coats' liberal voting record, such as his vote against semi-automatic weapons (pretty much all modern civilian firearms) and for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.  Even the Indiana GOP has taken notice and has gone against the clueless NRSC to oppose the national party organ's backing of Coats.

Other candidates in the field include openly free market candidate Richard Behney, farmer and state legislator Marlin Stutzman, who is racking up a respectable campaign fund, and a pragmatic conservative Don Bates Jr., who is second only to Stutzman in funding.

Indiana leans Republican by an average of six points, so exposure in the general elections is probably not as big a fight as getting the right Republican in to face off against Ellsworth.  By my estimate, that candidate should be John Hostettler, though Stutzman, Bates Jr., and Behney are all palatable candidates.

It is still early, and Ellsworth should not be underestimated. Ellsworth has a large campaign chest and a state government that is not afraid of voter fraud. Hostettler may have a big lead on Ellsworth now, but he also appears to be short on funding at last count (contribute). That will need to change by November if a hypothetical Hostettler bid is to overtake both the NRSC-backed RINO Dan Coats and the Democrat attack machine.

Sleeping Around with RINOs by Melody Kite

You would think that the discussion of how to win would soon be clear.

When was the last time you actually decided to engage with, develop a long term relationship with a mealy mouthed milquetoast mixed message marginally interesting person who bored you to death?

Or you gave money and time to some one that lied repeatedly flirted incessantly with another and you still chose to continue the relationship, settling left-overs for dinner and continued to suffer with a completely unsatisfying date, engagement, business partner or marriage?

While most of us will eventually leave those partners, lovers and friendships, we continue to dance with RINOS, and line up to vote for sloppy seconds and huge disappointments from Republican elected officials who are not only take our support for granted but are all too often ethically challenged, and more often than not leave us to pay for their grandiose schemes and have a deaf ear to our complaints.

Year after year like someone addicted to some toxic relationship we return to the polling place and pull the lever for the likes of Arlen Specter, Olympia Snowe, Charlie Crist, Chelsey Graham, and the John McCain’s of the world.

I do not mean to imply that these are bad people. They just don't seem to understand who pays the freight and who sent them to one of the most select clubs in the world.

However, Congressional session after session these folks do things that really upset the base of the Republican Party. We let them know we are not happy. And they of course to reinsure their election make nice and take us to dinner or buy us some flowers or some fancy bauble and all is forgiven. [Continued]

Daily Briefing for April 17th

The polls seem to indicate that the Democrats are finished in the House regardless of what they do.  The sheer satisfaction of watching Nancy Pelosi pack up her gavel and take her place in the peanut gallery is almost worth the ordeal the Dems put the country through this year. Almost.

Though whatever the Democrats do on their agenda will inflame anti-out-of-control government sentiments further, it probably cannot get worse for them.  This is a very dangerous situation for the country given the absolute depths of corruption and strong-arms tactics to which the Democrats are willing to stoop.

This is why the energy in the conservative base needs to be channeled towards ferreting out RINOs as much or more than in the general elections.  (See the RINO safari task bar at top).  

The Republicans are virtually guaranteed the mid-term pick-up in seats, and this year looks to be a doozy.  Some have the Republicans at +44 in the House, though I see at least 62 seats in play for Republicans. The crucial question is: What kind of Republicans?

Candidates like Marco Rubio and Rand Paul are encouraging - and it appears that they will endure the shenanigans of RNC-endorsed opposition and state political corruption, respectively.  And if statists like Tommy Thompson are on the way out, as he is no longer in the Wisconsin Senate race, I will hardly shed a tear.  The problem is that Russ Feingold emerges the stronger for it.

It is absolutely crucial that we get true conservatives who will look to restore Constitutionally limited government come hell or high water.  The negative consequences are almost too grave to ponder at this point.  Almost.

California Senator Boxer Taking Hits in Polls
Reid Being Harried in Nevada (Poll Lowden +10)

Boozman Pouring it on Lincoln in Ark Senate Race (Poll Boozman+15)

Daily Briefing for April 16th

With the hundreds of tax day protests involving "thousands" of tea party activists in our wake, and the fog of the media blackout yet to be lifted, it is best to boldly forge ahead to smoother waters.

We have expressed our moral outrage admirably, and for that, all Americans must be applauded.  But Washington D.C. is not tone deaf, nor willfully blind; it is intent on doing what the political class wants, whether Americans disagree with it or not.

We are maturing as a movement, as the Democrats' politics of hubris begins to wear thin.  We are less reactionary and more focused, clearing aside the media memes, disinformation, and diversionary tactics like a thresher scything off the kernels of truth.

And the truth is that we are a movement growing in influence.  In the month since the Democrats force-fed a majority of Americans the unsavory healthcare bill, for every two tea party patriots, another one has joined the fray.

The media and the elites can attempt to forestall the crashing wave of voter retribution by silencing our voices, but they cannot quell the fervor in our hearts and minds, our love of freedom, and our passion for restoring America to her greatness.

Our vision is what unites us, and the haze of lies the government and its fawning advocates place before our eyes can only dim the light that leads us; it will never extinguish it, and we will move forward despite all obstacles in our way.

Liberty is the light that gives yield to the fruits of our lives' labor, and now our labor of love is to shine the light of liberty across this great land.  We are joined in a marriage that can never be separated.  We are at one with liberty and the America of our forefathers.

Tyranny cannot and will not prevail; deceit and deception are its natural soil.  And my friends, on this our native soil, man will take his last stand against the enemies of freedom.  In our encircled bastion, the lovers of liberty will hold fast, and will not fail. We Americans are not deceived.

We will exact our vengeance calmly, and resolutely.  We will work tirelessly as long as is necessary to deconstruct the lies on which our government has been erected.  We will undo the myth that government is able to live and do for us. We will restore government to its rightful place as protector and defender of our lives and do the rest ourselves.

Daily Briefing for April 15th

Tax Day tea party rallies are scheduled nationwide, with notable gatherings anticipated in Washington D.C., Minnesota, and Nashville, among numerous others.  If you have the opportunity to get out and show support, let the politicians around the nation know that we aren't going away!

For a list of Tea Party rallies scheduled for April 15th see:
Tea Party Patriots
Tea Party Revolution
Tea Party Express

Also see PJTV for exclusive live streaming coverage of tea party rallies nationwide.

In other news, the lackadaisical support for and ultimate loss of Edward Lynch in Florida's heavily Democratic District 19 special election April 13th underscores the point that we need targeted, concentrated opposition to defeat statists around the country, in primary, special, and general elections.

While progressives are celebrating the victory of yet another one of their criminal racket being elected to office, tea party activists need to reflect on the dismal turnout and lack of awareness of what was going on in Florida 19.

Without a serious concerted Get Out the Vote (GOTV) effort, including the participation of precinct chairs, races closer than Florida 19 can slip out of reach.

Considering that Democrat voter fraud will be in full swing, with the participation of George Soros' Secretary of State scam, we need to overwhelm the districts that are on the edge and put them out of reach by at least four to five percentage points.

We cannot afford to watch districts and states that are within two to three percentage points of conservative victory be compromised by fraud, as appears to be the case with Minnesota's farcical Franken victory and the absentee ballot shenanigans in NY's 23rd election, which saw Doug Hoffman's premature concession to Republican-endorsed Democrat Bill Owens.

So stay active!  Stay engaged!  Never give up the fight!

Welcome to Tea Party Elections!

This site is dedicated to the targeted removal of statists in both parties.

The tea party movement in general is not for Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, or any other political party, it for those who will support and defend liberty, and against those who will expand government, spend more money Americans do not have, infringe on civil liberties, and violate the Constitution of the United States.

The purpose of the nationwide analysis of all primaries and elections on Tea Party Elections is to help tea party activists lead a more informed and effective opposition to an increasingly confiscatory, reckless, oppressive, and potentially dangerous government.

The navigation bar at the top of the page will provide links to information on the primary candidates for Senate and the House of Representatives.

In addition to primary and general election information and results, one can find here links to campaign websites, overviews of the most vulnerable Democrats on the "Adopt-a-Democrat" link, Republicans-in-Name-Only (RINOs) on the "RINO Safari" link, as well as inspiring historical and contemporary essays, news articles on the tea party movement, profiles on conservatives in the Candidates for Freedom link, up-to-date news and information on the Tea Party Spotlight link, as well as networking, and resources on the shifting political terrain in the Strategy Room link.

There is also a list of primary dates on the right sidebar. Upcoming primaries will be highlighted in red.

Please spread the word and work hard to defeat the internal threats to the American way of life. We never want to have to explain to our friends, families, and children how we could stand by and watch the rise of a tyrannical government in what was once the freest nation and last best hope for humanity on earth.
