The debate over who will be the GOP presidential nominee is not the only battle Republicans will face at their national convention this summer. A divisive fight is developing on whether or not to include the issue of gay marriage on the official party platform in 2016. The issue of gay marriage has been a contentious one […]


Now that Iowa caucus-goers have spoken, lost in the discussion of Donald Trump’s underperformance, Ted Cruz’s ground game and Marco Rubio’s surge is an acknowledgement of one issue that separated the top Iowa finishers from (as Trump would say) the “losers.” That issue is Common Core. Cruz and Rubio have long been on record as […]


Wow, what an incredible night! Now that the votes have been tallied in Iowa, it’s time to take a look at tonight’s winners and losers. Winner: Ted Cruz This one ought to be obvious.

Wow. It’s already here. The Iowa Caucus is tomorrow.

Hundreds of thousands attended the March for Life in Washington this past Friday on 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade. The only GOP candidate that spoke at the event, Carly Fiorina, said in her speech that “this election is a fight for the character of our nation” and that she was “prepared to stand for life.” The Blaze reported that […]

by Shane Vander Hart

Starnes asked him if he felt betrayed by evangelical leaders and evangelical organizations as they seem to have gravitated toward U.S. Senator Ted […]

From Fortune magazine come two stories about the saga of Common Core and the presidential candidates’ approach to the national standards.

I wanted to piggy back on what Paul wrote last week about an article written by Fred Barnes in The Weekly Standard. Barnes said that governors making the best presidential candidates is conventional unwisdom. I agree. The crop of candidates who are governors or were previously governors have demonstrated time and time and time again […]

It’s greatly encouraging to see the GOP candidates focus more on one of the largest economic problems facing the United States: the Federal Reserve and monetary policy.

I don’t […]
