On the Right Side: Right-wing will regain advantage

It's hard to believe this column represents four years of writing for The Daily Star. That's more than 100 columns!

I think I'll try for one more year so that I can get through the 2010 elections and celebrate all the election victories that will put the conservatives back in power, hopefully in both houses.

All conservatives have to do is just let Harry, Nancy and Barack continue to show how inept and incompetent they are in leading (?) this great country. Hopefully, we will be able to kick them out of office while we can still call our country great.

The public is starting to wise up to the fact that they made a terrible mistake these last two elections, and I have every confidence in this same electorate to see through the lies that will be spun once again this coming campaign season.

Finally, the voters are seeing what happens when the liberal left is in charge. We conservatives are going to have to take caution, not allowing the Republicans a second chance at controlling Congress unless they do a much better job than they did the last time.

They drifted away from the conservative principles and made the federal government larger and more intrusive rather than smaller, and were irresponsible fiscally.

We really are at the point where we don't have to worry about the ideologically radical, left-leaning liberals. They are becoming a smaller minority as time passes. They are simply loud, arrogant, emotional and non-fact-oriented, and the public is beginning to realize this.

Just look at a Gallup Poll taken the week of Nov. 9. It is unbelievable how quickly people are running away from the left, especially the independents.

As the Gallup Poll interpreter said: "Over the course of the year, independents' preference for the Republican candidate in their districts has grown from a 1-point advantage in July to the current 22-point positive gap."

  • Schreibman tops Chris Gibson on women's issues

    As the time to vote draws near, we need to remember how money can run politics more than we can. Raising funds is a prominent (if not the dominant) task of getting elected. Raising issues is also crucial, but those efforts are subject to distortion and fear-mongering.

  • Republicans feelentitled to allthey can garner

    An entitlement is a legal benefit available from the government to individuals who are within a defined category of recipients, such as needing insurance for unemployment or health services.

  • Romney focuses on self; Obama emphasizes unity

    Mitt Romney criticizes President Obama for saying a person's success is rooted in his community, and is not all his alone. Romney belittles this with his belief in individual initiative. He is better at the put-down than the push-up.

  • Romney shows little regard for common man

    The Republicans in Congress have voted over and over, 33 times, redundantly and uselessly, to rescind what they call Obamacare.

  • Scouts' gay ban creates problem where none exists

    The Boy Scouts of America's "emphatic reaffirmation" of its vow to exclude any and all homosexuals from its hallowed ranks is ill-considered and pathetic, especially in view of its having reviewed the matter for two years.
