Mitt’s win good for Mormons

Mitt’s Iowa win should put many supporters of other candidates on notice who have trashed him for being Mormon and thus unelectable. Though an Iowa win doesn’t guarantee a nomination (though Clinton County apparently does), candidates should go forward focused on what they are for as opposed to what they’re against.

Why check Muslim’s accounts but not conservatives?

It’s hypocritical that in America we can almost go to arms about funding for a mosque but stay silent about funding for elections. More people should be outraged that millions of dollars are being funded on the side to or in support of political candidates and no disclosure is needed. It’s obvious that a terrorist group wouldn’t support our best interests but it should also be obvious that large corporations in and outside of America as well don’t have the best interest of the average American at heart either. Of course these candidates aren’t responsible for 911, but we as Americans should lead by example: full disclosure for everyone receiving money for anything be it educational, religious, corporate, etc. If I along with the rest of us have to disclose our income annually or face penalties, why should these groups be free to get money from wherever they please in secrecy?

O’Donnell & Tea Party: becoming their own worst enemy

The recent comments of O’Donnell dabbling and witchcraft in addition to the campaign spending allegations pose a true challenge for the Tea Party: is the party going to stick by its professed values or stick to the candidate it simply likes? If they choose to stick by her no matter what, this will be an act of hypocrisy because the Party would condemn any other non Tea Party-endorsed politician who had these same issues. In continuing to endorse her 100%, the Party becomes as hypocritical as it claims other parties are. As it relates to O’Donnell, she can only play the victim for so long. She cannot duck the media. This will only make the problem worse, particularly in the media culture we live in now. She needs to confront these issues now before they spin out of control. If she continues to stay silent and if the Tea Party shows blind loyalty regardless of her past, they will both lose major credibility both as an organization and a as a politician.
