Jim DeMint 2nd most conservative in Senate

Posted: 26th February 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in South Carolina

According to National Journal, Republican Jim DeMint is the second most conservative member of the Senate. Maybe South Carolinians have someone else to look to as a true conservative now that Sanford has embarrassed us, himself and his family!

Obama says “we’re not campaigning anymore”

Posted: 26th February 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

During the health care summit yesterday, McCain told Obama that during the campaign he promised to bring “change in Washington” and hasn’t done so. Obama responded that “we’re not campaigning any more. The election is over.” Of course, McCain sheepishly responded that he’s “reminded of that every day.” To me it sounded like Obama was [...]

Obama scolds Rep. Cantor for bringing healthcare bill to discussion of healthcare bill

Posted: 25th February 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in Health Care

According to Breitbart, Obama scolded Rep. Cantor for bringing a copy of the 2400 page healthcare bill to the discussion of the healthcare bill.  I really can’t figure out a way to type that without making it ironic. In addition, Obama said having a copy of the huge bill in their presence “gets in the [...]

Surprisingly, Starbucks is not anti-gun

Posted: 25th February 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in 2nd Amendment

I saw this over at Ace of Spades HQ and was pretty surprised. Apparently the forever idiotic Brady Campaign has been trying to get Starbucks (and other restaurant chains, of course) to prohibit guns in their stores. Starbucks responded, however, that “Starbucks does not have a corporate policy regarding customers and weapons; we defer to [...]

The Two-Party System, Bipartisanship, and more

Posted: 22nd February 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

So in my last post about Scott Brown voting with Democrats, as I predicted, I wrote that “this ‘reach across the aisle’ is now leading to more and more calls for ‘bipartisanship,’ which is starting to become a term that I don’t even believe in or understand.” This is a topic that I really haven’t [...]

Scott Brown votes with Dems on “Jobs Bill”

Posted: 22nd February 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

Well, was I right or was I right? Back on January 20 I said that Brown’s win is a good thing but not a great thing.  And now, according to Reuters, Scott Brown is voting with Democrats on the new so-called “Jobs Bill.” Like I said before, Brown, a Republican, winning the Senate seat in [...]

Christianity, Politics, and Giving

Posted: 22nd February 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics, Religion

So far my blog has basically been about politics from my conservative point of view.  However, as I say in the About section of the site, I’m also a Christian.  A lot of the time, despite the oft-mentioned “separation between church and state,” religion does play a part in politics in America, and the two [...]

Healthcare AGAIN

Posted: 22nd February 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in Health Care

Obama apparently isn’t getting the message and is once again try to shove a healthcare bill through.  According to Politico, this time he also “will propose on Monday giving the federal government new power to block excessive rate increases by health insurance companies.” Surprise, surprise… anyone noticing a trend here? And despite the continuously bad [...]

Clinton/Carville come together to fight “Tea Party” movement

Posted: 17th February 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

According to Big Government, Bill Clinton and James Carville are working on a movement to oppose the “Tea Party” movement. The article states that When tea party, 9/12 and townhall protests and rallies first erupted on the national scene, they were derided by national politicos as astroturf or a small fringe movement. Lefty journalists at [...]

Obama – Stimulus Saved Us

Posted: 17th February 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

According to Reuters, Obama is stating that the ~$787 billion stimulus saved America and prevented our economy from going into a depression. As proof, he said “it had created or saved 2 million jobs”, and he attacked “Republican critics who doubt its effectiveness.” In response to that, I’d suggest reading my previous post at The [...]
