Recently on Sean Hannity‘s TV show, I heard Ann Coulter say that “There are a lot of bad Republicans, but there are no good Democrats.” I definitely agree when it comes to elected officials or candidates.
Even though a lot of municipal and county elections are “non-partisan” and candidates’ party affiliation is not included on the ballot, we should find out which of them are Democrats and which are Republicans. Some people run for office at the local level to use that office as a springboard to statewide or national offices–we have way to many Democrats in Congress and the White House already–or as an opportunity to grow local government.
In Jefferson County, Colorado, voters can learn what candidates’ party affiliation is at JeffcoRepublicans.com by the voter’s street address or by the races and ballot initiatives. From checking candidates for Wheat Ridge mayor and city council, I learned to my dismay that the current mayor is a Democrat. As I recall, the first time I met him, soon after he was first elected, it was at a Republican breakfast meeting.
Information on school board candidates and Amendment 66 is available on the home page of the site.

Even if you’re familiar with the history and dangers of unions, particularly government employee unions, you should still read Chapter 8 of Shadowbosses: Government Unions Control America and Rob Taxpayers Blind (New York: Center Street, 2012) by Mallory Factor and his wife Elizabeth. I had no idea that some states were forcing self-employed and unemployed people who receive money from government programs to join unions and pay dues.
All conservatives need to take up the fight against the public-sector unions like SEIU. We can begin by taking back the White House and the Senate.

Over the last week, I’ve started checking some websites daily for information on the 2012 presidential campaign. Those sites have asterisks. I’ve added some others to the list that I intend to read more often than I have been.
