The Virginia elections are mere weeks away, and few things have warmed my heart recently quite so much as this ringing-yet-unintentional endorsement of Ken Cuccinelli for attorney general. From a blog post at the James River Maven titled Ken Cuccinelli: You Better Believe Him: Ken Cuccinelli… intends to use the [attorney general's] office to turn…Details
John Dennis is running for the US House of Representatives in California’s 8th District. Yes, that’s Nancy Pelosi’s seat. Mr Dennis takes a strong stand in support of the limits on government that the Constitution stands for. In this spirit, he’s signed on to our 10-4 Pledge.
The pledge affirms, in part, that:

It’s also a promise to do many things, including:Details
In a display of arrogance and racial bigotry shocking even for this administration, President Obama’s Justice Department recently invalidated the will of an overwhelming majority of voters in Kinston, NC, who desired to make local elections non-partisan.

The department ruled that white voters in Kinston will vote for blacks only if they are Democrats and that therefore the city cannot get rid of party affiliations for local elections because that would violate black voters’ right to elect the candidates they want.
In other words, black voters are too stupid to figure out who represents their values, and white voters are too racist to vote for a black candidate (regardless of values) unless he or she is a Democrat.Details

After attending a meeting where he spoke in Richmond recently, I was very impressed by Virginia state senator, candidate for attorney general, and self-described “strict constructionist,” Ken Cuccinelli. Specifically, I was impressed by his willingness to invoke the Constitution early and often as his personal political compass. But don’t take my word for it. Check…Details

As a companion to Rob Natelson’s fantastic introduction to the (un)Constitutionality of Campaign finance laws, I thought Ron Paul’s 2002 article on the subject was an excellent read. Here’s an excerpt: The so-called reform legislation being proposed is clearly unconstitutional. The First amendment unquestionably grants individuals and businesses the free and unfettered right to advertise,…Details
