A Traditional Conservative's Strategy RE: Trump - No Contested Convention - NWHoustonTiger
Bottom-line - the Republican Party is still the best vehicle for advancing conservative principles in American life. The surest way to destroy the Republican Party would be to induce a "contested convention" where Trump goes into Cleveland with a majority of delegates and doesn't become the nominee...

Would Trump's Cabinet and Staff Limit his Policy Goals - NWHoustonTiger
Let's say Trump is elected President. Presumably, he gets there without much support from elected Republican officeholders (I don't think a 3rd party candidate will materialize), and I don't see him moderating his positions much after he has the nomination. Trump will need to staff a government to...

Trump and the Chinese Communists do agree on one thing - NWHoustonTiger
Authoritarianism is awesome [quote]Trump answered, “When the students poured into Tiananmen Square, the Chinese government almost blew it. Then they were vicious, they were horrible, [b]but they put it down with strength. That shows you the power of strength.[/b] Our country is right now perceive...

Donald J. Trump - Free Speech Champion - NWHoustonTiger
Hey Gumbo & CptBungle - I hear Trump is interviewing candidates to run his Speech Police brigade. Maybe you guys would be interested if you can't earn a spot on his Deportation Force. [link=(http://www.politico.com/blogs/on-media/2016/02/donald-trump-libel-laws-219866)]Trump: We're going to ope...

Rubio discussing Amnesty - I'm really speechless...(UPDATE) - NWHoustonTiger
Wow - I had never really looked into Rubio's past statements on amnesty, and I'm really not liking what I've found. I just heard an interview that Rubio did on Fox News back in 2012 where he said "For people that have been here for years, who are hard workers, have good jobs, supporting a family – ...

Trump Supporters - How would "Take the Oil" work, exactly? - NWHoustonTiger
Trump has repeatedly said that we should've seized Iraq's oil reserves as compensation for overthrowing Saddam. He's also said we should take ISIS's oil (presumably oil reserves in Western Iraq and Northern & Eastern Syria). My question is how, exactly, would that work? I seriously doubt that any...

How does Trump implement his agenda? - NWHoustonTiger
Question for the Trump supporters - lets say Trump gets the nomination and wins the general (I know - only a CUCK would think this is just a hypothetical and not 100% certainty). Let's also assume that the legislature remains in GOP hands, with Ryan and McConnell as House Speaker and Senate Majorit...

My Main Trump Concerns - Putin and Trade - NWHoustonTiger
I am 100% in agreement with the National Review guys in their [i]Against Trump[/i] series published today. I think he's bad for the Republican Party and even worse for traditional American Conservatism. That said, if given the unfortunate choice, I would vote for him over Hillary and any 3rd party...

David French: GOP Underestimated Trump b/c it Overestimated Base Conservatism - NWHoustonTiger
David French at NRO has some really excellent observations about the rise of Trump. French's point is that, while "middle America" (what could be broadly considered the GOP base) does align more with The Right then The Left, they aren't NeoCons on foreign policy, staunch evangelicals on social issue...

Next Mizzou Football Coach - NWHoustonTiger
Who do you think would be a good fit there? Al Sharpton? Cornell West? Rev Jeremiah Wright? Rachel Maddow? Or should they just promote that gay kid who is the Student Body President - he seems to run the campus anyways. ...

Ralph Peters - "start by leveling Raqqa" - NWHoustonTiger
How we defeat the jihadis is just as important as why we defeat them. Completely laying waste to Raqqa in a Dresden-like bombing campaign would send the perfect message to the radical islamists - mess with Western Civilization and we will raze your cities. You will not die a blessed martyr with 72...

TV for Home Office - NWHoustonTiger
Any good recommendations for a 40-45 inch TV for a home office/study? Also, if the TV won't be used that frequently, would it make more sense to just get an Apple TV and HD Antenna than incur the additional charge and hassle of adding another U-Verse receiver? ...

When has Trump ever taken a stand on a key issue when it mattered? - NWHoustonTiger
Did Trump ever speak out against driver's licenses for illegals in New York State? Did he ever try to lead a campaign to pressure Coumo into allowing fracking in Western NY (which would be a boon to the long-suffering working-class communities that he claims to care about)? How about protesting an...

2016 NFL Draft should have a solid QB Class - NWHoustonTiger
You never really know what the NFL thinks of these guys until draft time, but Jared Goff, Connor Cook, Cody Kessler and Christian Hackenberg all seem to be 1st round talents. None of them are Andrew Luck-caliber players, but they are better than the QB pool of the last 3 drafts. With teams like Chi...

How the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 Situation Plays Out - NWHoustonTiger
President Obama will continue to insist on a "full investigation" and push back on any criticism by stating "we can't act until we have all the facts." The investigation (whatever shape it takes) will get drawn out because access to the evidence (that hasn't already been destroyed) will be withheld...
