Bobby Jindal still deciding on 2016

Oct 27 2013, 10:44pm CDT | by IANS

Washington, Oct 28 (IANS) Louisiana's Indian American Governor Bobby Jindal, an emerging Republican party star, believes it's still way too early to announce whether or not he's running for president in 2016.

Washington, Oct 28 — Louisiana's Indian American Governor Bobby Jindal, an emerging Republican party star, believes it's still way too early to announce whether or not he's running for president in 2016.

"I don't know what I'm going to do in 2016," Jindal, the head of the Republican Governors Association and a former

member of the US House of Representatives, told Fox News Sunday. Jindal said he wants to focus on "winning the war of ideas" before making a definitive decision on his presidential ambitions. "As Republicans, we have a lot of races we have to win before then," he said.

"We've got to be more than the 'Party of No,'" said Jindal, who recently launched a new programme called "America Next" to help form a new conservative message for the party.

Jindal highlighted the association's initiative that revolves around "detailed policy solutions" to problems like failing education systems and high unemployment, which he hopes will erase the perception of the Republican Party as "the party of no."

"We need to show voters conservative principles work. And to see them working, you don't need to look any further than our state capitals," Jindal said.

Jindal said Republicans "don't need to change our principles" or "become a second liberal party," but he said the Republican party needs to focus on having a more positive message." Jindal said shortly after the 2012 elections that his party needed to stop being "the stupid party" - a reference to unhelpful things that certain Republican candidates said on the campaign trail.

They're Blowing It Again

Oct 6 2014 1:43pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

A little known fact is that back in the early days of the New Deal, many liberals opposed what the Roosevelt administration was doing to deal with the Depression. It was not that they embraced greater capitalism; rather, they feared the expansion of the federal government. Their frame of reference was the dismal twenties, when the Feds had pursued repressive policies, and liberals dreaded their continuation. To these stalwarts, the epitome of federal activism could be summ ...

Louisiana 'Legislative Audit' of Common Core: Standards Drive Curriculum in Classrooms

In an ironic twist, a report issued Monday by the nonpartisan Louisiana Legislative Auditor asserts that the Common Core standards are driving curriculum in the classroom, a statement that is in sharp contrast to the meme of supporters who have consistently argued that the Common Core is “just standards” and that curriculum can be decided at the local level. The audit, prepared by Daryl G. Purpera, CPA, ...

Planned Parenthood's Very Bad Year Keeps Getting Worse

Sep 9 2014 1:37pm CDT | Source: Big Government

Poor Planned Parenthood. America's largest abortion provider is having a very bad year and thanks to a Republican proposal to make birth control available over the counter, it could be getting even worse. Despite the President himself siding with no safeguards on abortion to a degree that would surely have pleased Kermit Gosnell, many states have implemented laws making it tougher for abortionists to ply thei ...

For years now, he reminded his listeners, the Department of Homeland Security has “been militarizing police forces, getting ready for an insurrection within America. Civil disobedience occurred in Missouri this week, but it was black civil disobedience, so there was no DHS presence. “It’s very important to understand this ...
