"Florida residents need to know the whole story if they are to make intelligent decisions when they choose elected officials and vote on public policy. Yet Florida newspapers don’t adequately reflect the level of conservative opinion in this state. If I can fill a niche in that regard by contributing to Florida Voices, it will be worth the effort."

Expect liberals to go into full-court press over the next few weeks with Mediscare.

This is a tried and true tactic – using scare stories and lies about entitlement programs, especially Medicare.

Florida is a key state, and condos in South Florida are full of elderly people who are afraid...

Who will win the presidential election? I have no clue.

Pundits predict election outcomes. I'm not a pundit.
But I think I know what will be the issue that decides the outcome.
It is the economy....

Political conventions are an anachronism. Pure show in the hope of swaying voters who haven't made up their minds.

In that vein, the Republican National Convention in Tampa – if it isn't rained out – will be worth watching.

It will give Mitt Romney a chance to present himself to the public...

College presidents across Florida might benefit by watching and learning from the media/union attack on the president of Florida State College at Jacksonville.

Bill Young, the longest-serving Republican in Congress, was being bashed by liberals last week for being “insensitive.”

To sensitive liberals, this is the worst of crimes. It outranks more minor transgressions such as trying to protect your borders or trying to eliminate voting fraud. And it’s on a par with amassing great sums of wealth by actually producing something, as opposed to being able to stuff a...

It is a staple in the newspaper business – especially left-wing newspapers – to exhort people to vote at every election.

Conservatives, however, are more interested in quality than quantity.

That is, they are more interested in having fair elections than in driving everyone to the polls – including...

It will be tough sledding, but the Florida Legislature needs to continue trying to rein in the unsustainable rise in public pensions and benefits.

Fortunately, the state has done a good job in recent years. Local governments, not so much.

Pew Center on the States said in a 2007 study: “Florida is a...

No matter how the Trayvon Martin case turns out in the courts, it has left a permanent stain on the media, which hardly needed any more blemishes.

George Zimmerman was tried, convicted and figuratively executed by the media before it was even determined whether a crime had occurred.

Pundits piled on...

Finally, there is reason to get excited about rail travel in Florida.

This comes after years of claims that taxpayers must pay for trains because the private sector -- meanies who only think about profits and not important things liberals want like windmills and bike trails -- would never run passenger trains.

Discussions about the efficacy and needs of the public schools in Florida tend to become rancorous.

Those who see them as the great bulwark of democracy believe that spending ever-increasing amounts of money will solve whatever problems they may have.

Others believe the public schools do too little...
