Thomas Cook and I Do a Battle Royale About Mitch Daniels

Thomas Cook and I debated the merits of a potential Mitch Daniels candidacy for President in 2012 on Fox 59’s “Face Off” segment. We were put in a boxing ring (no, I’m not kidding) in the studio and told to “duke it out”. We ended up arguing this topic for close to 23 minutes before […]

Donnelly Denies His Leaders on TV, But Happily Takes Their Money

Have you seen this? Works for us?  Really?  I hear something like that and I feel like playing a little game called “Follow the Money!”  When we follow the money on Joe Donnelly, what do you we find?  Well, since 2007, we find quite of bit cash come from the most liberal leadership in Washington. […]

If You Want to Be a State Legislator, Better Know the Basics About the Legislature

Meet Thomas Webber.  He’s the Democrat running against Ed Soliday up in Northwest Indiana.  Mr. Webber thinks there needs to be more lawyers in the general assembly.  Seriously, who can’t agree with that (insert sarcastic “HA!” here).  Mr. Webber is also of the belief that there are 250 members of the Indiana General Assembly.  What?!? […]

Our Founding Fathers Got it Right

*The following was my opening monologue to start my internet radio show “Gillespie” airing Tuesdays at 7pm on FTRradio.com.  In case you miss the show I will be posting these here every Wednesday following the Tuesday show.* “Government does nothing as well or as economically as the private sector of the economy.” That’s a quote […]

Skillman Making the Right Moves For 2012

Two recent articles in the Anderson Herald Tribune and the Ft. Wayne Journal Gazette have caught my eye.  Both of them cite Becky Skillman as, not only a logical successor to Mitch Daniels, but also poised to succeed him.  Now, the Lieutenant Governor hasn’t made an official announcement that she will be running for Indiana’s […]

"Those Voices Don't Speak for the Rest of Us"

This video is amazing. Reagan always had a way of addressing what was wrong with liberal ideology while at the same time being constructive and offering ways to bring us as a nation up. This is sorely lacking in the halls of congress and even in some state houses. Sanity needs to be restored in […]

Why I Love My Country

*The following was my opening monologue to start my internet radio show “Gillespie” airing Tuesdays at 7pm on FTRradio.com.  In case you miss the show I will be posting these here every Wednesday following the Tuesday show.* Party of No. It’s a clever line, isn’t it? So clever, in fact, that I’m actually a tad […]

Upward Movement in the Indiana YR's

This past week, I was elected by the board of the Indiana Federation of Young Republicans to 5th District Chairman.  Until that point I was serving as Vice Chair of the 5th District to former Chairman Kurt Luidhardt who had recently stepped down.  I had also previously served as Chairman of the Hancock County Young […]
