No, Tea Party Nation, Danny Tarkanian is NOT Conservative

In an article in The Atlantic, The Tea Party Nation is quoted as follows:

“In Nevada, Sharron Angle (, insertion mine) is not the only conservative candidate running in this race. Danny Tarkanian is every bit a conservative and constitutional patriot. We can no longer stand aside and let misinformation about the Nevada race go uncontested. It's up to the voters in Nevada to decide whom they deem their best representative.”


Danny Tarkanian was endorsed by the Brady Campaign in 2006, who said Tarkanian “supports common sense gun laws like a ban on military style assault weapons“. (Of course we all know that “military style assault weapons” can mean hunting rifles to the Brady Campaign, but I digress…). See the Brady Campaign’s endorsement at:

No, Tea Party Nation, he is NOT “every bit a conservative and constitutional patriot” if he was really endorsed by the Brady Campaign. (He has told people that this endorsement was fabricated by political opponents). BUT, he did give $950 to Democrat Shelley Berkley in 1998. Further, he has no legislative experience. If he wants to PROVE he is conservative, he needs to run for a state-level office first. 

Sharron Angle has a proven conservative record, has served 4 terms as a Nevada Assemblywoman, and even sued the governor with personal funds to defend Nevada's constitutional 2/3 majority requirement to raise taxes.

About Me

I am a citizen journalist, wife to Bill, and Mommy to Charlotte and Cheyenne. I work at a chemical company writing Material Safety Data Sheets and own a small business on the side. I started this blog to "sound the alarm" on what is happening in this country with respect to the assault on our freedoms, and because I was called to do it: Ezekiel 33:1-5: "The word of the LORD came to me: 'Son of man, speak to your countrymen and say to them: 'When I bring the sword against a land, and the people of the land choose one of their men and make him their watchman, and he sees the sword coming against the land and blows the trumpet to warn the people, then if anyone hears the trumpet but does not take warning and the sword comes and takes his life, his blood will be on his own head. Since he heard the sound of the trumpet but did not take warning, his blood will be on his own head. If he had taken warning, he would have saved himself. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes the life of one of them, that man will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood.'"
