Resident David C. Wilcox is clearly worried about President Obama but presents a tepid rationale for the existential threat to liberty that the Obama Administration evidently poses [“Terrified of another term for Obama,” Mailbag, April 5]. Yes, the deficit is a problem. Under President Bush, Republicans aggressively reduced taxes and dramatically increased government spending, thereby squandering a huge Clinton-era surplus and guaranteeing decades of red ink. But I am guessing that Wilcox was not as concerned with the financial impact of undeclared war on a country that posed no direct threat to the US (Iraq)

Letters to the Editor Democrats aren’t conservatives When I read the letter by Greta Pruitt (“Standing firm for Russ Warner,” Our Readers Write, June 5) I laughed so loud that my neighbors three houses away probably heard me. I can’t believe she describes the Democrats as “fiscal conservatives.” How naive can she be? Does Ms. Pruitt think socialized medicine is a program based on fiscal conservatism? Democrats ruled the House for 40 years and had a deficit in 36 of those years.

In responding to David Wilcox's letter [“Terrified of President Obama,” April 5], James Clark parrots familiar liberal talking points that are for the most part baloney [“A more direct threat to freedom,” April 12]. Clark starts with the claim that the Bush tax cuts wiped out the “huge Clinton era surplus and guaranteeing decades of red ink.” In fact, the last four Clinton budgets ending on Sept. 30, 2001 increased the national debt by $394.3 billion. The “huge” surpluses were a $450.4 billion decrease in Treasury debt held by the public, the result of the growth in intra-governmental held Treasury debt, mostly the Social Security fund, which grew by $844.7 billion.

Local Republicans meet to strategize Members of the Board of Directors of the La Cañada Flintridge Republican Club met in November for the second annual Strategic Planning Retreat at St. Andrew’s Abbey in Valyermo. The retreat was facilitated by Josh Dykstra from Oaktree Associates in La Cañada Flintridge. Board members spent the first part of the day looking back to the strategy session held in October 2007 when the board agreed on its basic value of espousing a conservative philosophy, which includes smaller government, respect for religious freedom and tolerance.

Seizing momentum of anti-tax Tea Parties where Americans vent their frustrations over government spending, Republicans from throughout the Southland descended on Jeffers? estate Saturday for an All American Rally. Dozens of fiscal conservatives gathered to oppose what they characterized as the Obama administration?s imprudent bailout of corporate America and the inclination of lawmakers to balance yawning budget gaps on the backs of taxpayers. ?Even Franklin Roosevelt never came close to deficit spending of the type that has been done already within a year after the pull of the trap door on this economy,?

No single silver-bullet issue defines Tuesday’s La Cañada Flintridge City Council election. When it comes to big questions, such as the proposed extension of the 710 Freeway, moderation in government spending and support for local public education, most candidates offer the same basic positions: freeway = bad, fiscal responsibility = good and let’s help the schools all we can. Instead, candidates have worked to position themselves in...

La Cañada Flintridge voters have been painting the town a little bluer. A burst of new Democratic Party registrations prior to the election of President Obama, ongoing declines in Republican Party registrations and an increasing number of decline-to-state voters are changing the topography of the city's political map. Republican registrations in La Cañada Flintridge have dropped 9.3% since October 2004, just prior to George W. Bush's re-election,...

Incumbency may have its advantages come election time, but not with this crowd. Members of the Pasadena Patriots, a local Tea Party organizing group, dominated the audience Monday at a 44th Assembly District candidates' debate in Pasadena, turning up the heat on state Assemblyman Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge). On the other hand, dark horse Republican challenger Alvaro Day — a recent UCLA graduate and co-founder of the Pasadena City College Republican Club who traces his political career back to a 2009 Tea Party rally — enjoyed a number of audience questions that allowed him to spell out a platform that includes across-the-board tax cuts, rollback of environmental regulations and smaller government.
