Blogger Confessions: Growing Up Under a Socialist Regime

I don’t often tell people this, and few know this about me. But I grew up under an oppressive socialist regime. And this is the first time I have ever written about the experience. And as I watch the Democrats and many of today’s youth talking about how socialism is better than capitalism, I get […]

The #NeverTrump “Conservatives” Never Fail to Astonish Me With their Intentional Ignorance

We see it almost every day in the media and on social platforms. People that absolutely hate Donald Trump and everything he does insist on putting out garbage that is designed to erode support for this president. Much of it is derived from CNN and MSNBC and it often has their “conservative” perspective woven into […]

Consider This Evidence of Creation!

May 24, 2020

NOT Proof But Evidence! More evidence of Creation – note not proof – can’t PROVE God. Faith is the EVIDENCE of things NOT SEEN (Hebrews 12:1) (BTW, think on this – what human would come up with that idea? Not very likely it seems to me – but there it is in the Bible written […]

May 23, 2020

True Drama! One of the reasons I love the LP convention (and probably would love the Greens too but I admit I have not invited to attend their online convention and I do have significant disagreement with the many of their policies; now I respect the heck out of those who join and are involved […]

May 18, 2020

This is the second in the Lincoln-Douglas Debates II series – the Sanders-Scott Debates. The first entries, on abortion policy, are here and here. Crossposted at Foggy Bottom Line.

Gun Rights: A Somewhat Forgotten but Essential Liberty

May 17, 2020

Your Vote in November for President Could Decide your Right to Keep and Bear Arms! It may not happen again. But I have to thank Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for demonstrating the essential importance of gun rights enshrined in basic law (from the CBC): Trudeau announces ban on 1,500 types of ‘assault-style’ firearms — […]

Do We Have A Purpose?

How Rep. Justin Amash (L-Mich) Could Win the Presidency

May 8, 2020

Certainly a Long Shot but Possible There are two ways Libertarian Representative Justin Amash could win the the Presidency. Note I did not say: Win the ELECTION (with a majority of the popular vote).

Will Kimberly Klacik Win Tuesday in MD-7?

April 27, 2020

She’s Not Supposed To Win; But This IS a Very Weird Election… I wrote this post several weeks on the Kimberly Klacik phenomenon. It’s almost too bad that this African-American conservative is in a district and state where it will be nearly impossible for her to win election. She is stunningly attractive, refreshingly pro-Trump, clear […]

Guest Post from Stan Scott, 2019 Democratic Candidate for Virginia State Senate: Abortion: What is to be Done?

April 18, 2020

I’ve written in the past about existential issues – policy questions that settle the political debate for many Americans. Some focus on Second Amendment rights, others on taxes or religion. Abortion – reproductive health care – is one of the big ones.   Most activists frame the abortion discussion in terms of rights. The pro-life side […]

ABORTION: What Is To Be Done?

April 17, 2020

Let’s Start With What It Is: Willful Taking of a Human Life I found out in my research that there is some dissent or at least some questioning the idea that science says life begins a conception.
