The Revolution You Never Knew You Needed and Never Wanted

I hate Hillary Clinton. A cold, empty vestige of late 60s liberalism – risen to the heights of power and embraced by the ever puissant arms of a 1990s rendition of classical political corruption. As the dormant leader of a pitiful collaboration of corporatism and Alinsky-style totalitarianism, Secretary Clinton is a sour reminder of just […]

Five Issues I Look to See Addressed by Potential Republican Candidates

There are 5 policy issues which I believe ought to be priorities for grassroots Republicans. These are not libertarian suggestions that don’t translate to the social conservative or constitutionalist. These are 5 issues that I believe every American ought to regard as the most important issues facing our government and our society today. First, we […]

Illegal Immigration is a Simple Problem with a Simple Solution

The primary reason Republicans struggle with immigration, politically, is because they are willing to compromise on the most important principle involved in the debate. We can talk about the difficulties and expense of legal immigration, the impossibility of deporting 12 million human beings, the logistical problems of dealing with illegal immigrants once they’ve crossed our […]

The Grassroots of the Republic vs. Mitch McConnell

Being a libertarian is easy. You can criticize the Republicans and Democrats without any culpability. Being a grassroots Republican is hard. These people work tirelessly, not as paid political operatives, but as actively concerned citizens, fighting for the values and liberties they hold dear. However, they, as Republicans, are represented by the likes of Majority […]

FEAR

What is the difference between the men and women who founded our society and those of us living in its’ last vestiges today? Why are we so easily purchased by our government and why are we so much less protective of our individual sovereignty? Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote an essay entitled Self-Reliance and it was […]

What Are You Looking for in a Presidential Campaign?

What is a great campaign? Just what sort of campaign is required to invigorate the American People? I am not thinking in terms of what the voters would respond to, per se, because a great campaign doesn’t necessarily lead to a victory for the candidate that performs it, but rather to those who come after, […]

How Bill Janis Lost my Support in the Virginia Senate Race (VA-12)

I have known Bill Janis for several years and I always held him in the highest regard. Most VMI grads, I have found, have a moral compass that guides them without compromise throughout their life. And when you add that to the fact that Janis and I are both Navy Vets, we have a natural […]

And Your 2016 Presidential Nominee’s Are….

The history of presidential political theater and the superficiality of the American voter doesn’t inspire a great deal of confidence amongst libertarian and constitutional intellectuals for the upcoming 2016 elections. While the establishments struggle to inspire faith and positive feelings about their Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton campaigns, neither the media nor the public seem […]

Dreams of my Grandfather

My Grandfather, Wallace Tucker, remains one of the wisest men I’ve ever known. He was a Merchant Marine and Southern Baptist preacher, and I suppose I absorbed from him some desire to act and to preach. I have never seen a preacher less interested in how his congregation felt about his sermons. The hard truth […]

Baltimore Burns: What’s Wrong With Urban Culture?

The violence in Baltimore and Ferguson have led many to question what’s wrong with “urban culture”; and let’s face it, when we talk about “urban culture”, let’s at least have the courage to admit that we are talking about black culture. “Black Culture” is something that can be seen objectively and first hand, but it […]

Obama Blames the Thugs in Baltimore? Here’s Why.

When the po po kill a black man there are a few things that we can count on. First, the blacks in the town will tear up their own neighborhoods, loot and destroy everything in sight and take the opportunity to stock up on TV’s, Tampons and Turtle Food. (I know, right!) But when you […]

The Gloating About Brian Schoeneman’s Primary Loss on Saturday Will End… Eventually

We can all learn some valuable information from Brian Schoeneman. So if you want to run for political office, you need pay close attention to the way Brian works his magic. And then do the opposite.

All Republican Hanover BOS Unlikely After November 2015 Election

Four years ago a lot of us were working very hard to elect an “All Republican” Board of Supervisors in Hanover County. Hanover County is a Republican stronghold, after all, and the task was not impossible. In fact, as it turned out, with the exception of the Mechanicsville District race between incumbent Debbie Winans, an […]

Why is a Flat Income Tax More Stable than a Flat National Sales Tax? It’s Not.

In Response to our Nations’ national anti-holiday, April 15th, it would appear that the over-taxed bloggers of Virginia are indeed interested in tax reform. We’re not the only ones. The debate between a flat income tax and a steady national sales tax is a debate worth having, since either option is better than the catastrophic […]
