Jefferson Davis HWY: Change the Name or Dig it Up Completely?

Democrat circles are facing difficult decisions in Virginia. Route 1, otherwise called Jefferson Davis Highway, has become a stain on the political landscape in Virginia. Forced to decide whether to revise history or to utterly remove it all together, new problems face VDOT and our Governor. On one side of the debate, those who think […]

No Constitution Could Save Us

“Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?”   “A Republic, if you can keep it.” – Benjamin Franklin The Constitution was never going to save us; not from the inevitability or eventuality of these days before us, but from facing our own responsibility to cherish, defend, and fight for the principles within our […]

Mr. President: I Don’t Want Your “Help”!

According to the USA TODAY, President Obama plans to up the national overtime threshold from $23,660 to $50,000 for salaried employees. A proposed new rule governing overtime pay will mean bigger paychecks for up to 5 million workers, Obama administration officials said Tuesday. The change “goes to the heart of what it means to be […]

Five Ways To Make A Difference in Politics

If you are scouring Virginia Right this evening, or tomorrow morning, I can assume two things: First, that you are interested in politics. Second, that you tend toward a more conservative political philosophy. So rarely do we get to celebrate victories on our nations’ conservatives blogs, and yet so long as the fight continues, people […]

Is the Judiciary Responsible for the Erosion of Liberty in America?

Over the last couple of days, I have heard increasing insight into the role of the judiciary in the deterioration of American liberties. Mark Levin, hearkening back to his first book, Men In Black: How the Supreme Court is Destroying America, lambasted The Court last week for essentially superseding its authority, time and again. If […]

A New Day in America: A Whole New Level of Stupidity

Over the last few days, the Supreme Court has, again, rewritten the Affordable Care Act, legalized gay marriage, and upheld the Obama Administrations application of the Fair Housing Act. So, my personal reaction to these three rulings. First, on the upholding of the ACA: I cannot imagine a circumstance in which I’ll be able to […]

Why “The Left” is Winning the Culture Wars: And How To Stop Them

The American Culture war can not be fought with competing ideals. Nor can it be fought with mere ideas, nor images, nor a defense of tradition, nor anything we’ve tried in the past. We must ask ourselves, first, why are we losing the culture war? And second, if our strategy isn’t working, why are we […]

A New Republican Party

In a conversation with a fellow libertarian, we discussed the impact of the civil war within the Republican Party. We brain-stormed solutions, but nothing quite seems feasible, as neither of us can imagine a way to defeat Wall Street, K Street, and the Military Industrial Complex, and all the good old boys running the show […]

Convention? Primary? Money, Money, Money!

I am new to Virginia Politics (going on two years), so you will have to excuse me for my intolerance of a great number of seemingly popular opinions with regard to elections in this state. For those considering conventions as a solution to whatever problems you perceive in the Virginia electoral process, I would like […]

Hysteria is Dangerous: Dealing with Liberal Fantasy

We’ve all had a great deal of fun at the expense of liberals these last few weeks. We’ve got men who think they are women (transgender), and white women who think they are black women (transracial), and even people who self-identify with other species. The ridiculousness of it all begins with the liberal intelligentsia praising […]

Ground Breaking Study Reveals Republican Conspiracy!

In a stunning report, which has no doubt already shaken America to its very knees, the brilliant social scientists as Salon have unearthed a truth which will surely destroy the Republican Party for generations to come. Through obscure and tireless effort, Sean McElwee has discovered, in America (Yes America itself!), that folks who are not […]

Global Trans-Formation: The Real Consequence of the Trans-Pacific Partnership

They call it Obamatrade. That’s their first mistake. This isn’t Obama’s trade deal. This is a six year long endeavor by multinational corporations to break down protectionist trade policies in Asia. As a free trade agreement, from the little information we have, the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) could be anything from a NAFTA-style jobs trade to […]

Tiny Victories Aren’t Enough

Growing conservative and libertarian influence in the United States Congress may have its second temporary victory in as many weeks, as Republican Leadership may allow the Export Import Bank to expire, unwilling to bring it to a vote. Be assured, however, that while Wall Street howls and the media bends over backwards to protect their […]

Ted Cruz Endorses Vince Haley; and So Do I

Throughout Vince Haley’s campaign, his future constituents have gotten to know him as a sharp, constitutional conservative with big, bold ideas. His opponents, those well connected money-men and pastel cloaked bureaucrats-in-waiting do not have anything to offer the 12th district. I suspect that the majority of people following this primary prefer Vince Haley – but […]

We’re Not Responsible Enough to be Free

The most notorious failing we Americans experience as a society is our utter refusal to accept responsibility for our own lives in the presence of liberty. We’re a nation of busy bodies worrying over what everyone else is doing with their lives. We’re a nation of control freaks and micro-managers, obsessed with achieving impossible ideals […]

The Rise of The Islamic State

I had mixed feelings about going into Iraq initially, so I do not pretend as if I could foresee everything that would eventually take place. I do believe that we went into Iraq with a naive and irresponsible plan for reestablishing a new society. At present, however, we can all Monday Morning Quarterback this to […]

Why You Should Be Ashamed of Your Morals

Every person arrogant enough to hold morals shares the same intellectually dishonest position and are therefore a significant threat to society. What do they have in common? In order to hold moral beliefs a person must first accept that there is an objective difference between right and wrong. Understandably then, society has an obligation to […]

Thank You Mr. Haley! Thank You Speaker Gingrich!

In the Kenrick Ward piece, Gingrich Protégé Taps Voter Unrest with Tax-Killer Strategy, Gingrich touches upon something near and dear to my heart: Eliminating taxes. Vince Haley will indeed win over hundreds of voters like myself with a campaign that includes a proposal to eliminate Virginia’s State Income Tax. There are three irrefutable truths with […]

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 […]

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
