The Insanity of Mandatory Spending

Two-Thirds of the federal budget is dictated by law and is considered mandatory spending. If the United States Congress passes a law stating that a benefit is to be given to individuals in a particular circumstance, then the cost of that law, in terms of the cost of benefits, is whatever it is, without oversight […]

Response to Groundless Liberal Attacks Required!

Reader Submitted Warning this reading will require adult understanding: MATURE AUDIENCE ONLY Regarding the attack letter submitted by R.

Conservatives

Reader Submitted: It looks like conservatives should consider taking the next two years doing what they should have done two years ago. What is that you ask? During the last Republican convention the Progressive elites of the party made some rule changes as Ron Paul was threatening the GOP’s pick Mitt Romney for the nomination. […]

Zen and the Art of Mob Justice: Eric Holder

A day before terrorists stormed the undefended and unfunded walls of an American Embassy in Libya, apologies were made in Egypt with regard to a hateful video, which no one had seen, nor cared to see, as a pretext for… well… whatever might happen that night or the following day on September 11th. Today, if […]

Rand Paul Out in Front: No More Omnibus. No More Continuing Resolutions.

Rand Paul has called for an end to Omnibus Bills and lengthy Continuing Resolutions as a practical solution to dealing with the President’s signature Health Care Legislation (i.e. the largest fraud ever perpetrated on the American People).

My Letter to Congressman Rob Wittman

I would like to encourage anyone living in Virginia’s 1st District to begin writing Congressman Wittman, to impress upon him our desire for demonstrable leadership. Encourage him to resist going along with any Continuing Resolutions or Omnibus Bills that fund anything and everything, and accomplish nothing but growing our national debt. Your Congressman wants to […]

Congressman Rob Wittman & Virginia’s Historic First District

While the Virginia 7th has awoken, caught fire, organized, and led the way toward liberty, the historic Virginia 1st has been in perpetual hypersleep, guided blindly by a status quo equal to the interest of its special interests, but bereft of spirit, passion, and freedom. A district designed for a Republican able to appeal to […]

Now Hold Them Accountable

The Republicans won, which is great for them, probably better for us, but it remains the duty of each citizen to hold their elected representatives accountable. Most voters do not believe that there is anything they can do, besides to vote, to hold their representatives accountable. I would like to offer three simple things that […]

What I’ve Learned While Speaking With Democrats

A couple of mornings ago, I had the pleasure of speaking with a Gentlemen from Jersey about the state of our politics, our economy, and our country. I never asked him what political party he belonged to, but he worked for a municipality, was African-American, deeply concerned about his pension, and furious with his Republican […]

Libertarians in the Republican Party

The GOP has a lot of internal obstacles as this national political party tries to appease the Big Business establishment types, conservatives, and constitutionalists. Those three groups often cannot find middle ground. The Establishment runs the party, are focused on operating the government as it is, and while they try to appease their base (largely […]

How Democrats Get Away With Being Cooler, Smarter, and More Attractive Than Republicans

Still scorched and soured by an election season which raised the corporatist establishment Republicans to the pinnacles of power in our nations’ capital, I can’t help but warm to the GOP’s innocence and naivety in the wake of a mild, but simmering, liberal hysteria, gurgling for split seconds before exploding as if pieces of potassium […]

The Republicans Won: OK. Now What?

A new responsibility now rests with the Republican Party, with a commanding majority in The House and a solid majority in the Senate.

5 Reasons Why the Libertarian Party Continues to Fail Miserably

While Mitch McConnell and the Republican Establishment may have succeeded in crushing the TEA Party, dragging Republicans voters further left and winning on a vacant and ambiguous platform, the Libertarian Party has simply crushed itself with its own detachment from the human experience of average Americans.

What Women Want

Democracy or a Republic? Idealism or Objectivism? Good or Evil? Or….. the question we’ve all been asking long before politics or religion even entered into our little minds… What Do Women Want?

Why We Vote: An American Enigma

On Tuesday we vote. Well, some of us vote, while others, helplessly disenchanted with the process or otherwise disengaged, do not. Yet, many do vote and they vote for candidates who, normally, have worked their way up through the political parties and have gained the support of powerful special interests willing to fund their campaigns.
