Compromise and the Grassroots

When is uncompromising principle applied absolutely a poor political strategy? For both the brains and brawn of the freedom movement, the term “compromise” holds the most bitter taste. It’s the word we hear every time a politician explains to us why he or she didn’t do the right thing. It’s a white flag and it’s […]

Civil Forfeiture: Government Theft Without The Pretense

Don’t you hate when the government takes your money? Oh, sure, paying taxes that contribute to programs you don’t agree with is kind of a pain. But I’m actually talking about the government physically reaching into your pocket and taking all of our cash under threat of imprisonment. Sounds like something only Denzel Washington would […]

Why Democrats Win (Part II): Reversing the Narrative

Photos by Vox Efx, (Note: Part 1 is here) The Democrat Party is not alone in its belief that the federal government exists to shape, mold, and control the composition of American society, but its vision of what America must become is by far the most idealistic and impossible of the Statist agendas in existence […]

Why Dave Brat Excites and Inspires

Like many of you, I had the opportunity to listen to Dave Brat last Thursday at Life Church in Mechanicsville, Va. For those who have not yet been to a Dave Brat event, I would encourage you to do so. There are few citizens running for political office in this country with the intellect and […]

Narrative: Why Democrats Win (Part One)

The Democrat Party, fueled by the Progressive movement, is masterful in the establishment of narratives in the public psyche. I cannot tell you how many people I know that refuse to vote for Republicans because Republicans only care about rich corporate elitists and hate the little guy. Republicans are all bigots and racists and homophobes. […]

I am an American

I’ve been a Libertarian since 1996, after reading Friedrich Nietzsche, David Hume, Friedrich Hayek, Ayn Rand, Adam Smith, Aristotle, and Francis Bacon. These men and women changed the way I viewed the world, which was primarily Marxist as a teenager. 18 years later I find being a “libertarian” somewhat difficult, because my principles did not […]

Ideals Versus Reality

Why do young people support Marxism and Liberalism, when their every natural instinct opposes submission to authority? It is important to understand that in the absence of objective experience, the individual grasps for broad ideals within which to believe. The market place for ideals is wide open and hardly any of the people in the […]

Governor McAuliffe’s Medicaid Argument

Governor McAuliffe was on WTOP’s “Ask The Governor” this morning, making his case for Medicaid Expansion through the Affordable Care Act. I was in my truck, so I couldn’t call in, but listening to the Governor while driving is probably as dangerous as texting, or putting on makeup, or clipping ones’ toenails while operating a […]

The Most Important Battle in this War…

Are you familiar with the phrase “Rockefeller Republicans”? If you’re not, look it up. The Rockefeller Republicans were the Republican establishment for decades. In the late 50s and the early 60s, Barry Goldwater led a movement, along with Alan Greenspan and Ronald Reagan, against the Rockefeller Republican Establishment. For twenty years, these conservatives and constitutionalists […]

Governors Medicaid Expansion: Mission Impossible

Whats on the table? 400,000 Virginians registered to Medicare. The cost? The federal government will subsidize the costs for three years and then Virginia is on the hook for the rest. We’ve already seen just how poorly Virginia is handling current Medicare registrations. Why would we expect 400,000 new registrations to work better than 40,000? […]

Medicaid in Virginia: More of the Same

42,000 HealthCare.gov applications stalled in Virginia Medicaid limbo Ladies and gentlemen, Virginia has handed over the State Government to progressives (aka liberals, aka statists) and the result is apparently no different in Virginia than in Washington D.C. How can Virginia afford 42,000 more medicaid applications? We’ve neither the money nor infrastructure in place to handle […]

The Importance of Principle

Every person of principle has trouble when it comes to dealing with political parties, which for a myriad of reasons seem utterly immune to principle. Every time we make a principled argument about why a particular policy is wrong, we’re shouted down as being “purists” or “impractical” or “uncompromising”. What the impure, practical, compromisers forget […]

Prognostication: The Lessons We Didn’t Learn in 2010

The following is from an article I wrote in 2010: “Independents across the nation are grappling with a difficult choice in November. Do they punish the Democrat Party’s overreaching policies by once again entrusting the Republicans with power in Congress? The consensus, it seems, is that independents are willing to trust Republicans again, if and […]

Cantor’s Backward Philosophy

When Majority Leader Eric Cantor says that he wants to help people, I have no doubt that he is sincere in his desire; but the government does not exist for the purpose of helping people. I am constantly astonished that this thought make me a radical. Our government doesn’t have the right or constitutional authority […]

Reader Post: HAPPY EASTER!

Here’s the last seven sayings of Jesus Christ on what we Christians call “Good Friday”: 1.) Luke 23:34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up His clothes by casting lots. 2.) Luke 23:43 Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, today you will […]

Reader Submission: PASTOR’s ATTITUDES Now and Then:

One of the most glaring differences between Colonial and modern America is the attitude of our pastors. In 1770-1776 (and actually for many years previous to this period), Colonial pastors (of all denominations) lit the fire of freedom in the hearts of their congregants like no generation has ever seen — before or since.
