A Grim Future

What I have to say this morning will sound an awful lot like fear-mongering. As I go over the contents in my own mind I am uncomfortable and uncertain just how accurately my fears correspond to reality. So instead of making wild claims or accusations, which is customary for fear-mongering, I intend simply to put […]

Trump

This Veteran Says ‘Donald Trump is Right. John McCain is No Hero.’

A few years ago I was asked to be one of the judges in the American Legion’s Essay Writing Contest that rewards the area’s best and brightest students with a generous scholarship, one of the many great things this wonderful organization does. The essay question was simple. Does America still have heroes? And these were […]

Who is Jeb Bush?

In today’s modern political climate, a political candidate is not a candidate unto himself (unless he’s Donald Trump). He, or she, is a brand, a conglomerate of special interests looking to influence national policy. As has become obvious to all, politics is no longer about principle, integrity, liberty, or vision. So what is politics about? […]

What’s Wrong With America?: A Series of Troubling Statistics

In 2010 and in 2014, conservatives sent wave after wave of Republicans to Washington to put an end to our exploding debt, irresponsible spending, and out of control bureaucracy. Each wave was met with 3 impossible obstacles. The first obstacle was John Boehner and the Republican Leadership in the House of Representatives. The second obstacle […]

Imagine a Dirty Word – and that the Word is Compromise

Most of the patriots I know who serve as the life-blood of the Republican Grassroots movement in Virginia, will never compromise with the Republican Establishment in this State. I can’t think of a single argument I could use to coax them toward compromise. Every compromise they’ve ever made has backfired and blown up in their […]

Struggling With Islam: How a Tolerant Western Civilization has Caved to Intolerance

Western Civilization had enough of religious persecution. Millions fled religious persecution in Europe for The New World in America, but the battle for tolerance and liberty was not only won here in The States, but all across the Western World in general. This is not to say that we have not had to continue to […]

Rand Paul: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Rand Paul is unique amongst Republicans running for President in 2016. Anything but average, the Rand Paul campaign has been brilliantly tactical, patient, modest, and methodical (after some inside campaign shakeups at the beginning); however, this is a candidacy waged against all odds. Rand Paul is a libertarian-Republican with a 93% Liberty Rating from Conservative […]

Much Ado About Abortion

The following video of a Planned Parenthood executive discussing the harvesting and selling of unborn children’s organs, tissue, and extremities has reignited the abortion debate in this country. A “third-rail” topic and a Republican fund-raising topic (Republicans raise millions of dollars off of the abortion debate every year and do absolutely nothing about it), abortion […]

There are No Great Men in the Republican Party: The Donald Has Proved This

Donald Trump is showing the Republican Party the way, but the Republican Party is too cowardly to follow. Once you understand the fact that liberalism is built upon a foundation of lies, the best way to defeat them is to tell the truth. Democrats, both their voters and their leaders, are terrified of the truth. […]

What Rebellion Looks Like…

Rebellion. Civil Disobedience. Revolution. I keep hearing these words and phrases and cannot help but be interested by the sentiment. However, I do not see patriots and warriors calling for change, real change; I hear bloggers and writers and mouth pieces. I have heard similar sentiments from those with guns, people who hunt, fish, and […]

What To Make of The Donald?

Donald Trump is on fire; brandishing a flaming sword wreathed in frustrations shared by the vast majority of Americans, The Donald has shown a light on just how involved our political parties, businesses, politicians, and bureaucrats really are in the deliberate destruction of America. As an act of true Kamikaze politicking, I give The Donald […]

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 […]
