The Predictive Power of Philosophy: AYN RAND on THE FUTURE

As a Christian, I have always found it difficult to discuss my favorite philosophers with others, since each of the philosophers with the most profound influence over my reason were atheists; most of them attacking Christianity, faith, and God. Some find it strange that a Christian could be so completely influenced by non-Christians, but this […]

The Liberty Strategy

As I speak with Virginia’s Republicans, I find that there are a significant number of them who feel that they have no choice but to vote for Ed Gillespie as the lesser of two evils. I am also hearing that should the Republicans nominate a candidate for President in 2016, such as Chris Christie, Jeb […]

The Muck In Mississippi

Yesterday, June 24th, the Republican Establishment revealed just how far they were willing to go to accomplish Mitch McConnell’s dream of “crushing the TEA Party”.  If you’ve been checking Drudge and Breitbart, you already know the story. The subject matter of this article isn’t what happened, but rather what we are going to do about […]

This Isn’t Purity, It’s Survival

Politics can be an exhausting enterprise. We’ve manufactured a system that empowers the Congress and State Legislatures to decide who wins and who loses in business and in life; a system that practically forces corruption on any enterprise or individual capable of engaging in it. If Congress decides the tax code and if they decide […]

Executives Gone Wild

President Obama has blazed new trails toward tyrannical abuses of executive powers. What has he done? Well: a) The Targeting of political opposition using the IRS. b) Bullying of the “free press” through Obama’s Justice Department. c) Arming Mexican Cartel’s resulting in the death of an American. d) Refusing to aid an American Embassy in […]

SHOCKING NEWS: Rove Says We Must Support Gillespie!

Wall Street Journal / Fox News That doesn’t mean these Republicans will be home free. If Democrats sense an opportunity, they will jump in with last-minute attack ads. But with Montana, South Dakota and West Virginia probably not in the cards—half the seats Republicans need to win a majority—Democrats hope to save endangered incumbents elsewhere. […]

The Gillespie Conundrum

I have not heard a single intelligent line of reasoning why I, or any other Republican, should vote for Ed Gillespie for Senate. The only practical argument depends upon the logic of the ends justifying the means. I am told that it is of such incredible importance that the Republicans take back the Senate that […]

Coalition Building & Compromise

Compromise. We hate this word. We hate this word because it reminds us of all the liberty we’ve compromised away. However, to build a coalition capable of competing with the Democrat Party, we are going to have to compromise. The idea that Christian Conservatives and Libertarians can coexist within a party without looking the other […]

Manufacturing Liberty and Other Stuff

Liberty doesn’t just happen. In fact, it usually doesn’t happen at all. This world is governed by the use of force, be it in the hands of policemen, military, or roving bands of Islamist Militants. To be free, one must create conditions amiable to liberty and manufacture a society strong enough to sustain it. What […]

Accepting the Reality of Republican Dysfunction

What is the Republican Party? The Establishment is comprised of the K-Street and Wall Street wealth-redistributors, but the base is comprised of Constitutionalists, Conservatives, TEA Party, and Libertarian constituencies. I’m beyond apologizing for my libertarian-bent and I refuse to accept that I have no right to a voice in the Republican Party or the Republican […]

Our “Hokie Pokie” Foreign Policy

Republicans are now in an extremely difficult political position, as they are forced to respond to the foreign policy failures of the Bush and Obama Administrations with regard to the Near East and Persia, and with regard to our Southern border. Let’s look first at the chaos in the Near East. President Obama has effectively […]

Global National Chaos

This is what happens when you ignore reality, or worse attempt to contradict it. The media terms a governments’ willing rejection of material reality “political calculation”, as if calculating falsehood could ever be an intelligent aspect of dealing with truth. Ladies and Gentlemen, when a nation as powerful as ours abandons reason for madness, madness […]

How POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY Could Change Virginia

If I told you that most of my political philosophy was derived from the study of John Locke, David Hume, Cicero & Aristotle, Charles de Montesquieu, Edmund Burke, Alexis de Tocqueville, Adam Smith, Friedrich Hayek, Henry Hazlitt, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Ayn Rand, would you have an understanding of the cohesive philosophy and the difficult contradictions […]

On Victory and Defeat

While I am exhausted, and like many of you hardly slept a wink last night, I have poured over the countless articles declaring the reasons for Dr. Brats victory and Eric Cantor’s loss. Maybe this is just exhaustion rearing its ugly head, but I am annoyed with the analysis. It appears that the national opinion […]

The Establishment & Their Voters

It is difficult to describe to Republican voters why their party is such an abysmal failure. The Republican Leadership, also known as “the establishment”, has been controlled by passionate advocates for big government, centralized power within the Federal Government, and command and control economics. Strangely, republican voters seem opposed to everything their party stands for […]

Lying His Way To Defeat

Eric Cantor clearly hasn’t spent enough time over the last two years speaking and listening to the constituents in the 7th District. If he had, he would have realized that they are increasingly politically aware, shrugging off the frustration of naivety and ignorance, and engaging the political system. As the 7th District grew more interested […]

Denying The Premise

On my drive home this afternoon, I’m listening to Mark Belling filling in for Rush Limbaugh. I tune into a segment on “the incompetence of The Left”. The argument being made by my radio was this: Barack Obama and the Democrat Party are obsessed with economic equality. However, if you look at the actual reality […]

A Party of Purists?

So they say that the TEA Party is a party of purists. They say a lot of things and this doesn’t make any more sense than the rest of their noise. There is nothing ideological about the United States Constitution, nor Capitalism and its functions, nor any of the common sense lessons regarding liberty and […]
