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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Five Issues I Look to See Addressed by Potential Republican Candidates

There are 5 policy issues which I believe ought to be priorities for grassroots Republicans. These are not libertarian suggestions that don’t translate to the social conservative or constitutionalist. These are 5 issues that I believe every American ought to regard as the most important issues facing our government and our society today. First, we […]

Illegal Immigration is a Simple Problem with a Simple Solution

The primary reason Republicans struggle with immigration, politically, is because they are willing to compromise on the most important principle involved in the debate. We can talk about the difficulties and expense of legal immigration, the impossibility of deporting 12 million human beings, the logistical problems of dealing with illegal immigrants once they’ve crossed our […]

The Grassroots of the Republic vs. Mitch McConnell

Being a libertarian is easy. You can criticize the Republicans and Democrats without any culpability. Being a grassroots Republican is hard. These people work tirelessly, not as paid political operatives, but as actively concerned citizens, fighting for the values and liberties they hold dear. However, they, as Republicans, are represented by the likes of Majority […]

And Your 2016 Presidential Nominee’s Are….

The history of presidential political theater and the superficiality of the American voter doesn’t inspire a great deal of confidence amongst libertarian and constitutional intellectuals for the upcoming 2016 elections. While the establishments struggle to inspire faith and positive feelings about their Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton campaigns, neither the media nor the public seem […]

A Call For Unity: Democrats, We Need Your Help

Why is a Flat Income Tax More Stable than a Flat National Sales Tax? It’s Not.

In Response to our Nations’ national anti-holiday, April 15th, it would appear that the over-taxed bloggers of Virginia are indeed interested in tax reform. We’re not the only ones. The debate between a flat income tax and a steady national sales tax is a debate worth having, since either option is better than the catastrophic […]

Why I Endorse the Fair Tax (H.R. 25)

The Fair Tax tax reform bill, in its current form (H.R. 25), is an attempt to introduce to the American Citizen a never before experienced freedom from government control in their lives. Every year the House of Representatives puts forth some version of the Fair Tax and every year it is defeated. Nevertheless, the Fair […]

With The Constitution In Shambles Who Should We Elect?

Power is the ability to do work. Political power is the governments ability to exercise legal control over its citizenry. The United States Constitution was written to enumerate and define those powers. Our current government exceeds those powers on such an indiscriminate scale that The Constitution has, in effect, lost its relevance and authority. As […]

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 […]

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