Gearing Up for Debt Ceiling Debate

At some point in October of 2015, the Obama Administration will ask for yet another Debt Ceiling increase under threats of some inevitable apocalyptic federal default on the national debt. Obviously, we’ve been here before; and I think we all know what John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and President Obama intend to do. President Obama will […]

What is the Republican Party? And What is Our Place in that Party?

Donald Trump and Third Parties are not viable embryoes for growing or effecting serious political change. Constitutional conservatives and libertarians are trapped within the Republican Party and, perhaps, the error in our thinking is that the Republican Party is our party and that it has some obligation to represent us in Congress. If we take […]

The Rubes of the Republican Party

Brian Schoenaman, of Bearing Drift, has just published an amazing defense of McConnell and Boehner entitled, Tired of Being Lied to? Blame Yourself. I really don’t feel like quoting his article, but I recommend that everyone read it (and read the comments!). I’m not necessarilly trying to drive Bearing Drift traffic, but at the end […]

Time to Protest the Republican Party

We wanted to send the GOP Establishment a message in 2010, so the grassroots sent a wave of conservative represenatives to the House of Representatives. In response, the House Leadership, under John Boehner, thwarted all their efforts and pressured them into obediance. Nothing happened. Boehner’s excuse was that without the Senate, there was nothing the […]

My Personal Struggle with Senator Ted Cruz

Every morning I wake up with the desire to write one article: I Endorse Rand Paul for President. Every morning I want to pull that trigger. Rand Paul is the closest thing this country has ever had to a Constitutional Libertarian. I am a Constitutional Libertarian. Every morning, I’m stopped from writing that article, because […]

Conservatives Have No Solutions!

“Conservatives have no solutions” – have you heard this? Maybe you’ve heard it phrased more like, “Well, if you cut Food Stamps, what’s your plan to feed the poor?” “If you don’t support the EPA, what’s your plan for saving the environment?” “Against Tax Increases? Well, what’s your plan for funding the government”? For most […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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