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 […]

Can Republicans Nominate a Conservative Candidate? I Don’t Know.

I don’t understand the Republican constituency. Sometimes I think I do, because I converse with you and I read your articles, your facebook posts, and laugh at the memes and the cartoons posted on your pages. I read articles written by Republicans and published in national newspapers. I listen to talk radio, yet I do […]

Glen Beck Abandons Republican Party: Should We All Follow?

So, radio talk show host and Blaze TV mastermind, Glen Beck has abandoned the Republican Party, and who can blame him? I actually came across this article as I was preparing to write a separate essay on the hopeslessness of the GOP. However, as a longtime supporter of a 3rd party, I would caution conservatives […]

The Antecedent to “The Crisis”

These are the times antecedent to the times that try mens’ souls. These are the days blamed for their promiscuity, resulting in the birth of the crisis. Every generation experiences trepidation in the face of the dangers of its’ time, often overstating that danger, but experiencing them fully as a reality for the first time […]

How We Lost our Liberty: What we Gave Up. What we Gave Away.

The state of nature has a law of nature to govern it, which obliges every one: and reason, which is that law, teaches all mankind, who will but consult it, that being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty, or possessions… Locke, John. The Second Treatise of […]

Article V Splits Conservative Grassroots

Over the last month, we’ve seen Mark Levin and the Constitutionalist Movement slam full steam ahead into an inconspicuous iceberg called the John Birch Society. Almost instantaneously, conservatives and constitutionalists picked sides, armed themselves with their talking points, and BOOM, you get what we had here last week. They say that when passions rise, logic […]

Article V is our Best Hope

Over the last month, the grassroots have embraced a strange form of hysteria. They have wrapped their arms around the President, around John Boehner and Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, in opposition to the ground-up pursuit of sanity by the American People, requesting their State Governments to do what their Federal Government will […]

24 Hours left to Contact Your Congressman

Over the next 24 hours, Congressmen Rob Wittman, Dave Brat, Scott Rigell, and Bob Goodlatte must be contacted and asked to publicly state whether or not they intend to vote for John Boehner for Speaker of the House.

TREASON: A Republican Party Completely Full of … Coulter.

Ann Coulter, the treacherous sycophant of the wealthiest corporatists within the Republican Establishment, recently spewed forth an article articulating, with shallow precision, the real strategy of the GOP. Their strategy is this: Republican voters have no choice but to vote Republican and Independent voters have no choice but to vote Republican. This insipid lecture, which […]

What to do About Robert Sarvis

If Virginian conservatives, constitutionalists, and right-leaning libertarians vote for Ed Gillespie in November, then the debate over whether Virginia Republicans will vote for anyone with an (R) by their name will finally and decisively have been decided. This is as simple as it gets, ladies and gentlemen. Ed Gillespie represents everything the TEA Party’s, the […]

The Republican Party Limps Into November

I am still hearing rumors about a “wave election” and the Republican Party taking back the Senate. The story goes, that President Obama’s increasing unpopularity and America’s dissatisfaction with the immigration crisis, foreign policy blunderings, and steady economic insecurity spells doom for the Democrats in November. That’s a realistic narrative, assuming there was an opposition […]

I’M LOOKING TO YOU VIRGINIA

As we approach November, exhausted by breach after breach of our nations constitutional integrity, frustrated by the continuous creep of despotic theater emanating from the bowels of the Democrat Establishment, and shocked by the gutlessness of an impotent and passionless Republican Party, what are we to think and feel? Are we to look forward to […]

September 1st, 1939

On September 1st, 1939, Neville Chamberlain addressed the country that he led with the following words, “I do not propose to say many words tonight.

A New Generation; A New Politics

On Tuesday, August 5th, I’ll be participating in a forum at the Montross TEA Party on engaging young people in politics. After months of giving this topic a great deal of thought, I’ve realized that there is no trick to getting young people interested in politics. In fact, instead of thinking about what is necessary […]

Dealing With This President’s New Immigration Strategy

An Ode to the Survivors.

In an age of nihilism and apathy, the last thing anyone wants to do is know anything for certain or believe something with conviction. Citizens, like politicians, though amateur and certainly not ambitious, look to polls for the strength to hold opinions concerning matters they do not care about and do not understand. Driven by […]

Tom White Says:

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