As Ryan Mimics Boehner: Remember… We Told You So.

They say that a day in politics is like a year. Often times, we forget what happened yesterday. Mired in the confusion and captured by the kerfluffles of the moment,  we treat each instance in politics as if it existed in a vacuum, oblivious to the long logical chain of events which led to the […]

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.

Why Are You Going to the Polls On June 9th?

[yop_poll id=”4″] Local and State politics are utterly different animals from national politics, primarily due to the fact that local and state politics have a much more palpable and immediate effect on our lives.

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.

Imagine A Third World War: But Not How You’d Imagine It

Imagine, the rise of a religious movement independent from any single national government or collection of governments, raising armies and waging wars in an attempt to conquer and defeat all other societies, philosophies, and cultures.

The Insanity of Mandatory Spending

Two-Thirds of the federal budget is dictated by law and is considered mandatory spending. If the United States Congress passes a law stating that a benefit is to be given to individuals in a particular circumstance, then the cost of that law, in terms of the cost of benefits, is whatever it is, without oversight […]

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 […]
