This Isn’t Populism. It’s Revolution. It’s Virginia.

Immediately after Congressman Dave Brat defeated House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a 7th District Republican Primary, pundits gave credit to Brat’s populism. He ran against Wall Street and the Chamber of Commerce as an economist, which spoke volumes; and he ran against the Washington Establishment and their relative distance and disinclination toward their constituents […]

A Libertarian Solution to a Republican Problem

From 2004 to 2012, the Republican Party lost around 3 million voters. While Romney scored big with Independents, something the Republican Establishment has always believed was central to their success, he lost the uninformed, 9 to 5, taxpayer who have neither the time, nor the inclination, to follow politics and political theater. Pollsters and analysts […]

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.

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 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 […]

Five Ways To Make A Difference in Politics

If you are scouring Virginia Right this evening, or tomorrow morning, I can assume two things: First, that you are interested in politics. Second, that you tend toward a more conservative political philosophy.

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 […]

Baltimore Burns: What’s Wrong With Urban Culture?

The violence in Baltimore and Ferguson have led many to question what’s wrong with “urban culture”; and let’s face it, when we talk about “urban culture”, let’s at least have the courage to admit that we are talking about black culture. “Black Culture” is something that can be seen objectively and first hand, but it […]
