Turning Point Launches New Expansion Into Canada

in Politics by

In the wake of the upcoming Conservative Party of Canada leadership election, Chicago-based conservative youth organization Turning Point USA has announced a groundbreaking expansion into Canada. Several Turning Point staffers with extensive knowledge of the new project spoke exclusively to The Liberty Conservative regarding it. Joshua Thifault, Advancement Director at Turning Point USA, said TP Canada’s launch was spurred by popular demand: “Turning Point Canada came about because so many Canadian students asked us to make resources available to them.”

Ted Cruz Should Be Every Ron Paul Supporters’ Second Choice

in Politics by

Rand Paul is without doubt my first choice for the presidency. As the most libertarian member of the United States Senate, and the son of Ron Paul, Rand is strongly deserving of our support and I wholeheartedly endorse him for President of the United States. However, should he be unsuccessful in his presidential campaign and choose to leave the race at any time in the next few months, we should keep our options open, for there is clearly another candidate in the race with strong liberty credentials. 1. Ted Cruz is one of the most fiscally conservative members of the United States Senate. He boasts a 98% lifetime score from FreedomWorks and a 96% lifetime score from the Club for Growth. He has consistently voted for spending cuts and lowering taxes, and has repeatedly stood up to the establishment’s last-minute deals that do nothing more than increase the national debt. Whilst it is fair to criticize him on the very few occasions where he has not stuck to his core free market  principles, the…

The Absurd Attack On Rand Paul Via Association With Judge Napolitano

in Politics by

The leftist website Media Matters has published a hit piece on Kentucky GOP Senator Rand Paul. In the article they attempt to smear Senator Paul by exposing his relationship with Fox News Contributor and former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano. Senator Paul wrote the foreword for Judge Napolitano’s new book, Suicide Pact: The Radical Expansion of Presidential Powers and the Assault on Civil Liberties. Media Matters claims that Napolitano is dangerous because he is a “9/11 Truther” and Confederate apologist. By smearing Napolitano, they’re trying to tarnish Paul. But there is one problem: the claims against Napolitano are mostly nonsense.     Here at Lions of Liberty we haven’t held back from criticizing Senator Paul when he has strayed from libertarian principles, which he does with increasing frequency. There’s nothing wrong with criticizing a politician, but it should be done based on their policy and character, not by manufacturing controversies. Let’s review the claims against Napolitano and by association Paul, which links them both to the 9-11 Truther movement because…

Listen Or Ignore The Voices?

in Politics by

In our daily lives, we hear thousands of voices. They come from TV, the internet, our family, our friends, our churches, and every other place where we have interaction with others. Everyone has their opinion on how we should think or what we should believe. Who do we listen to? You may come across a few different types of people in your day to day interactions. There are those who basically parrot whatever their preferred source for opinion is. Whether they get their opinion from Bill O’Reilly, John Stewart, or even a good source it is obvious they just repeat what they are told to think without much critical thought. Buzz words are usually a generous portion of their argument, and logical fallacies are contained in their comebacks (for more on logical fallacies click here). Strive to not be one of those people. Spend some time on introspection to determine whether you have any depth or originality to your opinions. Next are the people who watch Fox News and…

A True Liberty Conservative

in Politics by

Dr. Dave Brat truly embodies what it means to be a Liberty Conservative. This libertarian-leaning economics professor, Tea Party activist and family man recently achieved the greatest political upset of the decade in a historic primary challenge against the third most powerful elected Republican in the United States, Eric Cantor, and his $2 million war chest. Brat has humble roots. He grew up a devout Protestant in Detroit, the son of a medical doctor and a social worker. He then travelled to Virginia and Princeton for college and earned degrees in divinity and business administration along with a doctorate in economics, before going on to serve as a professor at a liberal arts college in Richmond, where he stood true to his faith in God and the free market, despite strong intellectual opposition from the collegiate elite. He was finally appointed to advise Virginia Governor Tim Kaine on economic policy, a surprising move for a liberal Democrat such as Kaine. While by no means a radical, Brat is an…
