Make Rand Paul Great Again

in Politics by

For many conservatives and libertarians, Senator Rand Paul has been a controversial topic over the last few years. As the son of former Texas Congressman Ron Paul, he already had his libertarian credentials solidified before he even started. Upon entering the Senate, he has pushed legislation to advance a number of pro-liberty goals and bring together coalitions on specific issues. He has been a negotiator, more so than his father was in his Congressional career. Senator Paul also has an integrity issue. Whereas his father never caved to the Republican Party, his son regularly has backed up the party. Past…

Through Liberty, We Will Find Peace

in Philosophy/Politics by

Whether anyone admits it or not, most human beings seek a peaceful existence free of disorder and unhappiness. We live our lives day by day trying to make ends meet, enjoy ourselves, and carry out our time on this Earth to the fullest extent possible. But despite all of these attempts, obstacles still present themselves. Historically, government is an obstacle to happiness. There is a careful balance humans have long sought between the security the state provides and the happiness we seek in freedom. To a degree, we require safety because threats do exist. As the world has become more…

The Inequality Of The Equality Movement

in Culture/Politics by

Equality – it is something that people fight for, something people desire, and I think most people would agree, something our society should strive for.  While the equality movement in America has represented various causes over the years, things like voting rights, racial issues, and feminism, it is now widely used to represent the LGBT movement.  The premise behind it is a noble one, and one that is very straightforward and simple – equal rights for everyone.  I think it is fair to say most people would agree that we all deserve to be treated equally on some level. This is…

Trump Supporters: Beware Of Misleading Polls

in Politics by

Dear Trump supporters, A recent ABC/Washington Post poll of “registered voters” purports to show that Donald Trump lags 12 points behind Hillary Clinton in a national head-to-head contest. In case you’re inclined to accept this at face value—don’t. First, this poll does indeed purport to gauge preferences nationally. Ultimately, what’s going to matter is how the candidates fare in the battleground states. For example, a Pew Poll from just last week showed Trump beating Clinton by two points in North Carolina (a state that Barack Obama won in 2008). Secondly, it is June. The election isn’t until November. Thirdly, this…

The Democratic Party Now Legitimately Favors Terrorist Rights Over Law-abiding Americans

in Politics by

Remember the great push on the left to shut down the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay? All through the Bush Administration years, the Democrats fought against the blatant lack of due process for people who were kept at this facility. Their rights had been violated by merely being detained without trial. In America, we have a Constitution and this document guarantees us a right to due process. The counterargument was that being terrorists, the rights America offers do not apply. This is a relevant point given where we are in the gun control debate. In the aftermath of the tragic…

The Abortion Decision And The Right To Bear Arms

in Politics by

This Monday, the US Supreme Court struck down several Texas laws that regulated how abortion is provided in the lone star state. The 5-3 decision is undoubtedly the most significant abortion ruling from the high Court since the 1992 case Casey v. Planned Parenthood where it clarified the Roe v Wade decision. The Court decided that Texas laws that were aimed at making abortion safer were an undue burden on women exercising their constitutional right to the procedure. The laws included requirements that doctors have hospital admitting privileges which proponents claimed would make abortion clinics be subject to the same…

Contrary To Popular Belief, Law-abiding Gun Owners Do Save Lives

in Politics by

The recent shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida has again cast guns in a negative light. After a terrorist took a device clearly not intended for mass murder and did just that, the debate has become politicized by the gun control lobby that is more concerned with an agenda then making the country safer. Incidents like what happened in San Bernardino, California and Paris, France highlight why a lack of guns can actually backfire. When law-abiding citizens are not allowed to own firearms because of the acts of bad people, bad people are allowed to take advantage of more defenseless…

Brexit Showcases The Obsolescence Of Big Government

in Politics/Tech/World by

By now Brexit has been analyzed from approximately every point of view, by everyone who wants to make a point with it; but amid the fear and festivity, one of the simplest points seems to have been overlooked. At its core, the choice of the British people was between union and autonomy, with experience informing both sides, and they chose the latter. Everyone is using the word historic to describe the Leave vote, because of its outsized impact on the world economy and the metaphorical cap it busted in the crown of the European Union (EU). It’s unclear how many have…

Brexit Is Good – Here’s Why

in Culture/World by

On Thursday, British voters chose the uncertainty of independence over the certainty of bureaucratic morass, the vigor of self-reliance over the sluggishness of dependency, and risk of prosperity over the security of stagnation when they decided to leave the European Union. The Brexit victory offers Britain, Europe and the global economy a chance to redefine the global landscape, realistically assess whether governments and politics are working, and set the stage for a renewed economic dynamism. We find ourselves in a moment of global uncertainty and anxiety. Terrorism has made bloody inroads to the West, with attacks in Paris, Madrid, London and the United States leaving…

Supreme Court Strikes Down Texas Law, Citing Apparent Constitutional Right To Abort Children

in Politics by

It’s amazing that people still take the Supreme Court seriously. Americans mock lawyers often for their high paid egos and ability to twist the law to their bidding, but in the end, it’s unelected lawyers that shape the entire basis of modern law. The Constitution takes a backseat whenever the lifetime tenured lawyers enter the picture. Now the Supreme Court has struck again, this time striking down a Texas law limiting abortions to those with medical credentials to do so. Under the law, doctors performing abortions would have to have admitting privileges at hospitals and clinics for the purpose of…

Why Republicans Should Embrace The Limited Government Approach To Marriage

in Philosophy/Politics by

Marriage is a difficult topic in politics. Should homosexuals be able to engage in a legal relationship together, and live their lives with the benefits of a state recognized heterosexual couple? More often than not, this tends to be a partisan battle, with Democrats arguing in favor of same-sex marriage and Republicans arguing against. For Republicans, the family is the foundation of a society, with the family being independent of government. On that note, Republicans have long believed that marriage, being central to the family structure, should be defined by the government. Movements across America have ranged from legislative definitions to…

Will Hillary Clinton Call Out President Barack Obama’s Commitment To Europe?

in Politics by

Partisan times are upon us. The general election is that special part of politics where principles and policy discussions become secondary to simply making sure the other party looks terrible. Anything probable Republican nominee Donald Trump does will be called out by the opposition party purely because of their party registration. The same is true for Associated Press-nominated Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. For that reason, it’s not entirely surprising that the Brexit response of Clinton would be based on what Trump said. Speaking for the first time after the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, Clinton slammed Trump without…

President Barack Obama Refuses Benghazi Questions, Confused About Separation Of Powers

in Politics by

For quite some time now, the Benghazi issue has been lingering in American politics. As the general election draws near, it threatens to be an issue to haunt Associated Press-nominated Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. For Republicans, the issue has been a rallying cry. Is it relevant however? Is this a legitimate issue or is it just more politicking? The debate over Benghazi itself aside, President Barack Obama is now entering as a major player and is letting his inner-constitutional scholar shine. The issue at hand is due to a recent line of questions coming from the House Select Committee on Benghazi.…

What Rand Paul Can Learn From Nigel Farage

in Politics/World by

It has been a fun time for proponents of independence and decentralization throughout the world. Most liberty conservatives that I’ve seen are struggling not to overdose on liberal tears in the wake of the historic Brexit vote. The great Nigel Farage, the iconoclastic Ron Paul-inspired leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), has quite the feather in his cap after being one of the primary orchestrators of this huge political blow against the European Union. Sadly, it doesn’t seem like we have anything to be nearly as excited over in jolly old America. Liberty conservatives have had their hopes…

Would It Make a Difference If Abortion Doctors Used Guns?

in Philosophy/Politics by

Tragedy is a horrible thing, but with it comes political controversy. We see this after every tragic murder spree, whether it be with a gun or another device. After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, transportation security stepped up and the surveillance state became greater. With the recent attacks at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, the gun control lobby has renewed it’s push to discipline law-abiding American citizens for the acts of terrorists. But is it really about saving lives or simply getting rid of guns? In a perfect world, we wouldn’t have weapons, because they wouldn’t be…

Brexit Shows America Why It’s Time To Democrexit And Republixit

in Philosophy/Politics/World by

Everyone knows the story of the Brexit vote. A movement within the United Kingdom started to bring independence to the country and leave the European Union. The topic has been an enormous hot button issue. It’s amazing that independence can be such a controversial topic, but it was something that even proved difficult when the colonies explored it. While it is amazing that independence is a controversial topic, it’s not entirely surprising. Regardless of the philosophical arguments, the implications of breaking apart from something are significant. But despite the fear of the great unknown, the voters took a step forward. Similar…

The Brexit Vote Highlights How Far America Has Fallen

in Philosophy/Politics/World by

By now the world knows that the United Kingdom has voted to leave the European Union, with the message of freedom sending governments and central planners into a state of panic and chaos. Here at home, President Barack Obama attempted to threaten the United Kingdom voters into submission with vague trade threats. It failed and arguably empowered the Leave movement to pull ahead in the final days leading up to the election. Who wants to be told by a foreign leader how to think and vote? There’s a special level of hypocrisy in the United States of America telling Britain…

Brexit Exposes The Left’s Utter Hypocrisy

in Politics/World by

I find it absolutely amazing the sheer level of intellectual dishonesty, self-righteousness, snobbery, and hypocrisy emanating from elitist leftists the world over. They have reached the highest levels of academia, media, banking, and government and are using all these institutions to push their radical and evermore regressive agenda on us. The recent decision by the British people, who democratically decided to take back their sovereignty from un-elected bureaucrats in Brussels, has sent the left into a rambling fury. The leave campaign succeeded despite all the hate, fear mongering, and lies the leftist media and academia spread in regards to this…

What It Truly Means To “Support The Troops”

in Politics by

“Support the Troops” is a popular patriotic catchphrase. By having that bumper sticker on your car, with the added emphasis of red, white, and blue colors, we can seek the validation from our peers that soldiers have our support. Standing with those bravely living and dying for our freedoms abroad is a noble task. But do we do this in spirit or just in words? There’s only a small handful of days in a year that people thank a veteran for their service or kneel down before the grave of a lost soldier. On Memorial Day, we have long parades…

The Gun Debate

in Culture/Politics by

As could be expected, the gun debate reappeared in full force after the tragedy that took place in Orlando.  All of the typical arguments from both sides are again being repeated ad nauseum.  From “we need to prevent this from ever happening again” on the left, to “from my cold, dead hands” on the right, and everything in between. In the post-9/11 world, both major political parties are increasingly coming out in support of restrictions on gun ownership.  The idea that anyone who is on a government watchlist (such as the no-fly list) should not be able to own a…

Make Britain Great Again

in Culture/Politics/World by

I am pleasantly surprised that the “Leave” side won in the UK today. As a nationalist, I generally support other nations putting their independence above the interest of global governance and multinational corporate/banking elitism. In the short to medium term, the prospect of the UK leaving the EU will cripple the Pound Sterling and, likely, dip the country into recession. Nevertheless, if they had stayed in the EU, then they would have lost their country soon enough to the Islamization imposed upon them by Brussels. I am not just referring to the Syrian refugee crisis. Rather, I am referring to…

Senator Bernie Sanders Fails His Own Movement, Will Vote For Hillary Clinton

in Politics by

Senator Bernie Sanders has lead a revolt through the Democratic Party over the last several months, crashing the Hillary Clinton coronation and getting under the skin of the Democratic National Committee. Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, never once hiding her bias, kept the primary in the bag for Clinton. Superdelegates have been Chairwoman Wasserman Schulz’s willing army of disciples keeping the party establishment on track. But to his credit, Senator Sanders stayed in the race and fought through each primary state. His movement expected him to stay in until the end and it became clear over time he was serious about…

The UK Has Done More To Scare Wall Street Than Bernie Sanders By Rejecting Big Government

in Economics/Politics/World by

Leading up to the big moment, there had been a lot of heated rhetoric and high stress anticipation. Would the United Kingdom actually vote to leave the European Union? When the news broke this morning, everyone reacted and did so strongly. After it was official that the vote was 51.9% in favor of leaving, Prime Minister David Cameron announced his resignation. Scotland’s government is scared,  panicking about the idea of another attempt to leave and Germany is expressing regret this happening. The big government empire in Europe has failed. Back here in the United States, it’s interesting to watch. Everyone,…

That Time Congressman John Lewis Was Frustrated About Being On a Government Watchlist

in Politics by

Government watchlists have become the next big thing in American politics. Whereas we once had due process to decide guilt and innocence by an impartial arbiter, we now have politicians and unelected bureaucrats deciding this for us. In order to ensure the power of big government remains strong, House Democrats have gathered together to sit in the middle of the floor in the House of Representatives and do absolutely nothing. This group of constitutional scholars is led by Democratic Congressman John Lewis. The concept behind due process is fairly basic. We are all innocent of any crime until proven innocent…

Senator Elizabeth Warren Rewards House Democratic Slumber Party With Capitalist Dunkin Donuts Treats

in Economics/Politics by

Senator Elizabeth Warren has a huge following on the left. She is widely considered a progressive hero, even if she is backing AP-nominated candidate Hillary Clinton over the true progressive and fellow Senate colleague Bernie Sanders. Her fiery rhetoric mirrors that of Senator Sanders, with hatred thrown at Wall Street and other rich people, while calling for massive minimum wage hikes. Yesterday, Civil Rights leader and Congressman John Lewis led a so-called “sit-in” on the House of Representatives floor. With catering and being pampered, it hardly qualifies as a legitimate protest or sit-in and is more accurately a slumber party.…

Cher Claims America Electing Donald Trump Would Be Gary Johnson And Jill Stein’s Fault

in Politics by

Famous singer Cher has made an entrance into political debate with the same tired third party blame game. In a tweet, she took a stand against Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein. The implication of the singer, who supports Associated Press-nominated Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, is that supporting any candidate other than those of either two major party is simply dividing the vote. This is the argument two party supporters resort to when no more logical points exist. Why should we vote for Hillary Clinton? Let’s not discuss the points of such an argument, instead opting for fearmongering…

Johnson-Weld Town Hall Disappoints Liberty Conservatives

Did the CNN Libertarian town hall capture the hearts and minds of disenfranchised liberty conservatives? For this conservatarian, who watched the town hall from start to finish, I would say a definite no. I still feel there is no candidate running for president that represents my views enough for me to vote for them. I have been very hopeful and optimistic with regards to the Johnson-Weld ticket. They appeal to libertarians and conservatives, I’ve been told. They are both former Republicans, they have executive experience, they can be the answer for liberty conservatives who will not vote for Trump of Hillary. But Johnson-Weld…

Harry Reid Supports Susan Collins’ Attack On Constitutional Due Process

in Politics by

The political response to the tragic Pulse shooting in Orlando, Florida has been like 9/11 all over again. Like after 9/11, the limiting of constitutional rights is presented as the only solution to keeping America safe. At the time, legislation like the USA PATRIOT Act was presented and pushed aggressively on Congress using fear tactics. The same is occurring now in regards to an attack on constitutional due process under the guise of supporting gun control. A number of proposals with varying strengths have been presented, all with the same general idea. The federal government maintains a number of watchlists…

U.S. Citizens’ Constitutional Rights Targeted Despite Analysis Showing Most Convicted Terrorists Are Foreign Born

in Politics by

The gun control debate continues in the political mainstream, now with many Americans and politicians calling for an end to due process. The idea is that someone who appears on a government watchlist, such as the “no fly” list, should not be able to purchase a firearm. The flaw in this argument is that American citizens who appear on the list will be deprived of constitutional rights based purely on suspicion. These citizens appearing on a watchlist aren’t necessarily convicted of a crime, but merely suspected of possibly committing one by government agents and bureaucrats. Senator Dianne Feinstein argued that…

LYING TED STRIKES AGAIN: Cruz Votes To Gut 4th Amendment

After the horror of the Orlando night club shooting, which killed over 50 people and injured over 50 more, each party has scrambled to encroach on fundamental Constitutional rights of the American people in an attempt to provide them with a sense of security. On the Democrat side, as we speak, members of the house of representatives are staging a sit in protest over the house GOP’s refusal to replace due process with secret lists as the tool to determine whether or not someone can be denied the right to own a gun.  Unfortunately, on the Republican side we are…

EU Hiding Plans For Continental Army Until Day After Brexit Vote

in World by

The ongoing battle between globalism and nationalism is on display most prominently here in the United States as Donald Trump, the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee who has run a campaign focused on nationalism and economic populism, prepares to battle the Democratic Party’s presumptive nominee, globalist puppet Hillary Clinton. That ideological struggle is not limited to the United States, as voters in the United Kingdom prepare to cast their votes in a nationwide referendum on June 23 to decide whether or not to leave the European Union. The referendum, known as “Brexit”, has divided the governing Conservative Party, with Prime Minister David Cameron campaigning heavily…

Senator Marco Rubio Launches Re-election Bid By Skipping Foreign Policy Hearing

Senator Marco Rubio is an interesting character in the United States Senate. While he’s not known for his word, he’s known for how he uses his word. Despite having an abysmal attendance record and poor stances on liberty, Republicans love the fact that he can make a whole lot of nothing sound like something. His oratorical skills have kept him in the light for a lot longer than he should have. When he launched his bid for the presidency, he revealed that he would not seek re-election in the United States Senate. Even after failing as a presidential candidate, he…

Congressman John Lewis Would Have Disarmed Fellow Civil Rights Leader Martin Luther King Jr.

Congressman John Lewis is leading a defiant movement on the House floor to push new legislation against the Second Amendment and due process of law. The movement, which involves a bunch of grown men and women sitting on the floor in the middle of the House of Representatives, is pushing for legislation that would make anyone appearing on a government watchlist ineligible for a gun purchase. The premise of the argument is that if you are on a government watchlist, you’re guilty until proven innocent and thus should be deprived of your constitutional rights. This is interesting because of who…
