How We Lost Marriage

How We Lost Marriage

So, where did the defenders of true marriage go wrong? First, by not asking with a contemptuous groan, when did the left start caring about marriage? They have, through enacting lax divorce laws, establishing an entitlement subculture that renders fathers obsolete, and social mores that embrace the Playboy Philosophy and radical feminism, decimated marriage — the very institution they are now selling with warm homilies as a right for everyone.

Making the Moral Case for Capitalism

The American Right has yet to fully make the moral case for capitalism. Too many conservative writers and politicians focus on its practical aspects, but details of order and efficiency do not sway the hearts of voters, compassion does. Not surprisingly, the party most hostile to our founding economic principles has won the popular vote in five of the last six presidential elections, in large part, by claiming the moral high ground for wealth redistribution and more centralized power.

Fast Food Workers: What’s Worth Protesting

If Americans take to the streets, as they arguably should, they should be demanding not a higher minimum wage but leadership with clarity, optimism and regard for individual initiative that inspired prosperity in generations past.

Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC)

Opportunists of Either Party Are a Threat to Liberty

In a nutshell, if you’re a liberal, why all the centrist posing? Embrace your progressive ideology. Shout it from the rooftops. Moderates and opportunists of either party are insidious threats to liberty, as they are too hard to predict.

Faux Conservatives: More Dangerous Than Liberals

Faux Conservatives: More Dangerous Than Liberals

Ted Cruz bears the label of an out-of-touch extremist because few if any on his side will rally to his defense. Ted Cruz is a victim of the high school social network mentality, where the cool clique decides who it’s ok to laugh at and make fun of. The senator, of course, wears a giant kick-me sign on his back, and the Kathleen Parkers go along, deathly afraid of not fitting in, uninterested if the dork in the hallway might possess a redeeming quality.

President Reagan, calling on the Soviet leader to "tear down this wall," June 12, 1987

We Desperately Need Some ‘Extremism’

Productive discourse requires reason, authenticity and passion, and, in showing passion, one does not walk on eggshells worrying about how the self-appointed etiquette experts will perceive him. The voters can discern the heat of the moment from the cold, hard facts. The next great Republican leader will offer choice, contrast, charisma and principle, and if the water carriers for the D.C. status quo label him an “extremist,” hopefully he (or she) will wear that charge as the proverbial badge of honor.

Sarah Palin: An Ignored Example for the GOP

Sarah Palin’s days as governor were marked by her “pragmatic, postpartisan approach to solving problems” How, in one short year, did she morph into the hideously inept caricature created by the smart people in media and entertainment? Obviously, this isn’t about policy or performance. This is personal. The Republican Party could use her backbone, spirit and buoyant sense of self identity.

The Death of Virtue

Our public servants crunch numbers and flush founding principles and the values of their law-abiding, traditional-minded constituents down the toilet. With not nearly enough jobs to go around and state and local budgets buckling under massive debt (and let’s not forget ever-increasing health care costs), self-serving politicians are placing party before country, with Democrats, at least, sharp enough not to destroy themselves by empowering the other side.

Seeking a Cure for Conservative Malaise

Those who cherish Constitutional self-government and capitalism must not only hold onto those ideals, they must unite and forge onward to create a true national renaissance. The future may well depend on it, because the statists are banking their continued dominance on your never-ending burnout.

Leftist Target of the Week: Hobby Lobby

Leftist Target of the Week: Hobby Lobby

We could make this a regular feature. Just recently we profiled Papa John’s Pizza, whose founder and CEO remarked that Obamacare might force franchises to cut employee hours. They, of course, have been enduring threats of boycotts and verbal spitballs from various precincts of the left. This week’s focus of derision is a seemingly benign arts and crafts chain named Hobby Lobby.
