We don’t intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all. — Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964

How We Lost Marriage

David Bozeman

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

David Bozeman

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

David Bozeman

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.

Opportunists of Either Party Are a Threat to Liberty

David Bozeman

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

David Bozeman

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.

We Desperately Need Some ‘Extremism’

David Bozeman

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

David Bozeman

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

David Bozeman

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

David Bozeman

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

David Bozeman

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.

False Prophets Setting America at War with God

Bradlee Dean

We can see in America today that the church is countering their very purpose on this earth. Rather than the light reproving the darkness (Ephesians 5:11), we now have the church spreading the darkness as they attempt to put out the light.

The Entrepreneur and Liberty

Bob Ellis

If you are a regular reader of American Clarion, odds are that you will listen to what this woman says and have a "Duh!" reaction. After all, for most of America's history, virtually all Americans understood the things she says almost instinctively.

Shifting Sands and Mirages

The Commander in Chief of the USA has been dithering and having endless fun on the golf course while a Sunni horde of jihadists and savages in the Middle East has been allowed to swell its numbers to 35,000 with more joining every week. At the same time, and in direct consequence to the deeply suspicious procrastination of President Obama, the Muslim head choppers who comprise the so-called Islamic State (IS) have seized a massive 144,000 square kilometers of Middle Eastern land from Raqqa in the north of Syria as far as north west of Baghdad in Iraq.
