Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged. — Ronald Reagan

Play to Win, or Don’t Bother

Bob Ellis

Steve Deace has a great column at BarbWire, and it exposes...the lack of seriousness and dereliction of duty on the part of Christians and conservatives. You see, we on the Right face an enemy that understands we are in a war of good and evil (and they are Hell-bent on pursuing evil); they aren't fooled (by their own propaganda aimed at us) that politics is a game, or a social exercise, or a sport, or a friendly disagreement about how to get things done.

No Political Fix to America’s Death Spiral

J. Matt Barber

I’m never going to win a popularity contest. It’s not my goal to be liked. I’ll probably never be a “Fox News contributor” or even broadly recognized as a dutifully compliant cog within the greater, GOP-heavy “conservative” political wheel. That’s because I say things like this: There is no political fix to America’s death spiral.

When the News is Busted

When the news is so often bad, we could all use a laugh. Let's laugh about the news a little...

A Poetic Perspective on Politics, Social Media and the Military

A.J. Castellitto

Fundamental transformation Almost complete, You plot, you position, you sow, you reap, Children and wife are by your side? But will you sleep tonight, A change of course A guilty plea, It’s not too late to make amends

Political Party Poison

Derek Howell

Thomas Jefferson, in his draft of the Kentucky Resolutions, explained “[i]n questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.” Can we honestly say that our contemporary elected representatives, comprised of Democrats and Republicans, in Washington, D.C., are bound from their mischievous actions “by the chains of the Constitution”? No, it appears that the chains have been broken.

Political means don’t achieve moral ends

Star Parker

Despite our obsession with political systems and processes, the quality of our lives ultimately flows from the behavior of individual human beings and not from any meticulously designed political system. The best any political system can do is to assure political freedom. But it cannot assure what individuals choose to do with their freedom and the values that will define their lives.

Predictions for 2014 = 2013²

JD Longstreet

Pundits, so I am told, on or about, December 31st, are expected to make predictions for the coming year. Normally, I don't do this, preferring to make all sort of wild predictions throughout the year, most of which turn out to totally wrong. Howsoever, never let it be said I did not do my part to muddy the future waters of the new year 2014.

Political Wars: The Establishment Strikes Back

Robert Romano

If 2013 was any indication, 2014 and subsequent years will see the continuation of institutional retaliation against not only the tea party, but of a wider anti-establishment sentiment prevalent on both the political right and left.

Five Things More Important Than Politics

David John Marotta

Politics is the art of governing or the practice of exercising control over a community. What separates political control from simple persuasion is the threat or use of force. Most people don't think much about the tyrannical nature of politics when force is combined with the thousands of pages of federal law on the books. Every law limits our freedom. For the oppressed in the society, it matters little if the rule of the government is based on the divine right of kings or a 51% majority of one political party.

Political Action Follows Political Philosophy

Dr. Robert R. Owens

The vast majority of human action reflects the thoughts, beliefs, and feelings of the actor. There have always been and there will always be those whose actions are erratic or divorced from reality. The actions of this small minority are best ascribed to pathology not philosophy. For the rest of us we think, therefore we are. What we think about today, we act upon tomorrow.

Once Upon A Time …

JD Longstreet

How is it possible for a great American political party to be so out of touch with its constituents, so completely tone deaf to their wants and desires, so separated from the reality of the world around them? With citizens looped together into one vast globe encircling network of information and communication, how is it possible for the GOP to be so ill informed?

Pro-Markets or Pro-Business?

Ken Connor

It's no secret that the Republican Party has for some time been coping with an multifaceted identity crisis. If ever Republicans had an opportunity to educate Americans on the vast difference between the virtues of free market capitalism versus the vices of crony capitalism, and if ever there was a time for the GOP to renew its commitment to the former, this is it.

Islam is Incompatible with a Free Society

Gina Miller

The fact is that Muslim operatives are using our Constitution and our freedoms against us. They are furthering their stealth jihad against the United States by hiding under our freedom of religion. When our Founding Fathers created the Constitution and codified our God-given freedom of religion, they never intended it to protect the subversive activities of Trojan horse enemies of the United States. They never meant for the First Amendment to give cover to anti-American treachery.

"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
