An Open Letter to the Next Generation of Patriots

Steve Deace

It is the harmonic convergence of faith (your principles) and reason (tactics) that creates political success. If your principles/tactics are in conflict with one another you’re doing it wrong. When they complement one another you’re doing it right. If you don’t learn this lesson before it’s too late you become either “grump guy” or “groupie guy.”

…And The Pulpits Are Silent

Dave Daubenmire

Despite what the political parties would like you to believe, the problem in America is not the politicians, it is the pulpits. I hate to break the news to you, but most of America’s pulpits are filled with cowardly men. They are a shame to the Christ they claim to serve.

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

Bob Ellis

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.

2014

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.

False Premises of “I’LL DO IT MYSELF”

Michael Peroutka

Barack Obama has repeatedly threatened that if Congress doesn’t give him his way on immigration and bailouts and Obamacare, he’ll just do it himself. After all, he’s got a pen and a phone. All these bailouts and threatened executive action got me to thinking that maybe there is a common underlying and unspoken premise.

Another Attack on Religious Liberty

Bob Ellis

Religious liberty continues to fall under attack from homosexual activists and their "useful idiots" in government. One of the latest incidents to be reported nationally is in New York, where a family farm is being forced to accommodate a counterfeit wedding for two homosexuals.

Family Reunion

David Whitney

One of the great differences between all the creatures God made on earth and mankind is the long period of dependency. Many creatures are up and out of the nest in a matter of a few months. Human offspring however remain dependent longer than any creatures of comparable size.

Disposing of Those with Down Syndrome

Ken Connor

In today's culture we are constantly cajoled about the need to concern ourselves with "niche interests" and to demonstrate acceptance for those who choose to live "outside the norm." Unless, that is, the different characteristic is Down syndrome.

Growing Opposition to Common Core

Rick Manning

Not since conservatives virtually deserted the battlefield over textbook content and curricula in the 1970s leading to the gradual acceptance of the legitimacy of a federal Department of Education, has the public revolted against education policy so completely. The unifying factor is the Obama Administration’s Common Core program that was sold to states as a means to receive federal education dollars.

"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
