Tweet “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is True, whatever is Noble, whatever is Right, whatever is Pure, whatever is Lovely, whatever is Admirable –if anything is Excellent or Praiseworthy- think about such things.” –Philippians 4:8 Conservatism is not about winning elections.

Tweet Any simple examination of the history of civilization will shed light on two of the most successful empires of all time– The United States of America and The Ancient Roman Empire.
