A Thought Experiment on Gun Control

In the aftermath of the attack in Orlando, we have heard the usual calls for more gun control.  The argument goes as follows “If only we had more regulations on the owning of firearms, these types of shootings could be avoided.”  (If you listen to some people on the left, you would think the Second Amendment only protected the right to hunt deer.) However, let’s take gun control to its full and logical conclusion.  What would happen if we eliminated all civilian owned firearms in the country?  Not just sidearms or commonly mischaracterized “assault weapons”–which has become a left-wing euphemism...

Donald Trump’s Nationalism vs. True Patriotism

Conservatives do not usually cite Mother Jones as a go-to source for political commentary. But the folks at Mother Jones have unearthed a hilarious quote from Donald Trump.  The man who brands himself as the man to “Make America Great Again” by winning his battle against political correctness, doesn’t much care for the concept of American exceptionalism (emphasis mine): I don’t like the term. I’ll be honest with you… I don’t think it’s a very nice term.  We’re exceptional; you’re not.  First of all, Germany is eating our lunch. So they say, ‘Why are you exceptional? We’re doing a lot better...

No, the VA is not like Disney

Every once and a while, somebody says something so outrageous you have to double check to make sure you heard them correctly.  Secretary of Veterans Affairs Bob McDonald did just that last week.  The VA Secretary said that When you go to Disney, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line? Or what’s important?  What’s important is what’s your satisfaction with the experience? Aside from the fact that long wait times are generally synonymous with unpleasantness and inferior service, the comparison of caring for the nation’s veterans to an amusement park ride is disgraceful.  For their...

A Recap of the Libertarian National Convention

Some conservatives are searching for a third party or alternate candidate. Not willing to throw their support behind Donald trump or Hillary Clinton, they have looked elsewhere this year. Enter the Libertarian Party, which held their party’s convention over Memorial Day weekend.  The Libertarian Party has worked hard to recruit anti-Trump conservatives this year, but at their convention they did what capital “L” Libertarians always do: make fools out of themselves. The Libertarian Party nominated former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson for the second cycle in a row. In a limited sample size, Johnson polls an average of 7.5% against Clinton...
