A Conservative Case for Separation of Church and State

I am a Christian, I am a conservative, and I believe in the idea of separation of church and state.  This may seem very odd coming from someone who attends church every Sunday and votes Republican every November, but I’ll explain. First of all, my belief in separation of church and state does not mean that I want religion dismissed from the public domain. On the contrary, I believe that the First Amendment reduces such a notion to a far-left pipe dream, and for good reason. However, what I am saying is that separation of church and state and...

The Eric Sheppard Challenge: Free Speech and the Flag

Controversy over the so-called “Eric Sheppard Challenge,” which involves people posting pictures and videos of themselves standing, stomping, and spitting on the American flag; the shooting at a “Draw Muhammad” event in Texas; and the Baltimore protests and riots have ignited debates about freedom of speech and expression, in addition to other societal issues.  The unrest in Baltimore has been covered ad nauseam almost everywhere in the press, and others here at The College Conservative have already addressed the incidents in Texas.  However, the Eric Sheppard Challenge has yet to be discussed to the same extent. The importance of free speech...

On The NSA’s Creepy Recycling Mascot

Rest easy, my fellow Americans, in the knowledge that our tax dollars have been hard at work at the National Security Agency. You see, there is “no greater threat” than climate change, according to President Obama.

That mascot’s name?  Dunk. Dunk is creepier than a birthday...

In Defense of New Jersey

Mention New Jersey to anyone in the other forty-nine states, and their mind will likely go to The Sopranos, The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Jersey Shore, and corrupt politicians. Don’t forget rude drivers, oil refineries, and the fact that we’re number one (or dead last, depending on how you look at it) in property taxes. Yes, my fellow Americans: look upon my home state, and see that it is a cesspool of fist-pumping, bird-flipping, spray-tanning jerks who send people like the recently indicted Bob Menendez to represent them in Washington. Yet New Jersey has a nasty reputation it just...

Handicapping the 2016 GOP Field

Earlier this week, I discussed my thoughts on the upcoming presidential election for the Democrat side, and I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the Republican field this time around. With Ted Cruz officially launching his campaign for the White House last week, Rand Paul annoucing just this week, and Marco Rubio set to announce “something” on April 13th, it’s safe to say that the green flag has flown on the Republican side, while the Democrats are all stuck waiting on Hillary Clinton. While I do not intend to attack or endorse any of the potential Republican...
