Conservative for a Day: As Narrated by a Liberal

I live with liberals. I live among them. On a daily basis I see union Democrats who honestly think we conservative Republicans want everyone to make three dollars an hour. I went to school with progressives that actually believe we hate the earth and all the people in it, and that we hope and pray to return to a sort of Darwinian society of acting like feral barn cats and foraging for nuts and berries and bludgeoning each other to death in weird mating rituals — mating rituals that are only between one man and one woman, I might add....

No Habla a National Language!

Conservatives do some dumb things. More often than I’d like to admit actually. I mean, nothing in comparison to Liberals who do mostly dumb things, but still, we occasionally lose our heads and forget about, well, conservatism. Conservatism at its core is about personal liberty, limited government, and maximum freedom. It’s about NOT imposing government regulation in the lives of the citizenry. It’s about praising individualism, the family unit, and diverse cultures that, woven together, make the beautiful fabric that is America. So it is with great dumbfounded displeasure that I actually have to call out some of my fellow patriots on an issue that seems just so painfully obvious I shouldn’t even be opening myself up to the carpal tunnel risk to write this…alas, here I am. STOP TALKING ABOUT AN OFFFICIAL LANGUAGE! Seriously. Just dumb. Needless, divisive, and just dumb. An official language, in my opinion, is everything that the good ol’ USA is NOT about. Why do we as conservatives have this incessant need to galvanize a nationalistic idea that would make virtually no positive impact in any facet of anything? I’ve heard Newt Gingrich church it up, I’ve heard Michele Bachmann screeching about it, and I feel it is imperative to jump the gun and get the word out on what an absolutely absurd idea it  is before Mitt Romney starts using it as a talking point and...

We’ll All Be Billionaires: The Music of #Gen44

Tweet Dude, there is nothing I hate more than the sheer idol worship that the younger generation (our generation) gives Barack Obama. Just like Jason Mattera pointed out in his book, Obama Zombies  (recommended reading) the millennial generation, or #Gen44, if your name is Julia and you’re a mindless, nanny-state suck on Twitter, seems more interested in a messianic figure and pop culture icon than a President with real solutions. Frankly, I’m tired of being that guy. That conservative guy in class that has to raise his hand and ask if government is the answer every time an issue...

Ron Paul’s Army of Youth and Thomas Massie

Tweet Move over Justin Amash. There’s a new Republitarian firebrand in town. Pending the results of the Kentucky Republican primary on Tuesday, May 22, there may very well be another Tea Party darling representing the Bluegrass State. Thomas Massie, a husband, father, MIT graduate, and immensely popular Judge-Executive in Lewis County, KY launched his campaign back in January, after incumbent House Republican Geoff Davis announced his retirement. Massie has been lauded as a “champion of the Constitution,” and an “intellectual Conservative.” Having earned two engineering degrees from the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology, founding his own company, SensAble Technologies, Inc., creating jobs and obtaining 24...

Chasing Armaggedon

Tweet It’s no secret that Iran has been less than friendly with the U.S. since we uprooted their democratic government in 1953 and installed an unpopular authoritarian monarchy allowing for civil unrest, violent uprising, and an opportunity for radical clerics to take over the country and install an extremist, anti-western, anti-Semitic theocracy, vicariously creating the term “blowback.” Needless to say, from then on, the hate speech has been flowing out of Tehran, and America sits on her hands all the while fighting the urge to reach out and punch Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad square in the mouth. Ahmadinejad is notorious for wanting...
