Obama Calls Conservatives Extreme, But Who Is Really Extreme?

“Propaganda is a soft weapon; hold it in your hands too long, and it will move about like a snake, and strike the other way.” – Jean Anouilh The more desperate Obama becomes, the more often he appears on tv, or in the newspapers, to tell the American people just how awful the Republicans are. I’ve said it a million times, but it bears repeating: a classic trick of the propagandist is to pin on his enemies his own faults. In a recent interview with Tom Friedman of the New York Times, Obama took numerous Read more […]

Right Or Left: Who Are The Extremists?

One of the more frequent insults the Left likes to use against conservatives is to call them extremists. Conservatives are extreme, they’re radical, they’re fanatics, they’re on the fringes of society, they’re terrorists (which implies at least some level of violence), they refuse to compromise. These aren’t observations that the Left makes, but that doesn’t stop them from repeating these falsehoods over and over. It has become a meme now among the politically aware: conservatives are uncompromising Read more […]

If Theocracy Would Help America, Would Conservatives Support It?

American conservatives deeply love their country. They have a passion for it the likes of which are only rivaled in the congregations of evangelical churches for their Lord. So it puzzles me when I encounter conservatives who put something above the well-being of their country. And all of them do it. The Constitution is a wonderful set of laws, but it is fallible. It has been changed by the Legislative Branch over the years because the Founders allowed for it to be changed. Thomas Jefferson Read more […]

Why Conservatism Will Never Succeed

Many years ago, R. L. Dabney penned some wise words about conservatism that I would like to repeat here:  [Conservatism] never conserves anything. Its history has been that it demurs to each aggression of the progressive party, and aims to save its credit by a respectable amount of growling, but always acquiesces at last in the innovation. What was the resisted novelty of yesterday is today one of the accepted principles of conservatism; it is now conservative only in affecting to resist the next Read more […]

Nikki Haley Raises Liberal Tempers; Proving She Is A Great Governor

Gustavo Flaubert said: “The better a work is, the more it attracts criticism; it is like the fleas who rush to jump on white linens.” Criticism is an interesting creature. It can be motivated purely by honesty, or it can be motivated by fear. It can be brought about because of anger, or because of a desire to see someone succeed. It is an adaptability that lends criticism its bizarre traits. It is only in a criticizers motive that we can understand his intention. Only once we understand his motive Read more […]

Without True Conservatism, The Obama’s Of The World Will Prevail

Recently, Republican Party Chairman, Reince Priebus, announced plans to spend $10 million dollars reaching out to minority groups in a bid to attract a different group of American voters. The Republicans also plan to begin to embrace immigration reform and to soften the party’s stance on gay-marriage. A recent study commissioned by Republicans concluded that the party’s electoral success hinged on becoming more “inclusive and welcoming” of “non-traditional voters.” In other words, the Read more […]

Colin Powell And The “Media Republicans.”

I’m not an easily demoralized person; it takes a pretty big hit to knock me to the floor. That being said, I have become more and more disheartened with some in the Republican Party during this past election cycle and going into the new year. I’ve noticed that it’s getting more difficult to remain unscarred by the political machine. Colin Powell is adding to my scar tissue with his latest remarks. Now, Colin Powell–ever since his first endorsement of Barack Obama back in 2008–is certainly Read more […]

By Definition, Conservatism Cannot Be Extreme

Other than “racist,” “homophobe,” “Islamophobe,” “bigot,” and “sexist,” one of the media’s and the elected Democrats’ most preferred pejoratives for conservatives and Republicans is the word “extremist.” We are “radical,” we are “extreme,” we are wing-nuts on the outer fringes of society. One of the conservatives’ and Republicans’ most extreme policy positions, as the media insists to the public, are on abortion: we are against it. How extreme. There are unborn babies whose arms are being pulled Read more […]
