A Strategic Realignment Of Conservative Priorities

We don’t know for sure if Charles Darwin actually said, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change,” but whether he said it or not, it’s an insightful observation that transcends the context of natural selection. It is supremely relevant in this day and age of a Republican Party and conservative movement both in a state of flux after Donald Trump’s ascension to the presidency. The RINOs in congress and various think tanks and the Never Trumpers are enormously outnumbered by the… Keep Reading

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

You’re more than likely familiar with Aesop’s brief fable of a mouse and a lion. If you’ve lived under a rock your whole life I’ll bring you up to speed: A mouse convinces a lion to spare his life in exchange for the promise of a future favor. Cue the future. The lion finds himself trapped in a hunter’s net and the mouse responds to his roar and saves him from the net. It’s a quaint story with a timeless message, that is, a kindness is never wasted. It’s a nice thought but we don’t live in a fable, we… Keep Reading

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is angry yet again at the conniving nature of his own political party. Congressional Republicans unveiled their omnibus spending bill this week, which appropriates over $1 trillion dollars in new spending. This gives a huge political victory to the Democrats, Paul claimed in his Breitbart op/ed published Tuesday. “You’ll see it in the news as an “Omnibus spending bill,” when it should really be called “the Status Quo Protection Act.” President Hillary Clinton would have been proud of this bill,” Paul said. “It tosses out campaign promises as it continues to fund the military industrial complex and… Keep Reading

The Beast From Beyond Reality

The following thought is certainly not original with me, but regardless of who expressed it first, it bears repeating: Conservatives craft policy based on the world as it is, and liberals craft policy based on how they believe the world should be. Said another way, the former seeks to adapt to the confines of reality, the latter is completely out of touch with it. This dichotomy can be traced back to the early twentieth century when the nascent progressive movement was in the wicked thrall of the eugenics craze. Lead by villains such as Margaret Sanger, these genetic elitists believed… Keep Reading
