Rewriting History

I understand that the victors often get to write the history, but the attempts to completely rewrite what happened this election will lead to everyone learning the wrong lessons. I, and many others, predicted on countless occasions that Trump would lose. In fact, I would often point out that Hillary managed to find the one … Continue reading


#NeverTrump links: Trump is not a conservative: How could I think the guy who opposes free trade, entitlement reform, due process, free speech, property rights etc. isn't a conservative? — (((AG))) (@AG_Conservative) July 2, 2016 Hillary vs. Trump: Response to people claiming that not supporting Trump = voting for Hillary: Exactly. Trump supporters … Continue reading

The Establishment’s Desperate Duo Attacks Rubio

Let’s look at yesterday’s attacks against Rubio by the establishment’s desperate duo (Jeb Bush and Chris Christie): First, they attacked Rubio for being too pro-life. Forgetting about the fact that Christie lied about Rubio’s position during his attacks, who thought this was a smart criticism in a Republican primary? The attacks ended up causing the … Continue reading

The Truth about Conservative Talk Radio

When I first got on Twitter, I was a big fan of conservative Talk Radio. I knew several people who became huge advocates for conservatism only after listening to Rush Limbaugh. I doubt there were many converts from Hannity or Levin (despite L & T being one of my favorite books), but I assumed it was … Continue reading


Update: Adding this link at the top because it makes an important point. The “poison pill” defense of Cruz (aside from being an admission that he was lying to voters in 2013) is completely disproven by the fact that Cruz continued to talk about how his amendment allowed for legal status and how it was … Continue reading

Immigration Questions for Ted Cruz and Supporter

As someone who has spent a lot of time studying immigration policy proposals, I like to think I know where all of the candidates stand on various related issues. I believe I know where Ted Cruz stands, but his recent comments and actions have been contrary to where I believe he stands. I am hoping … Continue reading

The truth about immigration reform and “amnesty”

It’s time to talk about “amnesty” because a portion of conservatives are claiming this is a defining issue and using it to justify their support for a far-left candidate (Donald Trump). Let’s address a few things before a full discussion of amnesty: Every Republican currently in the race supports doing border security first. The differences … Continue reading

Why am I so critical of Rand Paul as a potential nominee?

Some people have noticed and asked me why I am so aggressively critical of Rand Paul as a potential candidate, and I think it’s only fair that I give an explanation. I’ve made it no secret that I have preferred candidates in this race, but that really isn’t the reason I am so actively interested … Continue reading

On Senator Cruz’s Point of Order and The Constitution

It seems some people do need to read up on the Constitution, but it is not the Republicans that voted no last night. The real problem is that there seems to be a large contingent in the Conservative blogosphere that seeks every opportunity to be outraged at the GOP to the point that they don’t bother to find out why these Senators voted no or what the specifics of the votes were. I believe this attitude is not helpful in advancing conservatism or getting to the truth. If we are going to assert that the Constitution is important to us going forward, we should make sure we are invoking it correctly when criticizing the actions of others.

On History, Race, and the Mythical Party Switch

The New York Times’ Nate Cohen had an interesting article yesterday looking at the decline of Democrats in the South. A lot of liberals predictably reacted to the article by assuming it confirms a popular historical myth among Democrats that the parties switched places in the 1960’s and Republicans have dominated the South since due … Continue reading
