    Young Conservatives Creating A New Brand of Conservatism

    Today, I believe the Republican Party’s leaders (like Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Mia Love, Tim Scott, Susana Martinez, and Scott Walker) respect and embrace diversity within the conservative movement. Despite that, many of the GOP’s supporters do not feel the same way. Many of them shame anyone who isn’t a 100% conservative. They call them “cuckservatives” or “RINOs”. Thankfully, due to the youth conservative movement, | Read More »

    If Wisconsinites Want To Stop Trump, They Must Vote For Cruz

    If Wisconsinites Want To Stop Trump, They Must Vote For Cruz

    Ted Cruz, over the past five years, has led far-right conservatism in the U.S. Senate. It’s no secret that he’s one of the most conservative and Constitution-based politicians in the United States. For many who aren’t strong conservatives, casting a ballot for Ted Cruz in Tuesday’s Wisconsin primary seems like a bad idea. Despite that, there’s a case for voters from all political opinions to vote for | Read More »

    The GOP Is Struggling, But It’s Not Entirely Their Fault.

    If this election has proved anything, it has proved that the Republican Party is struggling with its supporters. The rise of Donald Trump (and even Ted Cruz) has shown many voters are frustrated with the party. While some Republicans have broken their campaign promises and have compromised their morals, the majority have not. First, conservative radio and TV pundits (nationally and locally) have driven voters | Read More »

    High Point University Fraternity To Help Wounded Veteran

    Big things are happening at High Point University. And no, I am not talking about their basketball team, which is in the NIT (National Invitational Tournament) for just the second time in school history. The Zeta Phi Chapter of Kappa Alpha Order, a fraternity at the university, has created an initiative to raise funds and purchase a Track Chair for a wounded veteran. The initiative is | Read More »

    A Young Conservative For Hillary? I Sure Hope Not.

    I’ve been a conservative activist for eight years, ever since I was 10 years old. I’ve campaigned for some of the most conservative politicians in America. I’ve written blogs for some of the most conservative websites. I’ve spoken at Tea Party rallies, CPAC, and many other conservative conferences. In short, I’m a strong conservative through and through. Yet, a couple days ago, I tweeted that | Read More »

    Millennial Gay Speaks Out About His Support of Conservatism

    ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON THEBLAZE:   Gay rights and same sex marriage are two of the most controversial and debated topics in society today. Unfortunately, that debate carries a lot of labeling. The media, the left and their activists love to brand the Democratic Party as the party for gays and gay rights. I know that’s not true. I was lucky enough to interview Drew Vanderford, a | Read More »

    School Choice Quietly Becoming Major Topic Without Mainstream Media Coverage

    ORIGINALLY POSTED ON WATCHDOG WIRE The simple and beneficial idea of school choice has quietly started to become a major topic in state and local governments across the nation. Not surprisingly, countless school districts are beginning to see the positive results that getting a better education brings, despite not being covered by the mainstream media. For example, a recent article by the Daily Signal reported that Florida | Read More »

    To Win in 2014, Unity is a Must Between the Republican Party and Tea Party

    ORIGINALLY POSTED ON THEBLAZE: Even though Liberals and establishment Republicans have heard their voices and understand their message, it’s easy to say that the Tea Party has had a rocky start to this year’s primary cycle. I am a strong conservative that tends to support Tea Party-leaning candidates and have given many speeches to Tea Party supporting groups. With that said, I’m sick of hearing | Read More »

    "God" Replaced With "Peace" In Pledge of Allegiance at Madison, Wisconsin High School

    Promoted from the diaries by Caleb. “One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” For the past few years, this line in the Pledge of Allegiance has caused an increasing amount of debate among Americans. Despite this debate, 85% of Americans still believe that “under God” should be kept in the Pledge, while only 8% do not. Forget the lawsuits, conflict, and | Read More »
