    Marco Rubio Betrays The Second Amendment

    In January, Marco Rubio stated that: “As a strong defender of the 2nd Amendment, I will oppose the President’s attempts to undermine Americans’ constitutional right to bear arms.” Yet a recent news headline read:  Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio Team Up on Undetectable Firearms Act There is no need to parse articles for Rubio’s position on that bill.

    Add Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn to the list of veteran Republican Senators who are facing strong challenges from the right.

    Two Moneybombs For Liberty

    I’d like to bring to the attention of RedState two fundraising marathons, or moneybombs, which are going on this month. The first is for North Carolina U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Greg Brannon. He has been endorsed by Rand Paul, Erick Erickson, and the National Association for Gun Rights.

    Tennessee State Senator Devises Plan To Circumvent 17th Amendment

    The 17th Amendment is a hallmark of progressivism, passed in 1913 along with other progressive legislation such as the 16th Amendment and the Federal Reserve. It abolished Article 1, Section 3, Clause 1 of the Constitution, which specific that: “The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, chosen by the Legislature thereof, for six Years; and each Senator | Read More »

    GOP Leadership Deceptively Passes Plastic Gun Ban

    RINO Brian Ellis Is Primarying Congressman Justin Amash

    One of the most conservative members of the House, Congressman Justin Amash, is being challenged by local businessman Brian Ellis, an establishment Republican. While Brian Ellis is framing himself as a “true conservative” who is trying to stop the “libertarians” like Amash, simple research shows that his campaign is being supported by big business monetarily and by liberal activists on social media. Having little to | Read More »

    Janet Yellen And Her Beliefs Should Be Rejected

    There has been some news lately about moderate resistance from Republicans to Federal Reserve Chairwoman nominee Janet Yellen, who is likely to be easily confirmed. Yellen predictably opposes Senator Rand Paul’s Audit the Fed bill, which currently has 27 co-sponsors. Opponents of the bill insist that enough auditing of lending practices and deliberations is done already. The reality is that the opponents of the bill | Read More »

    Tom Pauken For Governor Of Texas

    When Rick Perry announced that he would not be running for another term as Governor, most Republicans in Texas and around the nation automatically penciled in current Attorney General Greg Abbott as the natural replacement. On the surface, Abbott appears to be a good candidate. His personal story of overcoming his paralysis is inspiring, and he uses lots of language that conservatives are sure to | Read More »

    Conservatism And Libertarianism: No Need For Conflict

    This diary is inspired by a comment on aesthete ‘s post in which he rightly suggested that libertarians and conservatives ought to unite politically. I completely agree with the diary, although I would like to demonstrate that there is no reason why the two groups should be considered mutually exclusive. I am a conservative libertarian. This comment on the diary caught my eye and I want to respond | Read More »
