    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

    You may have heard that the House voted to extend the plastic gun ban. Information on the bill from that article: The 1988 Undetectable Firearms Act was enacted under President Reagan and reauthorized under Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush. It is scheduled to sunset Dec. 9, the same day the Senate returns from a two-week Thanksgiving break. If the law expires, Congress can fix | Read More »

    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 »

    Virginia RedStaters: You Can Effect The Outcomes Of 3 Elections Tomorrow

    VIRGINIA REDSTATERS! Tomorrow you have the opportunity to have a profound effect in the outcomes of three elections at the minimum: 1-The Virginia gubernatorial race. Obviously, if Ken Cuccinelli wins, Republicans will retain the governorship and will gain a substantial upgrade over Bob McDonnell. If Terry McAullife wins, a corporatist Democrat will take over and succeed in bringing liberalism one step further down south. 2-The | Read More »

    Robert Sarvis Is Running As A Centrist, Not A Libertarian

    I consider myself a conservative-libertarian. Conservative describes my way of life and worldview, while libertarian describes my view on the role of government. Robert Sarvis is certainly not conservative in any sense. I don’t really consider him a libertarian either. Yes, he is the Libertarian Party (LP) candidate, but they often put up unprincipled candidates just like the Republican party does. See: Bob Barr, Gary | Read More »

    Putting Ted Cruz Birtherism To Rest

    There have been many questions regarding the Presidential eligibility of Ted Cruz. They must be answered. I trust this diary is not in violation of the site prohibition on promoting Obama-birther theories. Imagine for a moment you are a young woman, say 25. You and your husband are out of college and have bright futures ahead of yourself. You decide you want to procreate and | Read More »


    Tom Cotton Caves On Budget Deal

    I’ve mentioned in a previous diary about the correlation that being a super-hawk has with a disrespect for civil liberties and disregard for spending prudence. Look no further than John McCain and Lindsey Graham. It was for this reason I declined to support brand-new Rep. Tom Cotton for Senate. It turns out he didn’t wait to get to the Senate to demonstrate a lack of | Read More »
