I don’t envy Julia!
Whoever Julia really is, she must be feeling pretty special (if she’s an Obama supporter; because she got turned into a faceless surrogate for the campaign). The political world has been captivated by her for the past few days. Apparently, all of us should strive to be just like this Julia or we’re somehow not thinking straight– oh, and we don’t care about the poor. | Read More »
The American Genocide
You don’t often hear the words “American” and “genocide” in the same sentence, do you? The genocide during the Holocaust is well known, and genocide is a crime against humanity. On September 11, 2001, Americans were killed on our own soil. However, there is a genocide going on within the borders of the United States that too many are overlooking– it is happening through abortion. | Read More »
The Case for a Strong Congress
I think many Americans have been focusing on an issue this primary season that, although very important, has not been the core issue that should have dominated our thinking. Electability has been a huge argument for Mitt Romney as he battled his Republican challengers; Romney is more electable, pundits would say, but Santorum has real convictions. Which would you rather have? Apparently, electability won out | Read More »
What is Conservatism? [Part 2]
Conservatism: The disposition to preserve or restore what is established and traditional and to limit change (via Dictionary.com). Another definition comes from the World English Dictionary: A political philosophy advocating the preservation of the best of the established order in society and opposing radical change (also at Dictionary.com). What does this have to do with anything? Well, the very definitions of conservatism are the exact | Read More »

[POLL] VP Choice!
Who should be the #2 on the ticket? I’ve listed as options most of the names I’ve heard even just thrown around. If you choose “Other” then comment with who your choice would be! Who should Romney choose for VP?
What is Conservatism? [Part 1]
Of course, different people have different definitions of it. With all the talk about finding a “conservative” candidate in 2012 and one who will represent our “conservative” values, I started thinking about what conservatism actually is. Do most folks know the meaning of it, or is it simply a word used to echo thoughts that they themselves have yet to fully grasp? I believe that | Read More »
This is the first election cycle that I have been following since its beginning, and in the process both of the Republican candidates I have supported have dropped out. I supported Rick Perry from the time he entered the race until he left it; I then supported Rick Santorum. I met Senator Santorum on the campaign trail and after speaking with him I was wishing | Read More »
Senator Rick Santorum has suspended his Presidential campaign. His reasons were not specifically stated, but it is clear that his family was a large part of his decision. With little Bella just coming home from the hospital last night and still having pneumonia, it’s obvious that his family needs him right now. I have to admire his decision to put his family above politics, but | Read More »
Can you imagine what that first Easter morning must have been like? After three days of mourning Jesus’ death, his disciples and friends found that he was in fact alive and well. The only evidences of His death were the nail-scars on His body and the blood-stained graveclothes lying in the tomb. This is the real meaning of Easter: Jesus’ sacrifice to give us salvation | Read More »
