High Schoolers Taught ‘There’s a Whole World Full of Different Genders’

Does the courage for the conservative message truly exist?
Like many conservatives on Redstate and other sites, I am motivated by the calls and enthusiasm for the return to conservative principles. The little voice in my head wonders if conservatives are ready for hard choices and positions this will require. Regardless of the election cycle, we will always have Republicans repeating the mantra of calling for fiscal responsibility, low taxes and limited government. Every | Read More »
