v Adulthood: We cannot reasonably define an adult by age. Some people are adults much later in life than others; some never become adults; some are adults early in their teens. Any person who is capable and prepared to care for himself or herself, support himself or herself, does not ask for charity is an adult regardless of age. Yes, this means that | Read More »

Sarah Palin in the eye of the beholder
Since the debut of SarahPAC yesterday, there’s been renewed speculation that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin intends to make a run for the White House, perhaps as early as 2012. If such a run is indeed in the cards, where will the pundits place her on the political spectrum? The answer to that question depends on which pundit you choose to believe.
“Right to life” vs. “License to kill”: A Libertarian Case for the Pro-Life Position
Promoted to the front by Erick based on a recommendation from several readers. The abortion issue involves vast deeps of confusion about the nature of rights, freedom and the lack thereof, choice, license, responsibilities, and obligations. In this essay I attempt to cut away all the confusion to get to the heart of things from a classical liberal approach. We hold these Truths to be | Read More »
Social Conservatism is Conservatism
The Only Effective Strategy: Social Conservatism is Conservatism Every member of Redstate understands what is at stake – we are fighting for the very soul of this nation. Debates between factions of Right leaning groups are healthy. They can also destroy a much needed and previously strong coalition. Believe me our nation has been systematically deconstructed by her enemies within and without – and if | Read More »
Whither the Libertarians?
I read in the Libertarian magazine Reason, that Libertarians were expected to vote for Obama by a greater than 6-4 margin. When I worked on my first republican campaign in 1988 (JKFP) most of my colleagues were self described small government libertarians. It strikes me as a sad state of affairs when our party cannot win the vote of this group. The question is why? | Read More »
Third Parties in Swing States Make a Difference, So Don’t Do It!
I understand why some folks voted Libertarian. I was confronted this year with a US House race (FL-15) where a qualified independent candidate was running. I feared that the Democrat Dr. Blythe, a Planned Parenthood supporter, could win without my vote for the GOP Posey (who won). Consider these cases from this 2008 election yesterday: If 90% of those 29,000 who voted for Barr (L) | Read More »
What is conservatism?
The true definition of a philosophy is ultimately determined by the consensus of the intellectuals that help to shape that philosophy. Political philosophies are one of the most open and mailable schools of thought one can imagine. At any given moment, the definition of conservatism is being debated by thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of scholars, politicians, comities, constituencies, and activists. The fact that | Read More »

Libertarians to Blame for the Sub Prime Crisis? Not So Much …
Normally, I don’t mind someone making themselves look silly. The entertainment value is high and I’m on a budget so I find my entertainment where I can. But when someone both looks silly and tries to drag me into the entertainment by association, if I have the time I’m generally disposed to comment. Which brings me to Russ McBee’s post ‘Slapped by the Invisible Hand’ | Read More »
The fundamental difference between Mcain and Obama
I am relatively new to posting so bear with me on this. From what I have been seeing and hearing lately from both camps is a stark difference, and because of that difference, there is only one way I can vote. In one of my jobs I was once told to, “Lead, follow, or get out of the &#ing way.” That quote is driving my | Read More »
Introduction from a moderate Libertarian & secular Humanist
Hello, I am Adam Theo (just “Theo” to most), a moderate Libertarian who never votes for his own party because they are a bunch of lunatics — I mix between the two main parties happily, depending on the issue. I am a calm and optimistic person who likes friendly debates.
