It’s All About the Culture
“A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.” – Samuel Adams. In the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary school | Read More »
The Youth Vote
President Obama did a phenomenal job of getting out the youth vote in 2008. Many conservatives and even some liberals were thinking that a repeat performance was next to impossible; however, he brought back the same young people as 2008 and added quite a few more. In the 2012 election, people aged 18-29 increased their total of the electorate and went for President Obama 67%-30% | Read More »
Closing Arguments from the Next Generation
America is buit on dreams. The pilgrims came to America on the Mayflower with the dream of religious liberty. The founders fought a Revolution with the dream of a free nation. A Civil War was fought with the dream of equality for all. The social turbulence of the 1960s was directed with the dream of ending racial segregation once and for all. “One Man’s Dream” | Read More »
Don’t Be a Victim
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” – Ronald Reagan President Reagan’s words are often cited by people on both sides of the aisle in their efforts to accomplish their ideals and goals for America. Today’s young | Read More »
9/11: Sacrifice, Remembrance, & Renewal
“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children.” – President George W. Bush. I can clearly remember September 11th, 2001. It | Read More »
My Thoughts on the RedState Gathering
Last weekend I attended the 4th annual RedState Gathering in Jacksonville, Florida, with some of the most prominent conservative leaders in the country. Most of us are in this fight for the same reason– we love this country and aren’t willing to let her fail because of irresponsible policies instituted by our current government. Often as I follow the events happening today I am concerned | Read More »
Two American Patriots
I had the opportunity to meet one of my heroes in politics while I was in Washington D.C. last week and in the process found another. I’ve admired Congressman Darrell Issa for a long time. As Chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee I watch him weed out unnecessary government programs and seek to abolish them. I had the privilege of meeting him, and | Read More »
Not Our War to Fight
There is a fork in the road coming in regard to the conflict in Syria. Soon we will be forced to decide whether we will enter the conflict stay out of it and protect our interests here at home. If we choose the former, we then have another choice: Do we join the side that has the support of Iran and Russia (neither of whom | Read More »
Learning the Meaning of “E Pluribus Unum”
I thought I understood the phrase that was our unofficial national motto for one-hundred-seventy-four years until I actually saw it in action and realized that there was much more I hadn’t yet appreciated. Rather than thinking of “E pluribus unum” as merely a noun, for the first time I witnessed it as a verb. Last week, while in our nation’s capitol, I saw the truth that makes | Read More »
U.S. Attorney Investigating Two Important Cases
“Remember, it was deny, delay, and accuse.” Chairman Darrell Issa has hit the nail on the head countless times while investigating Operation Fast & Furious. The House voted on both criminal and civil contempt charges against Attorney General Eric Holder due to his refusal to produce documents pertaining to correspondence between high-level officials regarding how to respond to the Fast & Furious investigation. The criminal | Read More »
UPDATED Washington D.C. or Bust!
On Sunday I leave for my first trip to Washington, D.C.! I’ll act like a tourist/nerd/history geek and see everything I possibly can; but I’ve also been privileged to schedule meetings with some top Conservatives while I’m there and I’ll be attending one of the best Conservative conferences of the summer. Here are a few of the things I’ll be doing in D.C.: My two | Read More »
The “Third” Party We Need (It’s Not What You’re Thinking)
American politics is traditionally dominated by the constant battles between Republicans and Democrats, and as of late is being characterized by the failure of both sides to get things done. Because of this, I think we do need a third party. Not a third party like the Libertarians and “Green” Party; not a party that necessarily runs candidates for office with their letter following their | Read More »
“The Sheriff Without a Gun”
“When a man carries a gun all the time, the respect he thinks he’s getting might really be fear. So I don’t carry a gun because I don’t want the people of Mayberry to fear a gun. I’d rather they respect me.” One of my favorite TV shows is The Andy Griffith Show. When I heard of Andy Griffith’s death on the eve of Independence | Read More »
July 5th & Every Day After
Last night after the pool and fireworks, I watched Coming Home with my family and realized that the message behind Independence Day goes so much further than July 4th. That’s only one day a year that we set aside to commemorate the tremendous pride we have in our country– but for military families, the message their loved ones fight for overseas are prominent in their | Read More »
Your Country Needs You!
*The Supreme Court’s ruling on ObamaCare was definitely not what Conservatives were hoping for. ObamaCare is unconstitutional and even morally wrong in many of its provisions, and even though our Court has ruled it constitutional, I don’t believe it is beneficial if we continue to bask in the disappointment we felt on Thursday (and still feel today). I say this because we have no way | Read More »
[VIDEO] Racism Nonexistent in Fast & Furious
Al Sharpton and other Democrats are denying that AG Eric Holder did anything wrong in connection with the failed Operation Fast & Furious, and are instead suggesting that the investigation is racially motivated. These claims of racism are ridiculous, and this is why I feel that way:
ObamaCare: It’s Not a Tax…Oh Wait, It’s a Tax
This morning the Supreme Court ruled that ObamaCare, in its entirety, is indeed constitutional. The individual mandate was ruled constitutional by a 5-4 vote, with Chief Justice John Roberts the swing vote; however, it was ruled constitutional as a tax, not a “mandate”, which clearly goes against what President Obama tried to sell the American people. I do feel that this was a loss not | Read More »
Bringing Faith Back!
It’s no secret that our Founders held a deep respect for God; a majority of them were committed Christians and those who were not still believed in a Higher Power. There are countless quotes by these Founders that stress the emphasis they put on the role of faith in society. Now, two hundred years later, it seems we as a people have switched to the | Read More »
A New Level of Arrogance
Brian Terry’s family deserves answers. The American people deserve answers. Operation Fast & Furious gave U.S. weapons to drug cartels in Mexico; somehow this was justified because this way, we would “know where the guns were.” They were going to acquire weapons anyway, so someone inside some federal agency (we still don’t know which) got this program approved and running. Now, eighteen months after the | Read More »
No to Intervening in Another Proxy War
The violence in Syria is heating up, and lawmakers are taking positions on both sides of the conflict; some believe we should intervene for the sake of the Syrian people, who are being brutally murdered by the hundreds each day, while others adamantly believe that we should stay out of the conflict. I’m inclined to agree with the latter; Assad’s regime is supported by Russia | Read More »
[POLL] Should anyone be given amnesty?
Given President Obama’s recent decision to once again overlook the checks and balances here in America, what do you think: Should amnesty be granted to certain people, or should everyone have to go through the same citizenship process? Should illegals who are minors or who meet “certain criteria” be granted amnesty?
Next Generation Voters Commercial!
Special thanks to Matthew Perdie for producing it!
“When The Mission is Complete.”
What do you think of when you see Old Glory? Do you see brave young soldiers fighting on battlefields; second-graders with hands on their hearts as they pledge allegiance to the flag; or the loving, prideful looks veterans give it every time they pass? All of these things are perfect depictions of the flag and the freedom it represents. “When the mission is complete” is | Read More »

The Legal Showdown Between Feds & Florida
Florida is a key state in every Presidential election; sometimes even the most important swing state, as we saw in the 2000 election when Florida ultimately decided the outcome. Now, a legal showdown is coming between the state of Florida and the Federal government. Why? Because Florida has a problem with allowing dead people and non-citizens to vote. Excuse me for only believing in voting | Read More »
