Old Glory

As we approach July 4th let us not forget our national heritage. Our guiding principals over the past two hundred and thirty three years of indiviual liberty, limited government, self reliance, competitive capitalism, and a belief that as Americans we can accomplish anything we put our minds to. In these days of seemingly constant drift toward a progressive collectivist society, all freedom loving Americans who hold up the individual over the tyranny of the progressive collective state must remain vigilant and steadfast in their opposition to the forces of those intent on turning the United States of America into a collectivist state.

A Conservative Manifesto (revised 11/25/15) (1/24/17)

I consider the principles of true, independent conservatism to be the belief in: 1) Limited effective government with authority granted to it as enumerated in our Constitution 2) A true free market capitalist economy, that is to say a market regulated to insure honest competition. For a market to be free it must be regulated. 3) A judiciary (Supreme Court) that interprets law from a constitutionalist prospective. 4) A legislative branch that recognizes their responsibility is to the people and not their own corrupt political interests or those of any special interest group. 5) A government that recognizes the rights of the individual as delineated in our Bill of Rights and the Constitution. 6) A government that views its mandate to tax the citizenry as limited to funding the proper role of government. Which includes providing for the national defense and the general welfare of the nation. 7) A government that recognizes the value of borders, language, and culture and ins


About the Author: My passions? Philosophy, politics and the quaint notion that we all deserve to be free from oppressive government. My strongest beliefs? That government should be limited, that individuals are more important than the collective, that capitalism is the only effective way to motivate people and create wealth, and liberty carries with it a great responsibility.

Is The End of My Country's Greatness Near?

New Essays Will Occasionally Be Posted On This Page June 2016 “Is The End of My Country’s Greatness Near” is a question I contemplated and subsequently wrote an essay on back in 2009. I ask the very same question today, almost nine years later. It troubles me more now than it did in2009. But it is not because the object and subject of my concern, Barack Hussein Obama and socialism has destroyed America, rather it is because the conservatism I had always believed in has been responsible for bringing to political life the narcissistic demagogue and megalomaniac Donald J. Trump. Just to be very clear. I have not wavered from my core principles, a conservatism that is far removed from today’s Evangelical, Neocon, authoritarian, oligarchical, and board room conservatism. This weblog supports a conservatism that is based on constitutional principles, the belief that all people have equal right to opportunity, that race, ethnicity, or religion should not be a barrier in anyway, that div
