I’m Leaving the Republican Party

I’m Leaving the Republican Party

I’m officially leaving the Republican Party. Or rather, as cliché as it sounds, they’ve officially left me. The reason is pretty straight forward: they’ve finally stopped pretending to care about conservative principles and values. The once-great party of Reagan has completely abandoned the principles upon which it used to stand. The nomination of Donald Trump, a vulgar and know-nothing Leftist, nearly pushed me out fully and forced me to abstain from voting for either major-party presidential candidate for the first…

Trumpism is Not Compatible with Small Government

Trumpism is Not Compatible with Small Government

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last three months, let me fill you in briefly as to what’s been happening. With the exception of the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, the actions of the Trump Administration have been a mixture of good, bad, and seemingly good but actually bad. My greatest concerns entering this new regime are beginning to come to fruition: Trumpism, whatever it means each day, is beginning to replace the…

Is there a Common Ground in American Politics?

Is there a Common Ground in American Politics?

-Guest Contributor: Jesse Saywell As a child, I had many dreams for my life. At first, I wanted to be a farmer. Then, I thought I’d be a police officer or serve our country in the Navy. I pictured myself a pop singer, a lawyer, a journalist, an actor, and even President of the United States. Never once did I dream that at twenty-four years of age I’d be a socialist, atheist, progressive who is also writing a piece for…

The Violent Left is in Denial

The Violent Left is in Denial

We millennials have finally crossed the threshold  as a generation, like many generations before us, wherein the political left is willing to justify its worldview and its half-truths with violence. The riots at UC Berkeley and the violent portions of the anti-Trump inauguration protests are not by themselves a threat to the stability of the United States. However, it is disconcerting that the mediasphere,  including a cacophony of histrionic voices on social media from everyday garden-variety leftists, has  already begun…

Left, Right, or Center: We Should All Fight the Deep State

Yes, Students are More Important Than Teachers

Yes, Students are More Important Than Teachers

At the change of classes just before 1 o’clock yesterday, there was a collective wailing and gnashing of teeth at the public school in which I teach.  Teachers gathered outside their rooms to bemoan the death of the education system, and plan for what they are all going to do when they lose their jobs.  This was, of course, because Betsy DeVos was confirmed as Education Secretary by the Senate.  Loud, angry comments rang throughout the hallways.  Teachers told their students…

Alternative Facts: The “Pro-Choice” Argument

Why Conservatism Is On The Rise (And Will Continue to Grow)

As we swear in our new president amid protests and bellyaching, there are many questions about where this is all going to lead us.  No one would deny that the majority of people across America, and across the world for that matter, woke up shocked the day after Election Day 2016.  Even Conservatives who kept the faith, were not willing to bet the farm on a Trump victory.  So how did Conservatism withstand the year-long onslaught from the left, and…
