Parenting Toward Capitalism

In a century already plagued by stories of “crony capitalism” like Halliburton and Solyndra, the concept of capitalism is really getting a bad rap. I decided long ago that the liberal indoctrination of my children through mainstream media would not happen. So, when I see an opportunity to parent them away from destructive messages and… Read More »

Sarah Palin’s Heart and Soul – True Conservative American Convention

The recent RNC Convention in Tampa, Florida was missing one of its most essential conservative ingredients to showcase the essence of the conservative 2010 Republican comeback story.  That comeback was largely due to the grassroots organizing tenacity of Sarah Palin.  Whatever the rationale used by the RNC or Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s campaign strategists… Read More »

Republican Party Treachery Rises Again in Tampa

Republican Party Treachery Rises Again in Tampa Republican and Democrat: Two Wings of the Same Vulture The choice of Paul Ryan as the Republican Vice-Presidential candidate almost had me convinced to vote for Mitt Romney in November but once again the Republican Party blew a chance to show me they are above the Democrat Party… Read More »

Dang! I Missed Todd Akin’s Keynote Address

Life for a Comcast customer can be so frustrating. I’ve just gone 10 rounds with my DVR and the cable guide’s “search” malfunction. And I sit here in abject defeat. My goal was to program it so I wouldn’t miss Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin’s keynote speech at the Republican Convention. After all, this man… Read More »

Marco Rubio RNC Speech

Remarks prepared by the Republican National Convention In 1980, I watched my first Republican Convention with my grandfather. He was born to a farming family in rural Cuba. Childhood polio left him permanently disabled. Because he couldn’t work the farm, his family sent him to school, and he became the only one in the family… Read More »

GOP Adopts 95% of the ‘Freedom Platform’

While the Republican Party and the Tea Party are still two vastly different factions, the Republicans Party is beginning to accept some of the grassroots ideals of the Tea Party. For the first time the Republican Party is accepting official party planks from grassroots organizations. Last week, it was released that the GOP had accepted… Read More »

America Needs the Tea Party More Than America Needs the GOP

Explaining his endorsement of the current White House occupant on the administration’s infrastructure spending, healthcare reform, and position on abortion, Florida’s former Republican Governor Charlie Crist endorsed him on the eve of the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa. Crist has betrayed American taxpayers before.  He supported the $787 billion “stimulus” boondoggle, which did little… Read More »

(Trailer of 2016: Obama’s America by Dinesh D’Souza based on his books “Obama’s America, Unmaking the American Dream” and “The Roots of Obama’s Rage”.) Dinesh D’Souza’s new movie 2016: Obama’s America opened in local theaters here in my home town of Rochester, Minnesota and was practically sold out its first night.

The Republican Party: The Party of Pathetic Progressive Cowards

I have been listening to the cacophony of cowardly Republicans jumping all over Congressman Todd Akin of Missouri concerning his comments about rape and abortion a few days ago.  I understand that what he said was ill-advised but he tried to answer a very tough question instead of dodging it as most politicians would do. … Read More »

The Top Ten Reasons Why Socialism is Wrong

1. Marx’s Labor Theory of Value, adapted from Ricardo, is wrong. Work is not exploitation and profit is not theft. (For more on this subject see Schumpeter’s Capitalism, Socialism, and Democracy.) 2. Historical Materialism begs the question of human agency. It is unexplained how socialists come to have consciousness that is “authentic,” while capitalists have… Read More »

Debunking 5 Paul Ryan Myths

When Mitt Romney chose Rep. Paul Ryan to be his running mate nine days ago, he forced Democrats to engage in serious intellectual debate in the coming weeks and months, rather than demagoguing which has been the main practice of the Obama/Biden campaign as of yet. Well, that’s what one would have thought, because, well,… Read More »

Harvard Professor Niall Ferguson: Obama’s Gotta Go

Harvard Professor Niall Ferguson has penned a scathing piece in Newsweek arguing that Obama’s “gotta go.” It won’t be easy for the mainstream press to dismiss Ferguson’s op-ed like they would most others because the messenger happens to be an accomplished historian and can frame America’s decline under Obama in world historical terms. By now,… Read More »

Where Are America’s Heroes?

America faces attacks upon its economic well-being, its historic values, principles and traditions, the very moral fabric of its society and the supreme law of the land, the United States Constitution. The enemy attacks from within the American education system, in movies, on television, in newspapers, magazines and from within local, state and federal government.… Read More »

Brandon Raub: Victim of Tyranny in America

Brandon Raub: Victim of Tyranny in America  The End of Liberty is Near I find the current situation in our nation both frightening and ironic.  The frightening part took a more serious turn a few days ago.  On Thursday August 16, 2012, former Marine Corp member Brandon Raub, decorated for valor in both Iraq and… Read More »
