Freedom vs. The Welfare State

The average American college student is too young to even have been born when the Soviet Union was still around. An entire generation has grown up since the Cold War ended. They have put a big distance of time between us and the Soviet Union, the most formidable threat to freedom the world has ever […]

The Republican Party Must Restore its Legacy of Expanding Freedom

The Republican Party must reclaim its mantle as the party that expands freedom. The GOP has a deep history of promoting liberty, both at home and abroad, and it must draw on this legacy to gain moral strength and clarity of vision. The party should thus distinguish itself from the progressive Democrat Party if it […]

The State of Georgia’s Sharia-Friendly Curriculum.

Why is the practice of Sharia law being promoted in Georgia Schools? A father in Georgia who took the time to look through his 7th grade daughter’s homework was shocked to find that polygamy was encouraged and spoken highly of in a school assignment that was supposed to correlate to school uniforms and dress code. Here […]

Group Pushes to Limit Steak Consumption

A group founded on dietary safety and health has started a new campaign against steak.  The group isn’t asking for an outright banning of steak by the FDA, but would support the idea. Jenna Smith-Johnson from the group commented that they aren’t trying to keep people from eating beef, just trying to limit its availability. […]

Individual Liberties and the Slippery Slope

Ah, the “slippery slope” metaphor.  Over-used, sometimes misused and rarely is it effectively used – I hope I don’t manage to make those same mistakes. Individual liberties were of prime concern to the founding fathers.  The Constitution makes it difficult for the government to infringe upon the rights of the individual and progressives find this […]

An American Gives Thanks

Perhaps this is just one of those “obligatory” be thankful posts as we near Thanksgiving.  I’ve not written one before and if I get flamed to heck for this one, may not write another.  Being thankful for our families, our health and food on the table is expected.  I am certainly thankful for those things […]

Why the NY Outdoor Smoking Ban Should Matter to Everyone

Years ago when the ban of smoking near entrances to building took hold, you were warned.  Either help the smokers or you will be next. Am I advocating smoking?  Of course not.  But as a true Conservative, the freedoms of the individual are central to my decision making processes.  I certainly agree that they don’t […]

Liberty Lost – Variations on a Theme

This week, the Conservative Daily News team decided to focus on liberty.  With the 8-28 Restoring Honor rally this weekend, it seems logical that we would focus on a foundational principle of our republic – individual freedom. “A free people [claim] their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift […]

Freedoms and Liberties: Under Constant Attack

The Decleration of Independence reads: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers […]

Obama’s no Leader – He’s just a Dictator Wannabe

Barack Hussein Obama’s psyche is reminiscent of Warden Samuel Norton in the Shawshank Redemption, arguably one of the finest movies ever made. You remember the scene, don’t you? Andy Dufresne has just arrived at Shawshank. He and the other new prisoners are marched, chain-gang style, into the prison and met by Warden Norton. Just before disappearing […]
