Liberal Universalism

1 > 50 While liberals would have you believe their universalism is the child of wholly benevolent aspirations, there is a good practical reason they oppose States Rights: they hate competition. One example is Right to Work laws. Liberal supporters of unions claim to be against RTW because they’re looking out for the little guy, …

Keeping It Together

Mr President? Ron Paul won his second consecutive CPAC presidential straw poll this past weekend and already various news outlets and personal acquaintances of mine are harping about the fact that it does not matter. Apparently the only reason the CPAC presidential straw poll might matter is if it is a good indicator of who …

Rand Paul’s Point

Rand Paul was on Morning Joe today and made the point that $500bn is the figure you reach if you’re just getting serious about the current federal debt crisis. This is a deft move since most people who liked the plan have been saying, “Well, I know it’s a lot, but you have to do …

A Real Man

A real man is antiwar. A real man understands that being antiwar is an absolute.  He knows that when he is truly on the defensive, he does not relish in conflict or the extermination of his enemy.  He has only one thing in his mind:  the end to conflict. A real man knows the possession …

Liberals, Libertarians, and Civil Rights

The Rand Paul/Rachel Maddow interview is part of this liberal exposition. It is a form of political theatre that mimics a true inquiry into someone’s opinion on a controversial issue. Instead, it was a way for Maddow to discredit libertarianism now that everyone knows libertarians are a growing force in the political arena. If there’s one group of people that threaten the liberal agenda more than republicans, it’s libertarians.
