In spite of the ease with which the word “conservatism” is thrown about these days, most people who associate with the “conservative” movement are not really conservative at all. In reality, the so-called “conservative” movement is a predominantly (though not exclusively) neoconservative movement.

Contrary to what some neoconservatives would have us think, “neoconservatism” is not an insult, much less an “anti-Semitic” slur. The word, rather, refers to a distinct intellectual tradition—a point for which some neoconservatives, like its famed “godfather,” Irving Kristol, have argued at length.

Interesting thoughts regarding where the line is drawn on conservatism...read more.....

Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of a minor victory by the Mexican military  over the French during the late 1800s; that has now resulted in a decree by  which American students must reverse their shirts or face expulsion for  potentially “inciting racial violence.”  This disgusting restriction of the  First Amendment right of these students is a clear sign something is seriously  wrong in not just California, but in our country.

Our national experiment always worked because immigrants assimilated to the  culture those American patriots (some wearing white powdered wigs) helped create  when they went to war with the British and dared challenge King George III’s  tyranny.

Today, our national experiment is fragmenting because of decisions like the  one by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which basically stated: “The  court said fears of racial violence by students outraged over the American flag  displayed on the T-shirts outweighed the right guaranteed by the  Constitution.”  Call me crazy (and I’m sure many of you do), but in this  situation I’m not sure what is worse: an American court of appeals blatantly  infringing upon the First Amendment rights of American citizens or immigrants,  who have voluntarily chosen to reside in this country, being incited to violence  by the mere appearance of its flag.

So to put this into the appalling perspective it deserves, because some  American kids dared to wear American flag shirts on Cinco de Mayo, the court  declared the fear of racial violence outweighed the right guaranteed by the  Constitution.

What was the point of the American Revolution if students in this country  will be told they can’t wear the flag of their country on their shirt, because  it might offend and create racial blowback/violence?

The University of North Carolina (UNC) is one of the top institutions of higher learning in the South.  Not surprisingly, this means the black male student population is low, and a high proportion of what “diversity” there is functions as “student-athletes” on the football or basketball team.

Comments on Power

If we are going to make a difference then we need to understand a little about power, how to get it and how to use it.  For example, let's be honest, how much more attention would you be giving this article if I was to tell you I am a millionaire twenty times over and that I head a group of conservatives numbering in the thousands?  The truth of the matter is that you and I individually really don't matter except under certain conditions and those conditions generally have to do with how much influence we have over other people. 

If we want to make a difference here and now then we have to remember that:

!.  Money is power.

2. Controlling Votes (plural) is power.

3. Force is power.

4. Commitment is power.

5. Action is power.

You and I are nothing without each other.  Think about it.

What Are Any Of Us Doing Here?

I've been blogging on and off for a while and the one thing I feel I can say without contradiction is that there are a lot more of us who are willing to share our opinions than there are willing to take any other kind of concrete action. 

I want your help.  I'll tell you why.  I believe we want the same things and yet we seem unable to hook up and actually make any difference.  Give me, and yourself, a chance.

I will supply the history, the foundation on which our principles rest, what's really going on behind the curtain, Conservative values in context, and what we can do together to make a difference in the future.  Don't you want to do more than call the other side names?

Join my group, and let's get started.  I plan on the next Blog Post addressing the subject of power.

Thank you.


ps.  I will be sending many of you friend requests, please consider accepting.
