The Five Best Right-wing Christian TV Shows of All Time?

By right-wing Christian TV shows I do not mean shows that are explicitly conservative or Christian. I mean shows that will be most appreciated by such people. Nick Gillespie and Meredith Bragg at Reason.com have posted about “The Five Best Libertarian TV Shows Ever. These shows are not supposed to be explicitly Libertarian (I’m pretty sure House of Cards would never qualify), but they are shows that Libertarians should appreciate and find rewarding to them as Libertarians.

Conservatives Push Liberals Aside, Finally

Liberals’  anti-conservative agenda just isn’t as sexy as it used to be when President Obama first came into office. In fact, across this country there finally are signs that conservatives are tired of being pushed around and are at last ready to push back. Earlier this month, the nation was treated to the Million Muslim March on the anniversary of 9/11. A few years ago under Obama, or even under Bush, such an insulting event might have attracted a considerable crowd of supporters. Instead, Read more […]

Unlimited Power and Absolute Corruption

Power is a familiar topic with conservative writers and thinkers. In 1944, Ludwig von Mises published his book, Bureaucracy, which may very well be considered the authoritative work on the (in)effectiveness of centralized power.

The Real Conservative Party?

Right on cue, Thomas Friedman, over at the New York Times, has written his most recent column on the need for a “real conservative party.” This idea sounds pretty good until you begin to understand what Friedman, centrist that he is, is actually talking about. To him, a real conservative is one who is not necessarily opposed to big government so long as it is serving what he calls “the four great issues of our day”: 1) budget and debt, 2) globalization and education, 3) energy and climate, Read more […]

In Nevada, ‘None’ is not an option

A United States District Judge has ruled against Nevada’s long-standing tradition of adding “None of the above” to voting ballots. While supporters see this option as giving voice to the “vote of no confidence,” which many voters believe needs to be expressed, Judge Robert Jones saw it as being unconstitutional, since votes for “None” don’t count toward actually determining a winner. Judge Jones made the right decision, although I wouldn’t go so far as to label it “unconstitutional.” Every Read more […]
