    With Scalia goes our natural rights to life, liberty and property. Obama will get to appoint, 10 months is too much time for the Senate to block a nomination. We will have a 5-4 legal positivist US Supreme Court. They believe the constitution is a living document and as such act as a quasi-legislative body “changing” with the passions and trends of the day, original intent is gone with the new appointment.

    I am a former wrestler and wrestling coach. Now I serve as an elected official. Wrestling taught me the fundamentals of life, leadership, responsibility and perseverance. I owe it to the sport of wrestling.

    This is a great read about wrestling.

    I am voting for the candidate that talks about the constitution, liberty and capitalism (not protectionism or crony-capitalism). My fellow conservatives are being duped by charisma, “feeeelings” and rhetoric. Conservatives used to be the party of principle and philosophy.

    I will change my party affiliation as an elected official from Republican to independent if this transpires (and if I am reelected in 2016).

    I don’t mean to be rude, just blunt and honest. She is a self-entitled, trust-fund baby who will kick and scream if she doesn’t get her way. Whoever made the decision to put baby-McCain on the show should be fired.

    I actually appreciate Sanders candor. He has come out as a socialist and has made no excuse for his views. I think he is fairly consistent, sure, he is consistently wrong & crazy but consistent nonetheless.

    Governing should be the arena of philosphers, Plato was correct on this one point. If consistency is the basis of philosophy then there is less guesswork in how our politicians vote. In comes our party system which is the basis for our elected views.

    I respect Sanders but his views are anti-liberty.

    The fluctuations in poll numbers makes me nervous. Conservatism is mostly a philosophy of logic, not one of feelings, soundbites and identity politics. Don’t get me wrong, I agree with Trump version 2.7. I just didn’t agree with the prior versions of Donald Trump, the ones that donated to Democrats like Charlie Wrangle, Chuck Schumer, Ted Kennedy and John Kerry. If you are in business for 40 years and only recently realize that you are donating to anti-business Dems — then you are a slow learner.

    You are wrong on a few points ModRepub.

    America is the greatest country in the world because of economic freedom – capitalism.

    Monopolies are a product of government intervention and not the free market. 97% of jobs in America were on the farm in the early 1900’s now it is only 1%. That is not because food is in less demand, it is because of innovation and technology – the true wealth creator.

    I applaud people (Walmart) for amassing huge sums of wealth. Policies I support are about individual liberty not manipulation, redistribution or socialism.

    The answer to your laundry list of questions is – let business figure out what is best for them not some empty-suit politician. Don’t empower the worst people in society to manage what they do not understand.

    Economics: the conservative/libertarian divider.

    No minimum wage. Politicians cannot manage their own budgets much less the economy.

    ModerateRepublican is absolutely wrong. He is still parroting 18th century protectionism. The 40 hour work week was a result of demand, not some law or union. It came from a corporate CEO – Henry Ford, thank you.

    P.S. The only real difference between a libertarian and conservative is consistency, economics and warfare. I believe we are on the same team with minor differences. Libertarians want liberty, conservatives want some liberty and government under their terms. :)

    The internet has made historians out of all of us. I am ignorant of our history, but you are not. You bring “feelings” into this like the progressive left. I look at it completely objective, I have no bone in this fight. Let’s move past the personal.

    The confederate flag was adopted and flown on behalf of the fight to preserve slavery. The United States flag was created out of the liberation of a foreign government. Atrocities are done under every flag.
    Question, would you support a German community in America flying a Nazi flag under the auspices of “traditionalism”?

    I say now, however, as I have all the while said, that on the territorial question — that is, the question of extending slavery under the national auspices, — I am inflexible. I am for no compromise which assists or permits the extension of the institution on soil owned by the nation.
    –February 1, 1861 Letter to William H. Seward

    I am naturally anti-slavery. If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong. I can not remember when I did not so think, and feel. And yet I have never understood that the Presidency conferred upon me an unrestricted right to act officially upon this judgment and feeling.
    –April 4, 1864 Letter to Albert Hodges

    P.S. Sharpton made his living as a race-baiting hypocrite.

  • [2] July 10, 2015 at 10:13pm


    I completely agree with you that the Democrat Party is guilty of everything you referenced and it should be thrown in their face again and again. :)

    Here is an analogy. I am prolife. Abortion is like slavery in which people treat a fetus like disposable chattel. I live in a country and in a state where this happens every day. You would never see me in a Margret Sanger t-shirt or flying a Planned Parenthood flag. Nor should people adopt, wave or pride themselves on symbols of slavery. Is your argument that the second confederate Navy Jack does not represent the confederacy? A confederacy which fought and killed to maintain the legal ownership of other men, women and children.

    No because ice cream doesn’t represent slavery. A flag is a symbolic representation that resembles a principle or an idea (don’t tread on me). Many flags represented the south during a bloody time in our history, the major disagreement was about the ownership of a fellow human being. It is a very simple question/answer. You think it is okay to fly one of the flags flown by the confederacy raised in the Civil War? We can agree to disagree. As I said, tradition is the bane of conservativism.

    Nice spin. I respect what you are saying but disagree with it completely. The Confederate Navy was the naval branch in the American Civil War and flew the Second Confederate Navy Jack, between 1863-1865. I believe it is a mistake for individuals to fly any of the flags flown by the confederacy.

    I do not understand my fellow conservatives or libertarians on this issue. Anything tied to slavery, be it Hitler, Mao, Kim Jong Un or the confederacy should be shunned. It is not about political correctness. It shouldn’t be about “tradition,” because it is about slavery. I am not ignorant to the “stars and bars” or its history. Surely, items should be preserved for historical purposes but taking pride in the confederacy or its symbolism should be shunned. Liberals are wrong 99% of the time and use identity politics for votes – this is not something we should fight for. Traditionalism is the bane of conservatism.

    Fox News is conservative. It is undeniable. I do not begrudge a network or media for this. Each side has their watchdogs.

    The two party system is the least worst of the options for electing people to serve in government.

    Fragulator, your avatar on this forum made me wipe my laptop monitor twice. Your avatar looks like a piece of spit-up food.
