Learning From Man’s Greatest Sin: Betrayal

So much of our history has been purged. honestly how can we prevent the bad things from happening again if we don’t even look back to them.
 
Benedict Arnold almost destroyed this country. He accomplished with a relatively small amount of men what most British generals couldn’t achieve with much larger numbers.

A Bizarre False Equivalence

Let me be very clear on something. There’s this strange movement of condescension toward Trump opposers being promoted by big names in the media. If you are a nominee, it is your job to implore me to vote for you. If you are the nominee and your goal is unity, it is your job to initiate the movement towards unity. If you don’t do that, you risk falling short of your goal. Read more of this post

The GOP is Dead to Me

If Donald Trump wins the general election he’ll be doing so without my vote. If Hillary Clinton wins the general election she’ll be doing so without my vote. Principles matter. I’ve been going along with the party recommended nominee for my entire voting career. Let me do a little recall of how that’s worked out.

  1. 2008 – John McCain

The Defense of Ted Cruz in a Blue State

I’ve been graced with the unique ability of being a Connecticut conservative. It’s a rare breed. It involves being and feeling truly alone in the fight for common sense conservative constitutional values. The challenge, if you ask anyone who shares my values in this state, is the ultimate obligation is not to simply say what we believe, but to practice it. If we preach frugality in government, we must also demonstrate that same frugality in our personal lives. If we preach freedom and liberty at the state and national level, we must also demonstrate that on a personal and professional level. Although people frequently do it to me, you would never see me go out and tear an opposing candidate’s campaign signs down… because I believe in more speech, not less. I believe that open minded people are smart enough to choose the right path without me resorting to tactics that are beneath the standard I hold myself to. Read more of this post

The Rise of Radical Progressivism

One of the things that we’ve always tried to do during the last years is paint of picture of how we envision an America of the future – that is our goals and aspirations for this country and its people. At the risk of sounding cliched, my approach continues to be rooted in the belief that our best days are ahead of us.  Freedom and prosperity is still attainable and the constitution is the blue print for that success.  Read more of this post
