Restoring Accountability to Party Politics

Doing away with the two-party system has been discussed for years, and this past election cycle was no exception, with many casting third-party votes in rejection of bankrupt character and a falling away from once-held ideals, among other reasons. One day we may see the deconstruction of our current party system. We may not. Time will inevitably tell. Though there were significant rejections of both … Continue reading Restoring Accountability to Party Politics

Limited Government isn’t a Republican v. Democrat Issue

After Donald Trump won the election, Democrats came out in support of limited government and the Bill of Rights. That’s great! But where have these Democrats been for the past eight years? The Left has been silent and turned a blind eye whenever President Obama supported legislation that infringes on civil liberties. From expanding the surveillance state to going to war without congressional approval, Obama … Continue reading Limited Government isn’t a Republican v. Democrat Issue

A Message from the Silent Generation: This Isn’t the Worst America has Faced

Across from the Washington Monument in Washington D.C. stands a memorial that exists to honor those who served during World War 2. Every time I pass the World War 2 memorial, I look in awe at the fountains and remember the person who helped create them: a father, grandparent, and a man who had three of his brothers serve during World War 2. He’s a … Continue reading A Message from the Silent Generation: This Isn’t the Worst America has Faced

Yes, It Really Happened: Trump Triumphs & Clinton Concedes

I’ve spent the last several days trying to take everything in. To say I was shocked at the election results on Tuesday night would be a gross understatement. Like the vast majority of the media, politicos and the country as a whole, I truly believed that Hillary Clinton would become the 45th president of the United States. Boy were we wrong. The results haven’t fully sunk … Continue reading Yes, It Really Happened: Trump Triumphs & Clinton Concedes

Why I am Voting My Conscience this November

This election cycle stinks. There are two choices and they are both corrupt, seem to be filled with hate, and have deplorable lifestyles that do not represent myself, nor America. But, still, my favorite day of the year is election day. This is because election day is the day where every American over the age of 18 is allowed to go to the polls and … Continue reading Why I am Voting My Conscience this November

This Election Isn’t About the ‘Lesser of Two Evils’

You can add the results of a new Washington Post-ABC News poll to the confusion this election season. The poll found that most non-republicans don’t believe Trump represents “the core values of the Republican Party.” 22% of Democrats and 21% of Independents believe Trump’s views represent the Republican Party. Compare that with 56% of Republicans, and 43% of Conservatives who believe he represents them. Who … Continue reading This Election Isn’t About the ‘Lesser of Two Evils’

I’m a 22-Year-Old Female Republican Voting for Evan McMullin

I’ve been against Donald Trump’s bid for the presidency from day one. In fact, I haven’t like the Donald for years. Before the billionaire businessman formally launched his campaign June 16, 2015, I was a vocal opponent. Of the 17 candidates who ran for the Republican nomination, I would’ve proudly supported at least 8-10 of them. But Trump’s vile rhetoric, personal attacks, and lack of … Continue reading I’m a 22-Year-Old Female Republican Voting for Evan McMullin

Let’s Never Do This Again

“I’m conservative, but I’m not a nut about it.” –President George H.W. Bush I don’t know about you, but I constantly have to remind myself that not everyone loves politics as much as I do. People have better things to do. They have more important things to worry about; things that, frankly, the current two candidates haven’t been addressing. They don’t watch 3 hours of … Continue reading Let’s Never Do This Again
