Jeff Sessions’ Latest Move Proves Conservatives are Hypocrites When it Comes to States’ Rights

Dating back to the days of slavery, southern conservatives have used the rallying cry of “states’ rights!” whenever they’ve felt the federal government was overreaching. Though usually when southern and rural conservatives have cited “states’ rights” to defend something, they’ve been upset that the federal government was trying to prevent them from denying certain rights […]

New Texas History Books are Going to Whitewash the Truth About the Civil War and the Confederacy

I’ve often accused the Republican party (and conservatives in general) of behaving more like a cult than a grouping of millions of people who thrive on facts or reality. In my opinion, they seem to care more about what they want to be real as opposed to actual reality. I’m fine with having a difference of opinions, […]

Chris Christie Just Ended His Chances Of Becoming President With This Promise

Chris Christie isn’t in the crowded 2016 GOP field just yet, but he’s already made it highly unlikely that he’ll find himself a faction of the Republican Party supportive of his candidacy should he decide to run. If Chris Christie does decide to join the pack of potential presidential candidates, he would be one of […]

The Perpetual Conservative Hissyfit: “If Liberals Are For It, I’m Against It!”

I’ve lived in the South all of my life, as some of you who follow my page already know. Over the last few decades, I’ve resided in Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and now Louisiana. Apart from the couple of years where I lived in the relatively liberal city of Orlando, the rest of that […]

Anti-Government Militia Considered Using Women as Human Shields

I’ve made it pretty clear that I’m by no means a fan of the tea party, and I believe their movement to be based on delusional radicalism and dangerous anti-government rhetoric.  I’ve encountered many tea party supporters living in Texas and they’re some of the most hateful, judgmental and misinformed people I’ve ever met. While […]

States’ Rights: Breaking Down the Historic Rallying Cry of the Hateful and Ignorant

I’m a big believer in learning from history.  As the saying goes, those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.  This is a common statement I use when debating “states’ rights” advocates. Not that I dismiss our Tenth Amendment, or the fact that states are granted certain rights over their own […]

Ted Cruz is Angry that President Obama Isn’t Arresting Colorado Pot Smokers – Seriously

Hard-right conservatives love to talk about states’ rights and quote the 10th Amendment, which reads as follows: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Every single chance they get, out comes the 10th Amendment […]

Rand, Ron and their Misanthropic Southern Strategy

Libertarians do not like being confused with conservatives. To be fair, they are not. Conservatism is about a reaction against the movement towards freedom and equality in protecting, as best it can, the status quo; libertarianism isn’t concerned about the status quo and focuses on freedom – for some. A very small subgroup of already […]
