Longtime combatant Neal B. Freeman looks at the GOP, and conservatives’ place in it, from the early days of NR on.

Note: This column originally appeared in National Review on December 4, 2013   I understand that you’ve been involved in the GOP civil war for some time. Only 50 years or so. I came in late.   How did you first become involved? I headed Youth for Goldwater in New York. Wasn’t Goldwater’s principal opponent for the Republican nomination, Nelson Rockefeller, governor of New York at the time? I had grown up in New York and at some point began to fear that Rockefeller would be governor for life. Mine, as well as his.   Why didn’t you support Rockefeller? His big-government Republicanism was ’roided up. ...

Obama’s new “grand bargain” avoids real tax reform and increases spending

From the Associated Press, reporting on the President’s speech yesterday: Seeking to ease Washington gridlock, President Barack Obama on Tuesday challenged Republicans to accept a new fiscal deal to cut corporate tax rates in exchange for more government spending on jobs programs. The offer was immediately panned by GOP lawmakers, who accused the president of repacking proposals he already supports and making no concessions to the opposing party. The Associated Press reports Senator John McCain (R-AZ) shot down the idea, as did Speaker Boehner and numerous other Republicans. What’s so bad about the President’s idea? First, his speech ...

Standing on Principle, not Party

When it comes to elections, many Americans look to the respective political parties for guidance on how to vote. Many Democrats vote “straight ticket,” as do many Republicans. In this Tea Party Patriots video, however, one American shows how she is putting principles above party. From the video: I’m worried about what’s going to happen to America in the next four years….They just don’t understand the Constitution anymore, or what the country all stands for….It scares me that we can’t say God…pretty soon we’re not going to say the Pledge of Allegiance. It just scares me that, pretty soon, America is going to fade into the rest of ...

Unlikely Duo: Obama and Roberts Handed The Country to the 1%

by Dr. Gina Loudon As Americans of all stripes shake off their shock over Obamacare being upheld, a chilling realization will soon set in. The good news in the short term, is that the only answer for people who want to escape the federal government takeover of health care is to elect politicians of either party who solemnly commit to the rule of law and swear allegiance to the Constitution. The bad news is that the 1% just completed their utter takeover of the nation and Lord help us now. At first blush, Obamacare, the insultingly euphemistically named "Affordable Care Act", is a battle between the limited government loving political right ...

Jenny Beth Martin’s Speech at the Western Conservative Summit

Who here wants elected officials to vote based on principles and convictions, regardless of the consequences?  Regardless of whether they will lose their chairmanships, committee appointments, and other perks of office? Who here is proud of Congressman Ken Buck for standing and voting on principle since he took office in DC in January? I’m proud of Ken Buck and the others who stood on principle and faced consequences in the last 2 weeks like Mark Meadows, Trent Franks, Cynthia Lummis, and Steve Pearce.  Thanks to you for making calls this week, the Republican “Leadership” reinstated Congressman Mark Meadows’ subcommittee chairmanship and ...
