I have said since I was very young that us conservative/libertarian types are the counter culture.
There was a time when young people wanted to fight the man. Now the man collects $60k to $100k a year feeding them lies in the classroom, all the while claiming to fight the man alongside them.
Quick tip to the students out there who maintain relationships with their teachers/professors…
They aren’t hip, cool, or even groovy. If they claim to be on your side in the fight against “The Man” whomever they claim that to be (white males, capitalism, racism, etc.) they are lying.
They are more than likely part of one of the most powerful entities in the country (teachers unions,) and therefore incapable of fighting authority… Because they are the authority…
But I digress…
My writing today is inspired by my grandmother.
Grandma is an Irish Catholic that grew up in the late 50’s early 60’s, who married a man that later became a fireman and moved his family from east LA (at that time not a shit hole,) to Orange County.
Grandma is a staunch conservative and religious woman. The rich tones of Dennis Prager’s voice can be heard coming from her living room’s entertainment center speakers every weekday morning from 9 AM to 12 PM. She attends mass every Thursday, and she still irons tee shirts for some reason.
She has a great disdain for foul language, though her husband and both of her sons are so linguistically adept in the art of obscenity that their frustration fueled soliloquies have been at times dubbed Shakespearean.
She insists that her grandchildren “smile more often” and “wear more color” as black should only be worn to funerals.
She enjoys Frankie Valli, The Jersey Boys, and literally every artist featured on the American Graffiti soundtrack. If’s she’s not watching HGTV, she’s more than likely watching Green Acres on TVland. Her idea of edgy programming features Dean Martin and Foster Brooks at a bar pretending to be drunk.
If one calls her landline (which she believes still tangibly utilizes a metal wire,) and does not state one’s name along with the reason for one’s call upfront you will be promptly hung up on. If you disrespect her and or anyone in her party, she will speak to your manager.
She raised two sons successfully who in turn gave her four grandchildren. And if you are lucky enough to be one of those four grandchildren you will be fed sandwiches anytime you enter her home along with shortbread cookies (ginger snaps when she’s feeling extra geriatric) and a Coca-Cola.
She’s a patriot. A true American. A true American who almost lost her country…
If Hillary Clinton had won, the America she knew and loved– the one that she grew up in would be lost, possibly forever.
She understood this, and though I’m sure it killed her she began modernizing herself for the sake of her country.
You see, young people who are not intellectually challenged understand that the right is the new counter-culture. It’s the side that leaves you alone.
While the right will in fact judge, it won’t try and legislate its judgments beyond the state level, if at all.
This year we have seen a tremendous demographic shift in the conservative movement. We are no longer the movement of just middle-class white America. We are now the movement of fags, trannies, pot smokers, blue collar democrats and even Kanye West!
Trump won because we all came together against a common enemy.
That enemy? Tyranny.
It is important for us on the conservative right to acknowledge that without those with whom we may disagree when it comes to social culture, we could not have retained our political culture.
Without those who disagree with us when it comes to religious beliefs, acceptable sexual behavior, substance usage, and the portrayal of such issues in media, we would have lost our country
And without us stuffy, white, conservatives… Fags themselves wouldn’t be permitted to say the word fag, any and all sexual contact would require a written contract prior to engagement, and Islamic extremists would be allowed to rape, pillage, and murder anyone they please on American soil.
While the religious right, and the alternative right, are different in nature when it comes to social culture they value the most important constitutional principle equally:
We could not have done it if we had not come together. The new counter-culture, the conservative movement is the most diverse and unpredictable group of people that have ever been classified as similar.
And for that, we must thank one another. We must not break the bonds that hold us together.
If you are a stoner, be considerate about your habit, don’t smoke it around children or in confined public places. You’re gonna piss off Archie Bunker (who’s my homie btw)
For the fags out there, we don’t care if you get married, we don’t care what you do in your own bedrooms, so don’t shove it in our faces or sue us when we refuse to bake you a wedding cake.
For the stuffy old white people out there, they aren’t fucking your sons in the ass, or getting married in your churches. If they are, that’s an issue you have to bring up with your church. So don’t march in protest, don’t hold up a sign that says God hates fags. (As if that was us to begin with…)
Instead of defining ourselves by our differences let’s define ourselves by the things that we hold in common– The common belief that all men are created equal and shall be valued that way by their government. The common belief that the government does not grant us our rights, but that we grant it’s.
If we live lifestyles that are incompatible, then we must work together to remedy our close quarters. If you don’t like watching queers make out, don’t move to West Hollywood. And if you’re a fag and don’t like getting strange looks from passing families as you kiss your mate, don’t move to Orange County… or at the very least no tongue please…
Look, I’m kidding, but I’m also not.
My grandmother about had a heart attack the first time she saw a tattoo on my skin. She will never get used to it. She will never approve. But she will never disown me either.
She will never stop offering me sandwiches and Coca-Cola when I come to her home. She will never stop forwarding me silly emails, or pestering me about wearing black all the time. She will never deny that we share blood.
And we Americans can’t either. We all share American blood. The blood of freemen and the blood of men willing to fight for those who are not free.
We’ve been the counterculture for the past 20 years. It’s time we become the culture. Not the social culture but the political culture. We cannot achieve this if we do not stand together.
Trump won because we all came together against a common enemy. We cannot beat the left separated so if we wish to live on in an America that values freedom we must learn to live and let live.
Self-segregate and support each other in times of need.
We have a responsibility to set aside our petty differences in order to combat those with whom we have big ones.
Be thankful we live in America. Be thankful we didn’t lose for good this last go around.
This just in!
I have received information from an inside source confirming there are, in fact, assholes in the world!
All of our suspicions have been confirmed! Turns out in America you are allowed to say whatever you want no matter how offensive and subsequently some people use said power in a distasteful manner!
The horror! THE HORROR!!!
If you have been paying attention to any of the popular online media sources like HuffPo or Buzzfeed you have surely come across curated collections of testimony from supposed targets of racial harassment.
Now I must say I am highly skeptical of these sort of stories unless they include video. Not even pictures suffice these days with all the fraudulent bullshit the left has tried to pull during this election cycle.
However, let’s just say for the sake of argument that these experiences people are having are real.
What does Trump have to do with any of it?
What would be different had Hillary won the election?
If you are going to claim that with a Hillary victory these kind of experiences would cease to exist then you must also admit that you do not believe in freedom of speech and would in fact actively seek to silence those with whom you disagree.
Their narrative is ridiculous. Like Gavin Mcinness has been saying lately; What is their scenario? What do they foresee as being the new normal under a trump presidency? Do they actually believe swaths of Trump supporters are going to go around beating up handicapped kids, whipping Mexicans and lynching blacks because “Trump is president! It’s legal now! Yeeehaw!”
That world doesn’t exist. None of us find that kind of behavior acceptable. So what then are they talking about?
I recently saw a friend post on facebook about the sudden upswing in racist activity that has hit the radar.
In his post he stated that he has no problem with Trump aside from the “mental platform” that he has provided for racists to become more vocal in this country.
Now if I am interpreting what he wrote correctly, he is saying he feels Trumps election has made it easier and much more socially acceptable for racists to be dickheads. Because the average non-racist American is so fed up with the PC and safe space culture that has dominated the country for the past 8 years, he/she is unsympathetic when real incidents of non-violent racism take place.
There may be some truth there. And unfortunately for you anti-Trump lefties out there that is the cultural bed you have made for yourselves and you are going to have to sleep in it.
Now this friend of mine also mentioned in and his post some feelings he had about nationalism and his role as the first generation (I’m guessing since he said his parents didn’t speak English well) of natural born citizens in his family.
And there’s plenty of discussion to be had on such topics. However, right now what is important is that we do not allow this safe space propaganda to affect our lives negatively.
America has spoken. Trump is in. We made that decision collectively, and we did it confidently. The margin says it all.
Now we must be sure that we do not allow the left, and the swaths of SJW’s rioting in the streets to make us feel guilty.
We need to treat our neighbors as we’d like to be treated. We all know that. Some people aren’t going to follow said golden rule and that sucks.
But as far as collective outrage goes? Over name calling and racial slurs?
Toughen up. Come get us when you get pulled out of your car and beaten for being a Hillary supporter. Anything short of that…
Shut the fuck up and get out of the way.
We have an economy to fix.
As you already know, the left (millennials specifically), have broken out into temper tantrums all over the country.
Business as usual…
Why you might ask?
Because they’re unhappy with the outcome of our presidential election.
It’s really quite a comedic display of immaturity. What outcome do they seek?
Whether or not you like the outcome of our election process does not matter. It is in fact, and will remain so, objective reality.
You can bitch and complain all you want about our blue sky if you wish it to be purple. Yet that does not change the fact that it is blue and shall remain so, so long as the laws of physics remain in effect.
But that’s just it. The left, millennials, do not wish for the laws of physics to remain in effect.
They do not care that the laws of physics provide us with a structure that allows for an environment possessing the characteristics necessary to afford us life. And not just life, but a life that we may improve.
In case I have lost you with my tangent, “stream of consciousness” metaphor, I am referring to the constitution.
You see the millennials have long ago been robbed of the knowledge that we do not live in a democracy. Rather we live in a constitutional republic.
Now, throughout high school and more than likely middle school as well, they would/will have encountered history and/or civics teachers that will tell them there is no difference between a republic and a democracy.
They will claim that the literal definition of republic is democracy.
Well, if that is the case then why do we not call it a constitutional democracy?
Furthermore why am I always corrected when I call it a constitutional republic if they mean the same thing?
Why do so many refuse to use the word republic?
Why did James Madison write about the difference?
If you don’t know the answer to this question, you probably have not been paying attention to the pleas of many leftists, and even Republicans in this past election cycle.
By swapping the word republic for the word democracy, it is much easier to entertain ideas contradictory to our constitution when they are popular among the masses.
It’s a tactic the left uses all the time.
They are able to make abortion more palatable by swapping the word baby for fetus.
Just as they’re able to to lessen the perceived criminality of illegal immigrants by swapping the word illegal for undocumented.
It’s genius, and one of the oldest tricks in the book.
OK, so what exactly are they trying to change about our electoral process?
The most prominent issue at the moment…
The Electoral College.
They claim it is no longer necessary, and bitch every time their candidate wins the popular vote but loses the electoral vote.
As we established earlier, we do not live in a democracy where the mob rules. We live in a constitutional republic and as such the founders laid out a structure that ensures every state gets to participate in federal arrangements. All 50 sovereign states. (Even the small ones with fewer people)
If you don’t know how the electoral college works refer to Article 2 of the United States Constitution which you should own a copy of.
If you don’t…🙄
Go check out the PragerU video about it or visit the National Archives and Records Administration’s website.
The founders designed the electoral college in such a way that promotes unity of the states. It forces presidential nominees to campaign and address the issues of all Americans.
You see the left looks at it wrong. They look at it from the standpoint of the individual and not from the standpoint of the states.
We are not electing a leader to lead us as individuals. We already have one of those; that leader is called a governor. We are electing a leader to lead us as sovereign states.
Ignoring rural areas with smaller populations is not only morally wrong, but it is also a recipe for disaster. It’s a great way to cause conflict between states. Do I really need to remind you of the French Revolution?
I know many college aged New Yorkers couldn’t give a shit less about what a bunch of “God fearing, sister fucking hicks” in the middle of the country want… but they really ought to rethink it. Those states are important too… Many of them grow your food.
If the rioting and the childish temper tantrums are not enough to prove to you we are failing our country’s youth (and subsequently our country) in building well informed, intelligent, mature members of society, maybe their latest petition will.
How can we ever expect America to live on after we pass if the generation we are handing it down to doesn’t even understand what it’s about?
I sat in traffic for 45 minutes this morning to go 15 miles… And I smiled the whole Goddamn way.
When I finally got to work I pounded a rebull and two coffees to fight off the symptoms of sleep deprivation. Which of course sent me straight to the restroom so that I may listen to my bowels tell me how much they hate me. I smiled throughout the duration of that experience as well.
I smiled not because Donald Trump won.
I didn’t smile because his policies will usher in a new era of economic prosperity if enacted as he has promised.
I didn’t smile because his understanding of the dangers to American safety will ensure that my mother, sister and girlfriend can go out into public without fear of getting gang raped by sharia law enthusiasts.
I didn’t smile because rule of law may once again be restored in our political process.
And I didn’t smile because the #NeverTrumpers got it stuck in there ass. (Okay well maybe a little 😏)
While thoughts of these things have enhanced my joyous mood… they are not the cause.
I am joyous not because Trump won, but because Hillary lost.
Her defeat illustrates America’s understanding of where we have been headed for the past 8 years.
Her defeat symbolizes hope for the survival of the western world.
It is true, we do indeed have our work cut out for us.
We took back the presidency. We have taken back the high ground. It is time to kick them while they are down and make damn sure they do not get back up.
We need to be vigilant in not only holding President Trump to his promises but also in the education of the next generation. We need to be sure they know just how close we came to losing it all.
I believe Trump will do what he says he is going to do. But whether he does or not is a matter for tomorrow.
Tomorrow we can rally the troops and discuss our next plan of attack.
But today I’m going to enjoy the ocean breeze here in sunny Southern California.
I’m going to smell flowers, pet furry animals of all shapes and sizes and smile at strangers.
I’m going to take comfort in knowing that though we came close…
Though the end of the western world and human progress was just around the corner…
America still had enough sense to say…
In the words of Michael Moore –
…Hell! I might even go to church this Sunday.
I am disappointed.
The debate tonight was horrendous. If it wasn’t for all the fun I was having on Twitter I might even have shut it off.
It seemed very obvious to me who Fox wanted to look good. *cough* Bush *Cough*
But I guess I should have expected that out of them as they are literally the most establishment media source on the right.
What bugged me even more was how much I really enjoyed what Rubio had to say.
Someone has got to get that fool squared away on immigration so I can vote for him because I am sorry but that is a deal breaker.
And Ted… What the fuck Ted… What was that?
Not only did you whine like a bitch… But you acted like an arrogant fool.
YOU AREN’T DONALD TRUMP!
Thats why we all like you. You do not wear arrogance well. That was evident tonight…
Speaking of the Donald…
CAN YOU SAY NAILED IT!?
Well played DT… Well played indeed…
Here’s the deal folks:
I am about to lay some truth on you so listen up. It is a harsh truth. One I like no more than the rest of you.
TRUMP IS THE BEST CANDIDATE IF HE DOES WHAT HE TELLS US HE PLANS TO!
And that’s the gamble right?
He has a shady record for sure. He’s not a conservative by any means. But he is brilliant and he is a business man.
I don’t want any deals struck with Mitch McConnell or Chuck Schumer. I don’t want deals made with anyone.
What I want is someone like Cruzer who will get up and fight for my principles. But even now… A day and age I thought I’d never see if you had asked me in 2012… Where Ted Cruz is an actual front runner… WE MAY NOT HAVE THAT LUXURY.
Our country will not make it through the next presidential term no matter who the president is if we do not get our economy under control and our borders LOCKED THE FUCK UP!
Marco Rubio is soft on immigration = NOT AN OPTION
Ted Cruz not positive can beat Hillary = NOT AN OPTION
Which leaves us with who?
Donald Trump might be the worst president in the history of the United States when it comes to actual conservative principles. But he might be the handful of sand we need to win this boxing match.
I listened to Mark Levin speak all afternoon about how Trump is not a conservative and how low is favorability ratings are and blah blah blah blah blah
“Don’t give up on our guys now!” he says! “Never abandon your principles!” he says!
Yeah Mark… You are right. If nothing else our principles should be the one thing we hold dearest to our hearts and minds.
I should be willing to die for my principles. And I am…
But brother I ain’t in the business of dying.
Especially not when I think we might actually have a shot at turning this thing around. Even if that means voting for someone who is not as principled as we are in order to beat Hillary.
Ted Cruz – Not sure if he can win the primary let alone beat Hillary : NO GO
Donald Trump – Don’t know if I trust him but at least he can win : ….hmmm
A vote for Donald Trump may not be a vote for a principled America.
And it certainly isn’t a vote for a perfect America.
But it is a vote for a surviving America.
Every now and again you have got to throw a hand full of sand to win the fight even though it goes against your principles. Every now and then you have to go against your principles in order to save them.
Donald Trump may ruin this country.
But his tax plan and immigration policies alone will turn the economy around in the blink of an eye.
Can we trust him to follow through? I don’t know.
But in a country where to this day the majority of people in America DON’T EVEN KNOW WHO TED CRUZ IS!!!
…I’ll take my chances with the big name.
As a part of the libertarian community all to often I am subject to the whining that so many young/naive libertarians do about the separation of church and state.
The reason for the whining is obvious, and that is that most young people immaturely and naively hate being told what to do. This, in many cases, is what draws them towards libertarianism in the first place- Our belief that man should be free to do as he pleases to some extent.
In contrast with their naive attraction to libertarianism (which is fundamentally a good thing) is their attraction towards secularism (which is fundamentally a bad thing.)
Though I just jabbed a bit at the secular libertarians/conservatives for being secular (and I will continue to do so) this is not the topic I wish to discuss today.
All I wish to do is suggest that the passion that is exhibited by said heathens during discussion with their own side, in regards to the separation of church and states, is a bit unnecessary.
So hear me out.
Point number one:
Let’s speak strictly philosophically here for a moment shall we?
If we are to accept as a nation the nonexistence of God, we are also accepting the lack of any existence after death including that in which punishment takes place.
Now many of you secular libertarians maintain that if someone needs a higher power to scare you into doing “the right thing” then that someone is a piece of shit.
By that logic I am, and I wager most of you are (if you are intellectually honest with yourselves), pieces of shit.
I am someone that needs fear of punishment as motivation to be good. I happen to believe that this is a logical way of life. I believe you would be a moron to be “good” in the subjective moral world that exists without monotheism. But what does that matter?
The mere fact that I admit people like me exist, that is people who believe themselves to be evil in nature, should be enough to make you “morally superior, mature, intelligent, enlightened atheist libertarians” back off the separation of church and state issue.
The risk of societal collapse is far greater when its people fall to secularism. At the very least one must acknowledge the degree of barbarism in times of chaos is less intense in a monotheistic society when compared to that of a secular one. Don’t believe me? Just compare the French revolution to the American revolution.
Aren’t all of you libertarians fearful of economic collapse in the U.S?
Do you not look around at your peers who are “feeling the Bern” and wonder what is to come?
Why then do you choose to hammer on religious Christian conservatives so much?
I am a constitutionalist. I get it. I don’t want the church running the country either.
I get that you want your porn, your marijuana and your whore houses.
I understand that there are some small things that you and Christian conservatives disagree on,
but that’s exactly my point! They are small things, and in the meantime you tear our political party in two.
I know you folks are smart enough to realize that the “Social Justice Warrior” left is far more likely to regulate your lives than the Christian right.
Point number two:
Now here is a mind blowing thought. Are you ready?
This country was founded by Christians, for Christians.
I can practically feel the collective rage of all you secular libertarians out there as I type!
If you are someone who read that last statement and is thinking:
“WE HAVE SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE! HOW DARE YOU SAY SUCH A THING! DO YOU NOT VALUE THE CONSTITUTION!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!”
Don’t, and riddle me this…
If all of our founding fathers were secular and did not want a country centered around God, why does our federal law reflect that of a Judeo-Christian people?
Have you ever stopped and considered for a moment that for all intents and purposes you are a Christian? Practically speaking, if you don’t murder, you don’t steal, you don’t leave your wife high and dry with kids to feed and no income then you are living as a Christian. At the fundamental level at least.
If you follow our laws, you generally speaking, are treating your neighbor as you would wish to be treated, and that is the golden rule in the eyes of Christ.
Those of us who don’t live as Christians in the United States of America are jailed.
Whether you are an Atheist, a Nihilist, a Satanist, a Muslim, or a Buddhist does not matter. In this land you are required to act in a way that does not conflict with the teachings (at a fundamental level) of a Jew or a Christian. This, also means that you are in fact living (on a fundamental level) as a Christian.
As I said before… By Christians, for Christians.
Did the founders want a secular government? Sure they did!
And so maybe Christians ought to lay off the nativity scenes on the lawns of federal buildings. But it should be clear enough to you libertarians out there that are secular that nativity scenes on the lawns of local governmental buildings should be a local decision. Why?
Because even if the founders wanted a secular government, they most certainly wanted a God centered society.
So stop acting like a bunch of fucking ten year olds when someone says “one nation under God” in the pledge of allegiance. At least they still say the fucking thing! I’d be surprised if most high school students knew it by heart!
And if you still don’t believe the founders were Christian, you should try reading some primary source documents penned at their hands instead of listening to your commie professor who is to arrogant to take Howard Zinn’s dick out of his mouth for a single second in order to teach some actual history.
At the very least check out Joshua Charles’ book Libery’s Secrets: The Lost Wisdom of America’s Founders
