Is There Any Place For True Conservatism?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Is there anything worth conserving anymore, anything? I don’t mind having the debate, but it seems to me that the continued issues of these provocative things is in and of itself exactly what we used to accuse the progressives of. You just keep pushing and pushing until you finally get your way. You finally break down every conservative on earth and you finally make conservatives start acting like liberals or acting like progressives. Now we have conservatives that are doing the exact same thing. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Revisionist History, Lincoln, And The Gettysburg Address

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – By the bye, Richard Gamble, a friend and colleague of Dr. Brad Birzer’s at Hillsdale had a piece posted last week at The American Conservative Magazine entitled “Gettysburg Gospel.” I did not know this. Did you know that some of the quotes that Lincoln tossed into the American scripture were actually taken from a journal? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Conservative, Tea Party, And Republican Are Not Synonyms

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Here’s the headline from the magazine post: “Why the Tea Party Can’t Govern.” Here, let me give you the tease, “Something is seriously wrong with conservatism.” Let me stop right there. Damn skippy, yeah! Hello!? Conservatism is an advertising slogan. That’s what’s wrong with it. Anything that becomes an ism, you might say, is probably, going back to Frohnen’s post about “What is this Thing called Virtue?” is something that is not going to produce results that people think it’s going to produce.

Real Christian Charity Is Needed Today

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In other words, what the original progressive charitable people wanted to do was eliminate all the slobs out there, eliminate all the people that weren’t them. In other words, let’s build a master race right here in the United States. We won’t have any poor people and we won’t have to have any philanthropy or charity. The problem with charity is it creates more poor people, in other words, and more people in need. Screw the least of these, which explains the attitude, the death culture behind abortion.

Enough Already With The “USA! USA!” Jingoism, Let’s Try A Little Localism

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What we need is an alteration in manner of thinking. Manner of thinking today is jingoistic “USA! USA!” as opposed to localistic. I don’t want to say republican or individualistic because individualism is also part of what’s rotten at the core of society today. Daniel Larison has this intriguing post at The American Conservative Magazine last night, “Rejecting Jingoism and Groupthink.” Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Patrick Deneen Asks A Great Question: “What Is An American Conservative?”

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – There is an essay at The American Conservative Magazine website. [mocking] “Mike, you were hard on The American Conservative Magazine yesterday.” Yeah, well, I was just being honest. I don’t ask for jingoism from anyone else, so I don’t expect that anyone expects they’re going to get jingoism or Homerism from yours truly. In any event, The American Conservative Magazine’s Patrick J. Deneen posts what I think is an article -- this is not internet folly, not fantasy, not made up and comprised of a bunch of forwarded, hackneyed emails that aren’t true. The title of the piece is “What Is an American Conservative?” That is a great question. Check out today's transcript for the rest...

What Did You Think Decreasing The Size And Scope Of Government Would Look Like?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Again, I fail to see why anyone that participates in, advocates for, and has been dreaming about shrinking the federal leviathan, why you are not taking the chance or the opportunity to hit the ramparts, to dig yourself in, and to encourage those that have a vote or say-so in this to hold the line. Folks, this is the battle we’ve all been waiting for, isn’t it? What did you think it would look like? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
