What is Conservatism? According to Russell Kirk It’s A Set of Principles, Not Party Politics.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Conservatism isn't about political parties or even politics in general. Simply put, it's about conserving the good things in one's life. Conserving your family, relationships with friends, culture, history, community, nature, etc. You wouldn't try to conserve the bad or evil things in your life would you? Russell Kirk gives us ten principles that we should follow as conservatives, and not too surprisingly if you listen to this show, none of them directly involve politics. They can certainly be applied to the way you think about politics, and they should, but they aren't a set a laws you must follow to be a member of the GOP.

The [r]epublicanism Virus Has Escaped, Infecting Communities With The Spirit Of Self-Government And Civic Pride

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If there’s one thing I think we’re going to be very excited about the prospects of in the very near future for ourselves, for the rest of our lives, and hopefully for our children, it is that decentralization, republicanism, and civic spirit is returning. It wasn’t on the backburner. I think it was pretty much on life support. It has been revived. It has not been revived in the persona of a political party. It has been revived in the persona of citizens and the citizenry and in civic activity and in civic mindedness. This is important because republicanism requires your participation.

Just Admit Defeat Already, Obamacare Should Be Reformed, Not Repealed

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – One of the things that we talk about here on this show that I think distinguishes it from others is that there is no partisan solution. First of all, the conservative does not believe there is a political solution to life. Let me repeat that. The conservative does not believe that there is a political solution to life’s problems. Life’s problems have to be experienced and worked out by individuals. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

[r]epublicanism Is The Glue That Can Hold This Country Together

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In other words, we’ll vote for benefits that we know we can’t afford. We’re going to borrow money from future generations. Even when we’re told, like the Greeks are being told “You gotta stop,” we won’t do it. We’ll throw hissy fits and demand that the rest of the world bail us out. That is the pathetic state of affairs we find ourselves in today. It doesn’t have to be this way, folks. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

The Founding Fathers Weren’t Gods, And Neither Are Modern Politicians

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I wish it were a news flash, but it’s not a news flash that the welfare state has replaced the charity state and the little laboratories of philanthropy and democracy that de Tocqueville saw when he came here back in the 1820s and 1830s and wrote a book about it called Democracy in America. I think the experiment was doomed to fail as soon as the first bow was breached. We can wax vainglorious all we want to about the magnanimity and the genius and brilliance of the founding fathers, but the fact of the matter remains that it’s their system that has become corrupted.

The Constitution Is Dead, But We Do Have Three Remedies For Decentralizing Leviathan

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What I think I figured out is that the Obamacare act has so many of you so frustrated, politically frustrated, and since it has become nearly the singular cause célèbra of the “conservative movement,” and that there doesn’t seem to be a constitutional remedy to escape it. We’re not going to take it, but there are probably three constitutional remedies. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Community Is Vital And Funeral Selfies Are Another Reminder Why

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I thought when I got this that this was one of those it looks like a story but it’s actually an ad. You know what I’m talking about? They try to get you to click them by making them look like stories when they’re advertisements. The first time I saw it, I ignored it. Second time I saw it, I was actually at TownHall, because I had actually clicked on one of the other stories yesterday. I saw it was an actual story and went: Hmm, funeral selfies, really?

You Won’t Find Your Leader Of The 101st Talk Radio Show Militia Here

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Simpson makes the other brilliant point, which is very rarely discussed. Let’s just say that what you think is going to happen actually happens. What happens after that? Who gets to run the show? You people think there’s actually another George Washington out there? Our revolution was very unique. Our revolution was one of the very rare instances in the history of all humanity, 8,000 years of recorded history, ours was one of the very, very rare instances where at the end of a revolution, a king, a monarch, or a dictator did not move in to assume power.

Caller Steve Says Resistance Is Futile And We Will All Be Assimilated By Leviathan

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What’s a solution, Steve? What’s a solution? Why don’t you give me one? I have a very long, nice, written record that you can go to at this place called MikeChurch.com and you can see all the proposed solutions you would like to see. They were all aired on this radio channel. Why don’t you tell me what your solution is then? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Community Is Necessary To Be Conservative And [r]epublican

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – That’s another thing that is encouraging out there. There are a lot of younger people, younger than I, which doesn’t take very much anymore. I’m going to be using wheelchair ramps soon, I feel like. Many younger people are involved in and directly hands-on involved in trying to save their country. This is what is encouraging.

Not All Of Chicago Is Bad – Community Is As Community Does

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The citizens have to keep the peace. It’s not the cops that keep the peace in places where it’s peaceful; it’s the citizens practicing Christian humility and love toward one another that keep the peace. It is not the police. The police are there for the rare occasion when a law is broken and they must execute the law. If you have to rely on a police force in order to enforce a moral code of humility and community, it’s over. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

A Culture Of Dollars And Bling And Musical Expletives Is No Culture At All

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – As I said, we don’t have a culture any longer, not writ large. We have an anti-cult. A cult is something you organize around. It is almost always organized around a religion. This is not organized around a religion unless dollars are the religion, or unless bling is the religion, or whatever the terminology is. This is organized around radical autonomy, dubious self-promotion. There is no humility. It’s all about vanity. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Gun Control Is An Issue, But There’s More Than One Way To Solve It

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I’m going to take a counter point of view here, that is to say there is actually an opportunity here for gun owners to do something magnanimous. This doesn’t mean you have to trade your rights away. It doesn’t mean you have to go along with Dianne Feinstein or anything of the sort. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Dennis Kucinich Says Abolish The NSA And Throw Snowden A Parade

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – How many of you have used the term abolish in the last month? How many of you have thought of how to abolish, for example, the IRS, how to abolish the NSA? Around the time of the founders, when the Virginia Bill of Rights was written, principally by George Mason, the wisest man of his generation -- that’s what Jefferson called him -- there’s a clause in the Virginia Bill of Rights that says citizens have an indubitable, indefeasible, unalienable right to reform, alter, or abolish any form of government that has become destructive of the ends of society.

Community Rises Above Inequality And Endures

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – As we grow further and further and further away from any shared theological experience. We grow further and further away from any possible chance to be knit together as communities ever again. I don’t think that this plays itself out until there’s anarchy. I just think we’re in a phase right now, an epoch, and it’s our job as good Christian citizens to fix it. You can only fix it by leading by example, as I’ve often told many callers.

Juror B37 Says Zimmerman Case Wasn’t About Race

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I have three and a half minutes of it from AC360 last night. The entire interview, I think, was probably, I don’t have a rough time on it but it was the majority of the show. He asked many what I thought were pretty good questions. Juror number B37’s answers may surprise you. I’m just going to start where I picked up with it. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Caller Megan Asks: When Did Race Become An Excuse For Accountability?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – That’s a question that requires a very long, long answer and requires a giant leap backwards in history. You could go all the way back and ask the question as to why the European immigrants into the new world, why they brought with them slaves they had captured against their will on the continent of Africa, and held them here in the colonies and then in the United States against their will as part of that awful, peculiar institution known as slavery. It’s a question that’s very robust and complex. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

The Power Is With The People But We Have To Reclaim It First

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Franklin, you have swallowed whole, my friend, the red versus blue, right versus left, liberal versus conservative, Republican versus Democrat propaganda. It is nothing more than propaganda, my friend. They’re all equally corrupt. They are all equally and dispassionately involved in the redistribution of mammoth amounts of money that does not belong to them. They all routinely violate their oaths of office. They all routinely skirt morality and skirt ethics in doing so by violating their oaths. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Can Community And Church Prevent Monsters Among Us?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This is a sick, perverted society that continues to produce the monsters among us. In other words, the horror stories and the horror movies may not be fiction or fantasy. We have people that are willing to explode pressure cookers in crowds of marathon-goers. We have men that are willing to kidnap and detain young women and do unimaginable things to them and do it for a decade. We have neighbors and neighborhoods where these events are apparently occurring. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Community Is An Endangered Species And Superman Is A Hipster

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Today there are fewer and fewer communal associations. You’re told not to be part of what anyone else is doing, go toot your own horn, march to your own drummer. You need to be an individual first. You’re not a member of anything. No, we’re all Facebooking, Twittering, and pursuing our individualism, our radical autonomy all as individual little atoms totally free from any attachment whatsoever to the rest of humanity, other than the fact that we’re human.
