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...

Obama’s Veto Will Be For Partisan Rather Than Constitutional Reasons

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Yes, we’re going to go down the road of constitutional fantasy land for just a moment. This could be another exercise in civics. Why should the President of the United States, why should that veto pen of his have such grave or awesome power? To answer that query is to answer the purpose of why we have a written constitution to begin with. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

“Let’s Just Get Back To The Founders And The Constitution” Doesn’t Solve Our Problems

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If you were to ask members of the founding generation, if you were to go back in time, if you could hop in the King Dude’s wayback machine and ask Richard Henry Lee: What do you think about this new constitution deal? How do you think this is going to turn out for your posterity and for future generations? He, with others, was mortified. He thought it was going to turn out exactly as it is turning out today and as it began to degrade and devolve in the early part of the 19th century. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Sales Taxes Go Way Back…And They’re Always A Bad Idea

Is The Tea Party Over? Libs Have Grave Dances Ready & Say “Yes!”

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - I think the challenge for the future of that particular body of movement is to move beyond the electronic media and get into actually doing things, get into actually meeting face to face. Meeting face to face has its advantages. Meeting face to face and trying to find if there is any common ground when you’re not blabbing on endlessly on Facebook is a challenge.

The Constitution Was Written By Fallible Men, Not Divined By God

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - You see and hear it every day on this show when people call me up and argue with me about incorporation and deny the history. It has to do with this idea that the United States Constitution was sent by God, that it was carried down from Mt. Sinai, which was Independence Hall, carved on stone tablets, and we’re all sworn a perpetual and never-ending oath to uphold and worship it. It was a document, ladies and gentlemen, written by mortal men. They were flawed. Check out today's transcript for the rest...
