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…

Gal-Queda: We Need Men… Who Build Stuff

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – " 'Surely, modern women are strong enough now to give credit where credit is due!' Well, Camille, they’re not going to give credit where credit is due because they’re members of Gal-Qaeda. They’re arrogant and full of themselves, just as so many other people have become, because we are we, and no one gives credit for anything. Trust me, I know."

[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 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…

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.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Well, open today’s Pile of Prep and you will find a link and a quote to a blog post written by Andrew Sullivan. Sullivan writes at The Dish, which is a website that he -- he used to write for The Atlantic. He went out on his own.

Conservatism Should Come First And Has Nothing To Do With Politics

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Conservatism is an intellectual exercise. It is an exercise in thinking, in bringing the magnificent past, the history that we have to draw from, which is unbelievable, the history we have to draw from, the events, the great writers, the philosophies. This is part of the equation. It’s not just the founders. There were people before founders. The founders are part of it, sure, but they’re not all of it. It’s bringing the beauty and knowledge and the good traditions and institutions of history into the present to deal with our current issues and problems, but not always dealing with them using government and politics.

Ted Cruz Could Learn From Rand Paul How To Be A Statesman And A Gentleman

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – There is something to be said in terms of your mannerisms, attitude, charisma. It’s something that I think Senator Paul does an amazing job with. I wish Cruz would take some cues from that. Just being so ardently supported by the 15, 20 percent of the people that like you doesn’t win you a presidential election in 2016.

True Conservatives Aren’t Hurting The GOP Because The GOP Doesn’t Represent Them

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What she’s talking about is not conservative or conservatism. She’s talking about Republicanism. There is party mantra. There is party dogma that makes one a Republican. This is why the term RINO, Republican in name only is still so popular, [mocking] “We gotta get rid of them damn RINO Republicans” and why it is a problem. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Edmund Burke – The Age Of Chivalry Is Gone

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In reflecting on what was happening in France in the French Revolution -- Burke was a cosmopolitan kind of guy, so he was an admirer of other countries and of other cultures. He was an admirer of the French. No one wanted to see what happened in France happen. Burke was one of the few that had the intellectual as well as spiritual knowledge and intellect to be able to respond in a manner that would stand the test of time.

Conservatism – The Most Misused Word In Politics

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I have a very intriguing thought to add to this discussion about intellect and about what conservatives ought to do. As a nonconformist member of the worst generation, I think the major problem we have today is we’re not smart enough to have studied, or we’re not studious to know what words actually mean. We use many words out of context. The most bastardized and abused word out there is the word conservative. 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...
