The Conservative Apologist: On the Abortion of Abortion

We are excited to introduce you to a new post series!  Every first Friday we will be hearing from Noah who will be writing our “Conservative Apologist” column!  This column is meant to not only help those who may not agree with a conservative stance on an issue to see it in a different light, but also to help us as conservatives know how to give an answer for what we believe.  We trust you’ll be blessed by these posts, so without further delay, here’s our first “Conservative Apologist” post!

The Conservative Apologist: On the Abortion of Abortion

It has been commonly remarked that Christian conservatives are only against abortion for religious reasons, and that they should not be allowed to let their obtrusive religious opinions infringe upon the rights of others.  However, is the Pro-Life, Abolitionist position merely religious?  Or are there arguments outside of religion that pro-life conservatives can make?

Fascism vs. Communism: A House Divided Against Itself

If history is any indication, the antics of fascism and communism pool themselves on the same wavelength of tyranny and countries, governments and societies subjected to each of their political systems and influences have witnessed some of the worst atrocities ever committed in the annals of human history.  It is a fool’s errand to even make an academic attempt to separate one tyrannical philosophy from the other as having a better grip on the tenets of moral law.  In Europe, during the period of World War II and spanning from the invasion of Poland in 1939 to the invasion of Germany by the Allied Powers in 1945, the political system governed under the doctrine of Nazi fascism was responsible for the deaths of an astounding 20 million people, including 6 million Jews who were slaughtered in the gas chambers in the Holocaustic death camps (such as Auschwitz, Dachau and Sobibor) for the crime of merely being a certain race.  Stalin and his repulsive philosophy, under the flag of the hammer and sickle, was directly responsible for the deaths and murders of 20-35 million people, millions of whom were his own citizens.  His reign of terror wiped out a double digit percentage of the Soviet Union’s population.  In Communist China, under Mao Zedong’s Great Leap Forward, the Communist revolution commenced a slaughter that wiped out the lives of 45 million people within just four years during the 1950s into the 1960s.  To put such an astounding number into context, the amount of deaths attributed to Mao’s Communism in China was comparable to 82% of the total recorded deaths in World War II, which is estimated to be around 55 million.  For one man, driven by an ideology, to be responsible for that many deaths, speaks to the premise of the ideology by which he is driven, and it can be assured that “virtue” plays no role in the construction of policy under such views.  For those who hate the concept of God in society, they must then operate under the materialistic Darwinian belief that “survival of the fittest” is the dominant and only prevailing philosophy amidst all things “life.”  This reality then keeps those who identify with the tyrannical “isms” of the 20th century from ever trying to make a moral case for their politics, let alone their views on human rights and liberty.

NGV Friday – From the Whistleblower: Flags, Football, and Foolishness

Hello Patriots!

I’m excited to introduce our new third Friday monthly guest column from New Generation Voters!!!  The team at NGV is awesome and, like YPL, they are committed to helping to preserve the principles of liberty.

Here’s a little intro from their site:

New Generation Voters is committed to young voters and pre-voters, the future of our nation. In a time of continual political excitement, we want to enlighten the minds of young and future voters, or young at heart, to understand complex domestic, foreign policy, and social issues.

Youth politics, and engaging young voters, is a focus of our site as we look to interact with those of the next generation that are interested in politics. We aim to focus on educating young voters on the importance of both national and local elections. Tip O’Neill famously coined the phrase, “all politics is local”, which has been forgotten many times. The legislation coming from Congress effects the local level, but the actions being taken at the small town level will eventually have an effect on the actions of Congress.

We’re excited to be collaborating with the NGV team and trust that you’ll be blessed by what they share each month!

Please head over to newgenerationvoters.com to check out their site, follow them, and be sure to like their Facebook page!

Now without further delay, here’s our first third Friday post from New Generation Voters!!! Continue reading “NGV Friday – From the Whistleblower: Flags, Football, and Foolishness”

What Makes America Great: Our History

The very foundation of our nation is at stake.  We’re losing our heritage.  Our history is being targeted, sabotaged, and re-written.  We’ve all seen this – from the re-writing of school textbooks to the recent tearing down of historic statues and monuments – there are those who wish to see our history erased, re-written, and forgotten.  If this continues, the knowledge of our heritage will die with us.  We can’t afford to let this happen.  We must reignite the flames of freedom, passion, and patriotism.  We must remind this generation of our history – and not just remind them – but help them to see what a truly great history it is.
