Free Speech on College Campuses, and Jexodus
Jordan Rickards: 00:03 Okay. Welcome to the conservative opinion.com video podcast. Our guest today is the lovely Justine Murray and her resume is a little bit longer than most, so indulge me here for a moment while I read through this whole thing. Uh, Justine was the director of communications and was recently promoted […]
Trump’s Next Attorney General Should Be New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez
There’s an old proverb of questionable veracity that says that the Chinese word for “crisis” is the same as “opportunity.” President Trump must have taken that to heart, because he is especially adept at creating such opportunities for himself, the latest of which results from the obviously coerced resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who […]
Republicans Are Alarmingly Unconcerned About the Loss of Governorships to the Blue Wave
Entering the week, Republicans had two-thirds of the nation’s governorships. Now, they’re barely holding on to a simple majority. If you knew nothing about this past election other than what was being put forth by the White House, Republican congressional leaders, and reliably conservative news and social media warriors / propagandists, you would think […]
A Conservative Tribute to John McCain
John McCain will be remembered as a lot of things, but probably not as a conservative. At least, not by conservatives. That’s a shame. He was not a typical conservative, but there can never be any one version of conservatism, since conservatism is about ideas. The moment we stop exchanging ideas we stop being a […]
NFL Players Are Protesting the Results of Liberal Policies. Conservatives Should Join Them.

Note to Republicans: Americans Like Big Government. They’d Also Like Solutions.
We’re a “right of center country.” The majority of Americans are conservatives. Americans hate big government. This all goes without saying, right? Not exactly. These are the central observational axioms of the modern Republican Party, and they are not modern at all, or even especially accurate. They are at best anachronistic, and at worst gross […]
A Conservative Case for Tuition Equality for Children Brought Here Illegally
In recent months the issue of tuition equality has come to the forefront of the political debate in New Jersey. In short, proponents seek to change the laws to allow children of immigrants who have come to this country illegally and reside in this state to attend public universities and colleges at in-state rates. I […]
The Republican Party Needs a Big Tent
In a recent article posted on a libertarian website called UnitedLiberty.org, Jeremy Kolassa argues that the Republican Party “must repudiate Rick Santorum and social conservatism” and “expel the social conservatives from the party,” lest they “throw the 2012 election and perhaps relegate themselves to a non-party as early as 2024.” In other words, in order […]
Presidential Primary Preview: Mitt Romney Versus Himself
With eighteen months to go before the 2012 elections, Republicans are left to choose from a somewhat underwhelming slate of candidates. Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, Utah Governor John Huntsman, former Louisiana Governor Buddy Roemer, and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, are all well-qualified, but are about as exciting as a file cabinet. The […]
