Armchair Liberalism: The Path of Least Resistance

My friends, as 2012 draws to a close we have much to be thankful for.  Despite President Obama’s attempts to destroy capitalism and wreck prosperity — America still enjoys the highest rate of economic growth in the civilized western world.  Still we find ourselves, and our American values besieged like never before.  We aren’t battling a foreign enemy, but we are at war with a domestic enemy that comes in the form of ideology.  You may be called upon in 2013 to do battle with a new breed of American domestic terror that I called the “Armchair Liberal”.

You see, America has changed my friends.  While many of us were raised by people who went to work 40 hours a week for their families, or struggled to start small businesses — a culture of entitlement has clearly taken over.  People no longer feel the need to work for the things they want, because they feel like they should just have them.  Our traditional conservative values of hard work, dedication, and entrepreneurship can no longer be taken for granted.  They are under attack by Armchair Liberals every day.  This new breed of American that watches hours of reality TV each week building a seething jealousy for the shiny glitzy life they feel they deserve, but have not earned.

NRA Proposal: Something That Would Actually Work!

Today the NRA spoke publicly for the first time since the Sandy Hook tragedy about how to prevent further mass shootings in our schools.  Rather than go along with more gun control or banning of “assault weapons”, as the Democrats have proposed — The NRA was actually interested in solving the problem, so they put forth a solution that could actually work.  “The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun” Wayne LaPierre said during the press conference, while proposing that every school in America have an armed policeman assigned to it.

While he spoke, shameless protestors from “Code Pink”, a left wing organization that promotes being a victim apparently, made every effort to interrupt Mr. LaPierre.  Shouting things like “The NRA has blood on its hands!” and “The NRA is killing our children!” — Code Pink should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.  No organization in America puts so much money towards gun safety for kids, and gun training for our law enforcement community in order to stop gun violence.

Republican Women: Who is S.E. Cupp?

Sarah Elizabeth Cupp (or S.E. Cupp for short) was born February 23, 1979 in a suburb of San Diego California, and has recently made a name for herself a top female Republican commentator on Foxnews, MSNBC, and even Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO. With her strong throaty voice, Cupp has argued opposite some of the staunchest liberals in the business.  Cupp has shattered glass ceilings as well as stereotypes, while she shows that female conservatives can be young, educated, opinionated, confident and yes — sexy as hell.  While she's been a target of the frothing-at-the mouth liberals on the left, we find her very charming and spot on the issues. Today on Conservative Island, we'd like to profile one of our favorite up and comers in the Republican politico-sphere.

(S.E. Cupp shows off her great taste in heels on Fox News)

As a student, S.E. Cupp attended Cornell where she attained a bachelor of arts in Art History.  After this cultured beauty worked on the school newspaper staff at Cornell, she attended New York University where she received a Master of Arts from the Gallatin School of Individualized Study with a concentration in Religious Studies.  Interestingly enough, like many young conservatives — Cupp considers herself to be non-religious, although she has made comments that she aspires to be a person of faith one day.

The Changing Face of The GOP: Tim Scott

Who is South Carolina’s Tim Scott? After his appointment to the US Senate this week by South Carolina governor Nikki Haley, he is now the first African-American senator from the state of South Carolina, and part of the changing face of the Republican Party.  Scott is a firm conservative voice with an amazing personal story who Republicans hope will be able to help sell conservatism to the black community and other minority groups.  It became clear in the recent election that Republicans need to put forward more female and minority candidates for office, and the leadership of the party has listened.

Tim Scott grew up dirt poor in Charleston, South Carolina and was raised by his mother after his parents divorced at age 7.  To say that times were tough would be an understatement.  His mother worked 16 hour days in order to make ends meet, and was Tim’s inspiration primary care giver and inspiration from an early age.
