The Independent Voice for Conservative Values
and the Conscience of the Conservative Movement
Less Government is the Best Government
“The love of money is the root cause of evil. So much money is being spent to influence our elections. In one local race for a seat in the Oregon State Legislature the two candidates vying for this position have spent over half a million dollars for a part time job that pays less than $20,000 a year. All of this money is not good for our political system. It is not good for our country. Let's start a new tradition in America this year by not donating any money to politicians. Instead let's pray that all of the money currently being spent does not succeed in influencing the vote nor the counting of the votes. The candidate with the best ideas should win not the one with the most money. If we are going to save our republic than we have to be smarter than the media which is only interested in profiteering from our elections and the two corrupt political Parties which are only hopelessly dividing our country as they continue to divide the money." –Scott Rohter, 1951 - .
"By the time an unborn baby has fingers and toes, it already has a beating heart and a thinking brain. By that time it is a sentient human being capable of feeling pain and suffering, and possessing the will to live. By that time if an unborn child's mother hasn't made up her mind whether or not to "have" her baby, then she should lose her right to abort that pregnancy. Her right to terminate her baby's life should give way to the baby's right to live. At that point the mother's choice to abort that baby should be terminated and the baby's choice to live should be respected and protected. That baby has a right to life!" –Scott Rohter, 1951 - .
“The enabling hand of Government does not encourage people to do anything for themselves.” It does not help to make any one self-sufficient or self-sustaining. It only promotes laziness and dependency. It actually discourages Americans from making it on their own! It doesn’t promote excellence, but rather it fosters mediocrity. The so-called helping hand of Government actually robs Americans of personal initiative. It is what President Herbert Hoover referred to as the dead hand of government. It discourages self-motivation, deprives us of self-respect, and produces a nation of under achievers and co-dependents! Think about that the next time you want to apply for some kind of governmental assistance! To paraphrase another former American President, “We need citizens who are less concerned about what the Government can do for them, and more concerned about what they can do for their country!” –Warren G. Harding, 1921-1923.
“Our American elections have become primarily a cash cow for the media!” They are the source of a vast transfer of wealth from those seeking power, to those who already have power! Every two years there is an exhaustive political fundraising effort, focused on soliciting contributions from voters, in order to get our favorite candidates elected! This money temporarily goes into the campaign coffers of those running for political office, but ultimately it winds up in the hands and in the bank accounts of those who own the media: ABC, CBS, NBC, NY Times, Washington Post, et.al, in order to buy the face time necessary to get the candidate’s message out to the voters. In other words, it goes into the hands of the liberals and progressives who own and operate the media! The main beneficiaries of our political campaigns therefore are the liberals and progressives who run the media and ‘Madison Avenue’.
It’s too bad that the United States Constitution can’t stand up and fight for itself, because if it could, it would probably do a much better job of defending itself, than we Americans are doing in defending it! And if we aren’t willing to stand up and defend it, then how can we expect it to help us when we need its protection? How can we expect it to stand up to the constant liberal onslaught, or the relentless, progressive re-interpretation of it, without our help?
“You have to buy freedom from time to time. You purchase it every year with another payment of your taxes! If you ever stop paying taxes then you will quickly see how directly your freedom is linked to your money. Then you will know the connection between money, taxes, and freedom!” –Scott Rohter

“The power to tax is the power to destroy.” So said Calvin Coolidge, President 1923-1929. If we allow Washington to balance the budget by raising our taxes instead of cutting their spending, then we are letting them punish us for what they have done wrong. Then we may also expect to get more punishment from Washington in the future, and more taxes to destroy us whenever they do wrong again!
Think About This
Our Navy Seals were ordered into combat wearing head cameras when they went into Osama Bin Laden’s compound in Abottabad, Pakistan to take out Bin Laden. Was that because our national political leaders in Washington didn’t completely trust those brave soldiers who were willing to risk their own lives? Probably not. Was it because they wanted to play arm-chair generals, or second guess the soldiers on the ground? Possibly, or did they just want to see the proof for themselves that Osama Bin Laden was actually dead! I believe that our soldiers were outfitted with head cameras to provide the proof, and all of the necessary evidence, that Osama Bin Laden was killed. And just like Hillary Clinton, Leon Panetta, and the rest of President Obama’s National Security Team, average Americans deserve to see the evidence too!
This country is different than all of the other countries of the world, or at least it was supposed to be! We are an actual republic! We are not just a republic in name only! And as such, the citizens of this great republic deserve to be treated like actual citizens by their elected leaders and not just like fools and stooges! Otherwise we will become a 'Rino Republic', like all of the rest!

If a potential Republican Presidential candidate like Chris Christy, Mitch Daniels, Mike Pence, Rick Perry, or even Sarah Palin are looking forward to a possible run for the WhiteHouse in 2016, but they are unwilling to come forward right now, and they are content instead to let this country be ruled for another four years by Barack Obama, then they either don’t understand the grave danger that our country is in, or they don’t believe that we are in any danger! In either case they are not fit for the job now, or then, and they are not worthy of our vote in 2016!

This website is intended to be used as an arsenal of truth, from which you can draw sustenance, and arm yourself for the ideological and political struggles to come. You don’t want to go to a shoot-out having only a small knife to defend yourself! I advise you to read as many articles as you can, as thoroughly as you can. Perhaps read them over more than once if you like, and arm yourself with the truth, and be prepared for what is obviously going to come! - Editor

When the Democrats talk about creating jobs they are actually talking about growing the U.S. Federal Government, by creating more government jobs!

The movement driving change in America is NOT the Conservative Movement. It is the Socialist Movement of the Far Left! As the Democratic Party keeps moving farther and farther to the left, the more moderate 'Lefties' leave the Democratic Party and become Republicans. By registering as Republicans they are changing the face and the character of the Republican Party! The Republican Party isn’t changing them! They are changing it! And they are moving the Republican Party farther to the left too! Maybe they should consider staying in the Democratic Party and trying to move it farther to the right instead!
Think About ThisI don’t have anything against Mexicans coming to the USA, but there is a very big country south of our border called Mexico, and if Mexicans aren’t willing to live there, then who the heck will?... Besides if you asked them, most of the illegal immigrants in our country would tell you that they would rather live in their own country if it was safe, and if they could earn a decent living to support themselves and their family!
Think About ThisThe reason not to tax the rich anymore is not because they shouldn’t pay anymore, or because they aren’t paying enough! It is because we shouldn’t give the Government anymore money!
Think About This
The next time you visit your local home improvement center, just look around you at all the shelves, all fully stocked with products for sale, and ask yourself one question. Why is there nothing on the shelves that is made by the United States Government? That’s because the United States Government doesn’t really make anything. They certainly don’t make anything that anyone wants to buy, just useless regulations and red tape that virtually nobody wants!
The free market is a wonderful thing, if it is allowed to function properly, and capitalism is a powerful motivator when it is unleashed! There are still even a few things on the shelves that are actually made in America, but there is absolutely nothing on the shelves that is made by the United States Government. Furthermore, if we don’t get the U.S. Government out of the business of making more regulations, and regulating American businesses to death, then pretty soon there won’t actually be anything left on the shelves that is made in the U.S.A., because all of our American factories will be run out of the country, or completely run out of business in order to comply with stricter clean air and clean water standards, and higher energy efficiency requirements! The key to life is balance. Proper balance is the key to health, and it is also the key to a healthy environment, and a healthy economy!
Think About ThisOn the question of abortion, it is not enough to just do the right thing in your own personal life. The Federal Government must set minimum standards of acceptable behavior, with respect to protecting human life in every state! This is not a States Rights issue! You shouldn’t be allowed to have an illegal abortion performed in one state, and not in another. You shouldn’t be able to have an illegal abortion by just walking across state lines! This isn’t a States Rights issue! If that were the case, than one of the first things that you would see upon entering certain states is the worst thing that you could ever see upon entering a state! There would be abortion clinics and Planned Parenthood centers all lined up along the state line competing for business, and large dumpsters containing the remains of aborted fetuses. Think about it!
Think About ThisIn the United States we have a two Party system. There is the Big Business Party (Republicans), and the Big Government Party (Democrats). The biggest business of all is big government, and the biggest kind of government is Socialism, or to put it another way, the biggest business is a monopoly, and the biggest monopoly of all is Socialism! The average business monopoly just controls a small part of the economy. A Socialist government however, controls everything that goes on in an entire country, and eventually in the whole world if you let it!
Think About ThisFreedom and limited government are like a perfect match made in Heaven. They are like two partners joined in marriage, who are working together toward a common goal. We can’t keep freedom alive without effective restraints upon government power! We can’t have freedom without limited government! One cannot exist without the other. By the same token, we can’t have freedom with un-limited government! One comes at the expense of the other.
Think About ThisA Primary Election is like a big political refining pot, or a ‘political blast furnace’. You have to put the heat to the metal in order to get out all of the impurities. This ensures that the metal that comes out at the end, is the strongest possible metal, fit for its intended purpose, with the least amount of defects! Our political candidates are like the imperfect metal, or the crude ore that goes into the furnace. If we don’t turn up the heat on them, then we won’t know what kind of stuff they are made of, or what kind of political office they are suited for, and they won’t be made any stronger! If we don’t scrutinize their political records in the Primary, then we won’t wind up with the strongest possible candidates to run in the General Election!
Instead of voting for people who truly reflect our conservative values, we always wind up voting for politicians who only pander to us around election time! Once they are safely back in Washington, they continue to do just what they have always done on Capitol Hill. That’s why Washington is sarcastically referred to as the “Swamp on the Hill.” In other words our Republican candidates talk conservative values and limited government only when they want something from us during an election campaign, but when it’s all over it’s back to business as usual in Washington D.C.
It's time for a sea change!
At first our Republican candidates sound very conservative during the Primary. Then they begin to talk more liberal during the General Election, when they are running against their Democratic opponents. And finally, when they are done lying to get elected, they do whatever the heck they want, just like they have always done! It is time for a new political paradigm!
“To try to guarantee Our Nation’s survival is an essential obligation of every American citizen who loves their country. The definition of the word preserve is “to keep safe from harm, injury, and destruction; in other words to safeguard or protect”. If we fail to protect our own Nation and our own Constitution from assault, then we deserve whatever we get! If we lose the connection to our Nation’s founding fathers and to her guiding principles, then we are guaranteeing the slow decline of what is arguably the world’s oldest, finest and longest surviving example of a free republic successfully governing itself, while still providing a high degree of individual liberty and justice for all.
Our system of government has never before been equaled either in past or present history! But unfortunately Americans continue to shoot ourselves in the foot every two years by electing the same old type of unprincipled and unqualified leaders over and over again, who then take advantage of this trust that we place in them. We keep expecting to get different results each time, but I can tell you this. It just ain’t gonna happen!” Right now the best example of this kind of untrustworthy leader is Barack Obama. He must be defeated and removed from office if we are to preserve our country. The Republic must be restored, and the Constitution and respect for law and order must be restored to this land!” - Scott Rohter, August, 2012
