Super Tuesday: The Silent Dissent of 1 in 4 Republicans

The first time I watched Donald Trump speak on a stage decorated in red, white, and blue was at the 2016 Republican National Convention. A young, twenty-something alternate delegate, I was thrilled to witness a part of our political system in action – but the then-nominee Mr. Trump, who sparked enthusiastic standing ovations from those…

Gender “Equality”: Pro-Trans v. Pro-Women Athletics

I’ve been envisioning this day for a while – the moment the Left would support two views that conflict with one another and have to somehow make a case for both. Will you be pro-trans? Or pro-women? Are you going to turn your back on female athletes for the sake of all-inclusiveness for transgender individuals?…

Big Tech, Censorship and Section 230

Since Twitter banned former President Trump, you can’t watch or read the news without hearing about Big Tech, censorship, the First Amendment, and Section 230.

My Freedom vs. COVID-19: Should I Cancel Thanksgiving?

One of the frequently cited reasons for suspecting election fraud is the fact that the GOP picked up seats in both the House and Senate, but lost the presidency. The thought is – if the GOP won in such an unexpected, but big way in Congress, how could that possibly not translate to the presidency?…

Counting Votes in Pennsylvania (Just the Facts)

Truthful, fact-based information is so important – and can be so hard to find in a time when social media gives everyone a microphone, and media comes with its own share of bias. Last year, I covered the Pennsylvania 2016 election results for The Resurgent (if you’re unfamiliar with the political landscape in our state,…

Republican Gifts for Conservatives on Your List

Feeling lost about what to get that conservative on your gift list? Maybe you’re a liberal or politically apathetic and clueless about what conservatives want, or maybe you’re just a conservative who’s just out of ideas. Regardless, you want to get the conservative on your list a gift he or she will appreciate. I’ve got…

An Open Letter to College Republicans

As the election 2016 madness continues on campus, I felt the need to write an open letter to all of you, as a fellow conservative millennial, to remind you of a few things and provide some inspiration.
