Weekly Friday Posts

January 26, 2018

My hard drive crashed, so there'll be no regular Friday post this week.  However, I did appear as a guest on The Annica Thomas Show on Tulsa's local talk radio station 1170 KFAQ to talk about my blog, conservatism, and how it relates to a broader Biblical Christian worldview.  You can catch that interview here.  Until next week,

We the People—Part 3 (Who Speaks for “The People?”)

Politicians are fond of talking about “the people.” In Part 1 of this series I ended with two questions that must be answered before we can reasonably expect politicians to address the needs of “the people”: Namely, who, exactly, are “the people”?

About Saving Elephants

Millennials defending and expressing conservative values.

 

Liberty has never been in a more precarious predicament.  As the Left sees a resurgence in socialism the Right is experiencing a rise in populism, nationalism, and authoritarianism.  Once the champions of conservative values, the Republican party is devolving into a group of self-serving career politicians with some even seeking to replace conservatism with blatant bigotry and reactionary fear.

 

If conservatism is to survive in the 21st century it will be up to Millennials.  How?  First by having a solid understanding of what it means to be a conservative and why that matters now more than ever.  And that's exactly what Saving Elephants is all about.  Here you will learn what values conservatives affirm and how conservatism differs from competing ideologies.  Only then will you be equipped to defend and express conservative values to a culture desperate for civil political dialogue, meaningful, vibrant communities, and purpose beyond material possessions.

It’s time the Republican party got back to its roots.  It’s time to re-ignite conservatism for Millennials!
