“Though liberals do a great deal of talking about hearing other points of view, it sometimes shocks them to learn that there are other points of view.” William F. Buckley wrote this famous statement in 1959, in the book “Up from Liberalism.” This was written during the early years of the American conservative movement. His quote rang true at the time it was written and continues to ring true today, even on the campus of...

Respected Friends, Colossians 2:8 instructs us to “be careful not to allow anyone to captivate you through an empty and deceptive philosophy, according to human tradition, according to the elementary principles of the world, and not according to Christ.” I was brought up believing that to love Jesus is to be conservative, but as I have grown closer to God, I have begun to see that much of the conservative Christian ideology I was indoctrinated with is...

In my time in politics, I have seen lots of interesting things. One of the most interesting things is the people it attracts. It attracts a wide spectrum of people, ranging from those who exemplify virtues to those who exemplify vices. One virtue I always look for in candidates I support, and is mandatory for candidates I work or volunteer for, is integrity. Politics as a field is notorious for lacking this virtue. Integrity is...

Political and moral opinions should be taken seriously. They’re opinions about the sorts of things that demand passionate belief and deserve fervent defense. If you’re not committed to your political beliefs, why hold them? And if you’re not going to act on them, are you really committed? Ever get a “˜common sense’ intuition that most here lean liberal?
