A Conscious Conservative Veterans Day

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the year 1918 hostilities were officially ended in Western Europe.  This signified the end of World War I.  Rural areas of the United States still did not have phone service.  People put bells on tall poles in their yards.  These bells acted as an information system.  My grandmother told me several times that one thing she would never forget was the sound of hundreds of bells ringing across the countryside.  The bells signified that the war was over and thousands of young men would be returning home.

The following year, "Armistice" was celebrated at Buckingham Palace and countries across the world passed legislation officially recognizing November 11th as a holiday.  Although official proclamations and ceremonies supporting the holiday began in 1919, the United States didn't make Armistice Day a legal holiday until 1938.  The original language states that November 11th is "a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace."

World War I was supposed to be the war to end all wars. Unfortunately, the seeds of World War II were planted in the peace of World War I.  Politicians and profiteers have continually found reasons to wage war in the almost hundred years since the "last war" ended.  The United States changed the original name of  Armistice Day to Veterans Day in 1954  

As you enjoy your day away from work, take in a parade or thank those who have served our country, please remember the original spirit of Veterans Day.  Let's stay dedicated to the cause of world peace so that those who so proudly and bravely serve our country will never be put in harm's way again.

Is Donald Trump a Conscious Conservative?

     As of now, the press is lauding Donald Trump as the front-runner for the Republican Party nomination for President of the United States.  This leads us to wonder if The Donald’s views are conservative.  Let’s put him to our Conscious Conservative test.  How does Mr. Trump score on the Conscious Conservative rating system.

---Does he respect private property?  I would say no.  If you read his books, he appears proud of using government to take away other people’s property in order to give it to him.  He feels the property is better in his hands than that of the current owners.  0 POINTS

---How about the Income Tax?  Mr. Trump falls in the “reform” camp.  He talks about lowering taxes and simplifying tax code, but not about significant change or repeal.  0 POINTS

---Where is Donald Trump on inheritance tax?  He has stated that he would like to greatly limit inheritance taxes.  This coul have something to do with his own situation.  5 POINTS

---What are his beliefs about confiscating private property for public use?  For public use?  He doesn’t mind confiscating property for private use.  0 POINTS

---What about banking?  Donald Trump seems more knowledgeable about the Federal Reserve and its role in the economy.  However, he appears more in the camp of controlling central banking rather than real reform or abolition.  He gets partial credit for that.  5 POINTS

---Donald Trump on free speech, assembly and travel-- It’s difficult to find where Mr. Trump or any of the candidates have said anything about these issues.  I’m going to deduct some points because he wants to build a wall around the United States.  Other than that, it’s hard to tell.   5 POINTS

---Is Donald Trump a Free Enterprise advocate?  He has no problem with taking advantage of crony-capitalism.  While researching this article, I’ve also ran across many instances where he has said it was wrong and he doesn’t support it.  I’ve not sure how much he’ll change it.  5 POINTS

---About Donald Trump and the free exchange of labor and services—He appears to give at least lip service to small business deregulation.  He has also stated that it is good for labor and management to freely negotiate pay structures.  This appears to be where he is strongest.  10 POINTS

---What is Donald Trump’s record on freedom of living quarters?  His long history as a real estate developer shows that he favors government intervention that favors him.  He has a particularly Machiavellian view towards zoning and building restrictions.  0 POINTS

---Donald Trump on education-- Mr. Trump favors vouchers and cutting federal involvement in the school system.  He still fears to favor publicly funded schools.  5 POINTS


That is a Moderate score that has him leaning towards Liberal views. 
How does he rank compared to other prominent politicians?

Ron Paul            90 POINTS
Rick Santorum  55 POINTS
Newt Gingrich   50 POINTS
Mitt Romney     35 POINTS
Donald Trump  35 POINTS
Barack Obama  20 POINTS

Mr. Trump is definitely not a Conscious Conservative.

An Invitation to Conscious Conservatives

From The Desk of Howard Galt:

I’m writing you from “on location” at the Membership Site Intensive and I’m learning strategies how to attract and convert high-end clients into long-term streams of income.

I know that may not mean much to you, but it does mean much to me and if you do me this favor, I’ll make it worth your while.

Let me explain:

I’m part of a Membership Team at the 
event and our goal is to get a lot
 of $197 Hangout registrants and win the competition we’re in.

I do get paid a referral commission for this request.

Will you support me?

I realize $197 may seem like a lot of money to ask for out of the blue, but it’s in exchange for getting an instant access link to the event I am at now which attendees paid $1K and more to attend.

Here’s the link if you’re ready:

Conscious Conservatives Can Back Atlas Shrugged WHO IS JOHN GALT?

The new Atlas Shrugged movie, “Who is John Galt?”, is heading into production with release slated for 2014. The Atlas Shrugged production team has started a Kickstarter campaign.  

The movie is actually already fully funded. The Atlas Shrugged Movie Kickstarter campaign is not so much about money as it is about marketing.

 Instead of a piece of the profit, the Atlas Shrugged production team is offering prizes to small supporters, like t-shirts a way onto the set or even being an extra in the film!

Atlas Shrugged Kickstarter FAQ

What is Kickstarter?

Kickstarter is an online platform which affords people the opportunity to contribute money to a project and earn a "reward" in return. 

Isn’t asking for charity antithetical to Ayn Rand’s philosophy?

Ayn Rand had no problem with someone giving money to a cause they care about. If someone deems a cause worthy and wants to donate money, they should be free to do it. Read more...

A Conscious Conservative View of The Phoenix Writers Club

     I had the pleasure yesterday of visiting the monthly meeting of The Phoenix Writers Club.  I met many wonderful people there and learned about all sorts of fascinating books.

     I learned about Durant's, a historic Phoenix restaurant, from Mabel Leo.

     Patricia Brooks talked about how to promote a 2nd. edition of a book.

     Graham Smith told some funny stories from his book.

     I met a wonderful lady who named Evangeline Colbert, who helps infertile couples and wrote a book of daily devotionals.

     There were so many other wonderful people there, that I don't have the space to mention them all.

     Thank you to everyone who was there.
