Hey GOP: What Will You Do Without Your Young Activists?

Hey GOP: What Will You Do Without Your Young Activists? Thumbnail

As I walked out of my last Texas state convention, I remember the overwhelming feeling of loss.  I got in my cab and made my way to the airport to fly home and all I could do was stare out my window and begin to follow what I could see as a clear downward projection [...]

Conservative Women Abandon The Gutless Wonders Of Republican Party Thumbnail

I remember the good ol’ days when our party was simply worried about losing the Hispanic vote….perhaps 13% of the voting population.  And now, as Republicans try to create outraged offense from a Hillary staffer towards Catholics via Wikileaks, Trump (not a staffer) has systematically destroyed every demographic from Hispanic, to blacks, to Jews, to [...]

Trump And The Apostate Church: The Destruction Of A Testimony

Trump And The Apostate Church: The Destruction Of A Testimony Thumbnail

I know this post will generate a lot of mail that I don’t necessarily feel like dealing with.   But there are those moments that are so compelling to one’s heart that they must handle it.  So here is my raw moment of honesty… I’m really struggling right now.  Not with politics.  Politics is as ugly [...]

GOP Leaders: Disown, Disavow, Unendorse, Pull Funding, Issue Apology to Nation! Thumbnail

I am ashamed and grieved at my party.   I’ve tenuously held on to it with hopes that after this election there might be something worth salvaging. But this has stopped being about the election.  This is how you destroy a party.  It’s a front row seat to the death of a public conscience.  It’s the [...]

Looking For Someone To Blame: Reince Had One Job And He Blew It

Looking For Someone To Blame: Reince Had One Job And He Blew It Thumbnail

Reince Preibus is a man hellbent on finding somebody to blame when this political disaster of an election year is over.  Reince had an easy job.  Keep the carpets clean and clear for just about any man or woman to win our nomination and wipe out the weakest and most damaged candidate that the Democrats [...]

School Choice: A Civil Right and a Necessity in the 21st Century Thumbnail

In the 21st century, a quality education is critical to being able to survive in the new economy. By 2020, 65 percent of all jobs in the American economy will require some sort of post-secondary education, according to the Georgetown Center for Education and the Workforce.  But if there is a lack of a quality [...]

Message From A #NeverTrumper: There Will Be No Joy In Either Win On Election Night Thumbnail

For the first time in my adult life I have no dog in this political fight.  It’s a bewildering feeling having two maniacal and wicked candidates so similar in nature and policy and equally detrimental to the future of this nation’s democracy that I can't find a lesser of evil.  No, this #NeverTrumper recognizes that [...]

Trump Ruined Our Conservative War Against Hillary

Trump Ruined Our Conservative War Against Hillary Thumbnail

I was a young girl when Bill Clinton was elected President.  We were fresh off years of Republican reign and I was in a home that found our loss infuriatingly unacceptable.  I was raised on a steady diet of Tex-Mex and Rush Limbaugh.  I rarely know any of the popular songs from the 90's because [...]

Everyone Has A Choice: Stand And Be Counted

Everyone Has A Choice: Stand And Be Counted Thumbnail

Without a stage full of fellow candidates with which to hide his lack of depth, substance, and intelligence behind a barrage of middle school insults, Trump is left standing alone.  A shallow man lacking in self-control and thoughtful logic, implosion could only be imminent.  Like a terribly behaved child left to their own devises, the [...]

Dear Democrats: Regain Your Dignity, Join #NeverTrump With Your Own #NeverHillary Thumbnail

Being on a national #NeverTrump list, and sharing it with far more prominent Republicans than I am, has ensured that my emails and twitter mentions have stayed consistently busy over the last many weeks.  I’m used to my share of mail as I’ve never been a political wallflower, but being thrust on a larger platform [...]

Principles Betrayed: But New Conservative Leadership To Emerge From The Ashes Thumbnail

This has been the most grueling election of my life.  Granted, I’m not that old.  However, I can assure you that through the years of being in the political arena my convictions have been tested.  But, I’ve never been tested like I’m being tested now. I’ve never been more aware of how easy taking the [...]

Could Carly Be Trump’s Achilles’ Heel?

Could Carly Be Trump’s Achilles’ Heel? Thumbnail

In a scene stealing move this afternoon, Ted Cruz drained some of the wind from the Trump sails and his big wins last night by announcing Carly Fiorina as his VP sidekick. Carly is no stranger to bulldog politics.  Before this primary season, Carly was best known in political circles for taking on the unenviable [...]

5 Signs You May Be The Uninformed Electorate That Our Founders Warned Us About Thumbnail

We will go down in history as breeding a generation of idiots.  We already know that our public schools are largely a failure to our children.  History, when it's actually taught, has often been rewritten and has resulted in a whopping 38% of Americans who are unable to pass a simple citizen test. Our Founders [...]

No Trump, Post Abortion Women Need A Hand Of Grace- Not Punishment Thumbnail

I ended the day yesterday just throwing my hands in the air and wondering if there will be anything left worth salvaging from this party's platform once Donald Trump gets done using it as his personal experiment.  I've vacillated between anger and frustration this season and walked away last night with a broken heart at [...]

Hey Trump Supporters, An ‘Almost Win’ Doesn’t Keep You From A Contested Convention Thumbnail

Elitists never think rules apply to them.  The man born with a silver spoon in his mouth is now swimming in an unfamiliar pond, full of fish not beholden to his every whim and demand.  And he’s not exactly sure how to handle it outside of vague and threatening warnings to the country. Despite the [...]

Talk Radio And Trump: The Duo Responsible For Destruction of Conservatism Thumbnail

I have made it no secret on how I feel that Talk Radio has partnered with Donald Trump and betrayed the conservative movement and how the "bastions of conservative truth tellers" have exchanged their principles for ratings.  While I'm a frequent talk radio guest and appreciate many of the finer things that they have done [...]

CINO: Christians In Name Only -Abandoning Biblical Principles To Vote Trump Thumbnail

I am well aware of the backlash that I’m about to receive over this piece.  And it will be accompanied by a flood of quoted-out of context Bible verses that people have used for millenniums in an effort to excuse bad behavior from consequence or scrutiny.  So, if your fingers were poised and ready to [...]

Rubio Slayed The Trump Dragon And It Was Glorious!

Rubio Slayed The Trump Dragon And It Was Glorious! Thumbnail

Rubio, a man on fire and with absolutely nothing to lose finally, singlehandedly, delivered us the debate we've all been waiting for. For months, Trump has sailed through this campaign while spending hours with the biggest heads in conservative media; Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, and practically turning a side gig as Sean Hannity’s new co- [...]

Ann Coulter: The New Leader of Every Racist Gutterbug in America

Ann Coulter: The New Leader of Every Racist Gutterbug in America Thumbnail

Even after years of being involved in different levels and perspectives of politics, I remember starting out this political season just a mere few months ago on a naive footing.  Throughout my adult life and looking back through the lens of history, I believed wholeheartedly that there would never be a Republican candidate that I [...]

Trump: Debate Revealed A Man Unhinged By Pressures Of Winning At All Costs Thumbnail

In a time where Republicans have become weary of debates, we are entering a season where they are more important than they’ve ever been.  It’s crunch time.  Voters are ready to pull the levers and many are solidifying last minute decisions.  Candidates have refined their messages and honed in on their talking points.  And now, [...]

Feminists Icons Insult Liberal Women For Daring To Vote Outside Their Lady Parts Thumbnail

Usually the feminazi’s keep their general focus towards keeping their followers feeling victimized, their men battered, and conservative women demonized.  But this week, I think liberal women were shocked to be targeted by their own leaders of Female Group Think—their icons, Gloria Steinem and Madeline Albright, both of whom came out rebuking liberal women for [...]

Shattered Trust: ‘Leaders’ And Their Mea-Culpa’s On Trump- Too Little, Too Late! Thumbnail

To my revulsion, I've seen much backpedaling in my social media timeline this week from talking heads and conservative leaders who spent the last many months lauding, applauding, defending and shilling for this Trojan Horse in our party, Donald Trump.  They've used their pulpits, whether on the air or through online media, to extol the [...]

The Ultimate Christmas Challenge: A Life Changing Experience

The Ultimate Christmas Challenge: A Life Changing Experience Thumbnail

Note: I wrote this piece a couple of years ago but after hearing so much positive feedback, I feel it's time to bring it out again for this Christmas. Thanksgiving is over and many of us have thrown ourselves headlong into Christmas.  You've already braved the crowds, set up the tinsel and tree, the lights [...]

Misguided Compassion: The Fight For $15 Minimum Wage

Misguided Compassion: The Fight For $15 Minimum Wage Thumbnail

While it may be true that many (perhaps most) of those who are involved in the "Fight for $15" hope to personally benefit from such a wage hike, there are also many others who support the cause out of sympathy and compassion. Accusing them of greed or laziness is therefore inaccurate and harmful to the [...]

Finding Joy In The Sorrow: My Sweet Mama and Alzheimer’s

Finding Joy In The Sorrow: My Sweet Mama and Alzheimer’s Thumbnail

Note: Friends, this is a deeply personal post.  I understand that this is different than what I would normally share on Liberty Juice but I've felt compelled to write this for awhile.  This is for my mom. It's in the middle of the night, my house is quiet, my family is sleeping and as inevitably [...]

Letter To GOP Leadership: Put Out The Fire and Lead!

Letter To GOP Leadership: Put Out The Fire and Lead! Thumbnail

Monday I posted to Facebook a piece entitled Dear 'Real Conservatives, Let's Have a Talk from the Collision Blog. It was a genius (yes, with a clearly frustrated tone) piece that well articulated some of the asininity happening within our party and mainly a reaction to the House Freedom Caucus for waging a war without [...]

Amazing Grace: Helping Women Through Post-Abortion Guilt And Anguish Thumbnail

Abortion is a terribly controversial topic.  Bring it up in a crowded room like social media and be prepared to have the rabid Planned Parenthood supporters attack you in the most vicious and profane way, most of which have bio's reflecting self descriptions like "Atheist, dog lover, HIV tester, condom dispenser, fetus destroying, tree hugger."  [...]
