The Politics of Blind Faith: Ron Paul Revolution


A Paleo-Radical feeding frenzy is stirring the NewsReal waters following Ryan Mauro’s timely coverage of Dr. Ron Paul’s Letterman-joust with Ben Stein. The virulence of the Paulists’ emotional reactions and their allergic reaction to logical opposition of their world-view are indicative of a political faith that constitutes a serious, corrosive element to social stability.

NewsReal Sunday: Secular Spirituality


One of the most common issues that I run up against with the NewsRealBlog community is my contention that spirituality is not the exclusive province of people of faith, but that secularists can experience the same feelings as well. On more than one occasion I’ve said that the feelings that I experience when looking at [...]

For conservatives, in [...]

Dems rip Rasmussen for poor poll numbers – POLITICO.com


Democrats are turning their fire on Scott Rasmussen, the prolific independent pollster whose surveys on elections, President Obama’s popularity and a host of other issues are surfacing in the media with increasing frequency. The pointed attacks reflect a hardening conventional wisdom among prominent liberal bloggers and many Democrats that Rasmussen Reports polls are, at best, […]

Rebuttal: My, what Overwhelming Faith you Have in Your Government…


Today NewsReal featured a letter to the editor from progressive writer/activist Pat Ray in which he demanded NewsReal’s managing editor explain what conservatives’ plan is to help the middle class.
Dear Pat,
Thank you for your email responding to my colleague John Perazzo’s article. I noticed that you pretty much dismissed the facts reported in it as [...]

Then came a passage to which Sarah took great exception: “I cannot embrace this radical faith,” I wrote. “I feel no kinship with those who can cut short a human life without remorse; or with terrorists who target the innocent; or with adults who torment small children for the sexual thrill. I suspect no decent [...]

People who identify with the Left often ask the following question: How is it possible for decent human beings not to be progressive like us? How can they not share our concern for social justice or the better world we are attempting to create? The answers progressives give themselves are the following: Ignorance clouds the [...]

Another of my books, “The Politics of Bad Faith,” was recently published in paperback. It consists of my intellectual framework for rejecting the left, and therefore examines the main political issues confronting my generation — the Cold War, the question of socialism and whether the ideals of the left are implicated in the crimes that [...]
