You are a hardcore conservative, believing in free market capitalism on the one hand, and active government over certain personal and/or military matters on the other. You are probably a Republican, but may not consider the Republican Party principled enough. You might prefer the Constitution Party.

Fun Reads for Radical Conservatives


Imagine liberals out of power. You can do it with my nifty collection of conservative utopias.

Or, if you prefer, you can gloat at the failins of the left with some lefty dystopias and social liberal dystopias.

Political Parties and Campaigns

The Republican Party

And be sure to read the Republican Party Platform.

The Constitution Party

See also the Constitution Party platform.

The American Solidarity Party is a Christian Democratic party which is pro life across the board. They call for generous welfare benefits funded by ground rents, and for backing off of some of the more punitive aspects of our justice system. But unlike most left wing parties, they would make abortion illegal and support religious freedom even outside church buildings.

Ideas for Radical Conservatives

Rules for Reactionaries Is it too late for conservatism? Maybe it's time to be a reactionary instead. Roll back the clock instead of slowing the decline. For a long game manual on how to do just that learn the Rules for Reactionaries.

Green and Free Are you a conservative who likes nature? Would you like to pass along our natural inheritance along with our way of life? Then check out Green and Free, an Eco-Conservative coalition in the making.

(The ideas therein can also be useful if you are trying to recruit younger people into conservatism, or craft a conservative vision which has a chance in urban areas.)

Old fashioned conservativism.

Cato Institute Individual Liberty, Limited Government, Free Markets, and Peace. Good research site.

The above two links are anti-interventionist on foreign policy. If you do believe in active military intervention, here is a link on how to do it right: rangevoting.org. Our military can get the job done in short order when it comes to taking out evil dictators. Establishing a stable democratic government afterwards is another matter. The problem is the voting system. Neither plurality voting and proportional representation are up to the task when a country is deeply divided. Range voting has far more promise. (It worked rather well for the Vikings and the Spartans.)

Law of Liberty From your answers it appears you believe that government should actively enforce some aspects of personal morality. If you think that such enforcement should be based on Christian (or Jewish) principles, here are some in-depth Bible studies on the matter for your consideration.

In Old Testament times, the people of Israel were supposed to aggressively enforce some aspects of personal morality. Adultery, idol worshipping, homosexuality, and Sabbath-breaking were all death penalty offenses. But in other ways, the Old Testament Law was quite libertarian, more so than U.S. law today. Recreational drugs were legal under Biblical Law. Prostitution was legal under certain circumstances. There were no prisons. Penalties for property crimes were in many ways less harsh than U.S. law. Indeed, the Bible contains a recipe for something close to anarcho-capitalism!

But should Christians be enforcing the Old Testament Law? Even in ancient times, the Law was enforced only in the Holy Land. The New Testament calls for forgiveness, not enforcement.

The Power of Mercy This is not to say that Christians should water down calls for righteousness, merely that they have less mandate to enforce righteousness by force than ancient Israelites. One can make a good argument that Christian standards of morality should be higher than the mandates of Old Testament Law.

The Narrow Gate

However, this is not a justification for enforcement by The State, because Christianity is not for everyone. The Bible says so. And when Christians overlook this important fact, they are tempted to either water down the meaning of Christian or resort to forcible conversions. But if not are all called, what is the fate of unbelievers? And if not all are called to be Christians, how can certain Christian notions of reward and punishment be fair? The answers might surprise you.

God's Welfare System

If you are tired of the expense, bureaucracy and subsidized immorality of the current welfare state, check out God's Welfare System. This article shows shows how the poor were supposed to be taken care of during Old Testament times. Many of the ideas are useful to this day, ideas on how to help the poor without subsidizing irresponsibility.

Free Money for All Would you like to fire a hundred thousand bureaucrats? Would you like to do something about the hoards of illegal immigrants? Would you like to restore federalism and bring most domestic government back down to the state level? Then replace the federal welfare state with free money for all U.S. citizens. As a bonus, you'll make marriage economically worthwhile for the poor again.
