Speaking as a disabled veteran of the culture wars,

I wholeheartedly endorse everything Frank J. Fleming talks about in this article, 5 Rules for Victory in the Culture War.

I watched “Christian culture go from something that was *almost* accepted by the mainstream (The Jesus Freak movement) into something that is openly derided and mocked by the trendsetters and culture mavens of our society. At some point along the way, we Christians decided we wanted to sell 10,000 records that said things in our language rather than sell 100,000 records that challenged others to believe in God.

Hopefully, by following Frank’s rather, er, frank advice, the culture of conservative independence can learn from the mistakes that Christians have made in the past.

A Tea Party Wedge into Silicon Valley?

Kudos to Orrin Hatch for taking the message of free markets to those who thought that Obama was pro-free enterprise and are now jaded enough to try something new, like freedom.

Small to mid-size companies are attractive targets to patent trolls because they don’t have the resources to defend themselves in court. And no fledgling company can ever expect to attract investment dollars if it’s mired in costly patent litigation. Indeed, patent trolls are crippling growth across all sectors of our innovation economy—from small businesses to America’s largest companies.

Freedom. It’s a beautiful thing.
