Conservative voices like Ben Shapiro, Michael Knowles, Andrew Klavan, Steven Crowder, Charlie Kirk, Matt Walsh, Dennis Prager, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, and many others began with a small voice and rose to prominence by speaking truth in the face of falsehoods and converted hundreds of blinded Leftists to a more informed way of thinking. One cannot begin writing with the expectation of Ben Shapiro-like success immediately. One begins writing with the goal of communicating truth in a convincing and persuasive way. If success results, that’s a blessing however if success never comes I can rest without the regret that I didn’t try to make a difference in the marketplace of ideas.
I’m writing from the perspective of a white 30-something male Christian conservative. Essentially, I’m at the bottom of the diversity totem pole. Three girls, a wife, and a modest income. I’m the embodiment of what Leftists hate about conservatives. While I didn’t grow up in a luxurious household being handfed grapes by a peasant boy named Raul while sprawled out on a couch made of fine linen, but I did grow up in a middle income household in southern California and I never remember wanting for anything. I always had food, a roof over my head, two parents, reliable transportation, clothing, etc… After high school, I grew up and went to college and graduated with a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) and a Masters in Biblical Studies while simultaneously working full-time. What does all this say about me? My parents stayed together for most of my childhood, I graduated high school and college, I got married and had children, bagged a job, and I don’t rely on the government for assistance. My parents largely set me up for success by being there and once I had the opportunity, I was largely successful through being responsible and hardworking. Plus, I’m white. That obviously helped. **sarcasm implied** That is the backdrop of my writings. My personal commitment to writing content that is filtered through a sound Christian worldview will allow my writings to reflect truth and resonate with conservative audiences but hopefully challenge Leftists readers along the way.
Just in case there is any ambiguity, I’m editorializing on this page. My intention is not to “report the news” directly. While I may be communicating true information about current events, I’m interpreting the information in a way that is consistent with my Christian worldview in order to communicate the philosophical, political, and theological implications of the content contained within the story. So, yes, I’m heavily partisan. I’m not ashamed of that. I don’t feel all ideas are good. Some are good and some suck. I will be strongly advocating for a Christian conservative viewpoint and strongly against the Leftist one.
Lastly, I appreciate feedback. Feel free to troll, Leftists. Put your ignorance on display for the world to see. I get great enjoyment out of seeing a classic Leftist meltdown.
