Here are some good blog posts from Jillian Becker. She is a novelist and runs the blog "Atheist Conservative" which is a good site. She is influenced by Rand to a certain extent.


The Left's Ultimate Agenda...

Doug Bandler's picture
Submitted by Doug Bandler on Wed, 2012-12-19 00:33

...Is the extermination of all non-Leftists. Actually the Left's agenda is the same as Islam's agenda. It is the conquest of a culture and subjugation or slaughter of all dissenters.

Why Ron Paul is a traitorous, libertarian idiot

Submitted by Doug Bandler on Fri, 2011-09-30 21:38

Anwar Awlaki, the U.S. born al Qaeda leader whose writings inspired Muslims, including the U.S. Army Major Nidal Hasan of the Fort Hood massacre, to commit terrorist attacks against Americans, has been killed by a CIA drone attack in Yemen. But Ron Paul, that potential savior of America according to some SOLO posters, has already condemned the Obama administration for "assassinating" this man without a trial.

Breivik

Breivik was influenced mainly by cultural Conservatism which closely resembles Paleo-Conservatism. Breivik's main concern was that white, Christian Europe was in danger of being destroyed by two fundamental enemies: 1) Islam and Muslims and 2) the Left. Breivik was right in that regard.
