I posted this in general forum a few weeks ago and received no responses. American Renaissance will be holding their annual conference this year at Montgomery Bell State Park April 5-7. This is the second year in a row at this venue. A look at race, culture, and politics with zero political correctness.

Roger McGrath — “The Warrior Heroes of Our Tribe.” Professor McGrath is a historian of the West, California, and the United States. He is the author of Gunfighters, Highwaymen, & Vigilantes, and has appeared as a commentator on documentaries aired on the History Channel, A&E, Discovery, and TNT.

Byron Roth — “Off-shoring, Mass Immigration and American Wage Stagnation: Why Education is No Solution.” Dr. Roth is Professor Emeritus of Psychology at Dowling College. He is the author of Prescription for Failure: Race Relations in the Age of Social Science. His latest book is The Perils of Diversity: Immigration and Human Nature, which Jared Taylor calls “a brilliant diagnosis of the crisis we face.”

Jim Goad — “Happy Being on the Wrong Side of History.” Mr. Goad has written more than 150 columns for Taki’s Magazine, and is the author of four books, including The Redneck Manifesto. He has worked as a radio host, a country singer, and a cabdriver.

115 views and no one wants to comment or even troll on this convention. We have a political convention with national and international speakers in our backyard in middle TN and there is zero interest on the political forum?

Granted the SPLC labels them a hate group but the SPLC also labels the Tea Party, Alex Jones, and the Constitution Party as non-Islamic domestic terrorist groups.

Sounds like a pretty cool conference to me.

I find it's harder to mobilize or organize conservatives because they are not our to advocate for issues. The root of conservatism is just the desire to be LEFT ALONE.

It's why we always lose or compromise our liberties away. The other side is out to change something. We simply want to preserve it.

They are motivated and driven. We just stand back and bitch.

Crappie is right. I learned long ago to quit wasting my time but some times there are some tings I feel strongly about like the Second Amendmnet. We "warned" people the day would come and now it's here they still want to blame others and that's why I come on here so strongly. That's the one thing I'm not giving up. Anything else, let the ones that set on their butts suffer along with the ones that voted for it.

Yep Crappie is right. Conservatives want to take care of themselves and they don't expect others to be responsible for their actions. Just leave us alone, we'll be fine and we'll deal with it, whatever "IT" may be.

Liberals ae still defining the meaning of "IT" according to their previous God, Bill CLinton. Liberals embrace government. It's their religion and their purpose. The bigger the better. Liberals want no responsibility for their own actions and they want someone else to take care of them and they want no obligations. They also want as much of your money as they can "legally" take from you. And if it ain't legal just wait til the next president and next congress take office and they'll find a new way to take more from you.

Here's an essay on democracy - the cons and cons. Good, long read that explains many of our current problems.


http://www.amren.com/features/2013/03/is-democracy-possible-in-america/


Mr. de Benoist begins by pointing out that “democracy” is so mystical a term that virtually every government on earth claims to be “democratic.” The communist countries of East Europe were “democratic republics,” and African dictators claim to be democrats.


Mr. de Benoist notes that it has long been common to scoff at the idea of letting ordinary people have a role in government. As Hyppolyte Taine (1828-1893) wrote, “Ten million ignorant men cannot constitute a wise one.” Ernest Renan (1823-1892) wrote that elections mean a “destiny committed to the caprice of an average of opinion inferior to the grasp of the most mediocre sovereign called to the throne by the hazards of heredity.” René Guenon believed that “the opinion of the majority cannot be anything but an expression of incompetence.”


The best known American exponent of this view was H.L. Mencken, who wrote, “If it were actually possible to give every citizen an equal voice in the management of the world . . . the democratic ideal would reduce itself to an absurdity in six months. There would be an end to all progress.”


Many people therefore call democracy a dictatorship of mediocrity. Since politicians must appeal to the masses, elections throw up third-rate men. And because politicians must be reelected they never think in the long term and can never take necessary but unpopular steps.


In a democracy, the majority is supposed to rule, but Mr. de Benoist notes that this is an expression of numbers, not wisdom. “Quality cannot stem from quantity,” he writes. “The idea that authority, a quality, may stem from numbers, a quantity, is rather disturbing.”


No matter what is claimed in democracy’s name, it is actually a system of rule by minorities, since only elected officials actually rule. Moreover, they routinely break their election promises and are always free to flout the wishes of their constituents. Mr. de Benoist writes that when a voter hands over his decision-making power to a representative, “he is making use of his liberty only to renounce it.” This legitimizes the power of politicians over a passive population.


Even Jean-Jacques Rousseau scoffed that “the English people thinks it is free; it is greatly mistaken, it is free only during the election of members of Parliament; as soon as they are elected, it is enslaved, it is nothing.”


At the same time, money rules politics. A poor man can hardly become a candidate, much less win an election. And because having power is the best way to raise money, the political class perpetuates itself. Moreover, Mr. de Benoist notes that “the tyranny of money clearly goes hand-in-hand with corruption and financial scandals.” Money proves the bankruptcy of the process itself: Most of it is spent on television advertising, which is the most insulting form of political discourse.


We already live under a “soft” despotism that would be the envy of Louis XIV or Ivan the Terrible. No king could make his subjects account for every penny of income and then dictate exactly what percentage to hand over in taxes. No “absolute” monarch ever told his subjects where they could have a smoke, or tell him how long his employees were to work. Our government even claims the right to kill American citizens overseas without a trial; it need only call them “enemy combatants.”
