The Republican Gun
Its Aims, Range and Targets
The Republican Gun is a straight-shooting informal philosophical commentary on contemporary politics, economics, society, religion and art. It sights in on the world-transforming American republic by addressing fundamental issues with discussion and analysis, and by providing answers with laughter and happiness. Ample references to the meaning of life and humanity are included, as is the universe whenever that place happens to be useful.
The Republican Gun then targets public fraud — long faces — socialist losers — uncivil violence — and ideological BS.
The Republican Gun scopes out ideological camouflage of all kinds, and puts its crosshairs on even the cleverest of conceptual deceptions.
The Republic Gun is proud to be sponsored by the following classical brands of hard-hitting ammunition:
The Republican Gun is your sniper of lies — with magnum honesty! And we take no prisoners.
Join up with The Republican Gun and see the world! The universe is our border.

In order to clear my name in the minds of readers who might perceive my identification of an upper class as a damnation of wealth or the American Dream, I’d just like to say that that couldn’t be further from the truth. While I believe an isolated class of the United...read more
The subject of elites most opportunely appeared in your last post. I had intended to begin my response by scoping in on or at least winging a few shots at a book by an elite guy about an elite subject. And the subject is elitist. It’s elitism! But I had no...read more
While there’s a lot of possibilities for issues to address from your previous post, the persistent wave of paperwork and readings that the Fall semester gladly sends my way is an unfortunate, but not unwelcome, limitation on my available time. So, I think the most...read more
I’ve been reading around in another 600-page book. So many significant or even just pleasant books seem to be that length! Such thicknissism could be accused of the intent to induce shock in bibliophilically different or graphically literate humans. For many college...read more
In your previous piece you mention Professor John McWhorter’s point about the failings of the African American community being fueled by flaws present within their culture. This is an interesting sentiment that I’ve actually thought about for quite some time, though I...read more
As an example of the word-bewitching to which human consciousness is so successfully susceptible, consider what I was reading the other day. It was a typical 600-page history with a typical 100-page apparatus. And its subject was mid-19th century America. I read there...read more
During some of the very little downtime that I have while school is in session, I found myself reading a Washington Post article from 2016 by Elahe Izadi entitled “Black Lives Matter and America’s long history of resisting civil rights protesters.” What I found...read more
The average American, especially of the male persuasion, probably spends more time religiously watching sports than attending to religious ceremonies and concerns. More devotion and emotion go into his team winning a pennant than his soul winning immortality, or some...read more
At the end of your previous piece, you brought up three very well-known Presidents of the United States – Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. It’s easy to see why these three men are so legendary in American history. Jefferson was a...read more
A student of mine — the one who wears the Lenin medal: Comrade! — recently informed me in my office — with no white noise generators running — that he doesn’t now expect socialism to be achieved in the present generation. Okay. As for indicators of his character,...read more
Over the course of our time writing The Gun, we’ve explored issues of U.S politics, world politics, philosophy, as well as whole hosts of other assorted categories. These issues that we’ve discussed, and thrown back and forth to each other, are often times very...read more
As an illustration of the multivalence of human identity, and the unnecessary perplexities that can result from a failure to honestly heed and aptly characterize the human condition — call it the awareness of the total taxonomy of humanity — consider Da Vinci. I...read more
Although we indeed have covered the topic at length, some comments in your previous piece have caused me to revisit the issue of North Korea. And, my thoughts surround a question that I’ve thought about since the questioning of how to deal with North Korea started to...read more
While you’re squaring away your time management arrangements for the new fall semester and booting up for your next post, I’ll take this opportunity to address another topic sidelined a while back. Since its subject is nuclear weapons — and Ballistic Kim has just...read more
Before you’d mentioned it in your previous piece, I was unaware of Theodore Roosevelt’s distaste for the various labels that fall under the classification of “Hyphenated American.” After having that historical fact revealed to me, I took it upon myself to read...read more
