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.
Ready on the right? Ready on the left? Ready in the center? Then let’s lock and load and —
Within The Republican Gun you will find discussions on varied philosophical, political and social subjects present in the world, historical events that shaped current affairs and potential future ramifications caused by the lot.

Before I get to your latest post, I want to recall two important points, one from my last reply, and the other from yours the time before. These two points are, one, the recent discovery of a culture that systematically practices male genitalia mutilation; and, two,...read more
“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for...read more
It seems to me that I might have once read a book possibly entitled The Dark Side of Camelot maybe by Seymour M. Hersh plausibly published under the imprint of Back Bay Books tentatively by Little, Brown and Company putatively in the year 1997. That book reminds me of...read more
On August 16, 1971, John Dean sent a memorandum to Lawrence Higby. Both Dean and Higby were players within the Nixon Administration at the time, as Dean was the White House Counsel and Higby was an assistant to the White House Chief of Staff, H. R. Haldeman. Printed...read more
The power of words to form and formulate the ideas by which we humans see the world with the taxonomy of our concepts can be disregarded in the same way bad eyesight can be left uncorrected. But the absurdity of the latter in a techno-affluent culture is so patent,...read more
Due to the more conversational and spontaneous aspects of The Republican Gun, the readers are often treated to a bit of, as I like to call it, “inside baseball”; a look behind the scenes at the writing process and our ordinary lives. So, yes, as you mentioned in your...read more
While you’re in the midst of moving, I thought I’d catch up on a few back items which my current reading has brought to mind. At the beginning of a recent post, you referred to a poet named Ruth Stone who, appropriately enough, with a metaphor said if you see a fast...read more
Throughout your online conversation you have noted the interesting juxtaposition between Soviet communism/Marxism and American republican capitalism. For Marx, the end goal of the Communist revolution was to end history (a la Hegel) and to seemingly establish a serene...read more
If you’re bothered by the royal family of Britain now, you should have been alive — I mean an adult: a being of passion reason — when Shy Di was regular news in the major media, and permanent news in the grocery tabloids. I should know. I’m very fond of food. And...read more
In an effort to stay solely focused on the topic of free speech in my last bit of writing, I neglected another point I wished to address. So, I’d like to gather up that free-floating thought before it’s swept away, never to be remembered. The American poet Ruth...read more
First, let me address a few of the topics left over from last time, then I’ll consider your fearsome fears concerning Attila the Trump. But first I will admire your phrase, “in contempt of conversation.” It’s a great description of the loud silence that most...read more
I’d first like to speak to my previous thoughts on the likes of groups such as white nationalists and ultraconservative Muslims. While I do still hold to my conclusion that the main thrusts of these two ideological groups are in opposition to what I see as the core...read more
This just in. I’ve been lately reading around in a large volume of the late Christopher Hitchens’ essays entitled Arguably, which is arguably not a title. But since Chris isn’t here anymore, I won’t argue with him. The dead deserve the dignity of a decent repose. ...read more
Even in the most well-planned and thought out conversations – especially of the political variety – the constant passion-fueled flow of ideas, rebuttals, and agreements take the discussion into places that weren’t initially accounted for. If you add in the fact that...read more
Conversation is like gliding. In both activities, you look for thermals — or hot air! — upon which to get a lift. When you succeed, you get taken by the rise. And then you soon lose sight of any intention except, that is, to return eventually the place you began...read more
