Robert Jacques, The Republican Gun, Sniping lies with magnum honesty

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:

Aletheia

Veritas

Wahrheit

Truth

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 —

 Talk!

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.

Originally inspired by email communications between Dr. Jacques and a student & protégé, the Gun has evolved into living growing entity involving new students, new followers and lovers of truth. Follow, even participate if you like, as Reality unfolds.

Who Is America For

Who Is America For

The question of “who is America for?” has long been a debate between the various groups that assert themselves as the true sentinels of the American heart and soul. White nationalists claim the United States belongs to white Euro-Americans, for the “purest country”...

State of the Nation’s Nationalism

State of the Nation’s Nationalism

I like the manner of your realization and the fortitude of your acknowledgement:  that you’d rationally acted no differently than your contemporaries in buying a political product on the basis of branding consciousness.  Like, ‘Oh, yeah, I like her ideas!  Her ads are...

None of The Above

None of The Above

The question of why I initially chose Bernie Sanders, and then subsequently chose Hillary Clinton, over Donald Trump is – to the best of my knowledge – a question I’ve never been asked before.  I find that fascinating considering that during the election I asked...

What We Have Here is a Failure to Communicate

What We Have Here is a Failure to Communicate

I think, as my elementary school gym teacher used to say, “we’ve had a failure to communicate.”  Whether it was an error of English on my part or a bout of quick reading on yours, I cannot say for sure.  It actually doesn’t really matter.  Nevertheless, in the opening...

The Straight Line on Bias

The Straight Line on Bias

I found your opening remark that I’m politically biased interesting and inspirational:  in a word, provocative. I’m not biased in any way whatsoever. Some of our readers are probably choking right now on the hubris of my contented arrogance and the complacence of such...

Six Ways of Republican Speech

Six Ways of Republican Speech

Several words have recently appeared in The Gun which are as ample as they are ambiguous, and therefore as excellent as they are elusive:  public, private, people, nation.  Such potent words are as susceptible to shenanigans as they are conducive to fortuity. For...

Silent Public of the Republic

Silent Public of the Republic

The issue of students’ unwillingness to speak out is an interesting one, and one that I’m personally familiar with.  You mentioned students of yours that remain silent even though they have an answer – maybe not the exact answer, but a plausible one – in their head....

Your Phone and Your Soul

What if the universe is an untold joke and the extinction of humanity is the snap of a twig in the woods where only humans have the sense to notice it? Meanwhile, adults who morally deplore the “innovative vices” of the young didn’t create any dangerous fun of their...

Contemporary American Communication

Contemporary American Communication

You offered up a fascinating point of discussion in your last piece.  Whether it was a serious inquiry or simply a product of wit, I consider the topic of contemporary American communication one worth exploring. As a college student in the 21st century – what’s...

Bricks of the Sentence-Walls

Bricks of the Sentence-Walls

More than grammatical regularity and attractive combinations of words are needed for meaningful communication.  You must have meaning!  Your emotions must be coherent.  And your words must be right.  A republic is not a democracy.  And republics aren’t democratic. ...

Patriotism Without Religion

Patriotism Without Religion

After jointly writing several sections on the topic of religion, I think it’s clear that we’re both deeply fascinated with the subject.  Although I’m non-religious, I like to step into the world of religion every once in a while – maybe poke around for a bit before I...
