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.
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.
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”...read more
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...read more
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...read more
From the outset I fully recognized the ambiguity of your opening remarks about me being biased. Notice for a moment how your comparison could imply two biased people. For example, if someone is richer than me, that hardly implies I’m poor. On the other hand, if...read more
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...read more
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...read more
I was quite surprised when I received questions at the end of your last piece. In fact, if I was talking to someone who was more politically biased than yourself, I might consider the topic of Trump to be a trap. Whether you support Trump or you don’t, discussing...read more
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...read more
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....read more
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...read more
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...read more
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. ...read more
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...read more
More than any other topics, politics and religion bring out the belligerence in people. And that’s even though freedom and love are being discussed. Or because they are! The reason is simple. Politics and religion manage the two greatest domains of human...read more
I’m glad we’re in agreement when it comes to pointing out the Founding Father’s immense skepticism of religion. Many Americans seem to have this idea that because the Founders guaranteed the religious freedoms of U.S citizens that they saw some public value in god...read more
