I am the author of Defending Conservatism (2016) and the founder of both DefendingConservatism.com and BibleStrength.com.
Joshua David Zambrano is a native of Montgomery, Illinois, and the author of "Defending Conservatism" (2016). Joshua graduated from Waubonsee Community College with an A.A.S. in Business Administration and is in the final year of his B.S. in Political Science at Northern Illinois University after transferring from the University of Nebraska at Omaha upon making the Chancellor's List (Fall 2015) and Dean's List (Spring 2016/Fall 2015). He previously worked for the U.S. Census Bureau from 2004-10 and has also worked in the private sector as a proofreader, sales auditor, and call center representative. Joshua is working on his second book, "Defending the Authenticity of the Bible," which will be released by the end of 2019.
Joshua Zambrano has published research papers since January 2009 that include reforms now championed by both sides of the aisle, including a return of U.S. troops to guard the borders, trade restrictions on low minimum wage countries such as China, judicial term limits, an insurance-less healthcare system to reduce the Budget, and a return to public works programs. Other solutions such as tax breaks for companies that hire more U.S. workers to combat automation and trust-busting to break up large corporations to protect market competition and small business have been formally presented in research papers since 2010. Although controversial at the time, they have been adopted in recent years by prominent figures and organizations on both sides of the aisle.
I am a born-again Christian, saved on August 5th, 1998 at a summer camp in Illinois. I'm just a sinner saved by God's mercy through what Jesus did, trying to walk according to God's will and not my own. The Bible is God's preserved Word to mankind, fully sufficient to perfect us, for doctrine, reproof, and instruction in righteousness. I am a young-life-on-earth creationist who believes life on Earth was created less than 7,000 years ago. I did briefly preach a few sermons at Aurora Baptist Church in 2003/04 when it was led by Pastor George R. Perry, but do not have a degree in theology.
My political beliefs are an outgrowth of my belief in the Bible. I base all my knowledge around the Bible, it is my cornerstone for everything else I know. I am pro-life, oppose same-sex marriage, support religious freedom, and consider the 1st and 2nd Amendments fundamental to protecting all other Creator-given inalienable rights. I oppose free trade with low-wage countries like China, support securing the border and eVerify but also an apology for the Mexican Repatriation, oppose minimum wage increases, and was against the Iraq War from the start (I voted 3rd party in 2004 for Peroutka of the Constitution Party as well as for Obama's 2004 Republican U.S. Senate opponent Alan Keyes).
I am a conservative Christian first and foremost, and was involved with the Tea Party in 2010. I believe in only voting for good people, and do not put party first. Our first duty is to follow God and the dictates of our consciences as led by the Holy Spirit, not men.
Past Wiki Contributions
Many of the top-ranked pages across Conservapedia (which I was formerly a Moderator for) and Creationwiki depend heavily on contributions I made including pages on Abortion, Obama, Obamacare, Epicurus' Trilemma, William Penn, etc. Many Wikipedia pages are also dependent upon my contributions. I have authored numerous pages for both Citizendium and SourceWatch as well, along with content for GovTrack (previously OpenCongress when I edited). Much of that content has now been merged into BibleStrength.com and DefendingConservatism.com and enlarged upon, although there are still many pages I've written (particularly from Wikipedia) which I have yet to integrate.
For my family tree, see www.Ancestry.com. My father served in Vietnam, my grandpa John Robert Talbot served in the Korean War, my grandpa Jesus Garcia Zambrano served in World War II (he was naturalized as part of the WWII draft process as a radio operator in the U.S. Navy), and I would have served too if not for an entrance technicality. My ASVAB scores are here.
My great-great-great-grandfather Elliot Bristol Davidson served in the Civil War for the Union while living in Breckenridge, KY. His father, my great-great-great-great-grandfather LeRoy Davidson, also served as a Lieutenant in Kentucky's 14th company. And his father, Stephen Davidson, my great-great-great-great-great-grandfather served in the War of 1812 for the Virginia Militia.
The father of Stephen Davidson's wife, Nathan Neighbors, fought in the Revolutionary War for Virginia's Continental Line; my great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather. I also have another great-great-great-great-great grandfather who fought in the Civil War, Martin Van Buren Thacker.
I know a little French from high school courses as well as some Greek and Hebrew. Jzyehoshua is my initials JZ followed by the Hebrew word for Joshua, "Yehoshua." Also, I love Old English. And no, I don't speak any Spanish; never learned and don't care to.
