Please, Bushes, Go Away

February 25, 2012

I wish the Bushes would just go away.  Bush 41′s “conservatism” got us Bill Clinton, while Bush 43′s “conservatism” got us Barack Obama.  Jeb Bush said Thursday that he used to be a conservative, before correcting his Freudian slip, and warned the GOP to stop playing on people’s fears and pivot to the center as [...]

Still a Center-Right Nation

August 18, 2009

We can still continue to thank Ronald Reagan for his great success in turning “liberal” into a bad word in American politics.  Not only that, but Reagan’s success in promoting a conservative agenda set the basic political atmosphere we have lived under for nearly three decades. Remember how the Democrats were the Whigs after the [...]

Conservatism Lives in 2009!

June 15, 2009

Gallup has issued the results of a massive poll indicating that Americans still identify themselves as a center-right country, with 40% of respondents identifying themselves as “conservative,” plus another 35% as “moderate.”  That’s roughly 75% of the country either in the political Center or the Right (read: not liberal).  Of course, you’ll always have a good chunk [...]

The Real Hatred is on the Left

October 12, 2008

The Media over the last few days has been decrying the so-called hatred and vitriolic comments coming from the right.  While there are certainly some instances of this, it is few and far between, and doesn’t exist among the majority of Conservatives.  In fact, the media is overblowing the comments of people at McCain / Palin [...]

Christian Conservatives Mull McCain

July 3, 2008

McCain’s $300 Million Prize

June 23, 2008

John McCain, if elected President, would offer a $300 million prize for any company or individual that produces a car battery which leapfrogs over the current wimpy ones on the market.  I like the approach.  Here’s my take: Telling us that in order to eventually get away from gas, the government will encourage innovation by giving a [...]

The Republican Problem

January 22, 2008

The Republican Party over the course of my lifetime has been a source of both hope and frustration.  Hope because it represents the best chance for a return to the ideals of our Constitution, and for advancing the cause of Conservatism.  Even our moderate Presidents have helped to stem the tide of liberalism by blocking [...]

Sal’s Endorsement: Mitt Romney

January 3, 2008

I have been struggling with who to support in race for the Republican Nomination for some months now.  It is only in sitting down to write this post that I actually made up my mind (in fact, the original headline I had written for this post was “Sal:  Undecided”).  However, as I was writing and [...]
