Only You Can Make it Better

Wednesday, June 1st, 2022

Please read the names of the American children and teachers sacrificed to Second Amendment extremism. We need responsible gun ownership. We need a well-regulated militia.

Break Big Oil’s Monopoly

Thursday, March 17th, 2022

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result. The first oil shock happened in 1973. Energy prices are set by “the market. The global energy market keeps failing us. We have known the market is failing us for 49 years.  We know what can fix it: conservation and competition.  Conservatives […]

Cruelty is a Feature, Not an Accident

Thursday, September 16th, 2021

The terrorist attacks on 9/11 ignited the rise of Big Government Conservatism.  Just a few months before, George W. Bush had won a razor thin election by presenting himself as a compassionate conservative.  Within days of the September attacks his mask fell off.

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

There is a traditional German saying that warns the foolish not to throw the baby out with the bathwater. A wise person realizes the value of preservation and change. Since the French Revolutionaries first took their seats in the National Assembly, politicians have divided themselves along this axis. One party favored preservation, while the other […]

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

A friend posed the following question.  “Shaking off the horserace mentality for the moment: does anyone know how the GOP candidate policy positions poll, versus the Obama record & likely campaign platform? Put simply, are these people speaking to the 51%? Here is how it see it. These candidates are like the local activist who […]
