One religion found that God's Word was not enough for man and chose themselves a man who, when opining on religious issues, became god. That way they could add any rite or practice, usually one that exerted power or extorted money from the congregants. Many people have become name-only conservatives in order to hitch their own wagons to the star of unrest among people who believe in strict constitutional authority over every legal issue. Used car salesmen could learn a few tricks from the politicians.

True...........Oh so true........

We have Romney, congressman Hoekstra, congressman Upton, congressman (fill in the blank), .........
In last week’s column I noted several specific examples of how the term “conservative” has been bastardized to mean standing for nothing other than not being a Democrat. Given what we’re seeing from Republican “leadership” on Capitol Hill, if every Republican is a conservative then nobody is.

This week I propose a remedy to the Republican Party establishment’s attempt to co-opt the term “conservative” and replace it with more Mitch McConnellesque milquetoast. That remedy will require a defined standard.

That defined standard should be the U.S. Constitution.

The best way to stop...
