Why is TH allowing this charlatan to promote his book in the form of a column on this site? Here come the tinfoil hat brigades...
Not only is Sarah Palin truly conservative, she is also a strong leader. That's why the left and the GOP establishment both fear her so much. As for Rand Paul, if he's nominated, he's still better than anything the Dem's will have to offer. I'm leaning more and more toward Gov. Scott Walker. He appears to me to be a male version of Sarah Palin. Since Rand has disappointed you, you might check out Gov. Walker.
I'd still like to hear from Herald if he thinks I'm anti-gay or a bigot from the Christian Right. CC, I'm SURE Herald is convinced YOU'RE a bigot...

A new generation of voters is coming of age and this generation has been turned off by the bigotry they've seen from the Christian Right." Herald, I oppose judges legislating from the bench. I oppose limiting free speech by not allowing prayer in schools on that basis; I oppose abortion on that basis; I oppose redefining marriage on that basis. Am I to be labeled by you as anti-gay, or as a bigot from the Christian Right on that basis? If so, it is you who are on the wrong side of history... on the wrong side - period.

"I see no reason why government should be defining marriage." I think, on that basis, you should oppose a government that, through unaccountable federal judges, has tried to redefine an institution that was originally defined by God. Earl, I think we can still work together, and I think I would even be willing to concede that I have no problem with you calling yourself a conservative - if you want to.

"you are speaking in Generalities. There is no specificity... This is 'PRECISELY' where the fracturing and splintering of our Conservative movement occurs." Actually, I'm being very focused and specific; you are the one who is speaking in generalities. The values of conservatism have coalesced behind some very specific issues since Reagan was elected and as the leftist pollution of our culture and economy have become more pervasive. I do not want the term "conservative" watered down, but I am practical in realizing that ANYone who accepts any ONE of those conservative values should be viewed as friendly to the conservative cause and receptive to supporting conservative goals.

The tenets of true conservatism have never changed and they never will: -Do you believe in our founding documents? -Do you believe in limited government? -Do you believe human life is precious and that abortion-on-demand is immoral? -Do you believe it is wrong to redefine marriage from the Christian definition our country has accepted since before the founding? If you did not answer yes to all four questions, you are not a true conservative. However, if you answered yes to ANY of those questions, I - as a conservative - consider you a political ally. Let's join together and get this country going back in the right direction.
I believe the Bible. I also believe the story about the flood. And I enjoy believing that the flood was a cataclysmic and global event. It's just sort of fun to think that God used such an event to totally modify this biosphere in such a way as to confuse and confound scientists who, 4,000 years in the future, would be trying to figure this stuff out. Here's another fun thing about believing the flood was global; while I can't prove that I'm right, no one can prove that I'm wrong (and only a fool would claim to have definitive proof either way).
David + Brent = Ignorance + Arrogance x 2
Good points, CC. It's pretty obvious that if far2right is looking for a "self-righteous Pharisee" he need only to look in the mirror. I think "far2right" must be code for "Westboro Baptist."
I'm not DF, but I think I can offer some insight: Respectfully, there is no war on Christians --- in America --- at least not the way there is a real war on Christians in China and in Muslim nations around the world. The persecution of Christians in America is only in its beginning phases. The war on Christians is coming later, unless this nation experiences another Great Awakening on a scale of the one in the 18th century that birthed the Revolutionary War or on a scale equivalent with the Great Awakening in the 19th century that ultimately resulted in the abolition of slavery. If you are a Christian, you should pray. If you are not a Christian, you should be very concerned for the future of our country.
