Still More Politicized Pseudo-Science?

There is a big difference between organizing a campaign to obtain a specific result and a plan to persuade and educate people as to the truth and accuracy of your data and conclusions.

I don't see why Mr. Bozell can't comment on TV. His comments don't suggest you not think for yourself. I also find your use of the word prude to describe this review beyond a stretch. The comparison of a critical review as equivalent to decapitation is unintentionally ironic given that you say in the next line that people can differentiate fiction and reality.
I am in agreement with the other comments. The republicans may be writing the budget but they are writing the same budget that the democrats wrote. I note that you give the amount of the cuts in budgets without giving the amount of total budget or any other number to provide a perspective. The IRS cut for example is less than half of the increase from 2012 to 2013. As for this being a down payment I agree with you. A down payment on republican flavored big government.

"If we are going to talk about history, let's at least get the facts right". As if the Hon Charles Rangel who I am sure does know the facts, cares in the least. Good one Dr. Sowell. Funny.
I wasn't going to comment on this article but your note has motivated me. I tend to agree with the few other commentators that Mr. Bush cannot motivate the conservative core. I like the Bushes but they believe in big government and I do not. It might be time for a third party. What I like about your note is that you manage to combine a straw man and an ad hominem argument in a single statement. Two illogical assertions without ever commenting upon the actual content of the article.

If only politicians were saying this. Republicans may win but liberation? Somehow I doubt it.

"But at least there is hope that the Republican Party can get back on track." And this hope is based on what exactly? And if we say hope does not require evidence then why none for the Democrats. I like your columns Ms. Parker but as an independent I am not on board the Republican bandwagon here on Townhall. They have had plenty of opportunity to be a conservative voice and they have refused to do so.

Don't 'Vote for the Candidate'

Where is the evidence that a republican Senate will block liberal Judges? I don't see it. I have been hearing this line for 40 years. The Republicans could not keep the sequester. Townhall has a lot of Republican columnists. They should talk more to the Republican candidates. Not with them on this one.
A big part of your argument here is ad hominem. I would also note that if the "hard libertarians" were never GOP supporters then why would they somehow become supporters in order to support a less than ideal candidate? As both a value's conservative and a hard libertarian I no longer see Republican's as conservative. -They couldn't even keep the sequester- I am not susceptible to the idea that things would be better if Republican's are in power. The Republicans brought down a party. Perhaps it is time for them to come down.
While I tend to agree with your argument about two party systems it is the case that the two parties can change. Obviously the Republican party is the example of that. I believe that the conservative argument is not being made. Neither is it being explicated by the Republicans nor is it winning the day. And most Republicans are simply not conservative so none of the benefits being espoused will actually occur. Regarding the Senate as a bulwark against judges I suggest taking a look at the nominees for Supreme Court justice who have already been confirmed by Republican Senates. That is purely a talking point. With only a few exceptions they cave. Sadly, I agree with point 4). I just think the Republicans need to become conservative as the needed point of consensus. Otherwise we will simply have Republican masters instead of Democratic masters.
