The Lesson of Dunkirk

I have supported Dr. Sowell's work at the Hoover Institute for many years with annual restricted contributions. He is one of the most articulate experts on economics, race and culture alive, with the ability to explain complex issues with clarity, always backed up with extensive citations. These recent posts regarding Senator Cruz, who I regard as a bright light in a deep dark well, seem out of character, and even personal. Senator Cruz represents everything that Dr. Sowell professes to believe in, and he clearly has not been sucked into the morass that is Washington, DC. He is "Mr. Smith goes to Washington," representing not only the people who elected him but all the people. With his personal attacks on Senator Cruz, Dr. Sowell appears to be supporting the milquetoast establishment Republicans. We have already proven, with the election of Senator's Cruz and Rubio and others, that true conservatives can win elections. There are times to be cautious, and times to rush boldly into the fight. I think this is the time to fight.
As a conservative first, Republican second, who is tired of holding my nose and voting for candidates like John McCain and Mitt Romney, I would join Ann Coulter by either voting for Clinton over McCain or sitting out the election for the first time in my life. Not sure where the McCain vs Clinton match up idea came from. Haven't heard it anywhere else and maybe Ann through it out there to make a point, i.e. conservatives are tired of the poor candidates that the RNC is putting up. We don't want Romney, McCain, Christie, or Bush...we want a strong conservative who will blow up the aisle instead of reaching across it.

A Blank Check For War on Iran

"Are we being as misled, deceived and lied to about Iran's "weapons of mass destruction," as we were about Iraq's?" 1) Mr. Buchanan certainly knows that ALL of the Western world's security agencies believed that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, i.e. there was no lie, just no weapons. 2) If these agencies failed in their reports about Iraq's supposed weapons of mass destruction, why in the world would Mr. Buchanan trust the very same agencies to provide a valid report about Iran's attempts to acquire nuclear weapons? If they were wrong about Iraq, why would he consider them right about Iran? 3) What will Mr. Buchanan say when first, a mushroom cloud appears over Tel Aviv and subsequently Tehran disappears in a counter attack by Israel? Just asking.

Ryan Saves GOP From Itself

Did Paul Ryan's budget deal save the Republican party from itself? I think it did not. I think it means true Conservatives will finalize realize that traditional Republicans have no respect for them and simply take their votes for granted. I'm tired of holding my nose and voting for moderate Republicans like McCain and Romney. I'm tired of people like Boehner and Ryan making deals with the liberals to make them feel better. I'm looking for a Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul to lead us out of the wasteland that is the current GOP. We need strong leaders who will take principled Conservative positions and then defend and promote them. If the GOP puts up Chris Christy, Paul Ryan or God forbid Jeb Bush for President, then I will not vote for a President for the first time in 45 years.

The War Against Achievement

The video Dr. Sowell mentions is called "Man Born With No Arms Drives His Impala Works For NASCAR Racing Team" and can be viewed on Facebook at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCtIX-WWUrY. Watching this young man driving, working, and eating...with no arms...is absolutely amazing and inspirational.

Is Christie the One?

James B. Davis Wrote: Nov 07, 2013 10:16 AM
if Christie becomes the Republican nominee, for the first time in over 40 years i will not vote in a Presidential election. i am tired of holding my nose and voting for the lesser of two evils, i.e Mccain and Romney. The GOP is not listening to conservatives, and keeps pushing Democrat light aka moderate candidates. Winning elections is of course important, but not at the cost of compromising conservative principles. I am done. I don't want to reach across the aisle. I want to take our country back from the liberal idiots who are ruining the United States. Give me, and the conservative base, a true conservative candidate, or lose our votes...and the next presidential election.

I have listened to Hugh Hewitt for years and find myself in general agreement with his point of view. But not this time. He is not arguing a moral or practical position, but rather a legal one, i.e. we must attack Syria because they broke an international law. If this is to be our position, we need to be prepared to repeat this blunder over and over as not a day goes by that someone, somewhere does not provide a rational for action using this narrow minded thinking. We primary politicians for their mistakes...let's primary Hugh by not listening until he comes to his senses.
"As I’ve been working on immigration reform legislation" should have been accurately stated as "I have been working on amnesty for up to 33 million illegal aliens that would cost taxpayers $6.3 trillion over 50 years". Marco Rubio WAS a rising star of the conservative movement. I think his star is fading fast and I'm not certain he can reverse the damage no matter what he does. It is hard to understand why an apparently intelligent conservative could make a career killing decision like this. I donated $1000 to his Florida campaign but will no longer support him financially. I suggest that all conservatives do the same until he abandons the amnesty folly and reassures us that he has come to his senses.
Rush Limbaugh made this argument over a week ago...where has Schlichter been? While I'm not a religious person, sometimes I wonder what people arriving at the gates of heaven are going to say to God when he asks them why they supporting the killing of unborn children and gay marriage. Matthew 19:4-6 New King James Version (NKJV) 4 And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made[a] them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’[b] 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?[c] 6 So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
"Republicans Must Show Support for Hispanic Dreams" is the WRONG message. Are "Hispanic Dreams" different than the dreams of blacks, Asians, whites, etc.? I don't think so. People who come here, legally or illegally, do so to pursue A COMMON DREAM of freedom, opportunity, and a better future for their children. What Republicans need to do is educate all people that conservatives understand the dream, because we have lived it, and that our policies provide the best chance for them to realize the dream.
