As we slide into the abyss, the type of thinking in this column is what passes for conservativism. That is how we got here.

We have been sandbagged by the RINO's for decades, even before I was born and we must get rid of them, they are the LICE on the body of the Republic.

"I feel like Justice Roberts cheated on me," said a friend, half in jest, half expressing honest disappointment. Having once emceed a "Women for Roberts" press conference for C-SPAN back in the day, I heard a lot of similar sentiments in the wake of his penning the majority opinion for the Supreme Court decision that "upheld Obamacare," as many have put it.

But the whole of the president's health care legislation wasn't actually the question before the Court.
