Debunked:Why Obama Isn’t a Liberal Version of Reagan
In the aftermath of Obama’s election there were all kinds of wild notions of what it would mean to the future of the nation. One of the many suppositions that was foolishly asserted was the presumption that Obama would be able to project liberal politics into the mainstream. It was assumed that middle America would finally, with Obama as the spokesman embrace liberalism just as | Read More »
Damn The Torpedos! Full Speed Ahead!!!!
Admiral David Farragut uttered those famous words at the Battle of Mobile Bay. It is his example and these fighting words that conservatives must embrace as our motto. I admit, that as a genuine conservative, a native of Philadelphia, I embraced pragmatism. I was wrong.
