Conservatives want the very best for everyone. We want people to be free, happy, healthy, independent, safe, financially secure, and to feel they are leading lives of accomplishment by providing for their families and contributing to others. These blessings are enabled and fostered by Conservative policies. Everyone applauds Bono’s humanitarian efforts in Africa. Bono realized […]

The Republican party has no interest in receiving advice from me, and not just because we’re not exactly on speaking terms.  As a rule, I don’t speak to ‘The Party” I speak to folks who run as Republicans, activists, and voters, who may or may not be Republicans but have traditionally prefered what Republicans run […]
