Co-founder of GraniteGrok, my concern is around Individual Liberty and Freedom (and how Government is taking that away from us). My fight, from a Conservative (with small "L" libertarian leanings) and evangelical Christian perspective, is with the Progressives that are forcing a collectivized and secular humanistic future upon us.

Obama – the Hypocrite in Chief

UPDATE: From InstaPundit (emphasis mine): Bob Krumm emails: "The most damning part of the Obama aunt story is that once his campaign found her living in squalor they told her to not talk to the press until after the election, but they didn’t try to help her." He has a post here to that effect. …

Notable Quotes – C.S. Lewis

Thoughts for Tuesday: "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.

The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us …
