Time to use the mandate...
11.05.04 (9:22 am)   [edit]

Tuesday, November 2, 2004 was a huge victory for moral, values-based Conservatism.  Now, President Bush, Speaker Hastert and Majority Leader Frist have a solemn duty to do the right thing.  Of course, judicial nominations (for example, a re-nomination of Miguel Estrada, perhaps in the soon-to-be-vacated seat on the SCOTUS) must take precedence if the Conservative movement is to go forward.  But that's not where it stops, not by a long shot.  We need tax reform (I personally would like to see a national sales tax on all purchases other than those needed for survival, such as food, utilities, etc.) so that small businesses can continue to grow the economy.  We need resolution in Iraq so that our boys and girls can come home.  The denial of our nation's Judeo-Christian roots by the courts must stop.  The protection of unborn children must be codified in the law of the land.  The list goes on.


It's in the court of the Congressional Conservatives and the White House.  We gave you the mandate, we gave you the political capital, now go out and spend it.


That's just my 2 cents.

The Governator...
10.07.03 (8:48 pm)   [edit]
OK...Arnold is in, Gray is out, who knows what Cruz is doing. Although I do not (by the grace of God) live in California, I cannot help but be jubilant over the outcome of today's California recall election. In a state where Dems outnumber Republicans by 10%, Republican candidates garnered around 60% of the vote. That's not just a mandate, it's a landslide. Now it remains to be seen whether or not the Democrats will play ball with the new governor. I think that, for their own good, they had better. I think that this election is going to send a political shockwave across the country. This is another piece of solid proof that the Democrats are not capable of formulating and communicating a message. It's not enough to simply be against the President...in order to get votes you need to be FOR something (besides raising taxes, that is).
Well, God bless America, and remember Arnold's theme song...WE'RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!!!

That's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

The roadmap to peace...
08.24.03 (4:49 pm)   [edit]
They're at it again in Israel. This time the Israeli government went after http://www.reuters.com/newsArticle.jhtml?type=topNews&storyID=3328171 (successfully) 4 Hamas leaders. I wonder how those folks can live like this, day in and day out. While I applaud President Bush for his Roadmap, I just don't see it working. Let's look back a few days, shall we? A Palestinian homicide bomber (I won't dignify what he did by using the term "suicide bomber") kills 20 innocents in a bus (among them five Americans), which act is immediately followed by Hamas officials stating that "the cease fire is still in effect". WHAT?!? How can you even attempt to put together an intelligent response to drivel like that? You want to know what I think they should do? Israel needs to say to the Palestinians, "OK, you want a country? You got it. Show us where the border is. Great - that works for us. NOW - you have 24 hours to clear out - every single one of you. Go to Palestine. Don't look back, don't even [b][i]think[/i][/b] of coming back across the border. If you do cross back over, we will consider it an armed invasion and we will formally declare war on you. Ask the Egyptians or the Syrians or ANYONE ELSE we've went to war with how it will come out."
We all know that won't happen, but I think that it is high time we loosen the leash on the Israelis. No more of Colin Powell's "tsk tsk"-ing and talking about how reprisals aren't "helpful". No more listening to international voices - just let Israel deal with Israel's internal problems in their own fashion. If that happens, the PLO and their ilk will cease to be a factor in no time flat.
This is, of course, just my opinion. I may be proven wrong (and usually am)....but I doubt it.
