Mrs. Fuller and I went to the Republican primary caucus here in our neighborhood over the weekend. I’ve never been to a Democrat caucus, but I would imagine they are quite different. For one thing the Repub. voter base, unlike the Democrats’ base, doesn’t include large numbers of dead voters. There was no need to conduct a seance to count the votes.
You Might Be a Racist If…
In a couple of recent posts I’ve talked about the highly partisan issue of voter fraud. (Democrats are for it, Republicans are against it.)
In Tuesday’s post I mentioned that Democrats quite often use the word “racist” to describe any effort to purge the voter rolls of the names of dead people, or to require voters to identify themselves before voting, or to do anything, for that matter, that might help protect the integrity of the voting process.
This is no surprise to those of us who follow politics; liberals pull out the word “racist” like a gun from a holster whenever they want to win an argument without the support of facts or logic.
What is a Conservative?
A reader asked me an interesting question the other day. Why, she asked, does almost every political issue have a well-recognized “conservative” and “liberal” side? Why should the great majority of conservatives agree with each other on subjects as diverse as abortion, tax rates, capital punishment, gun control, illegal immigration, foreign aid, and campaign finance; and why can we count on the great majority of liberals taking the opposite side?
A Government of Laws, or of Men?
“The very definition of a republic is ‘an empire of laws, not of men’.” John Adams
Several of the founding principles of this nation have come under fire from liberals in recent years. One of them is John Adams’ definition of a republic. Adams and the other Founders all believed, as modern day conservatives do, that a nation should be governed by laws; laws written on paper, clearly defined, easily understood, and universally acknowledged.
