Our nation is faced with a mountain range of serious, self-inflicted problems. We are damning future generations to suffocating debt, by choice. We are sacrificing precious American lives in far away lands under the very thin masks of "defense" or foreign relations. We take from the producer and use the ill-gotten gain to further erode the foundation of the country. We outsource the management of daily life to a far off bureaucracy. We move toward some variation of the life depicted in Orwell's "1984" without much resistance. We have almost entirely succumbed to the subtly deadly weapon of political correctness, which has been employed magnificently by the enemies of liberty.
I know the popular, at least among those who claim the elastic moniker, "conservative," solution would be to place our noses adjacent to the proverbial grindstone in support of Republican candidates. Of course, they are correct that none but Democrat or Republican candidates can win in the big elections (a situation they toil to perpetuate). Even so, electing Republicans has proven to be no solution, at least, not in itself.
