Why am I a Conservative? Part I

Friday, April 24th, 2009

My name is Cliff.  And I’m a conservative.  I feel like I should be in a 12-step program to acknowledge and turn away from my shame.  The term “conservative” is a bad word anymore.  We’ve been branded as bigots and hatemongers.  Despite the recent election results, I assure you the conservative movement is not dead. … »

Abortion Laws Don’t Add Up

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

Men and women are not equal.  I think it’s high time everyone stops the politically correct pandering to women and just admit the truth.  Women are helpless, indecisive, and irrational, and should therefore not be held accountable for their actions.  Lest you think I’m crazy, or merely arrogantly chauvinistic, let me assure you I am… »

Brian Carter, a Skateboard and a Ski Rope

Saturday, April 18th, 2009

It’s only fitting to begin this section with the title story.  It’s not even close to the best story I have to tell, but it definitely made for a nice title.  So, here goes… It was late spring in 1981, near the end of my fifth-grade year.  Brian Carter was my best friend.  Now pardon… »

What is George W. Bush’s Legacy?

Saturday, April 18th, 2009

I had a conversation with a friend a few weeks back about President Bush’s legacy. Like many who lean leftward, my friend has spent the past 8 years disparaging President Bush at every opportunity. The President has been portrayed as stupid, a cowboy, arrogant, and reckless.

In our polarized political climate, it’s become common to vilify… »

Dang Write! debuts

Saturday, April 18th, 2009

April 18, 2009 marks the official debut of Dang Write!  In recent years, but particularly since the political shift of 2006, I have had conversation after conversation with fellow conservatives dissatisfied with the political direction of our country–this includes disappointment with many Republicans and other “conservatives” who seem to have abandoned the core principles that… »
