About the Sections

In case you’re wondering, each section has a purpose.  Some are straightforward, and some are oddly named.  The explanations are below:

Common Sense Values:

This section will focus on conservative ideology, core beliefs, and how conservatives are viewed and misrepresented.

Eat the Elephant:

Whether you are a supporter of President Obama or not, there’s no denying that we have a tremendous opportunity to advance race relations in this country.  This section hopes to advance the dialogue in a meaningful way.  The name derives from the old wisdom of how to tackle a giant problem (How do you eat an elephant?):  one bite at a time.  Progress may not come overnight, but we need to constantly be moving forward.

Faith & Family:

Pretty self-explanatory.  All things related to faith–the supposed separation of church and state, the importance of electing people who share our values, why God will always matter–and family–the importance of the family unit, divorce, sexual purity/infidelity, and why mothers and fathers are equally necessary.

Life is Beautiful

Life is a gift from God.  We must never devalue life at its beginning or end.  Abortion, euthanasia, cloning, genetic science, and other hot topics will be discussed.  However, this will also be a place of celebration–acknowledging the many little things that make life beautiful, special, and so very significant every single day.


All things political, but often with a twist.  Politics is a game these days.  We need far more thought, far more conversation, and fewer sound bites.  Very few things in politics can be summed up in a single sentence, but it seems that’s how many of us form opinions these days.

Skateboard & Ski Rope:

This section really isn’t about conservative values.  It’s really just a place to write about some of the more “interesting” things I survived while growing up.  Quite often, the stories can be summed up by simply saying, “It seemed like a good idea at the time.”
