Issues for America

Over the next several weeks The American-Conservative will explore many of the issues facing our country and propose conservative solutions to address our problems. Most of these will address government policies and laws, since the government is the source of so many of our ills. We believe that the conservative approach is the best way to resolve our common difficulties. Conservatism best fits the American character. It honors the principles of the Constitution and honors our Judeo-Christian heritage. It is what the world sees when they hear The United States of America.

Dear Congressman

A principled stand against policies and laws that injure the public financially and infringes on the inalienable liberties of its citizens is never wrong. We, the American people, supported this effort. A soldier would not leave his comrades on the battlefield when the enemy fire became too intense. Why would we expect less from any of our elected representatives?

Bash asked “But if you can help one child with cancer, why wouldn’t you do it?” Reid answered with “Why would we want to do that? I have 1100 people at Nellis Air Force Base sitting home. They have problems of their own.”

OMG Obamageddon is Here!

Despite what the White House’s Chicken Little cried, the world did not end. Well, maybe Obama thinks so. I see that Fox News was still on this morning. 🙂

The Inept Mr. Obama

What does the wailing and gnashing of the teeth really mean? Obama and his cabinet secretaries are letting the budget axe fall like a meat cleaver, chopping every program without consideration of its merit. They are inept.

We Have a Deficit Problem

Sean Hannity has been playing a clip of Nancy Pelosi saying “we don’t have a spending problem, we have a deficit problem.” With respects to Sean, you can make the argument that Pelosi is right. We do not have a problem spending money, thank you very much. We are quite good at it, actually. The problem that we have is figuring out how to pay for what we spend.
