    I owe Democrats an apology. Flipping through some of my hate mail (I lead a tremendously exciting life, as you can see) it dawned on me that it’s quite possible conservatives are a little too hard on our liberal friends. (Also: I’m trolling for more hate mail.) And so, with reserved humility, I sat down with a drink (less than 32 ounces) and a pen, and made a list of things for which we conservatives ought to apologize. It’s the least I can do:I am sorry about labeling Net Neutrality “broadband-socialism”. Clearly my distrust in the folks who brought us...

    NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. — He knew all the right things to say to rile up the conservative base. Ted Cruz, the junior Republican senator from Texas, received waves of standing ovations, cheers and whistles as he addressed the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference Thursday. “Hillary Clinton embodies the corruption of Washington,” Cruz told the assembled conservatives. ”We need to run a populist campaign standing for the hardworking people of America.”

My daughter is a conservative tho not a political junkie like her mom LOL. Her friend is probably a moderate, but not particularly political. I have a "moderate" republican friend who said Seattle is just growing by leaps and bounds and lots of young people are moving there.

    Recently, I was temporarily placed on the Southern Poverty Law Center's watch list for extremism simply because I vocally support traditional marriage. I remember thinking: When did advocating for lifelong love between one man and one woman become a hate crime? Fortunately, the group saw the folly of its ways and apologized, removing me from the list. It was a small battle, a blip in the daily life of someone who has entered the political arena. And I enjoyed the support of many who rallied in the conservative media to my cause to help reverse such a silly distinction. But...

    Ted Cruz never punts because he’s too busy staying on offense. Cruz never allows the media to control the narrative he forces them to follow his narrative. I think the best example of this was a while back when Cruz was on Meet The Press with Chuck Schumer. Gregory wanted Cruz to come out one way or another about the recent NRA ads talking about Obama’s children. Remember that?

Twenty percent prefer Mr. Cruz in a would-be 2016 GOP presidential primary match-up, and 19 percent prefer Mr. Walker in a new University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll. The numbers present a rapid rise for Mr. Walker, who was at 2 percent to Mr. Cruz’s 27 percent a few months ago. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson were next at 9 percent apiece, followed by former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who had been in second...

That might have been true of his day -- the 1920s and 1930s -- but in our time writers of letters to the editor of newspapers and even of websites are occasionally quite well-informed and even lucid. But others, I am afraid, are indeed pinheads, sitting in their underwear back home, foaming at the mouth, believing that the whole world is profoundly interested in their every word, until the authorities...

    How is it possible that a president can win re-election by a relatively comfortable margin while receiving fewer raw votes than his first election? Enter Mitt Romney. A simple data comparison is very telling. That comparison is the Romney raw vote vs. all votes for congressional Republicans in a given state. Crunching the numbers, Romney significantly underperformed the Republican congressional vote totals in multiple states. In North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin -- all presidential swing states -- Mitt Romney underperformed the total raw votes cast for all Republican congressional candidates by an average of 3 percent. That means that...

    The big question that spawned many pundit opinions after Romney lost the presidential election: what happened to the four million Republican voters who didn’t vote for him? To be honest, since Bush’s second-term win, there has been a steady decline in Republican voters in presidential elections, but that still doesn’t answer the question. The blunt answer is that many “conservative” Republicans have grown tired of putting up faux support for RINO presidential candidates. This has turned into a snowball effect and will culminate in an even larger number of conservative Republicans not voting again in 2016 if there is another...

    The White House must have thought Republicans in Congress would fall in line behind Speaker John Boehner and let President Barack Obama do what he’s “gotta do” on executive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. Politico reports that as Republicans have instead organized behind incoming Senate Budget Committee chairman Sen.

Obama showed his frustration during a press conference in Myanmar on Friday, Politico’s Seung Min Kim and Carrie Budoff Brown wrote late Friday night. “They [Republicans] have the ability to fix the...

Even in 2012, after four years of relentless conservative attacks, he still got 17 percent of the conservative vote, with 11 percent of Tea Party supporters saying they cast their ballots for Obama. They were not wrong. In my opinion, Obama has governed as a moderate conservative—essentially as what used to be called a liberal Republican before all such people disappeared from the GOP. He has been conservative to exactly the same degree that Richard Nixon basically governed as a moderate liberal, something no...

    House Republicans will have their largest majority since the 1930s next year, but that doesn't mean Speaker John Boehner's (R-Ohio) job will be easy.The House GOP leadership's struggles in keeping members in line over the past four years have been well documented. Some of the incoming freshmen will likely join the ranks of conservatives who frequently oppose leadership initiatives.Among the new freshmen, for instance, is one congressman-elect who has called Hillary Clinton the "anti-Christ," another who has suggested Muslims don't deserve First Amendment rights, and yet another who has declared himself open to the idea of the United States invading...

    Tea party favorite Allen B. West was named Friday to be the new CEO of the National Center for Policy Analysis, a Dallas think tank that has focused on market-based solutions for health care and tax and fiscal policy. West, 53, is a former Republican congressman from Florida and a retired Army lieutenant colonel. He is expected to boost donations to the think tank, which sagged after the forced departure of founding CEO John Goodman in June. Since leaving Congress in 2013, West has been a commentator on Fox News, a blogger and a fundraiser for conservative veteran and minority...

    White, white, white. In nearly every room Love enters as she stumps her way across Utah’s 4th District on a quest to become the first black female Republican in Congress, she is not just the only black person there. She’s the only person of any color, unless you count farmer tans. This 39-year-old, Brooklyn-born daughter of Haitian immigrants and former mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, seems completely at home in a crowd of mostly old white dudes. What’s more, she gets a warmer reception here than when she made a speech at the University of Chicago Law School in 2013....

I -as with many of you, I'm sure- fall-in somewhere around  'modern conservatism' (purple line)... alas, by definition a 'modern' descriptive indicates how relentless the overall expansion of government has been over the long run... and how many times we've been forced back to a new, more defensible position. But has there ever been historical examples of purely 'Voluntarist' societies, even on a local level? Perhaps some Indian...
