    I believe conservatives should be preparing for what is less than 3 months away. We need to be in the political fight with our resources, not wasting on entertainment, vacations to blue states and cities, consumer goods like IPhone.

    Another line in the sand has been drawn as Congress faces a daunting lame-duck year-end fiscal crisis dubbed around Capitol Hill as "Taxmaggedon." Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., responded to a letter from Senate Republicans today in which they called for an immediate extension of the Bush tax cuts, with a message of his own: that's impossible before the election.
