I've voted Republican since I could vote, starting with Ronald Reagan. The Conservative ideology seems to fit my political belief system. I'm a diehard Dittohead, having listened to Rush since he went into syndication. I've read his books and am a 24/7 subscriber.

A Little Humor

Hehe, yes I'm married.

Of course that's not my wife, but I can dream right? Ann Coulter is a famous conservative goddess, uh I mean commentator.

Philosophical Thoughts

"An old man wandering around the Olympic Games looking for a seat was jeered at by the crowd until he reached the seats of the Spartans, whereupon every Spartan younger than him, and some that were older, stood up and offered him their seat. The crowd applauded and the old man turned to them with a sigh, saying "All Greeks know what is right, but only the Spartans do it"."

Although this speaks well of Spartans, I believe their political ideology was a bit socialistic.

"Those who beat their swords into plowshares will plow for those who don't." Thomas Jefferson.

Psalm 32:5 "I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin." Selah

"With respect to our state and federal governments, I do not thing their relations correctly understood by foreigners. They generally suppose the former subordinate to the latter. But this is not the case. They are co-ordinate departments of one simple and integral whole. To the state governments are reserved all legislation administration, in affairs which concern their own citizens only; and to the federal government is given whatever concerns foreigners and citizens of other states; these functions alone being made federal. The one is the domestic, the other the foreign branch of the same government - neither having control over the other, but within its own department." --Thomas Jefferson’s letter to Major John Cartwright, of June 5th, 1824 (vol. 4, p. 396)

"On every question of construction [of the Constitution] let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or intended against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed." --Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), letter to Judge William Johnson, (from Monticello, June 12, 1823)
