There’s a war raging, and the right thinks that if it doesn’t engage or doesn’t show up, then that war doesn’t exist. How irrational. If you don’t show up, you forfeit, and the right is forfeiting. Anytime someone takes a bold or brave stance against statism or collectivism, or against jihad and Sharia, they suffer withering attacks from both outside the movement and inside the movement.
The leadership on the right does not understand its own philosophy. They do not understand free markets, capitalism and individual rights. If they did, they would be more ferocious, fiercer and more courageous in the fight for freedom and equality of rights before the law against the second-handers, moochers, and looters on the left.

This most certainly should be our issue, our moment. There have been these moments in American history when right and wrong, good and evil were very clearly defined.

I’m auctioning it off for gas money. I can send it out Monday, my last mailing from the old PO Box. It’ll be signed and dated to commemorate my Yankee exodus.
Auction ends tomorrow 8PM et.

In the Land of the Free, people grow up hearing a lot of things about their freedom.
You’re told that you live in the freest country on the planet. You’re told that other nations ‘hate you’ for your freedom.
And you’re told that you have the most open and fair justice system in the world.
This justice system is supposedly founded on bedrock principles– things like a defendant being presumed innocent until proven guilty. The right to due process and an impartial hearing. The right to counsel and attorney-client privilege.
Yet each of these core pillars has been systematically dismantled over the years:
“Am I going to be an outcast?” A friend, who recently moved to an upscale neighborhood in Madison, Wis., called me last week to ask if she would be able to make mommy friends if she continued feeding her children — gasp! — non-organic food.
Fred Barnes declares that the Democrats have to hold Kay Hagen’s Senate seat in North Carolina if they have any chance of keeping the Senate. He already figures Republicans will pick up West Virginia, South Dakota, Montana, Louisiana and Arkansas.
