I am a conservative. I believe in smaller government, fiscal responsibility, education, self-reliance, and integrity. What I hope for is immigration control, a balanced budget, free trade,energy independence and ,in an increasingly dangerous world, a strong military. What I wish for is a politician who puts his country before a constituency and re-election. What I don't care about politically are religion,atheism, abortion,sexual orientation these are things that don't deserve governmental attention in a society that is run for the benefit of all. These are things best left to an individual's conscience.I also don't care if people are white, purple,yellow ,red , black or brown. I also don't care if they are Polish,Irish , Russian, Ghanian, or of any other background. I only care if they are Americans. Now, my question what do i do with my vote ?

While the grasshopper USA goes blithely on its way chasing the chimera of clean air , defusing global warming and bringing peace to the mid-east the industrious ants of China are no longer buying our debt. They are using the money from the trade imbalance to build stock piles of commodities. They are buying iron , copper, and grains and have stated that they will increase their strategic reserves of oil by 300 per cent. Is this cause for concern ? Not now, but will it be ? Guess. While we continue with the idea that man causes global "Climate Change" and that our puny efforts can some how control the climate the Chinese are preparing for the future whatever it may bring. While our politicians waste billions on ethanol to buy the votes of the corn lobby and Archer Daniel and hinder domestic oil exploration China prepares for the day of world wide oil and other commodity shortages. I guess it makes sense , think how pretty all those windmills of ours will look with a garden of tulips. We have placed our future on the altar of algoreianism.

where elite meet to patronize
The aristocracy of Washington and the media are blinded to reality by their incestuous relationship and deluded by their isolation from the general population. It is difficult to find a major issue in which the elite share the opinion of the populace. Gun control, anthropogenic cause of climate change,even climate change per se, treasury department, tea parties,whether business or government is better at operating things, immigration, bailouts, the list seems endless. The frustrating thing is that the plebeians are often correct while the condescending patricians are so often wrong. Intellectual growth comes from stimulus. Speaking to sycophants who reinforce your ego and opinions stagnates. When you add intellectual dullness to corruption the sum is a congress that is moribund and self serving.
