Jeffrey Lord writes a very interesting column at The American Spectator about the GOP and abortion, including the assertion that some people are pro-life for reasons other than religion by examining how slavery was treated by Lincoln and the Supreme Court at the time. Along the way, Lord provides a terrific explanation of the problem of a too-strong federal government that is very similar to my opposition to smoking bans while being a non-smoker. Check it out.
American Thinker is one of the best sites on the Internet for reasoned conservative political commentary. The biggest problem I have with them is that everything they put out is excellent, and really should be read widely. I just can't keep up! Here are a few of the recent good ones that are all worth checking out:
– Al Gore is lying low — for good reason
– What do you expect with Obama?
– What do Muslim nations think about terrorism?
– How to cut the budget
– The Incontestable Tenets of the Green Church
– What Americans don't understand about DemCare
– How the Left reveals itself
– President Incompetent
– Planning to fail
Is our government really broken?
Obama whines, “I'm not a socialist!” Uh…prove it.
Just one failure of a year in, and he's already planning his re-election campaign.
John Yoo: I did this for you, too.
