The truth is…

…nobody knows. I don’t know, you don’t know, Warren Buffet doesn’t know, Obama doesn’t know, and obviously Bush didn’t know how to fix the economy.  But let me ask you this–if business taxes were dropped to zero; nada; nothing- -would it pull is out of this mess? Of course not. If every piece of pork were removed from the package would it pull us out? No. It comes down to micro-psychology; macro-psychology; media reports; oil demands; pain thresholds; national security; risk/reward ratios; politics–there’s a lot more to it than taxes.

    So I am the only conservative source you have. I clearly don’t have the ability to clearly express the dissent on my own. Conservatives and Libertarians have been screaming about fiscal discipline for a long time. It’s no longer a Republican/Democrat issue. It’s a government vs. conservatives issue. The Republican Party lost its way. Right now its about putting our national debt into uncharted territory. Its about printing money and not letting the market determine the winners and losers. Its about nationalizing our financial institutions (soon to come). It’s about the baby boom generation starting to retire and putting massive strains on Social Security and Medicaid. I’m not saying the sky is falling but these are real issues that can have serious long term consequences.

    Speaking of lost his way:

    Of course you’re not the only conservative voice I listen to…I don’t listen to you at all 🙂
    I read Kristol, Will, watch Oreilly, read Fox News, come on…But when the shining stars of Conservatism are Palin, Limbaugh, Dick Morris, and Hannity, well that’s just fuckin’ pathetic! And conservatives need to stop catering to these lunatics and find some honest, intelligent voices and leadership to carry your message. Bush and his gang ruined it. How can you blame me for being turned off? These people have and continue to be divisive, short-sighted and bereft of fresh ideas. But hey, Palin launched her PAC. You can contribute on her website if you want some REAL change.

    Try some others: Krauthammer, Herman Cain, National Review Online, Boortz (Libertarian), Citizens Against Public Waste (non-partisan), Real Clear, The Heritage Foundation, Michael Medved, and yes Rush Limbaugh (he’s a jerk but brilliant).

    Fox news, Hannity (on television) and O’Reilly do not really clearly explain conservative thought. It’s more of a hollywood version of conservatism. More personality than actual content.

    In fact, if you were to put the above group in your “political diet” for 6 months, I guarantee you would have a completely different set of opinions. I would be willing to bet my car on it.
