Big choices for Sasha and Malia. Voting is for losers. Socially inept. Plus more.

Mr. Orlet makes excellent points — full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. I would suggest that the 12 to 20 million illegal aliens that will be both citizens and registered voters by the 2012 election will render all his arguments moot.
This country is in for several decades of darkness before there

This is a good article but I would like to point out the author’s use of the term “conservative” instead of the term “Republican.” Republicans are not conservative; nor are they agents of “change.” They are the Eastern, inside the beltway establishment and are personified in the likes of Bush, Dole and McLame.
I recently read an article about a gentleman who wants to start a true conservative national radio station to inform listeners about the alternatives to the two major parties which are mirror images of each other. I personally will never again vote for a Republican in a national election. That the Republicans offered up a political hack like
John McLame as its presidential candidate is a disgrace.
The one point I disagree with the author on is his premise that
no Republican could have won in this year’s election climate. If
Republicans had nominated a decent candidate they would have had
a shot. Instead they nominated Amnesty John in an effort to
please their corporate masters with predictable results. I and
most of my family voted for third party candidates in this
election and will continue to do so at the national level from
this point forward.

RINOS HAVE A PURPOSE
Re: Quin Hillyer’s More Sessions Needed:
After reviewing the home team, I am greatly encouraged. We have some great people on our side. I would love to dump some of the RINOs; but one must remember that aggravating as they might be they are usually from 50/50 districts and that is the best we can do. A more conservative representative cannot be elected there and if the RINO is toppled a Democrat may take the seat.
It is a hard lesson to learn, but there it is. We should
support and love those truly Conservative representatives and the
districts that elect them.

Re: Hal G.P. Colebatch’s A Little Light in the South Pacific:
Your correspondent Hal Golebatch is under the misapprehension
that, “Not only Labour but the smaller left-wing parties
including Labour’s ally, the eco-nut/Marxist Greens, were savaged
at the polling booths.” Besides the inaccuracy of the
description, the assertion is false. The Greens substantially
increased their proportion of the vote and increased their number
of MPs. The Greens gained nearly double the party vote of the Act
party and are the third largest party in Parliament. Savaged?
Bring it on.

HELL AND BACK
Re: George Neumayr’s Over Before It Began:
Ponder for a moment living in a hell so horrible you may not be able to contemplate such realities: The Hanoi Hilton and its sadistic guards. Place yourself in John McCain’s slippers. Torture is that wind which rides on the backs of the horses of death, so near, so close, and so evident. There is no normal afterward, just a life without those smiling faces bringing you your daily dose of real, live, terrible pain! Death becomes something you would embrace as if a long lost friend had arrived!
Fast forward to this campaign. McCain likes being thought of as a “maverick” for what reasons?
Go back, look at him on the floor, see him surviving. As he is able to leave his cell and walk among his fellow prisoners see how they try to comfort each other. He knows what strength can come from such behaviors, the will to live and fight on.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
