Jed is right. There is a reason that little “c” conservatives are gaining ground in European elections, whether it’s the death of the EU constitution, their gains in Britain and Germany, etc.
But the gains they have made aren’t enough, the Conservatives in Britain have succeeded through essentially an anti-American position, while the Germans have gained by making promises their economy can’t sustain without true economic change. If Europe is to transform itself, both nations must come closer to the U.S. conservative position both domestically (economically and socially) and international (pro-national defense). That can only happen with a strong America to take them by the hand and show them the way.
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?
