What few people — and even fewer people among self-avowed “conservatives” — ever bother to ask is whether the popular understanding of conservatism is an accurate understanding. 

 Delegates Andrew McNulty and Richard Ford, who were aboard the GOP’s "Wayward Bus," speak out about their undue delay at the Republican National Convention in Tampa last week.

The Democratic Party officially supports jamming scissors into an innocent partially born baby’s tiny skull before vacuuming its brain out through a tube and disposing of the body — the horrifying practice known as “partial-birth abortion,” long backed by President Obama — a draft version of its platform revealed. Taxpayers, meanwhile, should be expected to pay for the barbaric procedure, Democrats said in their platform, almost universally expected to be adopted at the Democratic National Convention. And the American people’s money must also continue unconstitutionally flowing to abortion and lobbying giant Planned Parenthood no matter what.

 After reading Barack Obama's book Dreams from My Father, it became painfully clear that he has not been searching for the truth, because he assumed from an early age that he had already found the truth — and now it was just a question of filling in the details and deciding how to change things.

 In a ruling that could have a significant impact on the outcome of this year's presidential election, a federal judge on August 31 issued a preliminary injunction against an Ohio law that eliminated the final three days of early in-person voting for most voters, while allowing exceptions for military personnel and Ohio voters living overseas.

 Writing about the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to review a discrimination lawsuit filed against the University of Texas, two conservatives — Roger Clegg and John Rosenberg — argue that efforts to achieve racial “diversity” on college campuses are nothing more than reverse discrimination against whites and Asians.

 While around Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, have threatened to sue officials with the Greencastle-Antrim School Board if they continue to open their meetings in prayer, their cohorts in Tennessee have temporarily lost a bid to stop prayers by officials in Hamilton County.

 Lawmakers are investigating the Obama administration’s controversial decision to purchase over 100 advertisements touting so-called “green jobs” on the far-left MSNBC cable television outlet using “stimulus” funds, raising serious questions among analysts about misappropriation of taxpayer money to reward allies of the president who parrot White House talking points. No other TV media channels received similar contracts and no jobs were “created.”  

Chris Hedges worries that outright revolt may soon be the only option available to those fighting against the despotism of the Establishment.  This sentiment seems consistent with the following statement of Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence: "But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

In the wake of his “rude” treatment at the Republican National Convention last week in Tampa, several Internet sites are repeating rumors that Ron Paul (R-Texas) will announce a third-party run for the White House.  Adding fuel to this fire is Dr. Paul’s scheduled appearance Tuesday night on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
