More or less, we've had the same talking-heads, pundits, policy wonks and politicians yappin' at us for as long as I can remember ... Hey, maybe they'll get it right one of these days ...
The other day we talked about listening to new voices. I also offered a short list of intelligent conservative voices that I recommend you read.
It effectively illustrates that conservatism in America is, and has been since its emergence in the 1950s, "a wide river with many tributaries."
We can always find more to agree on than disagree though, especially when it comes to the task of defeating collectivism and defending liberty. On that we're a united front!
Indispensable to all this is a commitment to continuing self-education. Know your own case as thoroughly as possible–to be for freedom is to be a radical ... And remember John Stuart Mill’s line from On Liberty: “He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that.” Read the arguments of liberty’s adversaries—strive to know their case better than they do.
Here's a few more people on the right I highly recommend reading. I'll offer some from the left too, in a post near you.
The Camp of the Saints: Bob is a conservative through and through, and his fuse is growing short in regards to government. He may not know it yet, but I think his inner-libertarian is starting to shine through.
Conservative Hideout 2.0: Serious stuff, snark, you name it and you'll find it at the Conservative Hideout 2.0. I stop in every day, don't you?
motorcitytimes.com: Steve is living proof that conservative politics doesn't have to be boring!
Liberty Works: Boomerjeff puts a lot of work into his posts. When he provides numbers and analysis on health care for example, you know he's right!
Jack Hunter: Old school, no holds barred, hard-core conservatism.
The Tenther Grapevine: The blog of the Tenth Amendment Center.
Patrick J. Buchanan: Don't believe the nonsense spread by the Left about Buchanan. He's definitely a guy worth listening to.
The Holy Cause: "Christian libertarians are of the staunch belief that governments must not be aggressive or “steal” from their citizens in the form of taxation. And this is exactly what Christianity teaches through its gospels."
The Western Experience: Jason and Mike take their blogging seriously. They skip the soap opera and get right to the meat of the matter.
