A Voice in the Wilderness In Defense of "Mere Conservatism"

Paul Ryan Needs To Be VP

I think Rep. Paul Ryan is my favorite politician holding office today. He is brilliant, articulate, and (thus far) controversy-free.  He is a man of substance.

Although he didn't want to run for president, I am desperately hoping that Mitt Romney (the presumptive nominee) will be able to convince the Wisconsin congressman to join his ticket in 2012.  Rep. Ryan's speech at CPAC yesterday was solid, and well worth your time.  Take a gander:

For more on Paul Ryan, here's Part 1 of an in-depth interview he gave to Peter Robinson on Uncommon Knowledge last fall. If you listen until the end of Part 5, you will get to hear a Twitter question from yours truly that makes the Representative chuckle. Enjoy!

So good!

What is “Mere Conservatism”?

The basic ideas, ideals, and values that generally define and characterize the central tenets of what today might be termed "modern conservative thought."

We believe that a proper understanding of history, economics, and theology leads to certain conclusions. Many of these are the same conclusions our Founding Fathers arrived at in constructing a "more perfect union."

All ideas and opinions are welcome; not all are correct.
