    Now is the time for plain speaking.

    It’s time to call a spade a spade. Or, in this case, it’s time to call an Elf an Elf. Oh, we’ve danced around the issue and called them by many names. In the 1960s, our people called them “hippies.” People today sometimes call them hipsters, but hipster-ism is a...

    I guess what I should say is

    that I used to be a Conservative, but I naturally drifted into the Libertarian realm of ideologies. Do others here feel they're going through this transition as well?

    Per se, I am not conservative.

    However, I am conservative when financial and personal responsibility issues are discussed. One must take charge of his or her own actions, and one must not be responsible for the welfare of other people. Should one be forced to donate to a charity or volunteer in a help...

    My Conservative Philosophy

    The West is one bitter old codger.
