I found your page because I've now been banned twice at Redstate for trying to argue about conservatism, statism, and even how Reagan built a coalition with moderates. I helped with the 2004 election for Bush in Pennsylvania and my wife served as a lawyer for Election Day, plus the 2006 Congressional elections, and yet I'm accused of being a lefty troll. Banned for defending a poster against blatant homophobia, trashed for suggesting Ron Paul's fiscal conservatism helped inspire the Tea Parties, and banned for thanking the moderators in stopping the nasty ganging up by community members to a brand new Republican who dared to say that we shouldn't question the character of John McCain's war stories.
Sadly, RedState reminds me of the Chinese Cultural Revolution where those who think are a danger to the orthodoxy. I think they do well in some activism as evidenced by their recent event in Atlanta, but without Eric they don't have much. I'm starting my own community shortly instead. I just never thought the Republican Party would leave me this way, the way Reagan felt with the Democrats.
Suffice to say, I know how you feel.Comment Posted By Rich On 1.09.2009 @ 19:45
Then you havenâ€™t been paying attention. Sir, please. It is true I have not paid attention to Fox news, Oâ€™reilly, hannity, coulter, limbaugh, haggerty, falwell, malkin, beck, swaggert, etcâ€¦So truly, I may have not been exposed to the â€˜informationâ€™ you are privy to. If you are serious â€“ that is your fear of being overrun â€“ there really is no sane response to that paranioa. I sincerely hope your children donâ€™t learn from your example. We need more sanity in this world, not less.
Tom, you're sad. Unlike you I don't get all of my information on this stuff from talking heads on partisan cable networks and websites. Your attempt to marginalize my observations and opinions by insinuating that I'm crazy is a shortcut to thinking. Why don't you try reading a book about this stuff. Or better yet since you're obviously coherent enough to use the web try doing some research on what I said. They called Churchill a madman too. Look how that turned out. Everybody has an ulterior motive. You can choose to acknowledge it exists, or stick your head in the sand and hope it goes away.Comment Posted By Rich On 22.12.2006 @ 10:30

Gotta disagree with you here. How many times do we have to hear that the goal of the religion of pieces is to populate an area then take it over. I personally don't want myself or my children to be forced to bow down to the death cult known as Islam because we were all afraid to insult Muslims. I think his comments are brave and necessary in a time when hysterical political correctness runs amokComment Posted By Rich On 21.12.2006 @ 16:52
Here is a link to a story about a peer reviewed Danish research paper that was presented at the UK Royal Society last Week.
It sets out a natural, as opposed to a man caused, explanation for global warming.
I do not think this heresy has received much coverage in the MSM.
And I bet the Media Party (dems -- I have decided they seem to exist only by virtue of media support) would hate it if they ever got to hear of it.

I seek out WWII vets and speak with them about their experience. Several invaded Normandy and they ALWAYS speak of the courage and bravery of the soldiers that didn't come home before they acknowledge their own service. I've blogged about several of these great men. Thanks guys for saving the world from the evil of the Nazis.Comment Posted By Rich On 6.06.2006 @ 21:39
It's a device (albeit awkward) to mention humans while criticizing animal cruelty; it gets the detached to pay at least some attention to animal suffering.
Abu Ghraib, however... idiotic & misdirected comparison.Comment Posted By Rich On 27.04.2006 @ 19:44
Can you please show me the right way to interpret these:
"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding."
--Proverbs 3:5 (KJV)
"Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ..."
--2 Corinthians 10:5 (KJV)
Many Thanks,Comment Posted By Rich On 30.11.2005 @ 15:08
Kat, I don't think he's qualified, period. And I do think its relgious cronyism.Comment Posted By Rich On 30.11.2005 @ 13:43
*points and laughs at irate fundies*
Bad, bad cronyist appointment. And his fundamentalist views make him a liability, especially in parts of the world, where they believe something different. Bigot?, maybe. But Christianity in codified bigotry so get of your high horses. Science his disproved lots of fundamental Christian claims â€“ flat earth, heliocentricity, made in 6 days etc. Christianity usually EVOLVES, after a period of torturing the heretics. Hereâ€™s a quiz. Did you asses all of the many world religions then make an informed decision, or was it what your parents taught you? I suspect the vast majority of you would be Muslim if youâ€™d grown up somewhere elseâ€¦ If you didnâ€™t examine them all and critically asses the merits of each, you canâ€™t argue with authority here. Sorry.
I think itâ€™d be great to have a Deputy Director of the United States Agency for International Development who believes god wants him to evangelize. Theyâ€™ll love that.Comment Posted By Rich On 30.11.2005 @ 11:10
