A healthy attitude...

Chris Cannon's attitude is the type of thing I wish we had more of in DC.

Quite frankly, his defeat is a bad sign. He had a 96% ACU rating in 2007 - which is not exactly a failing grade - or at least it didn't use to be a failing grade. I guess now, the commissar wing of conservatism will go after you year after year until they get you.

They don't want principle. They want blind obedience.

That is not what conservatism is about.... or at least not what I thought conservatism was about.

I'm not leaving conservatism.... conservatism's leaving me.

What I find disturbing is the fact that there is now this 100% purity requirement. I don't really understand it, but then I'm not a pure conservative. I'm a Republican. What passes for "Conservative" today is so far removed from what it was when Reagan was POTUS, he would be considered a moderate today.

They're the ones with the problem - not you and I.

You can't leave what you never were part of. Time for you to quit denying what you are.
