My blog's title has changed, if you haven't noticed. This new title is designed to more accurately represent the new status of myself, and of all true conservatives, now that the Democrats are ruling the roost once more. As the blurb beneath the title denotes, we are down, for now, but we definitely aren't licked yet. To paraphrase the immortal words of The Terminator, "We'll be back!!" In the meantime, the conservative underground movement has its home here, and in other similar blogs and alternative media outlets.

The left has succeeded, over the past eight years, in characterizing "conservative" as a dirty word in American politics, much as we did the word "liberal" primarily during the Reagan Era. Maybe we had it coming. I don't know. But it has certainly worked well for them. It has gotten to the point where far too many politicians, who were formerly considered conservative, are now acting apologetic for being what they are (or once were.) Under President Bush's enigmatic "Compassionate Conservatism" (and I still can't figure out what that means, for the life of me), we have gone steadily downhill and moderate, outright liberal, and RINO Republicans have hijacked our party right out from under us. We are still very much the base of that party, but we've been steadily swept under the rug for eight years. Gee, thanks, George W.!!! You've managed to disenfranchise the heart and soul of the Republican Party and replace it with "Democrat Lite!" No freakin' wonder we've lost the past two elections!!!

Voters now have no clear choice at all. If Republicans are going to act like Democrats, then why not just elect the genuine article and be done with it? This is like trying to replace the original product with some off-brand, half-assed copy. It is futile. You can't outspend a liberal Democrat (although the RINOs in Congress have tried to.) You can't out-socialize a socialist. And you definitely can't make deals with socialists. You'll end up losing your shirt every time. And so we have. Abraham Lincoln -- the first GOP president -- is probably tossing and turning in his grave. So are our Founding Fathers, and all they stood for. What happened to the small central government they created? It grew into a leviathan and lately the Republicans, who once stood for shrinking it, have aided only in increasing its size even more. We are in deep doo-doo if this trend continues much longer.

This blogger will never apologize for his conservatism. Political Correctness be damned!! I am a Reagan Conservative and am very proud of it. I hold my head high, because I know the truth. I know how things really do work in America, and don't base my beliefs on some illusory, self-serving idea of how I think they should work. I am both a realist and a true intellectual, and not a pseudo-intellectual, as so many on the left side of the street are prone to be. And I'm convinced that's the best way to be, especially in these troubling times. You can join my new conservative underground, by reading me, and by taking part yourself, if you happen to agree with me.

Lose any shame that you've been made to feel. Free yourself and work to take back our political party again. Patch things up so that we can re-emerge, once the liberals screw things up (and they will, trust me.)

It's going to be a wild ride, the next four years. Will you join me?
