Waiting for Leadership






Another difference between Liberals and Conservatives is that Conservatives are willing to critique their leaders when they make mistakes. I don't see liberals doing that as much.

Take the latest article by Matt Towery. He has some very direct words for the President and other Republicans.
A day of reckoning is coming for Republicans and conservatives, and it is approaching rapidly.

Thanks to a series of natural disasters, unspeakable acts of terrorism and the responses to them, this country is headed beyond a mere budget crisis. We're drifting toward to a five-alarm financial fiasco.
Of course the liberals have a solution to this problem - raise taxes! The more money the government has and the less money you have, the better off we will all be. Fortunately Towery is a bit smarter than that; his solution involves cutting government programs, pork, and foreign aid.

Cutting government programs is hard and many of the voters won't like it. But it is the right thing to do. Now is the time to see whether or leaders are, in fact, leaders.
