Women Leading The Way
Women Leading The Way
The latest round of state primaries proved what many expected; women would be leading the resurgence of conservatism in America. I for one am glad to see it. In my own little humble opinion, America is tired of members of the same Good Ol’ Boy network of politicians running for office. Many have been stating that America needs to change direction in order to return to glory.
Again, in my humble opinion, women are by nature more conservative than men in most areas including politics. No, I am not saying that men are generally to the left of Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and Claire McCaskell as this trio tends to be more on the outer left fringe of the political spectrum. Just IMHO women are more likely to be more cautious, more conservative, more analytical and more likely to know what the pulse of America truly is.
Minorities are also starting to get deeper into politics. As anyone noticed that the rising political stars among minority men happen to be conservative? I have. Other than black theology churches, most black Christian churches speak more on traditional values, family unity and personal responsibility than white Christian churches do. I for one am glad to see minority politicians finally coming to the forefront of the political world and standing for the principals they were taught in church and at home.
America has needed a new direction to go in for quite some time, but as usual, the political parties have prevented this from happening. Take for instance the election in South Carolina GOP primary race. The establishment got burned badly by Nikki Haley and the people of South Carolina. Though she has not yet won the GOP nomination, she ran some 25+ points higher than the State GOP backed Gresham Barrett. The same held true in California and Nevada, the establishment candidate lost. Even though Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) is a democrat, even she came under attack from the far left for not being progressive enough by the Unions and left wing Community Organizations.
America is tired of the same old politics and sick of new faces coming to Washington and then doing and acting the same as the person they were elected to replace. Thomas Jefferson once wrote to James Madison on his views of why a little rebellion every now and then is a good thing. Now I won’t go as far as to say that it should be accompanied by armed conflict or other violent action as Jefferson did, but times are different now than they were is the 1780’s. Today we have media outlets, public assemblies and ballot boxes with which to wage rebellion against the government. America is witnessing a modern day rebellion. So long as the conservative rebellions continue to be non-violent, this rebellion will again in my humble little old opinion, continue to grow as we of this nation continue to sicken over an ever encroaching and increasing powerful federal government.
**Personal Note: It has been a wonderful 2+ years writing for Al’s page. I would like to thank all of you for reading my opinions and providing comments. I am going to be taking a couple of months off from writing and thinking about politics in general. Instead, I will be visiting the outer banks of North Carolina in a couple of weeks and then enjoying the summer with my wife, daughter, grand-daughter and our respective families.
I wish all of you a safe and happy summer and if Al will have me back, I will be back writing opinions in the fall.
