Montgomery County, enough said I am sure.
Tend to be rather hawkish on Defense, Foriegn Affairs and Veterans issues. Of late worried terribly about the direction of capital spending. Always been a problem whenever you give government a dollar they will find a way to spend a dollar ten. But now it seems worse than ever.
Up from Liberalism, Buckley; Conscience of a Conservative, Goldwater; Surrender is Not an Option, Bolton; Things that Matter, Krauthammer; Liberty Amendments, Levin.
I hope to gain some new friends as well as some interesting thoughts. Conservatism has always been defined by the ideas of those who espouse its principles. Increasingly it appears that people who are functionaries in party politics are dominating the discourse when philosophical answers should be in play. It would be a delight to be among people who give the latest ideas of conservative culture and give those ideas a good workout.
Marylander who is outnumbered living in the People's Republic looking for intellectuals of like mind. What better than a book club?
