A very good opportunity for conservatives to speak and hear what others think. I didn't catch as much as I'd hoped. While Glenn Beck is not my favorite, I caught most of his address and he hammered home the points that people are concerned about. I liked that he talked about 'the opportunity to fail,' something missing from our lexicon for too long. It's out of many failures that success often is born. With risks, comes the possibility of either failure or success. Equating the US spending under Bush and moreso under Obama with a drunk is probably the best analogy that I've heard. Will America reach bottom? Have we already? November will give a good indication. Now the low point, picked up by reading. It is one thing to say that within any party extremists will be present, that in fact is a truism. What isn't is allowing them a place of prominence, taking their money and in return allowing them to 'sponsor.' I couldn't back Ron Paul because of such back when, I can't see myself aligned with those that do. This is serious if Conservatives really do care about the Constitution and wanting a better country: Power Line - Return of the John Birch Society? Power Line - Return of the John Birch Society?
