Bravo Mr. Hawkins. Just in case you missed it, Colin Powell was highly critical of Rush Limbaugh in an interview on CNN. At one point he said, “Can we continue to listen to Rush Limbaugh?” Mr. Powell, thank God more people listen to Rush than listen to you!
A.W.R. Hawkins’ article contrasting Powell’s political perspective with Limbaugh’s is terrific.
“Powell, like former Bush speech writer Michael Gerson, wants to remake conservatism into something without form or substance, something that is liberalism in all but name. They say the only conservatism that can be effective in future elections is conservatism divorced from conservative principles.
Powell and Gerson — and too many other phony conservatives — are the problem, not the solution. It was by their philosophy and political strategy that the Republican Party ended up abandoning conservatism in favor of McCainism. And that was the path to failure, not victory. “

“Republican U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss beat back a prolonged challenge from Democrat Jim Martin on Tuesday to win a second term in office after a bruising four-week runoff between the one-time University of Georgia fraternity brothers.
Chambliss’s double-digit victory dashed Democrats’ dreams of securing a filibuster-proof, 60-vote ‘super majority’ in the Senate and buoyed a Republican Party battered by staggering losses in the Nov. 4 general election.”
Chambliss campaigned on Conservative principles and look what happened. He won. Republicans need to keep that in mind as they go back to Washington D.C. I hope to see them use the filibuster often because in the next few years, Conservatives can expect to see a lot of highly partisan, highly liberal legislation coming down the pike. Now is not the time for bipartisanship!
Chambliss was probably helped by the fact that this run-off election was separate from the Obama mania that swept through on November 4. There was such a mob-mentality to election day this year. But, hard-core lefties are probably disappointed with Obama’s initial pre-Presidential decisions because he’s been masquerading as a centrist. Obama lightweights will eventually be disappointed because there’s simply no way he can deliver all that he’s promised. Hopefully in two years, Republicans will be able to pick up more seats based on the combination of their own Conservatism plus the disillusionment of Obama voters.

Today, I purchased a 9 mm handgun as a salute to our soon-to-be President, Barack Obama. I’d been shopping around for awhile and just hadn’t been in the mood to spend the money. This week’s election changed that, however, because liberals are sure to attack Second Amendment rights as part of their hope and change agenda. If you’re in the market for a gun of any sort, it may be wise to make room in the budget sooner, rather than later. If I may make a suggestion, buy something that they are sure to target, such as an “assault rifle” or a semi-auto handgun with a high capacity magazine. The value of those most evil of guns is sure to increase. The salesman who helped me today said that they had seen record sales since Tuesday. Today by about 3:30 pm, they had done $26,000 worth of gun sales.
Even if the spike in gun sales is only hype. even if the Obama administration does not take gun regulations as far as many Conservatives fear will happen, guns are just a damn good investment. Buy them legally, store them responsibly and defend your right to own them. The right to keep and bear arms is just one of those Conservative principles I’ll be discussing and upholding here on Bold Colors Blog.
In addition to my anecdotal evidence, here’s a link to a Reuters story about the increase in gun sales lately. Note the use of the phase “common sense measures.” President-elect Obama, please tell us exactly what that phrase means to you. Oh, wait, specificity about your agenda is not your forte.
Another from Spokane news station KXLY “Gun sales booming after Obama victory.” All American Firearms comes highly recommended–if you’re in the market for a gun, check them out!
