The conservative is concerned, first of all, with the regeneration of the spirit and character;with the perennial problem of the inner order of the soul, the restoration of the ethical understanding, and the religious sanction upon which any life worth living is founded. This is conservatism at its highest. - Russell Kirk

“The events in Lebanon and Grenada, though oceans apart, are closely related. Not only has Moscow assisted and encouraged the violence in both countries, but it provides direct support through a network of surrogates and terrorists….You know, there was a time when our national security was based on a standing army here within our own borders and shore batteries of artillery along our coasts, and, of course, a navy to keep the sea-lanes open for the shipping of things necessary to our well-being. The world has changed. Today our national Security can be threatened in faraway places.” Ronald Reagan 27 Oct 1983

I got back from Iraq in Nov 05. I’ve been posting here since the Spring of ‘98. I learned about FREEREPUBLIC from a link off of The Drudge Report. I enjoy reading, and I’ve visted, been to, or lived in 50 countries, and will likely see a few more before I’m done.
