Practice, practice, practice writing. Writing is a craft that requires both talent and acquired skills. You learn by doing, by making mistakes and then seeing where you went wrong.

The Enemy of My Enemy

 

One of the first things I said at the July 4th Tea Party when I opened the event is that all of us conservatives have the same goal, despite our differences. At the end of the day, we want the government out of our lives so that we can succeed - or fail - on our own.

Personally, I'm not a social conservative. I am a fiscal conservative. But I recognize that while I consider banning gay marriage to be a social injustice, it's not a grave threat to our society. Unfair? Sure. The end of America? Not even close.

What will kill America is the escalation of national debt. Most social conservatives agree with me on that front and won't vote for Obama or his allies. Gays, on the other hand, will vote for Obama - and to their eventual financial ruin. So I eagerly and gladly join with the social conservatives in this fight. I don't agree with them about everything, but they are my allies in arresting the jerk of government toward centralized control.

Despite our disagreements, there is a larger battle here. We can take up exactly what "freedom of religion" means later, once we ensure the continuity of our nation. First things first, ya know?
