Last October, in the wake of the debate over placement of Harriet Miers on the federal Supreme Court, Rush Limbaugh penned an interesting opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal that contained a Reader’s Digest version on, generically, what conservatives believe. Although I’ve played with it stylistically, the text has not been altered:
We believe in:
the rule of law,
a color-blind society and
homeowner rights, and
the war on terrorism.
And at our core we embrace and celebrate the most magnificent governing document ever ratified by any nation – the U.S. Constitution. Along with the Declaration of Independence, which recognizes our God-given natural right to be free, it is the foundation on which our government is built and has enabled us to flourish as a people.
Works for me; I don’t remember reading this last October but that strikes me as a damn good general summation.
