Fred Thompson: Blogging on

I realized several months ago that Fred Thompson would not be our next president, but I did not understand how much we were losing out on until now. Fred Thompson is now blogging at, a conservative news and views site that I visit frequently. His first post is rather amazing; it shows exactly what we'll be missing in Washington the next 4 years, unless McCain decides to have Fred be is V.P. We can only hope...
Here's a taste of what Fred has to say:

First, conservatism is alive and well in America; don’t let anyone tell you differently. And by conservatism, I don’t mean the warmed-over “raise your hand if you believe …” kind of conservatism we see blooming every election cycle. No, I’m speaking of the conservatism grounded in principles based upon enduring truths: an understanding of the importance of human nature in the affairs of individuals and nations. Respect for the lessons of history, the importance of faith and tradition. The understanding that while man is prone to err, he is capable of great things when not subjugated by a too-powerful government. These are the principles that inspired our Founding Fathers, and resulted in a Constitution that delineated the powers of the central government, established checks and balances among the branches of government and further diffused governmental power by a system of Federalism.

Like I said, amazing. Read the rest here. Bookmark the page and visit it often. I have a feeling we'll all benefit from his wisdom in the long days ahead...
