If you are a newly converted conservative, or just a little rusty on current events, this is the post for you! I have spent some time gathering articles that explain some hot-button issues from a conservative viewpoint. If you read through 1/2 of the articles here, you will be ready to face anyone in a debate.
As a side note- I will be on vacation this week, so please forgive me if I am slower than usual responding to your comments.
All of the reasons why public healthcare will be worse than public housing

It’s not just about more money in your paycheck. Here are the reasons why low taxes are best for the country, and I included some resources on the Fair-tax plan as well:
The Hoax of Man-Made Global Warming
A list of reasons why the Climate Change panic of today, is no different from the vampire hysteria of the 1700’s

Before you read these, keep this in mind: The real debate about abortion has nothing to do with government attempting to regulate a woman’s body. Pro-Choicers argue that if a baby is in a woman’s body, it is her “property,” and she can do as she wishes with it. This was the same excuse used for keeping slaves. Eventually we agreed that a human being cannot be property. This is the real issue. It is about deciding at what point a person qualifies as a human being with the same rights as everyone else in this country (including criminals, illegal aliens, and even terrorists). One of the most important responsibilities of the government is to determine who exactly is covered by the Bill of Rights. This is not a religious issue, it is a Civil Rights issue.
