When one declares oneself to be a conservative, one is not, unfortunately, thereupon visited by tongues of fire that leave one omniscient. The acceptance of a series of premises is just the beginning. After that, we need constantly to inform ourselves, to analyze and to think through our premises and their ramifications. We need to ponder, in the light of the evidence, the strengths and the weaknesses, the consistencies and the inconsistencies, the glory and the frailty of our position, week in and week out. Otherwise, we will not hold our own in a world where informed dedication, not just dedication, is necessary for survival and growth.

Welcome To A New Team Member

At Conservative Convictions, we are doing more than just talking about the issues of the day. We are working hard to build a place for conservatives to rally...to unite...to grow in numbers and force change in our party. We want to build a coalition of conservative voices who can speak to the GOP. Voices that will speak loudly to the establishment that is far out of touch with the true base of the GOP.

Sam Huntington, who blogs at Praesidium Respublicae is someone who deeply believes in conservative principles and can well articulate what it means to be a conservative. That blog also has several contributors, and there is good content to be found. You will find the posts thought provoking, motivating, and intellectual. As we build a place with a positive and actionable message, these pieces will solidify our conservative convictions so that we may believe what we espouse, and speak with confidence as we progress.

As always, please comment often and take some ownership of this site. We want everyone to contribute and be a part of this new and exciting movement!
