Conservative Wanderer

“A troubled and afflicted mankind looks to us, pleading for us to keep our rendezvous with destiny; that we will uphold the principles of self-reliance, self-discipline, morality, and, above all, responsible liberty for every individual that we will become that shining city on a hill.” — Ronald Wilson Reagan

Chicago Goes Nationwide: Parties Collect $600K From Dead People

On Twitter last night, the joke went around that we have absolute proof that Osama bin Laden and Muammar Gaddafi are dead because they just registered to vote in Chicago.
