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

Thoughts on Mia Love and a Brief Introduction to Tabula Rasa

Conservative Wanderer (CW) has kindly given me a corner of his platform to talk politics. I’m grateful. Before telling you a bit about myself, I’d like first to talk about Mia Love, the black conservative Utahn who wowed the convention last night. I’m proud to say that I live in Utah’s new fourth district and will have the honor of voting for Mia. I’m also a volunteer. Over at Ricochet, where CW and I hold forth from time to time, CW posted today about the “civil” leftist internet trolls who hacked Mia’s website in order to insert thoughtful phrases like “housen****r” to refer to her.

Let me just say that Mia is no one’s pawn. She is a mom (three daughters), a wife, committed to her church, mayor of a fast-growing city, and truly conservative. If that weren’t enough she’s beautiful, smart, and principled. She has a tough race against a long-time incumbent blue-dog, but I believe she’ll prevail. If you’ve got a few dollars sent them to her. She is a classy person and I’ll be proud to have her as my representative in Congress.
