JOHN HAYWARD Here's the awful truth about wars: they begin long before the first shot is fired. Wars do not begin during the eleventh hour of frantic diplomacy and strategic maneuvering.

MICHAEL TANNER The budget and spending proposals released last week by former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney offer a stark illustration of both the promise and peril associated with a Romney candidacy.

DAVID LIMBAUGH It's almost 2012, and we have a black president, yet the white ghost of racial tensions still haunts our national politics. Will it ever end?

WASHINGTON TIMES This isn't your father's America. As promised, President Obama is "fundamentally transforming" the nation with a plan to flood the United States with individuals whose hearts belong to other lands.

Federal spending has gone up 5 percent in the first nine months of this year alone... (more)
