To my fellow conservatives, I've learned and thought about a lot of political issues in my four years here at TCU. And, to the liberals, I think you'll find I'm fairly objective. Before I graduate, I'd like to leave you with my thoughts about what we, as conservatives, have right and what we're getting wrong.The first thing we have right is our patriotism - loving America is never the wrong thing to do. Patriotism is what made this country great and will keep it going. We also support our troops, which is the right thing to do.
The victorious powers of World War II created the United Nations in hope of staving off another war. What they ended up doing was creating a bureaucratic and ineffective organization that does not have the power to preserve peace. Primarily, the Security Council, the U.N.'s most important decision-making body, does not work. The five nations with veto power on the council are Russia, China, France, England and the United States.
What does this mean?
Barack Obama is one of the more promising presidential candidates to come along in the last few years.He's easy on the eyes, speaks well and claims to be a moderate. He sounds like a shoo-in. However, it's likely there's more hype than substance to this presidential hopeful.
Obama's voting record is very short and, from what we have seen, has been extremely liberal. An independent, liberal, political organization, Americans for Democratic Action, gives Obama a 95 percent liberal rating, which matches Sens. Hillary Clinton and John Kerry.
