My first blog post

Hello!

Check out my new blog! Tell me what you think. My first order of business is developing a “tag line” for myself. I was going to write, “musings of a conservative girl” but “conservative” does not describe me accurately. The word “conservative” can either describe a person who supports free markets or it can describe the Ayatollahs in Iran. Although “liberal” used to mean supporter of free markets, free thought, free speech, etc., we all know it’s been sabotaged by the left to mean “socialist.” And I can add the word “classic” to “liberal” as in “classic liberal” but it always seemed too weak to me. “Liberal” means “tolerant” which I am, up to a point, but not when it comes to criminals or terrorists. And I am not a libertarian for similar reasons–I am not an isolationist.

So how about, “musings from a girl who strongly supports free markets, a strong foreign policy, borders that are secured in a smart and fair way, the right to bear arms, strong currency, and straddles a fine conservative/libertarian line on many social issues.”

Catchy right? :p
