UPDATE: REPLAY ADDED BELOW!! Their Finest Hour returns live to Vigilant Liberty Radio on Monday, September 15, 2014 at 10pm Eastern, 7pm Pacific! For this week’s program, I’ll be welcoming a man who’s both a friend and has a fantastic depth and breadth of knowledge on American politics: Tom Dougherty (@Tom1247), founder and editor of the blog Practical Politicking (@PracticalPols).
It is past time conservatives start running their campaigns with a “third rail” issue – the supposed politically untouchable – as a centerpiece. We’re all fully knowledgeable that government spending is fraught with waste, fraud, and abuse. Our spending levels on government programs that are nothing but wealth redistribution whose costs far outweigh the value received and are completely unsustainable as we saddle future generations with more and more debt.
“Wait!”, I hear you say, “Aren’t conservatives already fully on board with entitlement spending reform?” Of course they are, for the most part. That isn’t what I’m talking about. I’m talking about defense spending.
