Fred lives again!
If you’re a principled conservative, I’m sure you’ve been anxious to hear what became of Fred Thompson since dropping out of the GOP primary race. He was one of the few candidates capable of expressing conservative beliefs, though his dislike for the daily march of a campaign doomed him in the every-second-counts media race.
Well, he’s turned up at Townhall.com. And I couldn’t be happier to hear from him. A sampling:
Now isn’t the time for conservatives to be looking for a tailored message or a politically expedient route to victory if the end result is going to be the inevitable slide toward the liberalization and secularization of America, and the growth of government and loss of freedom that inevitably ensues. For us conservatives it must be about principles and policies that are grounded in freedom, free markets and the rule of law.
It’s good to have you back, Mr. Thompson.
