How conservative thoughts can be refined

When I was invited to contribute to this blog, I was a bit hesitant because I feel that I'm less than eloquent in expressing political ideas. However, there are some conservative writers that have helped refine my conservative thinking. Although I've not always agreed with every word they've said, these are my favorites:

Victor Davis Hanson
Jeff Jacoby from the Boston Globe
Charles Krauthammer from the Washington Post

None of these men can be considered hard-right in their thinking. Rather, they provide a center-right view that balances liberty with compassion.

And while Christopher Hitchens can certainly not be considered "conservative" or "liberal," he, too, is one of my favorites. Mr. Hitchens understands the threat of terrorism and what it means to our freedoms.

If you're not familiar with these writers, click on the links above. They are sure to provide some very good food for thought.
