“View From The Right”

I’ve been enjoying this site, especially the contributions from Lawrence Auster–this one for example. It might be described as a pro-war paleocon site; its authors seem to embrace the paleo label. If, on the other hand, you reject the notion that American right-wingers must be either paleos, neos, or libertarians, as I do, then the best description of the site’s writers may be “conservatives who emphasize the difference between conservatives and neocons more than most conservatives do, but who have lately been increasingly dismayed by some of the other anti-neocons on the Right.” But no doubt they’ll have come up with a better characterization of themselves by tomorrow, in response to this post.

It was like living under a waterfall. Ever notice that rain makes people a tad grumpy? I began to suspect a connection between the ... Read More
