The Conscience of a Conservative

Sully has a great post on why he left the right. I’m afraid I have to agree. The conservative alliance was always an uneasy one. I was never completely happy with sharing the party with the Religious Right and the neocons. Now that they have completely taken over the party and abandoned even the pretense of being a small government party, what have they got to offer me? Not being Democrats? That’s not enough anymore.

A similar post from Charles Johnson details how he went from being a climate skeptic to a climate “believer”. Again, it mirrors my own journey. The last IPCC report shook my disbelief in AGW. And the continual barrage of talking points from the skeptics has pushed me even further. I don’t support cap and trade. But I do support action.
