Longtime combatant Neal B. Freeman looks at the GOP, and conservatives’ place in it, from the early days of NR on.

Note: This column originally appeared in National Review on December 4, 2013   I understand that you’ve been involved in the GOP civil war for some time. Only 50 years or so. I came in late.   How did you first become involved? I headed Youth for Goldwater in New York. Wasn’t Goldwater’s principal opponent for the Republican nomination, Nelson Rockefeller, governor of New York at the time? I had grown up in New York and at some point began to fear that Rockefeller would be governor for life. Mine, as well as his.   Why didn’t you support Rockefeller? His big-government Republicanism was ’roided up. ...

The Problem For Folks Like Us

I heard it first at the barber shop. Then at the airport. And then from callers to a radio show. Folks like us seem to think we have a problem. They think that we have too many candidates, and that the candidates will spend too much money tearing one another down, and that the process may produce, after a burst of fratricidal campaign spots, a mortally damaged nominee. This concern is unlike us. Folks like us tend to encourage dissent and welcome debate; we are the permanent insurgency and we thrive on the hurly-burly of controversy. But now that we’re up against the glacial advance of Clinton Inc., these folks seem to be saying, maybe we should ...

On this Veterans Day, we say thanks

This Veterans Day, we honor those Americans who fought and served in the U.S. Armed Forces. We commemorate their sacrifice and thank them for preserving and protecting our freedom. It’s no stretch to say that if not for our veterans, none of us would be afforded the opportunity to live in the great United States of America. Unfortunately, this year saw a string events inflicting more hardship on our troops. For much of 2014, the Department of Veterans Affairs struggled to honestly answer questions about cover-ups and wait times at VA medical centers that resulted in more than one veteran death. So while agency bureaucrats profited, veterans ...

Federal tax revenue breaks a new record – and that’s a problem

News out of the Treasury Department [1] this week showed that federal tax revenue for fiscal year 2014 exceeded $3 trillion – an increase of nearly $247 billion from the previous fiscal year. It’s the first time the federal government has collected that much in taxes – ever. It’s maybe the one thing under President Obama that’s “better off” than it was six years ago, depending on how you look at. That the federal tax coffers have grown to record highs (thanks to American taxpayers) is no surprise given the Obama Administration’s liberal policies. What’s more surprising (or frustrating) is how none of that is reflected in the ...
