Dear Fellow Conservatives,

Happy Independence Day! As we enjoy parades and picnics, and fireworks and family, I would like to offer three quotes that make me reflect on why we celebrate this day. Two quotes come from leaders with a mixed legacy, and one comes from a great American founder:

“Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of resistance.” –Woodrow Wilson

“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” –Nelson Mandela

“We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” –Thomas Jefferson

Roll back creeping tyranny. Build a better tomorrow for everyone. Guard the God-given rights of humanity. On July 4th, 1776, fifty-six Americans signed their names at the bottom of a document, pledging “our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor” to make those very goals a reality.

On July 4th, 2015, I’m not just celebrating that I have more freedom than most of the people on planet Earth. I’m not just celebrating that I’m proud to be an American. I’m celebrating the opportunity to carry the same torch of liberty lit by those fifty-six men 239 years ago today.

Will you carry that torch with me?

Let freedom ring,

Levi Rawls

Chair, San Juan County Republican Party

General Petraeus for Vice President?

‘Romney Picks Petraeus for Veep!’                 July 16, 2012

Herbert E. Meyer

Actually, no.  Gov. Romney hasn’t named his choice for vice president.  But were you electrified by that headline?  Did it pull you out of your chair, pump up your heart rate and make you believe, for the first time, that Obama’s on the ropes and this election is ours to win?  I thought so; me, too.

If the talking heads are right (and on rare occasions they are), Romney is playing this decision close to his chest.  No one seems to know whose advice, if anyone’s, he’s seeking.  But in the highly unlikely event that he calls me to chat about this, I’d tell him to go big, and to go for General David Petraeus.  Here’s why:

Petraeus is, quite simply, the most highly-regarded  American in public life.  Even those who opposed our military actions in Afghanistan and Iraq admire and respect this general.  He’s so obviously a brilliant, competent man.  And he’s always come across as low-key and personally modest.  By choosing Petraeus as his running-mate, Romney would send out a message to voters that he isn’t playing politics as usual; that he wants the most qualified people he can find for his administration — and that he’ll put the varsity team in place to confront a dangerous world.
