Welcome to Solomon's Conservative Wisdom

Welcome to my Conservative Blog, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom. The name comes from my middle name and the historical & biblical figure King Solomon, now I make no claim to have Solomon's Wisdom, but I do have Common Sense. I welcome anyone to join in and comment about anything I may have written, posted or one of my Articles / Columns. This blog is dedicated to conservatism and freedom. I invite all conservatives to join in, I don’t mind non-conservatives joining in (after all the only way to change liberals and fence-sitters is to debate them and change their minds, some are just too hard headed to admit they are wrong) . All I expect is a respectful debate.

I have recently split my postings to a few other blogs I own, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom II, and Solomon's Conservative Wisdom at Townhall.com, to spread out some of my postings.
So check them out and tell me what you think.

Please comment on my Articles and Columns, as well as any other post that is not just a link to a story.

I want to know what others think and have a debate. And make sure to check out my Articles and Columns if you haven't already.

So tell everyone you know.

"Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best; it removes all that is base. All men are afraid in battle. The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty. Duty is the essence of manhood."

General George S. Patton

The Trouble with Mandatory Minimums

A couple of weeks a go Bill O'Reilly did his usual desk pounding this time for Mandatory Minimum sentences. See here. As usual O'Reilly only goes skin deep on the subject without really looking at why judges are giving such low sentences to criminals. Now other then the fact it's Bill O'Reilly who's head is so hard you could hit it with an asteroid a mile wide and it would survive, the real problem is the people who elect progressive judges or progressive politicians how then appointee those judges.

You see the real problem is when people just vote for candidate AAA or for some random guy on the ballot, which often benefits the liberal progressive politicians and judges. That problem is compounded when people like O'Reilly compound the problem with Mandatory Minimums and while it can be a good thing when used against pedophiles and rapists when you start getting in to other areas where there would be a need for common sense to rule you remove it. And even then it is no guarantee that O'Reilly's precious Mandatory Minimums would survive if the Supreme Court's Chief Dread Pirate Coward Justice Roberts joined with the progressive judges on an extreme case and declare them unconstitutional under the cruel and unusual clause.
Then all those criminals you thought were off the streets are suddenly all out at one time.

The only real long term solution is to vote in conservative and constitutionalists in to those seats who will judge cases appropriately. That does not mean it will be fixed everywhere but we will not be handing our power to people who have messed things up for the last century.
