    I see Kyle as a future star in the so called “conservative” blogosphere though I suspect he is more of a libertarian in the good sense of the word which is why I like him so much.

    Now having said this I do actually disagree with the “America is a shining city on a hill” Reagan concept. While we are indeed an example, or should be, this term is rooted in Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.” As such it speaks not of human government but of spiritual light that only comes from faith in (willful subjection to) Jesus Christ. I was always somewhat uncomfortable with Reagan equating conservatism, at its very best still flawed, with the purity of Christ. Having said this there certainly is no greater form of government than that of a representative republic limited in power by a constitution that recognizes individual liberty as being both a right given by God himself and free from the undue limitations of government.

Toss in your "two cents" if you care to. Fair warning, you might get change ;-)
