And Away We Go...

Welcome to my little corner of the great ChicagoNow universe… Man does that sound canned. Let’s start again… Welcome to Publius Forum at ChicagoNow, “It’s What’s Happening NOW!”

So, what sort of thing will this “Publius Forum” be, you might ask? Fair warning, first of all, because my writing is from the conservative direction. I am a proud American, proud of our traditions, our history and our political conventions. I am wholly positive that, all things considered and in context to the rest of human history, the U.S.A. is the single best thing that ever happened to mankind. And yes, I really do believe that.

I am not a politician and have never been a paid political operative, but I have been a volunteer for several (John Cox in 2004, Bush in 2000, and State Senator Steve Rauschenberger in between that time). I am also in contact with several conservative state policy and advocacy groups. I have participated with (in no particular order) Americans for Prosperity, Americans for Tax Reform, The Illinois Policy Institute, Freedom Works, The American Liberty Alliance, The Institute forTruth In Accounting, The Sam Adams Alliance, and a few others. I am not a member or a paid operative of any of these organizations, but have attended their events to report on them.

I have also interviewed many of our Illinois Republican candidates and folks from outside Illinois such as Glenn Reynolds, J.D. Hayworth, and many others.

I have been at this political and social writing game since 2001, before the towers fell, and have been on Fox News, CNN, in such newspapers as The New York Times and the L.A. Times, the Washington Times and Post, and magazines like Time and Germany’s Der Spiegel. I have been on the G. Gordon Liddy show, my work has been featured on Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage and Neil Bortz, and I have been a guest on radio shows big and small all across the country and Satellite radio.

In other words, I have really been around and had some great exposure for my work. The good Lord has been kind to me, for sure.

So, please stick around as I begin to populate these pages with entries on all sorts of interesting news, opinion, and local Illinois politics. You might get mad at me, but it’ll always be fun!
