Conservatives and progressives must find consensus in order to move our country forward. Only by working together can we defeat our true enemies: the regressives and radicals who would turn the clock back on human civilization.

Data must ALWAYS win!!
"Cravens and I, for example, both encountered respected scientists, men of honesty and integrity — in my case, the Nobel laureate physicists Hans Bethe and Luis Alvarez, among others — who quietly educated us in the relative risks and benefits of nuclear energy. As a result, we both concluded, independently, that the benefits greatly outweigh the risks."
