Thus, even as conservatives in the United States are working to find better ways to present our ideas in the 2014 and 2016 elections, we should pause a moment to celebrate some successes overseas.

FEULNER: Breaking the regulatory stranglehold

Nothing in life is certain but death and taxes, the saying goes. Unfortunately, the list doesn't stop there. We can add one other inescapable component: regulations. Published December 31, 2012

FEULNER: No time to get LOST

"It is an outrage." The source of Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta's anger? The fact that the United States has yet to approve a treaty known as the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea, which often goes by the acronym LOST. Published December 10, 2012

FEULNER: Paying the price of preparation

At the memorial to the USS Arizona, you can watch droplets of oil from the sunken ship drift to the surface. Some say the ship is weeping for the 1,177 service members killed at Pearl Harbor 71 years ago this week. Published December 3, 2012

FEULNER: Battling a bailout culture

Some Americans believe in the founding principle that individuals are responsible for their own well-being and will voluntarily aid those in need. Others believe that people should be required to take care of their fellow citizens. Published November 26, 2012

FEULNER: Beware a 'grand bargain'

Politics, they say, is the art of compromise. You give something to get something. Everyone ends up with half a loaf. You don't get everything you want, but everyone comes out ahead. Published October 31, 2012

FEULNER: Spiraling state of welfare spending

When the news from Washington contains words such as million, billion and trillion, it's all too easy for our eyes to glaze over. Numbers that big aren't easy to grasp. But in an era when the federal government continues to spend as if the party will never end, it's essential to try. Published October 22, 2012

FEULNER: Cuban missile crisis, 50 years later

FEULNER: Michigan unions' Election Day pushback

It sounds so innocuous -- the Protect Our Jobs amendment. At a time of high unemployment, who wouldn't find such a concept appealing? So union leaders are pulling out all the stops to get this measure, better known as Proposal 2, approved by Michigan's voters on Election Day. Published October 8, 2012

"Marriage is a wonderful institution," H.L. Mencken once quipped, "but who would want to live in an institution?" Great line. But in the real world, the more we learn about marriage, the more we realize how vital it is. Published October 1, 2012

FEULNER: Restoring respect for the Constitution

John Adams got everything right except the date. "The Second Day of July 1776," he wrote to his wife, "ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with [Shows], Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more."

FEULNER: For homeland security, it’s bureaucracy as usual

On Sept. 10, 2001, I flew back to Washington from Frankfurt, Germany, with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. We discussed a host of domestic and foreign policy issues before landing at Washington Dulles International Airport on that bright, crisp day. Published September 11, 2012

FEULNER: Economic recovery in name only

So how's the economic recovery treating you? For many Americans, the answer is, not well. In fact, some may ask: What recovery? Published September 4, 2012

FEULNER: Teachers unions' pressure is failing

Hearing teachers unions complain about extending school choice to American families is nothing new. They have been spreading misinformation about efforts to break up their monopoly on education for years. With millions of students going back to school, we can, unfortunately, expect them to turn up the volume. Published August 27, 2012

FEULNER: America is exceptional

Ask someone to describe what sets America apart from the rest of the world and the word "equality" almost surely will come up. Published August 20, 2012
