Clark County Conservative was started by Lew Waters, a conservative Vietnam Veteran living in Hazel Dell, Washington. Like many others in Southwest Washington, I grew tired to frequent bashing of conservative views and values by the local newspaper of record, the Columbian aka “the Lazy C” as they also frequently have been unable to find any fault with liberal Democrats. My intent since opening in June 2008 was to express my views and thoughts on Clark County and Southwest Washington that has long been missing in the biased media and my efforts have continued since, in spite of efforts from the hierarchy of the local Republican Party to silence this blog or marginalize it since according to them, “I’m not conservative enough” for their needs.

Why blog

Clark County Conservative is an Independent Conservative blog, unaffiliated with any political party or group and continues to provide an independent conservative view for Southwest Washington.

I don’t pretend to know everything nor do I claim any special honors or education, just a blue collar Southern boy tired of seeing the country he fought for spit on by its own citizens and the conservatism that made America the great country she is ridiculed, marginalized and demonized.

With allegiance to neither political party, the intent of this blog remains to speak out on issues elected officials and the so-called newspaper of record prefer to remain hidden, regardless of which party. The blog will also actively support my fellow Veterans.
