Redstate’s purposes and how BEST to carry them out
I took a look at the professed purposes of Redstate, which you can find here (Go to Help, click on the “rules for posting”). Here they are: The purpose of RedState.com is: * to promote conservative ideals within the vehicle of the Republican Party, * to clean house in the Republican party, * to help elect conservative Republicans, * and to encourage and educate conservative | Read More »
Our Republican Party — It’s really strong, no?
Let’s take a look at our Republican Party. I’ll bet you think it’s in really great shape in its active ranks. As we all know, every Republican National Committee delegate seat is filled. You may have watched some of the proceedings on C-Span of the RNC annual meeting and elections. Yessiree, everyone was so happy and everything seemed so perfect. All the officer positions were | Read More »
For once I’m looking forward to April 15: “Atlas Shrugged: Part 1″ hits the theaters
“It always begins with ‘Atlas Shrugged.'” I became a member of the Conservative Book Club back in the late 1970s and I recall a line like that in their monthly mailer advertising Ayn Rand’s books. I started with “Atlas Shrugged.” And then read just about everything else Ayn Rand wrote that I could get my hands on. Joined an Objectivist Club. Watched a couple of | Read More »
AZ 2012 Open Senate Seat: The Ron Johnson Model
From the diaries by Erick Well, I awoke this morning, hustled the kids off to school, and then heard the good news: Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl would be announcing today that he would not, after all, seek a third term. I wonder why? Well, it might have something to do with the fact that political landscape is changing here in Arizona from “the bottom up,” | Read More »
Vermont Strategy Update: This Morning I Couldn’t Pronounce “Republican Party National Convention Delegate,” Now I Are One.
A Redstate friend who is on hiatus informs that this morning he attended his county Republican Party’s breakfast meeting and expressed an interest in becoming a member of the county Republican Party Executive Board. Because a vacancy existed, he’s been informed he’ll be approved, formally, as a member when the Executive Board meets later this month to vote on the matter. He also volunteered to | Read More »
Mission Accomplished: New Conservative Precinct Committeemen Elect Conservative Republican Leaders — Including the State Chairman
I’d like conservative Republicans to make 2011 be “The Year of the Precinct Committeeman” because, if that happens, conservatives will then be in a position to elect conservatives to the leadership posts inside the Republican Party and be in the best position to get out the vote for the best conservative candidates in the all-important, traditionally-very-low-turnout primary elections. In other words, conservatives would engineer a | Read More »
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the most responsible for the decline of America of them all?
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the most responsible for the decline of America of them all? Think about it. I’m tired or all the whining by conservatives on this site and generally. “It’s Boehner’s fault!’ “It’s McConnell’s fault!” “The Republicans better do this! The Republicans better do that! Or else!” Or else what, exactly? With over half of the Republican Party precinct committeeman | Read More »
The Real Question: Are You Going To Just Write, Just Talk, Or Are You Going to DO SOMETHING About Your Pet Issue in 2011?
Go to the Redstate Member Diaries list. Look at the titles. See any solutions to the issues discussed? Read the Diaries. See any concrete proposals or strategies for HOW to change things politically? Maybe Redstate is just a debating society. I thought it was a “political activism” site. Do you want to “do something” other than inform people about your pet issue? Do you want | Read More »
The Main Enemy: Do YOU want to defeat it? Will you help?
Some of you may remember Walt Kelly’s political cartoon strip “Pogo.” One of the main theme’s of Kelly’s political cartoon was, basically, that Americans had only themselves to blame for the awful things the federal government foisted upon them. Kelly was correct. The catch phrase of the cartoon was, “We have met the enemy and he is us.” Got a mirror? Conservatives. Lots of talk. | Read More »
They stopped complaining about the Republican Party and did something about it.
Constitutional Conservatives Now In All Leadership Positions In Arizona’s Legislative District 6 and Pinal County and in 4 of the 5 Positions in Legislative District 17 You may know that I argue that if we conservatives want to change the Republican Party, we need to become members of it – in other words, get inside it. That means becoming precinct committeemen. LD 6 On Nov. | Read More »
