Oh my goodness! The “conservative” Republican House and Senate leaders don’t seem to want to live up to their promises to cut spending and cut taxes and undo regulations!!!! Oh goodness, what, oh what, should we in the “center-right” of America do?

My question for every Front Page and Member Diary issue proponent: What are you going to DO about it?
I will not belabor the point. Much “political” discussion is had here at Redstate, mostly about legislative issues and candidates. Take a look at the subject matter of the Diaries and Front Page articles. They almost always focus on some political issue.
