ChangeJar Conservative puts his money where his mouth is — 2012 edition
Introduction For those who have wondered where my login on redstate comes from, it was part of an idea that I had a few years back. The idea is simple — set up a change jar.

Three Ways We Can Use Social Media to Help Romney/Ryan
Many of us do not consider ourselves social media gurus, but there are three relatively easy things that we can do to help the Romney/Ryan team in the next two and a half months. That will take small amounts of time, but pay off big if done as a large group of conservatives.

Financing the Revolution Through Your Change (my answer to ColdWarrior’s challenge)
ColdWarrior challenged us to ask “What are we going to do to make a difference in 2012?” Back in 2010, I came up with an idea. I passed it around to a few people and a few local tea parties used it to raise some money. Now it’s time to reactivate the idea. So October 2011 is approaching.

The Questions That Should Have Been Asked at The Debate
If I were a billionaire, I’d host my own debate for the GOP. Each candidate would get the chance to answer five questions without interruption. After they had each given their answer, I’d allow an attack / rebuttal time of 5/5 minutes each. 1) What is your plan to create full-time jobs in the private sector of this country? 2) Social Security and Medicare are | Read More »

Most of my platform, you’ll agree with but for the more interesting part, scroll to the bottom. o Jim DeMint who said there was no way is now considering it. o Sarah Palin is doing what ever the heck she is doing. o Rick Perry is now re-considering it. o Mike Huckabee said he might | Read More »
