The Best Definition of Conservatives Yet
Many on the right – and even some on the left – have decried the lack of a strong leader for the conservative party in America (note I didn’t say the Republican party). Michael Steele, the recent elected chairman of the RNC, has been under attack lately. Some are upset that he is trying to be too “moderate”, while others are wondering why, if he | Read More »
Forget Socialism – Say Hello to Communism
There has been much talk in the media – especially the new media, about Obama and his administration leading us down the road to socialism. I say forget socialism – we are already at communism.

Tomorrow is the vote… Still time to contact our Senators
So, I understand that tomorrow our senators get together for a final vote on the mis-named “stimulus” bill. Obama and the Democrats have been on the attack – implying it’s not “patriotic” to vote against the stimulus.

Can’t Reach the RINOS by Phone?
This is my first Diary, and I’m rather uncertain of the formatting, but I felt it was important information. So please forgive me if it looks yucky. A number of Red State members have been frustrated by not being able to get through to Senators Collins, Snowe, Specter, and Voinovich by telephone.
