Redstate Gathering Video – A tribute

    This is a short film I put together as a tribute to the Redstate Gathering. We truly had an amazing time. Thank you to everyone who made it happen. The Redstate Gathering from David Thompson on Vimeo.

    Redstate Gathering Video – Moe Lane

    Moe did take a break from banning trolls to give us some advice about online activism. Keep your eyes on the goal, and ignore the distractions thrown at your by the left. Moe Lane from David Thompson on Vimeo.

    Redstate Gathering Video – Caleb Howe

    Here is a fun little video of Caleb’s “opening” remarks. Not particularly political, but pretty funny. Caleb Howe from David Thompson on Vimeo.

    Redstate Gathering Video – John Randall, NRCC

    John Randall gave us a short talk about the NRCC recruitment efforts for 2010. Even though it was short, it was very informative, and gave us a good bit of confidence for success in 2010. John Randall from David Thompson on Vimeo.

    Redstate Gathering Video – Nikki Haley

    All I can say about Nikki Haley is WOW. The story of her rise in politics, and her willingness to take on the Republican establishment in South Carolina is compelling. She capped off the presentations in Atlanta, like the cherry on top of the cake. She is running for Governor of South Carolina next year. Regardless of the success of her campaign, she is clearly | Read More »

    Redstate Gathering Video – Ted Cruz

    Ted Cruz was the Solicitor General for Texas, and is running for Attorney General. He gave a terrific speech, telling us the story of defending Texas’ 10th amendment rights against international courts and the Justice Department. A very engaging speaker, he had us spellbound throughout. His story of his father escaping Cuba is amazing to hear. Ted Cruz from David Thompson on Vimeo.

    RedState Gathering – Ted Cruz.

    This interview is from last week’s RedState gathering. Ted Cruz is the guy running for Texas Attorney General – and as you can see, he’s pretty serious about this race. He’s also pretty serious about using the new social media to get his message out: I think that I have maybe one more of these interviews left: as always, you should check out Dave_in_Fla’s blog | Read More »

    Redstate Gathering Video – Ken Cuccinelli

    Ken Cuccinelli is a Virginia State Senator running for Attorney General this year. He gave an excellent address about his campaign and the state of politics in Virginia. He is unapologetic about running on conservative first principles, and brings a breath of fresh air in his willingness to fight for his beliefs. I think you will enjoy this as much as we did in Atlanta. | Read More »

    Redstate Gathering Video – Marco Rubio

    Many people in the establishment believe the Marco Rubio’s campaign is doomed, and that the best thing he can do for the party is to get out of the way and let Charlie Crist, the next person in line, to take the Senate seat from Florida. Those people are wrong. Campaigns like Marco’s are vital to improving our legislators in Washington. They force establishment candidates, | Read More »

    Redstate Gathering Video – Lawrence Spivak, FreeMarketWarrior.com

    The story of Lawrence Spivak has been all over the news recently. He is a small businessman selling conservative and anti-Obama merchandise in a mall in North Carolina. When another mall employee complained that he was selling items critical of Obama, his lease was terminated. This story has turned out to be a tremendous metaphor for the current struggle against Statism. I personally watched Lawrence | Read More »

    Welcome To The Neighborhood

    Traditionally, a neighborhood was a community of like minded people.  Several decades ago most of us grew up in neighborhoods/communities that shared common interests and common goals.  We were culturally connected.  The Amish are a good example of people being members of a community, though they don’t live close-by.  Yet, they can gather together to raise a barn. Recent societal changes due to affluence, increased | Read More »

    Redstate Gathering Video – Liz Cheney

    The highlight of the Redstate Gathering was Liz Cheney’s address to us, discussing world events and the involvement of the Obama administration in them.  She was a very engaging speaker, and the crowd enjoyed it immensely.  Afterward, she was very gracious with her time, posing for pictures with the attendees.
