The Freedomist Expose’ On Great Conservative Causes

    Bill CollierThe American Freedomist It says in Proverbs, “let another man praise you and not yourself”, or something like that. There are many conservative groups and causes out there, some of which you may not even be familiar with. Some of them may be nothing more than a guy or gal in their living room with a $7 server, as Ralph Benko quoted from Patrick | Read More »

    Not to sound all PBS . . .

    But RedState could not do it without readers/users like you. On newsstands Monday is a profile of RedState in Newsweek. You can check it out here complete with a misspelling of my last name in the first line. Heh. After suffering demoralizing losses in the Nov. 4 election, the GOP is searching for new voices to spur a comeback. But the party’s right wing tends | Read More »

    A Proposal to Improve RedState “Stateability”

    As a follow on to Time To Get Local, I wanted to make a proposal to improve the “State” functionality of RedState. I believe my statements that I can’t promote state issues here wasn’t true, if a few improvements could be made. Since the powers that be at RedState seem to be in the mood to improve the site, I’d like to suggest the following:

    Today is my 4th birthday at RedState

    In the middle of 2004, I was told about this new blog called RedState. I was an avid reader of “Daly Thoughts” and Gerry linked here. I didn’t quite get the concept of a group blog back then. I read the front page and that was about it. I started reading the diaries and the comments and then registered on this date 4 years ago, | Read More »


    A few words on the RedState Community

    IF YOU ARE NEW TO REDSTATE, GO DOWN TO THE HIGHLIGHT. IF YOU ARE A PRE-EXISTING USER, READ THIS: Friends, having posted this before, I want to post it again. I want to ask a favor. I want to ask you to remember that RedState is a community. Sometimes, new people move into a community. Lately, we have a lot of new users. In normal | Read More »


    On Diaries and Recommendations

    At RedState, the user community is a big part of why we’re here. Our goal is to bring people together and push the Activist button, so when our most active readers have complaints, we pay attention, because if this site isn’t able to bring together potential activists, we’re not going to accomplish our mission. Some, however, have gotten the impression that because there hasn’t been | Read More »

    It’s been a pleasure to “know” you all

    As I informed Erick, Ben, and Mike several weeks ago, and as I decided myself several months ago, my long stint with RedState will come to an end now that the election cycle has concluded. Like many others after me, I found RedState as a random internet reader, way back in 2004. I was not politically active, but politically interested. Picked out of a crowd | Read More »

    RedState Needs To Change

    This site is a mess. It is laid out poorly and functions like a Model T in sub-zero weather. All the error messages are inexcusable. The “editing” is hit or miss and seems to be more a function of who is awake and feels like doodling with the site than any coherent policy or strategy. But my concern goes well beyond that. Any site whose | Read More »

    Tips for Redstate Writers

    What makes a good diary? I’m hardly John Steinbeck when it comes to writing here on Redstate, but I do a bit of it in my job. A RS diary doesn’t really bear much resemblance to geeky I/T books and papers, but the thought process is somewhat similar. In addition, there are some “dos and don’ts” for RS blogs diaries in particular. Let’s visit some | Read More »

    Is getting undermined, or just real busy?

    I don’t see anything on the front page saying anything about website issues. Is it just me?

    Welcome back, Redstate

    So, was it a denial of service attack because of the anonymous poster that Rush pointed out today? You guys really need to figure out a way to plan for those Rush hat tips.


    Is it just the increase in traffic that’s slowing up Redstate?

    **Feels like someone threw a switch and it can take hours for me to get on the site now. I have High Speed and a hot-rod computer, but it is taking a very long time to navigate through signing on or making responses. Just the volume of traffic?
