Restoring respect for individual voters and traditional American values.
The Constitution anticipated that informed voters would defend their liberty and maintain a limited federal government. It's time to do it.
Is it time for the Republican party leadership to be allowed to commit suicide?
Party leaders in both parties have accused us of being extremists or terrorists or simply nuts and wackos.
Maybe it is time for conservative voters to employ suicide bomber tactics, and take arrogant RINOs out in the 2014 general election if we can't do so in the primaries. Work for their defeat now, and then seek replacements in 2016, even at the risk of short-term consequences such as an…Continue
Marry Christmas to all our members. I apologize for being out of touch for a few weeks due to system problems. We will plan to meet again early in 2014 as we prepare for the 2014 primary in March.

Representative Roskam's vote today in favor of this spend now, save later plan is a betrayal of the principles for which he purports to stand.

I hope fiscally responsible constituents of the 6th district don't sit silently while this…Continue

Some observers such as former Rep. Joe Walsh apparently don't think that the change in the filibuster rules in the Senate last week are such a big deal, even though it empowers Obama to reshape the federal courts through appointment of the most far left activist judges he can find. In short, Obama now has the unchecked power to appoint judges who will rule on such things as the constitutionality of his Obamacare and other regulations. It also means that he won't have to worry about a…Continue

National Review is publishing a deliberately provocative editorial, "Against Despair". It's long - five pages online - but is best read by starting at the end and then going back to read how they came to that conclusion. Frankly, it doesn't seem to be a very coherent argument, nor offer any effective guidance about the way forward. …Continue
