Organizing for the 2016 general election

Would you like to support the Trump campaign in Illinois?

How about the most competitive General Assembly races so that Gov. Rauner can have more support for his reform agenda over the next two years?

There is a lot of work to do this summer and fall for those who choose to make a difference in Springfield and DC rather than just watch and complain or not even vote.  If you want to join the local fight to restore founding principles and limited government, please join us and attend our next meeting.

As primary season ends, now what?

Whether you like or trust Trump or not, he won the Illinois primary and the Republican nomination.

Libertarian Gary Johnson will achieve nothing, as will any other third party candidate.

Hillary Clinton is a horrible alternative.  She may yet be indicted and replaced as the Democratic candidate.  If convicted, she would be disqualified from any federal office, not just President.

Hillary has just barely defeated Bernie Sanders in the Illinois primary and nationally. …

Conservative principles, and picking our battles

The scope of change necessary to restore America to founding Constitutional principles is daunting, if not overwhelming.  To many, it seems hopeless.  It is hard to even know where to start.  The fight seems likely to last for many years, if not decades.  We have been on the wrong path for roughly a century as "progressives" steadily undermined so many of our basic principles and values, either slowly or recklessly as in the Obama years..

As a recent article in Hillsdale College's…

We have been conducting this online poll since the November election to identify early preferences among voters who self-identify as seeking another Reagan as the Republican nominee in 2016.

SUMMARY: FROM 2009 - 2014

The Rise and Impact of the Decentralized Tea Party Movement

In 2009, the Tea Party movement grew explosively as Americans reacted angrily to the exponential and unsustainable growth of government, including wasteful "stimulus" spending and the takeover of the healthcare industry.  People who had never been involved in politics before suddenly chose to "stand athwart…

American Voters Declare Independence, Again

Thank God for t he principled leadership and vision of the American Foundeers, whose brilliant Constitution made it possible for voters to rein in and change their government without having to fight another Revolution against it.

As the actual facts about the 2014 election start to emerge, one thing is already clear.  American voters were not inclined to simply do as they were told by liberal media talking heads, politicians, party leaders, pollsters, and political consultants or…
