The modern conservative movement began as a Remnant with Albert Jay Nock and Frank Chodorov; grew into an intellectual movement with Friedrich Hayek, Richard Weaver, and Russell Kirk; blossomed into a political movement with William F. Buckley Jr. and Barry Goldwater; burst into full bloom as a governing movement with Ronald Reagan and The Heritage Foundation and other organizations; succumbed to hubris with Newt Gingrich and Tom DeLay; imploded under George W. Bush and the neoconservatives; and is now wondering whether it is headed for the ash heap of history.
Let us begin our examination of the state of American conservatism with a little history.
The link above under the subject is a long one a good read, but my comment below holds up red flags:
April 27, 2009
...Barack Obama is the president and he has a right to push his agenda, even though some of us think that gargantuan spending and borrowing and smiling and making nice with despots is just plain wrong.
But he promised an administration that would rise above the old politics of Washington, and thus far, his has been so harshly partisan that one has to long for the old politics, because the new version is stunningly divisive.
According to the polls, I'm in the minority. That's okay. I usually have been. And according to the new and depraved Department of Homeland Security, I need to be on their watch list of people they are really, really afraid of since I'm one of those scary people who believe in God I'm pro-life, a gun owner, concealed carry permit holder, a person who believes that the Second Amendment is as important as the first and that without one, we probably won't have the other very long...
That's my view, I would love to hear yours. E-mail... email@example.com
Wow, what a busy couple of weeks!
Here is the best way I can think of describing the over $9 TRILLION dollar deficit our children and grandchildren will be forced to pay off from President Obama's new spending programs...all his, passed by the Democrats...and yes, in addition to what would be considered President Bush's deficit of some $450 Billion.
President Obama and the Democrats have gotten a hold of the government's credit card, raised the overall limit, maxed it out and have given us the bill to pay. The sad part is that the deficit (credit card spending) is so big, it will take our children and grandchildren to pay off the Obama bill...if they are lucky.
TEA PARTIES ACROSS AMERICA
I joined over 5,000 citizens and taxpayers at the Tea Party are our state Capitol in Lansing on April 15th. Hundred of Tea Parties across this country with estimates that nearly a MILLION citizen activists came out to express their frustration with the growth of government, spiraling deficits and out of control spending by government in general. It wasn't a partisan crowd and many were clearly first timers who just wanted their voices heard. Hopefully Washington and the politicians were listening. Newt Gingrich made a scary point about the $9 TRILLION in new debt President Obama is proposing and what it will cost you.
Check out Newt on this short YouTube video talk about the future of the Tea Party movement.
MICHIGAN STATEWIDES - ENDORSEMENTS
I've receive a bunch of emails and telephone calls asking who I was endorsing for Governor, Secretary of State and Attorney General. I have to admit, I am very excited about the caliber of candidates in the race and I consider all of them friends...so it won't be easy. But at this time, it's still early and I think very healthy that all of us are getting a chance to see how hard they work, what positions they are articulating and therefore giving us time to make a judgement call as to who will be the strongest Republican nominee to go against the Democrats in the fall of 2010...yup, it's still a LONG ways away.
I expect to make an endorsement and give my rationale as to why at some point in the game. But for now, this is great for the party - it helps build momentum and excitement, it's great for the candidates - it develops their skills and grassroots organizations and it's great for our state - because we can openly discuss the challenges of how we move forward. We have been "blown away" and can't afford to keep the tax & spend Democrats in control in Michigan! I think 2010 promises to be a great year for Republican candidates and I look forward to working with you to get every TAXPAYER out to vote!
SAVE AMERICAN JOBS
One of my first "business development" clients is the RAP Index, which provides a unique software tool for businesses and associations to help activate their members and employees to become politically active.
So-called "grassroots" software is focused on generating high volumes of less-and-less effective form letters and blast e-mails that flood policymakers' offices with rubber stamp communications. The RAP Index is different; it is an Intelligence tool that employs sophisticated computer modeling and profiling techniques that reach deep into an organization. It scores and re-scores the relevance or influence of stakeholder relationships with policymakers and within their own community. By enabling direct communication from those stakeholders who are personally known to policymakers, and recognized influencers, The RAP Index breaks through the spam-like clutter of mass mail to get the point across most effectively.
Call me for more information and/or check out the RAP Index website here.

If everyone knew all there is to know, they would not do half the things they do, including myself, therefore I must foregive them, including myself.
The American currency has been inflated tremendously during this current fiscal crisis. As this truth will finally become reality, will it depress the dollar so much that there is a run on it, that all the Nations of the World holding the dollar will try to be the first out of the gate to shed themselves of the deflation that this inflation will cause on their investment holdings?
China, the holder of 30% of the worlds wealth has a different idea. They want to go to a new currency known as the World Reserve currency printed by the International Banking Community. This currency is already in place, since 1931, but has yet to be distributed. The current debate is to administer 250 billion as soon as possible. But with Europe holding 8 of the 20 seats of the G-20, this prospect is in doubt.
The Euro has resisted the need to lower the currency borrowing by the European Reserve, named the World Reserve when the EURO was created. Though their banks are also in dire straights as the rest of the world, their currency is holding fast and as the world pulls out of this foray of fiscal debacle, the EURO will be manifold in strength.
It is a war of a monetary tsunami. The EURO could fail, the U.S. Dollar could collapse, China could lose much of the wealth. Which way will the world turn? Time will tell. As for what I think? Sorry, can't tell you.
- But one fact that makes one wonder is Iceland. They are the first to collapse and they are going to the EURO. Is that the wave that will result?
- Will the U.S. citizen uprising against the totalitarian Federal Government succeed and cause America to isolate from the World's fiscal folly?
- Will Europe be able to sustain the fiscal pressures of the debt on it's shoulders?
- Will China, Russia and those outside of the G-20 succeed in a new world currency?

About a week and a half ago we put up a poll to see how many folks would cast a vote saying they find the CNN attack on the Tea Party Movement offensive.
We ended up with just under 5,000 votes with almost 100% feeling the CNN attack was offensive. 5,000 votes may not mean much to some, but we consider it a fairly strong statement. So strong, in fact, we've decided to respond with a full scale internet campaign to help us start building a coalition that opposes CNN and those who enable them to spew their hate.
CNNOffensive.com is in place to accomplish several goals.
1) Demand a Public Apology
2) No More Taxpayer Funded Soapbox
3) Contact CNN Sponsors
The companies who choose to sponsor CNN, in our opinion, choose to support the offensive message CNN publishes. There for, we will choose to support their competitors wherever possible.
