Moving forward

I took a few days off to lick my wounds after this election.  I have done a lot of soul searching and have come to the conclusion that it is time to rethink my/our priorities.  There is 4 years until the Obama reign is history and just 2 short years until the next mid term elections. 

The fact is the GOP and the Republicans have sold out long ago and in the process have sold us conservatives out with it.  We know that being moderate is not in our interest.  We know that there is no difference between the D and R. 

It is time to either get behind a viable 3rd party or remake the Republicans in the image that they should be and have been long ago.

I am thinking about creating a "think tank" like website blog whereas a chosen few can find the answers to the biggest question of all -- how.  Then to write these well thought out idea's into answers and find a grass root hold to take action.

I know there are quite a few gifted, talented people that come to this site and wish to hear from you.  I am looking for some that are committed to this endeavor/format to truly try to make a bigger difference to this lofty goal.

I want to hear from you, your ideas and your passion......


  1. Rosey, I honestly don't see how at this point. The best idea coming from the repubs is gain favor with the folks that put obama over the top again.

    These groups have no interest in conservatism, so to gain favor with them would be to pander to their desires and philosophies and abandon conservatism. It's a paradox.

    Not for me.

    I'm afraid these people are going to have the Experience the error of their ways before the 16 trillion ton freighter can be turned around. By then it will probably be 30 trillion tons...

  2. I missed reading your blog while you took time off, but I understand why you did.

    You're preaching to the choir with this post; although I may not share the apocalyptic prognosis of the Obama reelection that many do, I do believe the foundational problem is the entrenched political duopoly inside the beltway...with the media enabling it every step of the way.

    I also applaud the goal to seek answers outside of that duopoly. Though I'm a card carrying Libertarian, I acknowledge that the LP won't appeal to everyone looking for a third way.....but it might be a part of a good starting point.

    I have the philosophical will to fight the system, but am burdened with a cynical assessment of ordinary people having the ability to make the sort of changes necessary to preserve the Republic. Even the tea party allowed itself [or was powerless to stop it] to be co-opted by establishment organizations and money.
