Of all of the websites I contribute to, this has always and will always be my favorite. It’s the second website I ever personally owned and it represents more of my direct feelings. Yes, there have been a few guest contributors, but for the most part it has been all my writing lately. It’s the way it should be.
2017 is going to mark several “beginnings” for conservatives. Establishment Republicans will try to push their reset button after trouncing conservatives and getting partially trounced by Democrats. Conservative Republicans will begin to rebuild their momentum after hitting the Establishment roadblock that halted many Tea Party candidates and their agendas. Libertarians will try to rebuild after failing miserably in the year that gave them the best shot of hitting the debate floor and making an impact in national elections. Smaller conservative parties like the Constitution Party will begin their rebranding after failing to be a blip on the radar again.
There is a bitter tone in Washington DC. It started off as a brief but loud shout in 2010, then quickly quieted to a steady murmur for the following four years. The source goes by a few names including the Tea Party, right-wing rebels, and even the brat pack. In the House of Representatives, they’re called the Freedom Caucus and they represent everything that the Republican Party and the United States of America needs to embrace if we’re going to pull out of the death spiral that the last three Presidents have put us in.
