The Organizational Structure of the Republican Party

“Our government rests in public opinion. Whoever can change public opinion, can change the government, practically just so much.” -- ABRAHAM LINCOLN

As much as any President in our great nation’s history, President Lincoln understood the power of the individual within a free country. Today, as we Republicans look to recharge and, in part, rebuild our party, we must heed Lincoln’s words. Local control is a key ingredient of the GOP platform, and as such the rejuvenation of the Republican Party must begin on the local level, spreading statewide, before once again taking hold nationally.

To achieve this, individuals need a mechanism to come together and to work together. We need a structure. Be assured, a viable and growing structure for Republicans exists right here in Los Angeles.

Breaking the party down from national to local levels, we focus on four organizations:

  • REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE (aka RNC; WWW.RNC.ORG) This is the national arm of the GOP, charged with developing and adopting the party platform, overseeing the national convention and fundraising, among other duties.
  • CALIFORNIA REPUBLICAN PARTY (AKA CRP; WWW.CAGOP.ORG) The CRP is one of 50 subsidiaries of the RNC. The CRP is charged with many of the same duties as the RNC, but on a state-wide level.
  • REPUBLICAN PARTY OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY (aka RPLAC; WWW.LAGOP.ORG) Each state is divided into counties, and each county has its own local County Republican Party. California has 58 counties, the largest of which (both by square mileage and population) is Los Angeles County. As stated on its website, RPLAC’s main objectives are to: “increase voter registration, identify and support appealing candidates for office [and] to increase voter turnout at the polls” for Republicans within Los Angeles County.
  • THE 47th ASSEMBLY DISTRICT CENTRAL COMMITTEE (aka 47th AD; 47THDISTRICT.COM) Within L.A. County there are 26 Assembly Districts, each with a Republican Central Committee assigned to the district. These are comprised of 10 members, each serving two-year terms. Republicans in each District elect seven of these members. The other three are called “ex-officio” members, Republicans who the Party’s nomination for State Assembly, State Senator, and U.S. Congressional Representative for the corresponding district. I am proudly serving my first term on the 47th A.D. Central Committee, acting as Vice-Chair under our Chairman Jeffers Dodge.

Like the national government, the California State government is basically divided into three branches of government: the executive branch, headed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger; the legislative branch, which includes the State Assembly, with 80 members representing 80 districts, and the State Senate, comprised of 40 Senators representing 40 Senate Districts; and lastly the judicial branch, overseen by the State Supreme Court. For example, Jeffers Dodge lives in the state of California, the city of Culver City, putting him in the 26th Senatorial District and the 47th Assembly District in the County of Los Angeles. In regards to national elections, he also lives in the 33rd Congressional District.

Putting all of that together, California is divided into 58 Counties, 40 State Senatorial Districts, 80 Assembly Districts and 52 Congressional Districts (with our two national Senators both elected state-wide). Each district is an area that represents a certain number of citizens.

Without question Los Angeles County is not an easy place to be a Republican, much less to win public office, when looking purely at voter registration statistics. Yet, many in our city – Republicans, Democrats and Independents – reject increasing our already high taxes. Many oppose outrageous and unnecessary government spending. Many parents are tired of failing public schools bogged down by mandates from Sacramento. Many stand strong for law and order. Many stand for individual liberties, bolstered by personal responsibility. All these are key tenets of our party’s platform.

As part of the current state budget crisis, Democratic leaders of the State Assembly and State Senate (charged with creating state laws and spending bills) were looking for ways to increase revenue. Most of us know this is code for increasing taxes. However, California’s by-laws state that all tax increases must be passed by a two-thirds vote, the same number of votes needed to pass a state budget. Currently, Republicans hold more than a third of those votes, but not by much. It is Republican State Assembly members’ and Senators’ goals to cut wasteful state spending and ease unnecessary restrictions that have driven businesses out of California. It is vital that we do not lose these seats, and rather increase our statewide numbers. This is where the work of the Local Central Committees becomes pivotal.

Many of you out there may have never heard of Central Committees. You may have never met a member of your district’s Committee. That must change, and we in the 47th C.C. pledge to make that change. We cannot increase voter turnout without increasing voter contact. We cannot support candidates before supporting constituents. It is our goal to be more active throughout our community, providing Republicans, Independents, Libertarians, like-minded Democrats, and all who believe in our principles and values with the foundation and structure to get things done.

2008 was a difficult year for the Republican Party – nationally and locally. The time to complain and cower is over. The time to work has come. The structure is in place, and now all we need is each other.

LARA – Congratulates President-elect Obama. Now I have a few questions…
Jeffers M. Dodge

Before I start I would like to reflect on what an historical moment November 4th was… one that will live forever. The first American President from African descent fired the imagination and inspiration of millions all over the world.

Our country is now in his hands to either govern in the center by using free market capitalism and continue this great experiment in Republican Government or try and prove Marx and Engle right and in doing so, like all other experiments in socialism before him, destroy the best economic system free men have ever developed?

Will our enemies such as the Islamic fundamentalist and the extreme Nationalist and Marxist Revolutionaries lay down their arms and join our cause… or will they challenge Barack Hussein Obama to submit to Allah. Obama and his cronies are Islamic Socialists until proven otherwise. How can I accuse him of this? Barrack Hussein Obama admits it when he uttered the words “Spread the Wealth.”

Another question to ask about the chosen one: Do we give him a chance to succeed or do we stick it to him right out of the Box?

Personally, I think we wait until his second day in office… then we ask him the following questions;

Was his election a mandate on banning off shore drilling?
Was his election a mandate on bankrupting the coal industry?
Was his election a mandate on sharing my wealth?
In these times of economic stress who should suffer; the government, in the form of spending cuts, or the people by raising taxes?

In addition I would like a discussion about the institutions and values that propelled him to victory, i.e., the media, economy, freedom of choice and equality.

1. Do you think he would have won the election if it were not for the complete capitulation of the media? (other than Fox News) In other words did the Main Stream Media lose their Left Wing ideological credibility by not giving both sides the same objective leg tingling coverage? Or did the MSM become cheerleaders to a person that can finally win a landslide victory against the mighty Republican political machine?
2. Do you think Barack Obama would have won the election if it were not for the burst of the real-estate bubble? (What Political Parties economic principles were primarily responsible for the collapse?)
3. Do you think that when the economy is doing great under a Republican Administration the MSM does its best to talk it down -- to try and diminish it to give a leg-up for their anti-freemarket socialist ideology? For instance according to the MSM we have been in a recession for two years, where in fact, technically we are not in a recession and we have just had the greatest period of wealth creation in the history of the planet. Our GDP grew from $9 trillion at the end of the year 2000 to $14 trillion by the end of 2008. All thanks to George W. Bush and his super bad cronies.

Equality and Choice are big Left Wing values always swaying in the righteous wind.
Government cannot force equalization of talent, feelings, education and therefore wealth. By doing so makes the poor lazy and the successful disinclined. So what inspires innovation under a socialist system? The simple answer is idealism. This is the energy of youth and is shaped and focused by educational institutions. Graduates from Left Wing Indoctrination Universities come out ready to make a killing and are picked up and exploited by big business. This idealism is a great motivator until competition kicks in and the only reward you get for your brilliance is the expectation of brilliance and disappointment for anything less and to watch those younger and prettier get the only meaningful compensation that you once had; attention from their elder elitist party member bosses with their corner offices and apartments.

In a Free-Market system the cream of the crop rises to the top and continues the success of the business -- expanding markets, creating jobs and producing the ultimate American value; success. In a socialist system competition and choice is denied and oppressed which stymies innovation and expansion. This is the legacy of misdirected and dishonorable greed disguised as altruism. Achieving great personal success for yourself first then your family and your community is the greatest form of altruism. Charity starts at home!

It is time for Republicans to be reflective and to clean house.

The ex RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman recognized this after the 2006 debacle and stepped down. Yet the status quo was somehow maintained. This would have never happened in a corporate structure. There is no democracy in a Political Party structure; it is and should be structured like a business but when failure occurs as in the case of 2006 and 2008 either the Party should dissolve itself or management should be fired.

That means those that failed in 2006 and did not step aside, dishonored the Republican Party and the values and principles it stands on.

I personally witnessed the idealized youth taking key roles in the RNC making choice not for the cause but primarily for their resumes. For instance regional headquarter leaders choosing not to promote phone banking at home because the headquarters where they lead are competing with each other to see how many phone calls come from their staff. In other words it was their personal objectives not what was best for the cause. They never realized the pent up energy of all the Republicans that wanted so desperately to help win this election but were confined to schedules and responsibilities of work, faith and families.

But it is also important to understand that everything happens in generational cycles. Our economy, our culture and our psychology. Blatant critique and/or statements of facts can be like a sward cutting through the thick fabric of denial. To the child it can sound punishing, to an adult it can sound condescending and to a teacher it is downright emasculating… but sometimes it needs to be stated not diplomatically but directly.

In the end, it will be the owners and editors of the MSM that will pick our leaders, shape our opinion and rule the world.

Was this election a mandate on banning off shore drilling?
Was this election a mandate on bankrupting the coal industry?
Was this election a mandate on shearing my wealth?
In the times of economic stress who should suffer the government in the form of cutting spending or the people by raising taxes.

I would be remiss if I did not mention the complete and utter incompetence of the RNC leadership starting with the kowtowing and capitulation to the Main Stream Media (MSM). A case in point; who at the RNC allowed CNN and YouTube staffers to choose the questions for the Republican Primary Debates. That is like letting your opponent call your plays in a football game. It was a debate among Republican candidates discussing issues that matter to Republicans, not a bunch of Marxist yahoos sitting around a desk picking questions that made a mockery out o the Republican Party… Unbelievable.

Illegal Immigration

Why does it seem that our government is doing everything it can to keep our southern border open? Or to put it another way, doing very little to aggressively secure our borders? To me it is beyond logic.

Maybe to understand this we need to understand more about modern American politics.

Many politicians, whose campaigns live or die on financial contributions made by special interest are not altruistic, they scratch your back as long as you scratch theirs. I should know. When I carried the flag for the Republicans in 2006 for the 47th Assembly District, I was told with no uncertain terms that I would vote whichever way they told me to vote or they would fund my democratic opponent’s campaign. Boy did that open my eyes.

When I was introduced to the long line of lobbyist and special interest groups they all had the same question: What are my three main issues? And knowing exactly what each of them (restaurant, Indian casinos, agriculture and banking to name a few) wanted to hear I instead told them what my constituents wanted me to tell them; illegal immigration, the economy and education, in that order. I told them that these three issues could be greatly improved by one over arching solution. SECURING THE BORDER.

Chris Simcox, a co-founder of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, has emerged as one of the preeminent spokespersons against illegal immigration. Put aside the negative consequences to our economy, it is the human toll that drives this man. Drug lords are smuggling their product over the border on the backs of foreign nationals. Women and children are being trafficked across the border as sex slaves. Humans are stuffed into vans and driven for days without stopping for water or bathroom breaks in the heat of summer… many don’t make it. Lax border security and local laws, like SpecialOrder40, attract the Mexican Mafia that fill Los Angeles streets with violent gang members that outnumber our police force ten to one. What is it about our politicians that make them behave they way they do? Is it money or are they just worried about their own parcel of power? I think its both.

Chris Simcox knows first hand, for the last four years he has witnessed all of this in his home state of Arizona. He is a patriot and is willing to sacrifice himself for our country to do what is right. We all have got to realize that this is a non-partisan failure with politicians on both sides of the aisle to blame, (although the left has more at stake supporting an open border policy).

The only way to make this problem go away is to secure the border, reform our antiquated immigration policies and enforce the laws. Democrats want “cheap” votes and more dependents on the doll and big business want “cheap” labor to improve their profit margins. But “cheap” isn’t cheap it costs the American taxpayer dearly, it raise the cost of all insurance especially healthcare, it clutters up our justice system and it adds a ton of cars on our freeways adding to the CO2 output and frustration to bonafide citizens. Couple all this with the human toll and what do you get? Either an inefficient, confused or corrupt government. Chris Simcox has been the on the vanguard in the fight to preserve the sanctity of the land which the U.S. Constitution has jurisdiction.

That is why we need to support his program, which has had hundreds of volunteers on border watch for 289 consecutive days. They have spotted 30,962 Illegal aliens breaking our laws, they have rescued 329 illegal aliens that were in some sort of distress, and they have been responsible for 13,769 intruder apprehensions from 26 countries confirmed by Border Patrol.

If you can’t make it to the meeting then please click here to find out how you can help Chris keep up the pressure on our politicians to do the RIGHT THING.

So let us grab this opportunity and start pushing our American values of God, Country, Family, Free Markets, and a strong Military through the media and onto the desks of our politicians. This is what they are waiting for – every great idea has come from the people not the politicians -- we are what makes our country great not government.

Join us the Wednesday evening to discus Illegal Immigration with Chris Simcox.

Racism And What We Can Do About It

What are post-racial principles?
Talking Points for Republicans…

Well let’s look at some facts and then when you come to the meeting we can discuss you’re your views on this matter. If you can’t make it to the conference send me an email with your thoughts.

The Republican Party was founded by abolitions (the Republicans) who fought the Southerners (the Democrats) for freedom and liberty for everybody. Why aren’t we answering back in the strongest terms possible when Black Leaders talk about segregation?

Martin Luther King’s famous line about not judging people by their color and gender but by their character ability and talent is pure conservative thought. Why don’t we make it a permanent part of our Platform?

The Republican Party has been post-racial since winning the Civil War – Why have we allowed the Democrats to divide America into groups?

In terms of African American community relations; the following excerpts are from an article written by Pat Buchanan (March 21, 2008) and following that is David Horowitz’s (January 03, 2001) article, “Ten Reasons Why Reparations for Blacks is a Bad Idea for Blacks - and Racist Too.”

America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known. (It could have been 180 million if it wasn’t for Roe vs Wade)

Second, no government anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the '60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream.

Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks -- with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas -- to advance black applicants over white applicants.

Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.

Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America?

Is it really white America's fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent?

Is it really white America's fault the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?

Is it really white America's fault that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?

Is it really white America's fault that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse or that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?

Ten Reasons Why Reparations for Blacks is a Bad Idea for Blacks
and Racist Too
By David Horowitz


There Is No Single Group Clearly Responsible For The Crime Of Slavery

Black Africans and Arabs were responsible for enslaving the ancestors of African-Americans. There were 3,000 black slave-owners in the ante-bellum United States. Are reparations to be paid by their descendants too?


There Is No One Group That Benefited Exclusively From Its Fruits

The claim for reparations is premised on the false assumption that only whites have benefited from slavery. If slave labor created wealth for Americans, then obviously it has created wealth for black Americans as well, including the descendants of slaves. The GNP of black America is so large that it makes the African-American community the 10th most prosperous "nation" in the world. American blacks on average enjoy per capita incomes in the range of twenty to fifty times that of blacks living in any of the African nations from which they were kidnapped.


Only A Tiny Minority Of White Americans Ever Owned Slaves, And Others Gave Their Lives To Free Them

Only a tiny minority of Americans ever owned slaves. This is true even for those who lived in the ante-bellum South where only one white in five was a slaveholder. Why should their descendants owe a debt? What about the descendants of the 350,000 Union soldiers who died to free the slaves? They gave their lives. What possible moral principle would ask them to pay (through their descendants) again?


America Today Is A Multi-Ethnic Nation and Most Americans Have No Connection (Direct Or Indirect) To Slavery

The two great waves of American immigration occurred after 1880 and then after 1960. What rationale would require Vietnamese boat people, Russian refuseniks, Iranian refugees, and Armenian victims of the Turkish persecution, Jews, Mexicans, Greeks, or Polish, Hungarian, Cambodian and Korean victims of Communism, to pay reparations to American blacks?


The Historical Precedents Used To Justify The Reparations Claim Do Not Apply, And The Claim Itself Is Based On Race Not Injury

The historical precedents generally invoked to justify the reparations claim are payments to Jewish survivors of the Holocaust, Japanese-Americans and African- American victims of racial experiments in Tuskegee, or racial outrages in Rosewood and Oklahoma City. But in each case, the recipients of reparations were the direct victims of the injustice or their immediate families. This would be the only case of reparations to people who were not immediately affected and whose sole qualification to receive reparations would be racial. As has already been pointed out, during the slavery era, many blacks were free men or slave-owners themselves, yet the reparations claimants make no distinction between the roles blacks actually played in the injustice itself. Randall Robinson's book on reparations, The Debt, which is the manifesto of the reparations movement is pointedly sub-titled "What America Owes To Blacks." If this is not racism, what is?


The Reparations Argument Is Based On The Unfounded Claim That All African-American Descendants of Slaves Suffer From The Economic Consequences Of Slavery And Discrimination

No evidence-based attempt has been made to prove that living individuals have been adversely affected by a slave system that was ended over 150 years ago. But there is plenty of evidence the hardships that occurred were hardships that individuals could and did overcome. The black middle-class in America is a prosperous community that is now larger in absolute terms than the black underclass. Does its existence not suggest that economic adversity is the result of failures of individual character rather than the lingering after-effects of racial discrimination and a slave system that ceased to exist well over a century ago? West Indian blacks in America are also descended from slaves but their average incomes are equivalent to the average incomes of whites ( and nearly 25% higher than the average incomes of American born blacks). How is it that slavery adversely affected one large group of descendants but not the other? How can government be expected to decide an issue that is so subjective - and yet so critical - to the case?


The Reparations Claim Is One More Attempt To Turn African-Americans Into Victims. It Sends A Damaging Message To The African-American Community.

The renewed sense of grievance -- which is what the claim for reparations will inevitably create -- is neither a constructive nor a helpful message for black leaders to be sending to their communities and to others. To focus the social passions of African-Americans on what some Americans may have done to their ancestors fifty or a hundred and fifty years ago is to burden them with a crippling sense of victim-hood. How are the millions of refugees from tyranny and genocide who are now living in America going to receive these claims, moreover, except as demands for special treatment, an extravagant new handout that is only necessary because some blacks can't seem to locate the ladder of opportunity within reach of others -- many less privileged than themselves?


Reparations To African Americans Have Already Been Paid

Since the passage of the Civil Rights Acts and the advent of the Great Society in 1965, trillions of dollars in transfer payments have been made to African-Americans in the form of welfare benefits and racial preferences (in contracts, job placements and educational admissions) - all under the rationale of redressing historic racial grievances. It is said that reparations are necessary to achieve a healing between African-Americans and other Americans. If trillion dollar restitutions and a wholesale rewriting of American law (in order to accommodate racial preferences) for African-Americans is not enough to achieve a "healing," what will?


What About The Debt Blacks Owe To America?

Slavery existed for thousands of years before the Atlantic slave trade was born, and in all societies. But in the thousand years of its existence, there never was an anti-slavery movement until white Christians - Englishmen and Americans -- created one. If not for the anti-slavery attitudes and military power of white Englishmen and Americans, the slave trade would not have been brought to an end. If not for the sacrifices of white soldiers and a white American president who gave his life to sign the Emancipation Proclamation, blacks in America would still be slaves. If not for the dedication of Americans of all ethnicities and colors to a society based on the principle that all men are created equal, blacks in America would not enjoy the highest standard of living of blacks anywhere in the world, and indeed one of the highest standards of living of any people in the world. They would not enjoy the greatest freedoms and the most thoroughly protected individual rights anywhere. Where is the gratitude of black America and its leaders for those gifts?


The Reparations Claim Is A Separatist Idea That Sets African-Americans Against The Nation That Gave Them Freedom

Blacks were here before the Mayflower. Who is more American than the descendants of African slaves? For the African-American community to isolate itself even further from America is to embark on a course whose implications are troubling. Yet the African-American community has had a long-running flirtation with separatists, nationalists and the political left, who want African-Americans to be no part of America's social contract. African Americans should reject this temptation.

For all America's faults, African-Americans have an enormous stake in their country and its heritage. It is this heritage that is really under attack by the reparations movement. The reparations claim is one more assault on America, conducted by racial separatists and the political left. It is an attack not only on white Americans, but on all Americans -- especially African-Americans.

America's African-American citizens are the richest and most privileged black people alive -- a bounty that is a direct result of the heritage that is under assault. The American idea needs the support of its African-American citizens. But African-Americans also need the support of the American idea. For it is this idea that led to the principles and institutions that have set African-Americans - and all of us -- free.

I think when Martin Luther King stated that the US wrote Blacks a check marked insufficient funds now we can consider it paid in full with interest.

Socialism cannot Survive Without the Poor and Uneducated
By Jeffers M. Dodge May 18, 2008

Socialism cannot survive without the poor and uneducated. That is why many Conservatives are advocating for an Institutional Reform Surge that will modernize the US Government’s mandated entitlement programs such as Social Security, Medicare and Disability. They believe that nothing short of a complete transformation to personal accounts, utilizing economic efficiencies created from over 200 years of fine-tuning of our capitalistic free market system will save the American government from a free fall into the abyss of the historically destructive economic principals of socialism.

Some of the most successful of these Conservative Advocates are William Kristol of the Weekly Standard, Dick Army’s FreedomWorks, the Cato Institute, the Heritage Foundation, and the truly interactive, Newt Gingrich’s American Solutions. The David Horowitz Freedom Center is another Conservative Advocates here in Los Angeles that is attacking the problem of the Left in acedemic, media and entertainment terms..

The proposed annual shift of $1.3 trillion out of the public sector into the private sector will first and foremost create wealth for the working poor and middle class by establishing personal “Lock Box” accounts that will eliminate the need for other savings plan such as 401ks, IRAs etc. It will reduce the size of government and increase tax revenues to local, state and federal treasuries. Most Americans no longer support the current inefficient Social Security system that is a self-sustaining monster destined to take over the entire government bureaucracy -- draining billions out of the US economy both in terms of productivity and happiness.

Most Americans want their mandatory Social Security contributions to be personalized – some don’t. Who are these "anti-personalization" advocates? I call them the Socialist Coalition. They are the groups and organizations that spent almost a billion dollars to defeat of George W. Bush’s attempt to deliver social security privatization to the American public. They are a mix of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, private enterprises, private citizens, and left wing think tanks all over the country. They all have one goal in common; Socialism, an economic system of expropriation where the state, controlled by a handful of leftist elitists, takes ownership control over the means of production.

The programs fueled by Socialistic economic principles (taxpayers money) in America were designed by their proponents to unfairly compete with private businesses. Programs such as Public Schools vs Private Schools, Social Security vs Private Retirement, and now on the horizon an expansion of universal healthcare have all failed in terms of sustainability, quality, accessibility and affordability. These programs would never succeed in the real world without the taxpayer bailouts.

I ascribe this concession to Socialism to the ALLEGED collapse of capitalism in the 1930’s as seen through the prism of the left wing media. If truth be told, Roosevelt's New Deal policies, including Social Security, never gave permanent relief to the needy, or reform to the financial system, and our economy only recovered after Hitler took advantage of the fact we were in a depression. Only when we had to gear for war did our economy recover. (Just as a side note; Roosevelt's delay cost the lives of millions of Europeans and years of misery in America.) Another example of this distortion of historical perception is the McCarthy era, as rewritten of course by the left wing media, entertainment business and academia.

Nevertheless, in both cases, socialism got a foothold in the United States economy and muted our economic growth thereby exacerbating bad education, poverty, crime, drug use and gang violence. These measures of misery are the fuel for socialism, without it they die -- success for them is a paradox.

One more thing, the polarization we are experiencing in the United States between the left and the right is reflective of Americas resistance to the victimization and entitlement mindset created by the equality tenets attributed to socialism, “You are poor because of the rich therefore you deserve it for free.” This weakness is emboldening our enemies specifically the Islamic Brotherhood, students of Nazism and suppliers to our oil addicted economy. This broad network of Islamic Radicals coupled with high technology, have the potential of being far more destructive than Hitler ever was.

I am encouraging each and every one of you to participate in one of the Conservative Advocacies organizations above. Ask question, submit your policy ideas and make comments. What we need is an Institutional Reform Surge that can only happen when our leaders hear from we the people.
