I believe that government is the enemy of freedom and that under the recent Republican leadershp, the Party lost its role as the enemy of Big Government and despotism. I want the RLC to become the conscience of the nation and the Party.
I want to work for freedom. We have traded freedom for safety and security and as Benjamin Franklin warned, we deserve and have wound up with neither.
With the presidency of Barack Obama and Democratic dominance by the most leftist members of the Senate and House, this country is in a lot of danger and may not survive. There could not be a group more committed to socialism. The Democrats had to go some to find a more leftist presidential nominee than Al Gore in 2000 yet they found one in 2004 with John Kerry. They had to go some to find one more leftist than Kerry yet they did in Barack Obama in 2008. The time for compromise with the forces of relentless egalitarian evil and governmental aggression against freedom is long since past. We are the conscience of the Republican Party and will hold its feet to the fires in the souls of freedom lovers. Anything short of complete reestablishment of constitutionally limited government will just allow it to begin again. If you want to work for freedom, the RLC is the place for you.
