“…We must immediately expand our vision beyond standard educational institutions. In our cultures of today – and of tomorrow – parents, peers, and media play roles at least as significant as do authorized teachers and formal schools…if any cliché of recent years ring true, it is the acknowledgment that learning must be lifelong.”

Respectable Republicans Running for Office in CT, KY, SC, NM

Perhaps you thought the Republican Party was dead. Maybe you think the Ron Paul Revolution is over. Nope, not over. Not dead. There is hope for the Republican Party, but is does not lie with the assholes that bow to Rush Limbaugh. They have to go, and we are going to replace them. There are some ethical and intelligent Republicans coming into their own. We need some reasonable voices to balance the resurgent liberal wave that is sweeping congress with the dominance of the Democratic Party. Someone needs to speak for basic conservative principles---instead of the incumbent Republicans' strategy of ludricrous and pointless obstructionism.

What surprised Ron Paul on his recent presidential run was how many citizens were listening, donating, and endorsing his ideas on how to run a nation. The support for the Revolution was substantial enough to begin the process of organizing a new political force. In this fertile ground several younger and better-looking candidates (no insult intended) have begun to campaign on Constitutional government and financial responsibility. Two are doctors, two are military men, and one is an economist. Seems like it would benefit us to elect them all.
