Our Purpose: To show others that conservative ideas, like the free market, works every time it's tried
For far too long conservatives have been the quiet producers in the economy and politics. Yet after years to being labeled and maligned by Liberals and the press, we must no longer rely on the fact that conservatism, like the free market, works every time its tried. We must become active in our local world – not with the goal of demonizing or destroying Liberals, but instead to discuss the issues, to educate them on the truth and historical success of conservatism.
As Ronald Reagan once said, “”…the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so.” It’s time we gently and assertively start to discuss the topics, not allowing ourselves to be shamed into silence by lies or labels. Conservatism works, and our Liberal friends need to know it.
Some will blindly refuse to change. But if you can influence even one person in your local world, it’s one more vote for economic sanity, liberty and prosperity for all.
We hope this site will not only inform, but inspire and educate you on why conservatism works and why those that don’t know the truth about it need to be informed… one person at a time.
Together we can change the minds of those in the Republican/Conservative community that gays shouldn’t be feared – but appreciated and sought after. And most importantly, we can change the minds of friends and family in the GLBT community the benefits and the successes of conservatism for all people.
Do we support some candidates that are apposed to GLBT issues? Yes. Just like our Liberal friends, if a conservative candidate has a conservative economic stance that will help you and I maintain our liberty and prosper economically, then it’s wise for us to vote him/her into office (as compared to a big-government Liberal) and then work to convince him/her to support the GLBT community. You can’t spend your time on GLBT issues if you don’t have a job to pay the bills.
Economic liberty and prosperity gives us the power to change minds and hearts about the GLBT issues.
Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.
