Fighting for Conservatism

Low taxes, strong families, a strong military, and the rule of law. Not only are these ideas the core of Conservative principles, but they are policies that have shown, time and time again, that they are critical to creating a country that is stronger, safer, more productive, and more prosperous for decades to come. The Cold War victory under Reagan, the Contract with Americaput forward by Congressional Republican candidates in 1994, and the post-9/11 Bush tax cuts that helped to avoid a deep recession have proven that their are few things better for our country than the implementation of strong, Conservative policies.

Unfortunately, before we can even try to implement these policies on a national level, we have to get leaders into office who support them, and in some places, even getting the nomination for a Conservative in our party’s primary can be a challenge (ex. that old guy in Alaska). Now more than at any time in the last thirty years, the party is locked in an internal struggle between the Reagan Conservatives and the centrists. The selection of John McCain as our nominee for President shows that Conservatives still have work to do. We have to finally reject the idea that any Republican is inherently better than any other candidate. This is damaging to the Conservative cause, and is one of the reasons that a Congress controlled by Republican couldn’t even keep pork spending under control. Principle must come before power, not the other way around.

And that brings us to Project 25. The 2006 elections, and the results of the 2008 primaries have shown that there is a real need for Conservatives to step up and reclaim their party. As a proud Reaganite, I’ll be contributing in all possible ways – from blogging, to web ads and more. If you want to join Project 25, simply leave a comment on any post and there is a good chance you’ll be able to become a writer for the site.

    The elite, old guard republicans have spoken!
    Conservatives can shut up and do as they are told.

    Most Reagan Conservatives out of fear will march to the McCain battle cry – Conservatism vs. Socialism!

    Unless something drastic happens we can all sit back and watch history unfold before our eyes as the first African American is sworn in as President of the United States.

    As conservatives our focus should be on the number of Congressional and Senatorial seats because the White House is in the hands of the almighty.
