"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States when men were free" - President Ronald Reagan.
"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the industrious out of it. You don't multiply wealth by dividing it. Government cannot give anything to anybody that it doesn't first take from somebody else. Whenever somebody receives something without working for it, somebody else has to work for it without receiving. The worst thing that can happen to a nation is for half of the people to get the idea they don't have to work because somebody else will work for them, and the other half to get the idea that it does no good to work because they don't get to enjoy the fruits of their labor. - Adrian Rogers1931 - 2005
One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors - Plato (Greekphilosopher 437 BC - 347 BC)
We are a grassroots organization. We have no political party affiliations. We are non-partisan. We do not endorse any political candidates. We do support conservative issues. Our goals are to bring conservative views to the public on current issues and encourage everyone to exercise their right to vote.
