More than 11,000 people from all 50 states and at least a dozen other nations gathered at the Rally for the Republic held in Minneapolis on September 2. The sheer number of media present was astounding. As I walked the floor I was stopped and interviewed by a German TV crew who flew in just to cover the event. A Vanity Fair writer also spoke with me at length, although I got the distinct impression that he was there to figure out how to achieve his predetermined angle on a story already written, if only just in his head, about an event that had not yet begun. To be fair and since I don't believe in "thought crimes" charged by hasty judgments, please allow me to retract my previous assumption and replace it with a more palatable, "The Vanity Fair writer I spoke with was polite, young, hip, polished, and mum--all of those things you want in a hired gun columnist. Why? Because it's disarming."
Please check out the three minute Cliff Notes explanation of the wacky extremist movement chaired by Ron Paul, as brought to you by his fellow member of Congress (ret.) Barry Goldwater, Jr.
Goldwater introduced Congressman Paul at the Rally, and to thunderous applause--the vibrations of which will be felt for decades to come.
Editor's Note: These folks aren't going away. And it's the waste-of-oxygen, tax-and-spend, bloated "legislation is the answer" cry-baby boomers in both parties that best be watching their backs. The "Old Right" is back in vogue, and this time they're armed with both pitchforks and muskets. It is worth noting that they are now very well-versed in fighting techniques since the 50-state war was declared on them by the GOP leaders at the county, district, state, and national convention levels in 2008. Come January, I would be very afraid of losing my personal power in the Republican Party if I was one of their empty-headed cheerleaders. A shockingly limited government is not only the answer to our nation's woes--it's the demand of a million+ proud new members of the Old Right.
This million member strong movement is just barely a week old. It has nothing to do with a candidate, so you can stop sympathizing with McCain's endangering-his-election heart palpitations. This brand new movement is now about millions of new leaders and millions of reforms--reforms at the county, district, state, and national levels.
More laws and more government regulations + less accountability to the taxpayers are NOT Republican values. If you don't understand what I am talking about then you don't belong in the Republican Party anymore--especially in a professional capacity. I hear the Socialist Party is taking new hires this time of year.
