Leadership Starts with Us, Not Them

Here might be the best damned advice conservatives will get all year….

“Republican politicians have failed conservatives, the GOP itself and America. We’re heading down the tracks to socialism or worse, with the GOP as caboose. . . .We have a party and a country to save, and the Republican establishment is part of the problem, not the solution. Conservatives must not wait for orders from headquarters. Leadership starts with each of us. We should cease looking to Republican politicians for leadership.”

That was conservative icon and direct mail fundraising guru Richard Viguerie talking about GOP congressional leaders. But he could have just as well been talking about Nevada Republican Senate Minority Leader Bill Raggio, Republican Assembly Minority Leader Heidi Gansert and the vast majority of legislative Republicans.

As they say, if the shoe fits….
