As usual the forums show that the common beliefs of Conservatism are shared when we choose to sit down and listen to each other and shut out preconceived notions of what a Neocon, Libertarian or Socialcon may mean. I think the audience itself found that at times the Liberty view appealed to them more than the other and vice versa.
Keith Strahan represented the Liberty Republican view. He did an excellent job, and as always, we're proud to have him as part of our team. Personally, I feel the greatest message he may have delivered to the audience was the appeal not to shut out younger voters and Liberty voters because of the fear of the Libertarian viewpoint. I feel many have reached a point where they are willing to do that in the party, at least at the grassroots level. And they find, as we have learned ourselves, Conservatism principles are more common between both groups then they realize.
The RLC hosts a number of these through the district and they are always a great time. if you have not been to one, I strongly suggest you attend one. If you want one in your area, please feel free to contact us and we'll gladly help organize one.
