    Colorado Congressional Delegation on Twitter

    At least five members of Colorado’s Congressional delegation are on Twitter:

    Let them know that you want them to vote against HR 3200.

    Republican Study Committee of Colorado

    According to their website, the “Republican Study Committee of Colorado (RSCC) is a voluntary association of elected Colorado legislators that formulates, supports, and communicates legislative actions and positions consistent with its vision and Declaration of Principles. Modeled after the Republican Study Committee of the U.S. Congress, the RSCC provides long range planning and continuity between legislative sessions, helps identify and prioritize content on issues supported by the RSCC, fosters better coordination with groups that support Republican core issues, and increases the potential for national and state-to-state sharing and coordination of legislative information.”

    The following video provides information about the RSCC:

    In the second paragraph of their “Declaration of Principles,” “Members of the Republican Study Committee of Colorado [state that they] agree with the national Republican Study Committee in [their] dedication to a limited and Constitutional role for civil government, a strong national defense, the protection of individual and property rights, and the preservation of traditional family values.”

    The RSCC is on Twitter at RSCColorado, and I was pleased to learn through an update today that “RSCC members are joining the Patrick Henry Caucus this week” [link added].

    Maybe there’s hope for the Republican Party in Colorado after all.

    Protesting Is Not Enough

    I recently ran across a quote attributed to Leonardo da Vinci: “I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.” I’ve had a couple of exchanges on Twitter along these lines, and I’d like to paraphrase the Renaissance genius for contemporary conservatives:

    Listening to talk shows is not enough; we must study.

    You can learn a lot from listening to, watching, and reading Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Laura Ingraham, and other talk show hosts about current events and issues; I have. However, if you want to really understand issues and be able to support your views, you need to study history, philosophy, economics, and specific issues in depth. That probably means reading. (Horrors!)

    Obviously, you should start with the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and the Federalist Papers.

    After that, you can find books (and websites) on various issues on the Information on Issues for Conservatives wiki, and I plan to add to this wiki in the future. I would also recommend Penn Pfiffner’s Freedom Reading List on the Free People Free Markets Ning site. Glenn Beck has some history books listed on the 912 Project website, and last week he spoke to the authors of the following books on an episode of his show titled “Destined To Repeat(?)”:

    • Robert Gellately, Lenin, Stalin, and Hitler: The Age of Social Catastrophe
    • Ronald. J. Pestritto, Woodrow Wilson and the Roots of Modern Liberalism
    • Amity Shlaes, The Forgotten Man: A New History of the Great Depression
    • Johan Goldberg, Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Change

    Complaining is not enough; we must teach.

    Start with your family, especially children and college/university students, and friends.  Join the online conversation with a Twitter account or a blog.  (If you need help, I’m working on a series of lessons on Social Media for Conservatives.)  Explain to them what you’ve learned in your studies.  Discuss the issues in a reasoned and polite manner.

    Protesting is not enough; we must lead.

    Contact your elected representatives and let them know what you think about the issues they’re considering.  Volunteer for a conservative official or candidate.  Serve in your community on a city or county board or commission or with a non-profit organization.  Run for office.

    Whatever you do, stick to your conservative principles.

    I’m posting these tweets here because they have disappeared from my updates page along with others posted during the same time.  The ones before and since are still there.

    I want Obama to fail.

    I want his policies to fail.

    I want the Democrats in Congress to fail.

    I want liberals and liberalism to fail.

    I want socialists and socialism to fail.

    I want universal health care to fail.

    I want cap and trade to fail.

    I want Democrats’ efforts to raise taxes and increase the size and power of government to fail.

    I want Obama’s efforts to ruin the U.S. economy to fail.

    I want Obama’s and other Democrats’ efforts to destroy capitalism to fail.

    I want Obama’s efforts to undermine the Constitution to fail.

    However, I want America and Americans individually to succeed.

    More Questions for #RNCChair Candidates

    I have some more questions for the RNC Chair candidates:

    • Do you play any MMORPGs?  Do you have a Second Life avatar?  How much experience do you have with online multi-player role-playing games and/or virtual worlds?
    • How can Second Life and other virtual worlds be used to advance our candidates and causes?
    • If you have been a state party chairman, what was the percentage of elected offices in your state held by Republicans when you started and when you finished?  How will your experience in that office influence your decisions and actions as RNC Chair?
    • If you have run for office or managed a campaign, what is your win-loss record?  How will your campaign experience influence your decisions and actions as RNC Chair?
    • How long have you been using “social media” like Twitter and Facebook?
    • Have you ever had a blog?  When did you start it?  How often do/did you post in it?
