Advocating on Behalf of the American Military and Defense on the War on Terror

The folks over at are onto a very smart thing - showing some leadership on well, leadership.

Take a look for yourself.

....I want to quickly draw your attention to a website that just went up that reflects the sentiments of many in Republican circles; the need for wholesale change in Republican leadership in both the House and Senate.

They are clearly trying to get a big head start before the November election.

Please take a look. Any promotional assistance (links, banners, etc.) you could offer would be greatly appreciated. Also, the group is looking to build a broad coalition. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if your organization would like to become involved. FULL DISCLOSURE: I am involved with the group that is promoting this and Red County has decided to host the site on our servers.

Feedback welcome...

The Spirit of '94 initiative was born out of sincere and justifiable frustration with the current slate of Republican leaders in the United States Congress. It is an initiative led by grassroots Republican activists in both the donor and business communities.

The effort was the result of the overwhelming response to two articles. The first was titled,
We Refuse to Support a Permanent Minority written by members of the Lincoln Club of Orange County and published in Red County magazine. That was followed immediately by an outstanding article in the Washington Post titled, Ultimatum to the GOP, by columnist Robert Novak.

More than twenty five years ago, Ronald Reagan articulated a vision for America and the role of government that was embraced by the American people. For the first time in many years, a Republican was clearly communicating the values of the political right. With the notable exception of Newt Gingrich and 104th Congress, Republicans have stumbled in further communicating how America should confront the important issues of the day.

From energy, health care, and education to the Republican hallmarks of lower taxes, less bureaucracy, and fiscal responsibility, the Republican leadership in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate have failed us... and failed America.

Come this November, regardless of who prevails in the election as next president, it is incumbent upon all Republicans to help identify and elect a new slate of Republican leadership.
