On Saturday, over a thousand Illinois citizens came together at the State Capitol in Springfield, Illinois, to declare their God-given rights in the face of oppression by Governor J.B.

Pundits and politicians across the nation write off our state as dark blue, a bastion of leftist thought and policy. Conservative presidential candidates often bypass Illinois, also assuming it’s a lost cause and a Democrat stronghold.

To the base of the Party – Conservatives who stand firmly on the adopted Republican Party platform – the causes are abundantly clear. Party leadership made no attempt to unify the Party, failed to support good candidates and failed to effectively communicate to voters the principles of the Republican Party.… Continue Reading
