“What Can I Do?” You Can Run For Precinct Committeeman!

Written by John Biver

Years before the rise of the Tea Party movement some of the more common questions among conservatives at political events were, “What can be done?” “What’s the plan?” “What can I do?”

(More) Conservative Christians (Still) Needed to Rescue Illinois

Written by John Biver

The above (slightly altered) title, which was added to a recent post after I wrote it, is too good to use only once. Conservative Christians are needed — and it is a rescue mission.

Is Illinois too far gone? Too many big problems that can’t be solved?

Conservative Christians Needed to Step Up

Monte Larrick’s introduction to the video posted below says it well:

“You see and feel what’s happening in Illinois…high taxes…fiscal chaos…businesses and your hard-working friends leaving the state…a liberal social agenda…and we can’t just blame Democrats for the mess in Illinois when too many Republicans are contributing to our state’s downfall.”

While there is much to cause despair, the truth is that Christian conservatives can make a huge impact — especially when it comes to the workings of the Republican Party.… Continue Reading

Get Involved Locally. You Might Just Save the Country.

Written by David E. Smith

Lest you think Illinois Family Action is being overly dramatic with that headline, you should know that we borrowed it from The Daily Signal, the news publication of the renowned Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C.

In the article, writer Slade O’Brien lays out an encouraging argument for Americans to get involved:

HELP WANTED: Precinct Committeemen

Precinct Committeeman

Written by Doug Ibendahl

A Republican Precinct Committeeman represents the Republican voters of her or his precinct at the County Party level.
