Illinois Conservative Union Calls for New GOP Chairman

Almost one month has passed since the November 6th midterm elections. Many have analyzed the losses suffered by the Republican Party in Illinois. 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. Due to this failure of leadership and lack of accepting any responsibility for the losses, Illinois Conservative Union (ICU) calls for Tim Schneider to step down from his position as Chairman.… Continue Reading

Complacent Conservatives Should Learn the Murkowski Lesson

Written by Daniel Horowitz

If we are so busy “owning the libs” that we ignore the libs festering within our own ranks to the point where “our party” agrees with 90 percent of what the libs want, isn’t it time we focused on cleaning our own house?

The biggest news of the day outside the Kavanaugh cloture vote in the U.S. Senate is that one Republican, Lisa Murkowski from the solid red state of Alaska, voted against him.… Continue Reading

Will the GOP Back Its Pro-Life Platform With Action? (Video)

Written by Tamara Jackson

Our nation was founded unlike any other nation in history. England embraced a feudal system, followed by a system of peerage and a (dead) state church whose head was the country’s sovereign and often tyrannical ruler.

France endured a godless revolution, resulting in a political system constrained by the motto: “liberté, égalité, fraternité.” (i.e. “liberty, equality, brotherhood”)

That sounds noble, but devoid of God and godly principles, only freedom and equality are left, both determined precariously by the whims of the masses rather than transcendent Truth.… Continue Reading

The Stupidity of the GOP

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Republicans have already given away the farm.

Imagine a teenager goes on a shopping spree with his dad’s credit card one month and unalterably charges the card with hundreds of thousands in expenditures. Then, the next day at the supper table, he passes his dad a note saying he is willing to help balance the family’s budget. You are as foolish as that dad if you are taken in by the GOP’s vote this week on a balanced budget amendment.… Continue Reading

Hillary’s Hateful Harangue

Written by David Limbaugh

Hillary Clinton’s abhorrent remarks in Mumbai, India, warrant our attention because, like it or not, they represent the thinking of a large swath of the modern Democratic Party.

But my aim is not to highlight Clinton’s never-ending catalog of excuses for losing the presidential election, except to note that rather than blame everyone and everything but herself, she should apologize for stealing the nomination. If she hadn’t done that, she wouldn’t have to blame anyone.… Continue Reading

Let’s Go Illinoisans! Send Jeanne Ives to the Governor’s Mansion!

Written by Laurie Higgins

With the country riven by unbridgeable ideological divisions and all manner of corruption, we here in one of the sorriest-run, most corrupt states have a breath of fresh air in gubernatorial candidate State Representative Jeanne Ives.

Conservatives of all stripes have a candidate in Ives who unapologetically embraces the entire Republican platform and does so with courage, wisdom, grace, and integrity. Ives is a smart, well-informed, tireless straight shooter. Illinoisans must not pass up this opportunity to elect a candidate of this caliber.… Continue Reading

The Truth About the History of the Democratic Party

Written by John Biver

This past summer, the Illinois Family Institute’s Laurie Higgins penned “District U-46 Board Member’s Dishonest FB Post About Rep. Ives.” In it, she wrote about the far Leftist Traci O’Neal Ellis, who not only lies about State Rep. Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton), but also called the Republican National Convention the “Klanvention.” Higgins wrote:

Astonishingly… Ellis posted this on her FB page:

“Oh, and by the way, I absolutely, unequivocally, stand by my comment about the RNC, because, you know, free speech and all.

Conservative Christians Needed to Rescue Illinois

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

What Does it Mean to Be a Republican?

Written by Lt. Col. Allen B. West

[Over the summer], MSNBC host and former U.S. Congressman from Florida Joe Scarborough said on a late night talk show that he was no longer a Republican. Scarborough admitted that he would be registering as an Independent. This is the same Joe Scarborough who came of age in the constitutional conservative ideological legislative revolution of one Newt Gingrich and his “Contract with America”. Of course, these days there are many folks changing their party affiliations to Independent.… Continue Reading

Ineffective GOP Messaging Leads to Tax Hikes Without Reforms Every Time

Written by John Biver

Every time state spending increases and taxes are raised, Republicans and conservatives issue statements expressing disappointment and disgust with those who played a part in making it happen. For many of us watching this Illinois tax and spend train wreck year after year, these statements are tiresome.

Bad things happen. Our side reacts to those bad things with statements.

These pages have outlined and linked to other articles explaining that Illinois’ problem is a simple math problem.… Continue Reading
