>>Dave, get serious. Eagle Forum is a conservative group that we agreewith on more than half of the serious issues we work on over time.
Because they are ignorant of economic issues accounts for the big
difference –they tend to be protectionist. To be so doctrinaire to be
apposed to a group 100% because you disagree on a particular issue is
counter-productive. We need to build coalitions on issues –one by one.
They will support us on certain issues –don’t blow them off. We’ll
continue to try and educate them on our principles. Ken Blackwell is
fine man and deserves our support even if some group you don’t like on
certain issues supports him. –Geo.<<
Sorry, George. I disagree with them on a lot more than just
protectionism. They're also nativists, homophobes, caesaropapalists,
drug warriors and book burners. Their positions on individual liberty
are absolutely abominable. I can't see how anyone who's vaguely
libertarian has much in common

We can't get a libertarian RNC chairman without first having a significant
number of county and state GOP chairmen. We need to trickle up. We are doing a
bit in this direction, but it is a long term task. We need to learn who are
the fair-weather fiscal conservatives and who are the real free marketers, and
then support the latter at all levels of the GOP organizations.
