Conservatives nationwide are angry with Washington, D.C. Their anger goes beyond the partisan bickering at President Obama and the Democrats. Conservatives are angry with Washington in general and increasingly reserve most of their contempt for Republicans.
In 2006, after fighting their own party over the expansion of the welfare state and out-of-control domestic spending disguised as war spending, conservatives threw up their hands. The public at large had turned against the Republican Party. Conservatives grew indifferent. Only Nancy Pelosi as Speaker and Barack Obama as President rekindled the intra-party love affair between conservative activists and Republican Leaders.
But after using conservative energy to get themselves back in control of the House of Representatives, Republican leaders started ignoring conservative demands. They fought half-heartedly or not at all. They cut deals with the Democrats. They ran scared, convinced they should not figure out how to sell their own ideas, but use polling to chart their course.
Conservatives have become disgusted. According to one recent poll, 60 ppercecnt of conservatives do not care for how Washington Republicans are conducting themselves in office. Around the country, conservative have decided to fight back.
In Kentucky, Matt Bevin, the last man in America to still domestically produce church bells, is running against Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican minority leader. Bevin has the support of the Jim DeMint, who created Senate Conservatives Fund. McConnell has responded by launching insider attacks against the Senate Conservatives Fund. Like Barack Obama's IRS targeting tea party groups for harassment, McConnell and his lobbying friends in Washington have targeted companies doing business with the Senate Conservatives Fund. They have made clear that those companies will either stop working with conservatives or not get business from Republicans in Washington.

Democrats have a constituency - the crazy, the lazy, the moochers, socialistss, sexual deviates, racists, criminals and America haters.
And they serve them well.
Republicans have a constiuency - the RINOs, the democrat lites, the constitutionalists, conservatives and patriots.
But they are embarrased by the last three and do not serve us well.
In fact, they don’t serve us hardly at all.
Until the republican party stops trying to out pander the democrat party and embraces conservatives they will not compete successfully with democrats on the national level.
You are correct. I have a RNC fund-raising letter on my desk. They won’t get 1 cent from me until they embrace the Tea Party!
Progressives are my enemies... whether they have an “r” or a “d” beside their name... if they are progressive... they are against Conservatives and conspire with each other to strip us and those like us of Freedom, Liberty and our Pursuit of Happiness... and all of our hard earned money and investments. Politically... progressives are al qaeda.
They will never get my support again - neither my money nor my vote. I send every letter back with sticker telling them I only support the Senate Conservatives Fund.
