Introducing the Illinois GOP Network

The Illinois Republican Party is down, but a long way from being out. As the party rebuilds from the ground up, after a string of disappointing election days, now is the time for bloggers and other interested individuals to take part in the growth process. Illinois is the home state of Abraham Lincoln, and the birthplace of Ronald Reagan, two great Republican presidents. And remember, it wasn't so long ago, 1995 to be exact, when the Illinois GOP controlled each statewide office, both chambers of the General Assembly, and the Governor's Mansion.

And the governor at the time, Jim Edgar, actually lived in the mansion.

As James Thurber once wrote, "You could look it up!"

The good old days were not that long ago, and they could be back sooner than you think.

Where does one start? By networking and building, and the place to do it is at the new Illinois GOP Network Forum.

I don't think we're going to help the Illinois GOP much until we can weed out the current bums from Springfield.

Better to be a Conservative on the outside than just another Liberal/Republican. The party must stand for something or we should call it the democrat party.

So based on the previous comment should one assume that only Conservatives are Republicans and therefore the blog is for them? And, has our history recently changed to show that during the time Republicans were in office (see original post), those who were in office were all Conservatives, too?

Sounds like we're off to a great start, huh?

If you read the banner on the front page of the site it says Pulling Together. Building Together.

Anon....does that help answer your question?

Rob's right:

"Can't we all be just friends?!?"
