Since the end of the Vietnam War, the United States has not had a greater need for strong conservative leadership. The reason is obvious: Barack Obama has attempted to change the nature of the country and has been somewhat successful, particularly regarding foreign relations, the economy, and social issues. We need a conservative. We need Ted Cruz.
With that said, we’ve recently been questioned about our motives for being so pro-Cruz. As many are noticing, we’re emerging as an alternative to the Drudge Report that isn’t so beholden to Donald Trump. Initially, we did this out of anger towards the clear lack of fairness and balance at Drudge. It’s Matt Drudge’s site and since we’re still in a free country, he has every right to do it. Our initial response – being pro-Cruz.
It didn’t take long to realize that we shouldn’t simply post a bunch of Cruz fanboy articles and Trump hater rants. Advice from comments, emails, and even Tweets told us that if we simply focused on conservatism and helping Americans adopt those values, that the truth on a wider scale would be much more potent than just being anti-Drudge, anti-Trump.
Now, we’re getting a handful of emails asking for more pro-Cruz content. While we appreciate that sentiment, it’s important for the sanctity of the conservatism that we love that we focus less on Cruz, Cruz, and Cruz and more on America itself.
If Cruz is the news, we’ll happily post it. If Trump is the news (as he normally is), we’ll post that as well. However, the goal of the site is not just to help Cruz get the nomination and win the election. There is more happening in America and the world than the election.
We’ll help Cruz, but we’re also going to highlight the news and opinions that conservative Americans should be reading, watching, and sharing. In other words, we’re not just going to be a pro-Cruz version of the pro-Trump Drudge Report. We’re going to be what Drudge Report should have always been.
We need two things from you, our readers. First, we need advice, tips, and recommendations. What will improve the site? What news should we be posting? The second thing we need is help spreading the word. Social media helps.
The country desperately needs conservatism to right the disastrous course Obama has put us on. Patriotic Americans must be more informed than our liberal counterparts. This is the goal. Help us fight the good fight against liberalism.
