The Washington Times published today an op-ed article written by me, "Conservative-led opposition needed," which states in part:
Republican politicians have failed conservatives, the GOP itself and America. We're heading down the tracks to socialism or worse, with the GOP as caboose. . .
Sadly, too many conservative leaders either blindly supported former President George W. Bush, Karl Rove, and congressional Republicans or were silent as big-government politicians abandoned conservative principles and massively expanded government. . .
We have a party and a country to save, and the Republican establishment is part of the problem, not the solution. Conservatives must not wait for orders from headquarters: Rush to the sound of the guns. . .
Leadership starts with each of us. We should cease looking to Republican politicians for leadership. . .
