DeMint Leading The Charge For Conservatives
Washington Post - Mark Thiessen writes of Sen. Jim DeMint's efforts to shake up the U.S. Senate by not only electing more Republicans, but more conservatives. 

McConnell Backs Grayson Over Paul in KY
Hotline On Call -- Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell rushes to support Trey Grayson after Politico reveals that the GOP member who lied to Dr. James Dobson about Rand Paul's pro-life beliefs was none other than McConnell himself.

Tea Partiers: Neither Racist Nor Extremists
World Net Daily - Black conservative Mychal Massie writes that it is ludicrous and irresponsible for liberal leaders (such as Bill Clinton, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson) to claim that Tea Partiers are driven by race, because skin-color has absolutely nothing to do with the movement's motives. 

The Problem Is More Than Just Government
American Thinker - Bruce Walker writes of the toxic influence of factions (or Parties) on society, which become truly dangerous when they're able to infect and takeover government.  Contrary to the major Parties of today, Walker argues, the Tea Parties are successful because they champion ordered liberty instead of interest group politics - the elevation of the individual above the whims of factions.

Republicans Bow To The American Oligarchy
Weekly Standard - It's a widely circulated myth that the Republican Party is the Party of the super-rich, because a quick look at the statistics proves that the wealthy almost exclusively contribute to the Democrats.  Despite the discrepancy, Republicans have shown little appetite for reforming the 'crony capitalism' that's taking place on Wall Street (and Washington) today - which means Republicans have given tacit approval to America's financial oligarchy.

Anti-Incumbent Fervor May Claim Burton in Indiana
Washington Times - Rep. Dan Burton is just the type of politician that you'd expect in a normal year to cruise to re-election - after all, he's accumulated a reasonable voting record and represented a district that's overwhelmingly Republican.  2010 is no 'ordinary' year, however, as Tea Party activists in his home state of Indiana feel it's time to bring in new blood to represent them, putting Burton's political future in jeopardy.

GOP Constitutes Task Force On The 10th Amendment
Roll Call - A group of House conservatives will announce the formation of a task force this week to study ways the 10th Amendment can be used to return more power and influence to the states.  The rapid growth of the federal government over the past two decades along with the refocus on the Constitution brought about by the Tea Parties has finally forced some in Congress to look into returning some power back to the states - and to the people.

All Elections - Even School Board Races - Have Consequences
American Thinker (blog) - Judging by the voting numbers, the vast majority of Americans seem to pay attention only to the highest profile election contests, but here's an example of how a local school board official's election made quite a difference (in a bad way) for her community - and why it's imperative for conservatives to get involved in elections at every level.
