Never shy, Flagwaver, a “35 year old black male from the great state of North Carolina,” takes on the moderate Republicans here, and here and says it’s time for conservatives to reassert themselves and stop letting RINO’s (Republicans In Name Only) return to Congress year after year:

“What we conservatives need to do is not wait until general elections come to make changes, but to get involved in the primaries. The primary level is where we, the voters, can have the most impact on the direction of the party.”

Publius II (Mesa, AZ)

“We're just a couple of lunatics that focus our attention on the current events of the day, the daily political grind, issues regarding the war, and some occasional legal thoughts regarding Constitutional matters. We're registered GOP, but we're intellectually honest ones. We have gripes with politicians across the spectrum, not just the Left though they do tend to be our favorite beating post.”
