Joseph Spencer, author of "What Can One Man Do," (htp://www.onemancan.org) is one person who is making a difference. He reminds us all, "The greatest mistake is to do nothing because you can only do a little. The Constitution and our republic matter. I couldn't sleep if I didn't do my part." He's starting by helping conservatives in his own state assembly district to take back America one block at a time...starting with their own.

Mr. Spencer states his mission, "By using the latest technology to connect conservative voters with local conservative activists, we can keep more voters informed and substantially increase voter turnout. By training those local activists how to focus on their own neighborhoods, they quickly become the 'go to' experts and the source for reliable information on candidates and issues all the way down the ballot. We want to turn the conventional campaign process on its head."

If the GOP is going to give the Democrats a November wakeup call, they need a more welcoming conservatism that meets people where they live. The Democrats have ushered in a new cultural malaise, an exploding deficit, an unpopular "Affordable" Care Act, and an anemic economic "recovery." The time is right if conservatives are ready, willing, and empowered with systems to connect with and influence their neighbors.

Don't accept that America is in inevitable decline. Reclaim Reagan's optimism: “Whatever else history may say about me when I’m gone, I hope it will record that I appealed to your best hopes, not your worst fears; to your confidence rather than your doubts. My dream is that you will travel the road ahead with liberty’s lamp guiding your steps and opportunity’s arm steadying your way.”
