conservative principles

Rush Was Close, But…

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The White House leaking problem is bigger than an absence of loyalty to Donald Trump. I think it is the absence of loyalty to principles, especially conservative principles.

Louie Gohmert: America’s Last Hope To Preserve Constitutional Liberty

Rep. Louie Gohmert, one man with principles – and a gut level love for his country and constitutional liberty – can do what a gallery full of House Republican mice would never dare – get mad, get emotional, get angry and confront the Democrats about what really got 50 people killed in Orlando.

Erick and Bill Have Jumped the #NeverTrump Shark

Two conservative thinkers for whom we have a great deal of respect, Bill Kristol and Erick Erickson, have finally jumped the shark and entered a bizarre new #NeverTrump political dimension where Mitt Romney is a viable candidate for president and forming a third party five months before the election is a realistic means of electing an alternative to Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Was Banning Muslim Immigration Just Another Trump Con?

We’d like to think that Donald Trump will eventually earn our vote by committing to conservative positions and policies and campaigning as a conservative, but now that he's backing off his call for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our representatives can figure out what the hell is going on” what sounded to us like sensible policy is looking like just another political con.

I Endorse Dr. John Fleming for Senate in Louisiana

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
I have every confidence Dr. John Fleming will maintain the same steadfast commitment to conservative principles he displayed in the House if he is elected to the Senate.

Ted Cruz Is Right – America Is At A Point Of Choosing

What’s at stake in this election is not just who will occupy the Oval Office, but what governing principles will be operative in America for the next generation.

This is about as tight a statement of the goals and credo of the winning 21st century conservative coalition that the English language will allow.

Cruz Crushes Trump And Rubio In Iowa

Despite the millions of dollars spent against him, the opposition of the entire Republican political establishment and the media fascination with Donald Trump, last night Ted Cruz proved that, when given the choice, voters will vote for the principled limited government constitutional conservative candidate who sticks to his principles – and who runs a smart campaign.

Scott Walker’s Disappointing Weathervane Campaign

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
More than anything conservatives are looking for principled leadership on the issues. Far from "taking the gloves off," Scott Walker's reluctant attack on the amorphous "they" of the DC Republican establishment shows Gov. Walker to be more like a weathervane following the political winds, than a compass pointing true North on the foundational principles of the conservative agenda.

Ken Cuccinelli Nails Obama and ObamaCare

In his response to Obama's weekly address Ken Cuccinelli did a masterful job of distilling things down to conservative principles vs. Obama's secular liberalism. With less than three weeks left until Virginia's Election Day, Ken Cuccinelli needs your support and your vote more than ever.
