I just launched MassConservatives.com because I am fed up with Massachusetts liberalism. I think it’s an outrage that Massachusetts is completely controlled by the Big Government Party. While Barney Frank and his pals in DC have contributed to this financial crisis, the Democrats on Beacon Hill are raising taxes and implementing their left-wing ideology here at home.
Massachusetts can change. In the ’80 and ’84 Presidential elections, Massachusetts voted FOR Ronald Reagan. At the ballot box in 2000, Massachusetts voters said YES to lower taxes and in 2002 we said YES to English immersion. In 2007, the radical left spent over $5 million to AVOID a statewide vote on marriage; they rightly feared the voters of the Commonwealth would say YES to marriage as one man and one woman (if given the chance.)
The voters of Massachusetts are not extremely liberal on the issues but they continue to elect the same big government politicians. These liberal politicians are sly – they will say one thing in their district, but vote a different way on Beacon Hill.
The Democrat Party in Massachusetts does not operate as an independent agent. There are left-wing groups, unions, and other organizations across the state that assist and provide valuable support to Democrat candidates and causes.
MassConservatives.com is giving you your chance to fight back and to join a growing movement of principled conservatives to advance our cause. The recent tea parties that are erupting across the country exemplify the growing demand for a strong conservative voice that is willing to take to the streets and work for our principles. It’s not enough to be right on the issues, we must also be doing.
This is our scorecard:
D – conservative in Massachusetts.
C – conservative and voting.
B – conservative, voting, and donating.
A – conservative, voting, donating, and volunteering.
A+ conservative, and running for office.
