The January 27 RLC Kickoff turned out to be a landmark event, highlighting, as speakers, State Legislators willing to stand for life and liberty without compromise and who, in so doing, represent the principles on which the nation was founded and the hope of restoring the Republic.
The Freedom Agenda
Matt Shea, it is now obvious, is the most important elected official in the State of Washington, the highest ranking Conservative in its government and an articulate firebrand of liberty. He set the stage for what many of us went to Yakima to support: “Leadership is not the ability to compromise, but the ability NOT to” and the supporting cast, whose speeches follow, taken as a group, were equally inspiring.
I give you the statesmen of the Freedom Agenda:
We will attempt to acquire a transcript of Matt’s speech.
In all my years in the Party, we have never had (in Olympia) a united Liberty team like this one – GOP Establishment notwithstanding – all of them with the courage not to compromise on the imperatives of the movement, all of them unmovable on the Constitution, all of them committed to the Inalienable Right to Life.
In his address, Matt Shea said,
“Talking about social issues is not DIVISIVE. It is DECISIVE.“
“We have a pro-life majority in this country and to alienate that part of the Republican base IS literally the suicide of the Party.”
By the end of the RLC Kickoff it was clear that all we have to do as the grass roots is to remain true to the ideals these legislators have the courage to champion.
