I had the honor of speaking to the WSU College Republicans last night. I told them that when I started this blog, I was guided by three principles:
1. Tell it like it is. Use the facts and truth to cut through all the BS in local politics.
2. Deeds, not words. Anything that I advocated on the blog would be backed up by my personal activism. That is why I have been involved with BREO and the Whitman County Republican Party
3. It takes a village to annoy a liberal. Who wants to hear me rant all the time? I have always wanted Palousitics to be a community blog that reflects many different conservative/libertarian viewpoints.
In furtherance of #3, I have asked Paul Zimmerman to join Palousitics and share his very erudite commentary with us from time to time. I have also invited some of our WSU College Republicans to join us and share their perspectives as well.
There is a nasty lie being circulated by our local Rats that Whitman County Republicans/conservatives don't care about students and want to divide the community. Baloney! Students are an important part of our community and they represent our future. I commended them last night for being involved on the right side at such an early age. I'm ashamed to admit that when I was in college, I was a Young Democrat and my first Presidential vote was cast for (wasted on).....gulp....Walter Mondale.
Let's welcome them all!
