"Are you really tired of liberal elitists defeating your values, diminishing your freedoms, and stealing your money?" [enthusiastic cheers from the crowd]
Taking a seat in the Regency Ballroom of the Omni Shoreham Hotel in DC for the 2009 Conservative Political Action Conference, this is what I heard from Lori Roman of RegularFolksUnited.com. She started her organization to "hold the liberal elitists accountable" for "doing things in your home town or home state." It's a democratic ("SMALL d," she emphasized) website where people can post their latest outrage, and take action. And they've "trained" talk radio hosts to go there for stories.
I see banter on my website... Sometimes people ask: Does it really matter? It does matter. It matters when we shut down the [Congressional] switchboard... Sometimes it feels like the liberal elitists are trampling over you every day... Remember, we are our only hope. We have to use every venue we can. There's more of us than them. We need to fight back!
Thanks to Joe the Plumber and Sarah Palin, they're listening to Regular Folks... I said to myself, 'I want those bitter, gun-and-religion-clinging folks on my site.'
