Over at RedState, Erick Erickson makes a great point about rebuilding the conservative movement that can be applied to Colorado:
In the past few years, SEIU, AFL-CIO, NEA, DCCC, and a host of other left-wing organizations have been buying ads on left of center blogs keeping those blogs going â€” allowing the bloggers on the left some financial incentive to keep blogging for the left….
In addition to all of that, youâ€™ve got the Soros gang and SEIU engaging in a host of left-wing activities online that recruit and fund online writers â€” bloggers, journalists, etc….
Every day in Washington, there is some right-wing group somewhere bemoaning the efforts of the right online. Sadly, for them and the rest of the right, their first thought is â€œletâ€™s do it ourselvesâ€, instead of â€œletâ€™s invest in the existing talent.â€ Until the second becomes the first, the right will keep meeting in private to bemoan its (in)effectiveness online.
Conservative business owners and operators in Colorado, take heed. Sure, I’m always glad to take on advertisers (at a modest rate), but if you aren’t necessarily keen on my site there are other members of the Rocky Mountain Alliance and People’s Press Collective.
Just a thought … Now back to your regularly scheduled blogging.
