Conservative Community Organizer

With a community organizer-in-chief as President of the United States, I have been thinking about what assumptions need to be changed in order to keep America vibrant and dynamic.
  • First, people need to be disabused of the idea that the Federal Government does everything. Ceding that much power to faceless, unelected bureaucrats kills local contol.
  • Second, liberal community organizers like ACORN have one purpose - to obtain federal money to support their cause. A real "community" organization eschews outside control.

In Democracy in America, Alexis de Tocqueville pointed out how many things were accomplished by voluntary associations in America. If people think the feds will do everything, they won't get involved.

I am convinced the only way to really change the course of the country is to have real community organizations who don't get funding from Washington. Concerned citizens will be informed and involved.
