    Excellent.  I understand Robert Graham, Chair of the AZ GOP, is behind this video(?).  I tip my hat to him and his team.  I don’t think Graham’s predecessor would have ever thought of an initiative like this, let alone actually doing something about it.
    Kudos to Rev. Bowen, my newest hero among America’s bravest conservative spokespersons.  My only concern is whether the GOP in Washington is worthy of Rev. Bowen.  I’m all but certain that Washingtonian John McCain is not.

      dleeper47 Kudos to Robert Graham for continuing the Repubs of Color concept.
      I met  Reverend Clyde on a very wet Saturday morning at the AZ GOP Chair elections earlier this year. A conversation took place at length with he, three other individuals and myself about the misdirection of the U.S. and the need to remove the powers who are intent on leading us away from constitutionality.

      Imagine that ….two Anglos, two Latinos, and the good Rev. Clyde, all of us in quite varying degrees of age discussing the urgency ( a prayer of sorts) and our mutual deep concerns for correcting the direction of America. 
      The image of the conversation could have made for a lost Norman Rockwell painting. Under the reigning watch of the Almighty, five men sharing the burdens and ideas of taking the individual initiative to immerse ourselves into rescuing what God left to us. 
      I will never forget that mental image.

        Your meeting of 5 sounds like an All-American meeting of the minds on issues that (should) unite us all.
        Contrast that with the Left’s cynical view of the American people as a collection of competing interests and ethnic origins that they can pit against one another for their power and profit. Far from eliminating racism, they are doing their best to re-create and even re-invent it.

      2. rofomoreno dleeper47 I used to attend AAARC meetings. I wonder if they still do potluck…..? Great group!

    2. dleeper47 There isn’t just one GOP. The Party is an aggregated phenomenon of millions, and it is designed to be run by citizens. It can be changed, from within, by people.

    “It takes a while to “get” it” – that the Republican party is looking out for American’s best interests.  “We can spot a phony”  and Obama is it.  Rev King’s dream is not to be realized in my generation that we should judge a man on the content on his character and not the color of his skin.  Skin color is the only critieria for having elected our current president.
