The Friday Line: Ten Republicans To Watch

In the spirit of GOP renewal, here’s Chris Cillizza’s top picks.  There are names any avid politico will will recognize like Lousiana governor Bobby Jindal and former presidential candidate & Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney but Cillizza has also included a couple of lesser known’s like Steve Poizner and John Huntsman Jr.  I’m encouraged by a couple of these choices and I highly recommend taking a look at Mr. Cillizza’s list.  I’ll leave you with one quote from Mister #6, Mark Sanford, South Carolina governor and newly elected chair of the Republican Governor’s Association.

“Some on the left will say our electoral losses are a repudiation of our principles of lower taxes, smaller government and individual liberty,” wrote Sanford in an op-ed piece for “But Tuesday was not in fact a rejection of those principles — it was a rejection of Republicans’ failure to live up to those principles.”

This next generation of Republicans just might get it!

“These are the times that try men’s souls.  The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.  Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.  What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives every thing its value.  Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated.”

Thomas Paine

In these days following our presidential election, I will seek to be a part of the renewal that needs to take place within the Conservative movement.
