Congratulations RedState

Congratulations to Redstate on the launching of its new platform. Technology has changed a great deal in politics. Blogs like Redstate provide people across the country an opportunity to express opinions and participate in the debate on important events in real time as never before.

But even the newest and most sophisticated means of communications is not a substitute for the message itself. I can offer no better suggestion than to pursue the core principles that I have found useful over the pasty fifty years: strength in foreign and defense policy, freedom of opportunity for all Americans, a commitment to free markets and free trade, and a disciplined approach to government spending to allow for lower taxes and greater prosperity.

Best wishes to the Redstate community as you use this new venue to convey the important messages of our time.
