There's a problem for President Obama's Nobel Peace Prize victory and it's not his inexperience. From Article I, Section 9 of "that neglected curio," the U.S. Constitution:
"No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any… Continue

To the members of REAL CONSERVATIVES:
As you know, this site is dedicated to only one objective-getting as many of the VAST, Conservative, Silent Majority to do their civic duty on the only day that matters, ELECTION DAY, 2010. Nothing else matters at this point in our nations history.
To that end, this site provides capability for postings of photos and videos with relevant content and commentary from you, the members. Members should also post notice of the various events they organize or participate in. There is also Group Formation, Discussion and Chat capability for on-line gatherings.
Isn't it wonderful that the Founders gave us our Bill of Rights, that we may freely communicate
I have tried to provide printable content on contemporary issues for the use of the members as they see fitting, and each of your comments on the various issues would be greatly encouraged, needed, and acknowledged. This provides the needed feedback for future forums.
Very important is the mass distribution of the "Declaration of the Independents" by July 4 2010. Politicians need to be PUT ON NOTICE that their corrupt ways will no longer be tolerated by the voting population of this country. It is a generic document, re-producible, and mentions no particular political party. It is for all Americans, regardless of their political affiliations.
So, please take some time to review the content provided and respond in the various reply sections, at your convenience. This would be greatly appreciated.
NOTE: YOUR EXCELLENT BLOG SUBMISSION SHOULD BE COPIED AND PASTED AS YOUR FIRST DISCUSSION WHEN YOU START YOUR GROUP FROM YOUR “MY PAGE” SECTION ON THIS SITE!
Subject: FORMATION OF LOCALIZED GROUPS
FORMATION OF CIVIC GROUPS, FROM YOUR LOCAL OR YOUR PERSONAL CONTACTS, ON THIS SITE ARE ENCOURAGED, TO STIMULATE CIVIC VIGILANCE WHERE IT COUNTS - AT THE GRASSROOTS.
Therefore, you are urged to work independently, on the local voting district level, to effect the necessary policies of politicians who depend on you, the VOTING CITIZEN, to hire them to represent your views from the offices to which they aspire to be elected. There is strength in numbers and therefore, the more voting citizens you bring into your group, the more powerfully your voice will be heard. You may even want to consider running yourself.
THOUGH WE ARE ALL AMERICANS, WITH A COMMON HERITAGE, INVITATIONS TO OTHER EXISTING MEMBERS ON THIS SITE ARE STRONGLY DISCOURAGED BECAUSE IT RESULTS IN THE WATERING DOWN OF ANY EFFECTIVENESS YOU COULD HAVE ACHIEVED ON A PERSONAL, LOCAL LEVEL, FROM WITHIN YOUR OWN CIRCLES, IN YOUR OWN VOTING DISTRICTS WHERE A SHOW OF STRENGTH COUNTS THE MOST, PARTICULARLY BEFORE THE NEXT ELECTION CYCLE.
Encourage those of your friends, who may live in other States, to join REAL CONSERVATIVES and then form their own, local groups on THIS SITE, AND, BY ALL MEANS, ADD YOUR FRIENDS TO YOUR “FRIENDS LIST” REGARDLESS OF THE FACT THEY MAY LIVE IN ANOTHER STATE. USE YOUR FORMED GROUP TO RECRUIT FRESH, LOCAL VOTERS TO THE CONSERVATIVE CAUSE.
You can also chat with any other members, anywhere, in the chat room provided.
EACH OF YOU HAS BEEN PROVIDED WITH YOUR OWN PAGE, AND FROM THAT PAGE YOU SHOULD FORM YOUR OWN GROUPS, LOCALLY. This is the realistic way of restoring and instilling CONSERVATIVE VALUES to, and in, your elected officials, wherever they serve, either on the local, county, State, or Congressional and Senatorial level. Make THEM accountable to YOU.
Noone has any influence on a candidate in another state, because you are not one of their potential, voting constituents. The next election cycle is all local. There are no national candidates. We need to send more REAL Conservatives to D.C. in 2010...very VITAL.
Congratulations on joining REAL CONSERVATIVES. Good luck, and Godspeed.
God Bless America
Your Uncle Sam
