Better Late Than Never

An interesting article (Building A Rightroots Movement) at Right Wing News about how the web networks between the Left and Right have progressed over the years, and where they currently stand. One interesting suggestion: it's time for the right to do more than passively listen to Right-oriented radio, and become more activist using conservative web sites. Same concept as netroots, without the insanity and foaming at the mouth.

I'm up for it. The Republican Party has been a top-down command model for too long, and is long overdue for some serious turnover in talent and methods. In other words, an internal revolution is warranted to clear out the deadwood, and get competitive again. If you're not changing with the environment, you're a prime candidate to get your ass kicked by someone faster and smarter.

It's time for the party to start reorganizing from the cutting edge and get using modern methods to organize. We're lagging behind the Left , but we can change that. And as the author notes, this will probably grow like a weed if The One gets what he wants.
