I’m many things. I’m a Republican. I’m a political junkie. I’m a blogger. And I’m an avid reader. So it makes complete sense that I love to read Republican blogs! I thought I’d take a few movements and share my favorite Republican blogs with you today. You might have heard of some of these blogs and others might be new to you. Regardless, I hope you take a few moments and check out each of these sites. If you like Republican Views then I’m sure you’ll enjoy reading the following Republican blogs. Enjoy!
Red State is a must-read for every active Republican. The site was founded in 2004 and is led by Editor-in-Chief Erick Erickson. The cool thing about Red State is that ANYONE can participate. Simply register and you’ll be allowed to comment and post your own diaries. Red State has a grass roots feel to it and they definitely get involved in elections by endorsing and supporting conservative candidates. Red State’s three stated goals are to educate, motive, and active Republicans. And they do a great job at all three!
If you’re reading Republican Views then I assume you are familiar with the Drudge Report, but I had to include it because I check it every day! It’s so addicting! The Drudge Report is a news-aggregator site and is known for it’s conservative leanings and simple layout. Matt Drudge simply finds the stories you’ll want to read and then organizes and links to them for your reading pleasure. If you don’t know, Drudge was the guy who broke the Monica Lewinsky story when Newsweek’s editorial board decided not to run it. The Drudge Report gets around 11 billion (yes, that’s billion with a B!) hits a year and is immensely popular. It’s a great site to check out daily.
Yes, believe it or not, there is an official GOP blog. It’s called the Conference Blog and it on the GOP’s official website. I think the GOP blog is great for two reasons. The first reason is that you actually get to hear from the people that matter – the politicians. The majority of the blogosphere and cable news chatter is from pundits who aren’t that important when it comes down to making policy and implementing Republican views in our country. So it’s nice to hear from the actual power class and the decision makers. Politicians sometimes come off as rehearsed and tacky, but their decisions really do matter. I like being able to hear from the politicians themselves. The second reason why I like the Conference Blog is because there are some excellent policy features. The GOP gets bashed for not having their own ideas about climate change and health care, among other things. But that argument is weak and just not true. The Republicans have lots of policy ideas and they can be found on the official GOP blog.
The Daily Paul was started in 2007 to cover Ron Paul’s historic 2008 presidential run. I found the site when I was rooting for Ron Paul during his 2012 run, and I’ve been keeping up with the site ever since. Now, since Ron Paul is no longer an elected politician, you might be wondering what the Daily Paul blogs about each day. They generally cover libertarian stories from the news. Everything from free market talk to peace talk. The Daily Paul is a great place to find the stories that don’t make the main stream media’s nightly news. And they are always posting great videos and highlights from the cable news shows when a libertarian schools some mainstream host. Check out the Daily Paul!
The Roaring Republican is a great resource-hub for all things Republican. They have lists of the top Republican websites, the best conservative podcasts, and the best Republican books. They also have a really cool front page layout that allows you to browse a bunch of their top stories quickly. They cover a lot of the recent NSA news and it’s a great resource for keeping up with that developing story. Checkout the Roaring Republican!
