Red State Rebels is a blog dedicated to promoting progressive political thought and action in the "red states" -- those that tend to vote overwhelmingly Republican, especially in the Mountain West.
The Red State Rebel manifesto, version 1.0:
We are progressive and moderate Americans.
We are patriots.
We are committed to our communities.
We have seen the results of one-party government, and we want to bring back real debate.
We will work for meaningful political reform in this country, including campaigns financed mostly by small individual donors.
Our red states may never turn blue, but we aim to end the Republican hegemony of politics.
A disclosure: The founder of this site is organizing for Howard Dean in southern Idaho. But this site is open to everyone who would like to see moderate and progressive thought thrive in the "red states."
