From state senator Chris McDaniel’s release:

History will record 2014 as a pivotal year for the conservative movement. The establishment has demonstrated their true colors, betraying our principles and the base of our party to win at any cost.

With a new year dawning, one thing is evident: Republicans may control the legislative branch, but they lack principled leadership.

Whether by race-baiting and party-raiding shenanigans in Mississippi, passing a bloated 1,600-page “CROmnibus” funding bill or punishing conservative leaders who dare to challenge the status-quo of ever-expanding government, liberty-based conservatives have faced hostility from “establishment” members of the GOP.

But there is hope.

Grassroots conservatives are organizing all across the country, particularly in Mississippi. “Remember Mississippi” has become a rallying cry, as thousands of our friends are working to make a real difference.

And we must prevail.

We will organize, strengthen our ranks, learn to message and win; or the DC establishment will ridicule us into silence, submission and surrender.

Either way, one thing’s for sure: nothing will ever be the same.

Our battle is not simply one against the Democrats; we must defeat an ideology. The Republican party must become a party of principle, not simply a network of lobbyists, string-pullers and elitists.

In the coming days, we will be making a major announcement. We will be asking you to join us as we begin our march to heal our republic.

It’s time to unify, friends.
