Who We Are
We're not politicians. We're not pundits. We're regular folks who believe in liberty.
Liberty's Torch is the Blog Home of The Conservative Union. This is the place for us to share the articles we write, the interviews we record, the radio shows and hangouts we have.
Why We're Here
The contributors to this blog (as with the whole of The Conservative Union), are a group of individuals committed to restoring freedom worldwide through the growth and expansion of the Conservative movement, using the U.S. Constitution as our guidepost.
How We Started
Before we were co-conspirators in the vast right wing conspiracy, we were friends.
The Conservative Union began as a group of Conservatives from across the United States who found each other on Google+. We shared news and current events, and a mutual concern about the state of our country. Over time, we desired a way for this sharing and mutual frustration to generate some forward motion; to turn the frustration into traction for the road ahead.
The Google+ Communities provided the perfect platform for such an endeavor, and the Conservative Union was created on December 6, 2012. The community grew rapidly. In early March 2013, state and international chapters were established. In the state and international chapters, members discuss state-specific or country-specific issues, organize resources to be more involved in community politics, and establish connections with other Conservatives. April of 2013 saw the rollout of CU Podcasts and community hangouts which serve to further inform and connect Conservatives within the CU.
We launched this blog as a way to share longer form pieces, post our podcasts and hangouts, and generally have a place for our content to live and be shared beyond the walls of Google Plus.
We want to bring in additional writers - on an ad hoc basis, or more regularly. If you'd like to contribute, please contact us!
