Conservatism transcends gender, race, sexual orientation and other inherent, unchangeable qualities in any person who subscribes to those values. I am proof of that statement. I am a gay Republican from Texas. I feed on politics and try my best to lend my voice to the conservative movement with my own unique perspective on events â€“ local, national and international. I cannot be pigeonholed into the GOP, - I believe that conservative principles trump any party affiliation. However, I believe that Republicans offer the best hope of securing the vision of our forefathers and the future of our nation. It is up to people like myself to challenge the GOP to do what is in the best interests of this country in furthering the conservative cause while simultaneously opening up to those of us who are the new generation of the grassroots conservatives.
