The Grassroots of the Republic vs. Mitch McConnell

Being a libertarian is easy. You can criticize the Republicans and Democrats without any culpability. Being a grassroots Republican is hard. These people work tirelessly, not as paid political operatives, but as actively concerned citizens, fighting for the values and liberties they hold dear.
