I'm so excited to be one of the first bloggers in the entire country to launch a new web site:
Gipper's List is the brainchild of my creative sister, Mary. It's quite simply a "Craig's List for Conservatives." A pro-active protest against the liberals out there who want to take all of your hard-earned money using the power of government. Republican to Republican transactions.
I'm a big Craig's List user...just bought a very cool old set of leather bound encyclopedias for $20 from a woman in Eden Prairie a few weeks ago. I've bought and sold many times and never had a problem except when some crazy chick shopped my kid's clothing sale and stole things.
I also sold a sofa to an artist who lived in Linden Hills. We developed a brief friendship. She had a cute line of handmade children's clothing-- it wasn't cheap stuff, but I appreciated her work. I bought a couple things from her and encouraged her to be more aggressive with her business plan. We met a few times, she wanted some advice on getting her business to the next level. One day the state of the economy came up, she started bashing George Bush and Republicans. She later emailed me to invite me to one of her clothing shows, asking me to bring friends. I politely declined-- why would I help somebody who so hated my political party and what I stood for?
I also sold an armoire to a young couple...when I saw the Army bumper stickers I knocked down the price "Military discount".
This Gipper's List idea is a big one. Finally we have the option to support like-minded individuals who understand that hard work, success and achievement are good things. Who believe in the American Dream and way of life.
I'll be posting a lot more about this website soon....but go check it out!
