What is it about conservative organizations that get left-wingers into such a tizzy?
During the last federal election, union boss Buzz Hargrove called my group, the National Citizens Coalition, a “secret society,” and now the Civitas Society is getting the same treatment.
Maybe they think we are all hatching some sort of “hidden agenda.”
Or maybe they don’t like the fact that conservative organizations tend to rely on voluntary contributions and grassroots support.
By contrast, many left-wing organizations subsist on either government subsidies or big union hand outs.
That means conservative groups are more independent, more representative of their members and more likely to come up with good ideas.
