Former TCCF Trustee Jesse Grier Dead at 85

One of the most faithful friends of the work performed by The Conservative Caucus and The Conservative Caucus Foundation of which he had served as a Trustee was Jesse Grier who died on Christmas Day at the age of 85.

Jesse attended Haverford College and played football for the college. He was a Naval officer in the Pacific theatre, a chemical engineer widely regarded as a genius, worked for Total in Calvert City, Kentucky.

Jesse was active with Take Back Kentucky, the Constitution Party, and as a supporter of Hillsdale College.

He loved the game of golf and was a member of the Calvert City Country Club. He was also a jazz aficionado.

Jesse was a dear and generous friend who will be much missed.

 Presidential Politics | January 3, 2008 | Digg This

The Internet Has Changed Presidential Politics

Congressman Ron Paulís success in receiving some $20 million for his Presidential candidacy primarily via the internet offers future hope for candidates not favored by the mainstream media.

Of course, Ron Paul benefited greatly from his presence in Republican debates and the mean-spirited attack on him by Rudy Giuliani and his response defending his opposition to the war in Iraq.

What this means is that a candidate with strong Constitutional views, if those views are exposed on the mass media to millions of his fellow citizens, is in a position to raise enough funding to mount a serious campaign.
