EGOPNEWS.COM is an independent website and is not affiliated with any candidate, committee or party.

Our mission is to provide information for better-informed Republicans.

We include links to news sources, conservative and otherwise, because we think it is wise to see the full array of mainstream media reportage. Consider the source. We certainly don't endorse a significant portion of what is seen on our site and we present it only to increase your awareness.

Please note that the links we provide may be changed or invalidated by the source, but most have remained valid for years.

(Some people find it helpful to hold down the Control key while clicking on a link - the link will open in a separate window and egopnews.com will remain open in the previous window.)

Please feel free to email us. We welcome your comments and suggestions. If you see any errors, mistakes or omissions let us know. And thank you for viewing EGOPNEWS.COM
