About Us

The Response Action Network team works every day to ensure that our values are protected. We believe that each of us can make a difference in the political process, and we each have devoted our working lives to that end.

The Response Action Network (RAN) is a special project of Viguerie Political lists, which connects the grassroots to conservative political and advocacy organizations, and campaigns to advance the cause of freedom.  RAN gives you perspective you won’t find anywhere else – because everything we do is backed with decades of hands-on political experience.  We give you a window on the politics and policy affecting our liberties– and a powerful platform to make your voice heard.

You may have heard of Richard Viguerie. He is considered by many to be one of the most innovative tacticians and fundraisers in modern politics.  He has always strongly believed in helping the right candidates reach the right voters, and the right organizations reach the right activists. It is this mission that is at the core of who we are.

Viguerie founded what Viguerie Political Lists is today 50 years ago, and has raised billions of dollars in defense of freedom.  Richard responded to a question from Campaigns & Elections magazine about what his goals are:

To use the Internet to involve Americans in the political process, to help conservatives gain an advantage over the left. To fight against government's use of power, to fight for individual rights and responsibilities. . .

RAN builds on that foundation. We educate. We energize. We connect. And most of all, we listen…to you.

This website is our hub, the place where we share news, ideas, and issue calls to action.

We invite you to join us -- to learn, to share and to take action.



Welcome to the Response Action Network! We're pleased to have you on board.

What are we all about? The Response Action Network is made up of hundreds of thousands of Americans from all walks of life that share a common purpose:

Taking action when our liberties and freedoms are threatened.

We connect you with the biggest issues of the day . . .

  • We expose corruption and waste in government
  • We highlight the issues and policies affecting our constitutional rights
  • And we give you a way to take immediate action.

We do this through our free, weekly newsletter and website. And each week, we strive to give you the information you need to stay informed . . . and get active.

Take Action
On both our website and our newsletter have a "Take Action" section. This is where you can connect directly with the causes, candidates, and issues you care about most.

Each article that you see in the newsletter first appears on our site. Below each article there is a comment section where you can tell us what you think! You can leave comments using your Facebook account.
Email Preferences
We want you to be able to connect with the causes, issues, and candidates that you support. We will bring you regular messages from candidates and organizations. We may not always agree with the positions and messages of our advertisers, but the power to decide is in your hands.

This link will take you to the preference center, where you will be able to customize your email settings. If you uncheck any of the categories on this page, you will no longer receive that type of message.
