Wikipedia defines a Whip in the following way:
"A whip is an official in a political party whose primary purpose is to ensure party discipline in a legislature. Whips are a party's "enforcers", who typically offer inducements and threaten party members to ensure that they vote according to the official party policy. A whip's role is also to ensure that the elected representatives of their party are in attendance when important votes are taken. The usage comes from the hunting term "whipping in", i.e. preventing hounds from wandering away from the pack."
The idea behind what I post in the Liberty blog is very similar, to steer both policy makers and voters towards the path of Liberty, and to remember the essential secular values upon which our Constitution is based.
