The Republican Party has had a tough time in recent elections, but this fall may be a turning point. Sign up for the newsletter on this site to keep up-to-date on what is going on with candidates, key issues, and elections.
Our focus here on this site is to be pro-Republican, not anti-Democrat. I think we all tire of mud-slinging--I know I usually can't wait for elections to be over because I am fed up with the television ads. Our discussions are focused on what is great about the party, what it stands for, and key candidates and elections.
We'll also focus on what some notable Republicans are doing in office. Upcoming topics include Governor Christie from New Jersey, who has taken on some tough battles to try to right-size the state, a state that is losing population and suffers under large tax burdens, especially property taxes. He has also taken on the state unions.
Of course, with the elections this fall, we'll have a lot to talk about. Clearly, Republicans are hoping to take back the majority in the House and the Senate, or at least one of them. That would break the complete majority now held by the Democrats, and perhaps some of the Democrat agenda could be stopped.
Join us also in the forums where we'll discuss the issues as well. Please keep it focused on pro-Republican, not venting against the Democrats. After all, while I do believe that the Democrat's agenda is wrong for our country, that is just my opinion. Let's not make any of it personal, and any posts that are hateful will be removed.
That being said, though, politics can make many of us emotional. I think that can be good because if you care about something, it's likely to spark some emotion. Let's channel that emotion into getting the Republicans running this fall elected into office and move the agenda of self-sufficiency, economic growth, personal freedoms, and smaller government intrusion into our lives forward.
I think that the recent happenings with our national and local governments have woken up the "sleeping giants" of the Republican base! We will not let the Democrats keep the House and Senate this fall.
