Volunteers Needed
We would love for you to come and volunteer!
  • Phone banking
  • Literature drops
  • Stuffing envelopes
  • Door to door with our representatives
PA GOP is starting to knock on doors for the Toomey and Trump campaigns. It is a great way to get involved this summer. Recent polling has shown a tight race in Pennsylvania; we can be the tipping point.

Words of Wisdom

"Whether we like it or not, this is the American moment in world history. The American era cannot endure indefinitely, but it can last a lot longer. The spirit of 1776 is taking root around the world; this can happen with us in the lead, or without us. In previous crises there were great Americans who showed leadership, and ordinary Americans who showed commitment and heroism; together, they vindicated the American experiment. So what will be our legacy? Will we keep the flag flying, or will we submit to progressive self-destruction and go down with a whimper? I believe we will prove up to the task of restoration. But in any event, this is our turn at the wheel, and history will judge us based on how we handle it. Decline is a choice, but so is liberty. Let us resolve as Americans to make liberty our choice."  

- Dinesh D'Souza from "America"
