Words of Wisdom

"...individual property rights are the foundations of moral behavior - the values that bind a community.  Individuals, with full ownership of their life, liberty, and property, judge themselves and care about the positive judgments of others.  This accountability is the moral basis that binds a community, allows for cooperation and enables human prosperity."  

-Matt Kibbe from "Hostile Takeover"

Do You Have President Trump's Back

Since Election Day, the radical left and their allies in the media have been working overtime to viciously attack and undermine President Trump.
 
To put it bluntly: They want to kill our agenda to Make America Great Again!

Our party, President Trump and GOP elected officials will continue to be targeted by paid protestors and radical leftists until we fight back.

We need your help right NOW to fight back. With your help, we will recruit and train a grassroots army of new volunteers committed to defeating the radical left and Making America Great Again.

Will you show that you have President Trump's back by contributing $100, $50, $25 or even $5 today by going to this Link.

Thank you for all that you do to keep our party strong,


Grassroots Tip
 
Soliciting Political Contributions
Most candidates and committee members fear asking others for political contributions.  However, moving out of our comfort zone and asking for monetary donations can be a rewarding experience if we keep the following principles in mind.
 
Why Do People Give?
1. To get access to elected officials.
2. Ego - it makes them feel good.
3. Belief in the candidate or the Republican Party.
4. Fear of the consequences of not giving.
5. To reward candidates or the Republican Party for past performance.
6. Peer pressure.
7. Friendship for a candidate or committee member.
8. To effect public policy.  (This is the reason most people give)
9. Party loyalty.
10. They were asked. (This is the most important reason!)
 
3 Things to Ask of All Potential Donors
1.  Ask for their vote
2. Ask for a monetary contribution
3. Ask for the name of another donor
 
Why Don't People Give?
1. They feel exploited.
2. The appeal is too vague.
3. The appeal is unrealistic.
4. The appeal came from the wrong person.
5. The campaign is not perceived as viable.
6. They were not asked! (This is the most important reason!)

We Have Stakes for Yard Signs
Due to a surplus of stakes being left over from the 2016 elections we currently have a large quantity of these stakes available at the RCAC headquarters. 

We have stakes that will fit both the standard 18 X 24 corrugated plastic signs or the standard 18 X 24 plastic sleeve signs. These will be given out on a first come first serve basis. 

Contact our Executive Director, Ryan Rabea, at 412-458-0068 for more information.
