Words of Wisdom

[A single-payer government health care system] means that unscrupulous government bureaucrats would have vital information about any individual to use as blackmail against political opponents. This is the basis not only for a socialist state but for a totalitarian one in which every individual is at the mercy of the rulers."   --David Horowitz from "Big Agenda"

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
Committee Members Are the Face of the Republican Party
A GOP committee member is the face of the Republican Party to grassroots voters. Consequently, a committee member is often in a position to help constituents. For example, if someone has a problem or complaint or needs information, make it a point to fnd out how you and the Republican Party can be helpful. People will remember your helpfulness. After you have helped a voter, don't be afraid to ask that voter for help or a vote when you need it. The nature of our work is to be involved and to interact with members of our community. Keep abreast of the issues and concerns of your community and be sure that the candidates and officials are aware of them. Also, be sure that your community understands the concerns of the GOP candidates and officials as well. We must be model citizens.
