Words of Wisdom

"To many people, even today, high profits are often attributed to high prices charged by those motivated by "greed." In reality, most of the great fortunes in American history have resulted from someone's figuring out how to reduce costs, so as to be able to charge lower prices and therefore gain a mass market for the product. Henry Ford did this with automobiles, Rockefeller with oil, Carnegie with steel, and Sears, Penney, Walton and other department store chain founders with a variety of products." --Thomas Sowell, Economist

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
Staying Informed About Local Issues
A local Republican committee can be most effective if the members stay informed about local township and school district issues.
This can be accomplished by sending representatives from the Republican committee to the council and school board meetings on a regular basis and then asking them to give a short report at the committee meeting.

Periodically, local elected Republican officials should be invited to speak to the committee about current issues and to answer questions.  Since many people cannot attend council and school board meetings on a regular basis, this provides an enticement for people to attend your local committee meeting as well as a means to inform the members about local issues.  It also sends the message to the local officials that the Republican committee members are knowledgeable and informed.
