President's Message

BURNING THE HOUSE DOWN
The hypocrisy of leftism has always existed, and the Democrat politicians aided by the media have always tried to hide it or excuse it away. No longer. They have openly embraced lawlessness, racism, and anti-American dogma. Their ideology demands that we assume “systemic racism” without inquiry or definition. They venerate skin color above all else and seek to divide our nation. You can kneel and apologize if you like, but they will still burn your house down.   

In fact, after years of being lectured about “micro-aggressions” by the self-appointed elite walking the esteemed halls of academia, we are now witnessing actual aggression. If we were to adopt the leftism playbook of re-defining the English language, we might call it “macro-aggression” or “bash-your-head-in aggression.” The reality is that innocent people are being beaten with boards and bats while businesses are being burned down as the police are vilified and told to stand down. Elected leaders have not only stood by in the face of violent mobs, but they, along with numerous members of the media, have actually encouraged such violence. This is hypocrisy, which is antithetical to justice. Our tax dollars pay for police, fire, and government leaders to do their job – the same job that required the taking of an oath to faithfully execute the laws of the United States of America. It is time for integrity and courage, not cowardice.

Do not be fooled by the current narrative. There is no such thing as “social justice” or “racial justice;” there is only justice and justice must be blind. Reject the self-loathing, racist ideology of the Democrats and vote for Republicans in every election so justice at least has a chance. Remember, we are the party of Lincoln and we have no need to apologize!

May God bless us all,

Breaking News! Jacksonville to Host RNC 2020
Statement By RPOF Chairman Joe Gruters:

“The Republican Party of Florida is delighted that Jacksonville will host the Republican National Convention. The energy and excitement is already building in the Sunshine State for the opportunity to celebrate President Donald J. Trump delivering his acceptance speech.

“The convention will bring visitors and attendees from all across the country to Jacksonville, a beautiful Florida city on the Atlantic Ocean offering hotel space, top-notch convention facilities, beautiful weather, beaches and a lot of Republicans — just an overall outstanding venue. There is no better place to host the Republican National Convention than in the nation’s largest swing state that is also home to President Trump and to the country’s best Governor, Ron DeSantis.

“We thank Governor DeSantis and Lt. Governor Jeanette Nuñez for all their hard work over the last few months in navigating through the COVID-19 outbreak and safely leading the state back to work — which set the stage so perfectly for this opportunity. We also applaud Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry, former Chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, for stepping in quickly and effectively to offer conventioneers the best that Jacksonville has to offer.

“We are particularly grateful to Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel for her leadership and tireless efforts under such difficult circumstances and compressed timeline and we would also like to thank the RNC’s Executive Committee for bringing the 2020 Republican National Convention to Jacksonville. We are thrilled Florida was selected and we will not let them down.

“Florida is committed to holding a safe, secure and successful event and we look forward to delivering the 29 electoral votes that the President needs to win the election.”

2020 Voter Mobilization
Dear Fellow Members and dedicated GOP warriors:

While I am still here in the DC area, I want to do everything to ensure that our Candidates win in November! We need the White House and we need the HOUSE! I am helping Mary Thomas, the Florida Director of CatholicVote , with the important project outlined below.

Every four years it is said, this is the most important election of our lifetimes. This election actually is. With so much at stake for our Nation, we must overcome the challenges that we face, and work to get out the pro-life, pro-faith, and pro-freedom vote.

CatholicVote is an organization that is building the largest Catholic voter mobilization effort program ever. They need your help, so that together we can ensure that, in November, we elect leaders who will safeguard our way of life, our values, and our great Nation.

There is a great opportunity to increase the Catholic vote in 2020. Data shows that 40% or more of churchgoing Catholics in Florida did not vote in 2016 – that’s about 160,000 non-voting Catholics! These are the Catholics most likely to vote their Catholic values of life, family, and freedom. CatholicVote is working throughout Florida to build a grassroots network of committed individuals to help them get out the Catholic vote.

I urge each of you to help CatholicVote in this important effort to protect the sanctity of life, religious freedom, and all of our freedoms. If you are willing to help or if you know of others who may be willing to help, please contact Mary Thomas, at lmthomas@catholicvote.org or 850-524-1007. Or you can contact me at Fondamcg@aol.com or 407-256-8602.

Blessings,
Fonda McGowan
