Kentucky NEEDS Matt Bevin!

matt and jenean2-top

It was recently brought to my attention on twitter that I haven’t updated my blog in TWO YEARS!!! I certainly didn’t need a liberal attorney for the Governor of Kentucky to bring this to my attention! After all we’ve experienced with the current administration in D.C. with one scandal after another one it was just happening too quick for me to keep up while maintaining a full time job. This year however something spectacular has taken place that has broken down the blocks that I’ve experienced as a writer. As most of my readers know I am a registered nurse here in Kentucky and in January I had surgery that soon led to needing three more, it was during my recovery that I found out that we have a conservative, prolife, veteran, pro gun, pro family candidate seeking the nomination to run as our next governor. His name is Matt Bevin and I should add that it was his running mate Jenean Hampton that caught my attention as I watched the Lieutenant Governor’s debate that I was drawn into learning more about the campaign!

It is my honor to officially endorse Matt Bevin and Jenean Hampton as our next Governor and Lieutenant Governor of the great Commonwealth of Kentucky! It was after a history making primary that I am able to make this endorsement. The primary was definitely a nail biter as it came down to an 83 vote difference between Bevin’s and challenger James Comer and after a re canvassing the votes were still in Bevin’s favor and Comer graciously conceded and offered as did the others seeking the nomination to offer his full support in seeing that the Bevin-Hampton team goes to Frankfort in November.

In November Bevin will be going up against Jack Conway who is currently our Attorney General. Bevin has outlined his blueprint for a better Kentucky which covers:

Enact pro-business “Right To Work” legislation, Modernize Kentucky’s tax code, Resolving our pension crisis, Reforming Kentucky government, modernize Kentucky’s education system, improving Kentucky healthcare, fighting Federal government overreach

I invite you all to visit MATTBEVIN.COM/PLAN to learn more about his blueprint for a better Kentucky. We need MATT BEVIN as he is calling for unity and when you visit his site you will see the following quote that I feel the need to share as it shows you the character of the man that Kentucky so needs at this time in history.

“Jenean and I have both been blessed to come from humble beginnings and to live the American Dream.

The attributes that have long defined our great Commonwealth are trust in God, love of liberty, rugged self-reliance and a willingness to work hard. These are the traits that have forged Kentucky’s character…The very character that led to the creation of a state flag that shows a pioneer and a statesman shaking hands, surrounded by the admonition that, ‘United We Stand, Divided We Fall’.

We must indeed be united. One people. One Kentucky. Our future success depends on it.

And don’t doubt for one moment, that with a strong and united effort, a bright future awaits us…Now is the time to seize it!

If elected to serve, our administration will strive each day to ensure that every Kentuckian has a chance to achieve their own American Dream.”

Be sure and check back as I will have much more to say as this race heats up over the summer!! Don’t forget when you visit the website to hit that DONATE tab and donate whatever you can whether it be $11.00 $3.00 or $15.00 We need your help to bring conservative values and principles back to Kentucky! (11-3-15 is election day)

The Patriotic Nurse is Back!!!

It has been sometime since I’ve updated this blog. Partly out of frustration over the way our country is being dismantled and how the GOP has failed numerous times to rectify the problems that plague the party today. As most of you know I am a Registered nurse who is employed in the hospital setting, with Obamacare quickly coming to fruition it has also hindered me in my writing. Within a one year period the units I was working on were closed and we were shuffled throughout the hospital. That has been very stressful as well, not knowing if our jobs were secure or not. The economy and housing market has also been a key issue with my inability to update. This past November I finally closed on the sale of my home that was in a dire state, the foundation had serious issues and I was unable to lock doors, windows wouldn’t close nor was the plumbing working. After several attempts to secure a loan to do the repairs needed, which exceeded seventy thousand dollars I was unsuccessful due to the market and the house not appraising for what I needed. On advisement of my attorney I walked away from the house and proceeded with a short sale which in itself was stressful enough. I am now living in a rental and life has finally stabilized somewhat!

It was in the beginning of this blog my intentions to scrutinize the Obama administration, I am appalled by his reckless over reach of power and his blatant disregard for our constitution. With his successful bid to win back the White House his second term has been mired by one scandal after another. It has been difficult to say the least with my hectic schedule and the demands of life in general to be able stay on top of these scandals and offer my opinions regarding them. It is my hope that now that things have somewhat stabilized that I can update more often. I appreciate all of you that have subscribed and it is my hope that readers who have stopped visiting will once again return and share your thoughts and ideas via comments.

I don’t recognize America anymore and I refuse to remain silent, to sit back and do nothing as this country is being transformed before our very eyes. Many years ago our founders were subjected to tyranny and through their blood, sweat and determination created the America we once knew. It is our duty to protect and defend at all cost. I hope that you will join me. God bless America………..

State of the Union February 2, 2013

This Year, 2013, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address will occur on the same day.

This is an ironic juxtaposition of events. One involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to an insignificant creature of little intelligence for prognostication.

The other involves a groundhog

This is going to be a long four years……sighs…

ABC News Blatantly Dismissive Regarding Benghazi

I recently received an email from the founder and president of The Media Research Center, L. Brent Bozell III regarding the coverage or lack there of regarding the events that transpired in Benghazi September 11, 2012. I feel compelled to share this with my readers.

… ABC World News gave a dismissive 20 seconds of lip service to a blockbuster report that revealed State Department emails showing that the White House knew on September 11 that the Benghazi consulate attack was a terrorist attack.

The emails documented that within two hours of the attack, the State Department had told the Obama administration that an Islamic militant group had claimed credit for this terrorist attack. The revelation proves that President Obama and his spokesmen repeatedly lied to the American people. For days, falsely claiming it was a “video.”

The story broke Tuesday night on CBS Evening News. Since then, according to a Media ResearchCenter analysis, ABC has almost completely refused to report the email evidence, giving it a scant 25 seconds on Good Morning America and 20 seconds on World News yesterday.

Good Morning America skipped the story entirely this morning, but did commit nearly 2 minutes to the capture of a monkey in Florida.

In response, I just released the following public statement.

“Every other broadcast news network has produced at least one major story on the release of emails related to the attack in Benghazi that killed our ambassador and three other brave Americans. While not enough, in some cases, it’s something. From ABC News, it’s nothing.

“ABC is aiding and abetting the Obama administration’s cover-up of their deceitful response to the Benghazi terrorist attack. There is no bigger story than Obama’s Benghazi lie, and ABC, a so-called “news network”, has absolutely no excuse for hiding the truth from the American people.

“The questions are simple: what did President Obama know? And when did he know it? These emails prove that either Obama knew it was a terrorist attack and lied about it for weeks, or his administration is historically incompetent. Either way, it’s major news and demands more than mere seconds of total coverage from one of the three major broadcast networks

“ABC has been shielding Obama from the Benghazi fallout for weeks in order to help him win re-election, but the American people see right through it. Their corruption is as obvious as it is unforgiveable.”…..

2016 Can We Afford Obama’s America?

But you see, a rich country like America can perhaps afford to be stupid.

The above quote is taken from Dreams From My Father. The book he published in 1995 as he began his political career. Five years prior, he had been elected the first African-American President of Harvard’s Law review, the book was re-published in 2004 two weeks after Obama gave the keynote address at the DNC convention which launched him to where he sits today.

When 2016 Obama’s America opened I knew I had take my parents to see Dinesh D’Souza’s eye-opening documentary 2016 Obama’s America, a movie that every person who is considering voting in the upcoming Presidential election should see. On the outside the premise appears to be anti-Obama however, it gives a clear insight as to who the man really is and from where he is from and the people that helped mold the man who now resides as our 44th President. D’Souza has managed to delve into his past and do the job that the media has failed to do.

We see Barack Obama as a man who is still seeking approval from a father he barely knew, a pain that was evident by seeing the reenactment of Barack at the grave of his father. We get a glimpse into how he was raised and shipped from continent to continent and a glimpse of the men who filled the void of an absentee father. Men like Frank Davis, Bill Ayers, Edward Said, Jeremiah Wright and Roberto Unger. All controversial men in their own right. Each of them shaping and molding Obama’s Marxist ideologies.

If reelected to another four years it is likely that Obama will only continue to dismantle America that he views as “too rich” and “too powerful” in the world today. It is evident by his refusing the Keystone pipe line which would have created jobs that are so desperately needed. His desire to weaken our military and reduce the number of arms we have have to protect ourselves. Obama Sr. had the mindset that we should be taxed at 100% and that it was the government who would give us what “they” deemed necessary for us to live and get by.

For America to survive it is imperative that we reign in those bent on her destruction and elect those who vow to govern by the principles set forth by our Founding Father’s and not of those of Obama’s. As Dinesh so poignantly stated near the end of the documentary that it is up to …YOU

Disenfranchised by the GOP

“A share in the sovereignty of the state, which is exercised by the citizens at large, in voting at elections is one of the most important rights of the subject, and in a republic ought to stand foremost in the estimation of the law. “ Alexander Hamilton

It is the intent of this article to put the GOP and Reince Priebus on notice! From the very beginning of this primary season it has been obvious to many conservatives that the establishment and the media has been determined to make Mitt Romney the nominee of the Republican Party in the attempt to indeed make Obama a one term President. In doing so they have actually disenfranchised many of us who have yet to vote in our state’s primaries. Romney now the “presumptive nominee” will most likely result in lower voter turn out in states that have yet held their primary. Indiana, North Carolina, West Virginia, Nebraska, Oregon, Arkansas, Kentucky and Texas hold their primaries in May. June has California, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, South Dakota and Utah.

Sadly not everyone in those states are as politically active and rely on sound-bytes from their local news or via political commercials shown in their areas. With the recent hype surrounding Romney’s inevitable victory many may simply stay at home and not cast their votes for the candidates of their choice. Rumors on the social media site Twitter has it that Romney’s PAC is making robo calls in states declaring that certain candidates are no longer running. Suspending one’s campaign does not take them entirely out of the running. However, to the uninformed person this could simply make the person think why bother and stay at home. This folks is disenfranchising.

Recently I received a call from the RNC requesting a hundred dollars or more to defeat Obama, the caller reading no doubt from a script made the argument that Obama has a billion dollars at his disposal to campaign against our nominee. I had the caller stuttering when I denounced his claim and called his bluff by saying that was mere spin and that Obama did not have the billion dollars that has been speculated.

I am well aware that it is imperative we unseat the current occupier-in-chief from office, however, it is disingenuous of the GOP to thwart our rights as Americans to express ourselves and have our votes count. The saving grace for those of us that feel disenfranchised by the GOP is two fold; one we can show our discontent by sitting on our wallets and two we can hold them accountable if in fact Romney fails and we are left with four more years of the tyranny we experienced. Recently I read Screw the GOP, They Don’t Seem to Want My Vote Anyway I am not a Johnson supporter, nor do I know a lot about the man but the sentiment of the article I do share.

Romney is just the last straw for me. I can’t really say for certain what I agree with him on or exactly how he differs from how Obama has been governing (as George Soros said, “If it’s between Obama and Romney, there isn’t all that much difference except for the crowd that they bring with them”)


When the Media is Absent, We The People Will Remember Our Troops

Today being Monday I thought I’d renew a tradition I had started a few years ago. As most of you on Twitter knows on Monday we pay special tribute to our men and women serving our country in various branches of our Military. I received an email yesterday that rekindled my desire for another tribute to our troops. It spoke volumes of how as we as a society have digressed. I ask each of you that reads the names of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice; that you remember them and their families in your thoughts and prayers…The email:

Tea Party co-opted? ….Newt Gingrich For President

Part of why the Tea Party so deeply threatened the elite media is the tea party looked around and suddenly realized, there are more of us than there are of them.Gingrich

Do you remember the Tea Party? I do..we rallied around the concept of smaller government, less taxes, less intrusion of the government in our daily lives. We met in cities from coast to coast…north, south, east and west to have our voices heard at the local level; a grassroots movement had arisen. We became vocal, holding our candidates, elected officials accountable. With social sites such as Twitter and Facebook we bantered together and marched on Washington in September of 2009 showing our unity, our cause, our strengths as the “New Age Patriots.”

However, today as we are trying to rectify the wrongs of the Obama administration it seems as though we’ve become somewhat disengaged from our initial intent. We have Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich all vying for the nomination of the Republican Party for President, each one claiming to be the “true conservative” to represent us. But I have to wonder if we are so desperate to replace Obama that we are willing to put aside our conservative values and choose one who is least conservative as is Romney with his history of flip flops on many issues we face today. It is the elite media and the establishment within the Republican party that has shoved Romney upon us. If he truly was resonating with the people he would have far larger the support than he does but still after spending millions of dollars he has yet to grasp the support of many conservatives. Many doubt his ability to stand up against Obama who will have far greater resources at hand to go toe to toe with him. Recently Newt Gingrich on Face the Nation spoke of the breathtaking scale of dishonesty why Romney hasn’t won. [h/t The rightscoop ]

One has to wonder why those who are migrating towards Romney and claim to be connected with the Tea Party could overlook his governing record:

Defining mistake: supported abortion law despite opposing it. (Aug 2007)
Would welcome overturning Roe v. Wade. (Mar 2007)
Committed to not change law on abortion as Gov., and did not. (Mar 2007)
Opposes Roe v Wade, but won’t tamper with abortion laws. (Dec 2006)
Vetoed emergency contraception for rape victims. (Jul 2005)
Vetoed stem cell research bill. (May 2005)
Endorsed legalization of RU-486. (Mar 2002)

Rick Santorum is claiming he is the true conservative in this race as well but he too, has a problem with spending. Big spending! He is actually proud of his earmarks. “Politics is a team sport folks.” He endorsed Arlen Specter who was the deciding vote on Obama’s disastrous health care reform. Not only did he endorse but he sent money as well, to the tune of $5,000 but the money was returned after Specter switched parties. But clearly one has to wonder where his conservative heart was in this decision. We’ve heard Santorum’s hard stance on public sector unions but his record reveals otherwise:

1. On June 15th1993, Rick Santorum voted for Cesar Chavez Workplace Fairness Act (HR 5) which prohibits employers from hiring permanent replacements when employees strike over wages or benefits.
2. In the 104th Congress Sen. Santorum joined all Democrats and a minority of Republicans in voting to filibuster the bill S. 1788, the National Right to Work Act of 1995. (“On the Cloture Motion (motion to invoke cloture on motion to proceed to consider S.1788),” Senate Bill Clerk, Vote Number: 188,, 7/10/1996)
3. During that same congressional session, Santorum also voted to retain the 1930s-era Davis-Bacon Act that forces taxpayers to pay union wages in government-funded construction and gives Big Labor an unfair advantage over non-union companies and workers (“On the Motion to Table (motion to table Kennedy Amendment No. 4031 to S.Amdt. 4000 to S.Con.Res. 57),” Senate Bill Clerk, Vote Number: 134,, 5/22/1996)
4. He also voted against allowing a waiver of Davis-Bacon in emergency situations.
5. Has flipped flopped on his positions regarding unions. He routinely supported them but then abandoned them as soon as he started running for President.
6. He also voted for Alexis Herman in which she was appointed by Bill Clinton to be Secretary of Labor.
7. He voted for a law to require a union representative on an IRS oversight board and also voted to exempt IRS union representative from criminal ethics laws. He also voted against creating independent Board of Governors to investigate IRS abuses.
8. He voted twice for the Teamwork for Employees and Managers Act of 1995 (HR 743 & S Amdt 4438) which amends the National Labor Relations Act of 1935 to allow employers to form labor-management cooperative organizations with employees without the presence of a union.
9. He also voted twice for the Federal Aviation Reauthorization Act of 1996 which would have forced Fedex to accept local unions (H.R. 3539)

Does this sound like someone who really is in line with the Tea Party? One article that I read while writing this post seemed to think that a Santorum Presidency would crash and burn the Tea Party stating:

The most remarkable thing of all about the Republican’s “anointed one”, is his strange ideas of fiscal responsibility and tax reform. According to the non-partisan Tax Policy Center, Santorum’s proposals would actually exacerbate the very deficits that he so vociferously decries. It is estimated that $1.5 trillion would be added to the national debt after Santorum’s third year in office. This is a very poor proposition by any standard. In essence, the nomination of Rick Santorum as Republican standard bearer in 2012 will most likely result in the final demise of the “Tea Party’s” influence on American politics. This may be the only good news that the elections of 2012 will bring for the majority of the moderate thinking, Republican base.

I have laid out to you why I feel Newt Gingrich is the one who is most credible and worthy of the office of the President. I made the claim that Newt The Logical Most Responsible Choice 2012 and that Newt…Bold Ideas..Strong Leadership…One That is Proven.. Now let me share with you Newt’s credentials:

As a congressman, Gingrich was a Reagan Coalition member and Reagan Revolution fighter. As Speaker, he led the Republicans to their first House majority in over 40 years and the GOP finally broke the New Deal coalition that had dominated American politics for more than a half-century, moving policy substantially to the right for our nation. We all benefited as a result. This Reagan, Gingrich, Republican majority-aligned coalition also directly led to the eventual downfall of the Soviet Union.

As Speaker, he allied himself with Ronald Reagan to build the Reagan Coalition, the Religious Right and led his new Republican majority (the Republican Revolution) to pass the Contract with America, cut the deficit, cut taxes, reformed welfare, blocked Clinton’s agenda including HillaryCare, balanced the budget four years running, and extended the great, long-standing Reagan economy throughout the nineties. By comparison, Romney, a one-term MA Governor, vehemently denied Reagan; aligned himself with Ted Kennedy; and lost the most legislative seats for Republicans in MA since the Civil War.

Gingrich’s pro-life voting record is sterling at 98.6%, 70 out of 71 votes, and twice helped pass the end of partial-birth abortion in Congress, before Clinton vetoed it; a true encouragement for anyone who cares about babies being protected in the womb. His lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union rings in at 90%. And the National Taxpayers Union’s Annual Scorecard on reduced spending and taxes gave Gingrich an “A”, for his last four years in office, ranking him #1, #4, #2 and #11 and as one of the most conservative members in Congress for the Republican party.

Of all candidates, Gingrich’s record “stands alone” in his policy achievements and successful leadership portfolio. During his Speakership, a blistering 11 million jobs were created (nearly 3 million per year), $400 billion in debt was paid off, 60% of welfare rolls were reduced, and taxes were cut for the first time in sixteen years – including the largest capital gains tax in history. That’s an immovable fact. Taken together, as a Reagan conservative, Gingrich has already proven his high office credentials as U.S. House speaker.

Gingrich’s 21st Century nine-point “Jobs and Prosperity Plan” borrows a page from Reagan’s 1980 economic platform. It is not just Reaganesque, it is Reaganomics, cryogenically frozen in 1981, thawed 30 years later, and pumped full of Newt-style steroids in order to save the American people from our nations slow systemic job growth. The pro-growth, pro-job, economic recovery plan features massive tax cuts, less government spending (through privatization of entitlement programs), interest-rate hikes, and rampant deregulation.

Gingrich, who blames excessive regulation for the 2008 financial crisis, also wants to advance Reaganomics by repealing the Dodd-Frank and Sarbanes-Oxley laws governing the financial sector. He would reorient the Federal Reserve entirely toward taming inflation, axing the pursuit of full employment from its congressional mandate. He would cut spending by fundamentally restructuring safety-net programs, turning Medicaid into block grants to states and allowing Americans to opt into privatized accounts for Medicare and Social Security, eventually phasing out payroll taxes in the process.

The foundation is classic supply-side, trickle-down, Laffer-curve economics, which Gingrich’s economic advisers predict will unleash a Reagan-like boom that will eventually generate enough tax revenue to balance the federal budget. Gingrich calls for a Balanced Budget Amendment; and would move to zero-based budgeting, where every dollar must be justified domestically and in foreign aid; and his plan outlines how he’ll cut government waste, inefficiency and duplication all across the board. Notably, anyone planning to introduce ‘Lean Six Sigma’ into government is serious about slicing the bureaucracy.

Finally, no other candidate has listed a Day One Plan. As part of his 21st Century Contract with America, Gingrich has pledged to issue a series of Executive Orders to create jobs and help undo the damage of the Obama administration on the first day of his administration. Altogether, one could reasonably expect a President Gingrich to lead America in a pro-growth, limited government direction who understands the significance of the founding principle that we were created equal by our Creator (God) and endowed with certain unalienable rights.

[ h/t @KLSouth ]

This morning while listening to Newt speak I was moved by message he conveyed to a large crowd before him.

“Callista and I didn’t come here today to ask you to help us we came to ask you to help America”

Let’s help America by sending the one man who can stand up against Obama, one with the intellect, the strength and the fortitude to restore America once again to the oval office. That folks is why I am … #withNewt

Newt The Logical Most Responsible Choice 2012

“I believe we are now in a struggle over whether or not we are going to save America.”

This has been an ongoing message relayed by Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, a message that everyone should take heed. However, the media and with their deliberate bias against Gingrich continue to underestimate him. This morning on Fox and Friends I was appalled how they spoke of the recent Arizona debate. Touting Romney as the winner, with Santorum coming in second and with little to no mention of Newt. Hey Steve, Gretchen and Brian…just what debate did you watch?? What I saw in the debate were two who went at each other like school boys out on the playground. It was Newt who focused on the issues we face such as the energy crises we face; it was Newt who called out John King when the question arose once again about contraception how the media in 2008 never once questioned Obama regarding his vote to support infanticide and partial birth abortions. It wasn’t Romney who claims to be the businessman with such a great “conservative record” who focused on the energy crises nor was it Santorum who is so passionate about the sanctity of life that made mention of Obama’s egregious support of this barbaric procedures that end life. NO, it was Newt, the man with bold plans, a proven record of being an effective leader. I do believe it was Eric Erickson who said it best when he wrote that “Newt was the adult in the room.”

Just days after the Arizona debate Politico reported:

that during Wednesday night’s debate in Phoenix, the #1 increase in Google Search candidate keywords in Arizona was Newt Gingrich, with a 120% increase. Rick Santorum and Ron Paul each got a 50% bounce, while Mitt Romney only showed a 5% increase.

Ditto candidate search trends Nationally, with Gingrich enjoying an 84% bump, Santorum with 50%, Paul with 30% and Romney again pulling up the rear with 25%.

Once more the media fails to realize that we have woken up, no longer are we going to be dictated by them or the establishment which candidate to support. The tea party movement and this is my opinion has been co-opted in many ways and frankly I don’t understand their support of Romney given his moderate, left leaning tendencies. His record alone as Governor proves this. Throw in his many flip flops of the issues and it’s clear that he is pandering to who ever will subscribe to his rhetoric.

It’s clearly evident that Newt has bold ideas..ready to tackle day one the many issues facing this country due to the poor inept leadership by the “occupier-in-chief.” With gas being in the limelight as the prices begin to skyrocket, let’s review for a moment Newt’s American energy plan:

1. Remove bureaucratic and legal obstacles to responsible oil and natural gas development in the United States, offshore and on land.
2. End the ban on oil shale development in the American West, where we have three times the amount of oil as Saudi Arabia.
3. Give coastal states federal royalty revenue sharing to give them an incentive to allow offshore development.
4. Reduce frivolous lawsuits that hold up energy production by enacting loser pays laws to force the losers in an environmental lawsuit to pay all legal costs for the other side.
5. Finance cleaner energy research and projects with new oil and gas royalties.
6. Replace the Environmental Protection Agency, which has become a job-killing regulatory engine of higher energy prices, with an Environmental Solutions Agency that would use incentives and work cooperatively with local government and industry to achieve better environmental outcomes while considering the impact of federal environmental policies on job creation and the cost of energy.

Jobs is another issue that remains on the minds of many Americans. Newt is correct when he states; “America only works when Americans are working.” Let’s look at The Gingrich Jobs and Growth Plan:

1. Stop the 2013 tax increases to promote stability in the economy. Job creation improved after Congress extended tax relief for two years in December. We should make the rates permanent.
2. Make the United States the most desirable location for new business investment through a bold series of tax cuts, including: Eliminating the capital gains tax to make American entrepreneurs more competitive against those in other countries; Dramatically reducing the corporate income tax (among highest in the world) to 12.5%; Allowing for 100% expensing of new equipment to spur innovation and American manufacturing; Ending the death tax permanently.
3. Move toward an optional flat tax of 15% that would allow Americans the freedom to choose to file their taxes on a postcard, saving hundreds of billions in unnecessary costs each year. This optional flat tax system will preserve deductions on charitable giving and home ownership, and create a new personal deduction of $12,000 for every American. This deduction is well above the current poverty level, ensuring that this new system does not unfairly target the poor.
4. Strengthen the dollar by returning to the Reagan-era monetary policies that stopped runaway inflation and reforming the Federal Reserve to promote transparency.
5. Remove obstacles to job creation imposed by destructive and ineffective regulations, programs and bureaucracies. Steps include: Repealing the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which did nothing to prevent the financial crisis and is holding companies back from making new investments in the U.S; Repealing the Community Reinvestment Act, the abuse of which helped cause the financial crisis; Repealing the Dodd-Frank Law which is killing small independent banks, crippling loans to small businesses and crippling home sales; Breaking up Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, moving their smaller successors off government guarantees and into the free market; Replacing the Environmental Protection Agency with an Environmental Solutions Agency that works collaboratively with local government and industry to achieve better results; and Modernizing the Food and Drug Administration to get lifesaving medicines and technologies to patients faster.
6. Implement an American energy policy that removes obstacles to responsible energy development and creates jobs in the United States.
7. Balance the budget by growing the economy, controlling spending, implementing money saving reforms, and replacing destructive policies and regulatory agencies with new approaches.
8. Repeal and replace Obamacare with a pro-jobs, pro-responsibility health plan that puts doctors and patients in charge of health decisions instead of bureaucrats.
9. Fundamental reform of entitlement programs with the advice and help of the American people. Read an extended white paper on this here.

I challenge all of my readers to visit Newt2012 do your homework, study the plans as Newt puts them forth. He is a proven leader, one who has the best ability to take on Obama come November. It is Newt that can once again make America’s beacon shine ever so brightly for freedoms, justice and liberty for all. I challenge you to donate what you can whether it be with cash or your time. As Newt so frequently has stated This is the most crucial elections of our lifetime.

The Gipper is saluting Newt and giving his approval…will you be #withNewt

Newt…Bold Ideas..Strong Leadership…One That is Proven..

“If you’re not brave, you’re not going to be free.”

The year was 1994 and Newt Gingrich, with his Contract for America led the Republican Party to a resounding victory by capturing the majority in the United States House of Representatives… a feat that hadn’t been done in forty years! Dare I say Bold… His leadership abilities attributed to Congress passing a balanced budget re-paying $400 billion in debt. It was Newt who brought us welfare reform, enabling people to get off welfare and find work or return to school and who restored the funding to build up our military and enhance our intelligence. To which after the events of 9-11 became very useful. I find the quote by Time magazine in 1995 to be relevant today…

“Leaders make things possible. Exceptional leaders make them inevitable. Newt Gingrich belongs in the category of the exceptional.

Today in 2012 Newt continues to display strong leadership, one who is embolden with bold ideas to restore America to once again resemble the America that Reagan so loved and to make her beacon shine ever so bright for freedom, liberty and justice for all.

I am dismayed by the way in which the Speaker has been treated, not only by those within the establishment of the GOP but by the so called political pundits who are clearly motivated by making names for themselves with little regard to how the American people feel. We have seen the same biased reporting from the media as well. They have been resilient in shoving Mitt Romney down our throats…supporting one who is more moderate with left leaning tendencies than one who has proven to be a leader. Now their spot light is on Rick Santorum, elevating him to sainthood … We have a proven leader in Newt Gingrich…but apparently we didn’t learn our lesson in 2008. We can’t afford a repeat performance and must ensure that we get a true, proven conservative or we face the uncertainty we face today to linger for yet another four years..Are you sure we can afford that?

Newt now has moved his Contract with America to the 21st century proposing:

A set of legislative proposals to shift America back to job creation, prosperity, freedom, and safety.
A “Day One Plan” of Executive Orders to be signed on inauguration day to immediately transform the way the executive branch works.
A training program for the transition teams and the appointees who will lead the shift back to Constitutional, limited government (coming soon);
A system of citizen involvement to help us sustain grassroots support for change and help implement the change through 2021

Have NO fear..Newt is here to stay…He WILL lead us back to posterity ..I am #withNewt..hope you join him too!
