I am new to the group and I just wanted to say how excited that I am to be a member. This is such a great group to have and I was not aware that it even exsisted.



I truly believe that the Republican party needs a complete overhaul so that more Americans will back them. I have considered joining the National Republican Party but they always want a donation and I am a working mother of two with very little to go around. I sincerely wish that groups such as ours could let our voices be heard among the National Party. We need leaders such as Sarah Palin that are not afraid to say what they think and fight for what they believe. We also need intelligent advisors that will not spend freely like the Democrats, so that we will not pass down such a financial hardship to our children and grandchildren.



One major first step to setting a wonderful example as the President of the United States would have been to state that there would be no money spent on an elaborate inaugaration. $150 million would have helped our economy and would have set a great example for all of the citizens of the United States about how to spend responsibly. (Even Bush spent $40 million on his inaugaration and that is way too much when we are in crisis.) Also, if the leader of our country whether he/she be a republican or democrat, would state that there would be no money spent on redecorating the White House when our country is in a financial crisis. That would be a great example. If you don't have it, you don't spend it.



We need to get back to the basics in the Republican Party. No more empty promises and trying to satisfy the left or the general public. We need to be real and fight for what we beleive in and stop being a doormat for the Democrats and media to run all over.

He actually has become quite amused by the harassment that he gets. We are careful to let our children know that there are two sides to every situation, sometimes it's hard not to interject our own personal opinions, but we do tell them. We've gone online with our kids and researched stuff in history, in the paper, etc....It's gotten to the point that my son will watch the news and hear something and respond with..."Well that makes no sense!!!" The things conservatives are pushing for are what makes sense, we have research to back it up, history to prove it, we just need to make sure our voices get heard!!!

I agree 100%! I think that every politician in Washington should be replaced with those who aren't corrupted by lobbyists. Our founding fathers had a dream in mind of a country that works together, not one that is so divided like we are today. It seems there is no compromise anymore.

Kirsten- your son should remind his teachers that Obama is half white and that we would not have a democracy if there was no opposition.

DS had a teacher last semester who was obviously an Obama fan and he would come home and talk about some of the discussions. It was funny because when I pointed a few things out and he brought them up in class, suddenly the topic was dropped.

We discuss things with our kids but are very careful to tell them to figure things out for themselves. We don't want them parroting what we say, we want them to know both sides and make their own informed decision.

Quoting Kristi:

I think that as parents we need to discuss politics with our children. It seems that in every school/university, they are being taught nothing but liberal ideals. I was brought up thinking that I was a democrat because my whole family was...I was never taught what it was to be a Democrat or Republican. All I know is that if it wasn't for FoxNews, there would be NO support for any Republican out there. I am tired of the media bashing Republicans and glamorizing the Democrats.... it needs to end!


I completely agree with you about discussing politics with our children! We have had countless talks around the dinner table about socialized healthcare, entitlements, taxes etc.  My son (10 years old) has debated in school with his teachers about some of his beliefs and has been ridiculed by other students, called a racist for not supporting Obama and made to feel so rejected it's ridiculous. I think we are dealing with a generation of people coming up that have been indoctrinated to believe that being a liberal democrat is the way to be.  It's amazing that when you talk to so many people who claim to be a democrat on a point to point basis usually they fall right in line with conservative viewpoints, the minute they realize that, the conversation is over!  It is like you are attacking the very core of who they are by suggesting they might not be a liberal as they think they should be. it's a very sad situation if you ask me.

Did you know that most of that $140 million was private donations? because of that, I am not worried about the money. It was used to stimulate the economy in DC for a short time at least.

As for the party, yes it needs work. I was disappointed that McCain received the nomination. But I think that Palin will come back in a few years and she would do us proud.

This is great...it's hard to find conservative women who actually voice their opinions!! That's the biggest problem! We need to instill in our children responsibility, patriotism, faith, and self-reliance. Our kids see so much today that they are entitled to whatever they want regardless of how hard they work for it, if they work at all. This breeds a generation of kids that don't see the point of working hard to get ahead in life...why bother, when you can have a better life by sitting on the couch with your hand out!

I completely agree with you.  In order for the Republican party to win and be relevant, we have to be able to compete in the suburbs.  In order to do that, I think we have to emphasize fiscal responsibility for the government and personal responsibility for individuals.  Those two issues go hand in hand.  The government won't be fiscally responsibility so long as people, auto companies, banks, etc. have their hands out.  And people will continue to put their hand out so long as the government is promising to give it out.  We need candidates who can articulate why this vicious cycle must stop now.  There are some problems that the government simply must not even try to solve.

I absolutely agree with you.  The majority of polititians in office right now are corrupt including the republicans.  They need people in there that really care about their country and not just money and platforms.

I do think republican/conservative women are the future of the GOP.  I noticed that when the media attacked Sarah Palin for being a mother and running a lot of people came to her defense.  People that haven't put themselves in the spotlight before because they had no reason to.  The attacks on her were the thing republican women needed to start speaking out more.

Yes, Sarah Palin would be a grand leader for our progress. The media favors the liberals, the mass entertainers also favor Dems. but despite it all we stand for our beliefs.
