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.
