DO WE HAVE THE GOVERNMENT WE DESERVE?
CAN WE DO BETTER??
THE FITCHBURG REPUBLICAN CITY COMMITTEE WANTS AND NEEDS YOUR HELP!!
Unfortunately our Republican candidates and the Party was defeated in November 2012. We were defeated, but we are not gone!! We are dusting ourselves off and are coming back, stronger than ever. We have many ideas on how to attract new members to join the Party as well at to attend our monthly meetings to help in our activities throughout the year.
Why did we lose, because in part because we did not have YOU. YOU didn't become involved and participate, you let others do the work. We were willing and able, but fell short. It is now your time to join in and help. We don't need you sitting home feeling sorry for yourself and asking how could "he" have been re-elected. There are local elections in 2013, an unexpected Senate race, as well as U.S. House positions open again in 2014. There may also be some special elections in MA that will need all hands on deck to help get out the vote. Don't sit at home again this time. Join us this time. We could have made a difference in 2012, but we didn't have enough supporters to help us get out our vote. Don't let this happen again. If you had joined us, we may have changed the results!

In a "Boston Herald" editorial the writer addresses the sway in public opinion from a fear of big business to big government. It appears that more and more people are afraid that government is gaining too much influence and control over our lives.

Another case where Republican legislators are working hard to correct inequities in the system, in this case, the social welfare program. Can you imagine using taxpayer-funded EBT cards to purchase drugs from the corner store? We all need to thank our Republican/conservative legislatures who are trying hard to right a broken system.

Read the Guest Column by FRCC member Mary Lotze in Monday, December 12, 2011's "Sentinel and Enterprise"
On Thursday night, December 1 the Leominster Republican City Committee sponsored a Republican Rally to kick off the 2012 election season. Several hundred people attended the event to cheer on and thank our current office holders, those who made the honorable effort and have run for office and lost, and those who intend to run for office for the first time in 2012. Leominster's own Justin Brooks, who is a friend of our FRCC announced his intention to run for the MASS State House at last night's rally. The Columbia Hotel Ballroom was standing room only as speaker after speaker rallied the crowd with wisdom, faith, laughs and friendship. It is evident that government is broken at both the national and state level and change must be made starting with a balance of political perspectives. We can no loger live with one party-one idea rule that dictates police and executive leadership with a partisan hand. Currently we have an environment of gridlock where nothing gets done, this is unhealthy for positive growth in all sectors of society.
The Leominster GOP Rally was energizing and unifying. We need to build the "farm team" of committed Republicans and conservative Unenrolled voters on the local level to ensure that we identify, grow and supportgood, honest and ethical local candidates.
Have you ever wanted something really bad and then when you finally got it, it was not all that great? "New York Post" columnist, Michael Goodwin, in his article of November 30, 2011 referrs to President Obama as a "Bam-boozler". He posits that Obama ran for the presidency with zeal and enthusiasm, but now that he has the job, he refuses to do the work. This point was pronnounced when Gov. Chris Christie took on Obama's approach to doing his job by referring to him as a "bystander in the Oval Office". His rant to Obama, "What the hell are we paying you for?" was searing in its truth.

Just yesterday I posted a column from Star Parker on American Exceptionalism. As a humble woman from an impoverished upbringing, Star exudes pride in her country for the opportunities the nation has given her to succceed. Today on the FOX News early morning TV show, "Fox and Friends", Steve Doocy interviews Economics Professor Jack Chambless from Valencia College, Florida about a survey he conducted with his students regarding what they expect and want from the government. Opportunity that was Star Parker's ticket to the American Dream is least on their vast list of wants. Watch the entire video before your shake your head in shame. I don't think there is a question that this philosophical base is the root from where the Occupy Wall Street crowd got their will and misguided sense of entitlement. http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/fox-friends/index.html#/v/1300268927001/will-generation-gimme-work-for-the-american-dream/?playlist_id=86912
