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!

Columnist Star Parker writes about "American Exceptionalism" and fears that this feeling of pride in our country's greatness is waning in the minds of many, primarily in our youth.

In Peter Lucas' column in the "Sentinel and Enterprise", Friday, November 25, 2011 he discusses Governor Deval Patrick's latest writing initiative. Patrick's new book, yet untitled, will be about the politics of conviction. Unlike his previous tome, however, this book will not come with an up-front financial contract, possibly because "Reason" was not a big seller. Our Govenor will have to write this one on his own time, obviously carving out some free time in his hectic schedule to write. Peter outlines the typical Patrick day-long schedule. Appalling is one word that comes to mind!!! So as we see in the news that crime is up, employment opportunities remain dismal, education and our school system is failing our children, we can rest assure that our Governor Patrick is on top of it all, wrestiling and juggling his hectic schedule to honor his committment to the State residents.

In DeRoy Murdock's column "Sentinel and Enterprise", Monday, November 21, 2011 we are informed about Puerto Rico's Republican Governor, Luis G. Fortuno who was inaugurated into his first term as governor only two weeks before Barack Obama in January 2009. Because of Governor Fortuno 's hard stand against government over spending and deficit reduction, in just three years he has taken Puerto Rico, ranked number 51 after the 50 states in the union to number 15. Governor Fortuno claims to gets his inspiration from Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. Read DeRoy Murdock's column: http://www.sentinelandenterprise.com/opinion/ci_19382467
Columnist Peter Lucas sees some political changes as a result of the redistricting plan. In his article in the "Sentinel and Enterprise" Friday, November 18, 2011 he finds some vunerability in the Democratically held stronghold of current US House delegation, especally in light of some readjustments of cities and towns in the mix.

Bill O'Reilly posits in his column, "Boston Herald" Saturday, November 19, 2011 that the media will again support the candidate Obama over his Republican challenger; however, this time it won't be as obvious as in 2008. Because Obama's polls numbers are low, the media must be more creative in presenting Obama in a positive light, capturing Obama as a good family man with a happy children and championing him as the central figure in other positive situations. The campaign of the Republican candidate must be as skilled as a surgeon when facing off against Obama's record. Although his Presidency has been dismal the media will likened the challenger to a bully who is out to get the genteel family man.

Based on an article in the "Sentinel and Enterprise" Friday, November 18, 2011, Senator Flanagan and Representative DiNatale claim that they were unable to change the redistricting plan as there was no alternative ways to equalize the population within the new districts. Absolutely by keeping their particular districts as they were, was desirable for both pols; however, it remains beyond comprehension that there was no other way to redistrict that would have kept Fitchburg, Gardner and Leominster in the same district. It still seems apparent that the result of the proposed redistricting plan is to divide a burgeoning Republican/Conservative bloc in North Central MA.
