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!

Holly Robichaud, in her "Boston Herald" column, Monday, October 31, 2011 discusses the Democratic Party's selection of candidates who will run for public office. Once Obama identified Elizabeth Warren as the candidate who would run against Senator Scott Brown, one by one the competition fell by the wayside. So too, our own John Olver was steadfast that as the incumbent he would again run for his position as US Representative, MA District 1. Then he realized that his Party was planning to cut him loose. How quickly John Olver's retoric changed from running to retirement in the blink of the eye. Read Holly's column: http://bostonherald.com/news/columnists/view.bg?articleid=1377188
U.S. Representative for the 1st District, John Olver has decided to retire and devote his time to his family and wife who is suffering. Is this a surprise? Does anyone care? Will anyone miss him? Did John already know that he was going to get a "Dear John" letter? Read more in the "Sentinel and Enterprise", October, 27, 2011, about Olver's decision to step down and other potential local candidates who may be interested in running for the new seat:
Despite the national trend to move their votes to a more conservative, and yes, Republican legislature, Massachusetts remained steadfast in Democratic dominance returning all 10 US Representatives back to Washington. How could the Massachusetts voter remain so blind asked many out-of- staters who were agast that we could ever send the likes of Barney and the gang back to Congress. Where did the Massachusett voter go wrong? Perhaps it was the Republican Party leadership in Massachusetts that failed to support excellent candidates in the 2010 election; we can only speculate. Now we have new leadership at helm of the State Republican Party. Read Peter Lucas' column in the "Sentinel and Enterprise", October 25, 2011 and determine for yourself if Frank McNamara is "the one" to pull Massachusetts out its liberal swamp.
What do the former Massachusetts Republican candidates for the US House of Representatives think of the redistricting plans? Although these will not be finalized until mid-November, Sean Bielat, Jon Golnik and Bill Hudak speak out about redistricting and their plans to run again in the "Boston Herald" column on October 24, 2011: http://www.bostonherald.com/news/politics/view/2011_1024republicans_slam_plan_forredistricting/
Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren is showing her true colors of elitism as she disdainfully remarks that she is after the "hick" vote. Is she really any different than Martha Coakley?

Obama was at it again, he wanted to apologize to the people of Nagasaki and Hiroshima for Truman's decision to drop the atomic bomb in 1945. Read the "Boston Herald" opinion piece on Saturday, October 15, 2011, "No Apologies Needed" . Today we can debate President Truman's decision to end the war through the use of the atom bomb, but in 1945, this appeared to be the only way out of a long, horrific and costly war.
