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!

Tim Thomas and the Big Snub

A week ago, many non-sports fans never heard of Bruins goalie Tim Thomas.  Thomas is a self-studied conservative who is somewhat vocal in his disdain with the leadership in Washington.   When the winning Stanley Cup Bruins team was invited to the White House for the winners photo op with Barak Obama, Mr. Thomas opted not to attend for personal political reasons.  However, the press and the media won't let it rest.  This has been a hot topic that every columnist, pundit and talk host has commented on.  In most cases, the bottom line appears to be based on one's personal opinion of the president.  Now however, pundits are getting outrageous.  In "Boston Herald" article by Steve Conroy, Saturday, January 28, 2012, TSN Analyst, Dave Hodge tweeted his suggestion that Tim Thomas has three children all who have first names beginning with the letter "K" ...  Read the "Herald's" article:
