Message from the President
Many of us, not still wet behind the ears, yet optimistic conservatives, thought that two years ago when President Trump was being sworn into office, we were going to turn this ship around and fondly sail back into the America of our recollection. We knowingly faced such daunting issues as, rampant election fraud, proposals for universal basic income, challenged welfare drug testing, governmental imposed increases of minimum wage, proposed extreme income tax increase for the rich, proposed free health care and education, including college tuition for all (regardless of citizenship), the spreading epidemic of sanctuary cities and states, attempts to infringe on Second Amendment rights, and proposed decriminalization of drugs.
Not to mention, disputes over gerrymandering, net neutrality, the legality of flag burning, NSA domestic surveillance, social media regulation, term limits, affirmative action, eminent domain, labor unions, campaign finance, the electoral college, pension reform, and foreign tariffs to name just a few. Really, they are only a few!
In the 1980’s the following issues most concerned the American people:
Cities in Crisis - The troubling urban decline as the middle class continued to move to the suburbs while the homeless population swelled.
The War on Drugs - created as drug abuse grew exponentially, specifically cocaine and crack. Racial Tensions - The new fight for equality for Native Americans, Latinos, and the continued fight for African Americans.
Women’s Rights - The ratification of the ERA with an emphasis on equal pay.
Gay Rights - Protests, which led to anti discrimination legislation.
“A Nation at Risk” - An education report published in 1983, revealing that American students lagged behind those in other industrialized nations, especially in math and science.
I think all of us would concede these were problems worthy of our attention, money, and efforts. Fast-forward to 2019 and marvel with me at what preoccupies at least half of America today.

This ain’t your grandmother’s America!
This isn’t even the America where most of us grew up.
We need to stand up, speak out, and fight!
