The Party belongs to the People, not the Insiders!

If you're an establishment Republican who votes the way the leadership wants you to so that you can get favors brought back to your district and you can climb through the GOP ranks, how do you defend your voting record if there are fellow Republicans who won't play the Washington Game?
Well, you have to discredit their behavior…Continue

Congressman Bill Shuster’s “Bill PAC” donated $5,000 to Democrat Mike Fleck of the 81st state house district on Nov. 5, 2014, the day before the General Election.
Why? Because he was a “friend of Bill’s?

The following resolution has been signed by 52 members of the Blair County Republican Committee, and 14 members of the Indiana County Republican Committee:
We Republican Committee members in Blair County, do hereby express our disappointment in Congressman Shuster for his vote on December 11, 2014, in favor of H.R. 83, the so-called “Cromnibus” $1.1 trillion, 1,600 page spending bill.…Continue
Last fall, about 200 voters heard 9th District Pennsylvania Congressman Bill Shuster that he “looked forward” to the opportunity for a debate with his opponents in the Republican Primary. We heard it with our own ears. Now, of course, his campaign team is trying its best to keep him from doing just that.

I hear conservatives complain about the GOP all the time.
"The party left me, I didn't leave the party."
"The Republican Party doesn't fight for conservative values."
"The Republicans don't want to run on conservative ideas."
How many of these frustrated conservatives know about the local county Republican Committee?
How many have actually run for a committee seat in their precinct?
These same people tell you it's time for a third…Continue

On July 4th, as we celebrate our Founders’ decision to exercise our right to be a nation sovereign from the King of England, it seems like an appropriate time to reflect upon the legacy of America, and whether or not we have lived up to our promise to be a nation built on the principle that people are born to be free and autonomous, and have the right to live with minimal government intervention.
Our nation, founded on the principle of…Continue
Recently, RNC Chairman Reince Preibus stated on Fox News that Primary contests are "healthy for the party." Certainly, national voters would be quite upset if the RNC endorsed a candidate today and effectively ended the contest for our Presidential nominee.
So why is Pennsylvania so different?
Only 3 state Republican committees endorse a candidate before the Primary: Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey.
How do the other states get by without…Continue

Recently, PaGOP party chair Rob Gleason apparently criticized Sarah Palin. “I don’t think theater wins elections,” he stated in regard to her bus tours. “I am looking for party builders.”
Wouldn’t you think the Chair of the state GOP would know something about party-building? Shouldn’t his opinion carry…Continue
It has come to our attention that the Chairman of the Somerset County GOP intentionally ignored write-in votes for dozens of vacant committee person seats on the May 2010 ballot.
The Philadelphia GOP was threatened with a lawsuit last year when they tried to do the exact same thing. The Philadelphia GOP then took the write-in candidates.
A source reports that in a western county, the county GOP Chairman says it's "ok" for his Democrat friend to serve on the county GOP Executive Committee! After all, they're friends!
This source says she had to "beg" the employee at the county Elections office to provide her with a copy of the GOP Committee bylaws, which are supposed to be open to the public. She stated that the Democratic bylaws had a note on them which said "closed to the public."
Do you still think our GOP…Continue

I wanted to share with you this interesting letter from today's Altoona Mirror:
It was frustrating to read the Aug. 3 story about Congressman Shuster's public meeting ("Shuster gets an earful at event").
The sort of bizarre, foolish questions and comments he had to endure from a handful of people apparently claiming to be "conservatives" were not representative of the Republican party.
These individuals and their statements lead me to believe that they are…
