My Valentine Wish for America’s Daughters

Growing up and learning about love in America these days is challenging. Attacks on marriage abound.

The very idea of wanting to find true love and happy marriage is scorned in some circles as antiquated, prudish, culturally and economically unnecessary in modern America, a signal of weakness, or in some other way just so “yesterday’s America.” The 2011 Census reported only 48% of households were comprised of married people,

MLK, The Declaration and The America Dream

Today, as we all rightly honor the invaluable contributions Dr. Martin Luther King made to American culture and society, we should also ask ourselves, “What steps can America make today to further his beautiful and important dream that …”

“ …my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

What Our Veterans Did

My dad passed away earlier this year, and he was one of the hundreds if not thousands of World War II veterans who now seem to be passing away daily. He served in the Army, in Japan only, but one part of his military experience speaks volumes about the nobility of America’s motives for war, and of our place in the world as standard-setters for military actions.   Read more »

Yes, Virginia Voters, There is a Consequence

Dear Virginia Voters,

Your vote in the Virginia governor’s race on November 5th means so much to Americans in the other 49 states.

There is a widespread and growing national angst about our country, a sense that something is very wrong. It is a feeling that our country is being taken over by people who want to take over the people. It’s a deep-in-the-gut-level knowing that the liberty-based lifestyle Americans have enjoyed, is at great risk.   Read more »

Honoring the Victims and Heroes of September 11th: A Fresh Look

Twelve years ago today, Americans awoke to the news of the formerly unthinkable, a terrorist attack on our soil with massive casualties. Nearly 3,000 Americans perished in attacks orchestrated by Islamic jihadists, part of the decades-long war they had been fighting against America, unacknowledged by us.

Today we also sadly commemorate the one-year anniversary of the attack on American diplomats in Benghazi in which U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three others were killed by jihadists.

Honoring the memories of those who perished, the incredible bravery of the first responders, and the families who lost precious loved ones, requires two things:

(1) Acknowledging the truth about who attacked us and why, and (2) Vigilantly protecting against any possible future incidents. If we cannot do # 1 correctly, we will never be able to do #2.   Read more »

Labor Day, Freedom & the Assault on the American Work Ethic

For many throughout world history and today, the idea of a holiday celebrating work would be at least bizarre. Hard workers the world over, slaves in anti-bellum America and in other countries, medieval serfs in feudal Europe, powerless peasants coerced to work in collective farms and factories under communism, and literally millions around the world, experience work as forced, and largely unrewarded, labor.   Read more »

Savvy Women and Savvy Thinking: Smart Girl Politics Summit 2013

Lots of insightful women thinkers converged on the Smart Girl Politics 2013 Summit in Indianapolis. While I came to listen and learn, I also came to offer for sale my book, Ladies, Can We Talk? America Needs Our Vote! Sharing the book’s message about the power of women to impact the national political conversation was a great segue to conversations with Summit-goers about how important it is for women to speak up for America.

Top Takeaways from the SGS2013 at the close of this first day of the Summit:   Read more »

Rafael Cruz Endorses Debbie Georgatos’ book, Ladies, Can We Talk? America Needs Our Vote!

Rafael Cruz, the father of Texas’ great senator Ted Cruz, works tirelessly to inform voters all over America of the dangers of letting America’s far left Democrats lead our country down to the pits of socialism. His early life in Cuba makes him a first hand witness to the evils of tyranny and socialism. He is also a pastor, and works to encourage other pastors to speak more freely in the pulpit about the issues America is facing. He is a powerful and persuasive advocate for liberty.   Read more »

RedState 2013 Rocked! Part Three: Nikki Haley at RedState 2013

Erick Erickson’s RedState gathering for 2013, held in New Orleans over the first weekend in August, featured so many great speakers that it is not possible or reasonable to write about all of them. Governors, senators, members of Congress, and candidates for all of those positions, spoke, and all were confident, articulate and passionate.

Working for years now with so many Republican women’s organizations in Texas and nationally, I am very aware that many brilliant and thoughtful women are active in Republican politics. While that is great news, it is also true that not enough of them choose to run for public office.   Read more »

RedState 2013 Rocked! Part Two: Calling in the Cavalry

The fifth annual RedState convention in New Orleans, RedState 2013, over the first weekend in August, featured plenty of stellar Republicans, conservatives, governors, senators, Congressmen and candidates. RedState Founder Erick Erickson screens, selects and invites the speakers, so their caliber reflects his.

Many speakers addressed not only the leftists who are desperately working to destroy our liberties and free market system,
