Strategy To Remain On Offense Keeps House In GOP Hands

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is a political committee devoted to maintaining and increasing the 239-member Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.

To win in 2012, you had to understand 2010.

Republicans made historic gains two years ago – defeating Democrats in every region of the country and evicting Nancy Pelosi from the Speaker’s chair. These wins were born out of America’s frustration with Washington. For two years straight, Democrats ruthlessly forced a big-government, Washington-knows-best agenda on the American people. It was a disaster for the economy

Elizabeth Warren Loves China Ad, Really?

What is it with the left and their admiration for China? Elizabeth Warren's most recent ad claims we should be more like China since they build a lot of roads. This is the same Elizabeth Warren whose claim of being part Native America got her a minority status at Harvard, even with her blonde hair and blue eyes, and who influenced Obama famous “You really didn’t build that” speech. I will give Warren credit, she has no problem in claiming her roots as a true lefty, and Massachusetts is one of the few states where "let be like China" might actually sell. The ad should give one pause on the direction of where the Democratic Party is headed.   Read more »

Congressman Ted Poe Interview about Attorney Gen. Holder's Judiciary Committee Testimony

The 2012 Election: PART II; Fortune Cookie Economics v. A Job Creating Free Market

We have professional politicians running our country whose theory on government is a mess, to say the least. These policy makers and elected officials lack the clarity, simplicity, and intellectual honesty to live up to free market ideals that helped form our way of life as the United States of America. This over regulation has strangled and put our economy in a straight jacket leading to our unspoken depression as a nation. Even a high dose of Prozac or Zoloft could not clear the fog now.

Bringing Americans Together for the Good of the Country

The political mood in America is extremely volatile these days. In 2008, the American voters were upset with the policies of the George W. Bush administration and turned over Congress to the Democrats while electing Barack Obama president of the United States. Two years later, disenchanted with the policies of the Obama Administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress, Americans voted the Democrats out of power in the House of Representatives.   Read more »
