Displays of Integrity from fellow Republicans

This is a recount from a fellow Republican Chair on Saturday’s conferee event which led to the selection of Rick Saccone as our nominee for the 18th District Congressional seat. Bravo Guy and Kim!! This is who we want to be!

Friends,   As you know by now, Representative Rick Saccone was chosen by 215 conferees that met in Washington County on November 11th, to be the candidate to replace Tim Murphy in the 18th Congressional District on the Republican ticket.   When Tim Murphy resigned, four people threw their hats into the ring and set off a frantic race to garner the crucial conferees needed for nomination. I said at the time that Murphy’s sudden departure would probably cause division and strain friendships as various factions supported different candidates to fill his seat.   That happened to some degree but having had the honor to be a conferee today ...

Republican History Bite

Sarah Buell Hale loved the ritual of Thanksgiving.  Mrs. Hale was a writer publishing a novel in 1827 which described in great detail the physical and sentimental manifestation of a family feast.  She describes a table draped in bleached white damask preparing the household event where every child had a seat for the occasion.  She describes the honor of a man to sit at the head of a copious Thanksgiving dinner before his large family;  the farmer being particularly proud of the display of abundance and prosperity of a season’s worth of work.  She describes the roasted turkey taking its “lordly station” next to the savory stuffing exuding a particularly rich odor of basting.   She describes choice fowl pastries, wine tumblers, huge plum puddings, custards and pies of “every name and description ever known in Yankee land.”  She revered this celebration and went on a determined pursuit to declare it a national holiday.

QVGOP Think Tank

We know our country is changing

We know our form of government is in question

We know we have detached from the US Constitution

We must discuss how we, as Americans, define the role of government 

Begin to consider issues with that question in mind.

So begin here…..What do you think of...
