  1. Purge the RINOs

    Michael Steele needs to organize EVERY elected GOP official (senators, congressmen, state senators, republicans elected to Obama's cabinet, etc. etc.)in one room and have a show of hands on different issues. Such as:

    Belief in evolution (WRONG)
    Belief in global warming (WRONG)
    Pro choice (WRONG)
    Pro immigrant (WRONG)
    Pro bipartisanship (WRONG)
    Ever used to be a democrat (LIARS)

    Anyone who does not adhere to the party line will be kicked out...let them start their own failed party..The people will see we do not tolerate FALSE VALUES and flock back to us, they are fed up with a wishy washy republican…

    • Adopt the "fusionism" of Reagan, Buckley, and Goldwater!

      Fusionism is an American political term for the combination or "fusion" of libertarians and traditional conservatives in the American conservative movement. Fusionism saw its height during the presidency of Ronald Reagan and in the immediate aftermath of the Republican takeover of Congress in 1994.

        • American Restoration Proposal

          I believe that our party needs to do a better job at articulating, or
          rather dare I say, selling our still-strong ideals. I think that we
          must take a herculean effort to restore the checks and balances eroded
          by 'progressives' in the 20th Century.

          I believe that we can achieve this through the following actions:

          1. Repeal the 16th amendment to the constitution (Income Tax) and
          enact the Fair Tax (or some version thereof). ~ Bring us back to a
          culture in which we work for ourselves, not for the government!

          2. Repeal the 17th amendment to the constitution (direct…

          • MySpace, Facebook and Internet Groups

            After the election, frustrated, I went crazy and went to Meetup.com, Myspace, Facebook, googled for Jindal, Palin and other politican support groups and anywhere else I could find to join conservative groups. I was dismayed, and quite AMAZED to find an extreme shortage of groups and low membership in those that did exist. We know 1) the future of politics is the internet 2) the next generation/youth overwhelming favors the internet for news/communication 3) A big reason Obama/Democrats won was by overwhelming political contribututions and networking online . . .chop chop, people . .we need to start "moving" now .…

              Mission Statement

              To promote and defend the great American principles of individual liberty, constitutional government, sound money, free markets, and a noninterventionist foreign policy, by means of educational and political activity.

              • Stop Monopolies that are Too Big to Fail!

                We were told by Paulson that the banking interests were too big to fail.
                ???
                Why? Because the government has allowed monopolies to develop to 1) Boost Wall-Street temporarily and 2) Make corporations easier to monitor and control.
                !!!
                Remember when Cingular bought AT&T, then AT&T bought Cingular back within a couple years? That enriched a very few extremely rich people twice, then diminished service for all the CONTRACTED customers who couldn't escape!
                Then, Sprint buys Nextel and Verizon buys Alltel. Fewer choices, less competition, companies that are too big to fail.
                !?!?!?
                No business should be so big that…

                  Mitt Romney for President...It's simple. He has economic experience. That's what we need. And he is a conservative!

                  • Energy Independence - A Comprehensive Plan

                    We need a comprehensive plan to achieve energy independence - a plan that will make this a reality in a few years - not the 10-20 years politicians have been telling us the past 10-20 years. It is going to take all of the Pickens plan, all of the Dill here - Drill now plan, and even pieces of Al Gore's plan (minus the carbon tax) Sending almost a trillion dollars overseas every year to meet our energy needs is not a path for success - Independence is!

                    • Identify Party Support and Principals

                      This is taken from my blog at http://rebuildingtheparty.blogspot.com/

                      Historically, the Republican Party acts as an umbrella to three schools of political thought. The Democrat and Republican Party acts as the coalition of a majority that is found in parliamentary style governments. The difference between our government and that of European parliamentary style governments is that we form coalitions outside the election cycle to gain a majority while parliamentary governments form them after the election cycle. The Republican Party is now in shambles because the leadership has refused to except that it is a coalition of thought, and instead, wants to…

                      • Never Ever Compromise Conservatism

                        Though John McCain is someone who most definitely deserves our respect and admiration for being a war hero, he is by no means a conservative. When conservatism is compromised by "reaching across the aisle", the hand you reach across with is always bitten by the Democrats. Compromising conservatism fails, every time.

                        - Find the next Ronald Reagan
                        - Promote your core beliefs
                        - Run the party without fear of being called names; they will call you names anyway
                        - Your opposition DOES NOT LIKE YOU, and never will. Stop trying to appease the left by acting like the left.

                        • Build effort to TEACH people how to run for local office!

                          Currently most of the local party groups are essentially "dead" they are coffee & drink gatherings for OLD nearly dead people who have ZERO desire to run for office.

                          Nothing DYNAMIC happens at local meetings -- any one with NEW ideas is typically squelched or driven off because they are not "part of the old club" -- within 10 years that old club will LITERALLY be dead or in nursing homes... and where will any NEW members (much less potential candidates) come from?

                          • Focus on decentralization and pluralism

                            Republicans know that the federal government can't solve all of our problems. But this has all too often come across as a view that the problems that Democrats seek to solve are not worrisome, or do not deserve to be addressed in an organized way. Standing in opposition to humanitarianism and compassion is a sure recipe for failure.

                            So instead, a different way of saying the same thing is to focus on decentralization and pluralism. Basically, the idea here is that the federal government doesn't need to be the one to solve social problems, and in fact it shouldn't be.…

                            • articulate vision of limited government, not "no gov't".

                              What I mean by this is that our message of limited government is often confused for no government. What we want is streamlined government that works, not "no government" at all. This has policy implications; namely, that we will provide tax deductions in health care that promote portability and savings, tax deductions on working college students to incentivize getting a college degree while lessening the burden of higher education costs, etc. You get the idea.

                              So how about it?: "Streamlined government that works for you."

                              • Leave Abortion to the States

                                The issue of Abortion needs to be erased from the republican montra and pushed off onto the states...The republicans have been sewn to pro-life which turns away millions of votes just on that reason alone...Yes we personally are pro-life, but thats where it should end...We need to start seperating ourselves with the stigma of religious, pro-life nuts and start pushing our heart and sole of the party, small government, energy self reliance, low tax and start connecting with the youth...We gotta get some skip in our step!

                                • become a defender of the US Constitution

                                  All of our problems as the United States of America, could have been easily avoided had our elected officials upheld strict adherence to the Oath of Office they took when they entered office, and defended the US Constitution.

                                  The country described by the US Constitution is a beautiful idea, but currently, our country looks barely anything like it - it is a shadow of it's former self

                                  China is only years away from challenging America as an economic superpower - and more regulation and more bureaucracy will only make us more socialistic - it will not enable our country to…

                                  • Promote a "Contract with America's Children"

                                    Some of this is reminiscent of the 12 steps of AA. Given the level of drunkenness in DC, it seems appropriate.

                                    We, who wish to represent you in DC, pledge the following not to you, to whom politicians always lie, but to your children, who can stop our pension payments and who will write our history.

                                    1. We will balance the Federal Government's budget not in 10 years, nor next year, but this year. It will be tough, but we'll do it. After all, you can't do more than fall behind if you're borrowing to meet your daily obligations.

                                    • abandon fear

                                      Rove's machine worked. He effectively microtargeted small segments of the population and created wedges to drive them away from the Democrat party. Problem is, after 8 years, the machine backfired. People divided stayed divided and remained fearful...of everything. That's why McCain and Palin were forced into going negative. Our base was programmed to respond to FEAR. "He'll meet without pre-conditions, he's friends with a terrorist, his middle name is Hussein, he'll kill your babies." People voted for McCain and Palin out of fear of Obama, not out of dedication or excitement. That's why people are terrified of the new administration.…

                                      • Push deals of conservatism & push minority outreach

                                        When I listen to Newt Gingrich speak, I long for 1994-1995 when the GOP helped steer this country with their ideals: Smaller government, less taxation, encouraging entrepreneurship, the reform of government agencies, personal freedom and strong, but smart national defense. Those ideals are accepted by more Americans than 'progressive' ones. We need an RNC chair that will steer the party in that direction and make sure that the ideas and policies proposed are built on the foundation of those ideals.

                                        In addition, the RNC outreach to minority communities is pitiful . The social conservatives that so many believe should be…

                                        • Reach out to more Christians

                                          The Republican Party allows Democrats to play on the environmental and help-the-poor aspects of Christianity and attract a TON of Christians, especially Catholics. The Republican Party should emphasize to Christians of all parties that Democrats and their pro-choice, no personal responsibility stances are not Christian and that instead the Republican Party takes positive stances on helping those who need help but taking responsibility for yourself, having a strong value for life at all stages, and having environmental concerns while not going over the top. Christians need to realize that the Democratic stance is almost entirely un-Christian.
