Every major election, we hear from moderate republicans that the party needs to move to the center and become democrat light, to have a bigger tent and to ignore or not discuss our conservative principals. I don’t’ agree with them. I believe we need to be boldly different than the liberals, as Ronald Reagan believed. "Our people look for a cause to believe in. Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people" Ronald Reagan to CPAC 1975.

I believe in the RNC platform and the Illinois GOP platform. I believe we need to be proud of our conservative values and let the voters know there is a clear alternative to the liberal and socialist agenda of the Democratic Party.

With the upcoming Republican Primary, the Republican Party will also hold elections for Precinct Committeeman. This is a great opportunity for conservatives to get involved in the party, help shape the party and work to ensure conservatives win the primary and are ultimately victorious in the general election.
